They used to tank cod from Alaska all the way to China. They'd keep them in vats in the ship. By the time the codfish reached China, the flesh was mush and tasteless. So this guy came up with the idea that if you put these cods in these big vats, put some catfish in with them and the catfish will keep the cod agile. And there are those people who are catfish in life. And they keep you on your toes. They keep you guessing, they keep you thinking, they keep you fresh. And I thank god for the catfish because we would be droll, boring and dull if we didn't have somebody nipping at our fin.
I'm starting to believe he's just an idiot that embellished on something he was duped on.
Either way, he's a huge *** hole.
And the people who duped him have to be laughing their ***** off right now.
LOL @ people saying because Manti was Mormon he couldn't have premarital affairs.
I grew up Catholic and was not supposed to have premarital affairs... I still did
He's a STAR football player for Notre Dame
He's been banging Catholic girls for awhile now
I have never seen the documentary Catfish but I just wikipedia'd the movie and much to my surprise it said girl the guy was talking to apparently said she was from Gladstone, MI, which is this tiny tiny tiny town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Coincidentally that is where I grew up, I found it odd because it is only a town of roughly 4800(?) people.
The closest thing Gladstone has made to a movie was Escanaba in da Moonlight a cult hunting movies with Jeff Daniels based off a town 7 miles south of Gladstone (Population ~15k).
THE FUTURE IS HERE
I fully believe Te'o thought she was a real person at this point.
I believe he embelished his stories because it made him look good and no one wants to admit they met someone online, and hell they even had a backstory which is what people do if they meet people online.
I know friends that have done this, and they did it on HIMYM one time as well.
