You know that awkward moment when someone says something stupid and you laugh... and then you realize they were being 100% serious? Here are the internet's most awkward "shouldn't have laughed" moments.
This piece is based on an AskReddit thread. Link on the last page.
1. The hands-free joystick.
I was hanging out with a couple of friends one day. We were just talking and we ended up on the subject of our first time pleasuring ourselves.
One of my friend begins his story. First thing he told us was that for the first two months after he started, he did not use his hands. We thought he was joking until he gave us a dead serious look. All of us immediately asked how did he get off with no hands. He described that he would sit down and use his thighs to stimulate himself until he would finish.
To this day the saying "look mom! no hands" has a completely different meaning to us.
2. A helping handout.
An old roommate wanted me to start paying more in rent because he was trying to save up to buy himself a house.
3. They're taking the hobbits to Isengard.
I asked a coworker what his son's name was, and he answered “Legolas.” After two seconds of laughing, I realized he wasn't laughing. His son is actually named Legolas.
4. MK Ultra creepy.
I went on a date with a dude in high school and he told me that he had astral projected himself into my dreams for the past few weeks to "groom" me sexually for him.
I don’t know man.
5. What's in a name?
My friend told me that she was naming her daughter “Bunny Petunia.” (continued...)
