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

Independence daze
One July 4th, I was enjoying the massive fireworks filling the sky over San Francisco at a roof-top barbeque. One of the yanks said, "I suppose you don't have anything like this in England, do you?"

"Well no," I replied, "But we do have a party on July 5th. You know, to celebrate getting rid of you colonials."

I span a yarn about how we traditionally celebrate this date, with a special Marmite Pudding and baked beans, and July 5th crackers which contain union-jack party hats. I even said that in 1976, the bicentennial, we had massive street parties - surely you saw them on TV? Of course, a few people had vague memories of the Silver Jubilee street parties in '77, so I got quite a few to believe me.

Except the ones who thought my accent meant I was Australian, of course.
