Liar, liar, pants on fire!

This final note today in which 10.2 million people are revealed as having been duped.

Maybe you, too, saw the video of a young woman who — we were led to believe — caught fire while doing that…Miley Cyrus dance.

Here, I’m sorry to have to tell you, is the truth. It was all made up. Jimmy Kimmel on his show last night admitted he faked the whole thing.

10.2 million people.

He did add at the end, by the way, “Thank you for helping us deceive the world and hopefully put an end to twerking forever.”
