Incompetent Manager Tries To Blame Employee For His Own Use of Comic Sans

There are some employees who stick around because they do good work, and there are others whose longevity stems from their ability to blame everyone else for screw ups. This manager tried to get after a certain employee when he should have realized the mistake was his own, and it just proved his own incompetence. People have problems with technology, like this customer who thought electronic payment worked by putting checks into their computer.

Technically Correct Moments That Are Literally Accurate

Everyone worries so much about "empirical evidence" and "factual accuracy" as if some degree of clever, technical accuracy isn't at least 40% as good. Yeah, being technically not wrong has some degree of inherent reliance on puns, but it's like no one says: "It's better to be kind of correct than actually right most of the time."

Liars That Got Called Out Online For Their Shady Antics

As long as the internet's been around we've had dishonest people eager to inflate their egos through weaving tales of pure fiction. Some lies are nastier than others. Especially when you have people literally just trying to recycle the hard work of say, an artist, online. That's just gross. So, we love it when people step up online to call out the world's lot of lousy liars. 

A collection of times that people got called out for trying to lie online.

Karen Customer Insists On Being Totally Unreasonable, Pays The Price

If you go out of your way to be a generally insufferable human being to a perfectly kind and helpful individual who is working customer service, then you can pretty much count on something coming back to bite you in the butt. Sometimes, people are able to look past the toxic nonsense, but that takes some truly saintly patience. It sounds like this Omega Karen was on such an unbearable level of rudeness, that it was just bound to blow up in her face.

Proof That Kids Are Strange, Dumb People

There's no question that kids are stupid and weird. We remember being stupid and weird. We remember having ridiculous beliefs. We remember thinking that the teacher lived at the school and that adults knew what they were talking about. We remember drawing mustaches on ourselves with permanent marker. Kids are just dumb and weird, and time only sort of remedies that.

Some Intriguing and Adorable Frog Butts

It doesn't get much more straightforward than this. As for as goofy animals go, this one probably tops dogs sleeping in awkward positions. Frogs are interesting creatures, and they're not exactly the kind of thing you'd expect to think about having butt-like appendages, but good on them for being themselves. Hippity-Hoppity, let those beats droppity.

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.

Department Manager Assumes Monitors Don't Need Computers

How on earth did this dude end up in the position of power that they did? It truly boggles the mind. Like, we're talking about a department manager who somehow didn't understand that monitors also need computers (system units). And from that misunderstanding blossomed a pricey fail that just kind of hurts to picture. The department manager's jaw must've sunk to the floor in defeat. For some more tech support drama, check out this customer who didn't trust a tech support employee's advice, and then lived to regret it weeks later

A department manager wrongly assumes that monitors don't need computers, and then learns otherwise.

Karen Presenter Demands Crappier Hotel Booking, Gets It

It's often worth it to defer to the person whose job it is to schedule things, but Karen was sure about what she wanted, so by gum she got it. It's almost like this rude customer who demanded no ice and got less than that. Karens have a rough track record with the bureaucracy of hotels, for example, this Karen who wanted a late check out and got rejected.

Puns To Humiliate Words Themselves

Words have it too easy with everyone taking them too seriously all the time. That's why it's important to show words who's boss with some punintentionally punishing puns of worldly wordplay. These words think they're safe, hiding in their sentences and all. Well no more, it's time to debase words and play around with them in a display of total irreverence of their intended meaning. So, puns.

Dumb Design Failures That Somehow Got Through

It's hard to design something completely without getting in the weeds a little, but some design failures deserve some blame. Maybe it's creating an impossible maze on the back of a cereal box. Maybe it's drapes that look like they were repurposed from a murder scene. There are thousands of ways to mess up, and these design failures could have used a second look.

People Who Proved They Weren't The Dumb One

More often than not, the more ready someone is to call someone else an idiot, the higher chance they themselves are the true moron. People will double down and say some wildly dumb things, but rarely do we get to prove these people wrong. It's at least a little nice to challenge the absurd things people say in complete seriousness.

Man Mistakes Credit Card For Gift Card, Expensive Fail Ensues

The recklessness of blind ignorance is a mystifying thing to behold.

Not-Incorrect Moments of Technical Accuracy

Cleverness and intelligence are two very different things. The difference can be spotted freely lurking throughout technically correct dumb jokes and moments. Honestly, just knowing things can be boring. Setting up oneself up with some potentially confusing technically accurate logical acrobatics or painfully stupid literalisms is the way to go.

Boss Tries To Take Priority Over Army, Doesn't Succeed

There are many kinds of incompetent managers out there. There's one memorable kind who's totally convinced that work takes precedence over every other function of life, like this boss who threatened to fire an employee over jury duty. Maybe it's because they think they're the king of their own little world? Time and time again, once another form of authority comes knocking, they crumple into a heap.
