A lady managed to get a lot of media to print a pack of lies. (Thanks to Colby Cosh and Private Eye). She likes her jokes, but in this case she says she wasn't even trying to get a joke to go viral--it was meant as an in-house thing. Mind you, she launched it before April 1, a day when she usually shines, because she was hoping somebody at least would believe the horseshit.
The Greek names made me think of the ending of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. In that case Nikos Papandropoulos was the inteded victim of a con, not the perpretator.
