15+ Bizarre Pics That Weren't Quite What They Seemed

If you stare into the abyss long enough, it's said that eventually, the abyss will stare right back.

If you stare at weird, misleading pics long enough, you'll eventually figure out what's going on. But you'll also take a long, hard look at everything for the foreseeable future to make sure it is what it appears to be.

Soul patch.

It looks like this mom is rocking a sweet late '90s flavor saver but it's actually just the Whoville-inspired hair of her daughter.

Day 15: they don't suspect a thing.

If you look at the fireplace, that isn't a raging fire. It's a person dressed as a raging fire. This is the perfect costume for people who want to sit in a fireplace all night.

Look out.

Everyone knows that cats, both big and small, stalk their prey. Whether this is a giant house cat or a tiny man, it looks like a bad situation.

Which way?

On the left, you can see a dude's jaw from underneath. On the right, you can see his nose from above. Or maybe it's the other way around.

Become the table.

Reddit | kariers

This dude is looking pretty casual as he answers questions at a press conference. I wonder if any reporter will ask him about why he's fused into the middle of the table.

Missed the mark.

Coins are so uniform that it's hard to imagine the good people at the mint making a mistake. But evidently, they do mess up the stamping from time to time.

Playing in the fountain.

Reddit | BumpoSplat

This little girl is playing in the fountain. That's all that's going on here. If you looked at this photo and saw something different, that's entirely on you.

Starry night.

You can see some real stars in this pic, but you can also see some imposter stars — droplets of dew suspended on the ends of the blades of grass.

Just one pic.

Reddit | ricrdvc

The flat top of the train tunnel in this pic makes this scene look like it's actually two scenes. Look at it long enough and it all becomes obvious.

Sun art.

Reddit | PoochieBigRig

The folds of these curtains do interesting things to the beams of sun that shine through them. In this case, it makes the beam look like graffiti art.

Wee man.

I'm still trying to get my head around the perspective trick that must be going on here. I still don't really see it.


Reddit | NateThePunk2

To some, this would look like a typical woodgrain door. To others, it might be the visage of Chewbacca watching over anyone who enters the room.

Warm Viking cloak.

Reddit | RippedYogieBear

It looks like this guy has a luxurious Viking/Game of Thrones cloak around his neck. But it's actually just a weird dog.

Not how you apple.

Reddit | kaczanek9999

Some of these apples are weirdly red on the inside. Tomatoes can be red on the inside but seeing an apple like this is a real head-scratcher.

Those angles.

Reddit | PargeLenys

This pic from Paris shows how angles can mess with pics. This house is on a hillside but if you even out the hill, it looks like the house is sinking like the Titanic.

Aerial shot?

It looks like a mountain in the middle of an autumnal forest, seen from above. But it's actually just a shot of fungus on a fallen tree in the woods.

Wait a second.

Reddit | gr8prajwalb

Look at John Oliver's tie. Looks pretty normal, right? Then look at the reflection of his tie in the desk.

Can someone tell me what's going on here?

Fire up the barbecue.

Reddit | ninjazligma

Apparently, these are all rocks but I'm not convinced. It looks more like somebody dumped a ton of raw meat in a quarry.

Poorly rendered.

Reddit | horusy13

How do the shadows in this box look so...pixelated? I'm trying to get my head around this one with limited success.

Nice and cozy.

Reddit | JCKross45

The person who posted this image said it looks like the clouds are a giant red blanket.
