The Third Biggest Lie In The World

Ann Landers challenged her readers to come up with the world’s third-biggest lie — right after “The check is in the mail” and “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.” Here is a sampling from the thousands she received:

– “It’s a good thing you came in today. We only have two more in

– “Five pounds is nothing on a person of your height.”

– “You made it yourself? I never would have guessed.”

– “Of course I’ll respect you in the morning.”

– “You don’t look a day over 40.”

– “Dad, I need to move out of the dorm into an apartment of my own so I can have some peace and quiet when I study.”

– “It’s delicious, but I can’t eat another bite.”

– “The new ownership won’t affect you. The company will remain the same.”

– “Your hair looks just fine.”

– “Put away the map. I know exactly how to get there.”

– “You don’t need it in writing. You have my personal guarantee.”

OK, actually the above is a joke, but I wonder if you could suggest any more good lies?

  1. [insert name of leader of foreign nation] is in a relationship with Al Qaeda and [country name] is a supporter of terror.

  2. (Sorry, this is just an edit of my previous post, which did not displayed correctly)

    I just thought of two more:

    “I hate to say I told you so…”


    “I would NEVER do that to you!”
