Baby Yahoo was a hoax.

Remember the story about the romanian couple that named their baby Yahoo because they met over the net? Even CNN Money picked up the news, which was quite belivable after all the brand your baby hype which might have started back in 2000 when Iuma.com promised 5000 dollars to anyone who named their baby after their site, and Iuma Dylan-Lucas won the cash.
Turns out the yahoo baby was a hoax, and the reporter Ion Garnod who faked the story has been fired from the Romanian tabloid Libertatea.

Who knew tabloid papers had some sort of ethics? ;)
