2. If you were to say, "He was...
...hoist on his own petard," you would be saying that somebody screwed himself.

On the other hand, if you were to say, "He got foisted by his own canard," you would be a complete dumbfuck who totally murdered that saying. :rofl:

3. Technically, "hoisted BY his own petard"
