Noah Paul, a 15-year-old from Oklahoma, received a mysteriously juicy text on Monday afternoon from someone who identified herself as "Helen."
And things quickly got heated.
Paul shared the text on Twitter, and people were entranced by the boiling Mom Drama:
It plays like a scene right out of one of the Real Housewives shows. Whoever this "Helen" is, she is catty. And "Christi" better watch her back. And probably "Brittney" too, for that matter.
But what exactly did she do? What horrific transgressions were enacted by the young girl that got her banned from *heavens no* the cul de sac barbecue! What a cruel and unusual punishment, we must know what crime was committed that resulted in such a horrible verdict for the young child. No chips. No potato salad. No overcooked burgers and wizened hot dogs. NONE OF IT.
Twitter was obsessed:
And they wanted Paul to add fuel to the already-raging fire:
There were some pretty apt comparisons:
But wait. It gets better.
Paul then received a second text 3 hours later:
Hold up. Brittney and Caitlin are teenagers?? That was unexpected.
Twitter was shocked:
But before things could get out of control, there was another plot twist: turns out, Helen, Christi and their out-of-control daughters don't exist. Paul had been pranked.
"The night before, I went to a football game and I made a bunch of new friends," he told Buzzfeed News. "I found out those friends gave another friend of mine my cell phone number without my knowledge."
Even though it was all a prank, Paul wasn't upset. "It doesn't really matter that it wasn't a real person, in my opinion," he said. "I'm glad people got some laughs out of it, I sure did!"
Well played, pranksters. Well played.
