The entire internet is going batshit over this poor girl who was oppressed at work but struck back at The Man by quitting and e-mailing around 33 photos of her writing on a whiteboard, outing her boss for playing Farmville.
The entire internet was also apparently born yesterday. Seriously, have people never seen a fake before? Because this is SCREAMING fake. In all caps.
First of all, who does something like this and doesn't post it on their own blog/tumblr/twitter but instead posts it on a comedy content site?
Second, who publicly and dramatically quits their job (with the exception of JetBlueGuy) but doesn't leave any trace of a real name or contact info for potential new employers to get in touch?
Also, 33 photos? Really? Someone is trying way too hard. Two, maybe three photos would have been a little more realistic. Five tops. 33, people? Totally fake.
And if you need more proof, the guys behind that site have done this before. And then there's also this photo casting ad, spotted by James Urbaniak on twitter which could be more proof or could be Inception-level meta pranks.
So yeah, you all just got trolled. Lulz.
UPDATE: Thanks to BillR in the comments for directing us to the actress, Elyse Porterfield's twitter stream where she confessed to playing the role of Jenny.

This is truly a golden age for fans of a big ginormous TV screen. Not too long ago, to buy a television over 40 inches usually meant wheeling one of those massive Mitsubishi or Toshiba projection monoliths into your home, consuming a vast portion of any room at a cost of potentially $7,000 to $8,000. […]
Nearly 30 years after it started its run as the most dominant productivity software ever created, the Microsoft Office suite of programs are now virtually synonymous with personal computing. From its days bundled with Windows to its current life as Office 365 cloud-based apps, there’s no reason to think perennial hits like Word, Excel and […]
Photography isn’t just about lighting and composition anymore, especially when you’re shooting with your smartphone. While a wealth of expertise can absolutely help you grab better images, sometimes it’s just about having a great light or an amazing smoothing gimbal to instantly elevate your Instagram pics and other social videos from meh to standout. To […]
