Cringey Lies From Internet Attention-Seekers

We've got to hand it to these people. While we've been struggling with writer's block, trying to cover the dumb shit that happens on the internet in a simple, yet reasonably thoughtful way, there are clearly plenty creative writers having an easy go of it. But don't let their details or specificity fool you - these people are masterminds of fiction. 

Though most of us would like to consume approach the world with less skepticism, the more time we spend on the internet the harder it gets. On Twitter there are hordes of parents fabricating stories about how their 2 year old is an emotional or intellectual savant. Anti-maskers celebrate highly dubious acts of rebellion. Influencers claim that women fall at their feet. Some of them are straight up seeking attention, or some validation to fill some kind of void in their souls. Others have more of an agenda. But they've all got one thing in common: being incredibly cringeyliars.  And we're here to share some of that cringe with you.

OSHA-Triggering Fails That Are Kind of Impressive

Growing up my mother used to accuse me of "creative incompetence," a complicated manner of getting out of chores that I really, really didn't like. You know, like sweeping. I'd dramatically "fail" at sweeping to be absolved of the tedious task and my mother's 99 cent store brooms. These geniuses? Well, they're definitely creative. But it's looking like while they're risking it all (and definitely not complying to OSHA) they're actually...getting the damn job done. Maybe someday I'll have the same ambition.

Redditor Describes Ex-Husband’s Jousting Horse Debacle

There are few suckier ways to get dumped than being left for somebody else. Wondering where things went wrong is never fun, but there is one potential silver lining: learning that the person who screwed you over is getting a taste of their own medicine.

Redditor u/Hekate_Web took to r/CrazyEx to recount an especially wild case of this happening. She explained a situation with her ex-husband that she describes as "Horsegate". The story details how her husband left her for another woman, who happened to be a jouster at a renaissance festival. The new couple then decides to buy a horse on credit. What happens next sounds like a demented game of Cards Against Humanity come to life —  and serves a satisfying dose of karma to the two-timing ex.

Cringey Humblebrags From Obnoxious People

We all know people who spend too much time talking about themselves. Sometimes they're blatant in their braggadocios tendencies - name dropping gushing about their accomplishments. Other times, their self-adulation comes in a more sneaky form: the humblebrag. 

Humble brags are definitely obnoxious to experience in real life. But thanks to the advent of the Internet, we are now inundated with coyly self-congratulatory posts on social media. The painful and eyeroll worthy posts, while grating, can be truly wonderful to marvel at. We can't help but be fascinated by minds of people who spout self-praise. There's even a subreddit dedicated to this tone-deaf behavior. We've gathered some of the best humblebrags of the last year for your hate-scrolling pleasure. If you need more? Join r/humblebrag. You won't regret it.

Cringey Times Humbebrags Were Anything But Modest

There are few people with less self-awareness than the embarrassing humblebragger. You know who we're talking about—the sort of person who's always trying to indirectly brag through a superficially modest statement. Some can get away with it to a certain extent, but most are laughably bad at it, usually betraying their self-obsession in an attempt to seem humble. 

We've got a whole bunch of shameful examples of obscene humblebragging for anyone who feels like cringing.

Kafkaesque Posts From This Boring Dystopia We Call Earth

Life in the 21st century feels like a bad dark comedy no one would ever pay to see. Every new headline about some evil biotech company developing drugs that make prisoners feel like they're serving 1,000 year sentences only further proves that the world is some sick joke and we're living in a boring dystopia. If you're sitting in your Kafkaesque cubical, crying inside while you wait for Western civilization to collapse, maybe you'll morbidly enjoy these dismal posts about the late capitalist hellscape we're all forced to exist in.

Bad People Who Need A Double Dose Of Karma

Karma's a bitch. But karma is almost not enough of a punishment for these terrible people. From animal abusers to selfish murderers, these scumbags deserve to be punished - and hard.

20+ Gen Z Moments That Are Either Next-Level Cringe or Masterful Satire

The chaotic world of TikTok can feel overwhelmingly insular to anyone who doesn't live on the app, and outsiders tend to assume that few over the age of 25 use it. But despite the fact that TikTok is heavily associated with Gen Z, the young cohort only makes up about 20% of the social network's user demographics. So why has Gen Z seemingly conquered TikTok? Maybe it's the sheer volume of content they're somehow able to churn out. Or maybe it's their idiosyncratic and ever-changing coded language they rapidly adapt to as it morphs in realtime with the latest trends and viral phrases. Whatever they're doing on the internet, it's either impossibly cringe or some brilliantly nuanced satire. We've collected some perplexing screenshots from Twitter account @genzmoments—take a gander and decide for yourself.

