Funny ‘Do You Know Who I Am’ Moments
Have you ever had one of those moments where you’re talking about a topic you think you’re pretty knowledgeable on, but then someone else in the room totally blows you out of the water? Those are just two cases where things might get a little embarrassing if you’re not sure exactly who you’re talking to.
We think it’s pretty hilarious when we see this kind of thing happening, especially if it’s not happening to us. That’s why we put this article together, because these people on the internet had absolutely no idea who they were talking to, and we couldn’t stop laughing about it.
We’ve got famous authors being shot down, celebrities going unrecognized, and a whole lot of confusion down below. Keep scrolling and you’ll see what we mean.
Maybe The Last Positive Conversation Involving Will Smith
If you’re a big fan of a series, you probably know all the movie adaptations. But, you should probably also know who wrote those stories, and here we see a situation where the people clearly didn’t. Ed Solomon, the writer of Men in Black, tweeted this a while ago about an interaction he had in a coffee shop. Apparently, the people having a disagreement about his work didn’t want clarification after all.
What makes this even funnier is the not-so-thinly veiled connotations attached to what these people said to the writer. It’s alright if you want to continue your conversation, but would it hurt that bad to listen to someone else’s outside opinion? You never know who might be offering it.
Tony Hawk Is Just Doing Side Quests At This Point
Tony Hawk is one of the greatest skateboarders of all time, full-stop. So many people know him for his hugely popular video game series, but back in the day, Tony pushed the boundaries for skateboarding and helped the sport grow into the global phenomenon that it is today. Still, after all that, the guy is like Rodney Dangerfield sometimes: he can’t get no respect!
There are loads of stories online about Tony getting called out in public for looking exactly like himself, or sounding exactly like himself, or skateboarding exactly like himself… you get the picture. People just can’t seem to believe that a celebrity as big as he is could be so normal.
Gotcha Journalism At Its Finest
The term “gotcha journalism” means when reporters try to jump out at politicians or public figures and frame questions in ways so that there’s nothing those people can do but offer up a damaging sound bite. This time, however, this failed gotcha journalist had his attempt thrown right back in his face by a politician with every right to be proud of his voting record.
When tweeting about a separate issue entirely, Schatz was forced to defend his position on Medicare– a position he’d been pretty clear about considering it was his bill in the first place! So a tip for any aspiring journalists out there, look up who it is you’re talking to before you start asking any questions.
Who Needs a Keynote Speaker Anyway?
When Malorie Blackman, a famous British author, found herself running late to a conference she was supposed to speak at, she didn’t think it would be such a big deal. As the keynote speaker, she figured there’d be some type of accommodation laid out, or at least an attempt on the part of the venue to ensure she arrived safely. However, what actually happened was very, very different.
Thankfully, she got in and gave her speech at the end. But, there was probably a long, not-so-friendly meeting at the end of the day between the event organizers and staff about who should and shouldn’t be allowed in without a ticket. You live and you learn! Just make sure to learn who you’re talking to.
Hilarious Exchange Between a Book Reviewer and Author
In the publishing world, you’ve got authors, and you’ve got book reviewers. There are also publishers, copy editors, and a lot of other people at work behind the scenes, but for right now we’re only worried about authors and book reviewers. People in either of these professions spend almost every waking minute seeped in the written word, it’d be nice for them to take a break every now and again, no?
Nguyen and Ng are obviously chuckling with her about how ridiculous those people they’d spoken to were. Why stick your nose in someone else’s business if you don’t know what’s going on with them? We’re pretty sure that both of these people are spending plenty of time reading books.
We Never Expect Our Favorite Characters To Age
Celebrity worship culture is pretty strange, but at the same time, there’s a reason we love to look up to the stars. They’re with us for our entire lives in a lot of cases, and as we grow up and our tastes change we get to see the same actors and actresses growing up and performing in other projects. But, if you’re not careful who you’re talking to, a well-meaning compliment about a celebrity could turn into an insult pretty quick.
We think Jenna still looks great, and we’re ready for an Office reunion anyway. Besides, is anyone really interested in an update on young Pam from the day after the show ended? Give us the extended story! We want to see grown-up Cece!
Maybe Don’t Bash The Writer About Their Own Show?
Avatar: The Last Airbender was a groundbreaking show for more reasons than one. Its animation style was a bridge for many young children who later got into more adult manga and anime shows. Its political undertones were also powerful commentary that we can still use to interpret the events of today. The writer themselves expressed this recently, but some Facebook users didn’t seem to agree.
How self-entitled do you have to be to tell someone to figure out their own work? And by the way, by telling people to just enjoy the show this person is stopping people from further enjoying the show. We should all be allowed to extrapolate our own opinions and take on the things we love, no matter how unpopular!
How Many Guesses Does This Guy Need?
