wearing a lie? holding up a lie I googled and see there are people using these two verbs for the word lie. I know the usage is not common, maybe 'holding up a lie' in particular, but I would like to know what does these two phrases means? What are the differences? Or what images or meaning you are thinking of reading these two?

I had to google both of these myself - i have never heard of "wearing a lie" - I have heard of" living a lie" - which I think what you are getting at when you say "wearing a lie" - Which "living a Lie" would also mean the same thing as "holding up a lie". My interpretation -a person knows the truth and continues to perpetuate the untruth. hope that helps
