28 Completely True Stories That Sound Made-Up

20 Things That Seem Racist But Aren't, According To Twitter

Twitter user @abcdrih started a new format on Monday when she asked her followers to share "something that ISN'T racist but still FEELS racist to you?" The tweet did numbers on the site, and even inspired a bevy of copycat memes. Today, we're at the point where people are making fun of the formatting, but we still think some of the responses are entertaining. While we don't actually think eating wings wrong should be deemed racist, we can't argue with some of the other sentiments. 

Funny twitter thread about things that seem racist but aren't | rebecca @abcdrih what's something that ISN'T racist but still FEELS racist to you? @abcdrih i'll go first, white men in flip flops | Giving baby names unnecessary letters like "y", "x", "eigh", etc and just inventing names that should never have been conceived.

Twitter Thread Mocks Clueless Bath Tray Marketing Photos

Listen, we appreciate that our advanced technologies have allowed us to transport wine in inventive ways and charge our phones from the couch. We even appreciate the simple bathtub tray for allowing us to watch a movie or read while soaking in a hot tub. But apparently their marketing teams are pretty clueless as to what people actually do in the tub. As Twitter user @doodlyroses pointed out in this thread, not only do bath tray manufacturers believe that only women take baths, they believe that they eat gigantic charcuterie boards while relaxing - and drink enough in the tub to pass out. The photos are ridiculous, and verge on sexist, but we think they'll provide you with a good laugh. Which is rare these days.

Twitter Thread Exposing Fish Fraud Is Both Eye-Opening & Revolting

We've got some seriously bad news for fish-lovers. According to a report from nonprofit Oceana, over 20% of 449 fish that they tested were mislabeled, exposing some pretty serious "fish fraud." This is a staggering percentage, especially when considering that less than 1% of fish is tested for fraud. There's a huge chance that the expensive fish you're ordering while dining out is cheap - or even, according to this related Twitter thread from a biology professor, dangerous. There are fish out there that will hurt you to eat. And, as @AwesomeBioTA's class discovered, some of this "fish" is almost too disgusting for words.

Eye-opening twitter thread about professor doing a class on fish fraud | Dr.Jen M @AwesomeBioTA Josue sequenced some red snapper put money on being tilapia and right. Someone owes 5. His lab partner, Juanni, sequenced Atlantic Salmon. Comes back as Rainbow trout. Unsurprising. Not same species AT ALL, but unsurprising.

Twitter Is Simping For Young Alex Jones Carving A Pumpkin

Casual tweeter @paleoteny posted a video of 23-year-old Alex Jones on Wednesday, not expecting the short clip to blow up within minutes. If you're not already familiar with the infamous globalist-hater, all you really need to know is that he believes the Pentagon puts chemicals in the water that "turn the friggin' frogs gay." Young Alex Jones seems a bit more chill than his present-day self (which isn't saying much), but he still emits a familiar chaotic energy in the video.

Jones spends the entirety of the two-minute long clip casually hacking away at a pumpkin with a kitchen knife while confirming a caller's suspicions about FLIR Systems' thermal imaging technology and how "black helicopters are being used for surveillance of the public by police departments around the country." There are several strange things about this clip—the limp skeleton conspicuously turned away from the camera; the sudden jump-cuts to a closeup of Alice Cooper's severed head; the fact that Jones never wishes us a Happy Halloween—and yet people on Twitter didn't really seem to give a shit about any of that. Most of them either simped for the young and surprisingly handsome public access host, or entertained the conspiracy that Alex Jones is actually Bill Hicks. Take a look at the clip and decide for yourself! We've also included some of the best replies to the amusing throwback.

Twitter Thread Proves People Will Bang To Absolutely Anything

In media, people spend a lot of time setting the mood before doing the nasty. Lighting way too many candles. Queuing up some soulful Barry White-esque grooves. Maybe throwing about some rose petals. Most sex-havers, however, know that's not how it actually goes. Sometimes when you "Netflix and Chill" the entertainment is less than sexy. And this Twitter thread from @marisagz is a testament to how little people care about the background when they're ready to get it on. It's an amusing thread, and definitely left us feeling happy that we're not the only people who have had sex to something like Shrek.

Twitter Thread Reveals Bizarre Genius Of Painted African Movie Posters

We've seen some funky movie posters from the Soviet Union and Poland, but Twitter user @Retr0Joe managed to completely overshadow both with his thread of hand painted African movie posters. Apparently, due to licensing issues, some African movie theaters would hire artists to paint the promotional posters for their theaters. Most of these artists were completely ignorant of the film plots, so they'd have to fake it. And apparently that means a lot more guns, a lot more violence, and unexpected cameos from Michael Jackson. And if these aren't enough for you, there are tons more to be found in the thread.

