Was it really only last February that Rupert Wilson Quaintance III was Angela Fag-Ash Disney’s Pet of the Month?
Theirs was a whirlwind romance, full of tempestuous ups and downs, as Angie tried to seduce the twitchy younger man with her imaginary accomplishments, while he demanded that she serve him his peas and carrots separate from one another, not touching, dammit!
Together, they hatched a cunning plan to bring Rupert to London, where he would cleverly disguise himself by hanging about in pubs complaining about British food and porn, the better to entrap unwitting Hampstead residents and get them to ‘squeal’. This, they felt sure, would break the so-called ‘cult’ wide open. Uh-huh.
To raise money for this endeavour, Angela set up a GoFundMe campaign in Rupert’s name. However, to the pair’s utter shock and dismay, the cash did not start pouring in as planned. So Angie tried to salt the pot with a donation of €1,000…which has been sitting there ever since, trying not to look conspicuous.
Meanwhile, though, Angie found herself a new toy boy in the person of young Jake Clarke. He’s younger, even dimmer, more gullible, and doesn’t make ridiculous demands about peas and carrots. Plus, he already lives in London, where he can be ordered about on Angie’s whim.
Really, there’s no comparison.
Still, it came as a bit of a surprise yesterday when one of our commenters noted that Angie seems to have removed all of Q*Bert’s videos from her YouTube channel. We checked, and by gum, it’s true! All gone.
And even stranger, Q*Bert’s Hoaxtead video from last year has disappeared from his YouTube channel as well.
Is this like where the girlfriend takes back her record collection, and the boyfriend retaliates by flouncing off with his favourite pillow and blanket, plus exactly half the coffee mugs?
Now, though, we wonder: who will get custody of the GoFundMe account?
It’s listed in Q*Bert’s name, so technically he could empty it at any time. In fact, he might already have done so. He’d be well within his rights.
Wouldn’t it be tragic if Angie were to find that the money she’d planted in the account in an attempt to draw more donations wound up in Q*Bert’s pocket?
How ironic if the scammer were to find herself well and truly scammed.
Edited to add:
Our friends at McKenzies Devils have very kindly gathered up all the Angie/Q*Bert videos in one convenient place, in case you’d like to subject yourself to them again. Many thanks, MDs!
