Well, maybe where he starts making stuff up is a parody, given the extent
to which he was making things up, and people really can't get enough of it.
Most people can't tell you a Zarqawi from a zebra but they'll tell you all
about J.Lo's exploits.  Is there an irony in this?  The rich have fun fun

and envying the rich their fun fun fun.  Both are pretty equally miserable.
That's the direction in which I thought Waugh seemed to be going.
