If someone says that something is the naked truth, it is the complete absolute truth. Often about something unpleasant. The naked truth is simply the truth without hiding anything, covering anything, or exaggerating anything. It's just the truth. Okay. Let's continue. The origin is believed to come from an old fable called "Truth and Falsehood Went Bathing" which appeared in the 1500s. According to the story, they both went bathing together. However Falsehood completed his bathing first and he decided to steal and wear Truth's clothes. However Truth you know, being an honest guy, truth was unwilling to put on False ... Falsehoods clothes. So he didn't want to steal Falsehoods clothes and left naked. Well he had no other choice. Thus we have the naked truth. So that's where the phrase and the origin is supposed to come from. There's another one that Shakespeare used too, So he might have helped popularize it a little bit more. Shakespeare also used this phrase in his play "Love's Labor Lost" in 1590. Also to mean like the complete truth or the total truth. All right. And we have three examples here. So example number one. Whether you want to believe it or not. It is simply the naked truth. Okay. It's one way we use it. Or number two just tell me the naked truth. No matter what the consequences. Okay. Or number three here. People are sick of the lies. They just want the naked truth. Okay. I hope you got it. I hope it is clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
