A lie, so bold in nature and so obvious, it defies logic as to why it was told. A lie so huge and so transparent, not only does the one being told know it is a lie, but the liar knows it. And the person being told the lie knows the liar knows he/she knows and so on ad infinum. Based on the name Vladimir Putin, prime minister of Russia, in regards to his ability to purposely misspeak.
