This past weekend Jews the world over participated in the holiday of Yom Kippur – the day of atonement – in which we confess to, and seek forgiveness for, the transgressions we’ve amassed over the course of the year. While our old-country ancestors may have been limited to confessing their annual sins within the confines of their shtetl synagogue, These days, we have a host of options with which we can broadcast – anonymously – our various misdeeds.
With that in mind, and with help of our friends at the anonymous sharing app Whisper we posed a simple question:
To be honest, we weren’t sure what people would feel comfortable confessing to. As you’ll see, though, people evidently had a lot to get off their chests this year. From sex and drugs to bacon and beyond, the Whisper community was refreshingly candid about their past year’s misdeeds. Here, then, are the best, funniest, and most profound anonymous Yom Kippur Whispers of the year:
Sex AND Drugs:
The Kitchen Sink:
And our personal favorite…
Whatever this is:
Yom Kippur may have come and gone, but the sins and confessions continue all year round over at Whisper. Download their free, anonymous app, see what other things people are atoning for, and maybe even share some transgressions of your own. Who knows? Maybe by next Yom Kippur, you’ll be an online atonement pro.
