I never knew that lying could be an international professional sport:
The “world’s biggest liar” has been crowned, after telling a tale about a German World War II submarine invading Britain to capture digital television decoders.

I don’t know about you, but if that’s the best lie that the biggest liar in the world could come up with, that’s pretty darn sad. I find it hard to believe that the worlds best liar was selected on the basis of one of the oldest lies in the book.
Where is the creativity? Imagination? Novelty? Impact? Bah. I know people who could come up with better tales in their sleep. In fact, I think your average blogger is funnier than this guy. I’d really like to see a few fellow bloggers apply for the competition next year, especially the mythomaniacal abarclay12. Visit her blog “The Leaky Brain” and experience pseudologia fantastica in it’s most inspiring form.
Children? Layers? Politicans? Desperate Used Car Salesmen? Choirboys in comparison. Winning by virtue of a tall fish tale? Please. These folks have no idea what a true liar sounds like…
