Well, I have been GREIVOUSLY wounded by aspersions cast my stories have been exaggerations. In a spirit of fellowship, kinship, oneupmanship, and perhaps even bullship (yeah, look THAT one up) I invite my fellow residents of the asylum FORUM brethern to post here some of the events that they have witnessed in their lifetime. Since the first liar ain't got a chance, I'll start with my Uncle Buck.
He was a country boy from the hills of Virginia. He came into a bit of money from a land deal- he was offered $500 for 2 acres of land- but city folks were unaware of the geography of the mountains, and how steep it can be. Buck took the money and left town before they found he had sold them both sides of the same acre of land. One of them tried to dig a water well, and but it went thru to his neighbor's living room, and folks were injured by cows falling out of pastures, and landing in cornfields two counties away (corned beef was popular in that area). He headed West to attempt to increase his capital. In the oilfields of Texas, he met a pair of wildcatters. They convinced him to invest his grubstake in their next wells- with no intention of sharing any finds with him. Two weeks later they took him to three already drilled wells, and told him that they were the wells he had funded, but each was a 7000 ft deep "duster"- no oil at all- and he owned them. Trying to look at the bright side of things (bright side- usually policeman's spotlight shining into your backseat), without a nickel left to his name, and owning only 21,000 feet of dry oil well, he went out that night, dug them up, and carried them to Kansas. He cut them into 3 ft lengths, and made a fortune selling them there as pre-dug post holes. Unfortunately, two holes contained Texas termites, resulting in the deforestation of Kansas that may still be seen. The story of the preacher's red-headed daughter that invited him into the choir loft to count hymnals shall wait for another day.
OK- your turn. Please note Navy Chiefs, Marine Gunnys, Army Master Sgts, and used car salesmen may be assigned a handicap of being placed in the "Professional Liar" category, just to level the playing field.
