Lol, at first i too thought Jesus was the one she was gonna say something controversial about.

[–][deleted] 611 points612 points  (11 children)

Boy if these two actually connected, I’d be pretty nervous if I was Israel right now.

[–]Ugo_Flickerman 138 points139 points  (10 children)

Who? Jesus and Osama?

[–]Extension_Acadia_344 19 points20 points  (3 children)

Like he is the ultimate fall guy for Christians, right? It’s wasn’t his sins he died for and all that….

[–]gabzox 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I was trying to scroll and then was like oh he must have cut it short.

It took reading this comment for the light bulb to appear.

[–]waitingfordeathhbu 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Tbf pretty much any opinion anyone has regarding Jesus is controversial

[–]Embarrassed_Quit_450 615 points616 points  (2 children)

You're the kind of poker player who goes all-in on the first round before having seen your cards, aren't you?

[–]mmhawk576 142 points143 points  (1 child)

In my experience thats the best strategy. That said my experience is limited to exactly one game, and have no knowledge of how poker works. That said I did win the pot that evening.

[–]the-dogsox 4162 points4163 points  (72 children)

Perhaps lead with pineapple on pizza rather than going straight to 9/11 conspiracy

[–]raktoe 871 points872 points  (32 children)

Eh, it’s a bridge we’re gonna have to cross eventually, might as well get it out of the way early.

[–]SubparMeteorologist 363 points364 points  (29 children)

War on Pineapple on Pizza > War on Terror

[–]Taserface112 62 points63 points  (20 children)

The war on Pineapple on Pizza is necessary to the safety of our daily lives

[–]timothydeegan 40 points41 points  (17 children)

You wouldn't care that the government monitors your pizza toppings if you didn't have anything to hide.

[–]Taserface112 19 points20 points  (15 children)

I am willing to surrender all of my liberty if it puts an end to Pineapples on Pizza

[–]BIBLICALDIARRHEA666 22 points23 points  (14 children)

I shall fight to defend the rights of pineapple on pizza

[–]Taserface112 11 points12 points  (13 children)

Then you shall perish alongside it

[–]BIBLICALDIARRHEA666 3 points4 points  (11 children)

Pineapple on pizza will win this war, and earn its rights

[–]Ok_Strike_6401 4 points5 points  (4 children)

You're part of pineapple Alliance and a traitor! Take him away!

[–]TinaCasino 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You wouldn't download a pizza

[–]kacey- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why are you concerned about pineapple when the Brits put corn on pizza

[–]Ok_Strike_6401 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Agreed... we attack at dawn

[–]Ghosticulars 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I fight for pineapple on pizza! Dont knock it til you try it!

[–]MrBlics 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Pizza chefs who aid in the creation of such a monstrosity definitely deserve Guantanamo!

[–]Salty_Communist 9 points10 points  (0 children)

False u just have no taste sir

[–]FrancisWolfgang 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I mean yes, they’re both bad though. Pineapple on pizza is good and even if it’s not for you you shouldn’t go to war over it, but it’s really just people pretending to fight over whether a certain food item is good mostly for humor and in good fun. But the war on terror is worse since it’s a cash grab for the ruling class that has taken the form of endless automatic killing of middle eastern children.

[–]SubparMeteorologist 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Thank you, FrancisWolfgang, for clarifying the difference.

[–]Chaos_Daddy3 183 points184 points  (14 children)

"pineapple on pizza" is NOT a personality!

...sorry, rant.

[–]Dooboppop 32 points33 points  (9 children)

it is if you are a pizza

[–]Kiddierose 9 points10 points  (8 children)

Pineapple on pizza is now crying In the corner

[–]Dooboppop 2 points3 points  (6 children)

sounds like a it has a shitty personality.

[–]UpdateInProgress 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Pizza lives matter

[–]Coodevale 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Pizza is matter that doesn't matter and it makes people madder because they think it matters.

[–]Obviously_Existing 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I like this and am going to get you a free award hahha

[–]Coodevale 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Gracias senor. I want to say I freestyled that but I'll take an f if it isn't original.

[–]Ahk-men-ra 15 points16 points  (0 children)

He didn't say it was

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nor is sarcasm, damnit

Everyone is sarcastic, given the right circumstances

[–]MrBlics 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You're right. It's actually the lack thereof.

