12+ People Who Might Be Too Creative For Their Own Good

When I first started working here a couple of years ago, the lead of the Humor team gave me one piece of advice: "Let your creativity soar." Well, that is, until I went ahead and wrote an article called 16 Desired Movie Mashups. Let's just say these movie mashups weren't exactly "desired" by everyone. In fact, no one cared about that article at all — and TBF, it was completely nuts.

So, sometimes getting too creative can come back and bite you on the butt harder than a starving piranha. Let's check out a few more folks whose creativity may have gotten just a little out of hand.

1. Can I ax you a question about your table, please?

Sure, it's not the most poorly designed side table I've ever seen, but it's definitely not something you want to show off on a first date. Just a hint of a murder-y vibe here, no?

2. Open concepts are great and all, but this might be a little too open.

I mean, I guess if you've made it past that first date with ax-table dude, you could probably feel relaxed enough to open the floodgates in front of them.

3. Sometimes, it's more about knowing your audience than anything else.

And take it from someone with a 70-year-old mom: Things like this are either entirely shocking or some kind of witchcraft. Pretty sure she still thinks I'm the devil.

4. Stop!...Hammer time.

Instagram | @___memes

Yeah, you know what? It's probably for the best that we just leave moms out of it in general. Everyone's got a talent and all that, but this is a stretch — literally.

5. It's always impotent to know where you're gonna end up. 

Instagram | @official.agnew

You've gotta start somewhere, I guess! I think this guy definitely deserves a raise, if you know what I mean.

6. "Well, two can play at that game," he said.

Instagram | @kalesalad

I think that he's really Danny DeNeato! Ugh, sorry, Danny DeNeato? I can do better than that. We've gotta be kinda creative still.

7. Okay, but who would even want this for its intended purpose?

This is literally a one-time announcement in a mug — that's one use! Please only use this mug for pranks, thank you.

8. They really went for it with the Mr. Toad IRL thing here. 

Instagram | @kalesalad

Not that I don't think a regular frog could hold down a steady job and afford a treehouse, though.

9. When the student became the master.

Or the monster, if you prefer. We all have that one family member who takes things too far — just don't give them Photoshop or they'll multiply!

10. Milking it for all it's worth!

Me.me | Me.me

As the great philosopher William "The Fresh Prince" Smith once famously said, "Parents just don't understand." I mean, I can understand why in this case, though.

11. Probably the cheesiest idea I've ever seen.

Instagram | @will_ent

And I don't mean that in a Wolfman VS The Mummy kind of way. I mean an artery-clogging, world-destroying kind of way!

12. "It's not who I am underneath, but what I get shaved into my head that defines me." —Barberman Begins

Instagram | @tampons

Okay, this one's pretty darn impressive. Don't know what it'll look like when it grows out, but it's awesome right now.

13. Bless the internet for making our dreams come true.

Me.me | Me.me

Well, you at least can't deny that if you walked into the club like this, you would definitely "Get The Party Started."

14. Maybe you're a little too honest about your college experience.

Me.me | Me.me

She might not be all that impressed, but I definitely think it's worth it just to see that expression from your mom.

15. Pizza is already great, okay? We don't need any "improvements" anymore. 

The Chive | The Chive

And going this far is just gonna ruin it for everyone. Pineapple should be the only controversial pizza subject!

16. I love me some creative language, but people still gotta know what you're actually talking about!

Me.me | Me.me

That's like saying, "a bundle of carrots" or "a murder of Brussels sprouts." Well, that last one is kinda accurate, actually.

17. Well, it definitely works — but I'd be way too distracted to actually consider buying anything.

Instagram | @kalesalad

I'd pay them however much they want for the set just to get more of those chiweenie pics!

18. There's just a lot going on here.

Imgur | Crapidapity

I don't know whether to address the Crocs, or the lyrics to "Gangnam Style," or where to begin. Let's just take a minute here to be confused and then move on.

19. Now that's one risky prank!

The Chive | The Chive

I'm all for bringing the embarrassment to your family on graduation or whatever big day they're having, but don't bring the heat like that!

20. I see the appeal, I really do — I don't know if I'd be brave enough to sit through it, though! 

Instagram | Instagram

I'm barely comfortable watching that movie in my living room, let alone in the shark's den itself!

21. Yikes! That is one Lannister I would not want to be on the wrong side of.

Instagram | @god

Again, pretty creative idea — buuuut you might wanna be sure he's not around with a crossbow next time you're on the toilet.

22. I just don't know how you look at these things and come up with this.

Reddit | tristan10000

Yes, logically, it makes sense and all, but I think this joke broke my brain.

23. As if marriage wasn't horrifying enough!

Imgur | vanlawson

These two decided to take their engagement photos at Camp Crystal Lake — you know, the one where Jason roams around like a kid in a murder-y candy store.

24. Sometimes, you gotta just stand in a suit with a pretty lady, like a Ross!

Instagram | Instagram

Specifically, not like a boss. No, I want you standing there awkwardly and getting those armpits real steamy.
