17 Cringeworthy Moments People Didn’t Realize Who They Were Talking To

We all put our feet in our mouths from time to time. Not all of us, however, have embarrassed ourselves so thoroughly as the following people did. From not knowing celebrities to trying to explain the plot of a TV show to the show’s creator, these people take the cake for the most cringeworthy moments on the internet.

Look alive out there. You never know when you’re going to cite a source written by the person you’re talking to. The great thing about being a comedian is that the second you tell someone you’re a comedian, the person will tell you how to do comedy. It’s great. I wonder how many surgeons explain a procedure to their patients and get to here “I tried surgery once in college, but it wasn’t for me. I did a great job though.” One day, I’ll be famous and someone will say something back to me that I myself said on a podcast.

Living for that day is all I have.

Here are the funniest and saddest moments where people tried to explain something without knowing who they were talking to:
