    Proverbs:
    1. Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies / Ask no questions, and you will be told no lies
    Example:
    You know I can't discuss it. Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies.
    2. Half the truth is often a whole lie.
    3. A bad excuse is better than none.

    Expressions with 'excuse':
    1. Excuse me!
    2. Nothing can excuse such neglect.
    3. to accept an excuse
    4. excuse for being late (reason)

    Expressions with 'lie':
    1. to tell a lie
    2. I know he is lying.
    3. She lied to her husband.

    I hope it was helpful.

    telling a lie= telling a fib/telling a porky
    a lie= bulldust
