10 Viral Images That Took The Internet By Storm, But Were Actually Fake

Internet is a funny, funny place. People claim that everything on the internet is false, and yet, they almost always believe everything that gets circulated on the internet!

And some extremely clever but don’t-have-much-work-in-hand people make ample use of this gullibility of netizens. Their sure shot way of having a good laugh at others’ expense often includes a simple technique, posting a fake Photoshopped picture on the net and then seeing people go gaga over the fake photo.

These 10 photos took the internet by storm, and people, fools that they are, took a long time to realize that these were actually fake!
