WikiLeaks is telling lies about me!

2011-09-06 13:13
Yes! Don’t believe a word WikiLeaks is saying about me!

It’s all a bunch of rotten, malicious fabrications! I NEVER did any of those things they said I did! I’m appalled at the nerve of these people. Let that Assange dude rot in jail, I say! Lock him up in a cell with Polanski and Manson and all those other terrible criminals!

I categorically deny that, on the morning of the 8th of August, 2007, I kicked my dog. And even if I did, how would they know anyway! What’s it got to do with them?

And at no stage, let me reiterate that, at NO STAGE WHATSOEVER did I write to that Mulder guy to apply for a job in the Vryheidsfront Plus Party. Why would I do that? Even if money is tough? I’d rather go work for the Post Office or Eskom. It’s all a pack of lies.

Blame it on Valiant

As for that story about me and the Formula One hotel receptionist in Beaufort West, well, I won’t even comment on that! Everyone knows what sort of people are employed at those cheap hotels! And, anyway, that last round of drinks was Valiant Swart’s idea! Really, the levels some people can stoop to!

Neither is it true, as WikiLeaks claim, that I stole the tune for Lente in die Boland! I know it sounds a little bit like Lily the Pink, especially the opening line, but how many songs start with those exact same chords? Have you paged through the FAK-sangbundel lately? All those songs have nothing but the same three chords (though not always in the same key, but it’s the same general idea). I did NOT steal any ideas from whoever wrote Lily the Pink! If I stole any ideas, it’s from the FAK, and those guys are all dead by now anyway, so there’s no copyright on their material!

Maybe this Media Tribunal thing is a good idea after all. I mean, I used to be all for freedom of the press and all that sort of nonsense, but this time, it’s gone too far.

‘Scuse me? What’s this about a Tassenberg tender in 1996...?
