If you live in Boise, Idaho

You are intimately familiar with the Bogus Basin Ski Area

If someone is producing counterfeit ski passes, and they are for the Bogus Basin Ski area, what is a hapless editor supposed to call them

Fake Bogus Ski Pass
Counterfeit Bogus Ski Pass
Unauthorized Bogus Ski Pass

Maybe the last one, but it doesn't really say what is happening

Just a funny name left over from gold mining in Idaho. Gold miners found lots of fool's gold, but no real gold in that area, which is why they called it the Bogus Basin.
