The friend that posted this did say fuck off to it but all the same. Who the hell believes this shit!! Real men don't cheat in the first place

Surely it's sarcastic/ironic?

It's taking the piss out of 'stand by your man' memes, surely?

ollieplimsoles Wed 27-Jan-16 12:01:11

Its a joke

liz70 Wed 27-Jan-16 12:01:21

Calm down, dear. It's satire.

Surely it's a joke?

No one believes it. That's the "humour".

NeedACleverNN Wed 27-Jan-16 12:03:33

Dunno. Some soft "I can't live without you" type people have shared it as they love their "man"

PurpleDaisies Wed 27-Jan-16 12:04:51

Maybe you need to stop following some of your Facebook friends.

CrystalMcPistol Wed 27-Jan-16 12:04:55

Erm, I think it's meant to be ironic OP.

liz70 Wed 27-Jan-16 12:06:10

Well, they're just dozy mares, then. YABVU to get worked up by anything on FB. 99% of it is utter pish and shite anyway.

ByThePrickingOfMyThumbs Wed 27-Jan-16 12:06:20

If they person who shared it believes it's genuine then they're as thick as mince. It's clearly satire.

Vixxfacee Wed 27-Jan-16 12:07:38

It's sarcastic.

ReginaBlitz Wed 27-Jan-16 12:09:53

Really? the rage? Oh dear. If anything I'd be "raged" at the stereotypical photo.

PaulAnkaTheDog Wed 27-Jan-16 12:13:29

Oh dear.... It's a joke. It's mocking.

caitlinohara Wed 27-Jan-16 12:19:25

obv a joke - the STDs comment makes that clear.

firesidechat Wed 27-Jan-16 12:23:52

It's not meant seriously, although maybe your friend thinks it is.

I love a bit of sarcasm (or is it irony).

firesidechat Wed 27-Jan-16 12:24:47

Did you think it was serious op? It seems like you did.

MrsFrisbyMouse Wed 27-Jan-16 12:27:19

sarcasm is I believe the use of irony...

Meant to be ironic - but what is sad is that there are women out there who honestly think so little of themselves that they would believe this s***.

It's a joke.

I have a mate who posts new stories from The Daily Mash, The Onion and The Oatmeal all the time. I've given up correcting her.

CakeNinja Wed 27-Jan-16 12:28:48

I think your friends might be a bit dumb?

squizita Wed 27-Jan-16 12:50:23

Cake my friend who does this is perfectly OK in many regards, but has this blind spot for reading 'clues' to tone of voice, or cross referencing what she knows with facts. She can't spot whether they're outlandish but reacts with genuine surprise and belief e.g. "WOW! A new magazine is to be set up by the Daily Mail purely to criticise NHS workers! How can they be allowed to do that?" hmm Most odd.

I've come across it before - dare I say it often with very 'naice' people, often well educated (even expensively educated!) with naice jobs.
It's almost like a form of naivity. Those of us who are a bit more gritty and sarcastic and perhaps worldly find it blindingly obvious!

It's a joke. If your friends are taking it seriously, you should unfriend them instead of taking it out on the silly picture.
