Soup or Salad
This joke probably wasn’t said to an actual waitress in an actual restaurant. But from us to you, please don’t ever actually do this to someone in the service industry. Even if they laugh, we promise you that all you’ve done is hurt them.
It’s hard enough to pretend you like customers as it is; the last thing you need to do is hit them with a terrible dad joke that they have to pretend to like. Be aware, and have a heart. They’ll like you a little more that way.
In Your Face
The thing about dad jokes that are just a play on words is that pronunciation and accent may ruin the whole thing. Depending on how you say something, the joke might stop making any sense at all.
But hey, as long as someone gets it, right? If you’re wondering how else someone could say jalapeño, consider this: if you said it in a way that makes this joke sensible, you’re probably the one saying it wrong in the first place.
Play on Words
Many dad jokes are totally dependent on wordplay, but the problem with jokes like that is the fact that they only work if someone uses a specific pronunciation. But, if you’re the one telling the joke, you can always ensure that it’s said right.
With this joke, you should be able to understand what is being hinted at quite easily. Indeed, what would a hybrid of all of these animals be called? Most of us would probably have no idea what the right answer would be.
The Most Basic of Jokes
Some puns require you to jump through a few hoops in order for them to make sense. Other puns, not so much. In fact, anyone who’s unable to get this joke about cells and cell phones has a serious problem. But hey, some dad jokes are simplistic.
Is a dad joke better or worse if it’s simple? Are you more likely to groan when you hear such a joke, or would you prefer a short and sweet one? In our opinion, there are terrible dad jokes on both ends of the spectrum.
An Old Classic
We guarantee that you’ve heard this terrible joke involving Kleenex or tissue at least once in your life. We don’t know who first came up with this joke, but we do know that it’s been around for a pretty long time.
It’s at least been ten years since we first heard it, and let’s be honest, it’s just as terrible now as it was back then. It’s like an entry-level dad joke. Everyone knows it, but everyone should move beyond it at some point.
That’s Not My Name!
We all know that dad jokes love to take things literally. Whether or not it’s actually funny tends to be up to the individual. This joke about bookmarks exists in the same vein as “hi, I’m Dad” type jokes.
Another classic, to be sure, but really, being a classic just means that something is old. It doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s good. Some people are going to like it, and some people are going to think it’s average or just bad.
Greecian Fries Doesn’t Have the Same Ring to It
Greece and grease sound the same. That is the crux of this entire joke. Admittedly, the play on words is kind of amusing and very fitting for a dad joke. That said, hopefully, everyone knows that French Fries were actually made in America.
Of course, facts aren’t an important part of jokes, but you just know that someone who has that knowledge would go out of their way to mention this. People who know the truth often can’t help but correct others when it’s relevant.
At this point, we have to wonder how many dad jokes aren’t actually reliant on wordplay. Are all wordplay jokes automatically dad jokes now? Is it the level of cleverness that sets apart a dad joke from other jokes? This joke actually is pretty clever.
Speaking of which, remember when you may have actually been upset at the notion of taking a nap? It’s kind of funny, because these days, most of us would never frown on the chance to take a nap if we could manage it.
The Pie Rates of the Caribbean
Okay, we have to admit, this joke is actually really funny, and almost too clever to really be considered a true dad joke. Of course, it’s still pretty hammy, but it actually got a chortle out of us instead of a cringe. That’s rare for a dad joke!
We suppose this is an ideal dad joke, with its ability to be so bad that it almost comes full circle back to being good. Those are the best types of dad jokes because even if you acknowledge that they’re corny, you can’t really hate them.
Just Ice, Just Water
If you put water below freezing point, then it’s just ice. But if you put it above that temperature, it’s just water. Is this even a joke, or is it actually just a statement about temperature and physics? Maybe a little bit of both.
This joke is definitely more cringe-worthy than the last one: it’s a joke no self-respecting person would make, but then again, are dads really self-respecting when it comes to humor? We guess that comes with age too.
Knights of the Round Table
Ah, math jokes. They aren’t necessarily dad jokes, but notice how they’re pretty much all just as corny as dad jokes are. At the very least, both types of jokes are cousins to one another.
Why does this joke in particular remind us of those terrible math worksheets we had to do in elementary school? The ones that always tried to make math seem more fun than it actually is? Talk about bad memories.
The Silent P
English is an odd language that has a lot of silent letters in it. When looking for great examples of this phenomenon, pterodactyl is a great choice, because a lot of people know about it. That makes it perfect for a joke about silent Ps.
