The problem with being in a relationship (even if it’s only a long-distance Skype one) with a woman who lies for a living is that, well, eventually you’re bound to find out that she’s been lying to you, too.
That’s the sad position Q*Bert finds himself in, as illustrated in this video from our friends at McKenzies Devils:
Don’t take it too personally, though, Q*Bert: Angie can’t seem to help herself.
Why all the lies?
For example, one might ask why anyone would bother to lie about flying from Lanzarote to Dublin, as Angie appears to have done on Tuesday. On the surface of it, a lie like that makes no sense.
And yet, though this be madness, yet there is method in’t…or at least a kind of low cunning.
Think of it this way: if you were a known fraud artist, wanted by UK police for various bits of skulduggery, including promoting harassment and malicious communications, you might want to slip into the UK unnoticed from time to time.
Let’s say, for example, you wanted to attend a friend’s day in court, but you didn’t really want anyone knowing your plans. Knowing that a certain blog keeps track of your movements, you might think it clever to put up a smoke screen:
“Hey!” you’d yell, waving your arm in the air. “Over here! This is me, coming back from Lanzarote to Dublin! Even though in my videos in Lanzarote I was red as a lobster, my skin has miraculously whitened in the Irish sunshine! Yoo-hoo, over here!”
You’d post a few old videos of yourself from last September when you really were in Lanzarote, rambling on about the Illuminati and all your various stories of Angie derring-d0, and then claim you were returning to Dublin, and post a picture of yourself waving and smiling at the airport.
And while you had everyone distracted by your clever ruse, you might just sneak into the UK by ferry, where you might not even have to show a passport. Quick train to London, tube to Belinda’s lair, bing-bang-boom, and Bob’s yer uncle!
Now, we’re not saying that was Angela’s game—but we’ll be keeping an eye open for her in court this morning.
Just in case.
