This Woman Came Up With The Perfect Prank For When A Guy Asks You To 'Send Nudes'

You know how it is when you’re having a nice text conversation with someone you have a crush on or are just starting to date. Or maybe some Internet stranger who slides into your DMs. They all make the same demand.

“NUDES,” they cry. They want pictures of your naked body and feel completely entitled to having them. There’s certainly nothing wrong with sharing some sexy pics with someone if that’s your jam, but the sheer number of dudes who ask makes it seem like they’re all involved in some sort of scavenger hunt. It’s annoying.

Twitter user @saucynatt shared her own solution to the Send Nudes request, posting a conversation with some unsuspecting, but eager, fellow in which she just kept writing, “Attachment: 1 Image” over and over rather than sending a file. Much to his disappointment, nothing resembling a naked woman appeared:

It really worked a bunch of times:

The tweet went viral, and it’s apparently not that uncommon to mess with men whose brains are deadened by their desire to see digital areola. There were other pranks in the replies; some suggested the download that will never download:

Or the message that never sends:

But most just complimented her on the extremely good troll:

There’s nothing that seems to stop men asking for nudes, so at least enjoy the troll.

This Professor's Viral Tweets Explain Trump's Social Media Use

In the opinion of many, Donald Trump was able to win the election because of a carefully targeted social media campaign that focused on building a database of users and attacking those with ads and media, rather than focusing on pre-existing demographics.

By constantly vilifying Hillary Clinton, Trump managed to not only get people who liked and supported him to be mobilized to vote, but get a lot of voters who were on the fence to believe that anything would be better than voting for Hillary. To this day, I have family members who admit that they think Trump is an absolute moron and is unfit to be President, but that their hands were tied because Hillary was so evil they couldn’t vote for her.

As President, Trump hasn’t been able to do much aside from make headlines for erroneous, offensive, and borderline insane claims. When he does apologize for saying something wrong, he tends to sidestep the blame and place it on other sources, like the time he wrongly claimed an attack in Sweden was spearheaded by a Muslim immigrant. It wasn’t. So he said he wasn’t at fault because he saw it on Fox News.

Although Trump’s use of his Twitter account might seem like the ramblings of a mad uncle who trolls YouTube comments and parrots Alex Jones conspiracy theories, it turns out there may be a pretty brilliant strategy behind  his postings.

University of Berkeley Professor, George Lakoff, laid out Trump’s social media strategy after scrutinizing the President’s reactionary post patterns. Donald’s tweets, according to Lakoff, fall into one of four categories.

He provided examples of each and explains them in-depth.

According to this professor, almost all of the tactics employed by Trump are heavily rooted in deceit, lies, side-stepping issues or blaming them on others.

The first tactic, “pre-emptive framing” allows Trump to frame an argument that isn’t really rooted in fact or ends up making a mountain out of a mole-hill. An example of this would be Hillary Clinton’s housing of White House emails on a private server. Notice how Trump’s outrage at this practice stops at Clinton, as him and his administration are doing the same thing

Trump is able to get his message across after making such a bold claim because sites help disseminate his brazen idiocy. His supporters will inevitably come to Trump’s aid and vehemently attack anyone who attacks him fomenting an even greater hullabaloo over what he said. This theory suggests that Trump doesn’t care at the end of the day because, as the old saying goes: there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

Unfortunately, the media turned him into the popularity monster, love him or hate him, that he eventually became.

Because we’re constantly talking about him, we’re legitimizing him as a figure. Doesn’t matter if we think he’s a joke, we’re still talking about him, usually more than anything or anyone else outside of our immediate relationships with family and friends.

Pointing out Trump’s flaws and lies are seen as attacks by his loyal fan base and in a way, justifies the false, pre-emptive narrative that there’s a “crusade” against him. “Mainstream Media” and “Fake News” can bring up all the valid, backed-up sources and evidence that they want, oftentimes bringing up Trump’s old quotes and footage to show his hypocrisy, but much of his fanbase ultimately sees these as “attacks” and give them more reason to back the president.

Lakoff points out that reacting to Trump in this way and taking the low-hanging fruit isn’t an effective means of discrediting him. By “stooping” down to his level, we’re legitimizing his medium of communication and are thus legitimizing him.

Instead, Lakoff thinks that Trump’s bold claims should be met with this appropriate response:

Instead, if us, as the media, focused on things that actually matter, like how our government is tearing apart at the seams and not this drama fomented by a blowhard, we’d be able to lay the groundwork for some meaningful change.

So Lakoff proposed a simple three step plan for journalists and news commentators to follow:

Simply don’t share what he writes, and you’ll immediately help to focus on what is actually important.

Or we could laugh at him because he has small hands and tweets nonsensical words like “covfefe.” What do you think?

A wood burner is really reaching, but why not find all sorts of things to celebrate? Goodness knows I have enough unused cards lying around.

Trump Said His 'Nuclear Button' Is Bigger Than North Korea's And You Can Guess How People Reacted

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on his first day back in Washington after spending the holidays at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. He attacked the Department Of Justice, announced that he’d be holding some bizarre fake news award show next Monday, and that’s just the start. 

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump responded to claims by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that he keeps an armed nuclear button on his desk in the only way Donald Trump could… 

Yes, the leader of the free world just said that his “nuclear button” is “much bigger and more powerful.” And just in case you were wondering, it “works,” even at 71 years old. 

North Korea has pursued a nuclear weapons program since the end of the Korean War, and previous presidents have enforced international embargoes to force the regime to the negotiation table. North Korea now claims to have missiles that could reach the continental United States, and the two new leaders have been in a war of words, with President Trump threatening “fire and fury” and calling Kim Jong Un “little rocket man.” 

