This Day in Mythstory

This site will challenge your hoax detectors — just enough facts to ring true, enough humor to make the parodies appealing and likely to be repeated as fact.  This Day in Mythstory is written by Chris Regan, a humor writer formerly with “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

When the professionals hoax up history, at least they do it in good faith.

(This site is probably funnier if you know which parts are accurate, and which are not.  Basically, the historical events cited are real, though the reasons given are suspect.  Each of these pieces might make a good warm-up to get students discussing what is accurate, and what is humor.)
