Fibbing Friday Aug 27, 2021 – Friday Fun

Di and Frank take turns hosting Fibbing Friday. Di is up this week. It is always fun to stretch the creative muscles and fine tune our ability to discern between the truth and a lie.


1. Where will you find a pushme-pullyou?

In the hardware store. Located in the kitchen cabinet section.

2. What is meant by the term ‘chocolate box’?

This is where Cat Stevens stored his Buddah.

3. Who lived in the house made with gingerbread, cake and pastries?

Pretty sure it was Paul Hollywood.

4. Where will you find Mr Stay Puft?

He’s the final inspector at the pillow factory. No one wants a de-puffed pillow!

5. Where will you find The Hallelujah Mountains?

Just west of Hosannah Hills.

6. What did Gru intend to steal with the Shrink Ray?

Steve Carell’s voice box.

7. Going back a long way, what was ‘Baby’ in the 1938 film Bringing Up Baby?

This was Cary Grant’s code name for fiery redhead co-star Katharine Hepburn.

8. Who played the drums in The Muppets?

Peter Best. His manager thought it was his best shot for a comeback.

9. What magical instrument did Sparky play?

A recorder. Someone had to take pity on all the parents that listened to those when their children were in primary or grade school.

10. What did ‘Andy’ have waxed in The 40 Year Old Virgin?

His shower curtain. It was disgusting.

  1. Ha, loved these answers Maggie. I had a descant recorder in primary school, and was bought a treble recorder for Christmas as it turned out I had a good ear for music and my parents encouraged it. Piano was always my first choice though.

  2. You reminded me of Sparky’s Magic Piano. That (original version) scared me as a child, and I have been trying to forget it for the last 65 years! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

        1. I have listened to a few versions. Was it the synthesized voice that frightened you? Was it on an album that you heard it or the later cartoon version? I am assuming the 1947 album.

          1. Yes, the voice was spooky and unusual at the time. It was a vinyl album, probably the 1947 one, bought for me as a gift when I was 4 or 5 years old, around 1956.
