If there’s one thing you can find on the internet, it’s a little bit of ridiculousness. Having a single superhighway for people to surf around on and post all their deepest, darkest thoughts and crazy images is frankly a recipe for weird when you think about it.
Even just a quick browse through the vast recesses of the internet yields insane results. Some of what you find while you’re online is certainly unmentionable, but there are plenty of other quirky stuff out there that’s worth some extra spotlight.
So, we put together a list of 20 ridiculous things that are the definition of, “overkill,” for your viewing pleasure. But, be warned. Although many of these images are hilarious, there are a few that are just plain bizarre.
20 That's One Way To Do It
At this point in music history, Lil Uzi Vert is known for quite a few different things. Most people recognize him as one of mumble rap's major players; other people view him as a current fashion icon and trendsetter; and some people out there simply think of him as that annoying rap guy with the terrible face tattoos.
Now, getting a tattoo on your face really isn’t any of our business. Sure, we would probably encourage you not to go through with it. But, at the end of the day, that decision is yours and only yours to make.
But, to get face tattoos as a way to commit fully to your art form is a bit much. After all, what if the rap thing hadn’t worked out?
19 Better Safe Than Sorry
Nobody being likes being, “that person,” at the party who’s drunk out of their mind and making a complete fool of themselves. It happens from time to time, but no matter what, it’s never a good look.
Anyone who has ever been this person knows just how humiliating it is and how much damage control is necessary to let everyone know you’re sorry for acting like a doofus. But, if you’re lucky, you have some cool friends who, instead of judging you, will relentlessly mock you for getting so wasted.
Case and point: the friends depicted in the text thread above. It’s one thing to get super drunk at your own house party. It’s another thing to get so drunk at your own house party that you call a cab to take you home.
18 How Does That Even Happen?
We don’t know why exactly you decided to make iPhone screens so fragile. But, if you could just maybe spend a few extra minutes in R&D, figuring out a way to make them a bit more sturdy, we would all really appreciate it.
Everyone who’s drunkenly dropped their cell phone.
Anyone who has ever had an iPhone and a few cocktails can probably get behind this sentiment.
You’d think that a company as massive and successful as Apple would be able to make their products more durable. But, as you can see in the photo above, that is certainly not the case.
To be honest, we have no idea what the kid was on in the picture above that caused him to completely rip his phone in half. But, if you’re listening, Apple, it shouldn’t be that easy to totally demolish your phones.
17 The Sweetest Revenge
Working at a fast food restaurant really is a nightmare. People will tell you that it builds character, but really it’s just a version of purgatory that exists on almost every corner in the world.
Most people have to take positions at fast food joints when they first join the workforce. Without proper work history, these places really are your only option early on when you’re trying to save up some money for your first car.
But, as terrible as it is to work for McDonald’s, Burger King, Jack in the Box, etc., there really is no better feeling than quitting when the time is right. After slaving over hot grease pits, dealing with horrendous customers, and having to work the incredibly long hours, being able to finish up your last day is just the best.
16 Step Away From The Pug
You know all those jokes that people make about crazy cat people? Well, that kind of lunacy isn’t reserved solely for our feline friends. There are plenty of crazy dog people out there who take their relationships with their pets a little too far.
Like this crazy pug parent, for example. We can get behind someone having a shirt with their dog’s face on it.
But, to have that shirt and also a matching mask to go along with it is definitely overkill.
You can even see the look of absolute terror on the dog’s face as it gazes upon its owner, wondering, “what the borkin’ heck are you doing, dude?”
Note to dog owners everywhere: if your dog ever looks at you like that, you need to do some reevaluating in your life.
15 Behold, the Pogo-Plunger
Public restrooms are some of the most disgusting places a person can go. Of the many truly gross locations a person can visit, there’s just something about a public bathroom that can be enough to make your skin crawl.
Part of it is due to human beings being some of the nastiest creatures to ever have inhabited Planet Earth. And if that’s something you disagree on, then we encourage you to visit a public restroom and look really closely at your surroundings. They’re the absolute worst.
Now, as human beings, we know that we are capable of some pretty gross stuff. All animals are. But, if you’re the type of person who needs a Pogo-Plunger whenever you go to the bathroom, it may be time for you to clean up your diet.