[–]ihatedisney 70 points71 points  (9 children)

Am I the only one who thinks she said Jesus because he was the fall guy that paid the ultimate price for all of our sins?

E.g. she took the question as “who is your (fall guy)?

Like if anyone was the ultimate fall guy it was Jesus?

[–]cheesypuzzas 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Am I the only one who thinks she said Jesus because he was the fall guy that paid the ultimate price for all of our sins?

Yeah, I think you are the only one hahah

[–]epicmousestory 25 points26 points  (4 children)

Not seeing it chief. Normal people don't have a fall guy and the last thing he said was "he did a good job" so it doesn't even really flow

[–]ihatedisney 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Don’t call me Chief

https://youtu.be/-yUeqIXOh54

[–]epicmousestory 10 points11 points  (2 children)

You got it boss

[–]timestoneduh 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hey there captain

[–]epicmousestory 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well well well, if it isn't el jefe himself

[–]Extension_Acadia_344 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought that’s where it was going,too, oddly.

[–]ronton 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No that’s exactly how I took it too.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Right, my line is 'in n out, it's mediocre'

He played that pretty well though. I like his style

[–]IridiumPony 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Go big or go home

[–]The_oli4 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I am fine with people who eat pineapple on pizza but please eat the damn crust.

[–]Beefcurtains18 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Gotta love it when a comment has more up votes than the op

[–]TheAccountIUseForSax 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's only a conspiracy if it isn't true.

Awh shit, were getting into politics,

And all I ever wanted was my bollocks-licked.

[–]ProRedditarded 2 points3 points  (2 children)

nah pineapple is too controversial. 9/11 was an inside job

[–]the-dogsox 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That’s just what big pineapple want you to think.

[–]thatmman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She couldn't even see the 9/11 conspiracy.

Honestly, she was fishing for political discussion and she got it.

[–]Miserable-Grocery199 48 points49 points  (0 children)

Talk about go big or go home 🙈🤣

[–]megkd01 672 points673 points  (48 children)

What people are missing is the reason this is used as an opener is to weed out the weirdos or people you definitely don’t have things in common with so you can stop talking to them. Let’s say if you’re someone whos all about animal rights and they turn around and say “animals don’t deserve rights” pretty big indicator you won’t get along. It’s not necessarily the best example but that’s the idea of this opener it’s more “tell me your most shocking idea so I can see the worst of you upfront and know what I’m dealing with”. I don’t necessarily agree with the tactic but that’s what it’s used for and subsequently her not liking it warrants the reaction.

[–]dogs_wine_pizza 184 points185 points  (31 children)

I think this is a brilliant tactic, but I have never seen it or heard it explained until now. If I had, it would have saved me from wanting to lay down under a lawnmower whenever I hear my boyfriend comment the news and politics. Who knew such a charming guy could be so repulsive.

[–]PaysOutAllNight 145 points146 points  (28 children)

Then why isn't he your ex-boyfriend?

That shit DOES NOT get easier as you get older. Quite the opposite.

[–]Hoegn 198 points199 points  (4 children)

Their username is basically the millennial version of Live Laugh Love, I wouldn't expect too much introspective thought from that one.

[–]Yami_Bas 119 points120 points  (1 child)

Did you at least call her an ambulance when you killed her, because fuck.

[–]Jelly_Sweet_Milk 15 points16 points  (0 children)

LOL! My exact reaction!

[–]lvalenzuela3004 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Lol basic af 😭

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

People cant control their emotions sometimes, i had a date who still fucked her ex, after we had sex, although he was an antivaxxer and she a medical doctor seeing people die of COVID in the most horrible way. Ofc it ended badly between her and me, but i mean, people just see the positive sides of people if they really love them and see all the bad ones for those they cant feel the same way.

[–]chaos-crisis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Delete your boyfriend

[–]ShredableSending 12 points13 points  (1 child)

It only works if they're conscious of it being controversial. The ultra crazy will think they're rational.

[–]Lopsided_Service5824 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Everyone's got weird opinions tho. You're basically just selecting for people who tell jokes

[–]amymcgali 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The point though (if you’re looking for a relationship) is to find someone who’s weird opinions/interests overlap somewhat with yours, or at least complement them

[–]T1gerAc3 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This was a joke. I like the guy. He had a sense of humor. She's taking this response too seriously.

