Don't ask me no questions, and I won't tell you no lies - Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Don't Ask Me No Questions"

Basically, it's a cliche that has been around a long, long time. It's a way of telling someone, "If you ask me this question, I'll have to lie to you because you won't like the truthful answer".

Or, you could use the Homer Simpson Approach:

Second Funkiest White Man in America
