    wait now...

    so clearly i'm a gullible airhead. but would someone kindly enlighten me? haha.

    were the gorilla shoes just a lie? or does the person actually own a pair of gorilla hide shoes and the whole antarctic thing was a rouse?

    *mildy embarassed*

    No, it's true. And by true I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the truth? The answer - is no.

    This was a joke (or was it?) that started on Ask Andy, found its way to Film Noir Buff, and has now made its way here. I can only assume London Lounge is next.

    I've never been quite sure whether our friend from Australia "gets it."

    Those familiar with Shooman will note from that thread that he is full of lies.

    Wow, I really had no idea that he was that odd. It's this tone of- God, I don't even know how to describe it, except to say that every time I read "shoos" I get the creeping horrors.

    The thing I liked best about Shooman is that he was so versatile. In one post he'd talk about buying $4K bespoke shoes, then in the next he'd talk about buying a lot of coke and going to see a death metal show.

    SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS.

    I think the most awkward part of this is the fact that Marc has a picture of Kelly Clarkson in his sig.

    So do you think this is a lie:
    Hahahaha, I wish he would have posted about Ugg boots when he was on SF.

    Monkey fur coats were very popular during the '30s, and '50s. It looks like human hair.
    The interregnum being due to the the guvmint's commandeering of all available monkey fur during the 40's for the war effort?
