Are you sure you wanted to hit 'post'? Hilarious gallery shows off ill-advised social media updates including photos of a funeral and a father leering at his OWN daughter

  • Comedy gallery shows the flip-side of social media, when bad taste runs amok??
  • Ill-advised posts include shots of a son toasting his grandmother with beer...while driving a car and next to images of her funeral
  • And a hapless police department trying to catch a criminal are caught out...by said criminal who spots his own mugshot on Facebook

A comedic gallery of hapless Facebook posts shows just what happens when you press send without thinking first.

There's the sneak who tried to photograph an image of a 'hot girl' on public transport, only to find they'd put the flash on the camera - and she very soon knew she was being snapped.?

Take the criminal who responded to his own wanted poster with relish - leaving police frustrated and none the wiser as to his whereabouts.?