Have you ever had the sneaking suspicion that you saw a celebrity out in public? You don’t want to be rude and just go barreling up to ask for a picture or an autograph, but at the same time, if it’s them wouldn’t it be cool just to say hi? It’s a classic dilemma and one that the barista in one coffee shop seems to have been facing when he thought he saw Tom Morello ordering coffee.
The Rage Against The Machine frontman gave the guy a couple of leading answers so he could outright ask if he was Tom Morello, but the kid didn’t seem to get it. Oh well, at least he’s got a pretty cool story about the time he met a guy who almost kind of looked like Tom Morello!
Give Credit Where Credit Is Due
As content creators, it’s important that we credit people when referencing their work. But, at the same time, we usually look out for ourselves, so we don’t really understand people who go around the internet trying to snoop out content thieves and report them. This Twitter user doesn’t get it either, and they also don’t understand what the person DMing them wants them to do.
Other than posting the videos on his channel with his logo and username, how is this guy supposed to credit himself? By adding a watermark? It seems like some people, like the person messaging this video maker, just have way too much time on their hands.
Subreddit Struggle Ends Quickly and Quietly
Reddit is an awesome social media site. You can customize your feed to only contain the content you want to see, and can even contribute to communities you enjoy by becoming a moderator. Granted, in smaller communities and really niche areas, there might only be one moderator to a sub, but that’s not usually an issue. Unless of course, you try to pick a fight with that one mod.
Now, we have no idea what the actual post in question is here, so we can’t ascertain whether the mod or the reporter was in the right, but does it really matter? If anyone is letting drama on an Internet forum dominate that much of their attention span, they should probably go get some fresh air.
Rainn Wilson Rains On Kid’s Parade
Almost all of us have seen the Office all the way through at least once, and most of us have watched the whole series a few more times than that. But, does that make us the biggest Office fans? It’s a hard title to hold, especially with a massive cult classic like the Office. That’s why when this kid saw Rainn Wilson and claimed to be the biggest Office fan, he had a litmus test ready for him.
That’s a lesson for anyone out there who wants to meet one of their favorite celebrities. If you only know the name of your favorite character from your favorite film or TV show, they’re probably not going to like it very much. May we suggest Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB? Those should help.
Professional Screenwriter Has a Wholesome Exchange With Twitter Naysayer
They say practice makes perfect, and once you’ve been doing a certain job for a while, you start to get much better at it. You start learning from previous mistakes, reading trends in the business, and things get much easier. That’s why this TV and screenwriter felt pretty confident sending some advice out over Twitter. After all, he already had 15 years of experience.
Thankfully, after this woman’s failed correction was corrected, she scuttled off, like Zoidberg in the gif. She showed a welcome dose of humility here, something that’s missing from a lot of these internet interactions. We’re grateful she was able to learn from the experience.
But Did He Pull His Pants Up?
Some people have very high standards. Whether it’s for the clothes we’re wearing, the way we talk, or how we handle ourselves in public, there’s always someone who’s going to have a comment. That’s why this group of grandkids was so embarrassed– their grandmother is one of those people that always has something to say. And, it turns out this time she was directing those comments towards one of their favorite artists.
Young Thug is known for his philanthropy, so we’re not surprised he took the time out to take this photo and give this grandma a funny memory to hold on to. Still, we want to know whether he actually pulled his pants up or not. If that grandma had said that to us, we’d probably have listened.
This Doctor Came With Receipts
Over the past few years, we’ve seen a lot of people who didn’t have any prior medical experience start talking and acting like doctors. Some people will even go so far as to pull up medical papers online so they look like they know what they’re talking about. But, they rarely read those papers, and never fully grasp their conclusions. Just ask this doctor.
We’re glad this guy looked mortified. Can you imagine trying to argue with a doctor in their own office, using their own evidence? It’s one thing to do research for yourself, but when you’re getting the information right from the horse’s mouth, maybe it’s time to put away the fake stethoscope.
Set Coordinators Not Doing Nearly Enough Coordinating
If anyone doesn’t know, there are so many moving parts on any TV show, movie, or commercial shoot. Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of who’s who. You’ve got sound people, video people, brand people, production people, craft people– it’s exhausting. That’s why you’ve also got coordinators on set, to make sure everyone is in the right place, and nobody who doesn’t need to be there gets on.
Unfortunately, sometimes things get lost in the shuffle, as you saw with that post above. We’re going to give this coordinator a pass and assume it was the first day of the shoot because a director is usually pretty hard to forget. But still, there’s only one on the whole set, it shouldn’t be that hard to remember!
Insulting People’s Kids In Broad Daylight
If you’re a writer, you know, it’s hard to talk about a project before it’s finished. You’re always worried that people’s opinions of the work in progress will sway the course of your writing, and you don’t want anything to dissuade you from reaching your goal. But, when this writer had a conversation with a woman about the book he was currently writing, he had a different issue entirely.
