Yeah, from my perspective he never lied about being a con artist.. and like a true con artist, what we thought was the con wasn't the true con. In the end he gets this movie made about him and we're all going "lol but it's fake"... well... yeah? That just proves he's good at being a con artist!

Basically if there was a movie based on this, the sequel is actually a reboot which really highlights the dangers of Orwellian revisionism

It reminds me of the classic joke:

Did you know that elephants are extremely good at hiding in trees?

>!Well, have you ever seen an elephant hiding in a tree? No? Now you know why!<

Why do elephants have wrinkled knees? From jumping out of trees.

What is the loudest sound in the savanna?

Respectfully stolen from the dad joke YouTube vids?

Pretty sure the joke is much older than YouTube. My father shared with me before YouTube was a thing. We're German, so the joke is probably really fucking old if people across the globe know about it

My dad’s favorite joke: Why do ducks have flat feet? To stamp out Forrest fires.

Why do elephants have flat feet? To stamp out burning ducks.

And then a few years later he will claim it’s actually all true and you’ve been conned into thinking it was all lies
