The Next Damn You Auto Correct? Status Updates From Users Who Think Onion Articles Are True

onion believed.jpg

Just about everybody I know has gotten a laugh out of Damn You Auto Correct, the website that collects embarrassing iPhone messages, thanks to goofy and unintended automatic corrections by the iOS engine. If that is your cup of tea, then you might enjoy Literally Unbelievable, a site that collects Facebook updates from users who think articles from the Onion are true.

The Onion is a satire site that reports on real world events. I use the word “reports” loosely, since all of the stories on the Onion are made up. Not everyone understands that, though, as evidence by the entries on Literally Unbelievable. There you can find Facebook updates that express sadness over the Empire State Building’s No Hassle Suicide Day, and outrage at a senator’s affair with a horse.

For some reason, though, the site almost feels like a guilty pleasure. Perhaps it is because the humor come at someone else’s expense. Is this sort of thing your cup of tea?
