15 social media users who have lied so shamelessly that they are hilarious
Many studies find that making their life exciting in the eyes of other social media users has for many people now become a real psychosis. More and more often, dissatisfied people find themselves creating small parallel lives made of trips never taken, of compliments never received or of goals never achieved.
However, the lies and tricks do not always work! In fact, less experienced users can inadvertently reveal their fake stratagems, and when it happens the result is hilarious.
Here, we present a rundown of shameless lies created by social media users, to give you a laugh but also to remind all of us that living an ordinary life can be the most extraordinary (as well as the truest and most honest) of all experiences.
NB: Under each image, there is an explanation.
"My girlfriend is always trying to sneak pics of me!"... Too bad for the reflection on the car window glass.
A guy returns from a vacation in the mountains and publishes a supposed photo of himself while attempting a somersault on skis.
Comment: "This photo is part of a 2012 calendar and is literally the first picture that appears on Google images."
"I took this picture."
"But it's written Nick Boyer Photography."
When the conversation you had with your hairdresser, in which he tells you that you're beautiful, is coincidentally the same one that Robert Downey Jr and Jimmy Kimmel had on a talk show ...
When you post a picture with a small padlock saying that your boyfriend took you to Paris and you both threw the keys into the river as a symbolic gesture of true love, but a user responds to you with: "That's Australia."
A guy who thinks he is a genius at cheating on his girlfriend sends her a photo saying that he's in the car with his friend and co-worker Patrick. Too bad that, as she points out, "Patrick" looks a lot like a girl with long blond hair!
A girl boasts about her humble origins by saying how hard life was when she was growing up. Too bad that her mother saw her comment and responded: "Let's see ... food on the table, a huge yard, a bike, swing set, birthday parties, air conditioning, heat, toys ... it must have been rough."
"Hi, babe, what are you doing?"
'Nothing much, I'm really tired. Just going to sleep now, babe. And you?"
"I'm the club standing behind you."
When you want to show off all your supposed physical progress and your six-pack abs but ... by doing copy/paste with Photoshop, you accidentally deleted your navel.
This can be defined as a classic.
He says he has totaled a score of 125 on an IQ test but the result clearly declares 85. The important thing is to believe it yourself (and make others believe it, too).
"The hurrier i go, the behinder i get. - I drew this."
"Is your name Claire Stevenson?"
When you announce to the world with a photo that you have bought a brand new and very expensive car in cash ... but someone finds the same photo on Wikipedia!
When you present your girlfriend to your friends, but you are using a photo of a girl taken from the models.com website.
When you brag about being out drinking cocktails with your husband ...
- "Out with the hubby! Enjoy a few much-needed cocktails!"
But you forgot that you declined a dinner invitation using the worst of excuses:
- "I thought you were covering for your boss because his dad died. If you guys didn't want to come over for dinner, that's fine, but you didn't have to make up such a terrible excuse."
And the icing on the cake comes from your boss:
- "My father is very much alive ..."
