Most average people stick to the traditional methods when it comes to designing and product placement, but that doesn't apply to everyone. If you've ever come across something that made you scratch your head in wonder, then you're well aware that some people are far from conventional when it comes to getting things done. Keep reading to see some of the best and worst design decisions made by innovative geniuses who somehow successfully put their decisions into the real world.
A Questionable Shipping Mishap Gem
It's possible that someone intentionally covered up the "g" with tape or a sticker for nothing more than a laugh. On the other hand, it could have been a total accident. The shippers might have noticed the altered label and found it just as amusing as you do, or maybe they didn't notice it at all. Regardless of the details, it's nice to add a playful touch to an otherwise mundane world of shipping.
This box was originally supposed to say "glass," which means there was some humorous mishap that occurred at a certain point during the shipping process, and we kind of love it.
A Barcode in the Right or Wrong Place
The misplacement of the barcode on this magazine cover accidentally created an optical illusion of a very tiny mustache that just happened to resemble someone particular. Somehow, there's a hilarious twist here on both power and politics, unless he's simply trying out a new look for his next meeting with world leaders. The image is kind of surreal, and unless he's a fan of old-school Germany, Russia's current leader probably won't approve of this look.
This picture captured an iconic moment of a magazine cover that had the intention of simply featuring Putin's face, but the barcode ended up creating a very comical optical illusion.
Kevin and Lasagna Have a Lot in Common
Kevin Lasagna, the Italian soccer player who's famously known for his agile moves and dynamic shots, happens to have a name that suspiciously sounds like a very delicious Italian dish: lasagna. According to this short biography, Kevin and lasagna have a lot more in common than just a name. Just like the famous pasta dish, he has lots of layers to his game, where lightning-fast moves on the field are almost as good as lasagna's cheesy goodness.
Kevin and lasagna do have a lot of similarities, especially when it comes to layers, and whoever wrote this description about him wasn't afraid to get into the details of it.
Wasps That Truly Love a Good Joke
These wasps were either trying to make a statement about their stinging power by building their nest here, or they couldn't find a more comfortable place. There's truly no better way for a wasp to get a message across than by setting up a home in a spot that would make any human flinch reasonably quickly. One thing that's certain is that this statue and the nest soon became the buzz around town.
Well, it seems like these wasps had a sense of humor when they decided to build their nest in the groin area of a statue. A job well done, indeed.
A Man Praised for His Customer Service Skills
At first, this thank you section sounded like something that came straight out of a scene from a rated- R film and people were kind of shocked. The editors were quick to realize that there was a mistake in the way things sounded here and had to issue an apology alongside a bit of clarification. Next time, they'll certainly keep this newspaper section a bit more simple and more straightforward, just to be safe.
It feels like the women who wrote in this newspaper's section were too enthusiastic in thanking the man who managed to appropriately please all 15 of them for an entire day.
This Branding Fail Turns Into a Naughty Joke
Whatever's happening here is like a jumble word game gone wrong, where a simple work van suddenly has an inappropriately new identity as soon as the door opens. It's not hard to imagine the reactions of people that drive passed this van while the sliding door is wide open since the unintentional message is hard to ignore. Whoever designed this probably should have double-checked the placement of the letters before completing the job.
The clothes and socks van here proudly displays its brand name on the door, but when the door closes, it's quick to reveal a not-so-subtle message to anyone in sight.
Where The Twerk Knight Didn't Rise
From the cape to the pointy ears, a group of soccer fans is standing under a float that looks just like batman doing his best dance move. Thankfully, it's actually just a gopher, but at first, it seems like this picture was all about batman and his iconic costume. Even though this was actually just a giant animal and not an animal-batman hybrid, the illusion is still worth a thousand laughs, in our opinion.
This picture captured a moment that can only be described as a cross between a comic book and wildlife, where Batman and his twerking is somewhere in between the two.
A Fish Naming Gone Very Wrong
After what was likely much deliberation and a fair amount of consideration, kid-like humor probably took over the minds of the scientists who chose the name Dongfish. If you thought that name was a strange choice, its description and features are definitely worse- yet somehow work well with the name. Although it's shape and strange-looking "horngus" truly are rather suggestive, so we can see how all of this came together in the end.
This naming process certainly raised a few eyebrows in both the scientific community and also for us ordinary people. The reasoning could be behind its very strange and generally uncomfortable appearance.
The 800B Doctor Room Dilemma
The numbers on this door are certainly arranged in a peculiar fashion, where the two curvy shapes suspiciously work well with the fact that this is a doctor's office for women's health. It's possible that this number was chosen in a comedic fashion and that the building managers are playing a permanent prank on anyone who walks by. Needless to say, room 800B might be the most requested room in the doctor's office.