Some dad jokes are inherently low-brow, and this is definitely one of them. But we suppose there’s nothing actually wrong with that. Some people frown on dirty humor, but this is low-level kid stuff; it’s not really vulgar.
Wetting Your Plants
Most people don’t actually like spring since it heralds the arrival of allergies and whatnot, but at the same time, it at least opens the way for some really corny dad jokes. Naturally, that includes this one about wetting plants.
We don’t think anyone could miss the implication being made here. It’s kind of kid humor, but some dad jokes just tend to swing that way. Besides, we’re sure plenty of adults would still find it funny.
No, That Sounds Gross
How many dad jokes require you to take something literally even though you know it wasn’t meant that way? Definitely a lot of them, and that includes this joke about putting milk in a bag.
We doubt the cashier would find this very funny. If anything, they would probably just look at you like you’re crazy, with a stone-cold poker face. Can you blame them, though? They deal with enough crap on a daily basis as it is.
It Most Certainly Is
We’ve hit the point where just stating the truth is in and of itself a dad joke, as long as you word it correctly. If you’ve never seen the flag of Switzerland before, it is, in fact, a giant plus sign.
Of course, you could argue that this is actually a bad aspect of Switzerland if you thought the design was kind of boring. Then again, most flag designs aren’t actually that unique, if you start looking around the world at all of them.
As Opposed to Three Tired
If you want to be a nerd about it, this is one of those dad jokes you can pretend isn’t even a joke. Sure, it’s supposed to be a pun, but it’s also just the actual truth if you think about it. Bikes can’t stand up on their own because they have two tires.
Well, maybe if the two tires were situated differently it wouldn’t matter, but with how bikes are designed, it does. If you ever want to counter a bad dad joke, just get really realistic with it and kill the mood.
Outstanding in Its Field
We’re not sure what actually draws the line between a bad dad joke and a dad joke that is so bad it’s actually good. But in our opinion, this joke about cows is the latter, somehow. It’s hard to say why, exactly, but that’s just the feeling we get.
We suppose the difference is whether or not you cringe and chuckle or just cringe. But then, everyone has a different sense of humor, so it’s not like even that is universal, is it?
A Couple of Days Off
If there’s going to be a joke about calendars, dad joke or not, we all know that it’s going to involve days, dates, or something similar. Naturally, that happens to be the case with this dad joke.
More importantly, we have to wonder if a calendar factory is actually a thing. Like, where are calendars made? Surely there aren’t entire factories dedicated to making something like that, right? After all, how many people even use calendars these days?
The Laughing Octopus
There are actually more animals out there capable of laughing than you might realize. However, we’re fairly certain that an octopus doesn’t fall into that category. The idea of such a creature laughing is actually kind of disturbing.
On the other hand, The Laughing Octopus sounds like it would be a really good name for a store or a seafood restaurant. We wouldn’t be surprised if there was already an establishment with that name somewhere out there.
When an animal has a name that sounds a lot like other ordinary words, you know for a fact that it’s going to get a relevant pun at some point. We’re sure there’ve been dozens, if not hundreds, of jokes about bison and “bye, son” over the years.
After all, you can’t help but hear it, so it’s no wonder it’s become such a popular joke. That said, most of us have the restraint to avoid making such terrible jokes. Unfortunately, dads rarely possess that restraint.
Is He Though?
Shellfish and selfish sound very similar, and thus is the root of many jokes about the selfish nature of various types of shellfish. We’re going to be honest, we weren’t sure if crabs were actually shellfish or crustaceans, but it turns out they’re both.
It just seems weird to refer to something that doesn’t have fins as a fish. Why can’t we just refer to crabs as delicious? That’s more than accurate enough, isn’t it?
Lean Beef and Ground Beef
We don’t know why cows are the butt of so many jokes, but they certainly seem to be. That said, we actually think this dad joke about cows and beef is pretty clever, and we can’t bring ourselves to dislike it.
But if you have a word for a cow with two legs and a word for cows with no legs, what would you call a cow with three legs? Maybe they would also be lean beef? Or just unhappy beef, probably.
Because English is funny like that, asking if you got a haircut could be interpreted as asking if someone got one singular hair cut instead of their collective “hair.” Of course, English speakers usually know what the purpose of this question is.
But hey, if you wanted to apply logic and reason, you wouldn’t have dad jokes in the first place, right? You generally have to get pretty ridiculous to make dad jokes work, and this is no exception.
