13+ Photos That Are Only Funny ‘When You See It’

Sydney Brooman 17 Jul 2019

Did you ever read those I Spy books when you were little? Sometimes life recreates them for us—mostly when we least expect it.

These are the kinds of photos that, no matter how hard you try, you could never capture on purpose. You may think they're normal at first glance, but trust me— when you see it, you'll understand.

1. God Save The Queen

Reddit | jaydetaylor

This may be the single greatest photo bomb of all time. Fight me on it, I dare you.

If my sister chose to pass out at the exact moment of mine and my husband's first kiss as a married couple, I would revive her just so I could knock her out myself.

Sometimes it's better to be the black sheep in the flock, right Rover?

Reddit | themuffinmann82

The photographer didn't even notice the sheep until after taking the picture.

20. Did You Enjoy Your Meal?

It's clearly the reflection of the photographer in the mirror, but the way he's leering down at the phone is super creepy.

I think they meant "excursions." At least, I really hope they did.

29. Betrayed Elmo

Those Times Square characters are pretty creepy all on their own, but I'm kind of worried for Woody once the tourist is gone and Elmo gets revenge.

30. Snack Time

Is there anything more Canadian than hiding from the spotlight while enjoying a bag of Hickory Sticks?

31. Hi, Bruce!

This shark doesn't even look dangerous. It's practically smiling for the camera.

32. Pooping Rainbows


Apparently, unicorns aren't the only animals that do this.

Man, Kimberly is looking really buff. Also, the photobombing police are hilarious.

That doggo must have pretty poor manners if they can't even come into the room when there is pizza.

35. That One Friend

There's always that one person that has to pull a stupid face every time a camera is pointed at them.

36. More Than Meets The Eye

Reddit | NaethanC

You might be wondering why I'm showing you the back of someone's head while they're listening to headphones, but look closer.

That's right, it turns out that we were looking at a lot more of this woman than we thought.

37. A Surprise Guest

If you saw this one immediately, then congratulations! You have much sharper eyes then the uploader's mother, who still hasn't noticed the party crasher from a galaxy far, far away.

38. When You Realize It

Reddit | harleyc13

There's nothing actually hidden in this picture, but it seems unlikely that these green screen photos will turn out quite as planned.

That green screen may put guests in a different environment, but they'll only be sharing it with a floating shell and bandanna.

39. The Most Sinister Banana

Reddit | phetish23

I'm not sure what that banana at bottom right thinks we did, exactly, but it can't prove anything!

Getting people to buy so they can destroy the evidence is an interesting sales tactic, though.

40. Hello, There

Reddit | oldsigh

At first, it's pretty hard to know what we're supposed to be looking at, but the most awkward part of this picture is definitely what's going on at the bottom left.

Um, can we help you, sir?

41. I'm Not Complaining, But How Did It Get There?

Reddit | _kcrimson_

If you're not sure what I'm talking about, check out the middle window in this image. It looks like cats aren't the only ones that can suddenly appear outside our windows to stare at us.

Good to know.

42. He Thought He Could Get Away With It

Reddit | NickSheridanWrites

This guy wanted to show off his new braids, but his phone ended up revealing more than he bargained for.

Unfortunately, the no-pants approach only works for Skype interviews.

43. Phil, Are You In Here?

Reddit | s0ftbAc0n

It's not unheard of for us to show up wearing the same shirt as somebody else, but things get a little weird when you recognize your weird skull picture on TV.

I guess they're more popular than we thought?

44. In Plain Sight

Reddit | rchlmcd

This will either be painfully obvious to you or it will take forever to spot.

As for why it's so easy to miss, it's probably because the pole of the lamp looks a lot like the ones we grab on the train.

Yeah, there's an entire lamp standing here.

45. He Finally Spared Some Expense

Reddit | Man_Waffles87

It's so magically appropriate that we happened to find a guy who looks like John Hammond on the bus right next to someone wearing precisely the right T-shirt.

I knew the park's lax safety standards would get him sued into oblivion.

46. I'll Sleep When I'm Dead

I mean, a cemetery is quiet? There are reasons for that, but we don't have to get into all of that now. Sign here!

47. Kids These Days

I mean, it's crazy that the kid managed to climb up there, but I really feel for the employee on the left that appears to be running to help get the kid down.

48. There's Waldo!

Reddit | holycrapidonteven

I kind of hope that guy dresses up and goes to crowded events just so that he can randomly appear in the background of photos.

49. Prom Night

Reddit | sukleysalt

The front-and-center couple seem to be having a good time here, but I can't say the same for the girl in the background. Ah well, there's always, um, high school reunion?
