Can Bodybuilders Really Not Lift a 112-lb. Woman on 'Penn & Teller Tell a Lie'? (VIDEO)

'Penn & Teller Tell a Lie'Penn & Teller are back with a new show, and this time they're lying to us. 'Penn & Teller Tell a Lie' (Wed., 10PM ET on Discovery) finds the pair sharing with us seven surprising truths about the world. Six of them are absolutely true, while one is a lie.

They don't reveal the lie until the end, leaving you to question each story as it unfolds. Possibly the craziest one from the premiere was the claim that a 112-lb. woman could make it to where even bodybuilders couldn't lift her up.

We watched as one guy picked her up with ease. Then, on the second try, he couldn't budge her an inch. Is this really possible?

Turns out it was absolutely true. She simply shifted her center of gravity towards her backside, and proved unable to lift. The story that wound up being a lie was that you can't get a tiger to back off by punching it in the back of the throat.

Thank goodness they told us not to try any of these stunts at home. That could have gone terribly wrong for someone!
