We have no idea what kind of hurricane of pure chaotic nonsense was rushing through this man's brain as he went about giving an "interview." Let's just say that this video will test people's tolerance for cringe like never before.

Sorely Mistaken People Not Getting Satire

Even though satirical news has been around for decades, people still have a really hard time parsing out fact from fiction. Sometimes they'll write-off a absurdly funny headline as fake news. Other times they'll react with appropriate shock after reading a "report" that the gates of hell have been opened. It's funny, but also kinda really disappointing when sadly mistaken people don't understand satire.

People who mistakenly believed satirical news | THEHARDTIMES.NE Friends Tearfully Loot Gamer's Corpse at Funeral Pay Respects Nobody should be touching deceased persons belongings other than next kin is HUGE disrespect family. Doesnt matter sign respect supposedly shows s not spectators decide or do. this is satire article lol

Sadly Mistaken People Who Didn't Understand Satire

People have a really hard time deciphering what is real news and what is obviously a joke. Who knew the unintended consequence of satirical news would be your grandma thinking the rapture happened. Whether it's a state of uncanny gullibility or just poor reading comprehension, a lot of mistaken people do not understand satire.

Sometimes the best way to fight ignorance is with a hearty heaping of pure and unadulterated sarcasm. This weatherman clearly hit his breaking point, and decided to let the people have it.

Oh good old Florida, you are ever full of surprises. In this case, we have a poor woman who was awoken by a raccoon straight up posted up in her Christmas tree. Like, are you kidding me? So many questions. We're just glad it all worked out, and that she was able to safely remove the raccoon from the premises.

It seems like the Dalai Lama was ready to unleash some belly laughter regardless of what joke came out of that eager news anchor's mouth.

Last June the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was giving a press briefing on a plan to help homeowners when one of those very same homeowners came out to tell everyone he just reseeded. It's gotta make you feel pretty powerful to be able to tell the head of your government to stop stepping on your grass.

In all fairness the Balloonfest of '86 was in no way one of those tiny mistakes. It was a historical fail. What did they think would happen when they went ahead and released a record number of balloons into the atmosphere? Obviously things like gnarly traffic jams and an interference with air traffic were going to result from this mindless move. Must've looked cool for a hot second before everything basically came undone.

It's the sound he makes that really brings this whole ridiculous video to a new level. Kudos to the newscaster though for somehow not swearing.

Well, somebody put a big metal monolith up somewhere in Southeast Utah. Like everything else, it's probably gonna end up being an ad for a new Marvel movie. We'd love to say aliens or ancient prophecies aren't off the table, but for now it looks like a big piece of metal some artist or publicity team crammed into the ground.

How did it ever come to this? Who had this idea in the first place? It's an absolute disaster, and we can't look away.

Ken Dilanian found himself in an embarrassing predicament after technical difficulties led him to use some out-of-context choice words on air. It's not like we haven't heard anything like this before, but it feels nice to see them said on live TV. Gotta love that long-ass pause.

It's hard to tell what's going on here, but by the looks of it, this guy is giving an interview when a car speeds through the scene, nearly interrupting him. If it were any worse, he might have not had the time to take another drag.

It's as if that zombie on the left just sneaked up on stage, and tried to pretend like he was a part of the show.

A dude recently got into Miller Park baseball field through an unlocked door, found a tractor, messed around, and just kinda left. Security cameras caught the attempt. He said he was trying to write his name, but it looks like a fruitless effort.

A driver was arrested after jumping their car over a drawbridge in Detroit. That's already wild news, but the news is made all the more enthralling by the reporter's voice. It's like he's trying to do an American correspondent voice with a British accent. Naturally, the results are pure gold.
