CALL MY BLUFF


The latest craze to sweep blogland is ten factos about yourself one of which is a lie and the rest of the universe has to guess the falsehood. I've enjoyed this with a few others so will have a go myself...



1) I have a four inch scar on my left arm


2) I never drink Carling Black label


3) I was athletics sports person of the year at school, house Rugby captain and on the school rugby team, had trials for the county at soccer did well over 2,000 keepy-ups for 45 mins and was offered a trial at Luton Town FC by their goalkeepers dad.


4) I drove from near London to Blackpool via Manchester, just to say hello to Miss EEjit, (before we were married) and at 2am played football on a moonlit Blackpool beach for 10 mins and drove home and went straight to work.


5) I ran naked across a Corfu beach


6) I have been attacked by skinheads, assaulted with a half-brick to the head , dazed by an uncooked 3lb ham and nearly branded by a domestic iron.


7) My accent is truly awful. A weird mix of London /Tipp/Offaly /Dublin /Manchester


8) I applied to be a gravedigger and failed to get an interview.


9) I nearly died in a motorbike accident


10) My real age is 48

Corfu.

The Weaver of Grass said...

I think you are 21 - so the last one is wrong.
Thanks by the way for saying you liked my handwriting. Everyone complains they can't read it, so I shall now have it writ large that TFE THINKS MY HANDWRITING IS GOOD

Rachel Fox said...

3 seems to obvious. But I still think it's the one...unless you're being tricky and have changed the rules so it's 9 lies and one truth!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Thanks Dominic, all will be revealedlater.Probably.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Bless you Sparkey! You got a cold?

Niamh B said...

I think Rachel is right, think you've put up 9 lies, in which case no. 4 is the true one. If I had to guess one lie - I would say no 2.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Ah Weaver, 21, how kind, if only! I was once.But as for your answer, is Weaver right, or is Weaver wrong? Tune in again to find out!

Totalfeckineejit said...

I'm stcking to the rules Rachel.Just this once!

the watercats said...

athletics!.. ahahahahahahahaha.. yah!, riiight!....

by the way, long, long way is a fantastic book! Finally have it back off me dad :-)

Nice poem in the ole shop too, what a quality, special piece of printing that little magazine is! makes me feel like a genius just looking at it :-)

Totalfeckineejit said...

Well Mrs Niamh, only one is a lie, but which one??

Totalfeckineejit said...

Delighted, Uiscekateens, that you are liking the book and yes, isn't The SHOp briliant? Really pleased you have a subscription!

Niamh B said...

ok ok athletics it is

KING OF THE CAMELS said...

I HOPE IT'S 5 !!!!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Athletics you say ,Niamh? Mmmm.

Totalfeckineejit said...

You and the entire population of Corfu, Kamel King!

alcoholinky said...

It's all lies! LOL

Heather said...

I'll go for 3 - but then it could be 2 or even one of the others!! I liked Weaver's handwriting too, but forgot to tell her.

Totalfeckineejit said...

alcoholinky, LOL, lies!?That's my life were talking about :)

Totalfeckineejit said...

3 or 2 ok Heather,so I'm not the sporty type hey/ People? Weaver has the best handwrito for sure!

Jeanne Iris said...

# 8

I cannot believe that anyone in his/her right mind would not grant you an interview to be a gravedigger.

Liz said...

Might go for 3 too, it's a biggie...must admit to liking the goalkeeper's dad intervention though...made me think 'credible'...4 reminds me of the Milk Tray ad...definitely believable...(; ))...6 is a whopper of a one...6 it is ...'ouch' and 'ouch ' (just couldn't be true)!

(word verification: dinnae nou... : )!)

Totalfeckineejit said...

Well Liz,is it all because the Lady EEjit loves milk tray?
I cannae believe the WV wuz 'dinnae nou'! That really is the best one yet, and there's been a few gooduns!

Totalfeckineejit said...

I know Jeanne, it has to believe.Is that because it's a lie? Or because I jus wasn't gravedigger material?

Jeanne Iris said...

I'm only writing this because the wv was too good to pass by.

fechear: say what?

Whilst I'm here, I'll take another guess: #7...Your accent is definitely NOT awful.

willow said...

Ah, you never applied to be a gravedigger. I don't believe it for a minute. All the others, yup, I believe.

Titus said...

I have never met anyone that would drink Carling Black Label, but I just have a gut feeling that you do not walk the usual lines. So I'm having number 2 because no one else has.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Good reasoning behind that one Titus, but is it correct? Hmmm!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Willow 's going for the gravedigger one too but for different reasons.Interesting!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Jeanne is back with a compliment for my accent, but is she right? The WV pixie is in fine form tonite I have to say 'Fechear' is my new all time favourite-so far!

Domestic Oub said...

No. 10 is the lie. You are in fact a 12 year old girl with pigtails.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Ha, ha ! D'Oub. Well I'm baldy,slightly beardy, 5 feet 10 and 14 1/2 stone, so I hope not, for her sake!

Domestic Oub said...

I'm changing my guess... you have a pick of John Peel on your title, you could be the vintage you suggest... hmmm.. I'll go with no.3. Did you weight the ham after it smacked you? hmm...

Jeanne Iris said...

What does 14 1/2 stone mean?

Elisabeth said...

I do not know you at all. I'm new to this blog, but something tells me to go for either 1, or 6.

Can I have two tries? For preference I'll go for 1.

I thought as I read through these statements, that if it were me, I'd most likely put the lie first to put people off the scent.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Hello Elisabeth and welcome.Good reasoning there, i like yer style, but is it the right answer,time will tell.

Totalfeckineejit said...

More truly excellent reasoning /deduction from D'oub, but is it a mistake to change your mind , or not?

Uiscebot said...

Eleven, deffo

John Hayes said...

#2

Uiscebot said...

Eleven. It's definitely Eleven. And if not then it's 3

beedlemama said...

Not sure whether to thank you or spank you for this craze, although it has cheered me up mightily! I guess no 10

Totalfeckineejit said...

Succinct and to the point ,John, but is it true or is that the lie!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Eleven is a lie Uisce,you are right, but I didn't include it, so 3 it is.But is it?

Totalfeckineejit said...

Either will do for me Beedler! Glad you enjoyo it.But is no 10 correcto?

Totalfeckineejit said...

Jeanne,in this case 14 1/2 stone means ... fat little fecker!

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

I knew a guy who drank Carling Black Label while smoking Tiparillos - the dovetailing of two of the most offensive assaults on the tastebuds ... ever.

Here's my guess, in order of probability:

8, 2, 3, 7, 4, 9, 6, 1, 5, 10

Totalfeckineejit said...

If the smoky thing is the smoking equivalent of drinking Carling then that truly is the epitome of hell Issa.And by virtue of giving every possible answer you are indeed correct! Well done!

Argent said...

It's the age one - sure you don't look a day over 47 and a half!

Totalfeckineejit said...

Argent you is CORRECT. Go you!

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Well, looking at the comment by Argent, looks like it's the age one! I'm a bit late - however I enjoyed the game and the points all sound so far-fetched that they must be true! I did think either the Carling Black label or the age one because they're both fairly mundane!

However, I'm sure it's only you that thinks your accent is awful - it's probably nexcellent!

Poetikat said...

Oh my GAWD! How did I miss all this? Sorry, Peadar. I've been busy chasing a fur ball around my mom's apartment with a spray gun.

I think it's number 2 because I believe you'll drink ANYTHING!!!

Kat

Poetikat said...

If indeed Argent is correct, then it is quite the coincidence that her comment is #48!!!
