Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Bravo And sometimes, we find ourselves telling REALLLLLY DUMB lies, for no apparent reason! So comedian Eliza Skinner posed a question to her followers on Twitter: Eliza Skinner @elizaskinner What’s the dumbest lie you’ve told? 03:58 AM - 17 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite And the answers have been 1) hilarious and 2) a little *too* relatable. Like, why do we put ourselves in these dumbass situations? Eliza Skinner @elizaskinner I told a Lyft driver I was a writer and when he pressed further I said I wrote “Sci fi Short stories.” He said “whoa, not much of a market for that. Where do you publish them?” “Magazines, mostly”. I felt like I was on fire the whole time. 04:15 AM - 17 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Sometimes you just need a cool story to tell at parties. Billy Scafuri @BillyScafuri @elizaskinner I used to tell people that I was the voice that whispered “zoom zoom” at the end of Mazda commercials. 04:03 AM - 17 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Other times, it's a strategic parenting move. #EndSuperdelegates @pppatticake @elizaskinner When she was little we told our daughter that the ice cream truck only plays music to let you know they're out of ice cream-- worked for years until she was at Siobhan's house and they busted me😂 04:21 AM - 17 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite And sometimes, you'll say just about anything to save a little $$$. Ryan Court @2ryan1 @elizaskinner I was buying an engagement ring for my now wife when the sales lady asked if I was a Christian. I had a feeling that a yes answer meant a better price. So I said yes. Then she wanted to know what church I went to and all sorts of specifics. 20 lies later, I got the deal. 04:10 AM - 17 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite People have also started sharing the dumbass lies they told as a kid. chantal claret @chantalclaret @elizaskinner In 2nd grade I was so afraid I had a giant late fee for a library book that was months late I said I had a twin named Claret Chantal who had taken it out. ☹️ Needless to say they did not believe me. 04:03 AM - 17 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite Cuz, let's be honest, pretty much every kid is a lying sociopath: Steven Lucas @stevenclucas @elizaskinner When I was in 3rd grade I thought having glasses was REALLY cool. I told my mom I was having trouble seeing. She set an appt with the optometrist and I purposefully said all of the wrong letters during the test. 04:02 AM - 17 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite We thought we were SO slick back then. Britt Hanley @britt_hanley @elizaskinner When I was 7 I told everyone my name was really Karen. 04:01 AM - 17 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite But in the end, you always ended up getting caught. Amanda Wirtz @GeekHostAmanda @elizaskinner In Kindergarten I told my mom I had been chosen as the new school mascot. She believed me and after a few days went to ask the teacher about the practice schedule and my teacher, rightfully, looked at her like she was insane. I still don’t know why I did this. 04:05 AM - 17 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite As for the dumbest lie *I've* ever told? Well, I once told the lady cutting my hair that I was studying marine biology in school. Unfortunately for me, she had a LOT of questions about dolphins. Oops.