When it comes to food these days, people can be pretty adventurous. There just doesn’t seem to be a type of cuisine out there that’s too wild for people to try, not to mention mix with other types of cuisine to create something even weirder.
This can be both a good thing and a bad thing.
In some cases, the kind of food fusion you see on menus at restaurants all over the world are truly refreshing and palatable. But, unfortunately, it doesn’t take much for this melding of worlds to go from great to gross.
For instance, you have probably heard of chocolate fountains. It sounds pretty good, right? Well, swap the chocolate for some ketchup, and swap the marshmallows and strawberries for McDonald’s fries and cheeseburgers.
13 A True Abomination
Much like we mentioned in our last entry, too much of a good thing can quickly become a bad thing if you’re not careful. And this rule applies to pretty much everything, including the kinds of foods you choose to consume on a daily basis.
Although not exactly something you should eat every day, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a slice of pizza every now and then. It’s greasy, it’s delicious, and for the health conscious, you can even throw some veggies on it so you feel a little less guilty when you’re throwing back slices of the good stuff.
But, you have to be out of your mind to top your pizza with smaller pizzas, Bagel Bites, and Pizza Rolls. Whoever ate the abomination pictured above should probably keep a Pogo-Plunger on hand.
12 Watch It, Taco
Greeting cards are something that have really taken on new life over the years. Back in the day, they were pretty straightforward and not particular edgy whatsoever.
But, as time has gone on, more clever writers have joined the ranks of Hallmark and other similar companies and have given greeting cards a much needed, not to mention hilarious, facelift.
When you go down the greeting card aisle nowadays, you’re met with all kinds of fun, quirky, and sometimes even slightly offensive, jokes plastered on cards for your mom, your dad, your siblings, and everyone else in between.
Some definitely toe the line more than others. But, every now and then you see one that you can’t really decide how to feel about. Case and point: the card pictured above.
11 You Need a Hobby
People do all kinds of crazy things to pass the time. Some people have really healthy hobbies and habits that help bolster their lifestyle and keep themselves on track.
Others, however, choose less than savory pastimes that, more often than not, end up wasting quite a bit of their precious time on Earth.
For example, out of all the things you can spend an afternoon doing, why in the world would you spend it pulling all of the seeds out of a strawberry one by one? There just has to be more productive ways for someone to pass the time.
We will admit though that a seedless strawberry is fairly satisfying to look at. But, now what is the person who did this going to do with all of those seeds?
10 Boom, Headshot
No matter how tough you are, there’s a little bit of Arachnophobia that lives inside all of us. As human beings, we just can’t help but be slightly terrified of those eight-legged freaks that lurk around each and every corner in our homes.
When faced with one of these monsters, it’s super easy to irrationally freak out, reach for the nearest shoe, and start wildly smashing at the floor. But, in these moments, rather than losing your mind, it’s important to do your best to keep your cool.
And if that doesn’t work, well, you can always grab a high-powered firearm and aim it point blank at the spider that’s giving you some trouble. We certainly don’t recommend this, but, as you can see in the photo above, it is an option that you have.
9 Ore-Oh No
Oreos are some of the most delicious snack cookies that money can buy. Everybody knows that. But, another thing that everybody knows is that there are a few different ways that a person can consume a sleeve of Oreos.
Some people choose to dip their cookies in milk, while others choose to forego the milk. The are others out there who go the deep fried route and cook up their Oreos like they’re dark-colored onion rings.
When it comes down to it, there really is no wrong way to eat Oreos.
But, if there were a wrong way it would be the way you see pictured above.
Not only is that a whole lot of work, there’s just no way you’d be able to eat it without making a gigantic mess.
8 Just Go Around Me
Everyone at some point in their lives has had a little too much to drink. Whether or not they ended up passed out on the bathroom floor really just depends on the evening in question, but it’s certainly something that’s happened to just about everyone at least once in their life.
Drinking a bit too much looks a little different for everyone. But, one thing’s for sure: whoever it is doing the drinking ends up looking pretty silly.
Take the person above who posted this status update to Facebook, for example. You have to be pretty drunk to pass out on your neighbor’s lawn. And you have to be pretty hungover to not even be able to get up when the lawnmower kicks on.
