That's fake news. If you had a dollar every time you heard that in the last four years you'd probably be living on a private island at this point. So lets laugh at it in all its glory, fake and all.

18 Poor Fools Who Fell For The Onion's Satire

We don't want to come at people too harshly for getting wooshed by ambiguous jokes or falling for a fake headline that sounds like it could be totally real, but everyone should know what The Onion is by now.

If you go literally anywhere on the internet, you're guaranteed to come across bullshit, fake news, and straight up liars. Some very online people just can't help themselves and lie about the weirdest stuff. Why do they do it? Does it give them satisfaction to get away with lying to  strangers on the internet?

We've got some pretty cringey and amusing examples of times deceivers got what they deserved.

Fake Rumor Of Elon Musk's Death Sparks Spicy Twitter Memes

Okay first of all, let's get something out of the way: no, Elon Musk is not dead. We're not quite sure who is responsible for the initial spread of the rumor that Elon Musk died yesterday from a lithium battery explosion, but a handful of fake screenshots of news articles were circulated and caused chaos and confusion on the internet. It didn't take long for things to get set straight, but the truth didn't stop the memes. In fact, the debunking of the rumor seemed to spark even more memes, perhaps because the joke isn't so morbid if Elon is actually alive. At the end of the day, Elon Musk even tweeted an eye-roll emoji to help dispel the Twitter frenzy. We've collected some of the funniest memes that came out of today's chaotic internet prank.

Satisfying Times Liars Were Called Out For Their Shameless BS

I remember back in the summer of 1995, I decided to be super spontaneous and hop on a one-way train from Montreal to Seattle so that I could finally see my favorite band in the world—Nirvana. I was only 12 years old, but everyone always thought I was much older due to my exceptionally high IQ score of 200, so I wasn't too worried. The two-week journey was grueling, but luckily I managed to win a hefty chunk of change along the way after beating two large Russian men at several rounds of poker (those Canadian trains can get pretty wild). When I finally got to the venue entrance just as the opening band (who happened to be Radiohead) began playing, the door guy narrowed his eyes at me and asked 'wait just a minute there, where's your ticket and ID?' I took the wad of poker winnings from my pocket and slammed it on the table. 'Sold out' the door guy said, smirking at me smugly. I totally was heartbroken. I racked my genius brain for a solution, but nothing came. Just when I was about to give up, someone tapped me on the shoulder from behind. I turned around and almost screamed at the sight of Kurt Cobain himself, standing there like a guardian angel. In one swift move, he grabbed the cash, handed it back to me, and gestured for me to follow him through the entrance. On our way through he looked at the door guy and said 'you're fired, dude.' I got to watch Nirvana from the VIP area and then I spent the rest of the night hanging out with the whole band backstage and they laughed at all my jokes. It was the best night of my life.

There are three kinds of liars on the internet. Those who spread fake news, con-artists who try to scam others, and those who make up laughably fake stories for no good reason. It's relatively easy to lie online, especially with the whole internet and its wealth of resources at your disposal. But some people are very, very bad at bullsh*tting. In the age of 'reverse image search', that stolen image some redditor is trying to pawn off as their own is just one click away from being exposed by internet detectives. And these days it's just as easy to google something as it is to lie, so if you're going to post a lengthy tall tale about your non-existent memories of hanging out with Nirvana, perhaps you should fact-check your own lies first. That way, at the very least it might be an entertaining story.

We've got some amusing and pretty satisfying instances of liars getting called out for their BS on the internet. But it really makes you think—Seeing as we pulled these screenshots from the internet, who's to say that the lies aren't also lies? Anyone could photoshop a fake callout of a fake lie someone told and post it to r/QuitYourBullshit for karma. What if we're all just caught in an inception of internet lies? What if we're actually in the matrix and I'm not even typing this right now? Anyway...here's some content.

34 Credulous People Who Fell For Obvious Satire

Lately it feels like reality has become so unhinged and unbelievable that it's sometimes difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. On the other hand, some people are so eager to be outraged that they've lost the ability to recognize satire all together. Come on, everyone should know what The Onion is by now, right? Millennials: maybe it's time to educate that grandparent who uses facebook without supervision. Though, to be fair to all the grannies out there, even People Magazine and the President of the United States fell for some pretty obvious satire.

Although these painful woosh moments are mad entertaining, you gotta feel bad for some of these people—they go through life thinking the world is even more psychotic than it already is.

Queen Elizabeth Has Not Passed Away, Despite Memes Circulating The Internet

It's that time of year again where someone on the internet starts a rumor about Queen Elizabeth II's death. Last year, a troll-y Redditor created a meme predicting the her death would occur on January 5th of this year.

This year the rumor was fabricated by a WhatsApp group claiming that she had passed away due to a heart attack on December 1st. 

We just want to make it clear that no, the queen is not dead, but of course that hasn't stopped people from making memes about it.

Amazon Gets Roasted For Creating Fake Twitter Accounts To Hide Its Sketchy Working Conditions

Apparently we're actually living in George Orwell's 1984

Amazon has come under fire for allegedly creating fake Twitter accounts (under the name "Amazon FC Ambassador") to silence any criticism of the working conditions of its fulfillment centers which, if you're unaware, are known for being particularly sweatshop-like. 

Recently various Twitter users have called out Amazon for this...bizarre (to say the least) behavior. 

So without further ado, here are some of the best parodies and examples of the creepy Orwellian tweets!
