    How about the woman who pretended to be Anastasia

      One “Anastasia” was shorter than the original, the other went on about vodka parties when the Romanovs only drank champagne.
      But what about Lenin? He tricked the electorate with the offer of “Peace” but his aim was to start a civil war in Russia (23m dead) then launch a `suicidal` attack on Germany – which collapsed in Poland.

    Ripley is not a liar, because he gives you a freedom to believe or not

      We already have that freedom in all situations. I lie is not any less of a lie because of our ability to not believe it.

      I always thought the ‘believe it or not’ was more or less urban legends that were unknown whether they were true or not. Not necessarily intentional lying (I do see your point, since the phrase ‘believe it or not’ is still giving implication it might not be true and that changes it considerably).

    Kim Jong Il said that he was a god, that he was the fastest man on the planet and that he had a perfect game of golf and he did not make the list!!!

    I’m sure others can think of more 🙂

    Raoul Wallenberg lies saved thousands of lives and he paid for this with his own life. I would say he is a better liar (from all points of view) then a man who lied to steal money

      Blimey, I`d forgot about Obama.. “I`ll shut Guantanomo Bay..” “I`ll punish the guys who did waterboarding..” And my personal favourite, “Colonel Gaddafi (Obama`s old mate) has rape gangs.” Then again, there`s George Bush Senior. “Saddam Hussein had babies ripped out of incubators,” and George W Bush and Tony Blair. “Saddam Hussein has Weapons of Mass Destruction and is allies with Osama Bin Laden.” “Saddam Hussein has Weapons of Mass Destruction which can hit the UK in 45 minutes. We`re 45 minutes away from doom.” Why people lie like this, I`ll never know..

    Hieronymus Carl Friedrich von Münchhausen
    Why he is not on the list?
    Did you hear about medical term “Syndroma Münchhausen”!?

    I am flattered to be among the Top Ten Liars. But doesn’t General Bush really take the cake? (Albeit conspicuous by his absence from the list) His troops invaded Iraq to destroy Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction, and they couldn’t even find Waldo! Then again, Daddy Bush said “read my lips.” We all did and all we got was a whiff of butt odor. BTW I do play the drums (Radio City Music Hall Orchestra in 1978) but the photo posted is that of the OTHER Alan Abel. We look alike, talk alike, walk alike and play alike. So, whoever is in charge of this web site, please select a photo from my website (http://www.alanabel.com). Thanks again for the honor. I think.

    Barack “You can keep your health care” Obama?

      Oh Mike! It isn`t for Obama. Do you really want to deprive poor people of health care? Is this how mean wealthy Americans have become? Shame on you.

    Lenin was a five-star liar. He offered peace, but what he meant was that he was gong to start a civil war in Russia and then launched “suicidal” attack on Germany.
    He offered land but that was to be taken from the peasants and given to the commissars. Russian agriculture has not yet recovered from this “collectivization”.
    He denied he had ever received subsidies from the Germans but German records (with hundreds of telegrams, backed by remarks made in Ludendorff`s memoirs) show he was given 86 million gold marks.

    No such list like this compiled in this century should exist without Obama & Hillary not be on it for said list to be afforded full credibility!
