21 Pics That Have Us Asking 'How?'

How in the world did these situations happen? That's the question that we're looking to answer, and honestly, we probably won't. But at the very least, we'll be able to look at some weird, wacky, and unexpected pictures and memes, and we'll all have a good laugh. Sound good? That's what I thought.

There's drunk, and then there's *drunk*. But I don't know if I've ever been this drunk.

Does anyone have any idea what song he's even talking about? I just assume that this confusion makes more sense to anyone 10 years younger than me and who is actually cool.

I realize the answer to the how of this is "by being athletic," but I'm also wondering how somebody discovers that they have this particular talent.

Also, how far do you think you could take this talent? I'm betting you could get one appearance on "America's Got Talent", and that's about it.

Considering how happy it seems to be being up there, I'm guessing that the pupper put itself up in the tree, but the how and the why are eluding me.

I mean, it could also be that someone just jammed it up there for the photo op, but that seems a bit cruel.

"Oh, sure, I can make that cake for you, but I'll warn you — I'm not very good at faces."

"If I'm being totally honest, I'm not great at bodies, hands, or making cakes, either. In fact, how did you even get this number?"

How do you encounter a fox and not manage to appreciate the situation for all of its majesty?

Then again, foxes are known for being sneaky and crafty, so maybe it's not the person's fault after all.

I'm no arborist (clearly), but something about a tree with apples on it but no leaves is making me pretty uncomfortable.

I'm pretty sure there's some stage of photosynthesis that's missing here, and I don't trust it.

Here's an intense philosophical question for you.

If you got a grape this long would you a) make long wine, b) turn it into the world's saggiest raisin, or c) I dunno, eat it, I guess?

You adopt one flock of wild swans, and all of a sudden, you've got a reputation.

I am curious about what exactly she did to get that name. Maybe it's just someone messing with her, but I'm wondering what she did to deserve that, too.

I've got two hows for this one.

One, how do you go about training a penguin to do your bidding?

And two, how do you train a penguin to go buy fish for you but fail to recognize that you have a trained penguin who can do your fishing for you?

There was a caption that came along with this trying to explain what was happening, saying things like "diffusion force barriers," but I just punched it in the face for being a nerd.

To me, it just looks like someone tried to collect some Infinity Stones.

I'm starting to think that we need to start requiring permits regarding who is and who isn't allowed to decorate cakes.

Like, I know you can take classes, but I'm talking about just straight-up not letting people touch them without a license.

So what you're saying need a babysitter who will pay *you*.

Now, I haven't done the math or anything to see just how this would work out, but it seems to me that this falls pretty heavily into "beggars can't be choosers" territory.

I mean, on footballs, I can understand this, but basketballs?

Twitter | @glanderco

This really makes the NBA seem a lot less fun than it was before. Or do I mean more fun? I guess you get to choose for yourself.

This garage was a little surprised to see what one customer dropped off as their "keys" while their car was in the shop.

Reddit | leftovernoise

I've seen enough carjackings in movies to assume that this must work, but still, lol.


Reddit | notthecarguy

Ever met someone who has all the solutions to their problems right in front of them, but they just can't be bothered to grab 'em?

Frustrating, isn't it? Yeah, I'm talking about you.

I don't know how the cicada landed a sweet McDonald's sponsorship, but Ba da ba ba ba, I'm lovin' it.

Reddit | Tardigradafamilia

Do you think you could eat McDonald's with a cicada staring at you? Who am I kidding? Of course you could.

Believe it or not, this was intentional. Also, it's supposed to be a sun.

Reddit | mattaugustus

And boy oh boy and yikes on bikes, is that ever a look. And how much would it suck to have a sunburn in the shape of a sun?

Not every risk is a bad risk, but this seems an awful lot like a bad risk.

Then again, I have pretty much a 0% chance of matching with pretty much anybody on Tinder, so I don't really get the protocol.

Soeties, life gives you leons, so you decide to just eat the leons because you don't have any sugar on hand to turn it into leonade.

I iagine it ight actually be kind of fun to go back to a second draft of this essay and try to ake it work without the issing letter.

Improvise, overcome, adapt, and also violate a ton of health and safety regulations.

How much do you want to bet at least one of these guys ended up with an unexpected haircut?

When lava flows consumed everything in their path in Hawaii, this house was spared.

Which has to be kind of a dual-edged sword — yeah, your home escaped damage, but do you have a helicopter?

Really, clementines have one job, and that's to grow delicious innards. How does one not even manage to do that?

This glass doesn't even know how to break right.

Reddit | marc-zwiundzwanzig

There is no pattern to this break. It should have shattered, right? But parts of it are still holding on, somehow.

Oh, you know, just a sign post loaded up with acorns.

Reddit | Scoutmac22

Clearly some squirrel has been busy prepping for winter, but it's crazy to think how many trips it must have made to the top of the post to drop them in. Talk about dedication.

That's a...distinctive shape for a bruise.

Finally, someone's out here making jeans for bow-legged cowboys.

You'd think it would have happened by now, what with denim being such an important part of the cowboy aesthetic. But there you go.

The real question here is: How did nobody pick up on this before making it into a plaque?

Reddit | Vhoori

This tree found a unique way to rot.

Reddit | shiningPate

Some might even say 'creepy' because it's giving me the willies for some reason. It's almost like it's melting, not rotting.

Okay, but actually — how did this happen?

DumpaDay | DumpaDay

Wait, I have a theory. It looks like they're actually using two different beaters on there, so they got caught up in each other.

What I'm really surprised by is the fact that the motor didn't burn out before things got this bad.

Apparently, this is what it looks like when you try to land an airplane without disengaging the brakes.

Needless to say, somebody had to buy drinks at the old pilots' lounge that day.

Welp, that could have been worse.

Reddit | that-boy-aint-right

But something tells me Halloween is not a very fun time of year for first responders. Still, what are the odds you get in a crash when you're a full-on bloody Carrie?

This person must be literally the luckiest person in the history of car ownership.

Reddit | AmmianusMarcellinus

It's probably because they've been using the same lucky screwdriver to start their car since they got it.

It'll blend right in with...something.

Reddit | chell0veck

But doesn't the pattern on this pumpkin look like a digital camouflage design? How does nature know how to make that?

Just in case you forget what this animal is, it came pre-labeled.

Reddit | marvin_mumble

Check it out — the pattern in its fur totally spells out "cat." Amazing.
