Friday Frivolity, Lies Parents Tell Edition

At last week's party, we commiserated about that wonderful time of year when our body clocks get totally thrown out of whack:  Ah, yes - the time change.

This week, we're remembering all those lies parents have told kids over the years.  What were the best ones you heard during your childhood?

To begin with, I noticed that there are an awful lot of lies we tell kids that have to do with bodily functions...

But regardless of the content, it seems these lies all revolve around threats to get kids to do what we want...

But I must say, there is one typical "lie" parents tell kids that really is true:

"If you do that, your face will freeze that way!"

Circa 1986

Aaaaaand, the past two years...
