Nobody is innocent when it comes to exaggerating things we’ve seen, heard, or participated in. Like, that smashing b-day party of yours in an abandoned castle that got everyone talking. Except that it was your uncle’s porch and the only guests were your twin cousins from Wyoming.
We’ve all been there, done that, but sometimes things go from exaggerated to plain made-up in an instant. And there’s a subreddit called r/thatHappened dedicated entirely, as its description says, to “true stories that are 100% true and actually happened.” You get the sarcasm.
As for evidence, the 1.3 million members of the community are sharing screenshots of people lying their hearts out with a straight face. Trust me, the result is totally hilarious.
