Question of the Day

Jun 27, 2017

Yesterday we asked: People lie about all kinds of things. What is the number one movie people say they’ve seen but haven’t actually seen?

Answer: According to a study by LOVEFiLM, “The Godfather” tops the list of classic movies people lie about having seen. Somewhat related: Many astute readers pointed out that The internet insists Sinbad played a genie in a movie called, 'Shazam'; he didn't.

Congrats again to Dan Rosenbaum, first to tweet the correct answer. Honorable mention to Kelly Phillips Erb, who asks the question on our minds, too: “Why would anyone lie about seeing a movie (other than as an alibi)?”

Your question of the day for today is…What’s the only insect with the ability to turn its head a full 180 degrees?
