The internet is full of lies, hoaxes, and misinformation. And we, we are only human. Whether it's with some dumb fake news site or a viral photo that won't die or an misread Onion headline, we've all been a proven too gullible at some point. Tell us your most embarrassing story.
I'll go first. When I was less cynical about the internet than I am now, I encountered what looked like a submit-your-own Shell advertising campaign that had been cleverly co-opted by environmentalists. I even pitched a story to my editor about it! And then, uhh, I realized...uh...the whole thing was a Greenpeace stunt.
All right, give us your worst. We already know Deadspin's.
