Re: Deadspin: Manti Te’o’s Dead Girlfriend is a hoax
There was an episode of Catfish, The Mhissy Episode, that featured a 3 year prank. So there is precedent for these type of shenanigans. The length that people will go for quality lulz is infinite.
I don't buy it though.
I still prefer to believe that Manti was in on it, and purposely used the story to create a narrative for his Heisman campaign. I prefer to believe that he is a diabolical mastermind, than an idiot of the lowest order.
