* Doctors will ''always'' say "this won't hurt a bit", regardless of whether it will hurt or not. This is because, due to the nocebo effect, telling you that it ''will'' hurt actually makes it hurt ''more''.

** The Serbian national broadcaster attempted the same thing in the early '90s. Instead of using a van, they came up with a ''Swedish TV detector'', which was merely an antenna glued to a Betamax video recorder. Some people actually bought the story.

* After first contact with the Germans in 1944, practically every officer in a British tank regiment claimed their issue watches (the very best kit available and each costing a month's pay) had been destroyed in action with the Germans. The CO commiserated for the loss, but begged his officers to show ''some'' restraint in their looting.

* ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'' has no ninjas. None at all. It's certainly not a whole character class available to [=PCs=] and [=NPCs=] alike. There certainly aren't entire families that specialise in it, and even if they did, they certainly wouldn't run the equivalent of the intelligence service.

* Music/{{Pavement}} used to tell outrageous lies in their early interviews. Stephen Malkmus claimed that they were invited to play at the "Peach Pit" for an episode of ''BeverlyHills90210'' (not as far fetched as it might seem, as Music/FlamingLips really did make such an appearance), but got into a fist fight with Jason Priestley.

** Wrestling/MickFoley did something similar at No Way Out 2011, putting his career on the line against Wrestling/TripleH in a Hell in a Cell match, losing in a brutal fight and claiming he was leaving forever. Well, he stayed away longer than Cena did (three weeks this time) but came back in the very next Pay-Per-View event. Since then, he wrestled in 2003, 2006, 2008, well, you get the idea.
