"On Saturday I certainly don't wake up at 6 A.M., put on a Speedo, and go to swim practice."

Several Homestar Runner characters, most notably Strong Bad, have been known to lie blatantly to one another or to the audience, often in an attempt to persuade others of the veracity of a situation, when in fact the opposite is extremely obvious.
