Posted by , Updated on October 20, 2016

Parents always tell their children they should not lie, explaining to them how bad and naughty telling lies is, but in fact, they lie very often themselves.

Some of the lies are actually so funny and creative that we decided to make an entire post out of them. If you want to have a good laugh over some of the finest lies, craziest and funniest lies, that have ever been told to kids by their parents, enjoy these 25 Most Ridiculous Lies Parents Actually Tell Their Kids.
