Sure he's made out of wood and his best friend is a cricket. But even Pinocchio doesn't deserve to have his name drawn through the mud, all because of IRuby's nanny problems.
In explosive new testimony today, another character, Pinocchio was brought out of the, err, woodwork. Agatha Mason, who represents the non-profit company Intercede, confirmed that she did in fact talk with IRuby about the return of a passport, and had the phone records as proof. When it was brought to Ms. Mason's attention that Dhalla denied that phone calll took place, the committee room erupted into chaos when she stated "“I don’t care. It’s her word and she has a conscience. These are one of the occasions when I wish the children’s story of Pinocchio is true.”
Reached at the home of his longtime freind Geppetto, Pinocchio was shocked that his name had come up in NannyGate. Pinocchio stated he did not appreciate being in any way linked with IRuby. He went on to state that while yes, he was a puppet, it was still undetermined who was pulling the strings at the Dhalla household. A statement released a few hours later by his attorney warned that any further comparisons to IRuby will result in legal action for slander and defamation. The lawyer also pointed out that when Pinocchio tells a lie, his nose gets bigger, then returns to normal when he tells the truth, whereas whenever IRuby tells a lie, her ego gets bigger, and has not returned to it's same size since 2004, when she was first elected.
Another close friend of Pinnocchio's was was asked his thought's on who it was who might have started a conspiracy to implicate Pinocchio. He just shrugged his shoulders and said he thought it was Goofy.
UPDATE: Rumor has it that IRuby's lawyer, Howard Levvitt, will be calling a press conference at his law office tommorrow at 5:00 PM. A source has told us that an anonymous person has come forward with knowledge of a previous sordid relationship between Pinocchio and one of the nannies. Uncomfirmed at this time but word has it Levvitt will try and implicate a nanny, Pinocchio, and Jason Kenney in a love triangle.
