    Feel free to point out the lie or not a few days after you post...it's up to you.

    - I worked with a former WWF/WCW wrestler
    - I am adopted after being left here by a French teen
    - I have seen two no-hitters live...and 1 was a perfect game

    Go ahead, pick out the lie or post your own.

    The French thing seems too absurd to be a lie. I'll say the no-hitters is a lie

    Lie - The WWF/WCW wrestler thing.

    - As a child, Richard Petty held me in his arms
    - I can play three instruments
    - I have run a marathon

    Lie - I'll guess 3 instruments; I want to say I remember you saying you did run a marathon (maybe it was only a half and that's how you are getting around it, or maybe you actually can play 4 instruments, which makes it a lie. LOL).

    I'm going to say the French teen dumped you based on your handle spikechiquet -- chiquet being the name of your mom, whose identity you learned after years of research. I can see you being at 2 no-hitters. The WWE thing is a lie.


    - I was named after Joey Bishop because he's my great-uncle
    - I interviewed Jimmy Carter and Evander Holyfield 10 minutes apart one morning
    - I've never shot heroin

    - I was stabbed in a bar fight.
    - I was offered a professional soccer contract coming out of college.
    - My second time was with a teen soap opera actress I met at a theme park.

    And I think spike's lie is the no-hitters.

    Spike's lie: The no hitters
    Xan's: Heroin
    Inky: Bar Fight.

    I had a near-death experience at 18, where my heart stopped for nearly 5 minutes
    I watched Elvis Presley eat meatloaf at my mom's diner table.
    I lost 107 pounds before gaining 90 back.

    Xan - Whew, this one's tough: the heroin one seems like the obvious lie, but, hell...I've done coke (needles freak me out)...so I rule it as truth and say the lie is Joey Bishop

    Inky - I wanna say pro soccer, but you are a soccer fan...so, I say truth and will pick bar fight also

    TigerVols: The first and last seem to go together...so I will say Elvis is the lie

    - Never touched heroin, never will. I don't need that kind of trouble in my life.
    - Would have interviewed Colin Powell, too, but it was 7:30 and Jamaica's Election Day canvassing was about to begin.
    - My parents saw Joey Bishop and the Rat Pack dozens of times in Vegas and must have enjoyed his brand of humor on some level to name me after him -- but the lie is that I'm in no way related to Joey Bishop.

    Inky's is soccer -- he's never even watched a soccer game let alone strapped on shinguards and stepped onto a field.

    Tiger's is -- ... just so long as Elvis wasn't eating *that* Meatloaf. But with the whole Vols part of the handle I'll assume he's from Tennessee and that somehow his mom had ties to Elvis. I'm going to say he never lost 107 then gained 90 back.

    At what point do we cop to which one is the lie?
