To say "no the jeans do not make look fat" is not lying. For even if the person wearing the jeans is fat it is not the jeans that make them appear fat. It is the fat! Not a lie just a matter of interpretation.   ;D

A shrewd buyer of horses always checks the animal's teeth before making a purchase.  If someone was to give you a horse (or any gift), it would be rude to look it over as if you expected it to be flawed.  Accept a gift graciously.
