* Prussia, France, and Spain were ''definitely'' not watching Germany, Italy, and Japan [[ThePeepingTom get it on]] in the finale of ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]''. Yep. They were only performing surveillance on the ship. Yeah. Sure.

* Disguised as Jester White with a PaperThinDisguise, Sirius Black in ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'' denies having even ever ''heard'' of such a person as Sirius Black. To Snape. Who just saw him put on the disguise.

In the ideal version of the trope, most people accept this because of their built-in WeirdnessCensor, or because it's executed as a SeamlessSpontaneousLie. When it fails, you get ThatLiarLies followed by ImplausibleDeniability. May or may not involve {{hesitation|EqualsDishonesty}}. Will almost inevitably accompany any PaperThinDisguise or MostDefinitelyNotAVillain. Often delivered by a BadLiar. SuspiciouslySpecificDenial is a subtrope. See also MetaphoricallyTrue.

** WrestleMania III's attendance was 93,173, a record attendance that would endure for 20 years, or rather it ''would'' have if it wasn't a boldfaced lie. Various sources have claimed the actual number was closer to 80,000, and possibly as low as 78,000.

** "Once in a Lifetime!" For a full year, the WWE shoved that phrase down fans' throats while promoting the match between John Cena (again) and Wrestling/TheRock, for the main event of Wrestling/WrestleMania XXVIII, claiming it was an event that could only, should only, would only happen "Once in a Lifetime!". With such insistence that it was a "Once in a Lifetime!" event over and over, one would expect it to actually BE "Once in a Lifetime!" But it was not. It happened again the next year, and the WWE knew it would from the start. The Rock said in an interview he had been signed to three WrestleMania matches, the first costing him the title, the second a rematch with Cena, the third a rematch with the title on the line. Maybe the phrase "Twice in a Lifetime" just isn't catchy enough, so they decided "Who cares? Everyone will pay to watch it anyway!"

** In yet another routine, young Bill Cosby tries to get out of trouble when his teacher sends home a note asking to meet with his parents. Cosby tells his father that the teacher called his father a name for no reason whatsoever. Despite the obvious holes in young Bill's story, [[NobodyCallsMeChicken his father is so outraged that he resolves to go to the school the following morning and pick a fight with the teacher]]. The story ends hilariously with Cosby Sr. wailing on young Bill right in the teacher's office once he realizes that the friendly teacher merely wanted to discuss Bill's poor marks.
