It’s hard to believe that The Onion has been around for over 30 years. But, they’re around for a good reason: they still consistently publish hilarious satirical articles with headlines that make us LOL.
Well, they make most of us LOL…
Because there are still a lot of folks out there who don’t take the time to do 3 seconds of research to find out if a headline is true or just meant to be humorous.
And that’s why I love these examples of people falling for satirical headlines hook, line, and sinker! We think these examples are going to make you laugh. Let’s check them out.
1. Oops, they did it again!
You can’t leave the babies in there!
2. Jesus, take the wheel.
This sounds like blasphemy to me…
3. Open to new methods.
It could work…give it a shot!
4. Nice to meet you!
How could anyone fall for this one?
5. This chimp is going to be a hero.
But it will come at a price…
6. How could they do this?!?!
I don’t see her being able to pull this off…
7. The man is dedicated to his craft.
I can’t wait to see this!
8. A lot of research went into this.
I’m glad scientists finally figured this out.
9. We got a debate going on here.
I totally missed The Rapture, by the way…
10. Did you know this?
A little-known Hollywood fact.
11. It really happened!
You didn’t hear about this?
12. This is hilarious because we’ve all seen this in a hotel.
But one person didn’t catch on…
Will they ever learn…? Probably not!
How about you? Do you know any people in your life who fall for satirical headlines and articles like these?
If so, please tell us all about it in the comments. Thanks!
