Now that we’re in the age of the internet, we often come across some strange images on our social media pages, but now and again, we see something so downright bizarre that it’s truly hard to erase from your mind. Whether it’s a strange unidentifiable animal or a weird unexplainable scenario, there are some peculiar photos that you just can’t look away from…
Here, we see a man dressed as a banana kneeling in front of a market stall of other bananas looking rather upset. We have one key question – why? Is he Banana Man mourning the loss of his fellow species at a banana funeral?
Or is this a man born with an innate and irrational fear of bananas working towards curing his fear through exposure therapy? You just can’t tell.
Health and safety on a plane isn’t exactly something to be taken lightly, especially when it comes to the engineering of the plane itself. So why on earth have the engineers of this aircraft decided to use a piece of cardboard in place of a broken window?
Surely they realize that a few strips of sticky tape aren’t gonna cut it? If we were the passengers on board this plane, we’d undoubtedly be running straight off. No ifs, no buts.
We all remember the cartoon ‘Tom and Jerry’, right? It taught us that cats and mice don’t get along one bit, but apparently, real life can be rather different. Here you can see a pet cat who has pronounced herself as an adoptive mother to these rats.
We never knew these two animals could get on so well! The rats are no longer scared of the cat, so much so that they’ve cuddled under her fur and taken a drink of her milk as well. What on earth is going on?
We remember feeling super intelligent when we finally learned how to play chess. There’s something somewhat sophisticated about sitting down to play a game of chess, however, we can’t help but feel this man here looks the total opposite of sophisticated.
Why is he attempting to take on a goldfish? First of all, goldfish don’t have any hands to move their pieces. Second of all, with their 3-second memory, they’re not going to be able to remember their last move.
A long, hard day
This doggo here may not be 21 years old, but in dog years, he’s old enough to have a well-needed drink at his local bar. He’s quite clearly had a long, hard day, so he needs a stiff one.
Just look at his face – he’s staring into the distance contemplating his stresses and wondering what he can do to fix his problems. He cannot for the life of him remember where he buried that bone! Oh, to be a dog!
Man’s best friend
Us dog owners would do anything for our furry canine friends. Sometimes we can sit and stare at them for hours in awe of just how perfect they are. However, this couple here is staring in a rather odd direction.
We’re sure the doggo is beautiful, but it’s certainly not beautiful where they’re looking. We’re hoping the photo was captured at the wrong time, with the angle of the camera and the direction of their eyes simply being a huge unfortunate coincidence.
There’s no true explanation for what is going on in this photo or how this duck came to be sitting inside the lampshade. Is it a pet duck? Is it a home invader? Either way, the duck looks rather comfortable up there. Perhaps it’ll be best to leave them be.
They might have even chosen the lampshade as their new nest – the heat from the lightbulb would certainly provide the ducklings with some warmth. In fact, we think this duck is onto something.
Yet again, what on earth could explain this photograph? The person who took it must have had the same curiosity as we have, because flip flops and a bicycle lock are two things that don’t usually go together.
Was the person wearing flip flops chained up by the lock? Are we witnessing the evidence left behind from the world’s strangest kidnapping case? Well, the truth is, we may never know, but there’s a perfectly decent pair of flip flops going to waste.
Get in line!
Foxes are nocturnal animals, meaning we rarely see them roaming the streets during the day, especially when there are lots of people about. Hence why this photo here is rather strange to see. Have you ever seen such a carefree fox?
Usually they stay well away from you, but this fox here has no qualms in going for a little stroll amongst the human daytime pedestrians. In fact, it looks as though he’s jumped in the queue for the ATM machine. Hey buddy! Wait your turn.
Follow the leader
You’ve gotta appreciate this couple’s ingenuity – who knew a rocking horse could make such a fantastic mobility scooter accessory? The best part about the photo is the fact that both the man and the woman are acting as though what they’re doing is perfectly normal.
Then again, if it means he gets to have a sit down to rest his feet, then why not? Let’s just hope he’s holding onto his reigns tightly, or they could have an unwanted accident on their hands.
Even if we have a hundred guesses on what is going on in this photo, we’re not sure we’d be able to get it right. Seriously, what is happening? Why is there a horse locked inside what looks like a police interrogation room?
Why does the horse have a conspicuous look on his face? What’s more, why is there a pair of legs lying on the floor? Is that why the horse is being interrogated? We have so many questions.
Play the music
As you walk through any city center to soak up the hustling and bustling atmosphere, you’re more than likely to bump into some form of street performer playing an instrument. However, the chances of you bumping into a performer like this are pretty slim.
