Would you say that in the case of this dad joke, the guy really put his foot in it? Because we totally would! That way, you get two silly jokes for the price of one!
There’s absolutely nothing shady about that deal, is there? After all, why would you settle for just one face-palm when you can be twice as exasperated by us? Sadly, it’s not super inspired, as it’s missing one crucial thing — our lightbulb moment!
Romantic courtship is no easy area to navigate. Just like maneuvering a minefield, the dating game has plenty of rules, pitfalls, and cautionary tales. One of the most basic cardinal laws is, of course, no messing about with married people.
Apparently, even when it comes to your own wife, the guidelines say, “No flirting.” This guy didn’t make the rules, he’s just following them to a tee. We’ll see how he feels when she puts down the law.
News to Us
We’re pretty sure that it’s common knowledge that the ultimate sign that you’ve had a night of truly deep and restorative sleep is waking up with those pillow crease lines on your face. It’s just indisputable evidence of your deep slumber.
But, have you ever wanted to have those lines on your face without getting any proper rest — just for the aesthetics? Because that’s the only thing we can imagine corduroy pillows would be good for.
We’re probably not the only cooks in this kitchen who like a good food pun — they’re just deliciously satisfying. This one, while horribly funny to us, might be especially disastrous.
You see, in the crush of ingredients, this iceberg might spring a leek in your salad, and that would be a disaster of Titanic proportions. This just went out of the frying pan and straight into the fire, didn’t it?
It’s a dad joke, so obviously, it makes us want to cringe. But, in the case of this tweet, we think it might also make us cry (and not from laughter). This croc dad joke was posted by Terri Irwin — the late Steve Irwin’s widow.
Looks like in an attempt to be both mom and dad to their kids, Terri also took it upon herself to make cheesy and animal-related dad jokes. Honestly, this is incredibly wholesome, especially since she added a photo of their son.
Yes, we know this joke probably made you audibly groan. But, guess what? We don’t care due to two reasons. One, the whole point of a dad joke is to make everyone but the person who made the joke cringe and sigh.
And more importantly, two — because we think it’s absolutely adorable, and this makes us grin with joy every time we read it. This is exactly what a dad joke should be; a silly pun that works for a six or 60-year-old.
Some dad jokes are short and sweet, as they get their point across in less than 10 words. Others are somewhat more convoluted — instead of getting straight to the point, they take you on a journey toward the punchline.
This one certainly feels like quite a rollercoaster, but at the end of the day, it’s all about timing — and this joke sticks the landing (on the watch) as it nails its punchline by the end. Plus, who doesn’t love a bit of poetic justice in their humor?
This is going to get a little bit strange but stay with us. So, you know how your boss sort of becomes your emotionally distant parent at work? Well, can you imagine your grumpy boss making this joke?
(Boss, if you’re reading this, we promise we’re not talking about you! You’re more like the cool uncle!) Do you think if we make this joke we’re officially not getting our end-of-year bonus due to how cringe it is? Word.
To a Tee
Dad jokes aren’t just about lousy puns and silly punchlines. Sometimes, they’re just about dads being dads — sharing their quirky humor with their family in an attempt to make their kids groan and laugh.
Julie’s dad went far out to make this embarrassingly funny photo during a family trip. This is one memory that he’s sure to want to share with the grandkids one day.
How do they say it goes with comedy? Something along the lines of setting up expectations and then subverting them is the key to a good joke, right? Anyway, we think this fantastically terrible joke nailed it.
After this, we almost wish we could have that drink with our friendly neighborhood spider(man). We think we’ll still stay far away from any real creepy crawlies, no matter how good they are at designing.
So, here’s the thing — we know that “which came first, the chicken or the egg” has been debated for decades as a deep philosophical question, but we honestly don’t get it. Thanks to our more recent understanding of science there’s only one answer.
The egg came first. Yep, it’s that easy — the egg is the only place where the genetic mutation that created the first chicken could have occurred. That’s it. And we don’t care which one gets delivered first from Amazon!
