Liars Club, Burlington, Burlington, Wis. 53105
. . . Founded around 1930. According to founder and 1st president Otis Hulett, "We're probably the only honest men on the face of the earth. You see, everybody is a bit of a liar, but we are the only ones who admit it." Each year approximately 97,000 worldwide liars submit letters to the club in the hope of winning the title of World Champion Liar. "Sometimes," says Hulett, "we figure we've seen the last of some stories. But they come back and haunt us year in year out--like the one about the man who had one bullet left in his gun, and 2 bears acomin' at him. So he shot his gun at a knife which cut the bullet in 2. And each half killed a bear."
