LOCAL AUTHOR SHOCKED!!! Here’s what happened next…
Sydney author, Elizabeth Lancaster, expressed utter dismay that she could still be drawn in by clickbait headlines.
‘I try to avoid them,’ said a contrite Lancaster. ‘All the warning signs were there – the ALL CAPS, the exclamation marks, the implausibility. Obviously I’d skipped past WHY I MARRIED MY DEAD BROTHER – TWICE!!! But I guess after that anything seems reasonable.’
So what was the headline that drew her in?
PERSONAL TRAINERS HATE HER!!! How 42 year-old woman defies aging with one simple trick!
‘There was no simple trick,’ said Lancaster. ‘I was left with that gross feeling you have after eating too many corn chips. I’ve definitely learned my lesson.’
Lancaster is now considering setting up a support group for others trying to kick the addictive, time wasting, and ultimately soul-destroying habit of scrolling through vacuous news sites.
