A gentle challenge or rejoinder to a fanciful or bullshit
statement or a tall tale
. An idiom
you use to tell someone that you do not believe what they have just said.
Derived from the game where you ask someone to "pull my finger
" and fart
, then ask them to "pull my other finger
" or "now pull the other one".
-- Example 1 --
"Yeah I drank about 20 beers but the cop couldn't tell I was drunk and let me go."
"Pull the other one. I don't think so."
-- Example 2 --
From Scene 1 of Monty Python
and the Holy Grail:
clop clop clop
Halt! Who goes there?
It is I, Arthur, son of Uther Pendragon, from the castle of Camelot. King of the Britons, defeater of the Saxons, Sovereign of all England!
Pull the other one!
I am,... and this is my trusty servant Patsy. We have ridden the length and breadth of the land in search of knights who will join me in my court at Camelot.
I must speak with your lord and master.
What? Ridden on a horse?
You're using coconuts!
