Hard to Find Sympathy When You’re Being That Damned Stupid
One of the first rules of a con is this: it’s almost impossible to con an honest man. Almost every con is based on the idea that the mark will do something dumb--and often illegal--to make a lot of money off of a small investment. A man who doesn’t give in to greed, who doesn’t look to skirt laws, and who understands that a deal to good to be true probably isn’t true will almost never find themselves on the short end of something like the purchase of a faux big foot filled with dead animal bits.
There’s a whole lot of stupid in giving a big chunk of change to a couple guys with a spare bigfoot in an icebox--and anyone who didn’t let their greed overtake their good sense would have done a bit more in the way of due dilligence before making such a stupid deal. Apparently, Tom Biscardi is either too dishonest, too stupid, or too greedy to have figured that out.
