Bureau of Misinformation
The Bureau of Misinformation exists to provide incorrect and often silly information to passers by.
- Misinformation Booth
- Get lied to, for free!
- Typical exchange: "Where is the closet porta-potty?" "Just walk that way (points to man), keep walking till you hit an orange fence, climb over and keep going until you see it..."
- 90% of people get the joke and laugh etc. 10% of people genuinely don't understand and take the misinformation as legit. It is up to the booth volunteer to decide whether to clue them in or not.
- Heckling stands
- A nice set of bleachers facing the street for camp members to heckle passers by with megaphones
The camp is usually located on the 9:00 thoroughfare, anywhere from Esplanade to G.
The Bureau of Misinformation has been on playa since 1956.