Can you imagine insulting one of the richest people on earth, and insulting them right in front of their mother? We hope this guy didn’t own a Tesla already or anything. That autopilot might be a little unwieldy for a few weeks. Real talk though, we’re sure Elon’s mom hears this kind of thing all the time.
Oh My God Yea Us Too!
Since we doubt that any of the people reading this are major celebrities– although you never know, so hello to all of you that see this– we always wondered what it would feel like to be recognized in public. That’s why this tweet cracked us up because this artist actually had that wish granted. Unfortunately, it happened on laundry day, and she was wearing her own merch.
A lot of people probably think she should’ve admitted to being the artist, but we understand why she left the store after that. You don’t want to look like an egoist wearing your own merchandise. At the same time, you also don’t want to look dirty by admitting none of your laundry is clean. She was better off incognito after all.
There’s No Need To Lie
If anyone hasn’t seen Ted Lasso, it’s a hilarious comedy show about an American going to coach a football team (soccer team) in the UK. The cast of actors and characters in the show is incredible, and it keeps getting better with each passing season. That also means these actors are getting more recognizable. Well, most of them are at least.
Can you imagine how demoralizing it must be to tell someone who you are, and for them to tell you that you’re not? At least this superstar had the good humor to laugh about the situation, but we’re still perplexed by this person. Why tell the person they look like the actor if you don’t believe it could really be them?
Norse Mythology Is Not This Guy’s Strong Suit
Here’s a tip for anyone out there browsing the internet: don’t go picking fights with famous authors about the books they wrote. It sounds like common sense but you’d be shocked how many people haven’t figured this out. Every time we see someone come into a conversation uninformed, someone else comes with receipts and clears everything up. Just look at this one below and you’ll see what we mean.
We hope this guy was humbled once he realized he was talking to, and backed off his position. But, you never know with some of these people on the internet. Even after they’ve been shown they’re wrong, even after it’s been proven beyond a reasonable doubt, they just keep hanging on.
We’re Just As Confused As Lin-Manuel
Does this tweet below make sense to anyone? It’s not making any sense to us, or to Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda who posted the response below. For some reason, this person thinks we don’t understand that Hamilton is a piece of creative historical fiction, infusing musical elements with the story of Alexander Hamilton’s demise at the hands of Vice President Aaron Burr. What are they missing?
Someone obviously needs to take this person to see the show already. We know tickets are still expensive, but it will save us all from having to read these ice-cold takes on Twitter if we just make sure that everyone gets to see the show. It’s what Alexander Hamilton would have wanted.
We Hate a Comic That Steals Material
If anyone reading this has done standup comedy, you’ll know, it is one of the best feelings in the world when someone comes up to you after a set and congratulates you on a job well done. Take note of that, audience members. If there’s a comedian you like, let them know. Just don’t be like this guy and go up there with a thinly veiled compliment, only to accuse a comic of stealing their jokes.
We’re really more curious about that viral tweet than about anything else at this point. What could it have said? Not many jokes translate both for the stage and for Twitter, so this guy has a good thing going. Plus, now he’s got a second viral tweet to talk about on stage and get accused of stealing!
Wait, There Are Women Doctors Now?
Academia and STEM remain male-dominated fields, despite concerted efforts by both universities and STEM organizations in recent years to even the playing field. Even now, women in these fields face discrimination, and this tweet below is a perfect example. How crazy is it that this Professor wasn’t recognized, even in her own research lab?
Hopefully, this person didn’t believe she was the head of the lab because of her youthful looks, but we’ll never know. It’s still nice she had a good enough sense of humor to post this to Twitter for us to laugh at. Plus, we bet that person is going to remember her face next time they run into each other.
So We Can Use Our Own Video, Yes?
Now, this post shows us an interesting dilemma. In a strange case of maybe some missed introductions in the workplace, we see a reporter from the Guardian reaching out to ask for video permission from… a report at the Guardian? Let us make sure we’re reading that right. Yep, we had that right. It was the Guardian asking for permission from the Guardian.
To be frank, this doesn’t seem too out of the realm of normalcy for the Guardian, or maybe we shouldn’t say that. Journalism is hard nowadays! We don’t need to make anyone’s job any harder by criticizing them. Although, they don’t need to make it any harder on themselves either.
Why Would Someone Lie About Something Like This?
Phoebe Bridgers has become a worldwide sensation in recent years, and everyone wants to ride her coattails it seems. Just ask Phoebe herself. Apparently, when visiting a bar recently, she saw herself listed on the wall and after getting excited, had a bartender lie and tell her that she, herself, comes into that bar all the time. Reach a little harder, why don’t you.
We can’t get enough of thinking about this guy trying to act cool by pretending to know Phoebe Bridgers well, and him doing it to Phoebe Bridgers’s face nonetheless. That’s just a bit lazy, don’t you think? Maybe vet which celebrities you’re going to be using in pickup lines before trying them.
