They say that honesty is the best policy for a reason. Getting caught in a lie is super embarrassing. Keep reading to see some people who lied so hard that their pants are burning up (you know what they say about liars and the flammability of their pants).
"I Took This By Accident"
This girl posted this selfie on Facebook with the caption, "I took this photo on accident bc I got distracted help."
Girl, you absolutely did not take this picture by accident.
Real Eyes Realize Real Lies
Jaden Smith may have been onto something with his famous tweet, "real eyes realize real lies."
Those eyes are definitely not real. This is bad editing at its absolute finest.
Before And After
This person decided to call out a nail salon when that nail salon did absolutely nothing wrong.
Luckily, her friends were quick to call her out in the comments. They nailed it.
Not Channing Tatum
This kid posted a photo of himself next to a photo of Channing Tatum.
He captioned it, "people tell me I look like Channing Tatum all the time." Umm... Nope.
Your Baby Is Doing What?
No 2-month-old baby in the history of the world has ever told a story.
Maybe he's telling her a story with his eyes or something, because he's definitely not doing it with his words.
That Thigh Gap
I'm sorry, but nobody has a thigh gap that perfectly rectangular. This girl is not good at Photoshop.
She isn't fooling anybody. Thigh gaps are overrated, anyway. The leggings are cute, though.
Not Her Car
This girl is showing off her new ride, only, that's definitely not her car.
The logo on her key doesn't match the logo on the hood of the car. She definitely got caught in a lie.
An "Accidental" Post
This girl claims to have posted this selfie accidentally. There are a lot of steps required to post a picture on the internet.
Do you think she wrote that caption "accidentally" too?
Caught In The Act
This person thought that he could lie to his girlfriend about his whereabouts. She knew better than to trust a liar like him.
He was caught red-handed living his best life at the club.
The Sun Is Behind Him
This guy says that the sun is in his eyes, but based on the way that his shadow is positioned, it seems like the sun is behind him.
The sun doesn't lie, son.
The Definition Of Stupid
We can see your score, Karen. It's 85, not 125.
You'd have to have a pretty low IQ to get caught lying about your IQ score on a public platform.
How Subs Are Advertised
A lot of work goes into making those Subway ads look appetizing. The subs don't look as good in person, but hey, at least they still taste great.
Not a very Instagram-worthy meal, though.
A Lifting Selfie
This man went to great lengths to get this photo of himself lifting some very heavy weights. We all know what happened here.
He was really dedicated to getting the perfect shot.
Yeah, of course glitter looks nice on Pinterest, but it also inevitably gets everywhere—including on your literal eyeball.
Stay away from glitter unless you're a professional. This stuff is highkey dangerous.
Expectations Vs. Reality
The photo on the left is how the dress was advertised, and the photo on the right is what it showed up looking like.
Somebody was not telling the truth.
That Looks Like A TV
This guy is claiming to be at the actual Super Bowl, but the quality of that picture is telling a different story.
He's definitely just standing in front of his TV screen.
So Many Yolks
This person claims that all of the eggs he bought at Costco had two yolks inside them. Did they also have a double dose of egg whites?
He definitely just cracked two eggs into each of those wells.
No Makeup Monday
This girl said that she took a no-makeup selfie, but her face is telling a different story. She is definitely wearing both eyeliner and lip gloss in this photo.
She could have done a better job filling in her eyebrows if we're being honest...
That's Just A Food Baby
This woman thought she could trick people into thinking she was a weight-loss guru by taking "progress" pics in her garage.
She didn't think it was necessary to change her clothes or her position or the background of the photo at all, though...
This person thought he could manufacture a viral photo. He kind of did, but his plan backfired.
Now everyone knows that he engineered the whole thing (and that he's kind of dumb).
Go Back To School
This person thought they were being very smart when they put people who had read The Great Gatsby on blast.
Unfortunately, they got caught in their own trap. Think before you speak, people.
This person tried to fool everyone into thinking that she had been on a trip to Paris.
She forgot that the Sydney Opera House is clearly visible in the background of this photo.
Fresh Out The Shower
Um, does this girl not wash her face in the shower? Because there is a lot of makeup still on her eyes and mouth and cheeks and eyebrows.
Somebody teach this girl how to scrub.
Those abs look extremely photoshopped. We love how this guy tried to explain away the color difference by saying that he had been working out too hard.
