20 People Who Took A Joke And Ran With It Like A Bear Was Chasing Them

If there's one thing that tends to bring people together, it's humor. Even if you're having a pretty bad day, a good joke can make you feel a little bit better.

When it comes to these jokesters, they really did the most in bringing these jokes to life. They saw their opportunities and took them. And then ran with them.

"Told my boyfriend I was getting him a burger for Christmas."

Several presents stacked on top of one another. Each present is wrapped with paper that's designed to look like a different part of a burger; bun, tomato, cheese, beef, and lettuce.
reddit | Ao-Eleni

I mean, technically OP didn't lie. Of course, this is definitely one burger I wouldn't be trying to eat, but maybe that's just me.

"When my wife had an ultrasound for our first child I took a photo of the print out so she could send to friends and family on what’s app."

An ultrasound image of a pregnancy that's been edited to have a Xenomorph from Predator instead of a fetus.
reddit | WKFClark

"Instead I sent her this Xenomorph image and she sent it to everyone before realizing what it was. She was not amused."

I'm not gonna lie, I probably wouldn't have noticed the difference at first.

"Renovating the house, decided to put this in the wall before it's boarded up so I can give the next person who renovates the house a heart attack."

A skeleton decoration dressed in a torn jersey, sitting on a chair with a newspaper, inside a recess in a wall.
reddit | BugsyShort

The worst part about this prank is that OP probably won't be around for the payoff. Still, I can't help but appreciate the dedication.

"Seems our local Burger King keeps most of the condiments on the top shelves."

A Burger King drive thru window. A printed sign on the window states the restaurant will be closed early due to short staff.
reddit | thelowflyingowl

See, if I saw that sign, I'd probably just grumble and go to McDonald's or something. But this person saw the joke in there, and made it.

"The bird will not give you your finger back."

A sign on a cage that reads, "You need your finger to pick your nose so don't put it in my cage. I will not let go."
reddit | WaxingWaterWolf

I guess this bird has had enough incidents that they had to put a sign up. No reason why they couldn't add a little humor, though. Maybe people will even take it seriously!

"My grandma wanted some 'creative' grad photos of my friend since we’re graduating at the same time. This was her least favorite."

Two guys standing in a field. One guy has his shirt lifted above his belly button, while the other has his hands on the first guy's gut. Text next to them reads, "We're expecting... to graduate."
reddit | Toll_House69

Hey, you ask for creative, you're going to get creative. I have to hand it to these guys for their super out of the box thinking.

"I figured out you don’t actually have to assemble these things."

An alarm clock and lamp, both placed on top of a box containing a side table.
reddit | ImWadeYo

File this image under "things that are technically true." Like, sure, this'll work. As long as you weren't planning on using any of the drawers in the table.

"Our baby announcement photo."

A woman standing next to a hospital bed, in which a man in a hospital gown is laying, holding a newborn baby.
reddit | tyleryoungblood

"My wife looked so obnoxiously thin 24 hours after delivery that I joked I looked like the one who had just delivered. So we decided to swap for a funny photo."

I'm not gonna lie, this is pretty incredible.

"So inspiring."

Several flight attendants on a plane, surrounding a man who's wearing a pink sash, long gloves, and a tiara. The sash reads, "didn't stand up when plane landed."
reddit | youyouxue

The fact that the flight attendants were in on the joke just shows they're as tired of people clapping when the plane lands as the rest of us. On the plus side, we got an insanely funny picture out of it.

"Thankful to this unknown man for striking a pose and for not messing with my camera set up after he stumbled upon it."

Two images of the same fallen tree trunk covered in moss. One features a man posing on the trunk, while the other features a bobcat.
reddit | burningxjeff

"Also added, a bobcat using the log just a couple weeks prior."

I guess that's a popular spot.

"This Amazon review."

An Amazon review for a large beach ball that gives it 2 stars, accompanied by a story about how they lost the ball and assume it's still rolling around out there.
reddit | mas1234

For the most part, Amazon reviews really aren't that helpful. This review also isn't helpful, but it's at least really funny. Whether it's a true story or totally made up (or embellished for dramatic/comedic effect), the effect is the same.

"My daughter won our town's 'Name the Street Sweeper' contest."

A street sweeper, whose name is "Sweeping Beauty."
reddit | LordRupertEverton84

This girl knew her audience. Obviously, people loved that name (or else they probably wouldn't have voted for it). And it's way better than something like "Sweepy McSweeperface."

"This definitely caught me off guard."

An author's warning in a book, that states that the book actually starts in the middle.
reddit | maestertargaryen

I guess if you don't love reading, this is probably the book for you. And if you do love reading, then you might still have some fun with this one. After all, a book is a book. Maybe.

Choose your side.

Two people dressed in costumes; one as a yogurt cup with a sign that says "pro biotics," and the other one as a pill bottle with a sign that says "anti biotics."
reddit | hilernoth*****

I guess these people got tired of the fact that probiotic and antibiotic both deal with bacteria, but one is good and the other is bad? Man, just writing that out has me all confused.

"Things are getting serious at work."

A threatening letter about kidnapped tupperware, next to a sign about missing tupperware.
reddit | skiprecon777

I love how specific the instructions are, all for a Tupperware container. Like, I get that it's the principle of the matter, but maybe just buy a new one.

Or, go to that McDonald's and await further instructions...

"My Dad had eye surgery and my mom asked where he wanted to go for lunch after, so here we are."

A man dressed in a Long John Silver's pirate hat, while also wearing an eyepatch.
reddit | McWitt

If you have to wear an eyepatch for any reason, it's just a slippery slope to becoming a pirate. Being a fake pirate with a Long John Silver's hat totally counts, by the way.

"Salad Cookies."

Slices of English cucumber on a plate. A sign on top of them reads, "salad cookies."
reddit | goudadaysir

I mean, that's definitely one way to trick people into eating their vegetables. Though, I'm not sure how many people would actually be tricked into thinking cucumber slices were salad cookies. Funny enough, this is really making me crave cucumbers.

"These people who set up a tent at an art fair."

Several elderly people sitting around an outdoor table below a sign that reads, "Old coots giving advice. It's probably bad advice, but it's free."
reddit | heputmystuffinjello

Hey, at least they were being honest. And bad advice might not be what everyone needs, but it's free. And that has to count for something (or maybe it doesn't).

"I saw this amazing person at Steel City Con yesterday. A Man-DeLorean."

A person dressed up in a costume that's a hybrid DeLorean (car) and Mandalorian.
reddit | CraisyDaisy

There are, like, so many layers of both geekdom and comedy that have gone into this costume. I, for one, love puns, no matter how nerdy they are, so this is a total win.

"This embroidery I made is dedicated to all hot shower lovers."

An embroidery image of a bathtub on fire, accompanied by text that reads, "I take super hot showers to practice burning in hell."
reddit | rebordacao

I feel personally called out by this embroidery piece, and I'm not even mad. If hell is the price to pay for taking hot showers, it's worth it.
