    Annual World’s Biggest Liar competition underway in England

    Competitors from around the world gathered on Thursday for the annual competition to crown the world’s biggest liar.

    President Barack Obama is the odds on favorite to win this year.

    Each contestant is given up to five minutes to weave the best fib in the contest, which was founded in honor of 19th-century Bridge Inn landlord Will Ritson, who was reportedly legendary for his lies.

    Barbi, superman and pinocchio are walking down a street when on a window they read’ Beauty Contest’. Ten min later barbi walks out with a trophy. Next place downon the window ‘ Arm Wrestle Contest’ Ten min later Superman walks out with a trophy. Next place down on the window ‘ Lying Contest’. Hour later Poinocchio walks out and says, do you two know who Barrack Obama is?

  • Letmethink

    Morning All.
    The Middle East is heating up. This is going to get nasty and I fear for Israel.
    1966–thanks for the song. Love Patsy Cline: not sure which of her songs is my fav. it changes from time to time. Love Crazy and her version of San Antonio Rose.
    Interested to see how hearings go today. This is such a scandal and it would seem that all Americans should care. But again it seems the left wants to deny and deflect. To blame John McCain for wanting to get to the bottom of this is dishonest. But that seems to be the talking point if you go to any leftist blog. There always has to be a bogey man to gang up on to deflect from what should be the issue.

  • Letmethink

    Adverse winds affect us all. It is how we adjust our sails that make the difference.

  • Raz

    Good morning Bossy,

    Obviously you can be wrong and still hold on to viewers, remember what happened in WI? Chris Matthews had a melt down that was epic and yet, here they are. Give things a bit of time, and we shall see what happens cuz you can hold down a lie (Benghzi, the stock market, small businesses closing left and right, the true cost of Obamacare, etc) for just a small amount of time before it blows up in your face.

  • Raz

    Oh, now where is that REMF Mark? Whose skirts is he hiding behind other then his own?

  • Letmethink

    Morning Raz, that is the left’s newest talking point in their continuing assault on FOX. They are the only ones who think it is a problem so really is going no where–more of the hypocrisy of the left.

  • Letmethink

    My question to the president is, “If Rice had nothing to do with Benghazi why was she sent out to lie about the attack when you were adamant in the debate that the day after the attack you called it a terrorist attack?”—can’t have it both ways–

  • Coffee Steve

    Goooooooooooooooooooooooood Friday Morning Everyone

  • tony

    Good morning Steve awaiting your perils of wisdom.

    Israel Mobilizes Troops,
    Tanks Near Gaza Border

    I’m following the soon to be war on some Israeli sites, this is getting very serious, a long range missile was shot into Israel

  • Coffee Steve

    Good morning Steve awaiting your perils of wisdom.

    Good Morning

    Never eat a wooden pickel it can ruin your teeth :-)

  • Letmethink

    Hostess Brands, the maker of Wonder Bread and Twinkies, said in a court filing that it will wind down operations and sell its assets after a fight with labor unions.

    Unions just destroyed some more jobs.

  • Letmethink

    @coffee I’m following the soon to be war on some Israeli sites, this is getting very serious, a long range missile was shot into Israel
    Absolutely–when they can hit Tel Aviv it is getting serious.

    You and the GOP are the ones creating the false dichotomy. Engaging in a campaign of murder and destruction because you don’t like a video that was produced by an unrelated person IS terrorism.

  • Letmethink

    Petraeus to say he knew within 24 hours it was terror. How does he sync with his first report that it was the video?–pressure from White House over his affair??–this could be interesting.

  • Coffee Steve


    The size of the troop and artillery massing up at the border on Gaza tells me there’s not much hope for a quick ending to this, and that firing of a long range missile into Israel made it a whole new ball game.


    Seems the General is about to rat the WH out

  • Letmethink

    @Coffee Seems the General is about to rat the WH out
    The truth needs to come out. It is always the cover up that sinks them.

  • Gabriel

    I agree with Rachel Maddow that there are two types of people interested in this Benghazi business. There are those who are honestly seeking answers in order to avoid making the same mistake again (as a lot of Americans were after 911), and there are those who simply want to make this a d(i)ck swinging contest about which “team” is still the reigning connoisseur extraordinaire of foreign policy and defense. Of course the latter would have us believe that its the party who had 5000 Americans killed when they mistakenly believed that Saddam had WMDs. Who sent Colin Powell out with vials of fake powder again? I NEVER did find out.

  • Ratboy

    Good Morning all!
    Another frosty morning here! Just a quick one before I am off to my board meeting.

    If Petreius was being held “hostage” by the White house during the Bengazi debacle………………..who is going to have the last laugh?? From what came out of the hearings yesterday, if Petreius doesnt bak it up it will only make it worse for everyone. He says he wants to “clarify” things today. HMMMMMMMM?