Yeah, nobody believes you.
That Is Not A Painting
Either this guy is lying, or some girl lied to him and he totally believed her.
Either way, this is a pretty dumb move. This is clearly not a painting.
A Secret Photo
This guy claims that some girl took this picture of him sleeping on a plane.
We all know that he pretended to be sleeping while he took the photo of himself...
That's More Than A Scratch
This sticker says "'tis but a scratch," but we all know that a dent that size is way more than a scratch.
This reminds me of that "'tis but a flesh wound" Monty Python skit.
Sitting At Home
This person tried to flex on Facebook, but she got called out when somebody who lives with her told all of her friends that she had just had a long conversation about toilet paper.
Were they sitting next to each other on the couch posting this?
Protected By A Wolf
This guy's son posted this picture on Facebook with the caption, "This wolf protected my dad while he was out hunting bears. True story."
That's most likely not a true story...
Wendy Is A Straight Up Savage
If you don't know that Wendy's has the most savage Twitter account by now, you've been living under a rock.
They go after their enemies with a vengeance and won't take any crap from anyone. No one is safe
Okay, So That Backfired
This comment probably depreciated the sunglasses by 50%, and it's all because of a lazy error.
Also, could he not have found a more appealing backdrop for this picture instead of the floor of his truck?
"Sorry I Was Late, There Was So Much Traffic"
Is there a better excuse in the world as to why you were late then to blame traffic? The quick and easy answer to that is NO.
That is, unless you get caught with a reflection of a road with no traffic.
To Be Fair, He Didn't Say He Made A Lot Of Money
He's right. Money changes people.
Those friends that didn't ride with you when you were making $4.50 an hour delivering papers now all of a sudden want to show up.
It's All About The Story
It's safe to say that everyone has their own celebrity run-in story.
The only person who can debunk your story is the celebrity themselves which doesn't happen often...but when it does it's hilarious.
The Beach Mentality
The power of believing is very real. If this guy truly believes that he's laying on a beach soaking up the sun, then he's laying on the beach soaking up the sun.
No questions asked.
Any Man Who Can't Grow A Beard Can Relate
This guy probably didn't expect things to get this hairy. You would believe it's an actual beard but you can tell by the image that it's fake.
It's hard to grow a face full of beard overnight.
Sunglasses Reflections Are Out Here Ruining Relationships
A word of advice for a situation like this — use a female co-worker's name. The glasses are an obvious gateway to your little white lie.
Hopefully, this isn't the iceberg that sinks your relationship.
They Look Practically Identical
You would think that she might try to change her outfit or something.
But no, she just slapped a black and white filter on there and hoped that everyone was going to buy it.
Does No One Watch Movies Anymore?
People love to think that they're all cool and edgy because they are part of this nerd culture that allows them to shame people who just don't "get it."
That is, until they end up being completely wrong.
Well, That's Embarrassing
He could have just let her have this moment, but no, he had to go and comment on her Instagram and out her.
Now everyone knows she still needs her mom to fight her battles for her.
Seems Like A Rookie Mistake
You would think that, if he is going to try and catfish people, he would put a little bit of effort into doing it properly.
If you're going to do it, just commit and do it right.
So How Long Was It Really, Rob?
If you're going to lie about something that can be quickly googled and verified, you should probably make it a little bit more difficult to figure out that you're lying.
No one believes Rob.
OK, first off, that couch does not look like it is slightly used.
Secondly, how are we supposed to take anything this person says seriously after seeing that there is a cat in the background?
That's A Big Yikes Right There
This guy thinks that the world is his oyster and he can do whatever he wants.
After getting kicked out for his bad behavior, he blamed the staff for being biased against him because he's a veteran.
There Is A Lot To Unpack Here
Does this person make a habit of flexing that hard when they try to screenshot their phone? ...Without using their hands, I might add.
You're not fooling anyone, and no one cares about your hair.
Don't Blame The Dog Like That
That poor dog is just sitting there like a good boy looking at his mom without knowing that he's being blamed for the heinous crime of pulling the stuffing out of a pillow.
It couldn't possibly be him!
That's Basically A Mic Drop
Please, Mark Hamill, tell us what you really thought about Watchmen so we can correct this injustice that has been brought upon you by this misguided Twitter account who thinks they know about movies.
They were called out on this one!