This room number, 800B, looks innocent enough at first glance, but patients making their way down the hallway definitely can't help but do a double-take as they approach the door.
Michael Jackson's Ghostly Return
Twitter users are currently left scratching their heads after someone changed Michael Jackson's pronouns on Twitter to he/him. Some would consider this a case of time travel or a glitch in the matrix, while others could say that Jackson has suddenly returned from the grave to make a statement about his personal gender identity. The truth may never be known, but we'll just go with whatever seems the most realistic at the moment- time travel.
Even though the legendary musician passed away over a decade ago, Michael Jackson's pronouns were just recently changed on Twitter- the internet is never going to let this one go.
An Article That Missed the Memo
It's a case of an article title gone rogue- this was supposed to be about the confidence of a woman's independence, but whoever wrote the title ironically missed the point. Here was an article that was persevering against the idea of women being defined by their husbands, yet the title happened to do just that. This might be a classic self-defeating prophecy or a sign that the editor has a questionable sense of humor.
The tone of this article title feels like it came straight out of the 1950s, but the hilarious irony between the content and the title can make any audience chuckle.
A Headline That's Hard to Forget
A man was caught stealing Viagra from a pharmacy, but his lawyer had something to say about the robbery. Yet as any good lawyer does, he was seriously quick to jump to his client's defense. Clearly, the thief needed a bit of extra help in the bedroom and didn't want to spend any cash on making that happen. The words of this lawyer shall remain on the internet indefinitely as the rest of the world continues to erupt in puns.
We're just going to go ahead and say that this headline practically wrote itself, although this man should have "risen" to the occasion and just payed for his bill like everyone else.
Wooden Doorways to Gender Diversity
We're here to confirm that your eyes are, in fact, working, so you can go ahead and believe what you see. The bathroom door on the right happens to have a design that looks like an interesting pattern of a woman's silhouette. The one on left, which happens to be just as majestic, seems to be in the shape of a man. It's like these two bathroom doors open into a world of gender magic.
These two doors are gendered bathrooms that seem to be celebrating diversity by showcasing two very different experiences- whether these patterns were chosen by accident or purpose, we'll never know.
A Vodka Swap Gone Wrong
Once this girl was of drinking age, she asked her dad for a bottle of vodka because she ran out. Unexpectedly, he handed her the same one she switched with water as a sneaky teenager. As a teen, she assumed her dad wouldn't ever notice the scheme, and she could finally fully confirm that he knew absolutely nothing about it.
Unscrewing this cap probably flood your nostrils with the familiar scent of water, so we're guessing that dad never went in to take a whiff since he just assumed it was vodka.
The Work of a Marketing Genius
It looks like someone over at the advertising department at this underwear company was feeling a like a jokester when they chose the placement for this ad. As you can see, it's tucked in between other images that initially seem innocent enough. There isn't anything unusual, except that all of the women in the pictures stare up at the underwear as if it's the greatest thing they've ever seen- truly an epic and bold move.
The company behind this advertisement is either looking to sell underwear or is interested in showcasing women and neck problems since they are all staring up at the same image.
Meme Mountain, Artist's Edition
The creative minds that built these sculptures didn't consider that the way they held them in the image would look a bit off. They clearly worked hard to craft every detail, from the curves to the peaks, until they eventually created what was, in their opinion, perfect. Although they are excited to show off their individual masterpieces here, from our point of view- it looks like they're much too excited about other things.
These two artists were tasked with designing metal plates that resemble the iconic Fuji mountain, yet they didn't really think too hard about what it would look like in the end.
A Printed Proposal With a Point
There truly is nothing more beautiful than a proposal, but things quickly got awkward when this man decided to have a gift for the special moment made. He chose a stunning image of the proposal where he got down on one knee to pop the question. He was excited to pick up the printed version but realized that the photo lab didn't crop out his arm. Now, this has turned into a raunchy piece of artwork that's easy to laugh about.
This is a classic case of a thoughtful gift gone wrong, and to this man's horrors, he'll have much explaining to do to anyone who looks at the printed version.
The Apple Logo Is Now Complete
The chances of capturing the perfect image while your camera app is open are rare- but not impossible because that's precisely what happened here. A woman was innocently standing next to the Apple logo at what looked to be a technology conference, and nothing was out of the ordinary except for the perfect placement. Her body perfectly aligned with the cut-out part of the apple, so much so that it's now basically completed to what some would call perfection.
Apparently, a picture is worth a thousand words, and in our fast-paced age of social media, a funny picture like this one can go viral in a matter of minutes.
