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.
