One of these is the Real Bat Boy,
and the other is… an imposter!
I love this article in the Mar 5, 2002 issue of the Weekly World News, a tabloid magazine, no longer printed, that published weird fictional stories as if they were true.
In this article, they talk about someone having the audacity to impersonate Bat Boy:
Angry law-enforcement officials are warning the public not to be fooled by a cunning Bat Boy imposter — a 3-foot-tall former circus midget who has already hoodwinked at least 46 people coast to coast!
I love the idea of a tabloid reporting a fake story about a fake midget character impersonating a fake Bat Boy character.
I’m sure glad the real news media never resorts to this kind of chicanery…
Do not confuse this with actual journalism.
