From early childhood Stephen learnt the art of telling fibs. At first, they were just innocent little ones that were easily proven false, like "i didn't do it" when everyone saw him tie the weights to the poor fleas feet. Then they became harder to challenge, such as the time he explained that a garackle-fargen from Xink had eaten his Geography Homework. This is quite easy to understand, after all garackle-fargens are very partial to dry subjects, particularly with a smattering of continents. Finally, he went on to the University of WhoppingLies & managed to achieve a 2:1 in Pre-Watershed Falsification.
Having displayed a natural talent in all things fabricated, Stephen went into teaching & spent 18 years attempting to instruct knukle-grazers in the art of standardised paper filling in a London building. One day he got hit by a bad case of the zoogles & decided he needed a change. So now he spends his time professionally telling GREAT BIG FIBS as well as instructing others in the art.
