RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. A club in Wisconsin is asking people to lie early and lie often. The Burlington Liar's Club is holding its 80th annual World Champion Lie Contest. Fibbers can submit entries on the club's Web site until December 15th. Past champion whoppers have been mostly innocent, like: We had so much rain there were puddles in our lake and I have a car that's so old, the license bureau now issues upper and lower plates for it.

It's MORNING EDITION.
