Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as host 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 your responses. Today is Di’s turn to host and here are her questions.
1. What is a pince nez?
The question should be who is Prince Nez, and the answer is Prince Nez is the son and heir to the throne of King Nez.

4. What happened in Pudding Lane in 1666?
