Entitled Influencer's Dad Disputes Contest, Ruins Entire Project

All it had to be was a dumb marketing project with some giveaway stuff, but one "do you know who my father is" type just had to be involved. Overzealous and aggressive parents speaking on behalf of their children can lead to a lot of pain and suffering down the road, like this parent who blamed a teacher for their own kid not being in virtual class.

Cringey Braggarts Who Think They're Brilliant

Most of us have some sense of decorum online, but there also exists a group of cringey mind-tyrants who try way too hard to seem smart. It's a world of longwinded "takedowns" of okay tv shows, overly wordy self appraisals and paragraphs on not understanding jokes. Just a real fun group of bragging mind lords.

Humorous Times People and Things Were Singled Out Unfairly

With all the misfortune life likes to throw at people, there are moments when life has a way of singling certain people and things out in a way that's so unfair, it just becomes funny. To think that the universe has an agenda against one particular person or thing may be severe, but sometimes it sure seems like it.

Dude's Nephew Starts A Housefire for TikTok, Wants Whole Family Out

On the one hand, it's nice to live in your own peaceful home without the risk of further fires. On the other hand, how much sympathy is the right amount to extend in order to keep your extended family off the streets? It's a bit of a rough one. Those kooky kids learn all sorts on the Tik Toks, like this dad who found out his daughter who filed her teeth for TikTok.

Design Failures That Could Use Some Rethinking

Everyone wants to leave work early, but sometimes it takes a few design fails to get there. Ill conceived products, idiotic font choices, and some less-than-mastery of photoshop get people into some weird situations. Adding to that, the pesky thing with reality is that sometimes things don't fit where you want them to. Enough "not my job" moments of failure have proven that.

Total Strangers People Will Never Forget

It's weird that we're surrounded by people all the time, but it's against social convention to have a meaningful relationship with any of them. As rare as it is, people will take time out of their lives to make more of an impact than being just a face in the crowd. Some of these interactions are strange encounters, others are wholesome, but the one thing they all are is memorable.

Cringeworthy and Inadvisable Construction Maneuvers

There are some things, like bulging water damage that just hurt to see. There are other unsafe maneuvers that we have more control over, like jacking up a car with another car, that also hurt to see. It's a mess of improper execution and incompetent construction out there, as creative or convenient as it may seem at the time

Voracious Trees That Engulfed Things

Everyone things that trees are peaceful, but in reality they're the only thing out there willing to eat anything. No predator out there would think to eat a motorcycle. Sure, you have to lean that puppy up against a tree and wait a few years, but by gum after a decade or so those famished trees will engulf that sucker. It should be known that trees are low key monsters.

Safety Failures That Would Have Osha Filling Its Pants

Work in any physical job for a day or two and you'll likely see some OSHA-unapproved moments of safety failure that you may wish you hadn't. Extremely high ladders, improperly handled safety harnesses, unsafe tools and long-past-due fire extinguishers are just a few things one might see lurking around. And that's not even counting the unsafe maneuvers so many people try to pull off daily. Safety first.

Absurd Pet Names People Encountered

Why not name a dog "Big Boy Binglebangle" or "Lunchbox?" Why not name a cat "Federico Feline-y?" Well, at some point you're gonna have to bring them to the vet, look another human being in the eyes and say "I'm worried that Sergeant Jebediah Funkness III has a heart condition" and  all of a sudden things have gotten weird. That said, a dumb name doesn't mean a dumb pet. Here are some worryingly smart stunts pulled by people's pets.

People Who Aggressively Didn't Get The Joke

Most of us have a decent idea of how jokes work, or we are at least somewhat adept of seeing the signs of when something is a joke. It would be rough walking around this world just thinking everyone is stupid and wrong all the time. To further confuse the literal minded, here are some technically accurate moments that aren't wrong. And for some straight up dumbness, here are some facepalm moments from humanity's beacons of stupid.

Management Pays Rent On Equipment, Wastes Tens of Thousands

Anyone who's ever been tempted by anything at Rent-A-Center has done the math and decided it's a stupid idea to rent a TV, so why are corporate big wigs getting away with the business version of the same thing? It seems like almost anyone would be better at budgeting than these suits. For another genius move by management, here's a time management illegally banned overtime pay and IT got it all back.

Weird and Ridiculous Junk People Tried Selling Online

What's the use of throwing anything away? If someone finds some dumb junk, they're gonna try selling it online. It's amazing what kinds of things people will try to pass off as collectable these days, but that doesn't stop anyone from trying. Old Taco Bell furniture, unique-looking cheetos and homemade lawnmowers are all at the top of the list of ridiculous junk people try to sell online.

Products That Are Too Marked Up For Their Own Good

Just about everything is a little bit of a racket. Hell, if everything was sold at cost, there'd be no reason for anyone to run a business. It's when businesses use brand sway and deceitful practices to drive insane markups that things start to seem unfair and hairy. Even if you are spending a lot on movie theater sodas and designer eyeglasses, at least you're not following these bits of the dumbest financial advice people have gotten. On the other side of it, here are reckless uses of money that people didn't regret at all.

Pun Business Names That Really Went For It

Does a business with a funny name make it a better business? Honestly, no. And in some case, like going to a chiropractor with a silly name would probably feel like a deal breaker. Who in this world wants their spine guy to be full of dad jokes? That said we can't fault these entrepreneurs for hinging the success of their business on a silly name they thought of.