“I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!” is a phrase most of us just heard in our heads right now, in the exact tone of voice it was used for all of those Life Alert commercials. But if you had the same commercial for horses, what would be said?
Well, this terrible dad joke has answered that question for you. We’re sure that was something you were just dying to know ever since you first watched those commercials, so you’re welcome.
Why So Loud?
Unsurprisingly, our pets are often the subject of jokes (both good and bad ones) — after all, those little fluff balls are already pretty funny on their own, so it’s only natural to add to that. This dad joke, though, decided that combining music and pets would be even funnier for some reason.
Sure, trumpets are pretty loud. But are they really the loudest thing you can get? Have you ever heard a large dog bark? That sound carries across the world! Plus, when it comes to instruments, drums are a lot better at making tons of annoying noise.
Boing, Boing, Boing
For those who don’t know, a 747 is a type of airliner that anyone who has flown before has probably ridden. It was manufactured by the company Boeing; hence this joke about the noise a 747 makes when it bounces.
In real life, you’d better hope your 747 doesn’t make that noise. In fact, you’d better hope the plane doesn’t bounce in the first place because that’s usually not a good sign. At worst, it means that it was one tough landing.
How to Deter Gents
Remember, not terribly long ago, when eating Tide pods was a popular thing to do online? Yeah, we don’t know why anyone thought putting toxic stuff in your mouth was a good idea. But hey, some people are just pretty dumb.
The joke is a funny play on words, but at the same time, it’s actually just true. We don’t recall nearly as many women participating in that trend as we do men. And people wonder why women tend to live longer…
An Intense Dad Joke
We have to wonder if a typical idea of a circus actually even exists in the real world now. Are there actually physical circuses you can go to that involve the big striped tents and all that? Either way, a fire in one of those would be bad.
And, of course, it would be in-tents, so to speak. Though if the tent caught on fire, it would be out of tents at some point too. And then it would just be everywhere.
A Long Way
If you don’t do much in the way of special exercises, you may not even know what a lunge is. Well, simply put, it involves taking really big steps and all that. So, if you were doing a lunge, you could say that it is a big step forward.
That’s the joke in its entirety. Sorry that you had to read it twice, but a joke isn’t any good at all if you don’t get it, so we wanted to be extra sure everyone knew what was up.
A Hole in One
We’re fairly certain that the only reason golf is popular is that a bunch of dads get into it after they hit a certain age. Like, how many young people play golf? We know that some do, but there definitely aren’t that many.
But most everyone knows what a hole-in-one is, so we can all get this joke, at the very least. This is definitely a dad joke more on the cringe side of things, but at the very least, it’s not the worst joke we’ve ever heard.
A Log of My Jokes
The stereotypical idea of a lumberjack probably doesn’t even exist anymore, but we can still provide jokes about it. Lumberjacks make logs, and if you keep a record of things, that’s also called a log. Hence, this joke.
Why is this one less cringe than the one before it? We’re not sure. Every person has to come up with their own definition for bad and so bad they’re good dad jokes. What do you think about this one?
It Really Is Terrible
At least this joke acknowledges that it’s terrible in its own punchline. Most jokes told by a dad tend to be less than self-aware, and they act as though they’re actually funny. This one at least has some self-respect.
That doesn’t really make it a better joke, but we at least have to respect it for that. You almost can’t even get mad at a bad joke that acknowledges that it’s bad. After all, it was upfront about what it was offering.
Chicken Coop Versus Chicken Sedan
When it comes to cars, there’s often a bit of confusion for some people about the difference between a coupe and a sedan. Unfortunately, you have to know the difference if you want to actually get this joke. Basically, it comes down to the number of doors.
Two doors for a coupe, and four for a sedan. Hence, this dad joke. We suppose it’s kind of clever, but even so, it still makes us roll our eyes. That’s kind of just how these things are.
Toastie or Grilled Cheese
This joke may fly over your head at first, depending on where you live. A cheese toastie is pretty much just a grilled cheese sandwich, but British. With that info in mind, we’re sure you can understand the logic behind this joke here.
It’s a pun, as these things often are. It’s not a super advanced pun either, so it mostly just makes us groan. But to each their own: we bet at least one of you reading this thought it was unironically hilarious.
Why Wouldn’t They?
