* "Roderick" the gargoyle in ''WebVideo/JourneyQuest'' speaks in literally nothing but Blatant Lies. This is [[JustifiedTrope because]] he was one half of a KnightsAndKnaves puzzle. [[LordErrorProne Glorion]] the warrior killed his truthful counterpart before even realizing that it ''was'' a logic puzzle, then dragged Roderick with him as an [[TheDragAlong unwilling sidekick]]. For the rest of the series, Glorion never catches on that Roderick only speaks in lies, though they are so blatant that most other characters get it right away. Sometimes this endangers both their lives, when Roderick tries to encode earnest warnings but Glorion fails to comprehend. Mostly, Roderick just exploits his curse to hurl sarcastic insults, which Glorion interprets as flattery.

*** Happens in the United States. General Michael Flynn was given the "full confidence" treatment by many Trump Administration officicals in the press. Less than 24 hours later, he was out of a job. While there was a big deal about how blatant the lie was, it was pointed out that this isn't the first time such a series of events happened (just a speedier time) and that when the President says he has "full confidence" in someone, most press officials cynically add "will turn in his resignation in due time" to the end of the sentence.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290215/9/Vegito-s-Harem Vegito's Harem]]'', Bulma claims to be 28 when Beerus crashes her birthday party. Krillin calls bullshit by pointing out that she's three years older than Goku who had Gohan in his 20s and Gohan himself is currently in his 20s.

* ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'': Episode 67:
-->'''Mercenary Cheerleader 2:''' Okay then, we're gonna go home. We're totally not gonna attack your friend and carry out the mission on our own.\\
'''Mackenzie:''' It sounds like you're being sarcastic. Are you being sarcastic?\\
'''Mercenary Cheerleader 2:''' What? No! We're totally just gonna head home, and not take that video.\\
'''Mackenzie:''' It sounds like you're doing that thing, you know, where you say you're not gonna do something even though it's painfully clear that you're still going to do it.\\
'''Mercenary Cheerleader 2:''' Whaaaaat? No, no that's my English accent. We're gonna head home, not attack anyone, and we're totally not gonna steal that videotape. You have my word. ''(hangs up)''\\
'''Mercenary Cheerleader 1:''' So... the mission's off?\\
'''Mercenary Cheerleader 2:''' No, believe it or not, I was being sarcastic.

* When [=NBCUniversal=] pulled out of their partnership with Nelvana over the [=KidsCo=] network in Asia and Europe, they claimed the reason was "growing challenges in the international children's television industry", which is an outright blatant lie, as western animation does still have a very strong market in Asia and Europe. The real reason was buried in the next sentence of their press release - they have just bought over the Sprout network from PBS and intend to focus on that network, which only caters to the United States, instead.

* In ''Webcomic/OperationReboot'', Shae feeds a story to her mother that is completely absurd (though much less so than her brother's). Hilariously, her mother buys it anyway.

*Many instances of the four telling these about their background in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' because they have no intention of telling the truth to people they distrust/dislike (which is pretty much everyone). And it's all taken completely seriously, because there are so many outworlders with odd backgrounds on C'hou that ''everything'' is plausible.

[[folder:Not Jokes]]
* A man gets yelled at by his wife for routinely getting so drunk that he vomits all over himself. One night, while at the bar, one of his drinking buddies gives him some advice: if he puts 20 bucks in his coat pocket, he can claim to his wife that he was vomited on by someone else who gave him money for drycleaning as an apology. The man thinks this is a brilliant idea and proceeds to drink until vomiting over himself as usual. When he gets home, he is greeted by his wife.
-->'''Wife:''' I thought I told you to stop drinking so much! Now I have to clean the vomit off your clothes ''again''!\\
'''Husband:''' Wait, it wasn't me this time! Some other guy vomited on me and he even gave me 20 bucks for drycleaning to say he was sorry! I swear I'm telling the truth, just check my coat pocket if you don't believe me!\\
''[The wife checks the husband's coat and pulls out two $20 bills]''\\
'''Wife:''' Hey, there's 40 bucks in here. What's the other 20 for?\\
'''Husband:''' Oh yeah, I forgot. [[spoiler:He also shit in my pants]].
