Fibbing Friday — In Honor of Tersesa

Di (aka Pensitivity101) hosts 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. For this week’s Fibbing Friday, Di has tapped into the originator of Fibbing Friday, Teresa Grabs, when she was known as The Haunted Wordsmith here on WordPress. Di has picked some gems from Teresa’s archives.

1. What did you find in the unopened can of mixed nuts?

The tip of a human finger.

2. They just cancelled your favorite TV show – what do you do?

Turn off the TV and write an angry blog post about how pissed off I am that they just canceled my favorite TV show.

3. What is the answer to 3 Down?


4. What do Scots wear under their kilts?

Plaid socks.

5. How did the platypus get its name?

These creatures were first discovered by Aboriginal Australians who named them. In their native tongue, “platy” means flat and “pus” means face.

6. You find a treasure map – what is the treasure?

An unlimited supply of Ben & Jerry’s Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream ice cream.

7. They are making a movie of your life – what is the biggest whopper they invent?

That I invented the Whopper burger sandwich they serve at Burger King.

8. Bollocks doesn’t mean what Americans think it does…what does it really mean?

These are the metal sheds in bowling alleys where the bowling balls are locked away when the bowling alley is closed.

9. What did you give the last person who asked you for a tip?

I told him to not sweat the small stuff and gave him a dime.

10. What is over the next hill?

Fame and fortune.

    They also named the koala from “koa” meaning “cuddly” and “la” meaning “bear”. Isn’t that cute. We owe a lot to them……

        Koalas are only tame in sanctuaries. Don’t pick up one in the wild. They will scratch your eyes out. One day you might visit……..we have a democracy here
