25 Completely Pointless Lies You Can't Stop Telling

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

All these stretchers were told by functioning adults, with full awareness that they're lies, and knowing full well that they'd have absolutely no consequences.
