People generally look to the internet so that they might feel better. There are a lot of cute pictures of puppies, kittens, and babies out there, and they will warm your heart.
Some people are masochists, though; everyone is a masochist once in a while. Sometimes you just want to feel sad. You need to get angry once in a while. At times, you need to cry.
Fortunately, the internet is very good at making you irritated. It can make you feel like crap.
Here are sixteen examples of pictures that might make you a bit mad.
1. The Packaging
People who regularly read my stuff know that I get super mad when packaging is incredibly deceptive. This is an example of deceptive packaging. What is Suave trying to pull off here? I do not approve.
It reminds me of the time I bought a can of soup that claimed it contained 20 percent more soup. It did not contain 20 percent more soup; it contained the same amount of soup that all of the other cans contained. I weighed it. I called to complain; they sent me a coupon for free soup, but did not acknowledge their deception. It was a somewhat hollow victory, but I do like free soup.
2. The Floating Horse
The horse, sadly, is not floating. It looks like it is due to angles and such, but the horse does not possess the power to float.
If you want a horse that can fly, you need to capture a unicorn; sadly, that’s difficult to do. First of all, unicorns need to actually exist. Second of all, you need to be “pure”—if you know what I mean. If you have ever intentionally let anyone touch you “down there”, you will never manage to tame a unicorn. Those are the rules!
When I think of unicorns, I think of this “King’s Quest” video game I played when I was a kid and had a really crappy computer. You were the daughter of a king who wasn’t doing so well, and it was your job to save him. It was a weird game. In addition to taming a unicorn, you had to interact with dwarves and figures from Greek mythology. If I recall correctly, there was also something about fishing. I haven’t played it in a while because the controls were horrible, but I would happily check out a remake.
3. The Woman Who is Keeping Cool
I am guessing that this picture was taken in the middle of summer. A supermarket can be a great place to cool off when the weather is warm. It is pretty important to keep produce and other food items chilly.
Speaking from personal experience, you do not want to eat food that has not been stored at the right temperature. Things can get very messy.
4. The Pillows
As you can see, these are very similar products. I am pretty sure there is no actual difference, but I can’t be sure.
I have been told that it is technically illegal to “wear” the American flag in the United States. At the very least, it is considered poor form. The sad part is that I have a few articles of clothing—if you can call them that—which embrace the American flag.
For example, I have a cowboy hat decorated with the flag. I wore it on the 4th of July, and it was a big hit. I also have shoes decorated in a similar fashion, and they are my favorite shoes. I also have t-shirts. I like the American flag; regardless of how you feel about what it represents, it is aesthetically pleasing.
5. The Fake Fruit
I would be irritated if someone tried to eat my fake fruit.
I admit that I own fake fruit. I am not sure why. At one point, it belonged to my grandmother, and it just sort of ended up in my possession when she passed. When I was a kid, she used to get super mad whenever I played with it. She wasn’t the nicest woman.
I can’t imagine anyone thinking that stuff is real, though. It definitely looks like the sort of fake fruit that was manufactured back in the 1940s. I have thought about taking it to a pawn shop and seeing if I could sell it. If I could get 30 bucks, it would totally be worth it. What am I supposed to do with fake fruit?
6. The Game Face
I like the t-shirt, and I like baseball. It is kind of weird that mannequin doesn’t have a face considering the message conveyed by the t-shirt. That sort of disturbs me a little bit.
I will admit that mannequins creep me out a little. When I was a kid, there was this one store where the female ones were sort of anatomically correct in the chest region. As an 11-year-old boy, I certainly enjoyed that to an extent. The plastic faces just kind of ruined the experience for me. It was also weird because I was always at the store with my mom. No little boy wants to look at cleavage—even fake cleavage—in front of their mother.
7. The Paper and the Toilet
This is the grossest. Why wouldn’t you want paper in your toilet? Is there some sort of plumbing situation going on here?
Furthermore, what is up with those colorful things? I really hope they’re not used for what I imagine they are used for.
I could not have survived before toilet paper was invented. I just couldn’t. I would have thrown up so hard that I would have ended up in the ground before I turned five. I am one of those people who vomits when other people vomit. I am not sure I was designed for this Earth.
8. The Expo
I can’t imagine this will be a very successful expo.
Also—why can’t I bring my dog wherever I want? He’s the size of a large gerbil. His bark is sort of piercing and haunting, but he is more or a less a good boy!
Weirdly enough, when I think of an expo, I think of SimCity. When I was a kid, I loved the Super Nintendo version of that game. You could build an expo. I had no idea what that was. My friends had no idea what it was either. This was before you could look up words on the internet, and my parents didn’t believe in dictionaries.
