Son Discovers Mom Lied About Allergies to Keep Him on Strict Diet

Modern life gives us a huge amount of liberty over our diets, and some diets are definitely more healthy than others. Often parents are trying to keep their kids safe and healthy as best they can, but it seems like lying to your kid about a life-threatening allergy isn't the right way to go about it. It's kinda reminiscent of these vegans who were called fake because they feed their cat meat. Sometimes the exact opposite of this happens, like when this Tumblr user realized they actually had allergies.

Deceptive Ads and Bad Products Designed by Jackholes

The idea behind having a good product is that more people will buy it, but sadly, companies still lie and abuse their users and customers with all sorts of manipulative products designed by jerks.

Outlandish Lies that Kids Told Other Kids

What can we say? Kids are dumb. Growing up, everyone had that kid at school who tried to get away with as much BS as possible. Sometimes a kid tried to convince everyone else he had a pet dinosaur, or that his dad was a secret agent. And since we were all kids and no one knew better, sometimes we'd go on believing these idiotic lies for days before that same kid's dad picked him up from school in his catering truck. Lying to kids seems to be a big part of the human experience, hence these adults who are still salty about the unjust lies they were told as kids. Some people are just dumb and try lying to their healthcare professionals. And some people still try to lie online just for fake internet points.

Tweets of outrageous lies kids told each other.
