World’s Most Easily Disproved Lies, Installment 1

Via the Boston Globe:

Yes, Ralph Lauren despises unauthorized biographies. But no, the designer did not forbid the Museum of Fine Arts from stocking Michael Gross ‘s bio during the museum’s show of his collectible cars. At least that’s what the fashion mogul said when reached at his home in Jamaica. “That question has never, ever come up,” said Lauren, asked if his peeps, as reported in the New York Post and elsewhere, demanded the book be kept off the MFA’s shelves. Lauren did add: “Any unauthorized biography is as good as nothing.”

Ralph, a tip: When establishing credibility, try not denying the existence of the question you’re answering.
