A Thursday #Haiku – This Day in History

In honor of The Great Moon Hoax of 1835, which entailed a series of six articles that were published by the New York Sun about fantastical creatures and civilizations having been discovered living on the moon, I give you today’s Haiku.  On wikipedia: According to legend, the New York Sun’s circulation increased dramatically because of the hoax and remained permanently greater than before, thereby establishing the New York Sun as a successful paper.

truth’s of little weight
when there’s a buck to be made
don’t you believe it