7 Beer Pong 12.0
Depending on what kind of party person you are, there’s nothing better (or worse) than a good, old-fashioned game of beer pong.
Usually beer pong bouts take place in your friend’s garage as it continues to fill more and more with secondhand cigarette smoke. It’s a joyous occasion for all involved, that is if you’re the type of person who likes to have absolutely no fun at all at parties.
If you’re good at the game, it really can be a great way to get the competitiveness out of your system, all the while being able to indulge in alcoholic beverages.
However, if you’re bad at the game, have fun spending the next half an hour struggling to throw a ping pong ball into a plastic cup.
6 Enough's Enough
It seems that these days people who wear cologne aren’t too familiar with the general rule of thumb. When applying said cologne, you really don’t want to wear too much. In fact, when it comes to cologne, or even perfume for that matter, less is definitely more.
You want people to be able to smell you from about two feet away, not twenty feet away. So, the next time you’re spraying on the good stuff, make sure you’re conscious of how much you’re putting on, otherwise you’re going to end up smelling like a tank of gasoline.
No matter what the commercials say, members of the opposite sex aren’t going to swoon when they can smell you from a mile away. You need to be way more subtle than that.
5 So Cute
Releasing doves at a wedding isn’t something you see too much of anymore. A few years ago, watching those adorable, white birds sail off into the sky was a truly joyous occasion. Nowadays, if you see doves being released at a wedding, you can’t help but think of it as pretty tacky.
We aren’t sure when the public’s opinion of doves being released at a wedding changed, but, it’s clear that wedding goers everywhere are in need of something different.
So, hear us out, instead of doves, wouldn’t it be totally cool if full on wild ostriches were released at weddings? You have to admit it would at least be way more exciting than watching a couple silly, white birds fly away.
4 The Heart Wants What It Wants
Remember staying home from school back in the day so you could watch hours and hours of garbage television while your parents were at work? Well, if so, then you should be pretty familiar with the types of people who go on shows like Maury, and in the case of the man pictured above, Tyra.
There is a school of thought out there that all of the people on those shows are merely actors hired to act completely insane on T.V. Part of us definitely could see that being true, but it’s honestly way more fun to pretend there are actual people on the screen in front of us as we are watching.
Because if Darren really just wanted a drama-free relationship, then there’s no way he would need to throw on that ridiculous costume and go on, “Tyra,” just to tell people about it. Get some sense, Darren.
3 Not Quite
No matter how you slice it, medications and other substances, as a whole, are incredibly bad for you. Whether you got them over the counter, from a pharmacist, or scored them in a dark alley, substances can have really adverse effects on you if not taken responsibly.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of people out there who ignore this guidance and experiment with many different substances every chance they get.
We wish this wasn’t the case, but it’s just the way the world is these days.
And of these many people who are out there experimenting with substances, there are a few who routinely do them incorrectly. We aren’t sure if they were just ill-informed, or maybe just kind of careless, but, what we do know is that every time they do drugs, they’re really putting themselves in danger.
2 Easy There
Let’s face it, memes have absolutely taken over the world. Everywhere you look on the internet these days, you can’t even avoid them. They’re on almost every website you frequent and there’s not a whole lot you can do about that.
But, as much of a time waster as memes can be, you do have to admit they’re pretty hilarious.
Well, that is if you have friends with good taste who send you all the good stuff as soon as they have had a chance to look it over.
Because, believe it or not, there’s a sense of referral that goes along with memes. And there’s nothing worse than someone sending you a meme they claim is, “fire,” only to be disappointed by how unfunny it is.
Remember those crazy cat ladies that we mentioned earlier? Well, the lady pictured above has got to be one of the craziest to have ever lived.
We aren’t sure how difficult it is to train one cat, let alone sixty-five, to effectively steal from your neighbors. But, we imagine it takes quite a while for them to pick up on it.
Much like training dogs or any other animals, it takes a lot of effort to get your furry friends to do your bidding. Even something as simple as sit and shake can take hours if your pet is feeling especially stubborn.
So, we can only assume that this lady is some kind of cat wizard. How else was she able to get that many cats to steal from people?
