With all the serious things going on in the world, it’s healthy to allow ourselves to laugh at the silliness around us. Having a sense of humor about the little things helps us get through the bigger problems we face. In this spirit, here are some funny airport moments to lighten the mood.
Will You Marry Me?
Public marriage proposals have been popular for ages, but they never get old. When someone asks their beloved to spend the rest of their lives together, it’s always an exciting occurrence for bystanders. As you can see in this photo, the people witnessing the proposal are thrilled for the happy couple. Proposing in an airport is sure to be a tear-jerker!
It’s Me And Junior!
This new mom tried to make fun of herself after she gained some weight with the pregnancy. Maybe she was afraid that her husband wouldn’t be able to recognize her and their baby – he’d been away in the military for a long time and this would be his first time meeting his newborn son. She wanted to welcome her husband home with a good dose of humor. So sweet!
If you’re stuck at the airport and want to take a nap, you’ll need to get creative. This lady realized that she could turn the waiting area seats into a bed by simply sliding underneath the armrests. We’re not sure how comfortable it really is, but she seems to be fast asleep! Who needs a hotel room when you can save some money by stretching out in the middle of the airport?
Yoga On the Go
There are no rules against doing yoga in a public space – so what better way to loosen up your body when your flight is delayed or you’ve just spent many hours on a long flight? Just pull out your yoga mat right there in the lounge area. Who knows, you might even start a trend – as other people will surely be tempted to follow your lead and get some exercise while they wait.
A Toilet For Pets
There is nothing wrong with your eyes – you are indeed seeing a pet toilet at the airport. This is one of the first airports to build a place for your pet to relieve itself before or after a long flight. With this type of gesture, the San Diego airport shows that they not only care for their human passengers, but also their animal companions.
Look At Me, Daddy!
What a great idea to introduce a daddy to his new baby girl when he sees her for the first time! He surely fell in love right there… especially when he saw this poster! And we would also guess that he fell in love all over again with the mommy of his baby. Modifying well-known lyrics from a pop song is quite an original way to introduce a dad to his new baby, so this mom gets some major points for creativity.
Where To Put The Baby?
If you’re standing in the security line and need to put your child down for just a minute, what do you do? This mom chose the nearest bucket on the conveyor belt. She was asked to remove her shoes, so she needed both hands free – and the bucket seemed to her like the safest place to put her infant. If the belt started moving, the baby could’ve been pushed into the X-ray machine! But luckily, that didn’t happen here, and the infant stayed safe and sound in his little container.
This girl looks like she’s on her way to dreamland – even if it’s on a conveyor belt. This seems like a fun way to kill time while waiting to get on the plane. Hopefully, there will be something to keep her busy in flight since she might get hyper after napping for too long on the luggage belt. Best wake her up before she ends up somewhere other than her family intended.
What Happened To the People?
This photo is not what it seems. Maybe you think all the passengers were transformed into falcons by an evil witch. In fact, this was a prince from Saudi Arabia who used his status to get all 80 of his falcons on a commercial flight. This is a luxury only a highly-privileged person could enjoy. But all envy aside, at least the falcons were safe and sound during their flight.
Security Search Or a Dance?
This woman looks so happy to be searched by airport security, it’s as if she is performing a dance. Maybe she’s a frequent traveler and has realized that it’s best to go through security with a smile. She sets a good example for all of us to follow, when we get frustrated by the long waits at the airport. That’s how it’s done, ladies and gentlemen – with a skip in your step.
Not a Wasted Pose
Oftentimes when we strike a pose, no one takes notice. Luckily for this lady, someone turned her airport pose into an unforgettable moment. Maybe she was tired of standing up straight all day long and needed to do some stretching. And what better way to do it than to strike an alluring pose, just in case someone has a camera at hand.
While rushing through the airport, you might get lucky and spot a familiar face on the way. Even if you’re in a hurry, taking a second or two to snap a quick photo of your favorite singer is not a waste. Your idol will likely not even notice, because she’s also in a hurry to catch their flight.
If you want to travel the globe these days, you need to be okay with having every part of your body exposed to the security X-rays. There is just no secret place on your body anymore – those security agents are able to see even more than your doctor can. If you are a citizen of the world, then this is your way of life – and you need to take it in stride, no matter the exposure. So put your hands in the air and show that you have nothing to hide.
She Must Have Meant Duty
This young soldier was away from his girlfriend for a long time, and she clearly missed him – welcoming him home with a clever sign left that left nothing to the imagination. The couple was ecstatic to be reunited, and nothing else seems to matter! Hopefully these two lovebirds will be able to make up for lost time.
No Need To Run!
Is this the real Forrest Gump on the train? No, it was just a look-alike on his way to see his own Jenny. This guy looked and dressed just like Forrest from the movie Forrest Gump. So it was no surprise that someone had to take a picture to show the crazy occurrence to everyone at home.
Show the World His Real Face
If his friends meant to embarrass the poor guy, they must have succeeded with this blown-up photo. Hopefully, Mokie saw this picture from a distance and did not show his face in the reception area. Nobody wants to see a giant picture of themselves in public, especially when they’re making such a silly face. But we’re sure his friends had the best of intentions and just wanted to get a good laugh out of Mokie.