We honestly think that this joke is pretty dang clever, even if we hate horror. Sure, we understand the enjoyment that can come from a jump in adrenaline — like going on a rollercoaster — but enjoying being frightened?
That’s just weird. Are we actually supposed to like getting nightmares from imaginary scenarios? We just feel like the real world is kind of scary enough as it is. Thankfully, here, it’s balanced with a silly joke.
Another One Bites the Dust
Job interviews are tricky. On the one hand, you want to be sincere, open, and honest in your answers so that the interviewer knows you can be trusted to shoulder the responsibilities of the new job.
On the other hand, you need to show that you can be chill and funny to demonstrate your more friendly, social side so they know you’re a fun team player. We’re not sure, though, that you should use this specific joke to show all that…
Wouldn’t it be great if every office could be just like Dunder Mifflin? Let’s be honest — having Michael Scott as a boss is probably like non-stop dad jokes during work hours. Can you just imagine Dwight taking them at face value?
This joking security guard is bound to fit right in with Jim and Pam. Although, with the way his mind works, we’re not sure how secure the office would be… Thankfully, it’s all just paper, so who cares?
Full of Wind
As you probably know very well, a joke doesn’t need to be recited straight from the mouth of a certified father to be considered a top-notch dad joke. It must simply be groan-worthy and based on the silliest humor to be bestowed the honor.
Ana’s fan-tastic job is the perfect example of this guiding principle. Don’t worry, Ana — just like you, we happily giggled at your musical joke (and then proceeded to quickly unfollow you on Twitter).
The Empire Strikes Back
Are you really surprised that the myth, the legend, Mark Hamill responded to a fan with the most deadpan “dad” answer ever? Because we definitely are not. His character in Star Wars might not be a dad, but Hamill certainly is (he has three kids).
Although Luke isn’t much of a jokester, Hamill’s most famous voice-acting character is the Joker — and it definitely looks like Hamill has learned a thing or two from his on-screen personas.
Any husband to a woman should know by that point that if you ever try to “explain” something to her, she can and will find a way to throw it back at you. Trust us, no matter how clever you think you are, your wife is smarter than you.
So, we know this tweet is meant as just a joke, but we can absolutely bet that this exact scenario has happened in hundreds of homes around the world.
Hit and a Miss
Ah, fresh air, green grass, open skies, and a chill breeze — what’s not to like about having a quick and easy game of frisbee at your family picnic? Until, of course, your super competitive and aggressive family member joins the game.
Once they do, there’s nothing else you can do but run for your life and hope that you somehow manage to not make a complete fool of yourself as they throw that frisbee like the ancient weapon it once was.
Counts for Something
Here’s a fun bookish fact — Bram Stoker, who wrote the original Dracula, never set foot in his famous count’s home of Transylvania. He relied solely on books and atlases to describe the faraway land. Can you imagine doing that without Google Maps?
Of course, Dracula is hardly the only famous count out there. For this joke, we think we might need to acquire the services of a more fuzzy-fanged character — the Count from Sesame Street, of course.
You know that prank kids would do when a friend would fall asleep early at a slumber party (where they put his hand in water, and you probably know the rest)? Well, we can’t help but wonder if this is what happened here.
Sure, we know it’s just for the sake of the joke, but can you imagine a dream like the one described here? We’re honestly horrified. Great, this joke just unlocked a new nightmare we had no idea we had. Thanks a lot.
Nok it Out
Who says a joke needs an abundance of words to tickle our funny bone? Sometimes, simple is better. In this case, all that’s needed is a couple of words and two pics. As they say, a picture’s worth a thousand words.
For such a terrible joke (as all dad jokes should be), it’s incredibly effective with minimal effort — we’re pretty impressed. Can you just imagine your dad sending this to you as he lounges in his la-z-boy?
Just as a precaution… kids, don’t try this at home! Seriously, we mean it — don’t touch that socket until you’ve studied as many years as a certified electrician. Otherwise, we’re sure you’ll find yourself recreating this joke in real life.
Shockingly, we find this joke to be a safety hazard from how much it makes us groan. Can you get electrocuted from someone else’s terrible zinger? We just need to know, for, you know, research purposes.
