Pants On Fire…Politicians Need Not Apply

By  | April 11, 2018 | Filed under: Interesting Facts, News

During elections campaigns keen politicians dust off old promises for new presentations: same sins, different faces. Try as they might, however, politicians are not allowed to participate in the annual Burlington Liars Club Championship, open for amateur liars only; it’s not a lie; politicians may not partake.

The Liars Championship is held toward the end of the year but anytime is a good time to start practicing…


The Burlington Liars Club was founded in 1929 by newspaper reporter Otis Hulett. But that may also be a lie, as reported by the experts themselves, the Burlington Liars Club. Perhaps Hulett’s friendly rival and first president of the club, Mannel Hahn, was the founder.

If you have a tall tale to tell and you’re not a politician, mail your fib with the $1 entry fee to:
Burlington Liars’ Club, P.O. Box 156, Burlington, WI 53105, USA.