How To Win Their Trust
Seeing a crashed airplane below you as you take off would surely cause some anxiety. This is the picture you are met with when you depart from the international airport in Moscow. It is indeed a crazy way to win passengers’ trust – hopefully they can get the wreckage cleaned up soon so that everyone can have happier thoughts upon take-off.
Vanity Taken Too Far
This is what happens when you become too obsessed with your own face. Simon’s girlfriend clearly had enough of his vanity, and decided to let him know by shaming him in public. It may have been just a good joke intended to get a laugh out of him – we may never know. But Britney’s sign certainly caught the attention of all arriving passengers.
The New Comfy Chair
When you can’t sit up straight anymore, you need to find a good resting place for your head. And what better thing to use than your trusted suitcase companion? It holds all of your clothes, and can certainly hold your head as well. But where to put the rest of your body? Right there in the chair where it has always been. It only requires a bit of rearrangement.
Where Past Meets Future
This plane landed in middle earth, and they had to ask a few dwarfs to get it out of the ditch. Hopefully, the dwarfs got paid for their labor because you do not want to mess with a dwarf and his gold. All kidding aside, this was a scene being shot for the movie Man vs. Beast. They wanted to see if 44 little people would be stronger than an elephant – it turned out they were not.
Not Even During Christmas Holidays?
How will you break it to your grandchild that you could not bring them a snow globe because it was not allowed on the airplane? Maybe you can blame the Grinch, but what about that durian fruit you promised them? Some gifts simply can’t be brought on a plane, and for good reason – durian has such a strong smell, it would make the flight unbearable for all passengers!
Prepared to Fly
This man is unbelievably prepared for his long flight. He’s sporting a face mask to protect his airways, an eye mask to block out the light so he can get some sleep, a neck pillow, and noise-canceling headphones. He’s clearly a frequent traveler and knows what kind of gear he needs to be comfortable on a flight.
Not For the Weak
Even if it was legal to take such a photo for Instagram, it seems like going a bit too far just to get more followers. But that did not stop this pilot from getting the picture no one else can get, from the safety of Photoshop. Unfortunately, he was found out and lost most of his Instagram followers. So what’s next, a photo of him walking on the moon? That would be a brave feat.
This sign came from the heart of a child, and if you cannot read it, try imagining yourself as a child again. Just rearrange the letters in the right order, and you will see the intended message. This sweet little girl wanted to welcome her grandparents home when the family came to pick them up at the airport – and her handwritten sign surely made their hearts melt.
Do Not Give Them Your Passport
If your children are getting restless, the last thing you should do is let them play with your passport. They might decorate it with their personal artwork, believing that they’re making your passport more beautiful. Little do they know that their self-expression will prevent your family from going on your highly-anticipated trip, as a marked-up passport is instantly invalidated! So take this example as a lesson to keep your passport far away from the hands of your children.
Lost And Found
This eye-catching sculpture is like a real-life game of Tetris. It seems like all the lost suitcases from around the world have ended up at this airport. It’s a good reminder to make sure you’ve picked up all your belongings from the conveyor belt, because you don’t want them to end up in a lost-and-found tower!
That is exactly what this sign suggests at an airport in New Zealand, where the runway is very close to the parking lot. When people arrive at this small airport, they’re advised to park their car quickly and then get inside to avoid the danger of jets that are taking off or landing. Maybe it’s better to get a taxi to drop you off right at the terminal doors, rather than taking the risk!
This border collie has a very important job – and that is to chase away all stray animals that come too close to the airport runway. Instead of setting traps to keep the animals away, Piper the collie will do it for a bone or two. He runs around the perimeter of this Michigan airport, and seems to love his work. Piper is a highly valuable employee of the airport, keeping the runways safe for take-off and landing.
The Big Trek
This is what it will look like when travel restrictions are eased and everyone decides to fly around the world again. This is just a joke, of course – it was photoshopped by a skilled photographer and made up of 400 different photos. It’s quite an impressive view of all the flights leaving this airport. If you think this looks scary, just imagine what it would sound like!
The Penguins Have Arrived
They came through the gate like a delegation from the Penguin World, and received a warm welcome. This endangered species of penguin was rescued from poachers by a team of conservationists, and taken back to their natural habitat. A commercial flight was the safest way to transport them back to their island, just off the coast of South Africa. Can you imagine sitting next to a penguin on a flight?
Only Just Got Away
Someone left the cargo door open, and this kidnapped polar bear narrowly escaped with his life! Luckily, that was not the real scenario here – but polar bears are a common sight on airport runways in Alaska. Maybe this bear remembered that someone treated it with a snack the last time it was here. And everybody is fond of good memories – even polar bears.
It Could Have Been Worse
Imagine Jasmine’s surprise when she found this photo of strangers on her Facebook page. How very kind of these airport workers from Newcastle airport to tell her where she lost her phone, along with a friendly warning not to leave her Facebook account logged in when she is not using it. Normally, a lost phone is a goner – but these airport workers show us the better side of humankind.
Put Your Hands Together For Them
These guys are probably used to receiving enthusiastic applause for their public stunts. They decided to give bored passengers at this airport something to remember. It’s so delightful to see young people putting on a circus show rather than sitting with their faces buried in their smartphones, and we’re sure their fellow travelers were grateful for the diversion.
