Hoax bid

A bid for a convention, like a Worldcon, which is done for the fun of it (sometimes as an excuse to throw bid parties) and with no intention of winning, such as the first, NWT in '53, or Highmore in '76.

A hoax bid is different from a joke bid: The people running a hoax bid never expected to win.
