20 Oblivious People Who Totally Missed The Joke
When communicating online, it can be difficult to figure out what kind of tone people are using. This can make it difficult for some people to know what is a joke and what is serious. In some cases, the confusion is genuine and can be understood. Other times the joke or sarcasm is so obvious it's painful when someone doesn't understand or get it. Reddit's /r/woooosh is used for times like these. "Woooosh" is the term used online when the joke just seems to fly straight over someone's head, no matter how obvious it may seem.
It is rather embarrassing to witness this happen to someone, but on the bright side for them, usually they are also too oblivious to even be embarrassed about it. Usually they just assume everyone else is wrong and they're the super smart ones for correcting them. More power to them, I suppose. While these situations happen all the time and in real life too, here are just 20 moments of people missing the joke entirely.
