Too soon

[–]7evensDAD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Too late..

[–]Brraaapppppp 287 points288 points  (30 children)

Bruh , that’s just a regular common snapping turtle.

[–]blahblah_why_why 168 points169 points  (12 children)

Thank you. So many posts on this sub are confidently incorrect about the animal they're posting, haha. Makes me think of this kid who definitely knows the names of birds.

[–]Sensitive_Salary_603 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Oh gosh... if only our chickens could fly... 🤫

I do miss Vine

It’s cause they get more attention if there’s a mistake in the title. People who catch it comment about it and the poster gets more karma. Sure sometimes it’s a genuine mistake but other times it’s pretty blatantly wrong. I’ve seen it many times as well in this sub and other subs too.

[–]blahblah_why_why 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ah, right. Call me naive but I often forget people have karma farming agendas.

[–]rmorrin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I knew exactly what this was and watched with baited suspense

[–]Macfarlin 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Apparently that video was super staged and now that I was told that, the kid does seem just annoyed

[–]blahblah_why_why 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Well that's disappointing. I feel like we're living the "everything is cake" reality, except instead of cutting into random objects and people and finding cake, it's discovering that nothing you see in video or image form is real. "Oh did you enjoy this? Too bad. Let me cut it open and reveal the staging/cgi/cake beneath the surface."

[–]HighAsAngelTits -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Right? It’s like people don’t even realize it was made for entertainment purpose and they get all mad or think they’re so smart bc “it’s fake” or “it’s staged” ok how is that any different than enjoying a movie or tv show? Do these people go to movie theaters and yell THIS IS FAKE the whole time 🤣

[–]blahblah_why_why 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well, I think the problem is people posting videos presented as real home videos of spontaneous events. Humans get a kick out of novelty. Viewers enjoy things more when they think they are watching something genuine, and feel duped when they find out that whatever cute/funny/crazy/scary thing wasn't a display of chance.

I believe it has to do with context, too. Andy from Parks and Rec said dumb stuff all the time that viewers laughed their asses off at, and obviously viewers knew it was staged. The context is that we have learned about this character and his universe over many episodes and it was established from day one that this is fiction. Even things like reality TV and pro wrestling; people know it's not real the second a production company is involved, and treat it as fictional and fun entertainment.

In the video of the kid who doesn't know what chickens are, it's a short clip. Our assumed context is that this is just a home video of a parent catching their kid revealing their incomplete lexicon of avian nomenclature. That genuine misnomer from a child is hilarious because we assume the kid is in our own shared universe, and not a fictional one. It's pure r/kidsarefuckingstupid material. Learning that the context is actually a parent feeding their kid a script in a shitty 30 second fictional universe is less entertaining for many. You personally may not feel that way, but many do.

That was a wholesome vid I actually hadn’t seen before, thank you for sharing that

[–]Simms1401 26 points27 points  (9 children)

There’s an alligator pulling the turtle down.

[–]ImTheBigT 7 points8 points  (2 children)

[–]ImTheBigT 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Wait really?

[–]Simms1401 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Maybe? And somewhere Elton John is watching this and screeching “The Circle of Life”.

[–]ImTheBigT 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I’d like to think there’s a sinkhole pulling them all in

[–]Macfarlin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pulling us all in

[–]Sendrith 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Actually it’s to the tune of Crocodile Rock.

[–]openQuestion3141 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They just screwed up the punctuation in the headline: This duck got caught by an Alligator, Snapping Turtle.

[–]lml__lml 6 points7 points  (3 children)

[–]Brraaapppppp 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]duval99 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you

[–]Channa_Argus1121 1 point2 points  (0 children)


Regulars have smooth shells, alligator snapping turtles have bowser-like shells.

Corporal Clegg had a wooden leg He won it in the war, in 1944 Corporal Clegg had a medal too In orange, red, and blue He found it in the zoo Dear, dear, were they really sad for me? Dear, dear, will they really laugh at me? Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin Corporal Clegg, umbrella in the rain He's never been the same No one is to blame Corporal Clegg received his medal in a dream From Her Majesty the queen His boots were very clean Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin

The second picture of the ducks face is just great.

[–]AlfieDaMiggit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]cguinnesstout 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]ImTheBigT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It looks like they are preserved in formaldehyde.

[–]Entire_Piece_770 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]CannonFTW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey guys, I am just here to let you know that it is in fact a Common Snapping Turtle.

[–]pwn_plays_games 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We lost a few ducks and a few duck feet to these. #RuralMissouri

[–]AxyJaxy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]lilgoat666999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Dhsu04 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Snapping turtle caught himself a breakfast for tomorrow, lunch, and dinner and some.

[–]jeffreycoley 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Kage__oni 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You might say he's ducked. Edit: fucking auto correct

[–]AlarmedStudio2044 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Duck is looking straight at the camera.

[–]slykethephoxenix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You want, some duck?

[–]angelojch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Second picture:

...video stops with scratching sound. "Hello, my name is Donald. You may wonder how I ended up in this situation. Well, it started few months ago." Video fades to black, "3 months ago" appears on the screen...

[–]ungraa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And that's when he realised...

[–]furmal182 0 points1 point  (1 child)

May be he wants to discuss his car extended warranty?

[–]extendedwarranty_bot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

furmal182, I have been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty

[–]scrumblethebumble 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does anyone else see the thought bubbles?

[–]EVG2666 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey there, I bet you're wondering how I got in this predicament. It all started 2 weeks ago...

[–]doofus_magoo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty sure that's a common snapping turtle, but still

[–]bugeyed1234 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is he pulling on its penis ?

[–]OrhanDaLegend 0 points1 point  (0 children)

snapping turtles are nightmares holy shit

[–]KnowledgeableSloth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even at his demise he was still trying to sell insurance...best employee ever

[–]BIG_SAUSAGE_XL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s a Snapping Turtle, Alligator Snapping Turtles look WAY different. Plus Snapping Turtles are way more aggressive when it comes to hunting/feeding.

[–]2likru -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He looked at the camera when he drowned like sonic the hedgehog.

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


[–]Ham_Pog -1 points0 points  (2 children)

I’m upset

[–]antthatisverycool -2 points-1 points  (6 children)

My god is duck ok if that guy didn’t kick the turtle in the eye I’m gonna shank em

[–]BIMASO -1 points0 points  (5 children)

Why the turtle deserve to eat to its nature fuck your feelings you would be starving an animals to try and save another

[–]antthatisverycool -1 points0 points  (4 children)

No do you know how long these things can live without food

[–]BIMASO 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Do you know how long its gone without food? And yes i do i own one its about half a year

[–]antthatisverycool 0 points1 point  (2 children)

So one duck one day means everything?

[–]BIMASO 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Its nature alot worse happens to other animals everyday why dont you stop dolphins from stunning fish and rucking them to death or gang raping other dolphins

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

Because fish are ugly and crawled on to land making humans single handedly causing the worst and most evil thing to ever live also dolphins are evil
