Even the color of a lie must be made “white” to distract from its potential for harm or rather its deceptive nature.

I guess regular lies must be big and black then, in all humor?

A lie is a lie where truth is necessary. A lie is deception, and if it must have a color, then to me a lie is white. White but not benign.

Whiteness portrayed as a universal symbol for innocence, purity, divinity, and goodness is the true deception, therefore a lie. A bleached white lie.
