Men aren’t nearly as good at telling the truth as the fairer sex, according to a new poll from Fox, conducted to promote its Lie To Me DVDs. Men lie six times a day according to the study, twice as much as women. Just for kicks, here are the top lies both genders tell each other:


  1. Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine.
  2. This will be my last drink.
  3. No, that doesn’t make you look fat.
  4. I had no signal.
  5. My battery died.
  6. Sorry, I missed your call.

  1. Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine.
  2. Oh, this isn’t new, I’ve had it for ages.
  3. It wasn’t that expensive.
  4. It was on sale.
  5. I’m on my way.
  6. I don’t know where it is, I haven’t touched it.
