Wild Weeds
Liars Hall of Fame

      There have been lots of lies told during the time that humans have inhabited the Earth. Making a list of the most convincing liars and the biggest liars of all time would be an enormous undertaking. So many lies have been told and often the consequences have been disastrous. Then again some lies have been necessary to avoid bad outcomes. So, do we judge a lie by the outcome, its inventiveness, the boldness and audacity of its teller, or what? Inducting individuals into a Liars Hall of Fame would be a difficult process. The list of liars is so long that it might take ages to decide who should be included and so in the meantime we have the song and video embedded on this web page. Here a top ten list of liars is proposed and although it's offered in jest it at least provides a jumping off point for someone who wants to put in the time and search through the history books and accounts of current events to propose a more authoritative list of the World's Greatest Liars!

The day on which I met him
He said his name was Lou
And when it came to stories
He told quite a few
If selling was his passion
Then lying was his game
I 'spect he'll wind up one day
In the Liar's Hall of Fame

   If instant truth is what you're looking for
   Then tell a lie and then tell some more
   Sometimes he'd tell one just for fun
   He'd sell a lie to anyone!

More artful than compulsive
Lou was really good
He'd rather lie than tell the truth
Anytime he could
The truth is inconvenient
The truth ain't any fun
If everybody told the truth
We'd never get things done

Dirty little liars
And dirty little lies
The ones that lie really good
Are hardly recognized
The liars that lie the best
Don't get themselves confused
Good liars keep their stories straight
And keep track of the clues
