“I’m dishonest. And a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. I mean honestly, it’s the honest ones you have to watch out for. Because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly... stupid.” (Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl, 2003)
When to use it Filling in your timesheet, expenses form or anything else where your relationship with the truth might find itself a little – just a little – bit stretched.
“Now, bring me that horizon!” (Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl, 2003)
When to use it When embarking on something new, something difficult, something you are, however, determined to kick arse at. Or when discussing Sheffield metal giants Bring Me The Horizon.

When to use it Signing a leaving card for someone you don’t know.
“Why is the rum always gone?” (Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, 2006)

“We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-coloured uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge, and I knew we’d get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.” (Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, 1998)
