How To Get Away With Lying
Step 1: Tell a big fat lie.
Step 2: Take it back.
Of course, don’t take it back until searching on the topic has leveled off.
And, your comment in which you back away from the lie, will be farther down the comment stream. So anyone who does search that topic, will see the lie first, and will likely not search further.
They’ll think they’ve already found what they were looking for.
I believe i may have seen examples of this tactic on the monster thread (and I would imagine it could be found throughout Pat ‘n’ trolls’ writings.)
How many can you find?
