First media and government redefine the word "hero", which used to mean something very different from it's current usage. Now it looks like the word "hoax" is under attack. Last time I checked a hoax was "An act intended to deceive or trick; Something that has been established or accepted by fraudulent means". How is putting up LED displays of cartoon characters deceptive, a trick, or fraudulent? I mean is the idea that these guys were actually trying to convince people that the cartoon character, Err , had come to life and manifested himself as an LED display?
