14 Funny, Weird or Insane Lies That Blew Up in Peoples’ Faces
Unless you’re lying to a baby, it’s important to harness the art of deception before attempting to use it out in the wild. Give too little information and you’ll get massacred by the follow-up questions you didn’t consider. Give too much information, and your story starts to sound as elaborate as a David Fincher film, which almost ensures being caught. Just ask the guy who, instead of breaking up with his girlfriend, concocted a story about his dad dying from cancer. Of course, the girlfriend found out that the dad was very much alive when she got a confusing phone call from the man himself.
That liar is not alone — in fact, he’s in the company of many who told funny, crazy and downright weird lies that backfired on them horribly.
