They’ve been doing it for more than 80 years and it all started with the local police chief of Burlington, Wisconsin and some of his officers talking about all the unbelievable lies they had been told over the years. So it kind of became a joke, telling tall tales and lies and who could outdo who.

It became an annual challenge and it eventually spread to the public and now they get entries from all over the world for the annual Burlington Liars Club Championship.

Among the winning entries over the years – a Wisconsin man said he and his wife “took two months to drive to Florida. They needed 267 rolls of paper towels, 3 cases of toilet bowl cleaner and 86 bottles of Windex to clean 450 rest rooms along the way because they saw signs that said Clean Rest Rooms Ahead and they believe in obeying all road signs.”

How about this one from a 15-year old – He says there are “three kinds of people in the world – those who are good at math and those who are not.”

And one annual winner claimed “his young grandson was such a pervasive liar by the time he was two years old he could dirty his diaper and convince his mother somebody else did it.”
