I was a little surprised to hear that there's actually a prize for the best lie of the year.

As a child, it was sternly explained to me that the only prize for lying was a very sore behind and 30 minutes staring at a wall.

Mom was such a liar.

Turns out you can also get your name in the newspaper.

From the Associated Press:

MILWAUKEE—A Wisconsin man has earned bragging rights as the champion liar of 2010 with this line: "I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she left me before we met."
David Milz, 49, told The Associated Press he came up with the one-liner over the summer when he was joking around with colleagues. He thought it might be good enough to win the Burlington Liars Club's annual contest, but the call he received Wednesday was still a surprise.

Read the whole thing at the Denver Post.