These lucky passengers were surprised by Spanish airline SpanAir when their plane landed on Christmas Eve. Everyone received a thank-you gift for using SpanAir as their way to get home for Christmas. We’re dying to know what’s inside those boxes – maybe a nice travel pillow and a gift certificate for a future flight?
Follow Me On Instagram
This pilot is well-known for her yoga poses around the plane and has quite a following on Instagram. You don’t find many pilots who are also yoga instructors. But Maria Peterson, who hails from Sweden, is not an ordinary person. She delights her followers by bringing together her two loves – flying and yoga.
Duck! But After You Take a Selfie
That’s right, this was not photoshopped! If you see this selfie on social media, know that it’s the real deal – but only on this island in the Caribbean. With the runway just off the beach, people get so used to airplanes flying low that they don’t even duck anymore. That is why you see these people on the beach busy taking selfies without an ounce of fear.
All Behind Grandma For a Photo
This looks like everyone is gathering behind Grandma to pose for a family photo for the holiday album. Unfortunately, this was a real situation where everyone was stuck behind this old lady on a moving walkway at the airport. She clearly decided to stay put and let no one pass. Luckily no one seemed bothered by it, and they were all smiles in the photo.
Don’t Worry, I’ll Keep You Warm
If you cannot find a proper place to rest your head, you will have to make do with what is available. Even if it is someone’s lap to curl onto like a cat, it’ll have to do. But sometimes the person whose lap you’re lounging on also needs a rest. Hopefully, this guy did not drool too much while keeping his friend warm.
Sorry, We Have to Check You
Yes – even nuns are subject to a full-body pat down at the airport. Hopefully this was as comical to the nun as it was to the bystanders. At international airports, everyone is treated as a suspect – even the least likely candidates. Security personnel are just trying to do their job and keep everyone on the plane safe.
Prepare To Wait For a While
This is the sign you see when you queue in the line to use the public toilets at a Chinese airport. The sign is very accurate, considering the long lines you encounter when you want to use the bathroom. That’s not very encouraging when you get off the plane after a long flight and are dying to relieve yourself! As the sign suggests, make sure you cross your legs while waiting to avoid any accidents.
An Escape Artist?
Seriously – if you want to get on an airplane, just buy yourself a ticket. You will not be able to fly as checked luggage. In these days of heavy security at airports, there’s no chance you’ll get away with it. But we don’t blame this guy for trying. Maybe he ran out of cash but still wanted to join his girlfriend for a beach vacation. We hope his punishment wasn’t too severe.
Did Not Mean To Fall Asleep
Maybe this guy lying in the middle of the floor was just going to rest a bit while he waited for his turn at the counter, but he couldn’t help falling asleep. And the people around him did not have the heart to wake him up from his slumber. Sometimes people are completely exhausted after a long flight, especially when there’s a layover. This guy must have a knack for falling asleep just about anywhere, since all the airport noise wasn’t even enough to wake him.
Make Your Own Luggage Cart
Maybe this person was in such a hurry to catch his flight that he didn’t have time to think about how to get his luggage there. Those poor little suitcase wheels probably gave in halfway to the airport, so he had to hail a taxi anyway. At least he had a fun story to tell everyone once he finally got to his destination. We will never know, and we can only hope for the best.
This picture looks like a scene from the simulator game Transport Tycoon. This is an international airport in Gibraltar, and cars have to wait for the green light before they can proceed across the runway. But what happens if there is a city-wide power outage and nobody can regulate the traffic? This is certainly not ideal and seems very unsafe; we surely hope they improve the situation soon.
Piggyback On the Luggage
Who can blame this little girl for finding a place to rest those tired feet? If nothing else is available, certainly Dad’s luggage will do. Her slumping posture reflects the general mood of passengers at airports where you have to wait a long time for everything, even the bathroom. If the body wants to rest, that is exactly what it should do – even while on the go.
This Is Mine
If this is the only way to keep from losing your luggage again and again, then let it be so. This guy probably lost his luggage one too many times, and decided to print a photo of himself on his suitcase to identify it. We’re wondering… how many times do you have to lose your luggage to come to this extreme solution? Probably many times, and hopefully it was not always his fault.
Time Out For Mom
This was most likely during the school holiday times, and Mom just could not cope with the little rascals alone any longer. Luckily for these boys, moms are not really quitters – and she brought them to the airport to welcome their dad home. It’s great if people can still have a sense of humor about the serious things in life – that’s how we cope.
From Far, Far Away
These guys were on their way to Comic-Con and needed their shoes shined. We hope that they paid in the local currency, and not that of another galaxy. It is not often that people make use of shoe-shining services in this age when people are always in a hurry and tend to dress more casually. So these guys from a faraway galaxy were quite a welcome sight to the people who provide these services. We hope they have a custom of tipping well.
Missing Mom and Dad
This guy was in such a hurry that he forgot to change out of his pajamas before rushing off to the airport to pick up his parents. He was just thrilled to have Mom and Dad back to restock the empty pantry and fridge! We’re sure he was also delighted to see them because he missed their company at home.
