The Most Ridiculous Things People Tried To Pass Off As Reality On The Internet

Anyone who has spent any small amount of time on the internet could probably tell you that not everything you see on the World Wide Web can be accepted as 100% truth, but we’d all like to think that we can tell the difference between fact and fiction.

While it came sometimes be hard to tell what’s real or what’s not, some people on social media make it particularly easy to spot a fake thanks to their efforts to turn themselves into something they’re definitely not.

She Could Be A Track Star

With legs as long as those, her talents are wasted as a model. She should be trying out for the Olympic track team or off reaching things that are stuck on the top shelf.

Just Hire A Pregnant Model

Rather than photoshopping a fake belly onto a non-pregnant woman and leaving her looking like she’s about to recreate that scene from Alien, would it not be easier to simply hire a pregnant woman?

Even The Food Can’t Be Trusted

So now we have to go around wondering if even the food or flowers we see in photos on social media is fake too? Is nothing sacred in this world?

Lighting The Way

You can take comfort in knowing that if you’re ever staying at his apartment and the power goes out, you’ll be able to survive off the glow of his teeth until the lights come back on.

Catch Of The Day

I understand that you think catching a fish this large will enhance your social status and have all the women swiping right on your Tinder profile, but you’d be better off with no fish at all.

Knees, Who Kneeds Them?

Prior to seeing this photo, we probably would have argued that everyone needs to have knees to live their life, but this model has proved us wrong. She’s doing just fine without them, and we can too.

Even The Food Looks Fake

There are too many things happening in this photo to pinpoint just one issue with it, but I think we can all agree that this is a bit much. Surely, no one can think they look better like this than in the original photo, whatever that may be…

Well, That Seems Completely Believable

Sure, it looks like he actually cut a picture of a celebrity’s arm out of a magazine and taped it to his body or to his mirror, but we’re just going to let him have this win.

We’re Inclined To Not Believe Her

Maybe if she had photoshopped herself into the patch of sunshine and managed to add a shadow, we might have believed she was really on the Disney boardwalk and not sitting in her room in some state other than Florida while photoshopping this.

Talk About Unattainable Goals

It’s already hard enough to scroll through Instagram and see a bunch of other people who have bodies you can’t possibly attain, but this is just too much. This isn’t fitness goals, this is just impossible.

Sunsets And Trees Don’t Mix

Haven’t you ever been told that sunsets don’t reach behind the trees? No? We haven’t heard that either, but apparently, that’s what this girl was taught in school. Maybe that beautiful, completely natural sunset that definitely happened will distract people from the truth.

You Forgot The Box’s Shadow…

If you’re going to photoshop items into your Instagram giveaway so you can gain some recognition or extra followers, at least take a photo where the shadow doesn’t expose you.

Half-Person, Half-Cartoon

It’s like whoever was designing this ad changed their strategy halfway through… It was going to be a cartoon, but then they went with the real person and never corrected her bottom half!

Its The A Bug’s Life Look

We understood that people like to edit their photos to make themselves look better, whether that’s by making their skin a little smoother or their waist a little smaller. We have no idea what this woman was trying to do with these edits…

Even Mother Nature Can’t Pull This Off

So you’ve got the sun breaking through the clouds up ahead, but you’ve also got the sun shining on the back of the woman looking at the sun in the distance. Plus, there’s the fact that the sky doesn’t match the reflection in the water.

Pecs > Pendant

Don’t you just hate when you work out too much, and you become so ripped that your pecs grow over the top of your necklace? The sacrifices people make to have a six-pack!

Is That Maya Rudolph?

Unfortunately, no matter how much you edit a photo or how many filters you throw over it, the second you start a live stream or post a video, you’re going to expose yourself.

Should We Be Airbrushing Our Ankles?

Out of all the things that society tells us we should be ashamed of or that we should feel insecure about, ankles were never one of them. That changes today. It’s time to start airbrushing your ankles, ladies. Break out those Photoshop skills to get that boneless, poreless ankle skin.

But Why Make The Heads Smaller?

Did they make the heads smaller, or did enhancing every other muscle they have and lengthening their legs simply result in their heads looking smaller? It looks like they’d topple over if a strong breeze came along.

Good Luck Swimming In That Pool

Wow, what a lovely home this girl has! Which Windows desktop background do you think she pulled this picture from? It would have been more believable if she hadn’t put herself in the photo.
