Oh my lord, there’s a dead girl on Google Maps (…or not.)

So suppose you’re looking for some directions down Middle Road in Worcester, England. You click on the Google Maps street view and OH MY GOD THERE’S A DEAD GIRL RIGHT THERE ON THE STREET!!!!

AND THE GOOGLE VAN DIDN’T EVEN STOP?!! WE ARE LIVING IN A COLD AND HEARTLESS AGE!!! THESE ARE THE END TI–

… wait, what? She faked the whole thing? Turns out little Azura Beebeejaun — no, she’s not a Star Wars character; that’s her name — was just playing with her friends, and had no idea that a Google Maps van was close by. “I’m quite chuffed I’m on the internet,” she said. “It is quite funny and I can’t wait to tell my classmates when I go back to school.”

“Chuffed” is just such a delightful word. And that right there is an awesome little prank.
