Powerball and Forehead Tattoos – Top Ten Questionable GoFundMe Campaigns

Jan 29

Used to be you had to wear a fake girl-scout uniform and go door-to-door with a cookie order form or collect pledges to walk from New York to Idaho to scam people out of their money. Now pretty much anyone who wants money for pretty much anything can use online crowd-funding. In some cases, you can actually be successful in getting money from people, too.

So now that you have your tax return, you’re probably feeling like you ought to share the wealth and send at least one percent of your refund to someone in need. Here are our choices for who you should definitely not send money to:

NUMBER TEN:

 

forehead tattoo removal

Forehead tattoos are the new mid-lower-back tattoos.

Not only did this pot head (no pun intended) raise more than enough money to get her tat removed, she also had at least two offers to pay for the entire process. It makes you feel like what the heck, get that idiotic tattoo in a stupid place! Getting it removed again is a cake-walk!

NUMBER NINE:

birthday tattoo

I’ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours…

On the subject of tattoos, who could resist sending money to this guy?

NUMBER EIGHT:

powerball loser

I done spended all my savings on them big lotto ticket thingies. I don’t know much about math but I reckoned I had a pretty dang good chance of winnin’ if I bought all them tickets!

I wanted to share this campaign with you for the lolz, but GoFundMe for some reason took it down. I don’t know, I thought it seemed legit. Here’s what the woman in question had to say to her GoFundMe friends:

powerball loser

She EXPECTED to win.

NUMBER SEVEN:

pot brownies

This *ahem* chocolate lover could use a friendly handout.

The Chocolate Leaf Bakery, eh? Yeah… I don’t think that’s a chocolate leaf per se. Unless they mean the chocolate AND leaf bakery…

NUMBER SIX:

barbie house and dolls

Come on, kid, at least give us a smile if you expect us to line your PayPal account for that dream house.

Geez, I find it difficult to believe that in a whole month not ONE person sent 500 dollars to this orfen whose mom said she should come here…

NUMBER FIVE:

cummins gofundme

Already has a cummins, what more could he possibly need?

What even is a cummins? I’m gonna be honest, Big Tex, I don’t care. Maybe daddy cut you off from the bank account for a reason… But good luck with getting that $10K. You’re off to a great start. (Reading this again, I’m beginning to question whether it’s actually a joke… maybe? Could anyone be this much of an asshat?)

NUMBER FOUR:

fallout 4 party gofundme

Translation: If you buy me a video game I’ll have a party.

Come on, you want to be the first to give, don’t you? We know there are lots of babies with incurable diseases, people whose houses burned down, and families who can’t afford a decent funeral for their deceased loved ones, but this guy is desperately in need of Fallout 4! Come on, people!!

NUMBER THREE:

obama gun control

This one might actually be a joke.

John Wayne here is only asking for a dollar for those billboards (bullboards?); is that so much to ask, folks? I just want to point out with number three here that GoFundMe made it against their rules to fund for abortion,  pornography, “ending the life of an animal,” or gambling, but funding gun-totin cousin-screwin pick-up-truck-drivin trophy-huntin trailer-park-residin pit-bull-fightin redneck propaganda crap is okay. Questionable…

NUMBER TWO:

anti trump gofundme

If you only donate to one assclown on our top-ten list, please let it be this guy!

Still on the topic of political propaganda, If this picture isn’t enough to convince you, read what Louis had to say about his campaign:

anti trump gofundme

It’s funny and true. Now this is a bandwagon I’ll jump on!

“Toxic hairclown!” Classic!

But what is the most questionable use of GoFundMe I could find? Look out for…

NUMBER ONE!:

puke fines gofundme

This is truly what growing up is all about.

I like this one because not only is it a cause I can really get behind, it is also so poetic. Almost lyrical. Taylor Swift, look out!

And that concludes our list for the top ten most ridiculous uses of crowdfunding site GoFundMe. Do you agree with our list? Have you seen something even stupider? Drop us a line or leave a comment.
