Kind of with Shadowfart69 on this one.

The story says a man scratched out the Chuck E. Cheese logo of his tokens and drew in the bitcoin logo before selling the coins on the street. The punishment for this fictional crime was a five-year prison sentence.

Pablo Reyes, who owns Huzlers, told BuzzFeed News the post was inspired by the recent surge in interest about bitcoin. "And everyone loves Chuck E. Cheese 🙌,," he added.

Reyes said the article is not meant to be taken seriously. "We have a large following on social media so most of our articles spread with people who know it's fabricated and just wanna laugh [or] maybe trick a coworker, but it's all in the name of entertainment," he said.
