20 People Who Made Their Dreams (And Our Nightmares) Come True

Never let it be said that humans, as a species, let ourselves get deterred from our goals, even if those goals are horrifying to anyone else. Sometimes you get an idea in your head and you just have to bring it to life, even if it makes the world just that much a worse place afterwards.

Here are 20 people who brought their visions to life, no matter the cost.

To infinity and... beyond...?

Space is a dangerous place, even for a brave astronaut like Buzz Lightyear. Here's hoping the new solo Buzz movie has a slightly happier ending than this one.

You have the right to bear lamps.

If the way to turn on these lamps isn't by pulling the trigger, then I think whoever brought this vision to life really missed an easy mark.

I don't think this is how photosynthesis works.

This is almost, almost, a cute idea, but I don't know if I could bring myself to do what you're supposed to do at urinals to these happy little flowers. I'm just not strong enough.

Cleaning always makes me hungry.

If this Mop O' Noodles didn't have those chunks in it, I could almost get behind this creation. Unfortunately, I can't support giant meat chunks. It's just not who I am.

Is this what they mean by business casual?

Have you ever been getting ready for a fancy event or your office job and just wished for a way you could wear your Crocs and still be following the dress code? These loafers have got you covered. Except for the holes.

Orange you glad this isn't a banana jacket?

I wish I could say I find this jacket a-peel-ing, but unfortunately, I'm all out of puns for the day.

At least it matches.

I have to say, I've probably slept on LESS comfortable surfaces than a brick couch, but I've definitely slept on MORE comfortable surfaces than a brick couch.

Happy new hairs!

While I can't say I'm a huge fan of this haircut, I do have to admit that it is pretty sharply done. I'd love to see what this looks like when it's grown out.

Have an issue? Here's a tissue.

On the one hand, I don't know why this exists, but on the other, if I was crying and someone handed me this to grab a tissue from, I think I'd probably stop crying. So maybe that's a win.

Give us a smile!

I can sort of understand why a dentist's office might want a Minnie Mouse with teeth, but I can't understand why anyone would make one in the first place, unless they have dreams of traumatizing children and making sure they NEVER want to go to the dentist again.

Chicken soupsicle for the soul?

Yes, you read that right. That's a chicken soup popsicle. Apparently they don't taste too bad, and in some parts of the world, they're pretty common. I think I'm okay just using a bowl, though.

Take a seat!

I can't say I've ever been sitting in a chair and thought, "You know, I wish this chair had human arms, and paws, and also hooves," but I guess that's where me and this chair-maker differ.

She must spend a fortune on contact solution.

This is some impressive makeup work, but I just can't see why someone would decide to bring life to this particular artistic vision. Get it? Okay, I'll show myself out.

Nothing like a piece of statement jewelry to tie a look together.

I love some loud jewelry pieces, but I don't know if I could handle Barbie stealing the show from me every time I went out.

Fried chicken roasting on an open fire...

Colonel Sanders nipping at your nose... I'm not sure who's been asking for fire logs that smell like KFC, but I'm sure they must be having the best winter of their lives.

Those are, believe it or not, pink feathers.

While the pink feathers not quite covering the entire back might be a mark of high fashion, I would hate to be the one to point out to her that it looks like... something else from far away.

On second thought, I'll use the other entrance.

I think this must be a pull door, but if I reached down to open a door and grabbed a hand made of wood, I think my instinct would be to push it as far away from me as possible.

It's a good joke. A great joke, even...

I think getting your car towed by a literal toe truck is only adding insult to injury at this point.

The best thing since horizontally sliced bread.

I guess horizontally sliced bread is helpful if you want to make the world's biggest, hardest to eat sandwich, but I can't imagine they sell enough of these to make it worth keeping that many in stock.

You could probably do this with any CVS receipt.

And hey, would you look at that! 30% off deodorant! Now that's a real steal.

What are YOU looking at?

Ah, yes, this is just what I need. A dresser that will judge me for how long it takes me to pick out an outfit every day.

He who must not be tatted.

The skill of this tattoo artist is clearly evident, but I might have a few questions for the person who wanted to see what Voldemort would look like if he was The Joker.

I've heard about spaghetti straps before, but this is something else.

I don't know who decided that they loved spaghetti so much that they just HAD to create a shoe to show off their favorite dish, but I guess they proved that nothing is impastable.

Not sure I like the direction of the gritty, realistic TMNT reboot.

You know, I don't think I've ever been watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and thought, "What would these guys look like in real life?"

And I hope I never do.

Honestly, I'm impressed by the tension here.

As a relatively new knitter on the scene, I can't say I've never actually been tempted to try something like this with my noodles, but this person has gone above and beyond.

Oh, dam.

It's not every day you can say you saw the Beavermobile headed down the road, and I think we should be pretty grateful for that.

The drink that... smiles back...

I guess this is quite literally a monster can of Monster, but I could've done without adding another creature to the rotation in my nightmares.

Eye like your ring...

My mom always said she had eyes on the back of her head, but I never knew you could have eyes on the back of your hand too.

Are those... shorts?

Not only does this arcade machine look like it might fall down at any moment onto the unsuspecting feet of anyone playing it, I'm pretty sure it's wearing jorts. I don't know which is worse.

Pucker up.

I've heard of green thumbs, but I don't think I've ever heard of green tongues before. This is like finding spinach in your teeth times a hundred.
