Ten Clickbait Headlines I’ve Discovered Around My House During Quarantine

Every room I walk into these days, each time I look in the mirror, even when I’m out working in the yard, they’re waiting for me. 

Salacious, pointless, yet unavoidable. Clickbait has stepped over from the digital realm into the realm known as IRL. 

It’s probably because of the pandemic, right? Too much time at home, too much time online, or maybe a combination of both? I dunno. But I figured I’d share the headlines to some of the articles from my own life, articles that are largely devoid of meaningful content and exist only to get your attention.
