Roll eyes Snopes.com claims 'news' story with Flint, Michigan, ties a hoax

A "news" story that made the rounds online for years has been confirmed to be a hoax by Snopes.com, a debunker of urban legends based in California.

Wow, "confirmed to be a hoax" is a clunky phrase. They really wanted to refer to the ULRPs as a "debunker," didn't they?

I personally would say the story was debunked, and the ULRPs are urban legends investigators.
