Do Words Ever Fool You?

Please choose a format above.

Words can be tricky. Do words ever fool you? Do they ever convince you to liquidate your savings into crypto and send it to a guy named "$enator Epicdoge" so he won’t release the webcam footage he claims he has of you? Do you have any idea how to get it back before our wife finds out? 

Yes, words can be tricky, as the young star of our new short learns. Jerry buys some binoculars out of the back of a comic book, somehow resisting the allure of X-Ray Specs and Sea Monkeys. This is a good thing—Jerry seems like the kind of kid who would have definitely drank the Sea Monkeys and possibly tried to eat the Specs. The binoculars are advertised as “powerful”, and Jerry, who thought he would be able to gaze at neighboring planets with them, is disappointed. Evidently the lesson is, “Yes, words can fool you, if you’re as big a dope as Jerry.”

You’re not as big a dope as Jerry, are you? Wanna prove it? Well then check out Do Words Ever Fool You? today!