A good dad joke works both on and off the page (or the phone screen, as the case may be). That means that it’s not enough for a punny gag to be funny in writing, it also has to sound just as hilarious (or cringy) out loud.
Sadly, this one only cuts it when written out. Sure, it was a long shot in the first place, as it’s mathematically improbable that a math joke would be funny — but then its value goes down to zero when you try to tell it to someone
Ain’t No Mountain High Enough
“Climb every mountain,” Maria sings in the Sound of Music. She continues, “Search high and low, Follow every highway, Every path you know,” which has us thinking, what exactly is she looking for us all those hills?
Could it be that up some far-off peak, there lies the ultimate treasure — the best dad joke ever? Judging by this tweet, sadly, we think not. Oh well, maybe try going down a valley next time?
You might like your yard to be leaf-free year round, but did you know for the sake of your garden, you shouldn’t actually throw all those leaves away? Just think about it, do you think anyone walks around the forest, raking away the leaves?
So, instead of throwing away all those leaves, leave them be — first, they’ll keep your plants covered and safer during the winter months, and second, they’ll quickly decompose into the ground and make your soil healthier. Bet you didn’t think you’d be getting gardening tips with this dad zinger.
Do you ever get those nights where you know you have to wake up extra early, so you resolve to get to sleep at a reasonable hour? But then, you start stressing that you might not be able to sleep.
So, you start counting exactly how long you have left to rest, and you stress even more over how little time you have. Then, by the time you wake up, you’ve only managed to sleep for like an hour? Yeah, that just sucks.
Do you think that the very first primitive humans who just discovered how to create tools and how very useful they could be, ever imagined that, one day, their great invention would be used as a cheap joke?
If they’re actually anything like us… we’re sure a few Neanderthal dads would have had a good laugh from this truly silly one-liner. At least now (thanks to the great shovel), we can put this joke where it belongs — six feet under.
It’s a Sign
We guess this guy’s dad really had a dead-end job. Geddit? ‘Cause he put up signs in streets — like dead-end signs? Okay, well, making dad jokes on the fly is harder than it looks!
Try it, and you’ll see. After all, there’s no road map to the perfect dad joke out there. If there was, though, we bet this dad stole it, along with all the signs! Yeah, that was terrible, too. Fine, we give up.
A Daily Reminder
Here’s something you don’t actually see all that much in dad jokes — self-deprecating humor — which, as we all know, is the superior form of humor when it comes to making people give you attention, whether it’s with a laugh or a sympathetic look.
But, you know what would make this the ultimate way for a dad to joke with his kids? All you would need to do is change one little word. Instead of “me,” just say “you” or the name of your angsty teenager!
Making You Stew
This is for any boomer dad out there who’s reading this — for the love of all that’s funny, change your password from “Password123.” We promise you, that’s the very first thing that any semi-competent hacker will try.
No, don’t change it to “12345678” because hat’s next on the hacker’s list. Honestly, using “stroganoff” as your password will probably actually keep you safe. At the very least, you’ll get a laugh anytime you type it in.
Pardon Our French
Parlez-vous français? If your answer is “heh?” we really hope you still get this joke because we think it’s freaking hilarious (pardon our French). We can totally see our dad make this silly gag whenever we make a dumb joke at his expense.
So, @DocAtCDI, you might have made us laugh, but you also probably got us in a bit of trouble with our own father. We just hope you’re a father yourself — otherwise, this joke might become a weird paradox that we just can’t handle.
A Daily Reminder
One of the hallmarks of a good joke (and not the cheesy Christmas movie kind of hallmark) is that it can keep working throughout your life. That probably makes this one by Oli only Semi-great.
That’s because it can only be used once a year to full effect. Luckily, when the festive season comes upon us, he can get it out of the attic… along with all those lovely Christmas decorations.
A Second Opinion
Did you hear this joke before? Probably not if you find this terrible joke weirdly relatable. Thankfully, it’s not unheard of to seek a second opinion when it comes to medical advice.
