TommyymmoT: jeanwearinfool: I might be wrong but I always thought it was "bold-faced lie", not "bald-faced lie"

From what I could gather during a drunken 90 second Google search, they are both correct.

And, both are basically bastardizations of bare-faced lie...

jtown: I've got a new miracle diet.  Eat sensibly and exercise daily.  Please cash out your 401k/IRA and PayPal it to me.

i couldn't remember this guy's name before looking at this thread, but i knew this had to be about kevin trudeau. my dad has one of his "miracle cures" books, and it sat in their bathroom for years. i never read it. dad read it, and followed the sensible advice, but my dad being who he is isn't going to blindly follow advice from anyone.

If you act now we'll throw in a 2nd. just pay additional shipping and handling.

I got a copy of this assholes miracle cures book for free, signed by him, because I worked in a call center that took the phone orders.  after 10 minutes with the book I told my supervisor that I will not handle those calls anymore, because too many of them were cancer patients whose treatments had failed, and it was their last hope, and after reading the book, i knew it was bullshiat.  It had addresses for places and websites that actually had the "cures" for a nominal fee.  I figured that the cancer patient could take one final trip to the zoo with the money saved from not buying the book.

While I was pretty sure that I would be fired for refusing to take those calls, it turned out I was far from the first customer service rep to have a sense of ethics and morality, and the company had a policy written up for individuals like myself, that allowed us to take the more ethical calls for sounds of the 80s and countries biggest stars time life collections.

The script had me read a ton of country stars names in a row, with dolly parton followed by conway twitty.  The proximity of those names led me to the freudian slip of "conway titty"
