"What made it interesting, besides his "creative wordplay," & BS is that he stumbles upon aspects of truth, unbeknown to him. "

I rather thought that this would be the type of response I'd get. Even when the point of the whole 'hoax' is that people hear what they want to hear, and refuse to 'see' the internal flaws and messy logic, no one ever says, "Gee..I sure was careless there.."

reminds me of my favorite Peanuts cartoon:

Charlie Brown is walking along when he comes to Lucy, kneeling and looking at something on the sidewalk..."What are you doing , Lucy?"

"Charlie Brown--see this big black bug? Do you know why it's so much bigger than the others? Because it's the QUEEN!" Charlie gets down and peers closely...

"Lucy, that's not a bug...that's a black jelly bean!"

Lucy gives him this LOOK and bends to scrutinize the bug again..."Why, so it is!...I wonder how a Jelly bean ever got to be queen!"

There's no way to make the point when your 'victim' just redefines the rules and explains that anything you say just proves his point.
