This Hilarious New Meme That Combats Lies Is Perfect For Almost Every Occasion

Screengrab Youtube/wintermoot

In the age of social media it's gotten pretty hard to cut through all the fake news and the lies we sometimes tell ourselves, but a new meme featuring Star Trek's Jonathan Frakes is ready to cut right to the bone.


Though Jonathan Frakes will always be hailed by fans for his role as Jean-Luc Picard's "Number One", Commander William T. Riker, older millennials will probably remember Frakes' three seasons as host of the Syfy channel's Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction.

The paranormal anthology series which ran from 1997 to 2002 featured a number of logic defying tales each episode and challenged viewers to determine which were real and which ones were made up.

At the end of each story Frakes would clue viewers in on whether the story was true or false, employing an arsenal of pithy quips like "You're wrong". "Not this time" or "It's a total fabrication" when the story wasn't true.

For reasons we may never know Youtuber wintermoot decided to compile 47 seconds of Franks' denials and in the process may have created the greatest response to lies and falsehoods the internet has ever seen.

Straight and to the point it's pretty hard to argue with Jonathan Frakes. Once Twitter got a hold of it, the supercut quickly achieved meme status.

The 47-second clip seemed perfect for almost every occasion.








Like the lies we sometimes tell ourselves.








Or the "maybe not so true" things we tell others.









It even seems to work with the truth we just don't feel like hearing.





It's not the first time Frakes has been turned into a meme.

On Star Trek: The Next Generation the actor's signature style when grabbing a seat was eventually dubbed "the Riker Maneuver" by fans.

And this time around the actor has graciously embraced his new meme status.

Warning: There may be spoilers if you have not watched the series finale of Game of Thrones.

Emilia Clarke wanted to ensure Daenerys Targaryen would nail that war-mongering scene in the final episode of Game of Thrones.

The 32-year-old actress – who portrays Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains (that's one character) – did what was necessary to convincingly portray the chilling moment as she spoke in Dothraki and Valyrian.

Who was her inspiration? Dictators like Adolf Hitler, of course.

Speaking with Variety, Clarke said she had to learn many fake languages for her speeches, but Daenerys's final address for her troops was by far the most challenging.

Halsey has paid off a fan’s speeding ticket after the woman claimed she was driving too fast because she was enjoying her new single "Nightmare".

Twitter user Francesca claimed she was driving home from Pennsylvania State University when she was stopped for speeding.

“I got pulled over… for the first time ever and when asked why I was going 99 in a 70 I was dangerously close to admitting I was bangin out to Halsey’s new song Nightmare,” she said on social media.

“What’s your Venmo. I’ll pay your ticket. Drive safely please!” Halsey said on Twitter.

The singer’s music video for Nightmare, starring Debbie Harry and Cara Delevingne, was released on May 16, and has already reached over 15.5 million views on YouTube.

The original tweet was liked over 4,000 times, and caught the attention of Halsey herself, who transferred Francesca 250 US dollars for the ticket.


Needless to say the interaction has gotten quite a lot of attention. We all stan a queen that supports her fans as much as they support her.



Once the receipt had been paid, Francesca said she “will never forget your kindness and will continue blasting your music forever (just at a safer speed). I’ve never been more grateful or felt less deserving.”

A woman in New York has been praised by police for alerting them to a possible suicide attempt after she mistook a closed umbrella for a person wearing a "Handmaid's Tale" costume. Casey McCormick tweeted she thought she saw “a woman dressed as a handmaid about to jump from a building” and called 911.

The sighting turned out to be a table umbrella which, from a distance, looked much like a handmaid from the seminal Margaret Atwood novel "The Handmaid’s Tale".

The New York Police Department’s news account made it clear on Twitter that McCormick had done the right thing in alerting the authorities.

“Blessed be the umbrella. Thank you Casey and the @POPSUGAR team for alerting us to this crime, glad we could save the day,” they tweeted. “Jokes aside, if you’re ever hesitant about calling 911 – don’t be! We take all calls seriously, and worse case we get to go home with a great story.”

“Better safe than sorry!” one Twitter user replied.
