That image is not a hoax. A billboard has cropped up near the town of Wyoming, Minnesota, bearing the smiling mug of George W. Bush and the phrase, “Miss Me Yet?” When the image first surfaced, some blogs dismissed it as a hoax, but Bob Collins of Minnesota Public Radio insists he’s seen it with his own eyes.

Collins has no idea who erected the mysterious sign—there’s no ownership plaque, and no one he’s asked knows. “Wish I could take credit for it,” says Wyoming’s mayor. “Calls every day asking if it was me.” Adds a member of an anti-Democrat group: "The person who I thought did not put up the billboard. He has been contacted about keeping it up if the current owner takes it down."
