## LilShitty1

## Quacksalvez

1 Week(s) AgoGuys, there's a snapchat text if you click on the picture. OP isn't asking the question they're facepalming at the person in the photo asking the question.

I thought the exact same thing too.

## Epidemiolog76

1 Week(s) AgoGawd it was hurting my brain. I was like "is 6 plus 12 not 18? Is 6 plus 6 not 12? Is 12 divided by 2 not 6? Which of these is a lie?!?!!?"

1 Week(s) Ago'How is 18oz 50% more than 12oz?!?!?!'

50% extra

50% of 12 is 6.

## thelesliemommy

1 Week(s) AgoI don't know what is funnier, the people losing their shit and trying to prove the math (the facepalm is that the idiot didn't know the math was right), or the amount of idiots thinking the math is wrong.

This whole post has become r/facepalm worthy...just for these ignorant comments.

## shewy92

1 Week(s) AgoThe facepalm is of the Snapchat text. 50% of 12 is 6. This mustard has 50% more than the 12 oz. So it has 6 oz more, which would be 18 oz.

## Schematism

1 Week(s) AgoThe real facepalms in the comment section.

## TobbyTukaywan

1 Week(s) AgoOof almost downvoted

## Act1_Scene2

1 Week(s) AgoWhile I get the facepalm is the snapchat text, why does French's need to tell us that 18oz is 50% more than their own 12oz size? Why stop there? Did you realize Kraft's 24oz mustard is TWICE as much as the 12oz?

"50% more free" - is something to put on a label.

"50% better tasting" - maybe

"50% fresher" - maybe not

50% more than a smaller size? Yeah, thanks, Capt Obvious.
