Subject: I've heard "water is wet".

Often in the context of stuff like "Studies say [something everyone already knows]. And in other words, water is wet."

But yeah, this was wordplay based on the fact that a sufficiently cunning Slytherin could hypothetically get you to believe something against the evidence of your own eyes, hence not using "wouldn't trust them even if they said the sky was blue".

Incidentally, I've also heard "if they said the sky was blue, I'd still go out to check".
