Have you seen the picture floating around Facebook of the group of priests who took a selfie and posted on the phone owner’s wall to let them know he’d left his phone behind him? Well, it may have been an elaborate setup.
Andrew, the alleged phone owner, was apparently just looking for his 15 minutes of fame. And it seems to have worked. A user posted on Reddit that Andrew was just looking to get on The LAD Bible. Reddit user Skreamie posted, “I and my mates know Andrew and he is not a church goer and none of these priests are even a part of our parish. He done it to get onto The LAD Bible."
They didn’t offer any proof, and it’s not like people lie on the internet, right?! However, the picture of the priests comes from the website of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, American National Catholic Church. The picture from April 6th features the same smiling priests that apparently found Andrew’s phone.
Posting fake status updates for internet attention? That’ll be five Hail Mary’s and three Our Father’s.
