9. Hercules the giant dog
In 2007 this picture of a giant dog named Hercules started popping up everywhere on the internet. There was indeed a dog named Hercules who was thought to be the biggest in the world, but it was not the mastiff in this photo and it was not as big as this one. The image was thought to be nothing more than a prank by somebody with good Photoshop skills.