The metal gate he’s holding is clearly being used as a musical instrument, but does a barrier like that even make a sound? Perhaps he’s a mime artist? If only we could hear!
It’s perfectly normal to see a dog being taken for a walk on a leash, but putting any other pets on a leash is simply strange. Then, there’s this photo… Do the women know they’re taking their irons for a stroll? Do they not realize that the iron will get damaged like that?
Why would they carry it like that? There’s simply no explanation. Unless they have genuinely mistaken their irons for their pet chihuahuas… if so, we hate to think where they’ve put their dogs.
“Have children!” they say. “It’ll change your life,” they say. “They’ll bring you so much joy!” they say. Well, just take a look at this photograph. Does this look like joy? Or does it look like absolute destruction? Well, it depends on how you look at the situation.
On the one hand, we can’t help but grin at their little innocent faces. On the other hand, we cannot help but drop our jaws in awe of how naughty some kids can be. Then again, we were all kids once.
Just in case
This guy here is the type of person who likes to take extra safety precautions, and his luggage is certainly one of these safety steps. To ensure his suitcase never gets lost or stolen, he’s decided to print the case in his favorite photo of himself.
That way, he can be sure that no one would take it accidentally or even on purpose. We can’t work out whether this idea is pure genius or just down-right bizarre. Or both…
Attack of the seagulls
It seems seagulls are getting less and less scared of us humans at the beach. They’ll take anything from us, especially food. One minute you’re enjoying a delicious bag of fries, then the next minute, it’s been snatched from your hands straight into the mouth of a seagull swarming above.
This guy here has quite clearly had enough of their thieving crime because he’s purposefully mocking them by covering himself in what looks like buttered bread. This could go one of two ways, but one thing’s for sure… he’s a brave man!
This photo is both hilarious and creepy at the same time, but more importantly, what on earth is going on? Why is the prom-goer posing with a sewing machine in his hand and a strange-looking grin on his face?
Why is he posing in front of a van which has veered off-road down into a ditch? The two subjects of this photo simply don’t make sense together. Is the prom-goer the culprit for the van losing control? What on earth has the sewing machine got to do with anything?
Precious bundle of joy
An adult sleeping with a teddy bear is bordering on strange, but in some ways, we can accept it – there’s nothing wrong with wanting a cuddle from your precious bundle of joy at night. However, there’s definitely something bizarre about having a cuddle with your motorbike at night…
Especially when you have your girlfriend on the other side of you. We imagine she’d be far more squidgy and cozy to cuddle than a metal bike, too. Then again, each to their own.
Have you ever seen such a snazzy looking car? Have you ever seen such a mass collection of ornaments in one place? What’s more, have you ever seen ornaments stuck onto a vehicle before? No, us neither. We can’t for the life of us pin-point a reason for this decoration.
Perhaps the car-owner is a Disney memorabilia hoarder and has run out of room in their house to keep it all? Or maybe they just want to be strikingly different for the sake of it – and with that, they have succeeded.
Computer screen carnage
Are our eyes fooling us? Is this a costume? Or is this truly the way that this woman dresses? If we were to hop on the subway to see this staring at us, we’d definitely move into the next carriage.
Surely walking around all day with a computer screen monitor on your head would give you a bad neck? How can she even see out of it? More importantly, why are the fellow passengers not freaked out like we are? Is this the new normal now?
Let’s be real – we all love Nutella, and if you don’t, then, well, we don’t have anything to say to you right now. However, our love for Nutella stops at breakfast. Perhaps we’re partial to a slice of Nutella and toast as a midnight snack, but the delicious jar of nutty-choccy goodness should certainly never be spread on anything but food.
Hence why we can’t stand looking at this photo here of someone spreading Nutella on their mobile phone. Just nope.
Pickled pigs lips
Here’s another photo that we simply can’t get out of our heads. Yes, you have read this right. There is, in fact, such a thing as a jar of pickled pigs’ lips. Do you want to give them a try? No, didn’t think so. Who would even want to eat such a monstrosity?
Pigs may well be beautiful and intelligent creatures to us vegetarians, and bacon is certainly appealing to us meat-eaters too – but we draw the line at pickled pigs’ lips. In fact, we draw a big red cross through them.
Snacking at the wheel
Dangerous driving is a federal crime, so does this kind of behavior count as hazardous? We’re not quite sure why the car-owner has covered their steering wheel with pepperoni, but we’re guessing it was a quick way of snacking while driving?
You won’t even have to look down to find the tub of pepperoni, all you need to do is move your hand slightly to the right or slightly to the left, and then up to your mouth. Delicious or dangerous?
