If we are to believe the strangers on the internet then here are some of the most insane, unbelievable true stories that sound like complete lies.
It all began when Twitter user, Walter Thunderfläsk asked his followers:
Tell me something that sounds like a lie, but is actually genuinely true… I’ll begin. An ungrateful deer once spat in my mouth.
The responses came flooding in and most of them are so outlandish and incredible that you will struggle to believe they actually happened. Here is a selection of our favourite true but sound-like-a-lie stories from today…
1) Where do we begin?!
I had a year where I was almost shot twice, had a near-fatal car accident, fell pregnant, and found out that the reason my best friend didn’t like having her photo taken was because she was on the FBI’s most wanted list. Bank robber. It was a big year 🤣— 💧MelJustMel (@Pretty_Flash) July 9, 2019
2) Oh Sherry, pick better men girl
Ted Bundy decided I wasn’t worth killing. He had taken me to a construction site and began to kiss me and his hands went to my throat. He heard voices of workers and then drove me home. This was in 1974.— Sherry “Not His Type” Deatrick (@sherrydeatrick) July 9, 2019
It was bizarre. I was walking home from class, mad at my boyfriend, who was an asshole. Bundy must have picked up on that so he pulled over and claimed he was a teacher at my school, Indiana U Southeast. So, stupidly, I got in his VW bug. He said, “let’s stop for some beers.”.— Sherry “Not His Type” Deatrick (@sherrydeatrick) July 9, 2019
🤪i GUESS THAT’S TRUE! WELL, HE PAID ME BACK BY TRYING TO STAB ME NEXT SEMESTER. LOL— Sherry “Not His Type” Deatrick (@sherrydeatrick) July 9, 2019
He wasn’t serious. Just brandished it at me.— Sherry “Not His Type” Deatrick (@sherrydeatrick) July 9, 2019
3) A chance encounter
2/2 the hole in his dash he explained he’d had a really cool skull lighter but had burned himself one day whilst lighting a durrie while driving and it had fallen out of his open window….so I dug into my backpack….Voila.— 3GCT (@BarrysChins) July 9, 2019
4) Sounds cosy right?
A mountain lion fell asleep on my feet. I was camping, awake but laying down in the tent, and it decided to lie down for a rest against the outside of the tent— Sela Shiloni (@selashiloni) July 10, 2019
5) You should probably seek medical help

6) Too soon…
.The current POTUS is illegitimate, having been installed by the Russian government despite the fact that 74,139,212 Americans voted against him. The POTUS is a malignant narcissistic sociopath & poses an ongoing existential threat to the world.— CherokeeNative (@CherokeeNative3) July 9, 2019
7) A story for the Grandkids
My husband had a best friend for a while in high school. She was my best friend for most of college. The schools are roughly 3,000 away. The best friend did not introduce us.— SparkleTea (@SparkleTea) July 10, 2019
Both my husband and I knew exactly who we were, but only after we told each other our nicknames.
8) What I would pay to have seen that
The little one must’ve realized it wouldn’t outrun the big squirrel so it stopped running, turned to face the bigger squirrel, and slapped it across the face so hard the bigger squirrel flipped backwards. Bad mood over! But no one believes it actually happened!— Sir Judgy Walden, II (@JudgyWalden) July 8, 2019
9) Give that girl a medal
My puppy jumped up and broke my nose on Christmas morning while I held a whole banoffee pie in each hand and I didn’t drop either.— An Gealbhan Ard (@MimiVonPeach) July 9, 2019
10) Can this be real?
..The clerk said that I had already checked in and was in my room! It was her! I’ll never stop wondering “How in this world?” .— TREE TREE B. (@TreeTreeB) July 9, 2019
11) Here’s my own unbelievable true story – I outran a bear
The camp I was working at had received reports of a black bear sighting inside the campground a few nights earlier. Then very late one evening after returning from the nearby town, myself and my friend were walking back to camp in the pitch black when we heard the loudest thud from a tree no more than 3/4 meters from us. It unmistakenly sounded as if a large animal had fallen from it and then there was loud rustling.
It took us all of a split-second to decide to sprint the hell outta there. I’m glad we didn’t stick around to find out what definitely made that loud noise, but we feel pretty certain that it was a bear or some other large tree-climbing animal who decided that we weren’t worth the chase. Or as I like to put it cause it makes us sound impressive, we ‘outran it’.