Honestly, we’re not sure if this one should even count as a dad joke. It’s actually very clever. So clever, in fact, that if someone told it to you verbally, you’d be unlikely to get it right away. It’s almost a legitimate joke in our eyes.
Sure, it’s still a wordplay joke, but it’s a pretty advanced one, so we want to give it a pass in that regard. Still a dad joke, but definitely about as good as dad jokes tend to be.
Here’s another dad joke that requires some slight car knowledge to get. If you don’t know what a muffler is, it goes on the car’s exhaust pipe, hence this wordplay joke you’re about to look at. That’s really all you need to know about it.
It’s a pretty bad joke, obviously. A lot of dad jokes are. But this probably competes with the top spot for one of the worst. Maybe everyone should comment on their favorite and least favorite dad joke on this list.
True, He Did
If you can make a dad joke that’s a pun, good. If you can make one with wordplay, better. If you can make one that’s just a funny way of telling the truth, that’s arguably the best you can do as a dad. Top-tier dad energy, right there.
Lifesavers come in a lot of different flavors now, but we’re pretty sure they were originally mints and mints alone. So it’s quite accurate to say that the inventor of Lifesavers made a mint.
If you’ve ever been even remotely close to the countryside, then you probably know that hay bales tend to be cylindrical in shape. There’re a lot of reasons for that, but we aren’t going to go into them. After all, the joke only needs you to acknowledge that they aren’t squares.
And indeed, they’re not. So, we suppose you could say that cows don’t get a square meal when they’re eating hay. Can you imagine how weird it would look to see literal blocks of hay out in those fields, though?
Types of Cheese
There are many, many types of cheese out there, and most of them have pretty funny names. If you’re somewhat clever, you could probably find a way to make a joke out of those various cheese names, including provolone.
This joke isn’t really that clever, and it definitely errs more on the side of a shaken head and a roll of the eyes, but not every dad joke is up to par with the good stuff. Still, corny jokes have their place as well.
What’s a Fortnite?
Honestly, we wouldn’t be surprised if a bunch of people didn’t even get this joke simply because the word “fortnite” is synonymous with a game now, and is rarely ever used with its original meaning any longer.
Why is the game called Fortnite anyway? We’re pretty sure it doesn’t actually have anything to do with two weeks specifically. But we’ill admit, we don’t know the lore (if there is any), so maybe the name makes sense somewhere.
A Tiny Horse
If you’ve never seen a Clydesdale before, you may not know that they’re absolutely massive horses. Probably one of the largest horses out there. Seriously, they’re gargantuan. If you’ve seen one before, this joke should make plenty of sense to you.
Ironically though, almost any other horse is little compared to a Clydesdale, so it’s not like you would even need to mention a pony specifically for the joke to add up and make sense.
Well, He’s Not Wrong
Some dad jokes are just about telling the truth in a funny way. Such is the case here, where a dad claims he was named after this important historical figure. That may sound wrong on the surface, but it’s actually not, is it?
If you think about it, we were all named after him. Congratulations, we can now all make use of this dad joke whenever we want! How nice it is to have a joke that we can all use. It’s not just a dad joke — it’s our joke.
We promise that some of the jokes on this list are actually good. However, this is probably not one of them. Well, we didn’t want to spoil you right out of the gate. The joke makes sense, but man, does it make us cringe.
Speaking of college-aged vampires, it must be hard to wardrobe shop when you have existed for hundreds or thousands of years. After all, everyone sticks to their phases in young adulthood, so what do you do in the far future when your style no longer exists?
Working as Intended
As you probably know, dad jokes often carry themselves on their identity as puns. Some puns aren’t actually all that bad, and some are just outright terrible. Dad jokes tend to gravitate towards the latter, as we can see with this joke about Velcro.
What is it about getting older that makes one’s sense of humor like this? It’s almost universal, so there has to be some secret to it. Somebody needs to get some scientists to investigate this ASAP.
If you can’t make a joke with a play on words, you can’t be a father, simple as that. It’s an absolutely mandatory skill to have, far more important than being able to take care of or protect your family. Otherwise, you couldn’t make bad dad jokes like this one.
The sad part is, some people probably wouldn’t even understand this joke right away. Some people might even have to repeat it several times. Hopefully, you aren’t one of those people. If you are, we’re sorry.
