The only thing worse than a liar...



~~~~~~

When did telling lies become an acceptable practice?  When did people start accepting lies as truth and liars as normal?

Probably sometime before julius caeser was born, is my guess. ;)

So, Grog, when I got my ass whooped as a kid for lying, it was all for naught? It's ok? It was ok then? Damn! No one told my dad and granddad, apparently. :)

I hear ya, Brother. I hear ya.

I seem to remember my dad getting the belt once or twice. ;)

I was going to expand on your original point, but putting the sentences together would be more depressing than watching the olympics ;) so I'll leave it at what we already know, don't want to ruin your weekend. :)

Seriously - I can't get past the use of "that's" instead of "who's." Took my hubby awhile to break me of that nasty little foxpaw.

And from Tennessee Williams of all people.

I was going to comment on that when I posted it but figured, nah, if TW said it, it must be OK. :)

When I was a kid, "crimes" had definite penalties, usually measured in number of swacks with the ruler.
Trying to lie our way out of a spanking doubled the punishment.

I had the same, Bob.