Oh Boy, Do We Have To Explain Animation Now?
Picking a profile picture that fits your personality is always tough. If you’re a famous actor or actress, that’s not such a big deal. Just make your profile picture (sometimes also called AVI) a picture of your face! Or, if you work on an animated program, make the profile picture your animated character’s face! Actually, scratch that, apparently that doesn’t work either.
So if we’re following this all correctly, this guy tried to burn one of the voices from the Simpsons by… making fun of them for being the voice on the Simpsons? We’re not getting the connection here. What about that is even remotely close to a burn? We’re just not sure.
Doctor Who Writers Have No Business Discussing The Doctor
Doctor Who is a pretty popular show in the UK, and has been running for a long time now, with the series spanning multiple actors as the doctor, multiple writers behind the plot lines, and lots of other changes along the way. But, when former writer Paul Cornell took to Twitter to voice his approval of a recent episode, some uneducated buffoon decided to try to school him.
Thankfully, another fan came to Paul’s defense and let this guy know that he had no idea who he was talking to. Granted, it’s alright to have strong opinions on your favorite shows, but definitely not this strong. There’s no reason to insult someone because you disagree!
Keynote Speaker Posts Hilarious Self-Burn
When David Chilton was at a conference that David Chilton was scheduled to speak at, David Chilton had a funny encounter with a woman in the elevator about, you guessed it, David Chilton. The man himself posted this to Twitter after an interested listener had no idea what the speaker was going to look like, even though she was looking straight at him!
We love that he had a little fun at his own expense here and admitted that sometimes he has trouble listening to himself too. But, if he used any humor like that during his speech, we’re sure his listeners enjoyed themselves regardless. If they didn’t, maybe they needed to give him one more chance.
Tony Hawk’s Real Family Is Here
Tony Hawk just can’t get recognized these days! It’s not that he’s not famous enough, or that people have forgotten the skateboarding star. It’s just that people aren’t expecting to see Tony Hawk just going about being a normal dude, so they never think it’s him when they run into him. Just take this example from a Covid testing site – the nurse had no idea!
With the masks and everything, you really can’t blame the technicians for not realizing in this case, but still, this is Tony Hawk we’re talking about! The man landed the first 900 in skateboarding competition history. Put some respect on his name.
Who Needs Research After All
We can never understand why people launch into these epic put-downs on Twitter before checking who exactly their opponent is. Take this example below, some commentator tries to argue with Venezuelan journalist Jesus Armas about his qualifications to discuss his own country. The guy lives there, man, he knows much more than you!
Perhaps Armas and Chalkley can work something out and meet up together in Venezuela to share their viewpoints, but since this is Twitter, we’re not hopeful. At least this commentator learned to check who he was going up against in the future. Then again, some people never seem to learn from their mistakes!
Everyone Needs To Read Some More Jo Sharp
Sending academic papers out for review is always a stressful process. You have to wait for ages for the paper to be read, and then never know whether it’ll be accepted or not. That’s what Professor Jo Sharp was dealing with a few months ago. Finally she received her paper back, and lo and behold: it had been denied. The reason? Professor Jo Sharp didn’t know enough about the work of Professor Jo Sharp.
Can you imagine being told you need to learn more about yourself before doing any more work? How does that even make sense? It’s like a massive Catch-22 or one of those things where you’re told you need experience to get experience. Just sounds like a bunch of malarkey to us.
Far From An Expert
The internet has allowed people to learn about all kinds of things with a simple search, but there’s a downside to all that. While we have a plethora of information at our fingertips, we’ve also enabled everyone with a wifi connection to feel like an expert on anything and everything. This person has definitely Googled vaccines once or twice and now thinks they’re as knowledgable as an immunologist.
Telling someone with a Ph.D. to do some research is pretty funny. We’re willing to bet that John has done at least ten times the research of this random joe on the internet. Newsflash: reading a couple of articles doesn’t make you an expert.
Where Else Would He Be?
Not everyone is into sports, but the people who are can get REALLY into it. They’re so passionate about the subject that they’re ready to school anyone who thinks they know more than they do. This Twitter user clearly wasn’t going to get into a trivia battle, but we bet he never expected that response.
In a way, we guess it was the place to be for the coach! After all, if the coach is going to be anywhere the night of the game it’s probably the soccer pitch. Either this coach is super low-key or the fan didn’t know a whole lot about the team he came to support.
What Kind Of A Question is That?
It seems like everyone’s trying to start an argument on Twitter. Any innocuous comment or photo can be subject to a huge amount of scrutiny after one person gets the ball rolling. This first user decided to jump in and comment on a collage of supposedly different women waiting for Carnival, but she’d end up biting her tongue.
