In China, a guy got arrested for making an alien and pretending it was real. Mostly by posting it on the Internet along with a tall tale of how he found it.

This was the alien:

Believable? Not very. Except if you're Chinese officials, who actually arrested the guy for disrupting public order by trying to mislead people. "I just wanted other people to believe that aliens existed," said the man.

God forbid anybody briefs them on the concept of Santa Claus. Somebody try to reach Bat Boy for comment.
