I remember the news story - they were his own.

And he was a night shift security guard, so literally nothing he did at work mattered anyway.

Oh yeah! They were calling him "Paul Flart" online and the name stuck. Apparently he's a modern-day Le Pétomane now.

He, no joke, is trying to turn it into a career including tours and a book.

That story has shown up for me a few times, and despite not being a big Beatles fan I heard a lot of interviews from McCartney from the same 'press tour' I guess as the one where that story came out and the rest were all like "this is how much John and I love our sons and how much I'm inspired by both", "I hate when people say the Yoko broke up the band, because though she did shift John's focus it was real love, not anything malicious like people think", "one time we masturbated in a room together".

Also of all the obvious signs in that tweet, it's clearly a fake because Liam can't even say Noel's name without spitting blood and booze.

I've seen it in several places over several days and figured that if it was fake (it's not actually much weirder than some of the other stories from that era...) comments to that effect would be showing up by now.

Not saying you're wrong. It could just be a particularly strong case of "I want to believe".

For guys (you would assume) had been trained by Russian intelligence services, they sure are complete and utter dogshit at basic lying 101.

EDIT: Unless this is some 4D chess stuff where we're continuing the theme of "Russia wants everyone to know they did this, while strenuously denying they did it". I dunno. Putin's crafty as fuck, but I don't know that I want to give him THAT much credit.

I have no idea which thread this could in... there's got to be a half-dozen candidates.

In the process of using a technicality to dismiss charges against a murderous nazi, judge accidentally makes bioterrorism legal.