Turns out this was a collage of the SAME person in what we assume are different Carnivals over the years. You can only imagine how taken aback she must’ve felt when she received this reply. How do you even answer a question about why your skin is a certain shade? No wonder she used all those question marks!
Really Not The Moment To Chime In
This was a tragic event in Hollywood history that people won’t be quick to forget. When a situation like this is all over the news, lots of unrelated people try to chime in with what they claim to be insider information. But that wasn’t the case here. You’d think that Twitter user would’ve looked up Frances Fisher’s name after seeing the verified checkmark.
Turns out THEY were the poser! Can you imagine having someone try to put you in your place after you’ve been so close to a tragedy? When will people on the internet learn how to mind their own business? We’re guessing never.
Next Level Gatekeeping
There’s a lot of gatekeeping that goes on when it comes to music fans. Apparently, you have to be able to name a musical artist’s full discography if you want to wear a shirt with their name on them. That kind of attitude is straight-up, not cool, people should be able to be casual fans of bands and singers. But this interaction was on an entirely different level.
She’s not just a fan of Alice Cooper, she performs with him! Pretty presumptuous of that grocery store guy to think the younger generations aren’t familiar with hugely famous rock stars. YouTube exists and you can find popular music from any decade on there!
Lying On His Resume
It’s very easy to make up credentials on the internet, especially if you’re on an unverified anonymous account. One of the downsides of the web is that it allows people to speak with authority about things they know nothing about. But this guy picked an argument with the wrong person and ended up getting called out on his BS.
If he had done a little research he might’ve name-checked a different organization. Grady put this guy in his place, and to be honest he deserved it. We’re getting some serious sexist vibes from this dude, what’s his problem with women developers? Maybe they don’t lie on their resume as much as he does.
Awkward Elevator Interaction
A lot of people pick up band t-shirts simply because the design looks cool. And you know what? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. You shouldn’t have to pass some kind of test if you want to wear a band tee. We’re sure the band, and the designers, are flattered to have people wearing their stuff. However, it can make for awkward situations like these.
Granted the chances of something like this happening to you is slim, but it can happen! We guess that guy didn’t take a good look at his shirt when getting dressed in the morning. How can you not recognize the face of the guy who’s on your clothing?
Who Doesn’t Know History Now?
Unfortunately, a lot of online arguments end with childish taunts like these, but in this case, it totally backfired. We’re not sure what came before this whole debate, though we can say with some certainty that the first commenter needs to brush up on American history. Surely they know that the vast majority of Americans descend from immigrants, right? Didn’t they learn about the pilgrims in elementary school?
This Native American Facebook user didn’t hesitate to pull a reverse Uno card on the ignorant commenter. After all, they really were there first! Hopefully, they learned something from this interaction and won’t go around spewing hatred on social media.
Sorry, You DON’T Know Who She Is??
We’re pretty darn surprised that this uninformed Tweet got a thousand likes. How does anyone NOT know about Malala Yousafzai? Chosen as TIME magazine’s person of the year? Nobel prize winner? Not ringing any bells? The audacity of this person to imply that she’s done nothing when she’s literally put her life on the line to advocate education for all.
People comment on world events all the time, and if anyone’s qualified to speak up about a situation like this it’s Malala. We’re simply gobsmacked that this person had no idea who she was yet opened their mouth anyway. This might be a sign that they should log off social media and breathe some fresh air.
A Korea and Rogen Expert
With the spread of misinformation on the internet, it’s good to have a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to informative articles. However, you don’t necessarily need to be the expert on everything to know when someone is talking out of their butt. This is especially true if they’ve written an article about you!
Does it really matter if the journalist has covered Korea before? Does that make them more qualified to talk about Seth Rogen’s life? The only person who could possibly know more about him than himself would have to be his mom. So unless she’s the author of the article we’re going to have to side with Seth on this one.
They Accused The Wrong Person
Cultural appropriation has become a pretty hot-button issue in the past decade. People are looking at the way they interact with other cultures and are trying to do so more sensitively and respectfully. But like with any movement, there will always be people who hop on as a way to feel superior to others.
Looks like this anonymous Tumblr user should’ve done a little research before so rudely accusing someone else of cultural appropriation. How can you appropriate your own culture? We’re willing to bet the person who sent the question isn’t even Japanese, they just felt like talking down to someone else. But they probably weren’t expecting this response!
They Must Be New At The Office
Big companies have a whole lot of employees to fill many necessary roles. You’ve got your marketing people, the PR people, the social media people, plus managers for all the different groups. As a result, it’s easy to forget the names of the people you work with, which was clearly the reason behind this embarrassing mishap! Sounds like the social media manager needs to do a little office tour.
We’re guessing Renée couldn’t have been TOO offended, otherwise, she wouldn’t have answered them publicly on Twitter. We really have to wonder, is this person brand new at the office? Sounds like Renée has a reasonably high position in the company, they should probably be aware of who she is!
