* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'' has [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Larry Butz]] show his masterpiece drawing that he says is ''exactly'' what he saw at the time. The masterpiece shows a silhouette flying above a burning bridge. ''Nobody'' believes it's real... until Edgeworth realizes that Larry's drawing ''is'' correct. [[spoiler: Larry was lying on his back and looking up at the bridge, so what he actually saw was a body swinging ''underneath'' the bridge, but then drew the scene upside-down]].

* In the ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' story "The Boscombe Valley Mystery", this is what leads Holmes to believe that the young man who has been arrested may be innocent after all -- the statement he gave the police is too stupid to be a lie. Played with, in that Holmes himself argues that the police (and Watson) are in fact simultaneously crediting the man with lying too much ''and'' too little, in that his story contains several outlandish details that the police would outright disbelieve and / or work to incriminate him while not containing enough details that might exonerate him, as a man who was lying would be certain to try and include.

* A version of this appeared on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. When the town thought that Skinner and Ms. Krabappel were having sexual relations at school, Skinner cleared his name by telling them he was a virgin. This worked because, according to Superintendent Chalmers, [[AManIsNotAVirgin no man anywhere would ever pretend to be a 45-year-old virgin]]. [[spoiler:The end implies that he was, in fact, lying]].
