questionsfavorite fake internet quote?


If you simply added, "What is your..." to the front of that the magical English fairies would have made it a question. Also woot wouldn't have harassed you.


"Beer is how we know God loves us." Benjamin Frranklin


"I really didn't say everything I said. " - Yogi Berra


"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." - Ben Franklin

He never said that.


One of my favorite quotes is so often mis-attributed to Nelson Mandela that there's a Snopes article about it.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

― Marianne Williamson, Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"

Similar to one of yours, but this is my FB profile pic:

He never said that. He doesn't speak. He only touches things with his noodly appendages.


you can't live with them...
pass the beer nuts.

Oh wait, I guess that's not fake.

"I can see Russia from my house." - Sarah Palin

This was actually said by Tina Fey on SNL, but there is such blind hatred for Sarah Palin that everyone just believes that it's true.


@machgogogo: Similarly, I've read that Al Gore never claimed to invent the internet. I haven't actually listened to all of his speeches so I can't say if that is true.


From the Pączkis thread:

I am a jelly donut.
(didn't really say that)

@j5: Actually he did but what he said was "Ich bin ein Berliner" said it 3 times I think in his speech in berlin as with many foreign languates inflection changes the word he was trying to say I am one of you something along those lines but it came out more as I am a jelly donut. Obvisouly this is a translation of the german phrase. But speaking both german and english the diffrences are minute no one really thought he meant he was a jelly donut but its a funy story.

It seems to be debated what was meant or intendend but their are multiple sources talking about it. I imagine would have been something a political cartoon would have taken issue with back in the day.

That being said Berliner's are super yummy its basically a jelly filled donut