40+ Screenshots of People Lying About Dumb Stuff That Will Give Anyone Secondhand Embarrassment
The internet is filled with nonsense. Some lies are blatant, and others make you second guess a little. These lies are often a cry for attention. However, some go a tad overboard just to sound “hip” or “cool.” Unfortunately, some people believe the lies others spread online. Let’s take a look at some of the nonsense people say to get the limelight. Fair warning, these samplers will make you cringe in secondhand embarrassment.
When You Have the Fastest 4G Network
There’s only so much nonsense a person can say. This one takes the cake. With false confidence, they claimed their iPhone 11’s 4G is superior to others. The numbers attest to the claim too! No 4G network can claim to have such high speeds.
Except, the user connected the phone to the WiFi. Imagine how the people who overlooked this detail would react. How come they get a better deal than we do? Well, we stand with the user that called him a donut. Their stupidity goes around in circles!
Why Are Masks Optional?
This user left a terrible review for a restaurant. They claimed both the music and staff were awful. They wanted to keep their masks off “due to health conditions.” That too, while ordering a drink. The bartender asked them to keep the mask on according to the state mandate.
The manager herself has severe health conditions. However, she managed to do her work while wearing a mask. It’s incredible how some people think masks are still optional. On top of that, the user presumed their roles based on their gender!
The Things People Say to Justify Their Views
It’s not hard to do a little research before saying something. Don’t just accept what you see, especially when it’s something like this.
Nigeria is flourishing compared to the other countries in the African continent. This user has some theories about that. They claim that the country hosts ethnic Nigerians. That’s why homogenous countries are always prosperous. What they fail to realize is that Nigerian is a nationality and not an ethnicity. The nation has over 200 ethnic groups! Someone needs to do a fact check!
How Low is Too Low?
The rock legend, Kurt Cobain, was a celebrated grunge performer. Nirvana’s frontman played music that transcended realms. However talented he was, he was also distraught. He lost himself at a relatively young age. That’s why it came as a surprise when this man claimed he had Cobain’s signature.
This user claims Cobain had signed this Funko Pop before he passed away. Funko Pops came around the late 1990s, whereas Cobain passed away earlier. The timeline sure doesn’t add up!
Is Goofing Off Really What’s Happening Here?
How do you politely deal with idiots? Unfortunately, this haunted house was subjected to a pair of siblings who didn’t take the hint. This user complained that the staff was too strict. They weren’t allowed to “goof off” while standing in line.
Here’s what happened. The brother took off the mask numerous times despite being told otherwise. They weren’t adhering to the pandemic protocols and were antagonizing the rest of the crowd. There’s a fine line between disruptive tendencies and sheer goofiness.
American Kennel Club Calls Out the Clickbait!
The lengths people go to sound legitimate is funny. Here’s one example. This ad on Twitter claims you shouldn’t keep certain dogs in your house. They’re dangerous and wild. To make themselves sound credible, they claimed the American Kennel Club endorses this statement.
Well, they didn’t want to contribute to this clickbait! So the American Kennel Club tweeted back immediately saying, “No, we don’t?” The dog in the picture doesn’t even look dangerous. Sure, it looks a bit angry, but we’re sure it was just bad timing.
At Least the Bond Is Strong
A quick look at this review tells you it was an experience gone wrong. The real question is, “How wrong?” This girl left a simple but impactful statement. The services were expensive, and the employees were rude. There’s more to the story, though.
Her boyfriend stole a hundred dollars from the store and got caught. The police were involved, and we’re sure it was an embarrassing situation. To take revenge, the girl left a one-star review. Quite vindictive, isn’t she?
The Lengths People Go To
This user shared a post about their cousin’s wedding. They raved about how photogenic the couple was. Absolutely normal, right? Except, it wasn’t their cousin’s wedding. They took the image off the internet and posted it in their account to get attention.
Another user claimed this image was stolen and said it wasn’t even a recent photo! It dates a few years back. Would you use someone else’s image from their special day for upvotes? We certainly wouldn’t!
Elon Musk Knows What’s Up
Everyone would love to know how Elon Musk’s brain operates. Despite the controversies, the man is a real genius. So, it’s no surprise that this post would receive media attention. Who wouldn’t want to know how to learn faster?
Well, Elon Musk wasn’t having it. Although he didn’t dismiss the coach’s talent, he claimed he never consulted him. Instead, the coach merely gave a talk at SpaceX one time. Honestly, the author deserves some credit for his talent for over-exaggeration. Kudos for getting the right clickbait!
Someone Did the Calculations Right
Take a close look at this post. Look at the highlighted number. Imagine how much 1.2 billion meters of plastic food wrap is! If one family uses this much, how much does the entire population use?