Only Short Kisses Goodbye
This was the solution of the airport personnel in Denmark to prevent people from blocking the curbside drop-off. People like to take time to say goodbye to their loved ones before a trip – let’s face it, that’s quite a human thing. But at this airport, you have only three minutes to say your goodbyes and clear the way. This may sound a bit harsh, but if there is no other way to keep the driveway clear – we must cut those kisses short.
On a Short Leash
This mother had to find a way to keep her boisterous children close to her side while making her way through the airport. But it seems their crazy antics got her all tied up in knots! Even with leashes attached, they were still quite a handful at the airport. Maybe next time she should try an even shorter leash?
Points For Originality
What is the best way to win a woman’s heart? This guy certainly knew how to do it. Dressing up as a limo driver to pick up his girlfriend from the airport certainly scored him a lot of points. And the sign was what put him over the top – there’s no better way to score points than finding the right words to make her day. Way to go, man – this was quite romantic.
Staying Warm And Safe
This was quite an innovative solution for passengers who were stranded in an airport in Asia due to bad weather conditions. Unfortunately, their flight was postponed for days, and they had to find shelter while waiting. Even if they looked like homeless people, that didn’t stop them from using the empty boxes to create a little sleeping area. And no one blames them for simply trying to stay warm and feel safe.
On Game Break!
This security guard was caught playing a solitaire game on the computer instead of checking passports. This is one job where you need to stay fully focused and don’t have time to mess around. Hopefully, this security guard was set straight by his managers and will refrain from playing games in the future while he’s supposed to be working to keep passengers safe.
Better To Be Safe
Plugging your phone into a USB charger in a public place is not that safe anymore, and this passenger just bypassed it. Did this person simply want to avoid paying to charge his phone, or was he trying to keep his data safe from USB hackers? Better bring your own charger than to waste money and expose yourself to a data breach on your phone.
Where Is Luke?
It’s not safe to be seen in public with Darth Vader, but Stormtroopers are part of his entourage. Better not let the Rebel Alliance know he is around, they will definitely strike back. Luckily, this was just a group of Star Wars fans dressed up at the Denver airport right before the release of Star Wars, the Last Jedi.
Resentment Or Joke?
This guy came to pick up his brother-in-law from the airport. Could his words be a reflection of his true anger, or was he just making a joke to lighten the mood for the expecting parents? Let’s hope it was the latter, and that the smug look on his face did not mean he wanted to get revenge. It’s always great when family members can joke around with each other.
An Embarrassing Moment
This family went out of their way to embarrass Mom, and they succeeded! When she saw the sign, she simply turned around and pretended not to know them at all. Sometimes family members can be so inconsiderate. At least they got to see the surprise on their mother’s face. Hopefully, this was taken in good spirits, and Dad did not end up having to spend the night in the dog house!
Please Give Them a Laptop
These photos were taken at the same airport just a few weeks apart. Was this a setup, or are they trying to get a donation for a laptop? But on a serious note, how on earth are they lugging those heavy typewriters along with them while traveling? Maybe these people just do not like the new technology and try to live off the grid. At least they will not be bothered by a power outage – maybe they carry candles around with them as well.
Something To Hide
When someone is walking around indoors wearing shades, they are often hiding something. Most of the time, they’re trying to hide their identity – and that is precisely the case in this photo. Candice Swanepoel, an actress from South Africa, was trying to remain unrecognized in her sunglasses. Hopefully she made it through the airport without being bothered by any fans.
Hitch a Ride
This little girl’s legs were too short to keep up with her dad as he rushed through the airport, so she decided to hitch a ride on his suitcase instead. Did he notice that his bag suddenly got heavier? We’re sure that other tired passengers looked on with envy, wishing they could also ride on someone’s suitcase instead of walking.
Let Me Just Lay Down a Minute
This is what happens when you’re on a layover and your flight gets delayed for hours. Isn’t this what we all want to do when we’re stuck at the airport? Sometimes all we need is to lay down for a few minutes to recharge. Hopefully no one stepped on this woman while she took her power nap.
40+ Seemingly Innocent Jokes That End Up Taking a Dark Turn
The internet is full of online court jesters who love to make others laugh with their witty humor. However, there’s no denying that sometimes, these people can take a joke a little too far. What’s interesting about the following jokes is that they were shared on social media, and just when you think it’s a completely innocent gag, things spiral out of control. Here are some funny online jokes that suddenly took a dark turn.
Til’ Death Do Us Part
There are basically only two ways that any relationship can go. Either, you are destined to be with that one person for the rest of your life. Or, you have an expiry date from day one and you are inevitably going to part ways at some point.
Not to mention the fact that one of you is most likely going to kick the bucket before the other. As far as this joke goes, this guy met his demise on the day he proposed to his girlfriend.
Things Are Getting Coyote Ugly
Not everyone loves cats. Those of us who do, though, can’t help but stare in awe at those beautiful, pulsating eyes. That’s why it breaks our hearts when we hear terrible stories like this one.
We kind of see the funny side of someone who has no idea that they are causing serious damage to the feline community in their neighborhood. Ultimately, it’s the way that the guy is telling the story on Twitter that will earn a couple of chuckles.
Delivery or Takeaway?
Delivery workers are bound to have a couple of places they feel like they have to visit more often than others. But this might also apply to medics when you think about it.
