We need to settle this. Pick your top three.

The poll is actually limited to 10 entries otherwise I would have included 'training as a chef in Paris', 'running FOREX and trading courses', 'running over a deer and swapping it at his local butcher for some goodies', 'Doing Stephen Hawking's mortgage', 'keeping a super car in a cowshed' and 'doing a rubiks cube in a minute'.

Where's the "Supercar stored in a cow shed with no cows in it, owned by a deceased farmer" option?

I've never been so popular on here.

It fulfills a deep sense of insignificance.

Pity the poll doesn't give us the option to pick 3. There's just so many whoppers to choose from

Performing the autopsy has to be number 1. Didn't even make the list but it's my favourite

top ten is hard, I reckon you'd get to 30 Whoppers easily

for me its Brain surgery, Craniotomy for 1 & 2, others just pale a bit into 'so what' territory amongst all the other fibs.
I liked the Laker Air pilot / photoshopped entry form / over a decade difference in time one as well !

My favourite porkie pie is that he's just a little man called Neville living in a semi in Peterborough.

Hilarious. I can't recall who it was that suggested that might be the case. :lol:

Careful. You have breached forum rules.

I live in Oundle. Peterborough is 13 miles away. I live in a detached 4 bed house.

I have a particular fondness for the Cambridge Uni and University Challenge ones. Laker was also fun for how quickly it crumbled.

The sportscar has just been a bit worrying to be honest

His dad betting on the 100/1 outsider at the National (or whichever race it was) was a good one, for just how quickly he was shot down for being full of shit.

Just because it was the first time I really challenged him on his bullshit, it was the taking of the salute. He refused to back down for ages and now waves it airily off with an 'i've explained that's. Some front on him

They're all doozies really.

And it seems from his post on this thread that he doesn't understand the word 'popular'

There are very good reasons for me keeping that under wraps.

Literally.

I'm not going any further.

I have a Kuga and a Fiesta at home. They are packed with everything and have personalised number plates, but that's about it.

That's the best one because it's the only one there's definitive proof it's a lie.

But that is exactly what my father did. It bought my mother a car.

I have no solid evidence, so my word is all you can get.

To be honest, I could not be bothered at all by the stupid remarks made. Those whom have decided to have a go at me are struggling.

Carry on. I'm in the limelight.

The reason is that it doesn't exist. Every single person who has seen the thread knows this.

FFS Globus, for all your idiocy on here at times, I actually think you would be fun to have a beer with. But you have got noticeably worse over the last few weeks and I really think you should have a rest from here for a few weeks and come back recalibrated.

Globus mentioned that he had major surgery recently

It is not unusual to have a foggy brain / forget stuff afterwards

It exists. Go on and solve a clue in the crossword. I might regain respect for you.

The one about Asbestos was most remarkable one. If anything HH was too restrained in his response - if it was actually true then Globby should have been prosecuted.

No. Do give me the evidence.

What's the point, you'll just ignore it or bluster around in circles like you usually do.

Pronouncing the deaths of road accident victims is one of the more macabre fibs, and that's saying something.

I suspect that a few of the others have been definitively shown to be bullshit too, just not quite as efficiently as that one. It was a good couple of pages on that thread.

That's what comes of doing your own surgery by candlelight and mirror.
