People Who Took Being Brutally Honest to the Next Level | 22 Words

We all know the importance of being honest. Anyone who has watched their fair share of courtroom dramas knows that the good guys always tell the truth.

But there's a big difference between being honest and being brutally honest.

Sometimes, the truth should be delivered with a modicum of delicacy and tact, rather than shouted from the rooftops with no thought to whether it might offend.

The people featured in the following photos might not have the most gentle method of delivery, but what they lack in tact, they more than make up for in humor.

Next time you want to tell the truth, take a second to remember the people in these photos. Either they'll convince you to go with a bit of a white lie, or you'll want to stand in your truth — to hilarious effect.

I know the person who wrote this ad claims to hate this car, but you can't deny there's a little bit of love there if you read between the lines.

"This home is a turd."

Pretty amazing how this turd of a home still costs $160,000. Think they're willing to negotiate?
