Should I be honest during my job interview?

Should I be honest during my job interview?
 They say honesty is the best policy.

This short exchange during a job interview illustrates why honesty might not always be the best idea:

Potential employer: Let me ask you this: What’s your greatest weakness?

You: I’d have to say my greatest weakness is honesty.

Potential employer: That’s interesting. You know, I don’t think honesty is a weakness.

You: Really? Well, I don’t give a rat’s ass what you think.
