Di (aka Pensitivity101) and Melanie (Sparks From a Combustible Mind) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. This week is Di ’s turn and she has given us a mishmash of questions.
1. What is liquid gold? It’s what becomes of your gold jewelry when you melt it down.
2. What is housemaid’s knee? Usually calloused.
3. Why is the Eiffel Tower so named? Because looking up at it from the ground, it’s an eyeful.
4. Can elephants swim? Yes, as long as they’re wearing floaties on their legs.
5. What is a pot hole? It’s a hole in the floor where potheads hide their stash of marijuana.
6. What is a woolly pulley? It’s what they call a baby woolly mammouth.
7. What is a tap washer? It’s another name for a bathtub spigot.
8. Why do we have warts on our fingers but corns on our toes? For the same reason we have rings on our fingers and bells on our toes.
9. What is a pendulum? It’s a conundrum that swings one way or the other.
10. Where will you find a pupil and iris? In little Iris’ third grade classroom.
