One day, an old man was walking down the street when he saw a bunch of kids surrounding something in a circular formation.
The old man who was now concerned about a fight he may need to break up walked over and saw that the kids were rather surrounding a dog.
The old man asked, “What are you kids doing around the dog?”
One of the kids answered and said, “We’re having a contest. Whoever can tell the best lie gets to take the dog home as a pet.”
The old man smiled and said, “When I was a kid, I never lied.”
There was a brief pause, and another kid in the group said, “Give him the dog.”
