Most of us are familiar with the satirical stylings of "news" sites like Clickhole and The Onion that bring us that hilarious political and social commentary we all crave from time to time. Unfortunately however, some poor dummies just never got the "fake news" memo.

If there was ever an appropriate time to utter the old Southern saying "bless your heart," it's right now. It's probably safe to say that most people in the English-speaking world are familiar with the troll-y ways of publications like The Onion or Clickhole, yet some naive souls, like the following, never got the memo. It's totally okay to laugh now and feel sorry for them later.
Just when you think people can't stoop low enough, they respond seriously to an Onion article. Is it a lack of critical thinking skills? Poor reading comprehension? Zero sense of humor? Bogus knowledge of the real world and an inability to distinguish between fact from fiction? Okay, yeah it's probably a combination of all of these. Anyway if you liked these then here's more times people assumed The Onion was trying to be a reputable News source.
