OK, Richard. I'll vouch for you.

For two Bouchercons in a row, master storytellers Moore and Lansdale squared off in hotel rooms to see who could tell the wildest, funniest, tallest tale. These are guys who are gifted with purest form of the storytelling gene. Trust me. There was one woman in the room whom I thought was literally going to die of laughter before it was over. Richard's tales of his various uncles are hard to equal, but Lansdale was up to the task with his imitation of a very angry pig that, for reasons too complex to go into here, was chasing him and a friend. And then there was that woodpecker. At any rate, I'd declare the contests a draw both times. It was a rare privilege to be there and hear two real liars, er, storytellers give it their all.