This is deaf-inetly one of the cringiest jokes on this list, but we still think the maker of it deserves to hear a little laugh from his audience (even if it’s forced).
In the timeless voice of John Travolta in Grease, “It’s electrifying!” This sweater is definitely the “one that [we] want.” If you didn’t just start singing the song in your head, what are you even doing here, youngster?
By the way, totally unpopular opinion, but it’s the right one, and you know it — Grease 2 was absolutely the superior movie. Nothing beats Michelle Pfeiffer singing from the top of a ladder that she wants a “Coooooooool Rider!”
What’s in a Name
Some people place great importance on the name they give their kid — as if that one little word is going to affect their child and the whole family for their entire life (which, of course, it totally does).
Others are a bit more cavalier about their choice… We’re honestly not sure where we’d place Tawdry’s friends, though. Is it genius, or is it horrible? Just wait until that kid is asked where his name is from, and then we’ll see.
Hi Soul Sister
One of the most important parts of being a parent, beyond making hilariously terrible dad jokes, is, you know, actually parenting your kids. That includes teaching your kids that they should be there to help each other, among other things.
Of course, in this endeavor, as with many others, humor is your friend. This joke, for example, is sure to make both your kids groan in painful shame that their dad makes such terrible jokes. But at least your kid has probably stopped crying by now, so everyone’s a winner.
Look, everyone, it’s a dad joke in the wild! That’s right, this tweet isn’t just sharing a terrible joke they thought up. This one was actually spontaneously given out around Kandice.
This just proves that a truly good joke is all about timing. This surgeon found the perfect opportunity to use his dadish humor. We wonder how long he’s been holding on to this funny line.
We’re not gonna lie — this joke actually had us laughing or giggling at least five times. Is it absolutely horrible and groan-worthy? Yes, of course it is (otherwise, it wouldn’t be on this list).
Is it also peak bro humor? We certainly think so. Will we be thinking about this joke long after we’ve finished this list? Absolutely! We can’t wait to share it with all our bro friends (can you tell we don’t actually have that many?).
As every kid knows, an important part of playing with toys is making all those fun action noises, just like in a comic book! And what are dads but overgrown children? So, is it any surprise that one would make this joke?
Plus, in true clever adult fashion, it mixes its humor with an incredibly popular meme template. Sure, it’s not exactly the most traditional dad joke out there, but we still think it’s terribly funny (and seriously adorable!).
This joke might have been purely told by Steve Harrison to be funny, but it somehow ended up somewhat educational. Yeah, we’re pretty surprised, too — who knew dads had actual useful and informative knowledge to impart?
So yeah, thanks to their yellowish-brown coats, camels do actually camouflage pretty well in the desert. Considering they’re probably the biggest animal out there in the heat, though, we have no idea why they would need to… We wonder if Steve has another joke that could teach us that.
So, here’s the thing… we know this is meant to be a joke, but have you ever seen the names of real racehorses? Because those are the real joke. Seriously, they’re all thinly-concealed puns and dad jokes.
That kind of makes sense when you consider who exactly is the audience of such races — mainly middle-aged men, right? So, next time you look at Phar Lap racing, consider how Mayo the horse wouldn’t look out of place.
Knock, knock. Who’s there? Peas. Peas who? Peas to meet you! …Did we just Google food knock-knock jokes? Yes, yes, we did — and we’re not ashamed of it one bit. That’s why Google is our best friend.
But, we do honestly think this dad joke is actually funny (in a “snort out your drink when you hear it the first time and get it” way). You know what’s gonna happen after the first time your dad hears it? He’ll totally keep knocking on the fridge door forever.
Ke$ha has long ago become a cash-making machine with her incredible beats and amazing musical heart. So, it’s no surprise that she made it so big internationally. But, what does happen to her name when she’s performing outside the US?
Do European musical festivals have to announce that “Ke-pound-ha” is about to take the stage? Honestly, that actually sounds pretty freaking awesome! Maybe @tooskinnymariah is on to something with their horrible dad joke… Now if only concert tickets only cost a pound (or a dollar).