I wish Nintendo would make another SimCity game. I had the best time with that thing. You could get a “Mario” statue if you really tried hard—and you did have to try hard. You could also have “Bowser” destroy your city if you wanted to start a new game. It was a quirky game, but also a lot of fun. I learned a lot. In its own way, it taught me a lot about economics and government.
9. The Toilet Handle
I honestly can’t tell what that is. For the sake of this article, I am just going to assume it is chewed gum. It might be something a little grosser. Again, I have no idea what that is.
Who actually touches a public toilet handle to flush anyway? I don’t. If possible, I use my shoe. If that’s not possible, I wrap my hand in toilet paper. I also use paper towels to get out of the restroom after I wash my hands. I haven’t been really sick in several years, true, but I also have the immune system of a newborn baby. I should be living in a bubble.
When I think of people who should be living in a bubble due to a terrible immune system, I think of “Seinfeld” and that episode about the “Bubble Boy”. You can’t help but laugh. It is George at his most petty. If you have never seen that particular episode of “Seinfeld”, you need to check it out. It is available on Hulu in the United States.
10. The Door Handle
I was unaware this could happen. I am not surprised, but I was unaware. That must be disappointing.
People make fun of me for the car I drive; they don’t do so to my face, but they do so behind my back. I drive a Kia. Fifteen years ago, at least in my area, Kia was giving away an additional car if you bought one. It was a free car! That’s how terrible Kia cars were back in 2004 or so.
However, times have changed. I have owned my Kia for several years now, and I have never had a single problem with it. The battery died once because I had a backup camera installed and the installer left the car on in order to listen to the radio, but that’s it! I don’t know the name of the installer, but he listens to a lot of crap music.
My Kia drives like a dream; it is extremely comfortable, and it gets me from point A to point B in a reliable fashion.
I don’t work for Kia or anything; I just feel the need to give proper credit where proper credit is due. If I won millions in the lottery, I would buy a newer Kia. I would probably keep the one I have now, too. I have grown to love my Kia.
11. The Bad Haircut
This is a bad haircut. The person who was cutting this young woman’s hair must have had one too many glasses of wine; this is just unacceptable.
I’m not a fancy guy, but the one thing I will spend a decent amount of money on is a good haircut. My dad used to cut my hair when I was a kid in order to save money. I looked like a moron. He had absolutely no idea what he was doing. The kids at school would make fun of my hair; to be honest, I can’t blame them.
When I got a bit older and had enough money to pay for a haircut, I ended up going to this guy who they recommended. That was a huge mistake. He had one of those conditions that resulted in his hands shaking. He was something of a family friend. Frankly, my dad did a better job than he did, and at least my dad’s haircuts were free. The long and short of it all is that I didn’t get a halfway decent haircut until I was in my twenties.
12. The One About the Body Art
You have to wonder about someone who is so cheap they are willing to accept “mediocre” tattoos.
I am not a tattoo person, so I don’t really know how the business works, but this whole exchange nonetheless seems kind of weird to me. If you are going to get a tattoo, which is ostensibly permanent, don’t you want to pay top dollar when it comes to the design?
13. The Toilet Paper
I don’t completely understand the image, but I do understand the frustration. Cheap toilet paper is the absolute worst.
I used to have a friend who would buy the cheapest toilet paper he could find, and hanging out at his house was the worst. He tried to make the argument that he was saving money on stuff that would just clean the butts of his guests, but the argument sort of fell apart when I pointed out that I used far more of the cheap stuff than I would have had he bought good toilet paper.
We are not friends anymore, but a mutual friend has told me that he still buys the cheapest toilet paper he can find. What’s disturbing is that this guy now has a baby. I bet he buys the cheapest diapers out there.
14. The One About College
I agree with this. I too would be mad at the professor.
I know that going to college is a great way to meet future business contacts and possibly your future spouse, but socializing should definitely take a backseat to actually learning stuff. Classes cost a lot of money, and getting to know your classmates is often a waste of that money.
15. The Socks at the Beach
This is horrible. People should not be wearing socks at the beach.
To be honest, I am not sure why people wear darkly colored socks at all. They don’t look good on anyone. In general, socks look sort of stupid. They prevent the inside of your shoes from smelling like rotten fruit, though. I have had more than one pair of shoes ruined because I decided to spend a couple of days wandering about without wearing socks. I don’t like how bad feet smell!
16. The Decal On the Window
I suppose there is a lot to like about this decal. There really is a lot about it that is kind of amusing.
You know what I don’t like about it? It kind of looks like both of those people are staring at the waiter’s crotch. In the case of the woman, she seems way too interested in the waiter’s crotch. The man with whom she is seated should probably be worried. I speak from personal experience when I say that your date should not be staring at another person’s crotch. If she is, you should probably seek relationship counseling.
