The Guardian was sued for libel by the creator John Ryan over just such a story. Ooops!

Funnily enough, no, I didn't. I knew ages ago it was an urban legend and actually read the Guardian on the day when it published that piece. I remember thinking at the same "ooo, there'll be trouble". A classic case of Schadenfreude.
