Big Fat Lies

Details & Features

Book Description

The brilliant minds at mental_floss have entertained millions of trivia buffs with their unique magazine and publishing program. Now they’ve produced their first trivia card game. Each card contains two statements. One is true, the other is not. Can you spot the Big Fat Lie?

Here’s one from the Arts & Entertainment category:
A) The first name of actor Will Smith is short for “Willard.”
B) Rapper Dr. Dre was briefly enrolled in medical school before turning to a career in hip-hop.

Here’s another from the History & Geography category:
A) U.S. presidents John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe all died on July 4.
B) Authors Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley were both born on October 31.

If you guessed B for both, you’ve identified the Big Fat Lies! With 400 questions in a wide range of categories–everything from Science and History to Popular Culture–Big Fat Lies! is perfect for cocktail parties with friends and family fun in the car.

The editors of MENTAL_FLOSS are responsible for the best-selling books Condensed Knowledge and Forbidden Knowledge.
