An X user, @_Mashudu_M, posted a hilarious short clip showing the predicament.

The caption read:

"Online dating (crying face emojis)."

In this case, the emojis showed how what you order vs. what you get could be a nasty business.

The 20-second clip starts with the person filming looking down at their phone and zooming in on a picture of their date.

The camera pans up to their supposed date, who, noticing the scepticism, nonchalantly enjoys the plate of food in front of them.

Panning back down, the camera reveals another picture of the alleged date before again showing the real person, this time putting in a massive mouthful.

In the same motion, they sit up and make a funny face, almost as if giving a big "eff you" to her perplexed date.

But it was anything but a catfish as, from looking closely at the phone pics, it looked like one person, given their pronounced facial features.

Netizens' funny bones tickled

It goes without saying that the post gained massive traction online after garnering a staggering 2.2 million hits.

Additionally, the post garnered 13000 likes, 3900 bookmarks, 3200 reposts and almost 1000 replies.
