Hoax causes problems for National Geographic

Aw, come on. It’s fantastic — but clearly a hoax. Figures some Canadian was behind it.
“Skeleton of Giant” Is Internet Photo Hoax

The National Geographic Society has not discovered ancient giant humans, despite rampant reports and pictures.
The hoax began with a doctored photo and later found a receptive online audienceâ..thanks perhaps to the image’s unintended religious connotations.
A digitally altered photograph created in 2002 shows a reclining giant surrounded by a wooden platformâ..with a shovel-wielding archaeologist thrown in for scale.