This Is Why You Shouldn’t Assume
Don’t you just hate when people belittle your accomplishments? It seems pretty clear that this woman wasn’t presenting herself as a newcomer to the industry, we’re not sure why the guy she was talking to thought she needed any mentoring. This guy made a wild assumption and ended up learning why he should avoid assuming in the future.
It’s surprising that he had no idea who his friend’s wife is. Maybe he’s trying to make it sound like they’re closer than they really are. Not only does he assume, but he’s a name-dropper, too! Sounds like he can’t stand being the less important person in a conversation. Not a very good quality.
Negging Never Works
Some people like to go to the internet to complain. It’s one of the web’s many uses, and honestly, we’re all for it. Well all need to vent every now and again, what better place to do it than social media? Unfortunately, some people take our moments of frustration to offer us some condescending and unsolicited advice.
Why exactly did this guy think she didn’t know Java? Seems like he was trying to neg her, hence the awkwardly placed winky face. Why do guys think this kind of attitude is going to get them any women? As you can clearly see, she was more than put off by his comment.
Not A Very Good Host
There are enough talk show faux pas out there for an entire article, and maybe we’ll write one someday. But for now, we’re going to focus on this majorly embarrassing moment for Greta Van Susteren. We’re not saying you need to remember the name of everyone you’ve talked to…unless you’re an interviewer. Then you should probably be keeping track of the people you’ve spoken to.
This is especially true if you want to start talking about the topic you spoke with them about! That’s the problem with Twitter, the platform just makes it too easy for people to talk without thinking. Maybe Susteren should reevaluate her career choices after this!
We’re Sure He’s Familiar With The Bible
Movies that center around World War II and the Holocaust need to be especially sensitive with their material, luckily Jojo Rabbit managed to become a success with audiences and critics alike. This is in part thanks to the incredible talent of Taika Waititi, who is Jewish himself. Elsa Korr is the Jewish character who delivers this iconic line, though this Twitter user didn’t seem to think it was very biblical.
Oddly enough they decided to pick an argument with an actual Rabbi! Then again, Judaism is all about disagreements and debate, though we’re not sure this user was looking for a friendly back and forth. This was one of those classic attempts at a “gotcha” moment that, like the rest of the posts in this article, failed.
Pretty Unrealistic Expectations
Anyone who’s ever had to look for a job knows this struggle. It seems every employer is looking for an impossible amount of qualifications and years of experience. Do the candidates they want actually exist? We’re starting to think they don’t. Take the Tweet below, for example. This company was looking for 4 years of experience with software that hadn’t even been around that long!
This Twitter user would know since he created it! We wonder if he ended up sending in his resume and including a note about their posting in his cover letter. It’s really about time that companies start setting some realistic expectations.
How Many Have YOU Read?
We know how badly you all want the context behind this post, unfortunately, we’re just going to have to live in mystery. Though based on the interaction we think it’s fair to guess that the person telling Laurie Penny to “read a book” about feminism was way off-base about something. If you want to write even one book about a subject you’ve got to read a whole lot more!
Writing a single book is a huge feat, writing eight is an accomplishment we can’t even begin to fathom. A quick Google search of Laurie Penny would’ve shown this Twitter user that she’s well-known for her publications, but we guess that was just too much work for them.
Now Apologize To The Orbital Police
Elon Musk sure comes out with a lot of interesting Tweets every now and again. Honestly, we think more people know him for his Twitter account than most other things. It’s a pretty smart way to keep your name on everyone’s lips and stay in touch with the public. However, some of his fans are more than a little insufferable.
You’d think this Twitter user would’ve taken a quick glance at Jonathan McDowell’s Twitter bio before sending that reply. You don’t have to read his whole Wikipedia page to know he’s a pretty big authority on outer space. What do you call it when you put your foot in your mouth on social media? Because that’s exactly what this guy did.
She Was There, What About You?
Don’t you just hate dealing with people like this on social media? It seems like no one can talk about anything without some jerk opening their mouth. But in this case, they picked a fight with the wrong person. Karen Middleton is a political journalist who actually published a book about the war in Afghanistan. How does she know so much about it? She was actually there!
In 2007 she was in Afghanistan with a group of other journalists. While they were in their helicopter they were fired at, pretty scary stuff. We’re guessing the person who tried to put her down on Twitter didn’t know that!
Amazon Nailed This One
These days online shopping has been tailored to fit our interests to save us the hassle of searching for what we want to buy. Amazon found the best product for Author David Corn, it was right up his alley. Why was it so perfect? Because it was a book he wrote!
He definitely won’t be purchasing this one because his house is probably filled with them, but it’s crazy to see how accurately Amazon defined his personality. This might be extremely common, but we’re sure it’s not every day someone gets recommended something with their name attached to it. David must be thrilled his book is being recommended by Amazon.
