A.P.R.I.L. F.O.O.L.S. One sketchy story
Sorry to disappoint everyone who thought they had yet another reason to despise New York City's children of privilege: Our March 30 feature article on Sindergarten, the "twisted, drug-fueled phenomenon that's sweeping Manhattan prep schools," was a hoax concocted by RadarOnline.com prankster Teddy Wayne (who has previously pranked military recruiters as well as actor Willie Aames and the Milwaukee power tool company for us) and written under the pseudonym Edward Wain. A few astute readers called our bluff, but the majority bought the idea that high schoolers really were renting out school buses, taking the club drug Foxy, and pretending to be little kids.
