Elyse Porterfield says Jenny DryErase quitting was a fake

Jenny DryErase and Slater, the Jeblue flight attendant are things many employees have looked towards when it comes to taking care of business with jobs. On Wednesday morning, TheChive.com revealed the whole Jenny DryErase story was a hoax, with actress Elyse Porterfield playing the part of Jenny.

Elyse Porterfield gets hired on by TheChive.com to be a part of a joke

TheChive.com is a humor website run by a team of two brothers. First the “Jenny DryErase” joke was thought up and then done by the boys who hired Elyse Porterfield to play the part. Elyse Porterfield moved to Los Angeles from Colorado and is an actress. She is a fairly cute girl meaning the new Facebook group suggesting “Jenny DryErase” pose for Playboy has a ton of followers already.

Humorous hoaxes in history

The humorous “Jenny DryErase” joke isn’t really the first joke to be based upon off a “real” story that happened. Generally these stories are picked up easily after being posted online. An additional example would be the hoax claiming that Donald Trump left an $82 tip at a restaurant. It can also be seen on TheChive.com’s previous hoax, the “Teen Texting Disaster.”. Either way, it is a formula that has been used many times: take something seemingly real, mix it with something believable but slightly out there and add in a famous figure or attractive woman.

Elyse Porterfield fielding job offers

TheChive gets a lot of advertising to their website from “humor hoaxes” such as this. Elyse Porterfield is working in Los Angeles although she was increasing in Colorado. She gets hired as an Angelina Jolie look-alike sometimes. Her official Facebook page has grown to more than 3,000 “likes,” and seems like she may get even more exposure from this hoax. This job benefits Elyse probably more than it benefits TheChive.com showing that “Jenny DryErase” really was worth the time
