I call charades on this nonsense. There is a man, apparently in Australia (the spell checkers' Austria), whom enjoys writing things on a web site! In fact, he is probably not the only one.
He is, however, the only one claiming to have done things that he has not in fact done. Things in the name of humor, no less. On its face that is OK with me. Certainly it would be called ‘fiction' by many. But in this case it is rendered completely devoid of humor by its fallacy.
You are shocked, and surely would ask unto me now, "But Scott, who is the perpetrator of this trick, this ruse of the day
It is this guy:
A man obviously of Australian living.
He runs a web site
that is arguably arranged in a more artsy-fartsy manner than mine. It is far less humorous, however.
I have "linked" to it only so that you may see for yourself how seriously he takes his artistic vision.
Now to the crux of the problem! On his this page
, he seems to claim that he'd had conversations with various men of varying body types, convincing one and all to write sentences on their bellies! He does this in the guise of a woman!
Very humorous, no?
No. Because it's all a pack of lies, lit by a lighter of deceit and smoked by Satan himself. How did I deduce this? Using my powers of deduction!
Deductive powers heretofore unseen on the internet! For you see, with the exception of the first image that he presents, all of the handwriting (stomach-writing?) is the same from one image to the next!
Particularly, examine the "E"s.
Now, I'm no CSI-douchebag, though I could presently go to Home Depot and obtain a blue and a green light, thenst using those lights on a scene which I would shoot from a camera that is inside an object wherein one would rarely expect to find a camera. I can observe that the "E"s were penned by the same hand. Also, they were obviously just "Photoshopped" onto the bellies of the men. You can just tell, you have an eye for this.
My wager as to what went through Mister Thorne's head:
"I am now looking upon Google Images at pictures of fit young men (as I am wont to do!), and I see that this man has an apparent communiqué on his abdomen!"
"He wants to be 'inside' of 'd.t'. Hmmmm. Perhaps this is my chance for comedy
"I am now 'Photoshopping' words onto other mens' stomachs that I have located within Google Images."
"I am now making this page
available on the American-invented internet such that people can mock it."
I would find all of this to be far less scandalous, were this very David Thorne not to have just recently been praised for attempting to settle an account with a crap spider drawing
. Not only was he praised by some, but his ruse was reported as true by news agencies and such. (Example

It is interesting that this alleged "Jane Gilles" writes in the modified style of David Thorne.
It is even more concerning to me that this lady would put up with such nonsense whilst a man owed her $233.95.
I accuse David Thorne of having invented all communication with other parties on his web-site, even those that would deign to call him a "retard". Surely he knows that conflict is key to any dramatic comedy! He would be a fool not to have heard this on commercials for TNT, three years ago.
Also, whereas he may invent stories about bees
and such crap, I would only write factual stories about bees
. Should it make for less interesting reading, then so be* it.
*Pun not intended. I only saw that this could be construed as a pun after having typed it. I would have re-phrased, but I don't care enough, and would rather spend this time typing this very disclaimer.
