There are some things that happen to us in our lives that are so unbelievable, it doesn’t feel like we can even share the story with anyone. So when writer Aidan Moher asked their followers to “tell me a story about yourself the sounds like a lie but is absolutely true,” the dam burst. Twitter was flooded with extraordinary tales that all definitely sound like lies.
In theory, they could be, but what’s fun about the exercise is how much wild stuff can really happen in this life if you manage to stick around long enough.
Tell me a story about yourself the sounds like a lie but is absolutely true.

Even Moher was impressed, saying that they intended to impress everyone with their story, which was this:
My contribution to this thread was going to be that I once spent the night in a hostel across the street from the Queen of England in Ljubljana, Slovenia, with pics to prove it, but you all have… greatly surpassed this tame story.
As they admit, it really can’t hold a candle to some of the stuff people on Twitter have gotten up to.

Scroll through for some of the wildest stories, some of which will have you wondering if you need to get out there and start living bigger immediately. The rest will just have you asking follow up questions, like, “Is that TRUE?”
A friend suggested we go out to help me get over my breakup. While I was talking/flirting with a guy, she came over, straddled him, lifted her dress, took his dick out and started fucking him all within seconds. So I just quietly left and walked home. https://t.co/5ohmOx0Ryg

In college a friend found an ID of a dude over 21 who looked just like me. I used it like a charm for months. Then I went to a club and a bouncer starting asking me what’s my address and birthday and shit. I finally said “dude it’s me” and he replied “no dude, it’s ME”. It was. https://t.co/gUW03MxUc3

He let me in but took his drivers license back. Our name was Neil.

i had my eight remaining baby teeth yanked as a sophomore in high school
at one point, the oral surgeon handed me (high on laughing gas) the pliers, telling me any i pulled out myself we wouldn’t be charged for
so I pulled out two of my own, saving my parents a nifty $130 https://t.co/tdoeEZmuT8

My high school had to evacuate because of a bomb threat written on a bathroom wall. Turns out it was written by our school’s security guard, whose handwriting incriminated him when his write up of the incident was compared to the threat itself. #LivinLikeLarry https://t.co/muqrMZBtKt

At my great uncle’s funeral, the priest giving the eulogy’s pants fell down. He stood there in his tighty whiteys, the whole room in utter disbelief, until someone ran on stage and pulled them up for him. https://t.co/P1aZal3H4X

Once accidentally kidnapped a drunk man who was trying to get into his own home. Saw him slumped by the road, coaxed him into the cab to ‘take him home safely’ and ignored his slurry protests. Some 30 mins of confusing directions later and we… end up at exactly the same place. https://t.co/cwj43Fig8g

When Taylor Swift was like 12, her father asked me to build her a website (our fathers were friends and I had learned web design). I blew him off because I was busy and while talented for her age, this Taylor girl wasn’t going anywhere… https://t.co/YkdIuNhcnX
