In addition to the Jet Blue flight attendant that went out with a slide down the emergency chute, the Internet was all abuzz yesterday with a story about "Jenny," a Wall Street assistant who apparently quit via white board.

Like the Jet Blue guy, “Jenny” really struck a cord with disgruntled workers the Internet over. In a series of photographed messages on white boardthat she allegedly mailed to several dozen colleagues, Jenny quit.

She called her boss out for spending nearly 20 hours of week playing Farmville and for calling her a HOPA (hot piece of a--).

(All explained on white board.)

For those of you who called it, here's your I-told-you-so moment — it was a hoax.

In a new post on the same site, thechive.com (which, incidentally is known for its hoaxes), “Jenny” delivers the message that it was a hoaxby — you guessed it — white board.

The stunt, which got over a million page views, was created by brothers John and Leo Resig, the same guys who did the Donald Trump leaves $10,000 tipand other hoaxes.

Jenny’s real name is Elyse Porterfield, and she’s a 22-year-old actress who recently moved to L.A. from Colorado. She got the job by responding to an ad calling for a girl-next-door type actresson the site actoractress.com.

The brothers Resig nebulously promise that you’ll be seeing more of Jenny: “You’ll see in the coming days she’s as smart as she is sexy,” they write in the it's-a-hoax post on theChive.

You may be seeing more of her than you bargained for – There’s already a Facebook page titled “1,000,000 Strong for Jenny DryErase to Pose in Playboy” that has over 500 people who “like this.”

Yeah, things move really fast on this series of tubes.

(Shout out to the late Ted Stevens.)

And, for the record that Jet Blue flight attendant, Steven Slater, is real. And he's still grinning from ear to ear!
