I’m not lying!

Burlington, Wisconsin has a Liar’s Club and every year different liars from all over compete for a prize.
Over the past 10 years the winning fib’s are as follows:

I have a 1979 Dodge car that has over 200,000 miles on it and is so old that the license bureau now issues upper and lower plates for it. ~Maxine Christenson, Exira, Iowa

When I moved to Iron Mountain, Michigan, I brought my pet sheep. It grazed on the mineral rich grass. When it came time to shear it in the spring, I ended up with nine pounds of steel wool. ~Sandi Weld, Sorrento, Florida

My wife is so indecisive about choosing paint colors, our 1800 square foot home in now 1000 square feet due to all the coats of paint. ~Bill Meinel, Burlington, Wisconsin

We had so much rain during the spring and summer seasons, there were puddles on our lake. ~Mardy Nersesian, Kenosha, Wisconsin

My son’s high school grades went from all A’s to all D’s. This happened right after he had his wisdom teeth extracted. ~Bill Meinel, Burlington, Wisconsin
There are three kinds of people in the world; those who are good at math, and those who are not. ~James Wilberg, Franklin, Wisconsin

The Wisconsin River was so low this year that the local government started taxing us for more property on our riverfront lot. ~Greg Peck, Janesville, Wisconsin

My grandson is the most persuasive liar I gave ever met. By the time he was 2 years old he could dirty his diaper and make his mother believe someone else had done it. ~Gareth Seehawer, Oconto Falls, Wisconsin

I just realized how bad the economy really is. I recently bought a new toaster oven and as a complimentary gift, I was given a Bank. ~Larry Legro, Sun Prairie, Wisconsin

I almost had a psychic girlfriend, but she left me before we met. ~David Milz, Bristol, Wisconsin

It seems that Wisconsin has more champion liars than any other place – except one!
Why do we lie?
We lie to save our own skin, we lie to gain, and we’ll lie to get someone else in trouble.
I have often said about a particular person that you can tell when he’s lying because his lips move.
It is written You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Ex 20:16
Now that sounds rather judicial as if we are testifying for or against someone.
But every time you speak to someone you are giving a testimony; a testimony of your honesty and integrity.
If the ninth commandment isn’t strong enough then beware of what comes next.
It is that one place that will exceed the Wisconsin population of good liars; all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. Rev 21:8
That’s one crowd I don’t want to join and I’m not lying!

  1. I believe that all of us have been a part of that club in our past. Reminds me of the story of twin brothers who got a puppy for their birthday. They decided that each of them wanted no part of the rear of the puppy so they figured out that if one of them owned the whole puppy, then the pup would be happy. The figured out that whoever told the biggest lie would own the puppy, so, they are sitting on their porch swapping lies when one of the local Pastors comes by and hears their whoppers. He politely asks what they are doing and they tell him the whole story. He tells them they should not lie and says,”I have never told a lie in my entire life” One of the boys looks at the other and says,”Give him the puppy”
    Yes, the Father of lies is alive and well in our Nation today, and boy has he got people believing some whoppers.
    Happy New Year my brother!

  2. Why is it that wrong doing is easier than doing the right thing? In the long run the truth keeps us free of guilt, empending trouble, & daily fear.
