FAKEBOOK Not Bilawal

It seems Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the 19-year-old Oxford student and co-head of his late mother Benazir Bhutto's political party in Pakistan, isn't actually a fan of The West Wing, Curb Your Enthusiasm, M. Night Shyamalan films, and Philip K. Dick: his widely circulated Facebook profile (posted by, um, us) is said to be fake. In the true spirit of Facebook, the prankster mainly used the account to befriend "a ridiculous number of hot Pakistani girls," so all was not lost.

One bizarre tidbit: an article written by a friend of Bhutto's in the Times of London says of Bilawal, "I have always known him as one of Benazir's three children, for whom she and I drove around London buying Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic books." Bilawal's interest in Buffy, of course, was the aspect of his online identity we picked up on. The Times article was published before the fake Facebook profile started making the rounds. We're big Alyson Hannigan fans here at; fake Facebook page our not, it's nice to know Bilawal's a kindred spirit.
