A mysterious announcement popped up on the web a few weeks back declaring that a new car company called FOSH Automotive was about to drop a green bomb on the automotive industry. Their vehicle would be “the first unlimited mileage, electric car with a revolutionary, self-regenerating battery system.” Better yet, such amazing technology would retail below $25,000.” Sign up with your email address and they would update you on their progress.
Of course, bullshit meters went into the red all over the web — but some green sites remained optimistic for when the company would finally reveal its cards.
Turns out, it’s all a hoax — with the original “green car” site now displaying political rants against Barack Obama and showing photos of abortions. “For those that believe we are pulling a hoax,” the site says “You’re dead wrong. The real hoax is barack hussein obama and we are trying to make the world a better place by showing you how easy some people fall for what they want to believe. The United States of America, without the socialist, entitlement supporting, flip-flopping, lying, checkered past barack hussein obama as our leader, is better off, as is the world.”
Even worse, for all those that signed up to be on the “Fosh Automotive” mailing list, their address will now be used to some unknown political means. A truly deceptive tactic that I suppose should come as no surprise.
