Fibbing Friday – Jan 29/21

As the title of this series suggests, truth is NOT an option as the idea is to fib, the bigger and more inventive the better, but keep it family friendly. It’s good to raise a smile, it’s tax free and exercises more muscles in your face than a frown!

Please visit the link for the original challenge,

Here are the questions and my answers 🙂

What are florins, tanners and bobs? –  Last names found in the phone book…however, Bob IS my uncle and I’m pretty sure his full name isn’t Bob Bob

What are Dead Man’s Fingers? – When the bottom layer of a trifle goes wrong. They begin as Lady Fingers, but if burned, they are referred to as Dead Man’s Fingers

What killed the Triffids? Ursula when she sought revenge on King Triton’s goldfish he referred to as Triffids 

What’s the difference between a buck and a quid? A buck will charge at you, antlers first, while a quid will simply scamper away 

How much is an old crown worth? – An old bottle of Crown is worth the same as a new one

What can be known as a ‘Little Gem’? A child who dances in the streets and brings warmth to observers hearts 

What is pearl barley? My Grandmother, Pearl, used to roll leftover dough into tiny beads. She referred to them as barley, but we called them barely 

Finish the sentence: ‘I came, I saw, I…’ – I came, I saw, I hid in fear of what I came and saw

Who said ‘Smile, it enhances your face value’? The Joker. Cause of the faces he sold, the ones who smiled at time of death were worth at least twice as much 

Where on the human body is the zygomatic bone found? When you have a bone to pick…yeah, that’s the one you use
