String-like class supporting case-insensitive comparisons

I'd like you to write a FuzzyString class which acts like a string, but does comparisons in a case-insensitive way.

For example:

>>> greeting = FuzzyString('Hey TREY!')
>>> greeting == 'hey Trey!'
>>> greeting == 'heyTrey'
>>> greeting
'Hey TREY!'

I'd like you to make sure equality and inequality match case-insensitively at first. I'd also like you to ensure that the string representations of your class match Python's string object's default string representations.

For the first bonus, try to ensure the other comparison operators work as expected:
