Okay then...

1. I was once shot at by a pimp for dropping a large Python from a bridge onto his Cadillac.

2. On a whim, I'm getting married tomorrow. (But between the Flyers and Eagles games)

3. Both may hands are scarred from a repelling accident when I was 16, and at a court mandated "outward bound" type camp.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude.

He's right...

It was a parent mandated church camp. Sorry Planderella, #2 is actually true.

More of an economic move than anything... I'm not telling my Dad until it's over. I don't want him try to fly out here to perform the ceremony.

My turn

1. I almost became a geologist and am 8 credits short of achieving another Bachelors Degree.

2. While on my honeymoon to Britain in 1993, my wife and I partied in a gay bar referred to by the bartender as "the biggest tart mart in London".

3. I can't swim, as I have a conditon known as "negative buoyancy"

Allright here goes:

1. I am in a promising local band.

2. I once came out of a bathroom in a hotel room to find my two friends with a hooker.

3. I am related to Madonna

I think 1 is true - as many planners/geographers also rack up lots of earth science credits.

I also think #2 is true,

My vote is #3

Hmm, isn't madonna from WI? so i think 3 might be true. however, i'm torn between 1 and 2, so i'm going to say the lie is #2, because it was probably Jfortin that was actually with the hooker. kidding!

No....I think Madonna is from Michigan, but then again, what's the difference? It's all cold up there.

I'll go with both #1's...

Mastiff wins for bturk's. While it is true I am 8 credits short of the BS in Geology, I did not almost become one!

Mastiff kills two birds with one stone.

The lie is number 1. I am not in a local band. I stole the phrase from an Onion shirt.

I came out of the bathroom of a dumpy hotel in Memphis only to find two of my friends talking to a woman, who we later learned was a hooker. She had saw us walking into the room and just knocked on the door. My friends let her in because they thought someone was chasing her. She was looking for money and wrote on a paper bag (that my friend still has) that she would do anything for $50 bucks because she needed money for a cab ride across town. I still don’t know why she wrote it on a bag. She must have been a shy hooker. We gave her 2 bucks for the bus and sent her on her way….and no, she did not have to do anything for the 2 bucks.

Madonna is a distant distant relative. I was on a genealogy forum on the web and learned that her mother, Madonna Ciccone-Fortin is distantly related to my grandpa, although you have to trace it back to some people living in Quebec in the late 1800s, so it is not like I see her at family reunions or anything.

Mmmm kay, then...

1. I climbed the Jung Frau in Switzerland, but didn't make it to the top.

2. I worked as a hot dog vendor in New Orleans.

3. I was a "tagger" in Philly, going by the name "Baron", and blacked out part of North Philly while adding grafitti to a subway train.

I'm guessing number 1 is the lie. You should have spent more time at the church camp!

I don't know, I'm going to go for #3 because I can totally picture you yelling "GET YOUR FOOTLONG HERE! HOT DOGS! HOT DOGS!"

Busted...

I never should have used the CoD reference... I knew better.

It was PARADISE vendors! And #2 is, indeed, the lie.

I'll play fair this time:

1. I became a fantasy football coach to impress a guy.

2. I'm getting ready to go to lunch.

3. I was an extra in the movie "The Big Easy."

#3 Not that you wouldn't be just lovely as the main character. They would be sooo foolish to waste your talents on a extra's position.

Damn, I think she's logged off and gone to lunch, with her boy friend from Fantasy Football, maybe? ;).

Holy! I sleep into 11:00 a.m. one day... and look what I miss!

Just in case, I'll pick #1 just because nobody else did.

Ooo! Let me play!

1. Upon getting my commission in the Army, I was assigned to the 12th Special Forces (Green Berets).

2. Like Frodo from the Lord of The Rings, I have nine fingers, having lost (part of) one to a table saw.

3. The U.S. Marshalls in South Dakota have issued a warrant for my arrest (yeah, I'm a bad boy).
