People Who Missed The Joke By Light-years

Contrary to popular belief, a lot of folks are pretty clever. But sadly, there are just as many people who aggressively won't get the joke. As a general principle, when someone says something incomprehensibly dumb but it also has a whole bunch of likes or people responding with any form of "haha" then it's reasonable to assume that that thing they said is some kind of joke. You don't want to be the kind of person responding to a joke as if it's an assertion, or you just might become one of the many ranks of mockable people who desperately didn't get the joke.

People Who Desperately Didn't Get The Joke

Sure the internet has the potential to connect us with savvy, like-minded individuals, but it also gives us more deaf ears for jokes to fall on. Maybe it's poor reading comprehension or maybe it's not wanting to get the joke in the first place. It's amusing, but also kind of sad to see so many people aggressively not getting the joke.

People Who Aggressively Didn't Get The Joke

Most of us have a decent idea of how jokes work, or we are at least somewhat adept of seeing the signs of when something is a joke. It would be rough walking around this world just thinking everyone is stupid and wrong all the time. To further confuse the literal minded, here are some technically accurate moments that aren't wrong. And for some straight up dumbness, here are some facepalm moments from humanity's beacons of stupid.

Things People Wrongfully Think Are Scams

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to share things they're aware of that people wrongfully think are scams, but actually are nothing of the sort. Those crazy things like the dentist and sites that require you to enter your credit card information before you can purchase their legitimate products, are actually just around to help you. The paranoid suspicions are fair in a world that can feel like it's just trying to pull one over on you, too often. 

Things that people wrongfully believe are scams just trying to take their money.
