16 People Who Flew Free As Birds

Diply 13 Apr 2018

In case we haven't made it obvious, we're pretty big on freedom around here. And as great as it would be to legally stop your uncle from posting his daily oatmeal pic, that would go against our rights as Americans to have the freedom to express ourselves.

So whether these people had good ideas or not, today we celebrate their freedom to pursue them. Well, that and the fact that somebody caught them on camera.

Now, that's just Yankee Doodle dandy.

1. Honestly, just remembering to look up gives her the right to ask for this awesome sun glare photo.

Seriously, think about how often you look straight up every day. That's how a guy dressed as a bright blue and red spider keeps sneaking up on people.

2. OK, OK, as much as it might make your mind scream in terror, I would ask that you don't kill this strange car with fire.

That baby seems to love it, and taking nightmarish candy from a worryingly happy baby is not what I'm about.

3. I can't imagine someone doing this on a good day, but we all deal with life's ups and downs in our own ways.

Besides, if we were gonna be like those health nuts and use water, we wouldn't be eating this stuff in the first place.

4. Sometimes, in order to be truly free, you have to cage yourself.

Actually, I think it's just this one specific time where what I just said makes any sense at all. I probably shouldn't try to put that in a fortune cookie.

5. Hmm, I'm pretty sure that ordering "extra wet" wings would normally just make the server stare at you uncomfortably, but I'm glad it worked out.

I think the waitress worded it that way herself just so she could say this. We'll let her have this stretch.

6. There may be rules against wearing hats and chewing gum in class, but there's nothing about sitting in solemn reflection under your chair.

And I'm sorry to disappoint, but Air Bud probably did make them create a rule against dogs playing on the school basketball team.

7. Is anyone truly free until someone inspires them to give up the trap?

I'm precisely the wrong person to answer that one, but I hope some street philosopher can fill us in. My idea of a trap-house is an airport with improper signage.

8. You can order whatever pizza you want, but it gets hard when that involves making the chefs go against their principles.

Shout-out for doing the honorable thing and giving them their money back, though. It's the service equivalent of "it's not you, it's me."

9. I love the "I might be wrong" here so much. Like, he wouldn't want to hurt their feelings if they meant to send this.

Instagram | @will_ent

The last thing he wants is a heartbroken message from the company saying, "But we thought you'd look really pretty in it."

10. I don't know how the motorcycle is supposed to eat this either, but that's the customer's business as long as they paid for both meals.

Reddit | CosmicKeys

I hope the rider actually revved the engine a little bit like the bike made an order, though.

11. Is this some kind of freedom van? It's entirely possible that the driver just thinks eagles are neat.

Reddit | LegendaryKirkFogg

Were they trying to make people feel guilty for being mad whenever an eagle falls off?

12. Well, where is it written that wieners, s'mores, and marshmallows are the only things you're allowed to roast over a fire?

Instagram | @streetcatto

I mean, it's up to this person to worry about the part where the banana inevitably breaks off and falls into the fire.

13. So apparently, this family hoped their strange fashion choices would embarrass their daughter at the airport.

And if you're trying to say they couldn't decide on whether to be hippies, Canadian rednecks, or fancy ladies, I remind you that they didn't have to.

14. I don't know what this kid is trying to accomplish here. He probably won't be so happy when his hat gives him splinters.

Reddit | Seawood_

But I would argue that part of growing up is learning unpleasant truths like that on your own.

15. People probably expect something more active than this when they ask what we did on the weekend, but it's up to us how we spend our free time.

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

Don't try to tell me that you haven't had a few that went pretty much like this.

16. If I put all this work into making this scrapyard mobile, I'd probably flex with it too.

And this guy definitely doesn't have to worry about haters saying it's fake. I don't know if it's a car, per se, but it's definitely there.
