Default Fraud or hoax

Hi All,
Found this on the BMJ. The link is the responses make interesting reading.
The substance of the peice is that a learned man offered to present to a CAM conference on the subject of buttock reflexology and they took his reputation as level 5 evidence and allowed him 15mins on the platform. He then published the hoax in the BMJ. The hoaxed of course claim fraud but they would.

I am a little sad that it is a hoax.

The concept of the bumunculus should live forever in the annals (I forego my right to the obvious humerous typo).