Zero or Hero?
Okay, fine, we concede — this one is actually, truly, terrible. This might be one of the most groan-worthy jokes on this list, but you know what, it still made us chuckle!
But, let’s zero in on the problem here. This joke just doesn’t go the usual zero to 60 that dad jokes should go, even though it’s zero hour. Frankly, it’s a zero-sum game to think of all the reasons this joke gets a zero from us.
Going Down With the Ship
Here’s an interesting philosophical question — why are we (as a global culture) still so freaking obsessed with a ship that sunk in 1912? We have to wonder if it might be our modern version of Icrus, ya know, a warning to us to once again not fly too close to the sky.
Oh shoot, that was darker than we expected. Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled programming. Ahem… dad jokes are just the best and worst, right? This one sure is terrible and hilarious…
We have all seen them as we scroll through the feed of whatever social media, and we are enamored by photos that just seem too impossible to be real. Or at least too funny to be real. Whether it’s a pic perfectly snapped to make it look like there is a dog with a human body or a weird effect that makes a sink drain look like an eye, they are all entertaining. These people knew what they had and shared these amazingly funny and mind-bending images for all of us to enjoy. So we have compiled 45 photos that drove us crazy until we started paying attention. Maybe they will do the same thing for you!
OMG… Are You Serious?
When we first saw this image, we were concerned about this dog. It looks as if the dog has some sort of birth defect when it comes to its mouth, but upon further inspection, we realized something was in the dog’s mouth!
Ruby looks like she is enjoying a bone when you really get a good look. But the photo definitely had us freaking out and thinking that it was all one piece!
There are tons of cities that are built on hills across the globe. Most of the time, when homes are built there, they have to work with the landscape. When we first saw this, we thought maybe they decided to do the opposite.
But nope! This was just a perspective shift of the camera to make the road and trees look like they were straight. Because they did this, the house looks like it was built with a lean.
Stepping Up His Home Game
Scrolling through your feed, if you saw this pic, you would probably stop as we did. It definitely, at first glance, has one’s mind a little puzzled. After all, how can this even be a forced perspective shot?
That is because it isn’t, and once you really study the image, you soon see that the home is a model. As is the woman taking the photo. But they had us going for a minute!
Something Isn’t Right!
This dog has a long neck, right? And is super flexible! At least that is what you might think upon the initial inspection of the image! That face is probably what sells the idea, but if you look closer, there are actually two dogs here.
Even still, once the optical illusion is over, it’s still a pretty cute pic. Come on, this dog duo must be pretty close for the bigger one to let the little guy get away with his.
Avant Garde Gardening
No, you are not having vision problems, we promise! This image looks like the leaves are all out of focus, but that is just another optical illusion produced not by man’s hand but by mother nature’s.
When you get a closer look, the leaves are beginning to change on this tree. They are doing so in stages and from the first leaf back. This is what gives that blurry fading look. Good, we thought it was time to go to the eye doctor!
Let’s Play Fetch
Sometimes it is just the luck of the draw for someone to get a truly mind-bending image. Like this dog owner and their beautiful pup right here. It certainly looks like the dog is chewing on a branch of the tree.
However, that is all just a funny trick of the camera and a good angle. In fact, they were just playing fetch with a twig from the ground.
Excuse you! This image definitely had us taking a second look and a third – and fourth, to be truthful. This could be a hand puppet or a very interesting hand mitten. Or, of course, something much more disturbing. But none of these is the case.
After you look for a few seconds, you realize that the cat is just showing its human some love by wrapping its tail around their arm. This is just an unfortunate angle!
Rockin’ Levitation Trick
This image is definitely a mind twister until you think about it. Upon first glance, it looks like someone has some mad levitation skills – almost like there is a superhuman somewhere around this location.
When you look at the image closer, though, it is definitely just a shot of a rock someone has thrown in the air. Luckily, they set up their time-lapse setting and got this pretty cool shot so we can entertain ourselves!
This dog’s wistful look and the way they are lying on this sofa arm fooled us at first. The image definitely looks like the dog is handicapped and looking longingly at the dogs outside.