Of course, plastic wraps are used quite frequently, but even that number doesn’t ring right. Another user did the math and showed that manufacturers can’t even produce that much plastic. We wish there was a way to filter out information on the internet! How do we know what’s phony and what’s real?
What Fake News Looks Like
It’s one thing to inspire people by highlighting someone’s famous career progression. It’s another thing to use fake news to make the point. To make it worse, not only was wrong information used, incorrect images were too!
For example, the picture on the left is not of N’Golo Kante. Although the footballer did work in the slums, it was nothing like this. This post is the perfect example of what misinformation looks like, especially since no World Cup took place in the year 2019 either!
Cultural Appropriation and Appreciation
One should be embarrassed when saying statements like, “There’s no such thing as cultural appropriation.” Of course, there is! This phenomenon has persisted throughout the times. People blatantly ignore the differences between the two to suit their own needs. This user wasn’t going to stay quiet about it.
They used war bonnets as an example. War bonnets need to be earned by Native Americans. They symbolize strength and power. On the other hand, Creole clothes merely represent national pride. It isn’t taken as seriously.
This User Didn’t Even Know the Band
This comment is just hilarious. This man decided to call out the band for their poor performance back in 2017. The lead singer was supposedly intoxicated out of his mind and sang terribly. He was out of breath as soon as the show began.
Here’s the funny twist. The band didn’t even play a show in 2017. In fact, they stopped playing in 2013. So, either the man saw a different band entirely or was just spreading hate for no reason!
Things That Didn’t Age Well
Who doesn’t like good, old nostalgic photos? This user shared an image of his father and uncle relaxing on the patio. The picture was taken in the late 1950s. Here’s the morbid part. His dad or uncle is apparently the Unabomber.
This user clearly didn’t know the allegations the people in this image faced. The photo was taken from the documentary that highlighted the twisted genius’ story. The Unabomber aspired to create untraceable explosives and deliver them to random targets. Scary, isn’t it?
Jack of All Trades, Master of None!
First of all, how does one work 12 hours a day, six days a week? Then goes on to say, “I’m doing just fine.” This statement demonstrates a problem in itself!
This person came up with the numbers on a whim. It’s highly illegal to work 72 hours a week! On top of that, this user decided to play different roles in numerous threads. They’re a capitalist in one and a college student in another. Someone is awfully busy with so many things on their plate!
Check Your Facts First!
Can you imagine how expensive postal services would be if the private sector funded them? This user clearly has no idea. The user complains about the poor services and says private carriers are sufficient for this work.
The user rants about the pricing too. What they fail to realize is that USPS does not use their tax dollars. Their employee paychecks are taxed instead! Private carriers also won’t pick up the slack. They rely on USPS to deliver unprofitable goods. Both their presences are crucial for a robust logistics system.
Threats From Whom?
This girl’s boyfriend claims he’s getting threats from Reddit users. What threats, he didn’t say, but threats nonetheless. He says the things she posts incite these threats. However, there’s no way people can trace him.
The girl took no names, and no one knew her account either. So when the girl interrogated him, she figured he wasn’t receiving any threats at all. There was simply no scope. That’s when she decided to call it off. We think it was a wise move!
Adding the Source Wouldn’t Hurt!
Did you know avoiding beef would save more trees than not using paper would? How does that work? No one knows! This vegan claims otherwise. You only save 8.5 trees by going without paper for a year. On the other hand, eliminating beef saves 3432 trees each year.
Here’s the catch. There’s no credible source for this. Just do the math. What if a billion people ate beef each year? There are many good reasons to go vegan. False information isn’t one of them!
The Man Behind Viruses
It’s a standard theory that viruses were created to sell antiviruses. So, it doesn’t surprise us when this user brought up Bill Gates to make a point. The obsession was moot, though, because it was Kaspersky that was suspected of this move.
However, when this user changed the narrative to the pandemic context, our eyes twitched a little. Microsoft actually had an in-built antivirus software. It was always included as a part of their operating system.
Why Do People Enjoy Such Fictitious Stories?
People say ridiculous things to get likes or upvotes. The sad thing is some people fall for it! Kristian Gabrielle and her partner are one of the most followed couples on Instagram. They share cute family photos and inspiring stories.
What’s funny about this picture is that the child isn’t adopted. The user just made up this absurd claim. They even said that they know them personally! New users tend to use older images thinking no one has seen them before. They fail to realize the internet never forgets.
