It boggles the mind that this "debate" actually managed to make it onto TV. And while we're at it, where's the other person who could go to bat to defend the idea that the moon's actually just a big lit up cheeseball? As far as compelling theories go, let's be real: that one just takes the cake.

I mean, let's be real. There's something about this version that's honestly more appealing. It could be the steady procession of fails in a play that was seemingly destined for doom from its very onset.

Employee Gets Pet Fox, Big Stink Ensues, Boss Calls Her Out, She Complains

Something is awry in this scenario. Of course, people should be encouraged to embrace whatever pet they've chosen to add to their home. Even if it's something atypical like a pet fox. But if you decide to roll with the fox for your pet, it sounds like you've got to go the extra mile to ensure that you're not carrying around that fox's stink with you wherever you go. Unfortunately, this employee assumed a defensive stance when she was called out.

Dumbest Things People Were Paid To Do

Money can cause all kinds of trouble. There's something hardwired into the human DNA that reacts when there's money flying around, that can end up manifesting in people doing some truly dumb stuff. Especially if you find yourself in a place in life where you're hurting real bad for some extra change. Or, maybe you get particularly lucky like some of these folks and end up being paid to do absolutely nothing. That corporate money is just stupid money.

Choosy Beggar Tries To Severely Lowball Wedding Caterer

On a strange level it's almost intriguing to witness what kinds of bullish displays of entitlement can present themselves when a wildly irrational choosy beggar is stirring up the pot. Just the way that a choosy beggar goes about rationalizing their lowballing behavior. It's something else, man. This particular choosy beggar was doomed from the very start. Good for the wedding caterer for not getting tripped up for a second, and standing their ground. For some more juicy content involving a wildly entitled human being, check out the time that an entitled customer demanded a salt-free burger, got just that, and pitched a fit

Client Drags Ticket Out For Days, Didn't Have Her Device Plugged In

Our hearts truly go out to the people in this world that are working tech support. By its very nature the standard tech support job unfortunately brings with it the inevitable series of impossibly testy and ignorant customers. It's honestly a wonder that some of these people are able to make it in this day and age with things being as technologically-infused as they are. It sounds like this particular client wasted people's time to no end, and couldn't have cared less about it. For another ridiculous tech support tale check out the time that a customer believed that the internet literally runs on magic

Man Ignores Fact That Girlfriend Skips Outings Because Of Budget, Asks If He's In The Wrong

The fact that this poor girl worked an extra job just to try to keep up with an affluence and inconsiderate family is just a tad bit heart breaking. On top of that, it sounds like this guy is just about as clueless as they come. Based off what he shared regarding his own financial situation, it doesn't seem beyond reason to suggest that he could've helped her out a bit. But on, instead it was just pure confusion on his part over why she wasn't joining the various outings. Um, maybe because the money was tight. 

Man doesn't notice that his girlfriend skips out on outings because she's too broke to join.

Wife Announces Pregnancy, Husband Assumes It's A Joke, Cringe Ensues

It sounds like this guy's wife was quite the trickster. The problem with repeatedly joking that you're pregnant is that eventually you'll end up losing some much needed credibility in the process. This scenario in particular brings to mind the whole "boy who cried wolf" predicament. Could the husband have kept his cool just a bit more? Sure. Also though, it sounds like he'd hit a breaking point of his own for when it came to being played around with.

The Dumbest Things That Smart People Have Done

Just because someone has the "book smarts" doesn't mean that they're not staggeringly clueless in other parts of life that require nothing more than some common sense. It can be beneficial for the world's brainiacs to have their egos put in check every now and again. Otherwise you run the risk of having to deal with some people that are sold on the naive idea that they know everything of importance in this world. That's just not an outlook that's good for anyone.

Work is already hard enough as it is without having to deal with a terribly incompetent manager who clearly never should've been put in their position of power in the first place.

Sister-In-Law Announces Pregnancy At Sibling's Engagement Party, Gets Called Out

We absolutely get that the excitement and wild anticipation that can go into a pregnancy can render people a bit senseless. However, there's still got to be some kind of commitment toward upholding just a bit, a little bit of social awareness. In the case of this sister-in-law it seems that the social awareness was pretty much entirely lacking. So, she ended up being called out. Can't imagine that it was an easy conversation to have, but it also seems like it was necessary. For some more wedding drama check out some of people's craziest wedding fails over here

Dense Choosy Beggar Won't Grasp Meaning Of Rejection

Trying to sell your things or pick up work online is easier said than done. There are unfortunate seas of entitled choosy beggars out there that are all blinded by such dauntingly thick clouds of delusional ignorance that reaching reasonable negotiations is near impossible. This particular choosy beggar clearly wasn't grasping what the guy on the other end of the conversation was trying to get across to him; and that's that the amount of money being offered for the work being provided was in no way going to work out. Check out some more entitled people and their uproarious demands over here.

Boyfriend Expects Girlfriend To Contribute $200 To His Bud's Wedding Gift

It sounds like this guy is in dire need of taking a moment to reassess his expectations of what constitutes a reasonable wedding gift. Or rather, what his girlfriend should contribute. They're clearly in the early stages of their relationship, and he's already out there waving some red flags. Naturally, the moral judges of Reddit's AITA community were in agreement that he was just a tad bit out of line. For another ridiculous post from the realm of wedding gossip, check out this post about a craigslist ad seeking a date for a Karen mother-in-law

Most of us have endured those moments at work where we've been tasked with infuriatingly mindless, nonsensical tasks that effortlessly make use question the meaning of our existence. It can be exceedingly difficult to just give yourself over to the experience, and make the most out of it. Well, this guy could serve as an inspiration of sorts to all of us. He left it all on the field, and then some, man. I wouldn't be surprised if he thought he was a cat at one point during this Oscarworthy performance.

Traveling by plane can be a daunting experience for some folks. It's completely understandable. You're hopping on board a giant winged metal tube that oftentimes requires you to sit in close quarters with perfect strangers. On top of that the series of rules that every passenger is required to follow can unfortunately be overlooked by the more entitled, downright insensitive, and straight up belligerent folks in this world. When that happens you can end up having to weather a profoundly frustrating delayed flight. Delayed flights can really upset that otherwise relaxing flow of life. Your schedule that was once perfectly set up for the day can be turned upside down. Clearly, this woman wasn't thinking about how her antics would impact the people around her. Suffice to say, they really let her have it when they were forced to exit the plane.
