This fella wanted to send a kind message to the world, one that reminds all of us of what the Christmas spirit is really all about. What is it about? It’s about giving, and with such a generous tip, he sure does give a lot.
The only problem is that this tip may have been a ruse and the copy of the check for the server may have a very different number written on it. We guess we will never know, but one thing is clear. We’re calling nonsense on this Christmas post! Guess the only real place left to learn about the true meaning of Christmas is the Hallmark Channel.
False Banana Alarm
Spotting this secret banana message does look troubling at first glance. No one wants to see someone stuck in supposed slavery in Bali! An actual cry for actual help! How often do you see those things so explicitly in your day-to-day life? Not that often, which should have been your first sign that there is fakery involved.
Thankfully for those who missed the first clue, there is that comment at the bottom to help everyone calm down. While this looks troubling at first glance, this cry for help turned out to actually be a hoax, at least according to this avid Redditor. We can all feel relieved now.
That's Not Chicken
The fast-food industry in America has taken its lumps, and quite a number of them are deserved. Then there's this photo, which purports to show “mechanically separated chicken,” a pink slime that is used to make all the nuggets and patties for restaurants, and even that it contains everything from a chicken: bones, organs, and more.
Sounds offputting, if not a good weapon in favor of vegetarianism. Good thing it's all a figment of the poster's imagination. Turns out it is actually tubby custard from the kids' show “Teletubbies,” which is neither supposed to be chicken nor was actually eaten.
Emergency Facebook Status
It can be a frightening experience when faced with danger. The best thing we can do is remain safe and get help. That should just go without saying. Sounds like a basic human instinct. But sometimes you just have to let your Facebook friends know what's up. Maybe that's a new human instinct, we don't know anymore.
Like in this case — we have this person who thought it was more important to update their Facebook status AND continue with the back-and-forth chatting in the comments instead of just calling the police. Are they bluffing or just addicted to social media?
Social media platforms are filled with fun little quizzes to take and share on your page. Most of the time they are just good harmless fun. Not here though. What we have here is just straight-up humiliating. Of course, when it comes to social media, it's all very public, that is the point after all!
So when this smart person decided to share their IQ test on Facebook, they seemed to have missed the results (written in giant letters.) Unfortunately for them, it says it right there, twice in fact. We're not quite sure how they missed the written results but their IQ results might be indicative as to why.
