Sniffing out a pathological liar

How many of these things remind you of McPalin?

1. Exaggerates things that are ridiculous.

2. One-upping. Whatever you do, this person can do it better.

3. They "construct" a reality around themselves.

4. Because these people don't value honesty, a lot of times they will not value loyalty. So watch what you tell them.

5. They may be somewhat of a hypochondriac.

6. Obviously, they will contradict what they say. This will become very clear over time. They usually aren't smart enough to keep track of so many lies (who would be?).
Obviously, not McSarah. Oh, and one more thing:
"They lie about even the smallest things."
Like, ohidunno, teleprompters?

Hi I'm posting here to thank you for your positive comments about the list of alternate "Talk Like" Days that was posted in a comment on the Pharyngula open thread this morning. Unfortunately, the poster plagiarized it from my website without attribution. The original is available here: http://suburbanpanic.com/2008/09/19/i-thought-of-some-more/

Thanks again.
