House of lies is a fad that originated from The Simpsons episode Last Exit to Springfield, in which a dentist asks Ralph Wiggum how many times he brushes his teeth a day. Ralph replies "Three times a day, sir", and the dentist snaps back "Why must you turn my dentistry into a house of lies?!". It it used in cases when a user claims to have seen or done something barely believable. e.g.

"OMG, I just saw Angelie Jolie at a bus station!!"
"Why must you turn this topic into a house of lies?!"

It also the name of GameFAQs board 815, House of Lies.
