30 Hilarious Pics That Don't Require Much Context To Be Funny

Everyone loves a good funny story. They uplift the spirits of everyone around them and can immediately make someone's day.

That being said, not every laugh has to come from a full-blown story. Sometimes, there are simpler, faster methods of getting a chuckle out of your friends. Take this list for example. These are some hilarious pics that don't require much context to be funny!

"As do we all."

Where did we, as individual people, all learn to do this? It's not like this behavior is taught in schools or something, so what was urges us all to point out cows when we see them?

Is it some sort of primal instincts? Were our ancestors once very vigilant about cows?

"Clever signage."

This isn't the type of panic buying that you hoard in your home, though. You consume it all right then and there so you have the strength and mental fortitude to deal with the upcoming shortage instead.

"I looked over, and my cat was doing the same thing as the curtain."

Down to the blue on the lower half and everything. They say art imitates life, but here it looks like the opposite might be true.

Are you sure your cat doesn't have a history in modeling? Maybe they were they original inspiration for that piece.

"Just moved in and bought this sign…finally feels like home."

What truly makes a house into a home is the ability to tell people to get off your property. You just don't get the same sense of satisfaction if you do it in a rental, there's no feeling of authority and power.

"He woke up and started to get off the couch then went back to sleeping like this..."

What, you've never had a morning like this? Where you wake up and immediately know that today is not your day, so you let sleep take over you once again, no matter if you were still laying down or now? I know I have.

"This plumber's rates."

This is my dream, honestly. I never know what to do when I have other people in my house, unsure if I should stick around and try to talk to them or just let them do their thing. With this, that worry is gone!

"I thought that my cat had disappeared from our sunroom. Then I opened a can of food and this happened..."

Ah, the siren call for cats everywhere, the sound of their food being opened. Your cat could run away from home and be miles from you and still come bolting back the second you crack open a can of their food or crinkle a bag of their treats.

"He was just trying to take a nap."

He looks so upset, but reserved about it. "No, no I'm not mad, She's just a kid and it was an accident. It's still annoying that I need a bath now but I won't bark at her. I won't. I swear."

"Future me is gonna have a heart attack when he opens up the attic."

Then future-future you will laugh about it afterwards, close the attic once more, and let the cycle happen again. As long as your memory is poor enough, this little joke with yourself can go on forever and always be funny!

"The plan was simple. (1) Set the camera timer. (2) Join my wife in the hammock."

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. This picture is definitely saying a few thousand words on its own, though most of that could probably be boiled down to "ouch," and "what did you do?"

"Engineering 101."

Because getting the elevator repaired is overrated, right? In fact, even if they did get it fixed, it'd just break again later that week. Might as well embrace all the flaws, and accept this elevator for what it is (broken).

"I spent 5 minutes trying to figure out who Tom is, and what his onion picking skills have to do with my sandwich."

Even if it wasn't a list of your toppings, what's wrong with them specially requesting that Tom chooses your onions? Maybe he's the resident onion connoisseur and will really pick the onions that elevate your sandwich the most. Wouldn't you want that?

"Our 4 year old set this up while I was in the bathroom and then proudly announced that I was trapped."

How cruel! Your child has locked you away! Your only hope now is that your spouse sets you free, or perhaps you can plead to your kid and try to get in their good graces, get them to show you mercy so you can taste freedom again!

"We're getting a new kitchen countertop soon. Making sandwiches will be easier."

Yeah, but an invisible sandwich sounds like a really fun idea. In fact, it sounds like it could be a whole novel turned thriller movie. The Invisible Sandwich is coming to a theater (and counter) near you this summer.

"Thanks, but no. Just no."

You know, as much as I love getting freebies, I think I'd have to pass on this one. Considering the fact that those raisins are barely bigger than the thumbtacks that are holding them up, there doesn't seem to be that much to take. The "donation" jar also wasn't lost on me.

"My sisters dogs started barking and then her cat did this..."

She's just on patrol. If I lived in a house with a four-legged beast four times my size and heard it making noise, I'd also want to look around and make sure it wasn't coming my way to turn its ire against me.

"My dog hanging out in the exact spot we tried to keep her out of."

Dogs are very smart, but they're also very not smart. They'll look at a barricade like this and think to themselves, "Oh, that's weird, I wonder who put this here. That's okay, I can still get around it," not understanding that the goal was to keep them out.

"Contrary to popular belief. Duct Tape does not fix EVERY problem."

Here's hoping we never have another toilet paper shortage again. If we do, though, there are plenty of alternatives we could use. Not duct tape, though. Never duct tape. I don't even want to imagine trying to use that to wipe.

"Spotted this sign in the local indie camera shop in Leeds, West Yorkshire."

I'm sure there are plenty of lines that retail workers are sick of hearing. "Did you know you were out of X?" is probably one of them. I'm betting most workers with they could be like this independent camera store and ban annoying customers for life.

"I got a timed feeder for my cat to try to help him lose weight. He sleeps like this now."

Just like there's nothing wrong with people who are food motivated, there's nothing wrong with cats that are food motivated also. Cats just have less daily requirements that pull them away from their food source, while us humans have to go to our jobs and other lame things like that.

"You had one job."

Why do I have the sinking suspicion that whoever put that sign on the computer did it after it was already turned off? I mean, it wouldn't matter either way; it's kind of too late to go back now anyway.

"Wtf is going on with this pack of salmon in my parents fridge that necessitated a full-shelf quarantine?"

This must be some extra special salmon. It must be the crème-de-la-crème of salmon. It must be the rarest, most expensive, most amazing salmon in the world, and because it's so incredible, it has to be isolated on its own shelf so that nothing else can ruin it.

"She said 'we don't need a cart, I'm just getting one thing'. Nothing in her hands is that one thing..."

Not only was she a fool for thinking she could escape with just the one item she came in for, but she's not even effectively carrying what she did grab! Stack those black bins, put everything else in them, and no longer feel a fool!

"Turns out I’m a MILF."

This is, erm, not the definition of MILF I've come to know, but I think I like this one better. I don't think I'd be able to get away with calling myself one in public without getting a lot of weird looks, though.

"I feel like they just have a big coloured wheel of random items and spin it for new scents."

There are a lot of amazing smells out there, like cookies and the scent of a brand new pair of shoes. But that doesn't mean we should be smelling like them. Imagine a new car smell bodywash. Okay, bad example because I'd probably buy that one.

"These jerks cut us off, then had the audacity to honk at US!"

Eugh, geese these days! There's not even a crosswalk there. Sure, pedestrians have the right of way, but that doesn't mean they can just do what they want and cut across the street like this. So annoying.

"I put googly eyes on my VR glasses and let my grandparents try them out."

There's nothing that quite expresses emotions like fear, curiosity, and excitement all at once like googly eyes does. I'm surprised VR headsets don't come with them already pre-attached. Clearly they elevate the experience of using them, and watching other people use them!

"This bird, casually inspecting the bird seed stock in Costco."

He's shopping, duh. Do you not check out the lineup of goods before selecting the one you think will give you a satisfactory price to quality ratio before you purchase it? Or do you sprint in, grab the first of whatever you need, and sprint back out?

"Sir, I'm pretty sure this is just a domestic flight."

We're not one-hundred percent sure, though, and in cases like this is't best to be prepared just in case. You wouldn't want to be caught in space without a helmet, would you? That'd be pretty embarrassing.

"We were hiking and my sister said 'there’s a monster in the shadows."

Now that's a monster that will really keep you up at night (depending on your time of consumption) and startle you awake in the morning. Few things can strike such fear, or concentrated caffeine, into peoples' hearts.
