if you make a joke on Mastodon, no matter WHAT the content is, after 50+ boosts people will appear in the replies that take it completely at literal face value.

you could post "a man walks into a bar, says ouch!" and if it receives 50+ boosts, then you will begin seeing replies like "THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN STEEL BAR PLACEMENT IS DEREGULATED BY PROFIT DRIVEN CROOKS!"

this theory is commonly known as Eugen's Gambit. and i love it.

@sexybenfranklin @remulacfrommars @jackdaw_ruiz I got 50 boosts and no one was sincere in my mentions; they just made fun of me (yes, this is specifically what i asked them to do but that’s beside the point)
