1. You are a DC cast or crew member (let’s be honest, I’m pretty sure we’re 90% of the readership of this blog)
2. You might be half as susceptible to clickbait as I am.
I don’t know what it is, but Buzzfeed just knows how to get me on their site. 20 things I’ve got to do in my 20s? 9 ways I’ll know chocolate is my favorite flavor? 7 Disney princesses most likely to date the characters of the Avengers??? (Bruce Banner and Belle are clearly #1 by the way) I’ve simply got to know.
The best are the “He buys her roses and gets on one knee… and you won’t believe what happens next” videos. It’s obvious what happens: he proposes. But for some reason every time I expect something crazy to transpire, and watch the clip anyway. I guess it’s just that I’m gullible. I’m talking afraid-to-eat-Gushers-as-a-kid-because-my-head-would-turn-into-a-fruit gullible. (But come on, who doesn’t hear the poor boy in this video screaming, “Help me man!”)
It gets worse. I once cried at a friends 12th birthday party because when the magician/clown said he was going to to turn me into a cow for milk to make a magic cake, I actually believed him. Turns out I just needed to moo, but I thought I was literally turning into a one cow wife. (ba da chhhhh)
To top it off, on my 8th birthday I got a subscription to Astronomy magazine, and in reading one of the satirical articles without understanding the satire, I somehow believed—for a year—that 6-fingered, Rachmaninoff-playing, wormhole-travelling aliens had already visited Earth. I was amazed that I never heard about it in the news until I figured out the truth.
Anyways, I’ve got to go so I can work on my fanfiction, Beauty and the Hulk: Carrying the Banner. But what about you guys? What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever fallen for? Tell me in the comments below, and one of you will win an ALL EXPENSES PAID TRIP TO CANCUN!!!! (Just kidding. But tell me anyways!)