It makes you wonder — why would this ambulance keep having to go to the same house? Does an old lady keep falling over every other day? Or is something much more sinister going on? Like multiple homicides in the same place. We’ll let you decide what the case might be.
Lights, Camera, Live-Action
People are growing more and more against the idea of zoos as years go on. In theory, going to see a wide variety of animals is a pleasant experience. But, when you consider the poor conditions that they might live under in those zoos, you’d think that they’d be better off living in the wild.
This joke hits home on two fronts. One, Disney movies with sad animals in them is a bit of a cliché at this stage, and two, well — what we previously discussed.
Best Girlfriend Ever!
None of us are cool with the idea of our significant other’s cheating on us until it is too late. But, some victims of adultery are more laidback than others. The following individual took things to a whole new level when he discovered a random guy in his cheating girlfriend’s closet.
Thankfully, he was able to take the positives out of the situation, highlighting some things that would usually be convenient for him. However, something else is happening beneath the surface…
The Calm After the Storm
When a bad storm hits a community and so much destruction is caused, we’d like to think that the victims pull together and help each other out during such tough times. However, there are some people out there who purely look out for themselves.
Take this guy, for example, who was more than happy to just pack up and abandon his community. He didn’t mind letting them pick up the pieces while he kicked back in Hawaii of all places.
Self Drive and Kicking
It seems like the machines are slowly taking over the world, one upgrade at a time. This can even be seen in the automobile industry. Self-driving vehicles are eventually going to be a mainstream thing, whether we like it or not.
Do you know what’s terrifying, though? There are bound to be people who pass away mid-drive, yet the car will be completely unaware of this and continue to drive the corpse. This joke highlights this morbid future phenomenon.
There are many occasions where one’s name might be the subject of a good old joke. However, there’s a time and place — and plenty of occasions where it’s just inappropriate. Obviously, a crucial time not to use someone’s name in vain is on the way to their funeral.
With that said, this person simply couldn’t resist exploiting the correlation between his Uncle Joe’s cremated remains and his mom’s desire to drink some coffee. You know, since it’s basically a box of Joe.
Abstract Daddy Issues
You might not realize that a social media post is someone simply making light of a deep, dark issue they have dealt with for so long. That’s what this person did. He really did come up with something completely out of the ordinary, and definitely on the morbid side of things.
The thing is, there’s always going to be some random person online who can relate to whatever you write, no matter how abstract or depressing it is.
The School of Hard Knocks
Valentine’s Day can be brutal for people of all ages. But, there’s something about celebrating the romantic holiday at school that can be particularly unforgiving. Someone is always bound to fall by the wayside in class while others manage to get paired up with others.
This teacher had a pretty pleasant way of consoling her students who didn’t receive anything for Valentine’s. However, there was one kid who she didn’t even need to ask. The audacity!
Just to add a bit of context to the mix, for those who don’t know, R20 is alluding to the currency of South Africa. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s cut to the chase.
This guy really did a number on his own daughter, teaching her a valuable lesson, albeit a pretty dark one. Apparently, in their country, theft is a big deal and the earlier she learns this, the better. What a sad world we live in.
Every once in a while, someone will start listing off a bunch of stuff and casually drop a huge bombshell in the middle of everything, hoping that you might not notice it.
More often than not, though, our attention is immediately captured and we can’t help but ask, “Can you repeat that?” This guy thought no one would notice the little beheading reference he mentioned in the middle of his little Twitter list. What a time to be alive (or not).
Putting the “End” in Man’s Best Friend
Any dog owner will agree that it’s absolutely heartbreaking to lose their “best friend.” Inevitably, we all have to say goodbye to our canine friends at some point. But this guy on Twitter went super-cynical, essentially saying that no matter what, we are eventually going to lose our dog and it will usually be in a decade or so.
We know he’s technically right, but there’s no need to remind us! Cherish every day you have with your pooch.
Stick to Astrophysics, Neil
There are plenty of celebrities and great thinkers out there who use social media to share their wisdom with the world. While Neil deGrasse Tyson is full of that, he often just resorts to trolling his millions of followers with funny, albeit dark jokes.
Truth be told, the following statement is pretty obvious, but Neil knows that many people would try out this experiment simply to prove him wrong. Word of advice, readers — please don’t try this at home.
A Heartbreaking Joke
Here’s another example of a joke that went pretty morbid very quickly. As we get older, there’s more of an emphasis on ensuring that our heart rate is at an optimal BPM. It seems like this person didn’t fully grasp though what it means to be running at 65 beats per minute.
“Only 65 more to go” could be read one of two ways. Either they are excited to run it down to zero, or they’re extremely sad about it.
I Have a Bone to Pick With You
Sometimes, the things we write on Twitter can be darkly profound and other times, they are simply dark. This tiny little tweet tells a pretty impressive story in just a handful of words.
The day is not Halloween, and this guy is apparently talking to someone about the phenomenon of skeletons and their relationship with the spooky festival. He’s clearly doing something wrong and the person he’s speaking to happens to be a cop.
This tweet perfectly typifies how crazy people can be when receiving certain information. On the one hand, many people are quick to react in an extreme way when they are fed some sort of prediction that doesn’t carry any real scientific evidence.
