Assunto:  Do you tell lies?
 
Mensagem: 

I have heard Porky Pies.

Apparently it is used in the UK and Australia.

I found this on the net:

 

Pork Pies (also porkies)   
Lies (Cockney rhyming slang)

Example:

The judge said my defence was nothing but a load of porkies and sent me down for seven.
