The photo is actually real, but it’s misleading.
The photo shows the spiders from close up, making them appear huge. Camel spiders are real, but they are actually much smaller than the photo makes them look (about five inches in diameter). They also can’t run at amazing speeds or jump onto the belly of a camel. They aren’t even poisonous nor are they even spiders! They belong to the order solifugae, and are kind of somewhere between scorpions and spiders.
Unfortunately there is no dog the size of a horse.
A few years ago this photo was making the rounds. It shows a massive dog next to his owner and a horse and claims it is the largest dog in the world, an English Mastiff named Hercules. As much as we may want to see a dog an adult human can ride, this photo is manipulated, this dog is not really this huge and also, not even an English Mastiff. It’s actually a Neapolitan Mastiff (like Fang in Harry Potter!) and while they do get very large, like over 150 pounds large, they don’t get horse-sized.
Donald Trump didn’t really give an infamous People magazine interview in 1998 saying he’d run as a Republican.
During the 2016 election, a quote by Donald Trump was going around that said “If I were to run, I’d run as a Republican. They are the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie and they’d still eat it up.” This is a fake quote. He never said this to People Magazine. Trump’s said a lot of dumb stuff, but this isn’t one of those things.
As much as you want your toddler to share in your Happy Hour fun, you cannot actually buy this Fisher Price playset that looks like a bar.
People were very upset when this photo of a Fisher Price Happy Hour Playset started circulating. It’s definitely not a completely appropriate toy for children, although, come on, you’d buy it. Unfortunately you can’t because it was a joke made by comedian Amiri King that people took seriously.
This gorilla did not get 20,000 votes in the 2016 presidential election.
In May of 2016 a young boy fell into a gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. A gorilla named Harambe picked him up and started dragging him around. Keepers were forced to shoot the gorilla to save the boy. After his death, Harambe became a huge internet meme, internet users called for justice for the dead gorilla. After awhile, it mostly became an annoying ironic thing to get attention.
