There's an funny trend on the web wherein people take a selfie of themselves pretending to sleep, then claim that their (most likely fictitious) significant other "caught" them sleeping. It all started with one woman who Snapchatted a photo of herself "asleep" along with the caption, "Bae caught me slippin'. Love him. Goodnight from us."  Unfortunately for her, a mirror in the background showed that there was no boyfriend/bae to be found. She was simply Forever Alone and hilariously clueless about how cameras and mirrors work. OOPS.

These popular pictures inspired the "Bae Caught Me Sleeping" meme. Basically, people are now intentionally making obviously-posed "caught sleeping" images just to make us laugh, which is pretty awesome.

Check out some of the funniest "Caught Sleeping" images ever, and let me know if you can tell which ones are posed, and which ones are pathetically real!

Another dude who has mastered the "foot" selfie! This one is especially creepy because he looks a bit... dead. Nobody is that still when they sleep!
