Remember Pinocchio?

The Little Boy whose nose would grow and grow...

I feel it almost my duty to inform this new Trump Administration of the cautionary tale of our beloved Pinocchio. You must remember him, the wooden puppet creation of dear old Geppetto.

Geppetto loved Pinocchio and Pinocchio loved to tell lies. Little Pinocchio wasn't even clever enough to try and disguise them as 'alternate facts' or even as 'misleading words'.

So with each falsehood he spoke his little nose would begin to grow. And grow, and GROW.

It behooves us whilst watching the news on television to keep an eye on, not the prize, but the noses.