Where the latter is probably right, this dog actually has all four legs; you just have to look real close to see them folded up under their body. It is definitely a much cuter picture now that we know the dog is okay!
Social media has become an everyday part of human lives worldwide, but who knew that the bird world has also been engaged. No need to tweet that selfie, though, because it isn’t quite what it looks like.
When we came upon this image, we thought that it was a great falcon selfie. Then we noticed the human fingers and realized it was just a human taking a candid shot of a falcon on a rooftop.
What Big Teeth You Have!
This dog has a beautiful smile, but we were a little worried about his dental hygiene for just a minute. The way this picture is taken, it looks like he has some pretty sharp teeth to deal with, and e know we wouldn’t want to mess with them!
But then when we took in the whole image, we figured out that that was just the grating of the fence behind the smiling pooch!
Man’s best friend likes to do everything their humans do. This may include the martial art known as parkour, or free running. At least that’s what it looks like in this husky’s case. It is either that or this person has a super pup that can walk up walls.
Once we looked at the face, it was easy to see that this dog was in motion when the pic was snapped. Though this is a really cool photo and it definitely played with our minds for a little bit.
Is It Nap Time?
It didn’t take us long to figure this one out, but if you were just passing by it in a hurry, you might be a little baffled. The image definitely looks like the person has a dog face instead of a human one.
But as we said, it shouldn’t take you long to realize the truth. Though it is a fun picture, and if the camera was a little to the left, it might have taken us more time to figure it all out.
Painting the Sky
Forced perspective is a fun way to create not only interesting images, but travel photos too. This one was cleverly done, and though it didn’t keep us puzzled for as long as others on the list, it was still pretty mind-altering.
Though it is easy to see that it was just the right angle to get this image to look like the spray can be creating the clouds, it is a nice image. It is also a great representation of what artists can do!
All You Can Eat
Okay, we know that serving in the military can be stressful, but sometimes the soldiers have a little fun. This picture is a little trippy at first.
But eventually, you realize that this guy isn’t going to be able to eat a human, nor is he a giant. Once again, using forced perspective, this soldier had a little funin his few minutes of downtime.
Sometimes mother nature has a bit of a sense of humor too. When you first look at it, this picture definitely looks like some plump, well-dressed lips ready for a smooch. But once you realize all the green behind the plant, you can see that it is just a trick of the eye.
This plant, which is found in South and Central America, uses this covering to shield the flower. Eventually, the lips will part, and a beautiful flower will appear.
All Mixed Up
There is so much wrong with this photo. If you are not paying attention, this image may trip you out a bit. After all, the legs are in the completely wrong direction, and the guy has a very luscious beard. But looks can be deceiving!
Dissecting this image will reveal that there are two people in this image…a man and a woman. This makes everything make sense and it’s now way less creepy!
Ripples? Believe It Or Not!
This picture is a fun one and can be the perfect image for a bunch of inspirational memes. But since we haven’t gotten, that far we were just a little awed by the perfect timing of this image. It certainly appears that the gentleman is making some waves!
In reality, either something fell or was tossed into the water to make these big ripples, and the guy just snapped the image in the right position.
Where Is Fido?
When we stumbled upon this photo, we thought that maybe this was a stained carpet. After all, it is a light-colored carpet, and they are notorious for collecting or attracting dirt. But that was not the case!
In fact, it looks like there is actually a little pooch taking a nap where he knows no one can find him. That’s right! What better a place to get away from the grandkids than the shag rug you can blend into?!
So this may not have fooled us, but it is a design meant to tease the eyes and mind a bit. When you first look at it, you may think it is a cartoon, but nope, it’s just a shirt design.
This design has done a good job of playing with the visual perception of their audience. The model’s face sells it a bit too, as he looks like he is a little uncomfortable.
If this guy didn’t plan this, then this picture is a pretty happy coincidence. Like many of the images, we looked at this image only a little puzzled for a minute. It is a great example of optical illusion using perspective.
