Finally. Author and professional bullshit artist Gary Greenberg, who wrote and published a story today on his website claiming he was among the boys who smoked pot with NYT columnist David Brooks as a teenager, has come clean at the top of his fake story.

Here’s his disclaimer. And yes, it’s lame and late.

“Please note: What follows here is satire of the Juvenalian variety. I thought I embedded enough tipoffs, but then again I forgot how much stranger than fiction truth can be. So to those who thought it was real and suffered pain as a result, I apologize.”