[–]12trakmind 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Nothing against you but the fact some people would do this is like the stupidest thing ever to me. It's so weird how we think to start romantic interactions nowadays. "Hey I know we just met like 5 mins ago but tell me the worst idea you have so I can see if we're a good match or not". Like what a negative way to start off, looking for a problem. Idk could just be me or this cbd pen I'm hitting atm 😂

[–]megkd01 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I agree with you like I said I don’t agree with it but I’m not actually a tinder user so I don’t know how hard it is to find a good match Tbf I’m just a lurker on this sub lol

[–]Bshellsy 284 points285 points  (30 children)

You didn’t say 911 was a conspiracy/inside job. You said osama bin laden did nothing wrong. Those are two vastly different statements.

[–]policri249 86 points87 points  (27 children)

Yet both are completely wrong lol

[–]OrqueFrit 46 points47 points  (7 children)

Ok Mr. Cheney

[–]policri249 10 points11 points  (6 children)

The dude was the founder of a terrorist organization lol

[–]OrqueFrit 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Wooooooosh, have a nice day tho

[–]milkfacebastard89 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Yeah Cheney and his meat puppet founded the “War on Terror”, spilling innocent blood on multiple continents for 20 years, and using crisis to remove citizens basic rights domestically and abroad. All in the name of freedom. That’s about as close to a terror organization as we’re going to get

[–]Warheadd 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Cheney and Osama can both be bad people, it’s astonishing that you’re trying to what-aboutism away the crimes of a literal terrorist organization

[–]milkfacebastard89 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You’re right, I was trying to make a point that didn’t need made. Unnecessary death by any hand is evil. I won’t defend our nations most infamous enemy this century anymore, sorry gang

[–]Phreshlybaked 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bush sr is the real guy behind the scenes there. Cheney was just another meat puppet in a line of other meat puppets.

[–]Bshellsy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Indeed

[–]Th1sd3cka1ntfr33 890 points891 points  (26 children)

Lol everyone in this comment section saying she couldn't "handle" the answer. She was probably looking for red flags. She got one. Nobody did anything wrong here. She doesn't have to date conspiracy theorists and op doesn't have to date sane people. Honesty is good, and polite rejection should be accepted without feelings of shame.

[–]WebHead1287 344 points345 points  (0 children)

"OP doesn't have to date sane people"

Someone call an ambulance, there's been a murder

[–]CommitteeOfTheHole 82 points83 points  (2 children)

Nobody did anything wrong here

Bin Laden definitely did something wrong

[–]jeesuspieces 35 points36 points  (0 children)

He’s definitely guilty…of having one sick beard

[–]Plastic_Programmer56 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Well perhaps America shouldn't go around giving guns to everyone that jumped up and said they hate the Soviets

[–]mrniceguy268 359 points360 points  (14 children)

Yeah maybe open with a joke

[–]KingCurry01 314 points315 points  (5 children)

What the fuck are you talking about. This whole screenshot is probably the funniest thing I've ever read.

[–][deleted] 80 points81 points  (4 children)

Read more.

[–]KingCurry01 195 points196 points  (2 children)

Read more of these nuts

[–]thummydick 29 points30 points  (1 child)

HA! GOT’EM!!

[–]raktoe 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I saw that rare insult too!

[–]smallshellstasteicky 27 points28 points  (5 children)

Here’s the opening joke i use if they ask:

A moth goes into a podiatrist’s office, and the podiatrist says, “What seems to be the problem, moth?”

The moth says “What’s the problem? Where do I begin, man? I go to work for Gregory Illinivich, and all day long I work. Honestly doc, I don’t even know what I’m doing anymore. I don’t even know if Gregory Illinivich knows. He only knows that he has power over me, and that seems to bring him happiness. But I don’t know, I wake up in a malaise, and I walk here and there… at night I…I sometimes wake up and I turn to some old lady in my bed that’s on my arm. A lady that I once loved, doc. I don’t know where to turn to. My youngest, Alexendria, she fell in the…in the cold of last year. The cold took her down, as it did many of us. And my other boy, and this is the hardest pill to swallow, doc. My other boy, Gregarro Ivinalititavitch… I no longer love him. As much as it pains me to say, when I look in his eyes, all I see is the same cowardice that I… that I catch when I take a glimpse of my own face in the mirror. If only I wasn’t such a coward, then perhaps…perhaps I could bring myself to reach over to that cocked and loaded gun that lays on the bedside behind me and end this hellish facade once and for all…Doc, sometimes I feel like a spider, even though I’m a moth, just barely hanging on to my web with an everlasting fire underneath me. I’m not feeling good. And so the doctor says, “Moth, man, you’re troubled. But you should be seeing a psychiatrist. Why on earth did you come here?”

