24 Funny Pics No One Ever Saw Coming

You know how a joke's great when you hear it for the first time, but then it kind of wears out its welcome soon after that? I think we all have at least one relative who doesn't know that, but this isn't about them.

Instead, this is about the power of the unexpected. And that's what I'm hoping these pics are, because they won't work as well if you see them coming.

1. I can't argue with the results, but I feel like there was a missed opportunity here.

Instead, they should have said the statue is alive so the kid will get weirded out every time he sees it.

I think that idea just made me an uncle.

2. Based on everyone else's reactions, I feel like the wife is gonna say, "See? This is the kind of thing I'm talking about."

My favorite is the other lady, though. We can almost pinpoint the moment where she realizes this is really happening.

3. Ouch. If this dude was gonna lie anyway, why not give the homie the earbuds as is?

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

Like, does he have some kind of master plan for two random, equally useless headphone wires or something? Is this some elaborate revenge plan?

What's his damage?

4. I stand with this girl because there's no way the explanation for why she can't do this was good enough.

Even if the food smell was distracting kids, my answer would be something like, "Don't worry, it'll be gone soon."

5. For as crafty as cats can be, they apparently don't have the whole "don't look suspicious" thing down.

Instagram | @will_ent

I suppose only a human can casually plant themselves near the cinnamon rolls and make one disappear without changing their expression.

6. Unless this person also got a time machine for Christmas, I think this is now a bookmark.

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

I think that little disclaimer at the bottom can just be shortened to "card has no value." Call it a hunch.

7. I don't know...Somehow, overstaying your vacation feels better than this wasteland between Christmas and New Years.

Plus, the vacation involves keeping yourself in a place where it's warm enough to meet all sorts of grumpy turtles.

I think we can call that a checkmate.

8. I don't think it takes a lot of brain power to figure out this guy's next present.

Instagram | @kalesalad

Bonus points if the niece ends up riding that one all day as soon as he gets it. That won't even be because she wants revenge.

It's just nature.

9. I like how even the dog doesn't seem to understand why it's doing this. 

Instagram | @kalesalad

The look it's giving us seems to say, "I guess this is my life now. Everyone just has to be my chair for some reason."

10. Yeah, you know. Without the sign, this is just your average heavily armored vehicle.

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

You'd think the fact that it's blue would give it away, but the postal service is just getting really serious about mail fraud now.

11. I love the album too, but yeah, those dials are kind of twisting my melon.

Instagram | @will_ent

Like, the pictures next to the knobs make sense in the car, but I keep expecting one to say "spin cycle" or something.

12. You know, the way this has turned out has got me thinking.

Instagram | @wot_u_sayin_tho

When people got hungover, did Jesus turn the wine back into water to help them deal? Oh wait, he probably just touched them or something and made it go away.

Sorry, stupid question.

13. I don't really need any help looking taller, but I still think these tips are useful.

Instagram | Instagram

I'd obviously hover ominously everywhere I went if I could, but I'm definitely gonna say "Am big boy!" whenever I want to make an entrance now.

14. We know The Simpsons has a way of predicting the future, but what if I told you it goes deeper than foreseeing presidents?

Instagram | @wot_u_sayin_tho

Yes, it seems that even in-universe, the show can't stop making eerily accurate predictions.

They didn't forget to take that out, it's a sign.

15. Yeah, the business of combat is brutal enough without so many crude references to each others' moms.

instagram | @x__antisocial_butterfly__x

Honestly, I expected a little more decorum out of xxxBadazzSnipah69xxx. He could learn a lot from more gentlemanly conduct like this.

16. If that is what this case is about, I'm not surprised that Amy Schumer wanted to see this go down.

Instagram | Instagram

Who wouldn't love to watch Judge Judy struggle to understand what Yu-Gi-Oh! cards are and why anybody would care about them?

17. No matter how scary and abrupt the world's changes can be, at least we can rest easy knowing this will always live on.

Instagram | @mememang

I guess when something doesn't really mean anything to begin with, nobody really bothers to get rid of it.

18. Haha, the doggo looks super disappointed that it doesn't get to ride in the truck anymore.

Instagram | @x__antisocial_butterfly__x

Especially since it still probably didn't get a cookie out of the deal. It's like when I had to leave the arcade as a kid.

19. The way things are going, I guess that selling an outfit designed for those "why am I like this" moments is a pretty smart move.

Instagram | @girlsthinkimfunny

Personally, I'm holding out for the "stumbles into work despite desperately wanting to stay in bed" collection.

20. I have a feeling that "yup, and you're looking at it" wouldn't make things any clearer for this woman.

Instagram | Instagram

At least she's right that what's happening here definitely qualifies as goals. Just not for the reason she thinks.

21. Yes, yes, I know there's actually nothing ironic about this. Let's not let that get in the way of its majesty.

Instagram | @will_ent

Especially since I'm not entirely convinced the photographer didn't just kick this over themselves so they could get the photo.

22. Even at my most rebellious, I don't think this is a command I would have a hard time following.

Twitter | @WORLDSTAR

Plugging this in feels like playing Operation, except that instead of buzzing a little, the game just burns your house down when you lose.

23. Unless this hair extension came with the package, I'm having a hard time figuring out what's going on here.

Instagram | @sciexpatmasyas1

I figured that it just got caught in the car door, but that means the package is totally irrelevant.

Is it? Help.

24. On the bright side, it's entirely possible that this girl just started a makeup trend.

Instagram | @tinpun

You might give me a look, but all she needs to do is call it "phantom contouring" or something and she'll probably have a gaggle of followers.
