There’s a certain public figure who’s got my goad for the last, oh I don’t know, several years. I won’t say their name because first of all I’m tired of it and second of all I’d probably mess up the algorithm or something.
You can easily guess who I’m talking about or swap in your own annoyance of choice. But the reason I bring this up is that one of the things that has returned to my head about this person over and over again is that not only are they a liar, they’re not even a good liar.
It’s one thing to watch someone be taken in by a silver-tongued deceiver. It’s another thing to just watch a dummy say clearly untrue stuff as clumsily as possible and get away with it. Which is what some internet heroes were trying to put a stop to in these wonderful examples of liars getting caught via Reddit.
