Not bad for just moving to town to pursue your dreams. 22-year-old Elyse Porterfield arrived in Los Angeles in June and yesterday became an internet star overnight.

If you haven't seen it yet (and you should, it's pretty funny), she's Jenny, the HPOA -- that's "hot piece of ass" for you noobs -- who quit her job in 33 photos. It didn't take long before the viral story was called out for being a hoax, but many didn't care -- it was a good laugh, after all.

"Yes, I am Jenny (the dry erase board HPOA) :) Thanks to the creative and amazing duo John and Leo Resig at theCHIVE.com," she tweeted and Facebooked early this morning. Creators John and Leo Resig, who also tricked the world and mainstream media with previous hoaxes, also admitted to it the prank, promising to show everyone that Porterfield is "as smart as she is sexy" as her character (and someone is trying to get her to pose in Playboy on Facebook).

So it's only Wednesday and we've got this and a JetBlue employee quitting and going berserk. What's next?
