Don't mind me if this is old news to anyone...But I came across this video tonight and I could not decide if I had just witnessed the single most terrifying conversation I've ever heard or some sort of brilliant parody. So I checked out her YouTube channel and, although this particular video is convincingly real, the others seemed like a LonelyGirl-esque hoax. Pretty positive it is.
if so..................... genius.
Poe's Law relates to the impossibility of parodying extremism. In particular, it addresses the difficulty of an independent observer being able to distinguish fundamentalism from parodies of fundamentalism.
The Law states:
“ Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won't mistake for the real thing. ”
It was originally formulated by Christianforums.com user Nathan Poe.
