A hilarious web saga begins with an image of an alleged Amy Schumer-look-alike
If it’s actually true that everybody’s obtained a doppelgänger on the market someplace, Amy Schumer’s might need been discovered.
The saga of the comic’s lookalike started — as so many sagas on the web do — on what Snopes.com says is a parody web site referred to as the Celina 52 Truck Stop. Earlier this week, their Facebook account posted an image of “Amelia” that lit up the web, and her resemblance to Schumer wasn’t the one factor that instantly made the pic go viral.
“Who says only men drive trucks?? Big Rig driver Amelia stopped in this morning to redeem her Cranking The Hog Reward Points for this brand new mini fridge valued at over $500 due to the Monster Energy branding. Thanks for continuing to let us service you!” the picture’s caption learn, and truthfully, there’s lots to unpack there earlier than you even take within the particulars of the image.
People naturally had quite a lot of questions. Personally, I need to know the way I can join “Cranking The Hog Rewards,” and what else you’ll be able to redeem your factors for in case you’ve already obtained a Monster Energy branded mini-fridge. But a very powerful query of all was posed on Twitter by @AikinNorb, who drew consideration to an indication within the background of the image studying “STOP Pooping In Our Parking Lot.”

Apparently issues get a bit of wild at truck stops. Celina 52 added much more gas to the fireplace with a follow-up tweet that someway managed to take Amelia’s story in an much more weird route (not a straightforward feat while you’ve already obtained everybody speaking about car parking zone poops).

Amelia (who might or might not really exist in actual life) might apparently not get pleasure from her Monster Energy mini-fridge in peace, not when the folks of the web may suppose her a cold-blooded killer. “Prize winner Amelia wanted us to point out that her teardrop tattoo is not because she murdered anyone. She accidentally killed a pedestrian once after falling asleep at the wheel and got the tattoo to honor their memory.” Which is actually candy, when you concentrate on it.

A chef’s kiss to her for the emoji selection, and clearly to whoever thought up this hilarious story within the first place. Who is aware of how a lot of it (if any of it) is actual — Snopes isn’t even ready to challenge a ruling on whether or not the Amelia within the pic is an precise particular person, or whether or not it’s a doctored picture of Schumer herself — however the laughs it dropped at the web had been undoubtedly 100% real.
