What if no one ever lied, and all sources were credible? Take fairytales and fables, for instance. They would be shorter, yes, but not nearly as entertaining. I think it's safe to say it's a good thing there weren't any horses in these stories.
Chicken Little: The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
Tree: No. I just dropped an apple on your head.
Chicken Little: Oh. Okay. Never mind.
The Boy Who Cried Wolf
The Boy: Wolf! There's a wolf!
Villager 1: Oh yeah? Why should I listen to you?
The Boy: He's right behind you.
Villager 1 (turning around and seeing a wolf): Oh. Well then. That's good enough for me. RUN!
Hansel and Gretel
Hansel: Look! It's a candy house! Let's go in.
Gretel: I don't think so. I paid attention in science class. The first time it rains, this house is a goner. We need to find something much more structurally sound.
Little Red Ridding Hood
Little Red: Oh my, grandma! What big eyes you have!
Wolf: All the better to hear you with.
Little Red: Do you really think I'm that stupid? I can identify my own species, thank you very much. Besides, I just talked to the lumberjack. He saw you stuff my poor old grandma in the closet.
The Three Little Pigs
Pig 1: I'm going to build my house out of straw.
Pig 3: Uh... brother, are you dense? No, wait. Clearly you are not dense. If you were dense, you would know what bricks are because your head would be full of them. Use bricks. They're the latest in building technology.
Pig 1: Okay. You've always been better at this stuff than I was.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
Goldilocks: Oh, what a cute little chair. I think I'll sit down. Wait What does this tag on the chair say? "Weight limit: 30 lbs." Never mind. I'll be leaving now.
The Gingerbread Man
Gingerbread Man: Run, run, run, as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!
Alligator: Hop on me. I'll take you across the river so you don't get wet.
Gingerbread Man: Thanks!
Grandma: Uh... Gingerbread man? That's an alligator.
Gingerbread Man: I've changed my mind, mister. Thanks, but no thanks.