However, when the science actually does start to kick in and the evidence is there to prove it, people remain strangely calm. Come on, people — global warming is here and we need to do something about it!
Who’s Helping Who?
At face value, we like to think that we’d happily help out those in need, especially those people who don’t have a home and have to live on the streets. Unfortunately, though, a lot of homeless people resort to illicit substances in order to suppress the pain of their circumstances.
This guy proposed the dilemma of giving money to a homeless person, not knowing where it would go. It seems, though, that the money is better off with the homeless guy!
What a Load of Clap
There’s a general stereotype that transporting around London can be a pretty cold experience. For a start, people refuse to speak to one another on the tube and won’t even look at each other in the eye.
So, when this little boy decided to clap his hands and sing a happy song, no one joined in with him. We’re not saying that this is always the case in London, but this definitely does further the stereotype!
Making Dreams Come True
Not everyone in this world is supposed to be a parent. It’s a brutal truth of life. That doesn’t mean, though, that some people can’t make others parents who so desperately want to be.
This guy told the dark story (probably just a joke) of how he left his nephew behind in an Uber taxi because the driver was unable to have kids. It’s a win-win for everyone. The guy no longer has his annoying nephew to worry about and the Uber driver is now a dad!
This Joke’s Off the Hook
It’s so easy to offend people these days. Seems like whatever you say to someone, there’s a chance that it might rub them the wrong way. Even Captain Cook, you know, Peter Pan’s enemy, has feelings.
This little piece of fictional dialogue on Twitter perfectly demonstrates that even the most nefarious villains in the world have a soul. Everyone deserves to feel appreciated, even Captain Hook.
The School of Hard Knocks
Some people will do whatever it takes to gain the respect of those around them. And yet, there’s nothing quite like having the love you give to your kids reciprocated straight back to you.
Whether it’s something nice they said about you to someone else or a kind gesture, all parents want to feel appreciated by their kids. This dad felt the love from his kid, but he did a pretty negligible thing in the process.
Weirdest Family Reunion Ever
Listen, teenagers will be teenagers, and they’re going to become “adventurous,” for lack of a better term. This means that every once in a while, teens might get caught red-handed by their parents doing all sorts of indecent things.
This kid stumbled across an inappropriate scene while watching a movie. We doubt that the father who caught them had actually been missing for 12 years — probably more of an exaggeration than anything else.
Better Late Than Never…Very Late
The idea that it’s never too late to chase your dreams is, in theory, very inspirational. It’s comforting to think that there’s always time to do what you want to do, even later on in life.
But this person really threw people for a loop by highlighting some truly nefarious villains who waited for hundreds — sometimes thousands — of years, so that they could simply perform acts of evil. We get the point, Angry Robot, but yikes!
Bad Cop, Bad Cop
We currently live in a climate where the police have been under immense scrutiny, and rightfully so. A lot of injustice has happened over the last few years, affecting people from all walks of life. We expect the police to maintain order, not to create further chaos.
This tweet shows how someone became disillusioned with the police force, believing they were one thing, but through years of experience and exposure, looked at them as something else entirely.
I Get a Kick Out of You
It’s common knowledge that babies kick from inside when the mother is pregnant. But, it seems like the kicking that this guy is talking about is very different. It’s a ridiculous comparison to make in order to excuse his actions.
We assume he didn’t actually kick anyone and is pretending to be a guy who kicked a woman. Either way, people who actually do this must feel the force of the law. Most definitely.
Self Care to the Max
We live in an era where the term “self-care” seems to be a real buzzword that people cling to. Whether it’s through yoga, going to a spa, or just taking some time off, it’s important to focus on yourself every once in a while and shut off all of your responsibilities.
This person took things to a whole new level, though, when each act became more outrageous. Relocating to another country and changing your name isn’t exactly a form of self-care.
Talk About Quick Fixes
There seem to be millions of tips and methods to get ourselves in the best physical shape, or to a least, undergo some kind of drastic physical transformation. But, what exactly works, and what’s simply a company’s desperate attempt to cheat their customers?
It seems like the following offer kind of does both. Unless you actually want people to meet you and see you in the flesh, this Photoshop tool seems to have a 100% success rate.
You Are What You Drink
On any level, cannibalism is a pretty nasty idea. There have been entire movies and books dedicated to this strange habit. And yet, it can even be found in animated kids shows, like this one.
It seems like the following character is some sort of humanoid orange. And as you can see, they had no idea that they were basically drinking a cup of their own “blood.” This is certainly taking the term “blood orange” to a whole new level.
That’s Good News, Right?
At the best of times, no one wants to find out that they have been diagnosed with some sort of serious disease. But, you know what’s even worse? That’s right, folks — discovering that you are the carrier of an extremely rare disease.
This, in theory, suggests that it’s going to be a lot more difficult to be cured or even treated, for that matter. And then the person in this meme got a disease that was so rare, they got to name it!
Too Much Information, Mo
Venn diagrams teach us so much, from time to time. It’s amazing to see how many things overlap that on paper, don’t seem to have anything in common with each other. Of course, “collecting skins” in these two separate contexts mean two completely different things.
What makes the post so much darker though is the sick, twisted comment that this young man provided us with. Wait a minute — so if you’re referring to yourself as “us,” then that means… Oh no!
