Oh, those hacker kids, getting up to no good on a holiday weekend by reviving the hip-hop generation's own "Elvis Alive And Eating Giant Sandwiches Somewhere Far Away" myth. A hacker collective calling itself (sigh) The Lulz Boat got all up in PBS' web site over the weekend as a protest against the public broadcasting organization's treatment of the forcibly-unclassified-document clearinghouse WikiLeaks, and in addition to hoarding a bunch of usernames and passwords they decided to engage in a little trickery involving the current whereabouts of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.

A screenshot of the hacked page:

And here's the lede, which one hopes set off the bs detectors of any Googlers who happened upon the story:

Prominent rapper Tupac has been found alive and well in a small resort in New Zealand, locals report. The small town - unnamed due to security risks - allegedly housed Tupac and Biggie Smalls (another rapper) for several years. One local, David File, recently passed away, leaving evidence and reports of Tupac's visit in a diary, which he requested be shipped to his family in the United States.

Jeez, kids—if you're going to try and pull off a journalistic masquerade because you're protesting a piece of journalism, you might want to learn AP Style/how to string together a sentence? You know, just to be on equal footing with the people you're criticizing. (Not that their relative lack of English-language competency stopped them from being all self-congratulatory, mind you.)
