Funny Facebook status updates have become a trend after many YouTube users began exploiting a select handful of them to give their viewers a good laugh. Call it what you want, it works. Some things that people come up with and post online are just funny; no ifs, ands or buts. Here are ten Facebook statuses that exploited internet humor at its finest, sometimes crudest, and definitely funniest.
This is the kind of joke people feel awful for laughing at, but laughter takes place nonetheless. Peter here as decided to make a joke and in doing so, he just happened to use an alleged “fat kid” as the punchline. Provided nobody is actually picturing a child on fire, the joke itself is chuckle-worthy. Of course, with the offense meters rising higher than ever in this day and age, this is perhaps not the best way to try to be funny. Anybody who perceives themselves as overweight can and probably will take offense to this ‘joke’. That said, if Peter is prepared for the possible backlash, there is no telling how many more jokes he may come up with.
Cruel Or Clever?
This person’s gullible Facebook friends aren’t too happy, but any other onlooker (or friends who did not fall for this trap) are undoubtedly entertained. Facebook does not recognize passwords and then take the liberty of changing them to asterisks, but this user has done a rather effective job of teaching people that there is no reason why they should give their online passwords to anybody, even if it seems harmless. All seriousness aside, this is not a bad way to conduct a social experiment on gullibility or even intelligence quotients. Anybody who fell for this trick should probably start taking a second look at things before plunging in head first and they should go change their passwords at the very least.
