    I think MAW is ok.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Make-A-Wish_Foundation says: "In January 2008 the satirical news site The Onion produced a parody video claiming that Make-a-Wish Foundation was bankrupted due to a child's wish for "infinite wishes." The video was apparently so convincing that some people believed it was real and it had to be debunked by the urban legends web site Snopes."

    I think this is the original:

    and here is the snopes link:

    I was hoping to get more responses like Beeslave's before I got busted.

    You know it had to be fake when the woman reporter said she hoped he died soon!!

    To me that is a pretty tasteless video even if it is a prank.
