Lying is a part of everyday life. Studies have shown that 60% of people can’t have a ten-minute conversation without lying. This would mean that most of the conversations we have every day consist of telling some sort of lie.
Like anything in life, some people are just better at lying than others. Many got good practice as a kid when they would tell their parents they were at their friend’s house, but in reality, they were at the bowling alley on a date. Lies can go unnoticed quite frequently but those don’t carry the same entertainment value as when the person is caught. Thankfully, this list compiles hilarious examples of people getting caught in a lie and having to live with the consequences.
Mirrors Don’t Lie
This is what happens when you find out your ex has a new significant other and you need to clap back. Unfortunately, this isn’t the way to do it. Well, it actually could be a decent fake out, but the least you could do is check your surroundings for a mirror. Wall Art 1 – This Person – 0.
Being On Vacation Is Just A Mentality
Vacations are expensive but worth it for the social media flex. There’s nothing that will make your high school friends more jealous of you than seeing you swimming with dolphins in the Dominican Republic. But, imagine if you could flex your money and vacation on social media without having to spend a dime? It’s all about the angles baby. Take it from this guy.
Caught In The Act
What was always great about leaving your hometown and going to college is that you can basically be whoever you want to be. If you wanted to pretend you were a track star in high school, go ahead. If you had a 4.0 GPA but just decided on visual arts at a community college “just because” then that’s amazing. But, social media gives direct access to your high school friends who can ruin your reputation in one comment.
Car Insurance Is Expensive
No one wants to have to pay for everything that comes with owning a car. Not only do you have car insurance payments, but you have gas and maintenance payments to work through as well. But, everyone wants to be able to flex their Range Rover on Facebook to prove to all their high school friends that they became successful. This is the best and cheapest way to do so. You’re welcome.
Facebook Quizzes Tell All
These Facebook quizzes have become something that almost all your friends do when they’re bored of scrolling through their timelines. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize exactly how they work. Charley is one of those people who exposed herself quite embarrassingly. She boosted her IQ score by 40 points. This post tells us all we really need to know about her IQ.
That’s A Shady Post
There’s nothing about this post that is appealing. Luckily, sunglasses are so necessary that it probably won’t matter. Can we talk about how important those things are? They allow you to stare at people without them knowing, they block out the sun and glare, AND they make you look badass. A triple threat.
Get Them On Maury
I’ll never understand cheating. According to an infidelity study, over 33% of couples in America have had at least one of the people in the relationship admit to cheating. If you want to cheat, just break up with the person? I guess it’s easier said than done in some circumstances but once that trust barrier is broken it’s almost impossible to regain.
“Sorry I’m Late, I Hit Really Bad Traffic”
This is the excuse that’s used almost everytime you’re late for an appointment or meeting. Traffic just happened to be absolutely awful at 2 pm on a Sunday. This dude forgot reflections exist and decided to post this “stuck in traffic” selfie, which promptly backfired. Looks like an open road to me, dude.
“It’s Not Rocket Science”
This is just basic science that is indisputable. Here’s the underlying problem of this picture though. Why does he feel the need to lie about the sun being in his eyes? Well, I think it’s because guys always feel very awkward posing for pictures by themselves so they make up dumb excuses so that they don’t look like they’re trying too hard.
Super Bowl Of Chips On The Couch
The Super Bowl would be a lot of fun to be at, sure, but re-mortgaging your house just to go to the game isn’t. Super Bowl tickets can go for absurd amounts of money and it’s really not worth it. Instead, sit on your couch and buy 30 bags of chips with some of the money you saved by not going to the game and just tell your friends you went to the game.
The Thirst Is Real
I don’t know why anyone would complain about being single. First of all, it’s way cheaper because you don’t have to buy things for two people. You can also do whatever you want with no restrictions, tie-downs or obligations to another person. Lastly, you completely avoid the emotional rollercoaster that happens when you ask the burning question, “so where do you want to eat?”
Just Another Reason To Have Her Poster On Your Wall
For whatever reason Marilyn Monroe is a cultural icon and sex symbol. She went from being a mechanic to being one of the biggest stars ever and everyone is still unsure why. There’s still a lot that we don’t know about Marilyn, but one thing we do know is that she definitely didn’t have a cell phone when she was alive.
You Have To Get Ds To Play Sports
When your coach asks you for a picture to make sure you’re doing your homework, this is what was sent. What’s amazing about this picture is that this guy had one of those camouflage pencils that completely disappears in your hand. If this is a recruiting picture for players to come to that school, sign up immediately.
New Year, New Me
Why go to the gym and put in the countless hours just to get a little bit of definition in your stomach when you can get insane abs in three seconds in photoshop? This is Tinder picture material. You might work hard in the gym, but you’ll never work hard enough to make your skin change colors like this kid. That I can assure you.
It’s All Optics
This is a life hack that is underutilized every day. You know how many people you could potentially scam doing this? Probably about two, ever. But that’s two purchases that you got away with. Buying a car? Pay in cash with all one dollar bills. It’s imperative that you have the keys already so you can run and jump into the car before they notice, but try it (or don’t).
It’s important to look like you have your life together on social media, so if you have to fake it till you make it, then all the power to you. The internet has made life less about actually living, and more about how people perceive that you’re living. If that means putting on some nail polish for the perception that you’re dolled up, go for it.
As Soon As You Hit Minimum, Your Friends Change
“Money and power corrupt the soul.”- Unknown. This statement is still very true for this fast food worker because notice how that quote doesn’t say how much money they’ve made? This guy is still making 7.75 an hour, which is money, right? He also just got promoted to the front of the house which is a powerful position. Tunnel vision Adrian, tunnel vision.
Called The F Out
Participating in a triathlon would actually be one of the most physically taxing things you could do. But for Rich Froning, who is a CrossFit champion, apparently, it’s not enough. For anyone who doesn’t know what CrossFit is, just picture the hardest workout you can possibly imagine and then times that by ten.
Again, similar to the other page of someone flexing a car they don’t have. We get it. It’s impressive to be able to drive a car like this, but at least fake flex it with no holes. Don’t hold your 2004 Volkswagon Jetta keys in your hand when taking this picture. It really could’ve survived the shot without having keys.
15 Minutes Of Fame, Kind Of
Wouldn’t it be devastating to be getting your 15 minutes of fame, only to have your identity stolen because of mistrust? Yes, it’s become an epidemic to go on TV and give a fake name like Buck Nakad, so it’s no surprise camera people have this fail-safe method of just giving everyone a generic name.
