Dateline April 1, 2003:
Rec.Sport.Unicycling, the discussion group for unicycle enthusiasts, is under investigation for suspected subversive activities.
Sources say something is just not right. Despite drawing from six of the seven continents and consisting of every conceivable political/social/religious orientation, they all seem to get along. Especially puzzling to the authorities is the lack of personal flame wars so prevalent on other lists.
International experts are still trying to crack their code but have made progress on key terms such as Gazzalodi and Fireball.
Especially frustrating to the investigation is agents have been learning to ride unicycles with the intent to infiltrate their ranks, but once they are riders they are quickly assimilated into the group. Brainwashing experts are baffled.
The authorities are requesting your assistance. Please post any suspected suspicious activities right here and you will be contacted shortly by their agents in black suits.