Twitter Thread: A Brief History Of Ancient Roman Fossil Hunting

It's said that you learn something new every day. Sometimes the knowledge one gains can seem pretty mundane. But today, Twitter user @OptimoPrincipi managed to rock our world with an informative thread about ancient Roman paleontology. The short thread is an eye-opener for anyone who thought the science was, well, modern. Turns out that Roman "fossil hunters" were fascinated by the bones of the "monsters" that pre-dated humans, even going as far as to create replicas of the extinct creatures. It's a wonderful look at the inquisitive minds of the past, and a testament to the apparently rich history of archaeological discovery.

Heartwarming Twitter Thread About The Right Way To Address A Transition

As more people feel comfortable coming out as trans, there seems to be more discussion regarding the proper way to handle a person's transition. Are you re-meeting? Is it awkward to ask for a new name? Should it be acknowledged at all? Twitter user and musician Mel Stone managed to tackle this issue by sharing a very sweet story about being accepted by her Indian takeout guy. The story prompted other people to share their own heartwarming transition acceptance stories, and it's brought up a whole lot of happy-cry feels on this beautiful Monday. We've included some of our favorite tidbits from the thread, but you can take in more of the wholesomeness right here.

Father's Day may have been this past Sunday, but dad behavior is always funny. Twitter user Ryan Nanni decided to pay respects to all dads by asking people to share their most dad-like moments of 2019. The responses did not disappoint.

Former Clerk Shares Wholesome Story Of RBG & Fantasy Baseball 'Trash Talk'

It was a somber weekend for much of the United States after the news of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death broke on Friday. The 87 year old judge was a champion for women's rights, and had become somewhat of a cult figure in recent years. Many devotees shared somber, wordy, and often beautiful tributes to their hero, highlighting her accomplishments and struggles as a woman in politics. But it's a warm and silly Twitter thread from one of Ginsburg's former clerks, Scott Hershovitz, that really made us feel something. 

The thread, which involves some "friendly" fantasy baseball competition, shows a side of RBG that's a little more personal than most. A quiet but feisty mischief that we assume only those closest to her were privy to witness. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. 

Funny and sweet twitter thread from scott hershovitz about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and fantasy baseball | Scott Hershovitz @shershovitz Today happy RBG memory time talked her into talking trash OT06 clerks had fantasy baseball league. Some chambers had teams. Some individual clerks did. And Justice Alito wanted team himself, not his clerks. 1/11 | last week term Ginsburg clerks were matched against Alito's team. RBG on losing end lot term. Not this time destroyed him: 10-0.

Amusing Twitter Thread Compares Civil War Generals To Muppets

We never thought we'd see the day that some enterprising Twitter user decided to assign Muppet lookalikes to prominent Civil War generals, but it's officially come. On September 6th,  Phd candidate @CNZander began their humorous journey, introducing the world of Twitter to the fact that Braxton Bragg bears an uncanny resemblance to Sam the Eagle. Even more amusing? That General Custer had curls that nearly rival Miss Piggy. We've included some of the astute tweets in this gallery, but you can check out the thread for more whimsical and historical goodness. There's definitely more where these came from.

Twitter Thread Explains The 'Dolphin Mind' Of People With ADHD

We never thought we'd see the day that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would be used to explain the way people with ADHD think, but that day has officially come. In a thread from earlier this week, Twitter user @3TrackMind79 shares the nuances of what he likes to call "dolphin brain," and how these rapid-paced thoughts can lead NTs (neuro-typicals) to become confused when people with ADHD pepper their conversations with what might seem like non sequiturs. It's an interesting and amusing read, and definitely gives some valuable insight for those of us want to communicate better with our friends with attention disorders.

Twitter Thread: Frustrated Husband Buys Entire Truck Of Rice, Madness Ensues

Writer Shiv Ramdas became a huge hit on Twitter yesterday after sharing what became a viral saga of his frustrated brother-in-law, a truck of rice, and his absolutely terrifying-sounding sister. The "BIL" in question had apparently grown weary of being sent to the store for rice every damn day. And it seems the man finally snapped - and instead of ordering a big bag of the staple grain, he purchased an entire truck of rice. Needless to say, his wife was not happy with the truck of rice in front of the house. And some intense (and hilarious) negotiating ensued. We've put the story in this gallery, but be sure to follow Shiv if you like his storytelling. We definitely do.

'Hamptons Ho' Twitter Thread Excites With Mysterious Money & Movie-Worthy Hilarity

Twitter user Jaime Primak caused quite a stir on the social media platform after tweeting a twisty and saucy thread yesterday. The saga begins with an introduction to her friend who lives in the Hamptons: 

From there, things get a bit crazier. While the 20 year old was (thankfully) not doing anything seriously criminal, it appears he had caught the attention of some wealthy Hamptons women, and had saved the money earned during, well, intimate encounters with the cougars in question. The thread has gone viral, and people have a lot of opinions about it. Some people think it's fake. Others think the young man's parents are stealing from him. There are also people who think the entire thread is invasive and unethical. We think it's a much-needed chuckle during a dark time. You can read below and decide for yourself.
