(GrasstopsUSA.com) -- The 2009 film "The Invention of Lying" is set in a world where everyone tells the absolute truth. One day, the protagonist accidentally discovers that you can tell people something that's palpably false and, no matter how outrageous or absurd, they'll believe you, because they can't comprehend the idea of lying.
To test his new insight, he has a conversation with a couple of his buddies in a bar, with hilarious results. Protagonist (who's clearly Caucasian): "I'm black." First friend: "Great, I always wanted a black friend." Protagonist: "I'm an Eskimo." Second friend: "I didn't know they had those, black Eskimos." Protagonist; "I invented the bicycle." First friend: "If I buy one, can I get a discount?"