This guy is not playing soccer with the sun, but it certainly looks like it with the way the image was shot. This is another one of those images that we could see as an inspirational meme.
How Many Legs?!
Nature is strange. That is why sometimes there are animals and plants that have some interesting attributes. But there is no way that she would create a bird with this many legs and make some of them backwards.
When you see this image initially, that is what it looks like. This is not the case, though, as this is a mother bird protecting her little ones under her wings. It just looks weird at first!
Give Me a Hand
With the simple flip of a camera, this guy laying on a cobblestone street looks like he is holding on for his dear life. It’s almost an epic Tomb Raider moment.
But in truth, as we said, it is just some crazy guy lying in the middle of a stone street. The guy is really selling it too, and he may have fooled us for a hot second, but eventually, it all came to make sense.
Winter Is Coming
Nature is a magical thing, and sometimes it can be strange as well. Take, for instance, this flower that looks to be a skull as it is fading away for the winter. The first glimpse of this image was all we could see.
But after sitting and staring at the flower for a while, we finally could see it was just a coincidence that the petals were withering into this shape.
Just Chilling in a Temple
Sometimes images just happen, and other times they have to be crafted. This image is perception bending, to say the least, but it definitely took a little work. Uniquely laid out, these visitors to this temple certainly gave us something to think about.
Of course, if they really wanted to sell it, they would have hidden the trees and the rest of the temple. Once you see these, you are quickly aware of the staged effect of the image.
Give Me a Fish Face
“Under the sea! Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter…” This image makes you just want to hum that little ditty from that animated film by Disney. It also looks like this guy is better equipped to dive, seeing how he has gills and flippers.
Not really, but at a glance, that may be what you thought – it certainly was the first thought of ours. Then we remembered that this isn’t possible and spotted the snorkel behind the fish.
Camouflage Orange County Style
Dress for the destination, right? This is something that you may hear when you are getting ready to head out for a vacation. This is not quite what those that say this mean. Blending into your surroundings is not necessary.
However, this woman seems to have thought differently. So much so that if you are quick to look at the photo, you may think there is just a floating head and no body.
I See You!
Looking into a cup of coffee is the way that many people spend their early mornings. But few have a view like this. Upon looking down, this person was greeted with an owl face looking back.
This is not an owl, though. In fact, this is actually the result of dropping a few small potato snacks into a cup of coffee. It just so happened to look like a beautiful owl face looking back at you.
Nothing To See Here
If it wasn’t for all the statues and spire work, you might not even know there was a church here thanks to the unfortunate but beautiful choice in color. It almost looks like the rest of the church is still downloading.
The church is beautiful, though, and once you see the edges and depth of the building, you soon realize that the person that picked the paint for the renovation wanted to pay homage to the beautiful skies of whatever country this little church is in.
Honey, I Shrunk The Chopper
This looks like a still from the latest Hollywood monster film. Maybe a reboot of the classic Them? But in truth, it is just another example of that forced perspective that is super popular on Instagram.
Once you really look at it, you can tell that this is just a creative angle and some very epic mood lighting. That, with a perfectly timed press of the camera button on a cell phone, and you have this pretty epic shot!
Look Into My Sink
Look into my eyes. You are getting sleepy! This image had us tripping out when we first saw it. It looked like a really intense eye staring back at us, that may be on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
Then we noticed the soap suds, and it all disappeared to reveal nothing more than some water draining down a sink after the nightly dishes. How quick did this person have to be to get the picture, though?
Completing the Circle
Clever placement of the setup? Or happy coincidence? Either way, at first that beautiful full moon looked like it fit in with the Olympic rings over the stadium.
It’s the perfect way to complete the image, as it is an event that is seen and attended by people from all over the world. This is why it was easy for us to figure out that this just was a lucky break for the person who snapped this photo.
I Could’ve Been a Dancer!
There are so many things that caught our attention when we saw this photo. The placement of the dog’s head, the fact the dancer was advertising for a performance called Dreams, and that it was summer in the park.
This is probably why the dog’s face had us enamored, and for just for a split second, we could see that the dog was dreaming of a summer in the park.
