It won't be long until Kim Kardashian gives birth to the daughter she's having with Kanye West, but that day has not arrived yet. But don't tell that to the people interviewed for Jimmy Kimmel's popular segment "Lie Witness News" that asks trick questions of men and women on the street—usually Hollywood Boulevard, although the best segment thus far took place at Coachella.

Kimmel asked people where they were when they heard Kardashian gave birth (because it's totally going to be like the "Where were you when Kennedy was shot?" of our times). And folks responded with all sorts of plausible answers, like that they found out on Twitter or E! News.

The interviews asked went on to ask people what they thought about her (perhaps equally plausible-sounding) birthing practices, like going into labor in Cristal, marketing the placenta as a perfume and having one of the Kardashian sisters bite off the umbilical cord. Hey, it could happen!
