"PLES RING IF AN RNSER IS REQIRD."

It's definitely intriguing, but I don't think it's true.
The names of the organizations he references made me suspicious to begin with.
It seems very tongue-in-cheek how he wrote it, especially considering the editor's note at the end.

ED NOTE: It has recently come to my attention that some readers of this blog have questioned my research methods and the veracity of my findings. A quick Google search of "Dr. Ellison Burke" and the "Global Institute for Cross-Cultural Studies," they claim, reveals not a single link. Frankly, I am baffled by their assertions and have assigned five of my brightest research assistants to get to the bottom of this immediately. In the meantime, you may want to contemplate the semi-ancient words of modern day social scientists, Simon and Garfunkel:
The Wikipedia article makes no reference to any possible history other than having origin in 20th-century America. In fact, the talk page for the article makes no reference to this, nor does the talk page's archive. It seems like something somebody just made up to sound witty.