Llama Get This Straight
It took us a minute to realize that there was a person’s head behind the face of the llama. In fact, it was so well placed that this optical illusion had us rolling in the aisles.
After all, how funny would it be if this llama was sporting some sketchers and a hoodie. Too bad it wasn’t real, just a clever angle and a person with a great sense of humor.
Outta the Horse’s Mouth
Disturbing and a little strange comes to mind when we look at this image. After all, it certainly looks like this horse is having an alien moment with another horse emerging from its mouth.
But if you look closer, you can see the other horse’s body and legs behind the laughing horse that takes the main stage in the photo. We are glad we saw that, otherwise, we may still be trying to figure out what the heck we were looking at.
Peekaboo, I see you! This looks like a very lengthy cow! After all, he is hidden by this building, right?! The truth is that after the initial chuckle and a few seconds of thought, the solution for this image is pretty self-explanatory.
No, it is not a wormhole. It is, in fact, simply two cows, but both the other options are way more entertaining. What a great illusion!
This tram in Asia is painted concrete grey to keep it from being too noticeable. Because of this, when passing some buildings, the tram looks like it is more than just a double-decker. In fact, it looks pretty roomy from this angle.
We know it’s just the building behind it, but we made you think about it for a second, right? It does kind of look like #26 is a little roomier than other options.
Who needs a tube when you can just glide along the surface of the water like a water-born superman (we know what you are thinking; isn’t that just Aquaman, maybe?!). This guy looks like he is super buoyant, but it’s all a trick of the eyes.
If you look real close, you will see that he is actually precariously perched on a few river stones. That had to be uncomfortable, so thumbs up for the dedication to the ‘Gram!
That’s A Wrap
This is a pretty good job. If it hadn’t been for the whipping of the hair, we might have thought this was a really cool convertible pulled up alongside this van. We mean, look at the placement of the wheels! And the depth perception of the image is pretty spot on!
In the end, we all can see that it is just a wrap on the van. Which is pretty good since it looks like that is what they are selling.
18 Wheel King
We all know that as this trick passed, it would be pretty eye-catching, and it looks pretty realistic. That is, until we get to the end, and you see the drawings of bananas. This is a dead give away that our eyes have been fooled.
The woman seems a little unbalanced color-wise too, upon further inspection, but if you were passing this on the road, you might be convinced that you just saw a giant ape arm and a woman ala King Kong.
Watch Your Step!
Let’s be honest, this looks like a hostel entryway, which means that there will be people walking the halls that may have had some adult beverages. That being the case, this optical illusion flooring is just mean!
Funny, but mean. After all, we haven’t had a thing to drink, and we still felt like the floor was slanted! Imagine if you had had a few! Accidents waiting to happen, that’s all we are saying!
Nobody Here But Us Foxes
The coloring of these two foxes plays perfectly with the wood in the fence. That is why, if it wasn’t for the cute little noses and the grins from their smiles, you may be fooled into missing the hole in the fence.
Even after you see the two foxes, this is still an adorable image. After all, it does look like the two were trying to get through the hole, and just kind of gave up mid-task to take a nap.
How You Have Grown!
This little guy looks like he has been aging very quickly the minute you see this image. But the little guy is not prematurely aging; it is just another optical illusion. If you look real closely, you will see that this is an image of a dad carrying his little guy through the waters to the shore.
It doesn’t help that the bucket hat seems a little too big for the kid, but hey, at least it makes for a fun photo to share with the family – and all of us.
Is there such a thing as Siamese terriers? If you saw this photo, you might think so, but we aren’t sure that it is a real thing. Especially when you look at the photo more closely. It is clear that there are two dogs here.
They just happen to have the same coloring. Maybe they are siblings, but one thing is for sure – they are not super long pups that share the same body.
Though we are sure this is one of those photos that has been carefully crafted, even still, it is so well done that it caught our attention. As you look at this piece of art, you may think that the woman has a very beautiful skirt on.
But that is actually just an exceptionally beautiful tropical flower just in the right spot. Optical illusions are pretty amazing when done right!
