This is a question Bullshit and Bullshitters

We've had questions about lies and liars in the past, but this time we're asking about the sort of fantasist who constantly claims they've got a helicopter in the garden or was "second onto the balcony at the Iranian Embassy siege". Tell us about the cobblers you've been told, or the complete lies you've come out with.

Thanks to dozer for the suggestion

I have a few friends who exaggerate a lot, and occasionally just make shit up, but what really gets on my tits is people who bullshit dogmatically.

In 1996, When I was 18, I moved with my two brothers into a house in York. We decided the house needed a name, and I, having always found the rubbish names people give to guesthouses funny (dun - in, shangri la etc), suggested "Seaview". So my little brother painted a jaunty sign in blue and white, with crabs and seagulls etc. and there we are.

The name causes quite a lot of interest at parties and whatnot, it was even the subject of a "humorous" piece in the Yorkshire Evening Press a few years ago. My sister-in-law, who still lives there, told me recently that she'd been talking to somebody who's asked about it, and having had the above recounted by my sis-in-law, had CORRECTED her, telling her that it had been named thus for as long as she could remember and definitely a long time before they moved to the city.
