This is a question Conned

swiftyisNOTevil writes, "I have recently become obsessed with the BBC Three show 'The Real Hustle' - personally, I think of it as a 'How To' show for aspiring con artists."

Have you carried out a successful con? Perhaps you hustled a few quid off a stranger, or defrauded a multi-national company. Or have you been taken for the wide-eyed, naive rube that you are?

Once, after 40 pints I was a little bit tipsy, so I walked into the world bank and who should I see but George Bush himself. I told him he owed me $40,000 and he paid up on the spot.

I then gave the money to an African childrens home, as I didn't have time to spend it all with all the birds hanging off my cock.

That's the sort of person I am.

Yours forever

sweet zombie jesus, who gives a shit if he makes stuff up? (I don't believe he does)

at least he's funny and articulate, which is more than can be said of most people

Even if he does make stuff up, he does a fucking better job of it than some people on these pages.

(You know who I'm talking about '50 jobs' LJ)

Legless doesn't need us to fight his battles for him...he might even be insulted...and he hasn't done me any favours, but there comes a time when I just get fucked off with people trying it on because they can't think of anything original or entertaining of their own.

Wonder why Legless' stories are ALWAYS on the first page?
It's because they're funny AND relevant. Whether they're true or not.

Almost exactly unlike this.

Come on
if it's not true, it's not relevant.

The title of the question is normally "have you", not "have you dreamt".

A bullshit merchant is simply that and can never be deemed as relvant.

Oh dear...
I can vouch that most of what Legless posts is based on personal experience, or the experiences of people he knows.

So what if he embellishes things a bit? It's all done for comic effect. If you don't like his stuff, then don't read it. Quite simple really...

See now.
I have no objection to bullshit, AS LONG.

As it is amusing, articulate bullshit.

Which Legless' posts generally are.

bullshit is bullshit is bullshit is bullshit

And my Dad's bigger than your Dad and I'm taking my ball home. Ner ner ner ner ner. Etc.

Like I said, if you don't like his writing, don't read it. Many of the world's best comedians have plied their trade based on life experience with appropriate embellishments. It all boils down to personal taste.

I know Legless, and can vouch for him being one of the most genuine, shitless and solid people you could ever meet.
