Alan Abel – Professional Media Prankster
Alan Abel is a man of many talents. Though he has impressed many with talents such as drum soloing, acting, filmaking, writing, and speaking, he is most famous, or should I say infamous for his pranks. Among his most famous is his S.I.N.A hoax, a fake organization created to convince people that there was an organization whose sole purpose was to clothe animals in the name of modesty. In truth, it was a satirical allegory making a statement on the issue of censorship. As with most of his work, his pranks carry a deeper meaning that, much like their comedic value, can only truly be appreciated from an arms length. For his library (and it’s a good one), check here!
