"Just kidding" is a phrase used by a large variety of people, from insecure high school girls to master pranksters after a successful hoax. Its usage and meaning can vary subtly, but the phrase generally is used to indicate that what you just said is a lie or a joke. Also, if you have ever said the phrase, God automatically takes 5 years off your life.
The phrase "just kidding" is generally believed to have been invented by Oscar Wilde as a baby. The first words ever spoken by the child were "just kidding," which were heard by FBI agents. Convinced that the baby was a genius, they performed numerous tests on it, genetically modified it, and have complete control over Oscar Wilde via a radio in their head.
Naw, I'm just kidding about all that, Oscar Wilde.
Here are some examples of the usage of the phrase:
“Dude, I borrowed your dad's Porsche for a ride, I kinda banged it up... Um, uh... Just kidding!”
“Where's Fred, you ask? Oh, I thought I saw him down in the cafeteria... OH NEVERMIND, he's in the bathroom, JUST KIDDING!!”
“Al Gore has won the presidency. Just kidding!!”
“Watch where you swings at me. Just kidding, thanks!”
By the way, I wasn't kidding when I said God takes 5 years off your life for saying the phrase.
