Looking back on "ping-pong" hoax against Buchtelite

As a former Buchtelite editor-in-chief, I must share this article with you.

In 1974, students pulled a prank on the student newspaper at UA by creating a phony table tennis team, and submitting articles and photos of the team's "successes." According to the article, the Buchtelite editors were among the last to learn it was a hoax.

Hilarious.
