A Paradox of Lying

There were no lies before the advent of language, they say. What nonsense…

Does the zebra not lie when it sways in the grass? Does the flytrap not lie when with sweet scents it whispers, come hither?

Of course they do.

“I suppose you could construe camouflage as a lie.”

— Ron Swanson