I Made You!
There’s no denying that fully grown adults can be just as immature as their own kids, from time to time. But, to start throwing silly insults at them when they’re annoying you is just taking things a bit too far.
We don’t think this dad’s diss toward his son will have the exact impact that he’s hoping for. One, it’s kind of inappropriate to share any aspect of your “bedroom” life with your children. Secondly, the son will probably just find it gross!
Time to Save Face
Truth be told, a lot of the tips on this list sound pretty sensible when it comes to reinventing yourself. After all, drinking a lot of water each day can only provide you with benefits. So can sleeping for more than eight hours per day.
Not to mention the fact that going out once a day to soak in some sun is a pretty good thing too. But, the penultimate entry on this list is definitely something we wouldn’t recommend.
What to Expect When You’re Not Expecting
Most people who read the following tweet were bound to be excited for this guy when he mentioned that his girlfriend was “eating for two,” at first. When one uses this expression, it usually means that the woman involved is pregnant, which is, more often than not, something to be excited about.
But, it soon became clear that this seemingly harmless phrase meant something else entirely. Always make sure to read until the very end of a tweet.
That’s Not Gonna Fly
Planes are one of those places where you can literally bump into any kind of person from any walk of life. This means that people of all ages can board virtually any flight. This includes babies, elderly people, and everyone in between.
There are some people who only fly for the first time later on in life, like the man in this story. The person who told the joke makes you think that he’s going to show some act of kindness to the senior citizen. But no.
Grade ‘A’ Prank
You would think that $500 for each A you get at school would be an absolute steal. Simply get your head in the game every night, hit the books, and you’ll be the richest kid in your class.
However, this parent made this very deal with his own kids because he has absolutely no faith in his children’s ability at school. That’s pretty bad if you ask us. Also, why would you be happy to part ways with 500 bucks on the off chance that your kid does get an A?
A Paranormal Medic
Did you ever play the board game Operation when you were a kid? Well, it seems like this young lady still enjoyed playing it when she was older. However, she ended up using a real body for the game instead, by the sounds of it!
Look, it’s ok to have dreams. But usually, it’s best to aspire to be a doctor and then learn how to perform life-saving surgeries on those in need — not the other way around!
Survival of the Meanest
Many of us can relate to the following story — at least, the first part of it. You’re shopping at your local grocery store, and something you desperately needed, like milk or bread, is nearly out of stock.
You and a senior citizen are staring over the last two loaves of bread in the store. What do you do? Well, we would suggest either each person taking a loaf or, the more admirable thing to do would be giving the elderly customer both loaves. But no.
Many people underestimate how important video games are to certain individuals. Heaven forbid you are in a relationship with someone who loves to play their fair share of PlayStation or Xbox.
This guy had a pretty terrifying answer to the following question. Look, we know it sucks when someone disrupts your progress on a video game, but this reaction seems a bit too over-the-top for its own good. At some point, you just need to realize what’s important in life.
Who’s a Good Boy?
Service dogs are surely some of the most wonderful creatures in the world. Think about it, they are trained specifically to help blind people get around, so they are very much welcomed in the world.
Not to mention the fact that they are absolutely beautiful. That’s where the following villain comes into play. To think that they would exploit this cute dog’s abilities just so that he could steal a wallet from a blind person. The horror.
It’s absolutely adorable when kids come up with these funny and sweet questions about the world around them. Often the result is humorous, especially when you are struggling to come up with a proper answer without giggling.
The problem begins when you remember you don’t actually have children or why they ask about Earth’s defense system while squinting their obsidian black eyes. Pretty creepy in our humble opinion.
Imagine just walking down the aisle in the supermarket one day, looking for your favorite fresh produce. You are on the lookout for carrots. But not just any carrots. You, for some reason, are interested in genetically modified carrots.
Or perhaps, you are actually trying to avoid buying genetically modified carrots. So the most logical thing to do is to ask the vendor about those carrots you are holding in your hand. Certainly, you didn’t expect that the answer would come from the carrots themselves.
Good to Go
Don’t drink and drive, they always say, and for a good reason. You don’t want to end up in an accident or to be pulled over by the police. But in case you do, just pull the trumpet you keep under the seat and show them how well you can play.
Apparently, if you can show the cop that you know how to play the trumpet they will let you go! We’re kidding, this would probably happen only in a cartoon or something.
Are You an Only Child?
Growing up with siblings can be hard. So the obvious solution is just to tell your parents that you don’t want any. They would probably tell them to move to the tool shed in the backyard in case you are their favorite child.
It’s also possible that they will just let someone adopt them, that might work as well, no? Your siblings obviously might take it to heart, but they will get used to sharing the dog house with the family dog.
Leave the Crust
What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear someone saying that they don’t eat the crust? You’d probably think about bread. While we absolutely don’t get these people, it’s a whole different story when it comes to watermelons.
Why would you not want to eat the watermelon’s rind (or crust)? This is an absolute waste of food. So what if it’s green and hard and has a different texture.
You Are What You Eat
When we were kids our mothers used to tell us not to lie. As we grew older, we realized that they were wrong. Sometimes you have no choice, but to skirt the truth. It seems that in this case, the opposite is actually true.
