Jar'Edo Wens hoax
The Jar'Edo Wens hoax was a deliberately fictitious Wikipedia article, which existed for almost 10 years before being deleted in March 2015 after being tagged for deletion. It was the longest running hoax article in the history of Wikipedia. The article claimed to be about an Australian Aborigine god, and was likely simply the name "Jared Owens", with different punctuation and capitalization.