Lying About Donations Now
It’s hard to tell what’s worse. Stealing someone else’s story is bad enough; why is the author showing it off? They didn’t even partake in this humanitarian act. Whom are they trying to impress? This image was featured in a Vietnamese article earlier.
The user simply cropped the photo and used it. Furthermore, they claimed they donated bone marrow to someone else. It’s infuriating to see these false claims. Thankfully, you can quickly separate the real stories from the fake ones by doing a simple image search.
This Story Is Not Possible
You know, this story seems entirely plausible until another user pointed out one fatal flaw. The drummer, Creedence Clearwater, never toured with John Fogerty. The hatred between the two was infamous. That’s why this carefully constructed story fell apart.
On the other hand, it was nice to think Fogerty signed their tickets up until that point. The details were worth pondering over. If all else fails, we hope the user tries fiction writing!
The Resigned “Ok” Says it All
All adore golden retrievers. They’re friendly, docile, and, most importantly, cute! So it comes as no surprise that this dog was used as bait. It’s not entirely a bad idea — luring in a partner with cuteness.
To make the story sound more natural, the person even added how the dog broke the couch. Too bad for them, though. The user caught on. A quick image search ruined their grand plan. This image was taken from the internet.
Stealing Achievements Are a Thing Now
It’s so inspirational to see transformations like this. There’s no doubt that there was a lot of hard work put into this. So, why do people think they can snatch someone else’s achievement from the internet?
Then, proceed to pretend it’s them and hope they don’t get caught? It’s laughable! They don’t even feel embarrassed after getting called out for the blatant lie. All of them do this to get easy Karma on Reddit. As a result, they keep perpetuating these lies.
Restaurant Owner Claps Back!
The immediate reaction from reading this review is distaste. No sane individual would go to this restaurant after reading this. Why would you if the experience is this bad? No one wants to have bad Thai food!
It’s a good thing this reaction was an unwarranted one. The restaurant owner decided to address this immediately. All the food was cooked correctly and promptly served. The cook came out to merely discuss the meal. In the end, they paid less than half their original bill and still complained!
Did Someone Say Flex?
Dwayne Johnson rose to fame as a wrestling personality. His appearance in films like “The Fast and the Furious” propelled his success. He decided to adopt the name “The Rock” to sound edgier. However, even the Rock cannot be as edgy as this user.
Just take a look at this wild story. Apparently, their arms were too big for the vaccine needle. In fact, they were so big that the nurse compared them to the Rock’s arms. It sounds like a legit story!
Effective Advertising, or Is It?
The things people do or say to sell their product is absurd. This user is essentially writing an ad for their “skinny coffee.” The post highlights a conversation between the user and their doctor. The user apparently lost a notable amount of weight.
What led to this change was their “pack of skinny coffee.” We sure believe it! On a more serious note, coffee won’t help you lose weight entirely. It will boost weight loss. However, there’s no concrete evidence that coffee will lead to noticeable weight loss.
The Story Sure Adds Up
This post is the perfect example of idiocy. The woman is sharing a tale about her husband. He visited Home Depot the other day without wearing a mask on. We think this user probably got booted from the store for not adhering to the pandemic protocols.
This woman claims otherwise. He was supposedly hailed for not wearing a mask. A nurse came up to him and thanked him for his brave deed. Breaking rules can build their immune system. This user is trying to justify their irrational behavior. Wear your masks, people!
Maybe He Got the Name Wrong?
Negative reviews can bring a company to the brink of bankruptcy, especially when it has a robust digital presence. This man decided to leave a bad review for a shop he didn’t even visit. He raised a complaint about how both the employees and customers are unmasked and ignorant.
To make his story sound legitimate, he even claimed the checkout lady had a health condition. Well, it all went down when the company decided to clap back. How do all of these things happen when they don’t even have a physical store?
A for Effort
Members of the Flat Earth Society believe the world we live in is flat. This debate has been around since the dawn of time. The question is, how serious are flat-earthers? Are they kidding? Or do they genuinely believe this?
Well, this one came up with a ridiculous story to prove a point. The only thing we agree on is that this was a bizarre conversation. According to the author, NASA is nothing but smoke and mirrors. The man who worked for NASA attested this too!
We’re not sure what’s more comical: the story or the cheap advertising tactic. Here’s another poor attempt at advertising. The author was idly chilling in the park, munching on almonds. A woman appeared out of the blue and started screaming at them.
