Lying is never a good idea. Sooner or later, the truth always comes out. And if you're spreading lies on social media, then there's a good chance that you'll be caught red-handed sooner than you expected. Because when you lie on the internet, you're lying to the world, and there's always somebody out there who's willing to call your bluff.

Take a look at this list full of funny lies of attention seekers to see what we mean. Compiled by Bored Panda, the white lie examples below serve as an important reminder that if you really must insist on pathological lying, either do it well or don't do it at all. Don't forget to vote for the funniest fibber!

UPDATE: We recreated some of the images because the original versions were pretty bad quality. That's why some of them have the same blurred profile pics. But as far as we know, all of the actual compulsive lying stories are real.

We had so many people in a whole semester of Environmental Ethics go Vegan for various lengths of time. It's just not always sustainable.

Huh, the "poor kid" and his "mom" sure post on a lot of these Facebook lies. The one who called out the guy for the runny poo is on this one, too. This entire post may be a lie.

If you have a kindle or some other type of tablet with the FB app, does that also register as "mobile"?
