14 Disastrous Misunderstandings, Thanks To Social Media

We're making memes smarter. So can you. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get started.

And since we're pretty much all trying to communicate without the benefit of being in the same room together, misunderstandings and mixups are inevitable. We asked our readers to give us their most frustrating examples, so we could all commiserate.

This contest is the brainchild of ShortUsername01, who we hope won't misunderstand what we mean by 'thanks for the great idea.'
