My mother is taking a creative writing course and was asked to introduce herself.  She told the class that she was formerly a skydiving instructor and that she retired after injuring her wrists.  Everyone believed her.  The pudgy Irish court-reporter claiming to be a skydiving instructor.  I hope kids are still this gullible 40 years from now when I tell them about the time I arm-wrestled Bush to stop him from saying “nucular”.  Singlehandly won us the Civil War it did.
