The Clapper Tell ... The Boy Can't Lie Good

With the flourishing of Texas Hold Em Poker, and the propagation of tournaments being televised, we've all had the chance to learn a bit about the game, the strategy and the tactics.  We all know, now, about the importance of learning the "tell" of each player at the table.

The "tell" is that involuntary action or posturing -- body language -- that indicates the state of mind of the player.

I watched Director Clapper's testimony before the Senate.

For your convenience, I have circled the gesticulation associated with the only known LIE told by Clapper on that occasion.

So, if you find yourself in a conversation with Director Clapper, and he begins furiously scratching his head, check for mosquitoes, or watch out for the flying lies!
