True Austin Facts: tweeting the funniest lies about Austin. Photo by: Rosalinda Valdez

From Misprint Magazine to a Twitter handle devoted to repeating things John Aielli says verbatim (@eklektikos), Austin has no shortage of creative parodies.

Our current favorite addition to the Twitter party (which has actually been around for almost two years) is @TrueAustinFacts, which tweets arguably not-so-true facts that are equal parts parody and hilarity.

As of press time this Twitter gem only has 19 followers, but we here at CultureMap believe funny deserves a spotlight. From revealing the true plans behind the Chuck E. Cheese's on Ben White Boulevard (a snake farm) to filling us in on Magnolia Cafe's "secret menu" (it's Lucky Charms), take a break and have a belly laugh courtesy of True Austin Facts.
