It doesn’t really take all that much to fool people, does it?

The answer to that question is a big, fat NO.

People are pretty gullible and, as you probably already know, almost no one ever takes the 15 seconds of time required to do a Google search to see if headlines from The Onion or other satirical websites are true or false.

But that’s the world we live in right now…people want everything to happen instantly and they don’t want to do any actual work…but at least we can laugh at them because they believe that fake headlines (that are fake ON PURPOSE) are real!

Let’s take a look at some examples of people who believed that satirical headlines were 100% legit.
