The Unintended Humor of the Whisper App

whister

If you haven’t heard of Whisper yet, allow me to introduce you. Whisper (or Whisper on PSU on Facebook) is a mobile app where users are encouraged to anonymously post secrets with clever or artsy pictures as the backdrop. While the idea is basically the same as PostSecret, it’s become quite a popular outlet among students on campus to post their deepest, darkest, and interesting secrets.

Some of the Whispers are quite sad and personal, of which I would suggest to avoid at all costs unless you enjoy reading about other people’s misfortunes or the feeling of being sad. Aside from the people who have legitimate and depressing secrets, the best people on Whisper fall into one of these categories:

  1. The “I bet I can find a girlfriend on this app” crowd
  2. The “I really want to tell people about my sexual experience” crowd
  3. The “I don’t know what Whisper is but I’ll post anyways” crowd

Here are a few examples:

And this next Whisper…

Which received this response:

I’m not entirely sure why people want to jack off in Old Main or talk about their in-class boners, but hey, who am I to judge? Just do you Penn State!

As always, let us know about any other funny/outrageous Whispers in the comments!
