For as long as there has been a film industry, concerned parents have warned kids that movies like Star Wars, Top Gun, World War Z, and Angry Birds are trying to turn them into violent, promiscuous, Satan-worshipping commies. Well, it turns out they may be right -- though half the time it's not even clear if the filmmakers are even aware of it. "Doctor" Jordan Breeding returns once again to diagnose the state of the film industry and hopefully also escape from a CIA Black Site.

Tiktok Conspiracy Theory About Prince Harry's Parents Goes Viral

It has been quite the week for British royalty. First the Oprah interview, then Pierce Morgan steps down from Good Morning Britain, and now this? Tiktok user lilwimby posted a video of a conspiracy theory about who Prince Harry's real father is. It seems that suddenly Americans possess a newfound interest in British royalty unlike ever before. Maybe we're getting bored of the closest thing we have to our royal family: aka The Kardashians.

Conspiracy Theory: Wonder Woman and Princess Diana Might Just Be The Same Person

As you all know, Wonder Woman is an amazing asset to our society. She's strong and fast, and she'll whip the truth right out of people with that golden lasso. But lately, I've been thinking there might be a truth that needs to get whipped out of HER: who is she, really? Most of us know her real name is Diana Prince but doesn't that sound awfully similar to...Princess Diana? You know, the widely-adored, allegedly deceased princess of Wales? Once I noticed this subtle detail, I couldn't stop seeing the similarities. It's uncanny! Have a look for yourself…



the conspiracy of princess Diana and wonder woman | thumbnail text - BOTH Diana Prince and Princess Diana are the same gender! Sure, lots of people in the world are women. This could be circumstantial. But doesn’t it seem just a little too convenient?

Video: Kid Confronts Mom Over Belief That Antifa Stormed The Capitol

Rumors of Antifa being behind the January 6th storming of the capitol began almost as quickly as the Pro-Trump rally turned into an insurrection. Many far right conservatives and MAGA gangs seemed to immediately pass the blame to the anti-fascist group - much as they claimed Antifa was behind the BLM protests. Even though the FBI was quick to debunk the rumors, it seems that many followers of right-leaning mainstream media are still eager to deflect blame and weave more conspiratorial drama. 

While some of these believers will continue to swim in their seas of confirmation bias, others are apparently grapping with family members who won't stand for the BS. This viral video, in which a kid puts their mom on blast for her insistence that MAGA did no wrong, is a pretty great example of the latter. While it doesn't seem like they've changed their mom's mind, it's pretty entertaining to see mom struggle to explain something that's completely false. The reactions ain't bad either.

Cringeworthy Memes Your Family Probably Shared On Facebook

It feels like lots of young people have abandoned Facebook for Instagram and TikTok over the past couple years. This makes Facebook more of a site for those older family members who share cringeworthy content and think it's funny as hell. For a while it felt like the site was ruled by Minion mom memes, but those seem to have died down - making room for boomer conspiracy memes and tired jokes about marriage and the younger generations. The subreddit r/terriblefacebookmemes is an amazing archive of this corny content. And it helps us enjoy the cringe without having to log onto the cursed Zuckerberg site.

Twitter Conspiracy Theorists Attack Ian McKellen's Vaccine Endorsement

Conspiracy-loves and anti-vaxxers have really been making themselves heard as the world struggles to contain the deadly Covid-19 epidemic. While many people are celebrating the release of Pfizer's vaccine, conspiracy theorists are growing increasingly loud in response to any mention of the drug. Sir Ian McKellen received the vaccine early today, explaining that "Anyone who has lived as long as I have is alive because they have had previous vaccinations." The actor shared his excitement and recommendation on Twitter, and while many fans congratulated the 81 year-old, the trolls were just as eager to attack the endorsement. The truthers, who apparently don't believe in science, accused McKellen of everything from lying to sucking the teat of Bill Gates. We've included some of their cringey commentary below - maybe some of you will join the fight and help put them in their place. Our beloved Gandalf deserves better.

Tumblr Thread Explains Why Maroon 5 Is Definitely Up To Something

Behind the handsome face of Adam Levine lies a conspiracy. At least according to this Tumblr user, who wrote up a whole thread that Maroon 5's popularity is surprisingly low for how many people know and love their songs. While we can't really agree about the quality of their songs, perhaps this Tumblr user is onto something.

Social media has a lot of drawbacks, but the fact that we are able to witness insane public freakouts in real time is an absolute win. And with this absurd video, this QAnon-believing Karen has outdone most of her peers. She begins her aggressive attack against masks in Target, destroying a display and screaming "This shit is f*cking over." When the employees ask her to leave, she thinks she's being discriminated against because she's blonde and wears a Rolex. 

The insanity doesn't stop there. Once she's outside the store she starts "baa"-ing at shoppers wearing masks, calling them sheep. Things go even further when she starts ranting to police about how she is a QAnon spokesperson and has a personal relationship with Donald Trump. She also says she has millions of viewers - but on the live feed it's very clear that she's broadcasting to just 83 people. We hope she gets the help she sorely needs.
