They say necessity is the mother of all inventions. Lies, then, are the older siblings of all inventions.

Let us face it. Parents have lied blatantly and shamelessly to us when we were kids and for most of us, we ended up believing those fibs for a really long time till the moment of truth arrived and shattered us all. Nevertheless, it makes us laugh now when we revisit the fibs and yes, at times, we end up appreciating it too!

Reddit users revealed the biggest lies their parents told them and they're hilarious. Which ones have you heard before?
