n. A lie that confesses a made-up flaw, used to protect the listener from a devastating truth. This type of lie is believable to the listener because it makes the liar look bad, but not nearly as bad as the truth would. Based on the TV character, Walter White, from "Breaking Bad".
Ex: I told my family a Walter White Lie when I said I gambled all of our money away. The truth is, I lost it all in a bad meth deal.

Ex: Ken told Jenny a Walter White Lie when he said cheated on her once when he was drunk. He really is a closeted homosexual and was only able to have sex with her if he fantasized about the Village People.
