It is important that you understand that the concept of Toothing – beaming a sexual text message to a random phone on a commuter-packed tube train – is a bit like going into a crowded nightclub, throwing a brick at the dancefloor with a love letter attached, and hoping that the person it hits will agree to sleep with you. It‘stechnically possible, and it‘snot going to happen. That made it even better when the whole world fell for it.

The whole world. —Toothing (The Triforce)

Wired confesses it was hoaxed.
