True story: A guy at work was complaining he had to go to his second job. Why? To support his 14 children. (Mind you, this is a young guy). Totally gullible, I remarked: "You're kidding!" He insisted truth and fact, laughing all the way.
The next week I asked him how his kids were, to which he replied, "Fine, I sold seven of them on ebay."
Jig was up, but he now still wanted to know how much Halloween candy I'll be bringing in for them!
