This is a question Bullshit and Bullshitters

We've had questions about lies and liars in the past, but this time we're asking about the sort of fantasist who constantly claims they've got a helicopter in the garden or was "second onto the balcony at the Iranian Embassy siege". Tell us about the cobblers you've been told, or the complete lies you've come out with.

Thanks to dozer for the suggestion

A guy
I vaguely knew at University was one of those Walter from Big Lebowski style bullshitters - he could get you anything. A fragment of the true cross? No problem, I'll call my uncle in the Vatican. A bunch of supermodels and a honda accord for a party? Yeah not a problem, I'll call my mate the millionaire. All relatively standard in the bovine faecal department.

On weekend a bunch of us were invited to a party - a relatively low key affair as it turned out - and found that Mr. Bullshit was there too. Quite late into the evening a group of people were discussing the possibilities of buying massive drugs and Mr. Bullshit piped up that he was, like, friends with these well hard gangsters from when they'd hung out in this, like, well rough estate together, who'd give him a good deal on certain powders. He volunteered to go meet his 'gangster friends' and obtain said powders. A quick whip round is given by those in on it, and he toddles off with a wodge of money not far short of £200.

Quite a large amount of time passes, and those who've chipped in are starting to get a bit antsy when, eventually, Mr. Bullshit comes back in, boasting about how his gangster mates had seen him right et.c. et.c. and he had the item they all wanted.

Smugly, to the frankly disbelieving looks of about half the people there, he opened his cupped hands to reveal two persil washing tablets in a small net bag. They weren't even crushed up.

it become apparent that he was a massive bull shitter before you and your mates gave him £200, or after?

After presumably. Who would give £200 to a proven bullshit merchant?

got the money off a load of people who only just met him, or hadn't figured out he was a bullshit merchant. Anyone with prior experience of him stayed well away.

The fallout was quite amusing to watch.

Did he still have the money?

Did he get a sound thrashing?

Careful now, we could end up with a bullshit black hole here

"They weren't even crushed up."
Unlike him shortly afterwards, I imagine.

We once bought some washing powder by accident in Amsterdam.

A mate was so hopeful that there might at least something in there that he did the lot.

Washing powder = excessive nose bleeds.