She and her son are allergic to almonds. In response, the author took out her new essential oil blend and injected them with it using a needle. Absolutely normal, right! They were then able to eat almonds with ease. Prescribed medicine didn’t work, but DIY essential oils did!
Here’s another unbelievable story. This user apparently created a new dish for McDonald’s. Here’s how the tale goes. The author wasn’t pleased with McDonald’s Big Mac. So, of course, they complained to the “cook.”
The cook wasn’t pleased and invited them back to the kitchen for a quick cook-off. They created a new sandwich on the spot. That’s not all! The sandwich was so good that it impressed the rest of the staff. It has now appeared on the menu for future use. What a believable tale!
Everyone loves Harry Potter. All the characters are filled with vigor, and the plot is filled with adventure. So, of course, the fandom is expansive. People frequently pair Hermione and Draco together for their strong personalities.
We don’t wholly blame the author for trying to manifest this. Our “Hermione” found a “Draco” in the coffee shop. He was perfectly in character too. It was believable up until this point. Then the author said they got free pastries. Life isn’t this magical, unfortunately.
We Can’t Decide What Sucks More
There’s no place on Earth like Disneyland. You can only get this one-of-a-kind experience here. From meeting your favorite childhood characters to getting on those fantastical rides, it’s a surreal experience.
Even meeting like-minded people and enthusiasts like you feels different. That’s why this post has us confused. Why would straws receive this kind of response? Paper straws work just fine. Unfortunately, the author seemed to have spent more time distributing straws than having fun. Their loss!
The Trajectory Is Off With This One
The Flat Earth Society is back at it! Why would anyone believe this silly story? We wish we had the author’s confidence! Just read this post. The user wanted a word with the pilot. Lo and behold, they were actually allowed.
What was the conversation about? The curvature of the flight. The author wanted to prove a point. The plane doesn’t nose-dip. So, of course, it flies over a flat surface. This reasoning explains how the Earth is flat and not round. On point, isn’t it?
What an Elevated Tale
How do you know someone is trying really hard to roast someone with futility? Take a look at this post. Here’s a clearly made-up interaction by the author. First, the older man tried to shame her for not reading.
She refuted that statement by showing the book in her hand. He then proceeded to question her taste in music. Baby boomers have all the time in the world, right? Want to hear her retort? She was listening to hymns. Wow, she had everything prepared!
This Man Is Immune to Humiliation
How is this real? Do people not feel embarrassed saying things like this? This entire post is just plain laughable! So the author went to get tested for a virus. The test came back negative. Great! The story should end there, right?
Apparently not! The doctor came back and told him his immune system was superior to all. His DNA is the answer to the current world’s problem. He is the cure. However, since he won’t be getting paid for it, he won’t help out. We believe every word!
Take a Look at This Nonsense
The outlandish stories don’t end there. Here’s another. So this patron visited a restaurant hoping to get a good meal. Unfortunately for them, people filled the place to the brim. That’s fine. What would an average person do?
Wait for a vacant seat of course. The author came up with a master plan. They called their “bro” to let them know their significant other was here with someone else. This statement prompted six couples to leave the premises. It seems like the majority cheats in this sad, cruel world.
We Could Live With This Heartbreak
The mission of Walt Disney is to inspire people through compelling stories. We think this user is just living up to the name! This story is so unbelievable; it can only be fiction. Why do we say so? Well, ask yourself this, who do kids go to see in Disneyland?
Mickey Mouse is a common name. Any of the Disney princesses too. Now, Walt himself? That’s something worth thinking about. He doesn’t dare to say he’s not Walt. He doesn’t want to hurt others’ feelings, of course.
The Classic Mix-Up Story!
Let’s take a look at one of the classic mix-up stories. This one is so crazy that you can catch the lie from the get-go. It’s just too illogical to be true. So, the user wanted three donuts and a water cup. Everyone in Dunkin’ Donuts heard it wrong.
So, the author got three donuts in a cup instead. Congratulations! You managed to squash a bunch of donuts for likes. You must be pleased. There’s no way this was a lie. We can’t detect it at all!
Being a dad means many things, but one of the most important is that you have to start telling dad jokes: bits of humor that often end up being so bad and so corny, that they almost loop entirely back around into being good and genuinely funny. We can’t say if all of these dad jokes make the cut, but this list contains some of the most stereotypical dad jokes around. If you laugh, you lose.
