Two memes from Reddit's /r/technicallythetruth

16 Moments Where People Technically Told The Truth, So You Can't Blame Them

George Washington famously could not tell a lie, and neither can the people in these memes. While they may not have provided the most useful or appropriate responses, they did answer with honesty. You have to give them that. It is, technically, the truth.

Reddit's /r/technicallythetruth exists to gather and record moments where somebody has said the right thing but not what they were supposed to say. Where a sign has interpreted a situation very literally, or a speaker has implied something but not truly meant it. If you can't handle the truth then these memes might not be for you. But if you're a fan of straight faced, dry-as-the-Sahara humor, these memes are exactly what you need.

Because at the end of the day, honesty is not just the best policy, it might also be the most entertaining one. In an age of misinformation and deepfakes, finding joy in telling the truth and nothing but the truth is just about the most wholesome thing anyone on the internet can do.
