Generally speaking, we try to appreciate people who are going against the grain. Heck, we even come up with expressions for it — like "going against the grain" (see the last sentence) or "thinking outside the box." Sometimes, it's hard to tell when these ideas are good and when they're a little too far outside the norm.

1. The look on the second person's face is all of us right now.

I was already impressed with the whole bunny-on-a-leash thing well before I noticed there was a bird on their head. Now we're just in a whole world of wackiness that I'm not prepared for.

I mean, he could have taken a few extra steps and gone to a store other than Rite Aid, but I don't think I've ever really put that much work into Mother's Day.*

*Fun fact: I am a bad son.

If there's one thing in the world I'm bad at, it's understanding satire. Like that time I tried to open a cannibalism restaurant after reading Jonathan Swift.*

9. Apparently there was a lot of hotel-related content on the internet today. But look! This bathtub fills from the ceiling! How zany is that?!

Is there some kind of practical benefit to this that I'm not understanding? Is this actually just drainage from the roof?

10. "I filled in those potholes like you asked, boss."

At least with the gray bricks, it looks like there was a plan to try and really fill in all the gaps. Once we got to red brick town, all bets were clearly off.

It's embarrassing enough to have to call for a tow. There's no way that this would make anything better.

I've left some things on the stove for too long before, but I've never actually summoned a goopy demon before. Anyone care to hazard a guess as to what went wrong?

16. It's weird to carry around your ultrasound to show off to everybody, but thank goodness you've got the opportunity to squee about your new baby via your...fingernails?
