50 Times When People Tried Their Best To Be Smart But Failed Miserably

Everybody has their own share of embarrassing moments that they want to forget forever. And nothing can be more humiliating than failing at trying to act smart. There are certain points in time when we assume that we know everything and we start blabbering about stupid things. And when we realize our idiocy, it’s too late to take it back because the damage has been done. Indeed, that kind of embarrassment is unbearable. Luckily for some, their embarrassing moments seem to pass by in time. Although the memories would still haunt them from time to time, most people would eventually forget that unfortunate event.

However, there are people who are scarred for life in absolute shame. We’re all aware of the convenience of social media and the internet, right? If you want to make an impression of being brilliant and intelligent, there’s no other place better than social media. True enough, online platforms became a favorite stomping ground for know-it-all and smarty-pants to broadcast pieces of their minds. More often than not, these people turned out being ridiculous and silly instead. To make it worse, their foolishness isn’t something that is easily forgotten because it is on social media. If anything, their hilarious folly is constantly being shared online thus resulting to a wider degree of embarrassment.

As much as we want to feel sorry for these obnoxiously self-assertive people, we can’t help but laugh at their failed attempts. If you’re having a hard time, think that their embarrassing moments are much even worse than yours. So, let these people serve as a lesson to everybody. Think before you speak. And think before you press that ‘Post’ button because your words may be used against you in a very humiliating way. We’ve compiled the funniest examples of people who tried to win at social media by acting smart but ended up being the laughingstock instead. Laugh your hearts out with these facepalm-worthy embarrassing moments shared on social media.
