28 Times Intellectually Challenged Souls Believed The Onion

The Onion has been dishing out satire since 1988. That's over thirty years. While they may have ceased to distribute an actual paper, their hilarious articles are very much in existence in the digital universe. And there are still stupid people who believe their (mostly) obvious joke headlines. 

People believed the onion, twitter, funny, ate the onion, yikes, cringe.

Diane Sawyer Dragged For Sexist Remarks In Resurfaced 2003 Britney Spears Interview

Recently released New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears has sparked a conversation around what really happened to the pop legend in the early aughts and who is to blame. We all remember watching voyeuristically as Britney Spears suffered a harrowing public breakdown in 2008. While the rest of us usually have the benefit of privacy when we face life challenges that threaten our mental health, someone like Britney grew up in front of the camera, and in 2008 the paparazzi were more vicious than ever. The infamous images of Britney shaving her head, attacking a paparazzo's car with an umbrella, and being shipped off to a hospital are what many remember before she started to disappear from the public eye, and Framing Britney Spears gives important context to these events. From the moment Britney became famous as a teenager, her image was aggressively scrutinized by the media, whose self-proclaimed arbiters of morality acted as if a sixteen-year-old girl ought to bear the responsibility of being a perfect role model to an entire generation. 

Britney fans are particularly enraged by an interview excerpt that was included in the documentary. In 2003, at the height of Britney's career, Diane Sawyer interviewed the pop star on ABC's Primetime Thursday. One could hardly call it an interview—it feels more like an attack. In the scene, which is difficult to watch without cringing, we see a visibly uncomfortable 21-year-old Britney endure sexist questions from Sawyer about Britney's virginity and her responsibility as a role model to young girls. At one point Sawyer brings up tabloid rumors that Britney had cheated on Justin Timberlake. 'He has gone on television and pretty much said you broke his heart. You did something that caused him so much pain, so much suffering. What did you do?' Asks Sawyer. Can you imagine an interviewer today asking a young woman this same question? 'What did you do to him?' The cringe is severe and the resurfacing of this interview has many millennials questioning their own complicity at the time. It's sad to be reminded that not long ago, treating women this way was completely normal.

The Diane Sawyer interview was just one example of how the media publicly ripped Britney apart when she was most vulnerable, and not only contributed to the decline in her mental health, but profited from it. Sadly, Britney is still experiencing the fallout of those years—she is locked in a court-ordered conservatorship that has stripped her of control and agency over her own life. Those who have watched the documentary are now dragging Sawyer on Twitter and demanding that she apologize to Britney Spears for the wanton misogyny of that 2003 interview. We've collected some Twitter reactions from some of the people who have revisited the brutal and inappropriate media coverage of Britney's life from that time. We appreciate biographical profiles like Framing Britney Spears and HBO's Tiger because they remind us that even the most iconic and god-like public figures are still just human beings.

Kumail Nanjiani's Swoleness Inspires Twitter Memes & Debates

Remember back in 2019 when Kumail Nanjiani shared that super ripped photo of himself on Instagram? Well it seems like a lot of people on Twitter don't. The Silicon Valley star had been getting swole for Marvel's Eternals, and his dramatic transformation was talked about for what felt like years. It shouldn't be news that stars get in shape for Marvel movies, but after Nanjiani shared a photo from his holiday in quarantine, people on Twitter decided it was time to do what they do best: debate his physical appearance. 

The photo in question features Nanjiani in front of a plate of food, jaw looking exceptionally cut - to the point where Twitter users began accusing the actor of using steroids. Most of the jokes were absurd and in good fun, but the mockery struck other users as a tad racist. We don't see people scrutinizing Chris Pratt's transformation from flabby Andy from Parks and Recreation to jacked Starlord, do we? While we do think the attacks might be a little unfair, we're really just here for the jokes. If anything, we're jealous of Nanjiani's diesel bod. And more than that? We're psyched for Eternals.

Twitter Thread: Chuck E. Cheese Worker Conducts Behavioral Study Using Arcade Games

While Chuck E. Cheese has gotten attention for filing bankruptcy and for their sneaky Pasqually's Pizza debacle, we think this Twitter thread involving the chain is far more interesting. Twitter user @Professor_Palmer took to the social media site to announce that for the past few weeks he's been conducting secret behavioral studies on unsuspecting Chuck E. Cheese game players. The experiments are rather simple, and involve adjusting the use of lights and sound in an attempt to better understand what draws people to - or away from - arcade games. The results? Human beings are really, really, easily manipulated. While this isn't the most shocking insight on our kind, seeing Cary Palmer spell it out in such a fun (and thorough) way has been incredibly informative. And very entertaining. 

Fascinating and informative twitter thread from chuck e. cheese employee who conducted behavioral study using sounds and lights in games to see what people respond to | Professor_Palmer @CaryPalmerr The last few weeks I've begun conducting my own behavioral study in secret. I have been adjusting games at Chuck E Cheese and recording the subconscious response of guest interaction over the week. I've discovered some pretty interesting things.

Family Dinner Gets Meme'd With 'Why Are You Dressed Like That?' Tweets

Many of us are familiar with being the black sheep at family dinner, and it seems Twitter's come up with a way to meme the situation pretty perfectly. In mid-December, Twitter user @nternetgirl started a pretty serious trend when she shared a photo of a white bread family staring at a camera, paired with the text "Why are you dressed like that?" and an image of a pixelated woman that looks like she's straight out of The Grudge or The Ring. The tweet did numbers, and inspired a ton of variations - just in time for the holidays when many people feel like the punchline of the meme. The subjects cover a lot of fandoms, and are pretty damn relatable.

Twitter Thread Explains Why Jews Eat Chinese Food On Christmas

The Jewish tradition of eating Chinese food on Christmas is well-documented in the media, but have you ever wondered how that started? Well, it's a lot more than a trope. Twitter user @kehillahjewess composed a brilliant thread to demystify the holiday ritual on Christmas Eve, and the historical roots are pretty damn fascinating. Turns out the stereotype goes way deeper than the simple fact that Chinese restaurants are some of the only businesses open on the Christian holiday.
