    a Hoosier ST6 performance street tire that was made as an April fools’ joke by a creative internet forum member and it's still circulating on the internet.  Hoosier and Tire Rack did not participate in the creation or circulation of the announcement and no such tire exists. (they did a nice job on the pic)

    Nice job, but my favorite was a Lirpa Loof played by the SCCA's favorite prankster many years ago on Team.Net where he posted a fake press release saying that the SCCA and AMA (American Motorcycle Association) had decided to allow motorcycles to compete in Solo events.....

    Remember the guys who faked-up Hoosier tires? Gotta believe copyright laws were and are taken seriously, even if it's intended as a joke.

    The end result will probably be that some lawyers will get richer, and the court will find that comedic parody trumps copyright violation since no profit or damages resulted.....
