To pull someone’s leg

I remember a day, as I was a child, eating at home with my family… My dad told my younger (and only) sister something strange and then said: “c’mon, I’m just pulling your leg!”. So what did she do next? Well, she looked under the table because she didn’t feel any pulling. And we all laughed!! And here’s why (in case you don’t know this English idiom):

To pull someone’s leg = to tell someone something that is not true as a way of joking with the person, for example: Stop pulling my leg– you didn’t have lunch with Madonna!

(Definition of pull someone’s leg from the Cambridge Academic Content Dictionary © Cambridge University Press)
