Cringeworthy Times People Made Up Ridiculous Lies

There are a few reasons to pretend that you said a perfectly timed one-liner and then roundhouse kicked a fellow Starbucks customer in the face. One reason is that you're looking to lie to the world in exchange for some totally undeserved attention. Another might be that you want to imagine that you're the type of person who knows martial arts. Social media lets people express themselves, and sometimes the selves people try to express aren't that great. People also use the internet to make up crap about their intelligence, like these cringe-worthy brain-lords who think they're total geniuses.

Son Discovers Mom Lied About Allergies to Keep Him on Strict Diet

Often parents are trying to keep their kids safe and healthy as best they can, but it seems like lying to your kid about a life-threatening allergy isn't the right way to go about it. It's kinda reminiscent of these vegans who were called fake because they feed their cat meat. Sometimes the exact opposite of this happens, like when this Tumblr user realized they actually had allergies.

Deceptive Ads and Bad Products Designed by Jackholes

The idea behind having a good product is that more people will buy it, but sadly, companies still lie and abuse their users and customers with all sorts of manipulative products designed by jerks.