Yes, the Internet knows what Donald Trump is insinuating. And many users were unimpressed given the seriousness.

Others seemed to get a laugh out of the tweet. 

Some users allured to the claim that President Donald Trump has a red button on his desk that he uses to have coca cola and snacks delivered to his desk. 

What do you think of the President’s nuclear button?

This Third Grader's Plan For Dealing With Donald Trump Has The Internet Divided

Adults aren’t very good at dealing with their problems, but third graders apparently have it all figured out. Kelly Cohen, a reporter for NBC Washington, recently took to Twitter to share a piece of homework reportedly from one of her friend’s third grade students. 

You can probably guess why she had it hanging in her apartment… 

Some users weren’t happy with the third grader’s perception of Africa.

While some pinned the blame on the media. 

Others focused on other aspects of the homework.

Someone Replaced President Trump With His Terrible Disney Animatronic And It's Hilarious

In case you didn’t hear the news earlier this month, Walt Disney World’s Hall of Presidents reopened after months of delay with a new addition — President Donald Trump. And the animatronic was immediately mocked online for looking absolutely nothing like President Trump. 

So Twitter user Born Miserable decided to Photoshop President Trump out of several photos and replace him with his robot counterpart in what may be the best series of tweets on the Internet. 

“I’ve done several Trump Photoshops and when I saw that animatronic figure, I just thought it would make more sense to put it in place of him — just about as much of a human being as he is,” Born Miserable told Mashable

Somehow, it makes this photo look even more evil…

Even a robot needs a break every now and then.

There was the time President Trump mocked a disabled reporter…

These are the best photoshops ever. And social media users seem to agree…

That’s one way to round off the year.

Cole Sprouse Sends His Twin Brother Unsettling And NSFW Christmas Gift—And Everyone Has Questions

Former Disney stars and current beloved social media favorites Dylan and Cole Sprouse grew up right before our eyes. They’re not Zack and Cody anymore, they’re big adults who give each other extremely adult gifts, apparently. And it’s a bit alarming.

On Thursday, Cole tweeted a text conversation he had with his twin, Dylan, about a Christmas gift from the former. Dylan seems more confused than mad, but Cole claims he didn’t appreciate this present. 

It’s a bisected penis drawing.

Huh, that is what this is, isn’t it:

Very informative! Sort of threatening as well. 

Naturally, folks have questions, though they’re not all about the anatomy lesson:

My question is, “Does the d*ck joke get more sophisticated when it’s anatomically correct?”

Ivanka Trump Just Followed Rihanna On Twitter—And Her Fans Are Not Having It

She was recently called a hypocrite for praising US workers as being “the best”, while using foreign workers to produce her goods. She also gave a talk about female empowerment in India, while employing factories that violated human rights of workers.

Then there’s the whole messy business of the Trump name being tied to White Supremacy, something that doesn’t sit well with a lot of Americans. 

Which is probably why a lot of Rihanna’s fans are upset that Ivanka Trump started following the pop star on Twitter.

Rihanna’s been pretty vocal about her distaste of Donald Trump and his policies.

Back in January of 2017 when Trump implemented the unconstitutional travel ban, Rihanna was pretty vocal about how she felt regarding the ruling.

Then there was the singer’s criticism of how Trump handled the crisis in Puerto Rico.

So people are really flustered as to why Ivanka would elect to follow BadGirlRiRi.

People are waiting in anticipation to see how she’s going to react to her new follower.

They’re hoping it’s along the lines of this:

How do you think Rihanna will react? Is this a huge media opportunity the singer won’t be able to pass up?

Or should be drop the ban hammer?

Man Goes On Twitter Rant About Trump's Recent New York Times Interview—And We Agree

Arguing on the internet is oftentimes about as useful as peeing against the wind. Sure, you might really need to get it out, but it almost always ends up spraying back in your face.

People’s opinions rarely change no matter how much evidence you bring to them. No matter how many good points you make, no matter how many other issues you present that are way more important to focus on than the inconsequential, often sensationalized issues they choose to focus on – you won’t change someone’s mind on the internet.

Oftentimes, merely criticizing someone’s point or questioning them will have them cry “persecution” and that you’re being unfair to them. It’s a trait tons of dictatorial regimes have utilized in discrediting media agencies for catching them in lies and exposing the weak points in their propaganda.

Trump’s popularized the term “fake news” and used it as a blanket statement to try and discredit any news agency that questions and disproves many of the President’s erroneous claims. 

The divisive nature of Trump’s election has left people with very strong opinions on how the press should treat him. However, the objective of traditional press has always been to provide factual evidence and question individuals on the facts. The media in America was expected to be a watchdog of the government to keep our elected officials honest, since the earliest days of our democracy.

Washington Star correspondent Daniel Dale offered an interesting take on the role journalists should take when interviewing Donald Trump and politicians like him who constantly lie in a manner that doesn’t destroy the entire q & a.

Dale stresses professionalism and politeness.

It’s much more powerful to allow a lying politician, President or not, acknowledge their lie in a follow up answer and just carry on with the interview.

He also highlighted the difference between interview and print lies.

It’s all about maintaining composure.

He stressed that basic questioning is a journalist’s job, there’s nothing “gotcha” about it.

Ultimately, Dale just wanted to highlight the correct way to interview someone like Trump who has a penchant for making wild claims without evidence in his q & a’s.

Some people responded to the thread by pointing out some of the worst lies Trump’s told in his interviews.

And how journalists let him get away with it.

Do you feel like the media needs to be tougher on Trump? Or is it a losing battle at this point?
