27 Funny And Sad Times People Didn't Understand Satire

It could be poor reading comprehension, gullibility, or just a failure to check sources, but many people have a problem with understanding satire. Even when it's not subtle, some folks really just miss the point of satire, or don't want to get it. Sometimes it's funny to see someone react with outrage over a fake story about NASA shooting a chimp into the sun. Other times it's just kind of pitiful, like when someone uses a joke as a source in an actual article.
