Funny Fibs We Tell Little Kids

We can all relate to being told white lies by our parents, for example, Santa coming down the chimney and his reindeer eating your carrots, if you pull a face and the wind changes, you’re stuck with that expression, the tooth fair leaving money under your pillow, apple trees growing in your stomach if you swallow them and hair going curly if you eat your crusts.

The question, ‘What lie have you told a kid just to mess with them?’ was posted to the huge content¬†website¬†and some of the replies below are truly hilarious! The funniest thing about it is that kids trust their parents so much they will literally believe anything they’re told.
