15+ Funny Things That Are Technically True

Rae Batchelor 11 Jun 2019

Sometimes in life, you're presented with the opportunity to answer a question or make a claim that's not really right, but is technically true. For instance, a chicken is a dinosaur. That's not right. But it is true. Technically speaking.

The great songstress Whitney Houston once said, "It's not right, but it's okay." When it comes to this list, the song should go, "It's not okay, but it is right."

1. Yep. That'll do it.

If you wear this while you're running past someone, you'll probably go by them too quickly for them to read your entire shirt. They'll never know what you're faster than. And neither will you.

These are the type of responses you give people when your biggest goal in life is to be called a smartass at every opportunity. The good thing about having that goal is achieving it is as free as travelling to Spain.

You want to hear a great joke I just thought of all by myself? "Plagiarism: getting in trouble for something you didn't do."

Oh, come on. Whoever put this sign up definitely didn't make up this joke either.

Probably the only thing worse than nobody answering the phone would be one of the animatronics answering the phone, so it's better to just not risk it.

8. Oh, I know this one!

Reddit | MrWitherSkull

This is like one of those math word problems from elementary school, except there's no problem to solve and it just tells you the answer. C'mon, teach, give me a hard one!

9. Can I interest you in Russia's square footage?

Reddit | KappaDogeCSGO

11. For sale: baby clothes, very small.

Reddit | PossibleCook

I'll have to make note of this one for when I have babies someday. After all, who's going to teach them that baby clothes are smaller than most adult clothes if not their mother?

12. This kid is going places. The dog will go too, but just a lot slower.

Reddit | Firest0ne

I might steal this one the next time I have to fill out a form that asks me to circle my gender. If this artist's depiction of the dog is accurate, neither of us would be lying.

Did he say his outlook was not so good? That's what I'd say if I drank a Magic 8-Ball and started dying. Your last words should always be a joke or pun of some sort, in my opinion.

14. Just the facts, ma'am.

Twitter | @KeetPotato

It's important to consider everything when investigating a crime. At least, I think it is, and I watch a lot of crime investigation TV shows so I'm kind of an expert on the subject.

Tumblr | deepseathoughts

16. You've got yourself a deal!

Reddit | Bainn41

17. Happy ex-girlfriend, happy life.

Reddit | hybridtheory1331

Referring to someone you're married to as your ex-girlfriend is only one step below referring to them as your future ex-wife. The only difference is one is already true, while the other one is only going to come true if you don't stop saying it.

Reddit | Llama-thrust

You know, when you think about it like this, there are a surprising number of ways to prevent old age as long as you do them while you're driving. If you don't drive, don't worry — most of them work while you're swimming too.

That's what I thought.

Reddit | Aplombjon

It's strange, but I got the exact same result back from my last blood test. Does this mean if you've never gotten a DNA test, there's a non-zero chance you might not have DNA?

23. Do you want fries with that transaction?

Reddit | Redediteded

It never occurred to me before to use resume-building language on dating sites. You're not lying, and you're showing a creative grasp on the English language. That's a win-win.

Okay, okay. I know this isn't helpful if you want to know how tall Mark Ruffalo is. Let me help you out here: Mark Ruffalo is roughly 1.2 times the average ground level of the Maldives above sea level.