Technically speaking, they are right. If you are, proverbially speaking, what you eat, then they should plead not guilty. Actually, since we didn’t go to law school we are not allowed to give any legal advice.
Ask the Dog
Marital disputes are not fun. Sometimes these disputes can even result in an ugly divorce. The hard part about divorce is deciding who gets to keep the dog. Yes, the jeans-wearing dog.
But, judging by the wife’s reaction we bet she would happily give it up, we mean the husband. Honestly, we see nothing wrong with buying dad’s favorite little pup jeans. He gets cold during winter! And that’s how you end up being divorced, kids.
This sounded like a scene straight out of Fast & Furious. We get it, it’s not always easy to be around your significant other. They can be really annoying sometimes. In fact, they can be so annoying that you just want to kick them out of a fast-driving car.
Maybe a few bumps on the head (when they hit the tarmac) would straighten them up. However, we hope this wasn’t part of a darker plot to kidnap them. We would really hate to explain to the cops how it got to this.
Imagine that you are going to Paris on a holiday with your lover. You plan to spend a few days in the city, visiting all the important tourist attractions.
When you get to the famous Eiffel tower, you intend to get down on one knee and propose. At least, that’s what they think. Otherwise, why would you just bend like that? If for some reason your knee is made of magnets that actually explains it – so no marriage proposal for you, Sara.
We know what they told you. Life is short and you should take chances and all that. Yeah, yeah, we hate to break it down to you, but most of us just go about our lives imagining all the great things we could accomplish without actually doing them.
Why is that? We don’t know, but we’ve learned to accept life as it is. That’s why we are totally down with you never directly approaching your crush. She probably doesn’t even know your name anyway.
No Refund, No Return
The thing about kids is that they are not like a product you buy in a store. Once you’ve got them, it’s too late to go back. They are yours — forever. It doesn’t even end when they turn 18.
You guys are just bound for life, whether you like it or not. But, on rare occasions, you can just regret your decision and say you don’t want them. We get it. Kids can be too much sometimes. So just go and tell them that and see what happens next.
Some people just can’t let go. If you went out with somebody and they decided to break up with you, that can be hard. But, with time, all wounds heal – even the romantic ones. Some, however, just wouldn’t accept that and wouldn’t move on.
This often leads to situations such as this one. All he was trying to do is to be nice to her. So he was hiding behind the bushes like the creepy stalker he is – big deal. At least he was polite!
What Did You Say?
Men will always be boys at heart, even when they are old enough to have kids and act like adults (they never do). It seems that in this case someone just couldn’t deal with the fact that their husband is a big baby.
We wonder what he did to deserve that reprimanding remark (we’ve heard it a couple of times from our moms). Our guess is that it may have had something to do with his attempts at beating the world record for most gummy bears stuffed into one’s mouth.
There is nothing more satisfying than making your ex feel bad after a breakup. What’s a better way of doing it than by making them believe that you are still, supposedly, thinking about them?
It’s easy to do it to men because they will pretty much believe anything a girl says. This is what happens when you aren’t really using your brain in the first place.
Whose Baby Is It?
It seems like planes nowadays come with a baby on board as a default. No matter how many times we’ve taken a flight, there was always a baby on it. And for some reason, it always had to cry.
We bet that some parents would be glad if they could just leave their baby with someone else for a couple of hours. Looks like that the plan, in this case, was similar. Too bad you can’t actually do it.
What the Fork?
We have all been guilty in the past of sending a message to the wrong person. But, is there anything more awkward than sending the wrong message to one of your parents? Moreover, this person sent a pretty nasty message to her dad by accident.
What shocked her more than anything, though, was the response from her dad. He supported her violent behavior and gave some pretty detailed advice. Dads are supposed to love their kids, no matter what, but this is going too far.
Sorted for Life
Don’t we all wish that we could get to a stage in life where we have so much money that we no longer need to work another day in our lives? That’s the goal, right? Not having to work.
Simply enjoy your life and have unlimited resources at your disposal. This guy’s tweet seemed to have all kinds of promise, but then it hit us like a ton of bricks when we realized that he was simply being really cynical about his life.
Spice Up Your Love Life
It’s not just real-life social media posts where you can find jokes that take dark turns. Here’s an example from the popular sitcom, The Office. To be fair, when you start bringing up fantasies within your private life to coworkers, things are already getting pretty dark.
But it’s the follow-up comment that Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) came up with that really put a twist on this already hilarious scene. We advise not bringing up this kind of stuff at work any time soon.
Like Father, Like Son
It can be easy to be a little reckless around your kids. After all, they are so small and you, as a parent, are so big in comparison. But, this guy should have known better than to whack his kid across the room with one single pillow.
Sure, it sounds hilarious if it happened in a Looney Tunes episode, but in real life? It sounds like an absolute nightmare. This is one of those jokes that isn’t that dark compared to others on this list. But still, it counts.
Happy Wife, Happy Life
There’s no denying that the pandemic has had a terrible impact on so many lives. Not only have people literally lost their lives, but many relationships have suffered because of all of the social distancing we have had to do.
So, imagine how stressful it must be for people who were having affairs when the outbreak hit. All of a sudden, you are no longer allowed to see that person you were having fun with on the side. Life is so difficult sometimes.
