I amused myself today by coming up with some statements that would show someone to be not only a liar but completely stupid. They are entirely made up by me, of course, so no real individual is made to look foolish. What do you think and can you add anything?

I've read the complete works of Socrates

I've read Quo Vadis in the original Latin

My favourite French composer is Chopin

I have a signed copy of A Brief History of Time

All good, but isn't that a real one, Toby?

Oh yeah, sorry. When I read your initial post I immediately thought of him.

I particularly enjoyed my Dodo burger for lunch.

(sorry, the best I can do right now)

That would be me.

Oh yes, he's very good. But I like music from Spanish composers as well. Like the opera Carmen.

The best movies are the old Hollywood ones by great American film makers like Chaplin, Curtiz, Hitchchock...

I knew it! I just knew that sooner or later a statement would come along that shows me up for the ignoramus I am. I could so easily take that one at your word. Could you enlighten this poor fool?

You're talking to me, I think? If you are:
The ivory-billed woodpecker is a rare bird (if it still exists in the US at all; that's still up for debate) that hasn't really been seen by anyone in years although some ornithologists have apparently documented its call. At one time it was declared extinct. It just doesn't eat at suet feeders.