Better safe than sorry
Whether head helmets are a legal requirement or not, we don’t quite understand why anyone would want to ride a motorcycle without one. Things can go badly wrong, and your head is not a part of your body you want unprotected.
Hence why this woman has been forced to improvise due to her being without a standard helmet. So, she’s chosen to use a metal saucepan instead. Would that work? Or is it a terrible idea?
Iron and wash
This photo seems as though it’s been taken just moments before disaster struck – and for some reason or another, we believe it’s got something to do with a shark or an iron. Either one… But first things first, why is this man doing his ironing while submerged under the ocean?
Household chores, electrical equipment and scuba-diving don’t really mix, and when you add a great white shark to that combination, things can go even more terribly wrong.
Who knew sloths were such great students? Just look at this happy little sloth here as it sits down to prepare for its midterms. The smug smirk he’s wearing on his face clearly shows that he’s been studying extremely hard for these exams – there’s nothing wrong with feeling confident!
However, knowing the speed that sloths tend to write, we’re hoping he’s been awarded a few extra days in order to make sure it’s completed in time. Good luck, Mr. Sloth!
Tigers are an incredibly majestic animal, but that doesn’t mean we’d want to run into not just one, but three of them taking a bath in our outside tub. In fact, we’re pretty sure we’d run a mile if we ever came across this.
Yet again, we can’t help but feel we want to join them. Sure, the water looks pretty mucky, and it’s probably rather cold too, but who has ever been able to say they shared a hot tub with three tigers?
The toilet bowl isn’t exactly the most inviting place in the world, so why, oh why, is this woman diving into her toilet? Whether it’s photoshopped or another perfectly timed gymnastic pose, it doesn’t really matter – why would you want to look like you’re about to take a swim in your toilet anyway?
What’s more, her diving technique isn’t up to scratch either. She needs to straighten up her arms into more of a point. Then, and only then, may we forgive her for her dirty antics.
On the box
There’s no moment more relaxing than when we get in from work on a Friday to lay on the couch and stick on the TV. However, these guys here haven’t got that luxury. They have neither a chair or a TV – so what do you do? Well, you improvise.
As you can see, they’ve drawn the shape of a TV around a hole in the wall, and are now taking it in turns to entertain via the hole, or, as they’d call it, the TV on the wall.
Drinking water disaster
Yet again, if your stomach churns easily, look away now! Urinals and water bottles are another combination that should never go together. In fact, it’s an abomination to humanity if they do ever come in contact.
This young boy clearly doesn’t understand the water pouring from a urinal isn’t water you’d want to drink from. Then again, by the grinning look on his face, he looks as though he’s about to get up to no good by starting a water fight.
Everyone loves a slice of refreshing watermelon. They’re delicious, they’re juicy, and they’re the perfect accompaniment for a light and healthy breakfast. However, by the looks of this photo, they also make a great Halloween mask too.
All you have to do is scoop out the inside, cut out two eye holes, and you have yourself a terrifying watermelon mask. Just look at this guy here who’s decided to scare the other train passengers around him.
Hang on, wait a second…
At first glance of this photo, you may not notice that anything is bizarre with it. Even if you look a little longer, you still might struggle! Now look at the right hand of the woman in blue and tell us that there’s nothing wrong…
It looks as though it’s going straight through the flesh of the guy’s shoulder. Is it photoshopped? Is it a fake hand? Has she accidentally punctured him with her extra-long nails? We’ll probably never know.
We all love to photobomb the selfies that our friends try to take, but when it comes to accidentally being in the background of a stranger’s selfie, it’s probably best to stay calm, look away, and act as though you didn’t realize that they were even taking it.
Or, on the other hand, you could pose like this woman here has done – look straight down the middle of the camera lens with the straightest, most unimpressed face possible, as if to say, “Get me out of your photo immediately!”
Here’s another strange train passenger that has caught the eye of one particular traveler sitting opposite her. Why? Well, it’s clear to see her legs are twisted in the most bone-crackingly bizarre directions.
To top it off, her feet are bent in a painful-looking way too. Is she double jointed? We put $100 on her being a circus performer. If so, we’re rather impressed with her body distortion – we didn’t quite know this was even humanly possible.
Bad gym day
Even the fittest of gym-goers started as nervous and uneducated amateurs in the beginning. The weight section at the gym can be somewhat daunting at first, but after a while, you’ll find the hang of it.
Just like this guy here who’s clearly found a new way of using dumbbells to work out his arms and shoulders – yet again, we’re not even sure this form of isolated move is even possible for the human body to do.
