A friend from Germany sent me this link :

Echeng spoofed

My german is rusted so I can understand only the first bit about the postcards from vacations then something about pictures on Echeng.com. Has Eric gone Deutsche to be closer to the Nurburgring? Will snopes write about it? Stay tuned!

There is a rough translation on eric's blog. Basically they're making fun of some german politicians. I can speak german, but even then it's not that funny. How they ever got there using Eric's images is completely unclear. They're making it seem like the politician sent some of his images to echeng.com, ie he's a shark..

If these are on the web it'll be hard to do something about it, if it's even illegal..
