An Australian man who made international headlines last week after his Facebook account was repeatedly shut down for using the Vietnamese name “Phuc Dat Bich” has just admitted that he made the whole thing up.

In a statement posted online, Bich (who now refers to himself as Joe Carr) wrote:

Do you remember the story; The boy who cried wolf? Imagine that boy grew up into a mischievous man with 21st Century technology at his finger tips...What started as a joke between friends, became a prank that made a fool out of the media.

I always assumed the boy who cried wolf was eventually been eaten by a wolf, but I guess this works, too.

Reports Yahoo News:

In a development that will no doubt delight the joker, media organisations had obtained at least two confirmations of his true identity Wednesday night — but with two different names.

Lemme guess: the two names were “Rita Ora” and “Nicole Scherzinger.”
