Turns out that Jim McMenamin really doesn’t like having his Hoaxtead fantasies brought to light. In fact, he seemed downright surly when we pointed out that the ‘riot police’ who came to arrest Ella last February…weren’t.
Here’s his initial response:
Yes, he really claims he’s ‘too clever to lie’. You heard it here first.
We’re honestly not sure what to make of that winky-drooly emoji; we’re hoping it doesn’t mean what we think it means. And if it does, should someone notify Helen?
In any case, when confronted with his ‘cops in riot gear’ fabrication, Jim tries to worm his way out: “It SoundsLike they’re in RiotGear”, he protests.
El Coyote points out that pictures showing the real situation have been available on YouTube for the better part of a year. However, he’s impressed with Jim’s ability to somehow ‘hear’ that the police were in riot gear.
Jim’s response? Well, we’ll let you decide:
Perhaps realising that his strangely disconnected response won’t quite do, Jim comes back with more self-justifying back-pedalling:
“…& wouldn’t surprise me if pic was taken after they fled”. Ah, so this is all just speculation, then. Thanks for clearing that up.
Keep digging, Jim old man. Your efforts to squirm out of this one are providing entertainment for hundreds of readers.