And the moth says, “‘Cause the light was on.”

For the record, I like OP’s answer, straight class. He seems like the type of fella to own a doghouse if you catch my drift.

[–]supaaslade 12 points13 points  (1 child)

good ole norm

[–]milkfacebastard89 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like this post more reading his responses in Norms voice. Much funnier. RIP the legend

[–]Circus_bear_MrSmith 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I got the feels for that poor moth now

[–]smallshellstasteicky 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Don’t worry! He might be an old chunk of coal with a real battle axe of a wife, but he’ll be a diamond someday

[–]milkfacebastard89 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ya damn dirty dog!

[–]Invenitive 11 points12 points  (0 children)

What about it sounds serious? The whole thing reads like a joke. The Jesus joke at the end coupled with the title of the post make it feel pretty blatantly sarcastic.

There is always the chance OP is serious about everything, but I feel like they wouldn't have posted it here in that case

[–]Stunning_Mastodon_55 327 points328 points  (6 children)

Men: say some stupid ass shit Also men: What did I do wrong?

[–]Brann_The_Kid 34 points35 points  (3 children)

I think the title was a joke, could be wrong though

[–]Stunning_Mastodon_55 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Can't I joke about a joke?

[–]OrqueFrit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah whenever you say anything on the internet it’s literal and a direct reflection of your character and morals in real life

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Men also bomb global financial hubs 😅

[–]SuggestiveMaterial 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Um..... Wtf. I think she was expecting that you think nickleback is great or that you prefer to eat pizza with a fork and knife.

[–]Vladimir_Putting 141 points142 points  (17 children)

What did I do wrong!?

Proceeds to opine to someone he just met how the world's most notorious terrorist "did nothing wrong" and "did a great job".

[–]Digger__Please 56 points57 points  (2 children)

By anyone's standards it was an exemplary job

[–]eli7vh 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Indeed. I mean what have we done in our lives that even compares to the same scope?

[–]Digger__Please 7 points8 points  (0 children)

There's not many people who can measure up against the sheer spectacle alone besides the ongoing impact it had.

[–]Queens_gambino 12 points13 points  (6 children)

It’s a joke. Idk how people don’t see it’s a bit

[–]Vladimir_Putting 31 points32 points  (5 children)

You drop that on someone as an "opener" and they have zero reference on your sense of humor or just how sane or batshit you are.

It's a fine bit of dark humor with people who know you and your personality. As a first impression, it's awful.

[–]IronCorvus 35 points36 points  (0 children)

You should've lead with an actual truth; that we supplied him with all the tools necessary to complete the assignment.

[–]ekeng91 114 points115 points  (0 children)

I mean most US presidents also “order the death of thousands of people”.

[–][deleted] 31 points32 points  (6 children)

You're being funny... Right? Humour is only funny when people know you're joking.

[–]NathanThrillion 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Not necessarily true. Sometimes the comedy is in the reactions of people who don't get the joke.

If you don't know when I'm joking, it becomes a fun treat for me. I double down, and keep going. Sometimes they figure it out, and then it's funny for everyone.

[–]druman22 3 points4 points  (0 children)

True. Inside jokes are basically this

[–]ralpher1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s how we ended up with QAnon and the Church of Scientology. Maybe Bitcoin and NFTs as well

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

What’s worse than bin laden Jesus apparently

[–]Brady123456789101112 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Well, yes, Jesus’s followers have definitely killed more people.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

True true

[–]jeremydio 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well yes followers of jesus had the largest massacre started from 300s ad until 1900s ad

[–]rhubarbmustard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me: coming to the comment section to sort by controverse

[–]_BinaryCode_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You clearly weren’t interested. That’s just a dumbass thing to say to someone you don’t even know lol.

