The top fibs we pass on.

A reader's Digest poll found parents tell the same fibs to their children that their parents told them.

The top five popular fibs are: Father Christmas; the Tooth Fairy; crusts make your hair curl; carrots make you see in the dark; If the wind changes, your face will stay like that.

I particularly liked: "When the man in the ice cream van plays his music, he's run out of ice cream."

Which is clever, financially astute and creates a wave of sympathy for the poor ice cream man who has no product left to sell.

And at this time of night in this weather. So why is he stopping outside our front door then, dad? Dad?
