While Pinterest may not be as popular as Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr, it remains a popular social network for many, and produces an interesting assortment of content.

The Pinterest board Real Taylor Swift Quotes, brought to us by user Emily Pattinson, is a fascinating board in particular, featuring images of the singer overlaid by inspirational quotes that are attributed to her. "It isn’t history that makes heroes. It’s heroes that make history," reads one such quote.

In reality, they’re really quotes from Hitler.

The most interesting (tragic?) part of story is the positive reception the photos are getting from Taylor Swift fans, many of whom seem oblivious to the goal of the prank.

The New York Post reports that one photo of Swift and her guitar, accompanied by the quote "Do not compare yourself to others. If you do so, you are insulting everyone" (another inspirational quote from the Third Reich dictator) had been repinned approximately 300 times.


Whether Pattison is mocking the fans themselves remains unclear. She did take down her board following the sensational reaction it received online, but fortunately for satirists everywhere, she recently put the board back up. Check it out here.

You'll notice that the Swift images are also accompanied by quotes from Joseph Stalin and Osama Bin Laden. Regardless of the intent behind the photos, it remains an interesting commentary on the nature of fandom.

Some users have since gone to Reddit in response to the 'Swiftler' mashup, according to Buzzfeed, which has produced several similar images, but with one major difference. Can you tell what it is?