Raunchy Leaked 'Powerpuff Girls' Script Is A Goldmine Of Cringe

As an elder millennial, the Powerpuff Girls,  were nearly as popular as the Spice Girls. Just like every group of friends had its own Baby Spice or Scary Spice, every group of girls had its own Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The tough trio's antics and ass-kicking nurtured plenty of lifelong fans who look back fondly on the animated series. But while the nostalgia is pleasant, we can speak for ourselves when we say we never thought a live action version of the show was necessary, or even desired. 

It turns out the CW felt differently. And now, thanks to a leaked script, we can officially say that the internet agrees: we do not need a live action Powerpuff Girls show. And judging by the off-the-chart cringe of the leaks, we definitely don't need one that involves Juno's Diablo Cody.


While we're no prudes, the excerpts above are more than a little over-the-top. Leaked nudes? Buttercup having 6 rounds of sex with a woman she met the night before? The whole thing feels like the fruits of a bot that studied millennial twitter from 10 years ago. Like, who the hell keeps tabs on people using Linkedin?? Twitter users did not take kindly to the cringey attempt at a reboot. Especially after finding out that the script is real. We've put together some of the funniest reactions to the debacle. And we're pleased to say that the pilot was abandoned. While it's comforting to know that we won't be seeing this blasphemy come to fruition, we don't want you to get too excited: the CW has decided to go back to the drawing board. It might be a good time to take bets as to how bad they'll screw up next time.

Angry Italians Call Out Offensive Attempts At Their Cuisine

Many food publications have come under fire recently for either completely bastardizing a culture's cuisine, or neglecting to correctly credit a dish's influence. While we've enjoyed all the drama surrounding Bon Appetit's various failings, the latest culprit of food crimes is none other than The New York Times. 

The publication stoked the ire of readers back in 2018 when they referred to Yorkshire Pudding, an English supper special, as a dessert. Their latest misstep? Publishing a recipe for a dish called "Smoky Tomato Carbonara."

For those of you who may not be versed in Italian cuisine, they take their recipes - and methodologies - very, very seriously. Carbonara is a pasta dish (usually using Spaghetti) that combines guanciale (pork jowl), black pepper, pecorino cheese and egg to create a wonderfully rich and savory treat. Unfortunately, especially stateside, many home and professional chefs bastardize this preparation either by using substitutions such as bacon for guanciale, or, even worse, adding cream to the sauce. While the dish does have a creaminess to it, the decadence comes from the last step of the cooking process, when a mixture of raw egg is added to the cooked pasta while off the heat. It cooks into a creamy coating when done correctly. Adding cream or milk isn't just a cop out, to many Italians it's a sin. 

If the addition of dairy or use of bacon is so offensive, it's no wonder this "smoky tomato" recipe has inspired such animosity. And Italians are not ones to mince words. One chef from Rome, the 'Carbonara King' Alessandro Pipero, told Corriere della Sera "It would be like putting salami in a cappuccino or mortadella in sushi. OK, fine, but then let's not call it sushi, similarly with this one – carbonara with tomato is not carbonara. It's something else." Other opponents chose to voice their disgust on Twitter - mostly in response to the tweet that was supposed to promote the controversial recipe. But the condemnation of bastardized Italian dishes on social media is nothing new. In fact, one of our favorite Twitter accounts is an impressive archive of heated, angry comments in response to images of ketchup-soiled pasta, or pizzas with pineapple on them. The account, Italians Mad At Food, has been pumping out the entertainment since 2015, and has amassed a pretty impressive following of 100k fans. If you're entertained by this kind of food criticism, you'll definitely enjoy the screenshots they so diligently upload. We've put together our favorites from the last month or so for your convenient enjoyment, but you can see more on Twitter as well as on their newer Instagram. The anger and scathing remarks really never get old.

Memes That Are So Bad They're Actually Kinda Good

We've got a terrible collection of hideous memes from the absolute bottom of the barrel (Facebook). In this atrocious gallery, you'll find some eye-roll worthy puns, boomer humor emailed from grandma, and dumb shit that straight up doesn't make sense. You might simply hate these memes, or perhaps you see the humor in cringey content. We love these memes for the same reason we love watching movies like The Room. It's always fun to laugh at something for reasons that weren't intended.

20+ Ignorant People Who Don't Understand Human Anatomy

The ability to detect obvious distinctions between honest ignorance and trolling on the internet is becoming pretty damn challenging. That said, we can't always give genuine dumbasses the benefit of the doubt. Sure, a quick Google search will confirm that pee is not, in fact, stored in the balls. But for every searchable fact, there are 100 egregious lies, and chances are someone out there is willfully falling for them.

We've got a baffling collection of times people betrayed their dumb ideas about human anatomy by asking insane questions or making absurd claims. For the sake of our species, we really hope that some of these lunatics are just trolling.
