Life is Funny - Carnival games


This week, I've dug up an earlier post to use as my Life is Funny post. Why? Because I couldn't come up with anything else I love this game so much. So you get a game within a carnival. How lucky are you? Now you have the opportunity to join in on the Life is Funny blog carnival by doing your own original post, or by playing along with the game. See how easy I make it?


There's a game I've played over years called "Two Truths and Lie." Have you ever played it? Well, I thought it might be fun to play it here.

Here's how you play. You tell two truths about yourself and one lie, then everyone else tries to guess which is the lie. Fun, huh? I'll tell mine in this post, and anyone who would like to play, other than my immediate family and those who played with me before, can make their guesses in the comments. You can also leave your truths and lie in the comments, or better yet, do your own blog post and sign up on Mr. Linky below. No cheating by trying to go back and find the answers in my old posts now. What fun would that be?

But wait! As an added bonus, I'm throwing in a link to a video! Yeah, it's just a link. I can never get the SNL stuff to embed here. Not sure why. But it's totally worth checking out HERE. You're welcome!

Without further ado, my two truths and a lie:

1. An Arab man tried to buy me.

2. I've ridden an elephant through the jungle.

3. I spent a year performing with a circus.

So? What do you think?


Helen said...

I don't think you performed with the circus. Not wild and crazy enough...

Peter P said...

I'm going with the Elephant in the jungle... Unless it's a band by that name.

I can't do a post because of the giveaway I'm doing but here's my three:

1) One of my Grandfathers was involved in a 'friendly fire' incident - in WWII
2) One of my great-uncles was held in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp
3) My other grandfather was involved in the D-Day landings in Normandy.

Two are true... one is false!

I'm with Helen. No circus.

1. I've never met anyone from my mother's family because they disowned her when she married my father

2. I used to sing in bars.

3. I once shot a man just to watch him die.

Heart2Heart said...

Yeah I would imagine it was the circus. I could see an Arab man offering to buy you and even ridding an elephant in a jungle, this is either a fake elephant sitting in a jungle themed area or at a zoo where the same jungle theme area exists. Although elephants are really found in jungles more like tundras on the African plains.

I'm with the circus, well, I mean the circus one isn't true. Not for a whole year anyway.
1. I once asked our then-Republican governor if he liked elephants, after he complimented me on my elephant brooch.
2. I used to dance at John Deere trade shows while singing about stack wagons and utility tractors. In white go-go boots.
3. I biked across Iowa on a tandem with nobody on the back seat.

Billy Coffey said...

I think you're lying and all three are true. You can't fool me, Wendy.

Beth said...

Ooooo....good game! Katdish, c'mon. We all know you shot a man just to watch him die. I'm getting tired of you bragging about it all the time.

I vote the elephant one is a lie. Just to be different.

Here's mine:
1. I peed my pants in front of my husband when we were dating.

2. When coming back into the US from Canada, we got stopped at the border and were searched because we looked "suspicious."

3. My husband missed the birth of our middle child because he almost passed out and had to leave the room.

Marni said...

Okay, I REALLY want to know if Beth wet herself in front of her husband...

I think it's circus. The other two seem so like you ;-)

Here's mine:

1. I'm fluent in Spanish (which is why I occassionally leave little Spanish phrases in my blog comments)
2. I played basketball with Garth Brooks when he came to perform a concert at the college I attended
3. I bloodied my own nose with my knee during a great high kick at a cheerleading competition

jasonS said...

Hmmmm. I think it's the circus one too. Also if you read Peter's comment carefully, I believe he's calling you a slut... just something to think about.

So when do you reveal which is the correct answer?

The Fat Dietitian said...

I am going to guess that # 3 is a lie...

Here are mine:
1. As a child I played ponies with the Olsen twins.
2. I was on a float in the Rose Parade when I was 10.
3. My husband and I met in college.

Wendy said...

I'll be doing a post with the answers tomorrow (Wed.).

Billy - Ssshhh! Don't tell them!

Make sure you check out Helen's blog to see her truths and lie!

And Jason, stop trying to throw Peter under the bus. It's just not nice.

Helen said...

Peter's lie is #3. Katdish's lie is #3. (Watching him die was merely a fringe benefit of shooting her ex boyfriend) Candy's lie is #1 Beth's lie is #1 (She would have been so embarrassed, she would have answered the phone "No habla Ingles!" from then on...) Marni's lie is #1, and TFD is lying about #1.

If you people need help finding me, I'll be over here.

Wendy said...

Okay, here are my guesses:

Peter P: I think #3 is the lie.

katdish: #3. She doesn't need a reason to shoot someone.

Candy: Please let #2 be true and let there be pictures! I'm guessing #3 is a lie.

Beth: I think it's #3. Why? Because he probably did it with the first kiddo's birth.

Marni: I'm guessing #1. Do you get by with just enough restaurant Spanish to get you into trouble?

The Fat Dietitian: I think #3 is the lie. Don't really know why, but there it is.

Candace Jean July 16 said...

When/how do we all confess? And what did you say the prize was?

Marni said...

You people don't think I'm fluent in Spanish??? Mis sentimientos son tan herido! :(

Wendy said...

Poor Marni. ¿Hacele sobrevive?