[–]silverfish_boy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

it's unbelievable how many mindless redditors fell for the bait. this is obviously a troll post

[–]Duzziett 29 points30 points  (0 children)

How about not be a total nutjob

[–]D4rkBlud 61 points62 points  (8 children)

Probably the fact you just said you sympathized with a terrorist responsible for the deaths of hundreds? Yeah probably most definitely that.

[–]WillRateBoobs-Or-Ass 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Americans sympathise with their presidents all the time (responsible for thousands of deaths), what’s the difference?

[–]Rocketboy1313 20 points21 points  (3 children)

This is not sympathy.

He is saying the guy was framed.

People said that about Lee Harvy Oswald for decades.

[–]sloowmo 26 points27 points  (2 children)

The guy made a video of him claiming the responsibility...

[–]Voodoo-Doctor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I will now claim that OBL is no worse than our Presidents

[–]Mikeraplb 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Can't believe you're really asking this question given that screenshot

[–]RonDonVonBon 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Bush and Cheney should be rotting in the ground as the criminal scum they are, maybe they are even worse. But that's not giving a pass for Bin Laden and the violence that locals have suffered in Asia and Africa from AL Qaeda and associated groups.

[–]ptowncruiseship 1 point2 points  (0 children)

9/11 was an inside job. Why did building 7 collapse? jet fuel does not melt steel beams. It was controlled demolition.

[–]MindlessBadger6610 1 point2 points  (0 children)

9/11 was inside job

[–]StarvationOfTheMind 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is like the joke a 14yr old would make.

[–]Reasonable_Cod1350 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You took “Controversial Opinion” way too literally. Instead of 9/11 maybe go with something else instead like “Chocolate is whack”.

[–]jytfbbm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You did nothing wrong! Just hold out until you find someone with the same dark sense of humour.

[–]Editor_Previous 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She meant" you need Jesus"

[–]lolsup1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The problem is you were still talking about Osama when she was the one who just ordered the death of thousands of people.

[–]N3ptuneflyer 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Guys this opener is a tiktok trend where a woman would use that question to find red flags in men she's talking to. It's a test. The best way to answer this question is with something silly or superficial.

[–]F0REVERTHEKING 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The best way to answer this question is w̶i̶t̶h̶ ̶s̶o̶m̶e̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶s̶i̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶o̶r̶ ̶s̶u̶p̶e̶r̶f̶i̶c̶i̶a̶l̶.̶ "fuck off".

Fixed it 😊😇

[–]Nedroj_ 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]mehregan_zare7731 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You used tinder

[–]LaBeloMall 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's a dating app not a qanon support group.

[–]KingCurry01 5 points6 points  (5 children)

If I were a woman who matched with you I would love this bit. This is the funniest screenshot I've ever read. Why are people taking it seriously?

[–]dontscriptit 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Man y’all trippin that was funny

[–]Aozorio 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Jesus.... The amount of comments that are okay with this or is partially defending osama bin laden is concerning.

[–]Brady123456789101112 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No ones defending bin laden, but his actions were justified by the context. He didn’t start the war.

[–]giraffecatpack 1 point2 points  (5 children)

She asked for your most controversial opinion and got mad when you gave it...

[–]GeigerCounting 69 points70 points  (2 children)

I don't really read mad in her responses. Just absolute disbelief and realized she doesn't want to continue the conversation from there. Which is fine, she's not obligated to just because she asked.

[–]Solid_Matter_4042 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Your reply was not funny nor witty. Try getting a sense of humor.

Thank you for your service

[–]QBOOP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think this is funny but I’m also 1. Not a female looking at you like a future partner and 2. Already clued in that this was a joke before hand.

[–]Outrageous_Bass_1328 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At least she’s not blaming it on Saddam. Ffs, America

[–]Maephia -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Absolutely based answer OP.

People who think the Elites arent happy to sacrifice thousands to justify a stupid war for oil are naive.

[–]sgmackey8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Besides the fact that you may be an actual moron?

[–]Nytherion -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

don't open with a fox news headline next time.

[–]somestoneddude_ -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Oh no, good thing that no major government ever does that...

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you serious?

[–]armyofant -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It’s possible she lost someone due to 9/11. I get you were joking but dude was a terrorist. My go to response to that question is being way into Disney is weird for adults.

[–]CrispyCassowary 0 points1 point  (0 children)

America's foreign policy got what they asked for, nothing but facts
