People Are Sharing The Ridiculous Lies Kids Told Them When They Were Younger

"Knew a kid whose dad worked at a TV station. The kid claimed he’d gone to the station and met the Ninja Turtles."

Kids say the darnedest things — and make up and/or believe the craziest lies, which they then share with all the other kids. When imaginations are running wild and kids don't understand things like logic or science, who can blame them? Maybe they really do think they can turn into a puppy if they try hard enough. 

Most of us probably have memories of a ridiculous lie someone told us when we were children — or, perhaps more cringe-worthy, a lie we ourselves spread. 

David Thorpe (Twitter user @Arr) asked his followers to tell him about kids they knew who lied a lot. "Hit me with their greatest lie," he wrote.  

Hit him they did. The tweet current;y has more than 2,500 replies, many of which include the hilarious and ridiculous made-up stories people heard from other kids. Not only are they funny, but they also made us a little nostalgic for a time when we believed mystical and impossible things really could happen to us and our friends.
