The question of why people lie is profoundly important and endlessly intriguing.
While everybody lies at some point, due to fear, looking for self-gain or pride, there are moments that you clearly cannot understand why would anyone attempt to fool you with such a bad lie. 
Here are some hilarious moments of people getting caught red-handed:

1. When local news promises to blur the face, and then this happens.

This is giving me trust issues for sure. They only hide the identity of the person in front of the camera, but this woman will never trust the news ever again.

7. When an idiot over-promise it looks like this.

You can't have your cake and eat it too, and the same thing applies here. You cannot promise that your fabric is made of 700% material, but I can guarantee that this tag is 100% false. 

8. Lying about losing your memory just for the fun of it.

Why play naive when you are clearly caught red-handed?

Nice try kid, but next time you claim your father is the owner of Microsoft, make sure you google the name Bill Gates. 

12. Trina had help from her friend, now her lie is bulletproof.

17. Oh dear, why would you charge your friend for a meal you did not pay for?

17. Oh dear, why would you charge your friend for a meal you did not pay for?

18. Wanna see a magic trick?
