Knife-like Wit, Forked Tongue

I like to arrange these pictures in a boy-girl-boy-girl pattern, but when there's color vs black & white to consider, I think aesthetics trumps gender sensitivity, so this time I wound up with boy-boy and girl-girl. Which actually sounds...kind of... Anyway, ponder the faces of our next four storytellers. Can they hide those lyin' eyes?

And I'd like to thank Lyin' Jon Levin for making history at Monday's show. Only one (1) (one!) member of the audience picked him out of the line-up. Which means I only had to give up one t-shirt. I owe you, Jon. Maybe I'll get you an "h" for your name. And thanks to Ned, Michelle and Greg for three great stories that were so unbelievably true.