Pretending Not To Be Me
No matter how famous someone is, or how well we think we know their looks, there’s still a level of uncertainty when it comes to spotting them in the wild. The only difference here is that Jeff Goldblum took it to the next level and pretended not to be himself or even know himself. Now that’s hilarious.
This woman must’ve been so excited thinking she was going to come home from work with this great story about meeting him. She must’ve felt silly after this, but we’re sure everyone else will get a kick out of it. Honestly, this meet-and-greet experience is better than just getting a basic picture to send around to everyone you know.
A Little Lurking Moment
The best way to keep busy and pass the time on a flight is by watching a new movie you’ve always wanted to see. But it’s not every day that the actual star of the movie is sitting inches away from you! This must’ve been a unique experience for both of them. Adrian Bouchet got to see a live reaction to a movie he spent time and effort working on…
and this guy can have a fan moment and ask all the questions he wants. Well, that’s if he realized who he was sitting next to. It would be a shame if he didn’t figure it out, but funny for the actor who was asked to watch his own movie.
Take Your Own Advice
Therapists are great at helping you get yourself back on track when life gets tough. It gets a bit tricky when you’re so well known that your therapist may be coming across your content before you even bring it up. Now we’re wondering if this is a common issue for celebrities who see therapists.
Therapy must work very differently for them than it does for the rest of us. Or perhaps it’s easier for a therapist to successfully do their job, that way they’ll already have some idea of who you are. Though it must be strange knowing your therapist can watch you in their free time!
Hey Reddit Where’s My Credit?
There’s nothing worse than posting something funny enough to get everyone’s attention…then getting slammed for it because someone else used it to boost their page. It’s not like this doesn’t happen all the time. It must get hard coming up with 100 percent original content and having someone pass it off as their own.
Stuff like this probably discourages content creators from trying to put themselves out there. Though we’re here to tell you that it’s still worth it. Just remember not to hound people before you know the whole story. We bet the people who called him a loser feel pretty stupid now!
The Real Cricket Expert
Cricket is a bat-and-ball sport that originated in England. It’s not as popular in the United States, but it’s well-known and regarded in many other countries. You’d think since this commenter is so familiar with the game he’d realize he was talking to someone who might know a little more than him…
Jimmy Neesham is actually an international cricket player, we think he knows the rules of the game better than this random Twitter user. Do you think they even realize who he is? If they think they’re such a cricket expert they must know he’s one of the best! Someone didn’t do their research before calling Neesham out.
You Must’ve Asked The Wrong Guy
Creator Dan Povenmire chimed in when he saw people missing the joke on one of the episodes of Phineas and Ferb. This commenter (who doesn’t even have a profile picture) thinks he knows it all and claims he already spoke to the creator. Did he not realize he just commented under the creator’s thread?
He’s clearly confused or he’s talking to the wrong person. The creator is right here telling everyone to keep watching for the real joke in the episode! How is this random internet troll really going to argue with that? He can try, and he did, but it just made him look stupid.
Referring Her To Her Own Case
Jana Winter clearly doesn’t need a referral since she experienced these laws firsthand. It seems like she has all the information she needs! This would be an honest mistake if he wasn’t talking down on her. Even if she didn’t know anything about shield law issues, there was no need for him to be nasty.
He should educate himself on a little thing called respect. It would go a long way in earning someone else’s. She should’ve told him she’s the Winter in that case just to see the look on his face. We’re sure he wouldn’t have a whole lot to say after that.
I Got A Referral For Myself
It’s been said that women mature faster than men. That’s what makes an argument like this even worse. How much does this guy really know about resilience? Maybe more than we think since he read this highly credited book and even tried to refer it back to the author herself!
Some men will try to explain something as if the person they’re talking to is totally clueless. The term Mansplaining is a clever way of categorizing a man who’s having a condescending conversation and assuming his audience isn’t as knowledgeable as he is. He should try and read this book again, maybe he’ll learn something else.
The Opportunity That You Already Have
It’s a crazy concept to think that our spam mail can produce ironic situations like these. Dan Brown received this email about the chance to become a best-selling author. Little do they know he already is! This might be useful for a small-time writer, but not for someone on Brown’s level.
Just goes to show that they’re doing their email marketing all wrong! Then again this email has a shady look to it, there’s a chance this could be a scam. Hopefully by posing this he saved someone else from falling into their trap. You can’t believe everything you receive via email! If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
How To Get Fired In Two Seconds
Twitter is a platform that allows everybody to express themselves in any way they choose, as long as they follow community guidelines. But even then you should be aware of who you’re speaking to, otherwise, you might end up offending the wrong people. Or like in this case, completely screwing yourself over.
This person got their dream job working for NASA, like many of us do, they ran to social media to share the excitement and let everybody know. Little did she know that the person overseeing NASA would see the tweets and respond to the profanity. Let’s hope they learned a valuable lesson. When working for a big company you should always conduct yourself professionally on social media.
