I hate wtfacts with all of my heart and soul.

This was an unconfirmed story, with no additional evidence ever found for it other than it's initial report. There's no ******* way that the allies would waste the slightest resource on a prank.

I cannot stand how this site spews out every story it has ever heard and calls it fact.

... yeah I guess... but it was still funny; then again, those pilots are special types of people, they might just do this **** on their own accord - most of them are (were) army Captains and Majors...

They would not be allowed to waste military resources on stupid pranks.
In time of war a war machine out-values a soldier.

This is the last paragraph of the source that they site.
>It does seem odd that it's so hard to find accounts from Allied airmen who dropped wooden bombs, as opposed to accounts of Allied airmen who dropped wooden bombs. This, along with the wide variation in details from story to story, suggests to me that most of the wooden bombs were urban legends, rumours or just jokes. But given the evidence Courouble and his colleagues have come up with, I think wooden bombs were really dropped, sometimes, rarely. Whether reality inspired rumours or rumours inspired reality may not be possible to determine now.

Several of which I've proven wrong with basic math skills.

It took me three additional seconds of searching to find out that there's no historical evidence for this.
