Horrible people made to look horrible

This story via Digby (and Bloomberg) pretty much made my day, in a sad, I-told-me-so kinda way:
US Uncut, a group protesting corporate tax issues and government service cutbacks, claimed responsibility for a fake press release that said General Electric Co. (GE) would return a "$3.2 billion tax refund.”
Whoops, the rumors of your corporate responsibility have been greatly exaggerated!

I imagine GE's actual plan is to use that cash to hold a surprise pizza party for the entire city of Schenectady. (Shhhhhhhh......)

ETA: You know who's probably having a really bad week? This guy.