Putting People In Their Places
Did you know that Star Wars was first released in theaters in 1977? The original trilogy was so popular that it sparked an enormous fan base that spans over several generations. These days you can see people who didn’t even watch the movies wearing the franchise’s merchandise. And some people think that’s completely unacceptable.
Natalie Portman is a show business veteran who’s acted in dozens upon dozens of movies. With that many credits under her belt, it’s easy to forget she was part of the Star Wars universe as Padmé Amidala. This Tumblr user clearly didn’t know this when they were ranting about her wearing a Star Wars shirt, which in fact was actually a “Stop Wars” shirt in a similar font.
Talking To Your Girlfriend On Twitter
It seems like some Twitter users just want to start arguments and watch the world burn. Especially when they see men responding to tweets made by women. This guy decided to project his insecurities on someone with a sarcastic tweet. Little did he know that this guy was in a relationship with the woman he was commenting on.
We can only imagine how taken aback this guy must’ve been when he saw the reply. How do you even come back from a comment like that? Maybe this was his wake-up call to stop leaving snarky replies on random people’s tweets. No wonder this guy doesn’t have a profile picture, he needs to hide his shame.
Talk About an Awkward Interactions
Social media is the perfect platform for people who like stirring the pot. They have unlimited access to everybody who hasn’t blocked them yet and can say whatever they want without any repercussions. This “nosy aunty” just couldn’t bear the sight of this couple being happy and having a good time, she had to bring the ex-wife into this.
Only there’s a twist, she IS the ex-wife! She haunting her former husband on social media and making his life a living hell. Judging from how elegantly she finessed the topic into the tweet we’d have to say it’s not her first time doing something like this. She wants justice and she wants it now!
Do You Really Know Yourself?
Getting your paper reviewed can be stressful. Not only does it take a long time to go over everything you wrote, but their comments also aren’t always helpful. Petar Veličković is a Research Scientist at the University of Cambridge and as such he tends to publish scientific papers every now and then. He once received an incredibly baffling comment on one of his papers.
The reviewer claimed that Veličković didn’t understand the contributions of Veličković. Can you imagine being told that you don’t know what you contributed to the field? It seems like the reviewer had a completely different idea of who Veličković and what he was doing in his field of work.
It Takes One To Know One
From the very beginning, Youtube has provided us with an endless stream of entertaining content. Nowadays you can see people from all over the world making interesting videos about a variety of topics. Some of these creators decide to speak in English so they can appeal to a bigger audience. And sometimes people make assumptions based on the language they’re speaking.
This viewer was complimenting a creator on his impeccable pronunciation of German names. Turns out that his English was so good that the viewer didn’t even suspect that the guy might be German. He basically complimented him on being himself, pretty pretty if you think about it.
Making The World Go Round
With the help of the internet, people can get information about anything and everything with the click of a button. This kind of power results in some people becoming arrogant, thinking they know better than everybody else. And we all know that there’s nothing worse than someone on the internet who pretends they’re smarter than the rest of us.
This person thought they were being smug by belittling someone’s job and saying they were conned with false hopes and dreams. Luckily the creator wasn’t going to let it slide. Being an airport engineer is a tough job that requires years of study and practice. It quite literally makes the world go round.
Talk About Being Dead Wrong
If you ever feel like arguing with someone on the internet over a fictional character, make sure that person isn’t the creator of said character. Deadpool was already a popular character in Marvel’s universe, but it was only after his first movie that the character gained international fame. It didn’t hurt that he was portrayed by one of the most likeable guys in Hollywood.
As we know, the more popular something is the more people arguing about it. It’s funny how this guy could “quote” what the creator of Deadpool was saying but didn’t recognize him. We hope he was humbled after realizing who he was talking to and accepted that he was in the wrong.
Just Read The Damn Article
Is anybody else as confused about this conversation as we are? It feels like the guy read a part of the article, decided to post a question about it, and expected everybody to understand what he meant. You know a person doesn’t know what he’s talking about when the article’s author doesn’t even understand him.
Unfortunately, we don’t know if the conversation continued past that point. We hope this person was humbled as soon as he realized who he was talking to, but you never know with these people. Some of them can be so self-centered that they think they know more than the author!
We Forget That Celebrities Get Old Too
Friends was one of the most popular shows on television for the longest time. To this day continue watching and re-watching it. Parents who grew up on the show introduce it to their kids, helping the fanbase grow beyond the original viewers. But as time goes on, the actors age and these once-young characters are now old enough to have grandchildren!
To be honest, we think that Matt LeBlanc doesn’t look all that different from his Friends days. Though we can see how a little kid could mistake him for “Joey’s dad”. We’d love to see a spin-off where the kids of the original Friends are up to.