This Bakery Offers Hand-On (Cake) Ball Service
If you ever walk into this bakery, the sign hanging in front of their cake balls that are inside of a glass case is bound to catch your eye. In fact, you might even be taken aback before wondering what kind of bakery you stumbled into. Thankfully, the sign is referring to their delicious cake balls, with a staff who are willing to grab them for you so that you won't have to.
It really is nice that this bakery actually offers to handle their customers' dessert balls for them so that they don't have to worry about getting their hands too dirty.
When Attachment Issues Take a Technical Turn
It's possible that this student had a tough week at school since they accidentally took their teacher's e-mail personally and were basically prepared never to face that teacher again. The student thought their teacher was questioning their commitment issues to the course or their entire life in general. Thankfully, that same teacher replied back by clarifying that he was referring to a technical error with the file attachment and nothing more than that.
The e-mail conversation between this professor and a student to a worrying turn when the professor said that the student had "attachment issues" without clarifying exactly what kind of attachment.
Some Hidden Star Wars Humor
At some point in time, there have probably been a group of musicians that have gathered to rehearse this iconic Star Wars song, who then went out to crack a few musicaly inclined jokes about it. Although, we can't blame them because it's hard to ignore the peculiar instructions on the sheet paper. They're just suspiciously close to the actual movie, so it's difficult to believe that this was by chance.
Any non-musicians wouldn't live to see the day of the sheet music for the Star Wars theme song, but those who are msucially inclined couldn't help but laugh at the similarirites.
Where One Letter Literally Says It All
The straightforwardness of this sign could certainly be appreciated, but it might have taken you a moment to understand the reference. Something about this sign simply catches your eye until you realize that the two letters were likely designed with great purpose. If you don't see it, we recommend shifting your angle a bit to let the pure irony shine through. They truly knew what they were advertising, and they executed it perfectly.
Well, the letter "d" in this sign here is certainly doing what it's meant to do and somehow looks awfully close to something else that starts with the same exact letter.
Reporters Couldn't Resist the Rick Roll
We'll never know whether it was intended or not, but it's hard to resist the temptation to laugh at this added touch of humor in this weather broadcast. The hurricane's name alone is funny, but this screenshot of the broadcast's headline has suddenly turned into a parody of the famous internet meme. This is definitely a serious weather update, but with a bit of imagination, it can quickly transform into the classic comedic performance.
Hurricane Rick was certainly rolling through Mexico, and while most people were in utter disbelief of the storm's destruction, others couldn't help but think of the classic Rick Roll meme.
An Exhaust Pipe, Standing Tall and Strong
The guy in the ad is standing tall and proud as an exhaust pipe has clearly been strategically placed in front of him, and the resemblance is just too accurate. Thankfully, the impressive appendage is simply due to the gas pipe and has nothing to do with the magic blue pill that is being advertised here. Although, we're guessing that plenty of people have driven passed this bus and honked in support of the decent view.
Any local driver that spots this ad is undoubtedly in for a surprise after coming across the image on the back of the truck, or they might even be inspired.
A Dangling Holiday Spectacular
What was supposed to be glorious illuminations and a bit of holiday spirit unintentionally became an ode to the male anatomy, and it didn't go unnoticed by anyone around town. The lights here are certainly bright, but it's safe to assume that the laughter will be even louder for quite some time. Christmas candles might never look the same again as the holiday spirit in this town has turned into a questionable wonderland.
The residents that live here definitely love walking down this streets and admiring the beautiful twinkling lights during the holiday season, but this year, things accidentally got a bit phallic.
Sirenis' Unintended Rated-R Makeover
During their vacation in Sirenis, this family gathered in front of the majestic city sign, either blissfully unaware or strategically positined in front of it. To their sudden surprise, the final snapshot reveals an amusing transformation that is officially hard to ignore for reasons we don't need to explain. This image might be the new talk of the town, but one thing's for sure- it's become a viral internet sensation.
Well, this was either a random accident that is something to laugh about in the future, or this family is keen on turning innocent vacation photos into particularly unforgettable keepsakes.
A Choice Between Tickets or Buns
Along with the whole internet, the misplaced pole on this sign has sparked both laughs and double-takes from even the most serious drivers. Although the pole's placement was unintentional, it's certainly now reached its claim to fame, and we're guessing people have traveled wide and far just to find it. Typical signage is simply boring, but this one took things to a whole new level, so this sign is worth every glance it's ever gotten.
Thanks to the misplaced pole, commuters are not greeted by a bold message that reads something completely different than it was initially supposed to, an ordinary transit turned comedy goldmine.
Science Student's True Geological Wonder
The award in this picture was intended to look like two hands peeling away layers of the earth's crust, but it seems like someone forgot to double-check the image before giging the go-ahead. This prize appears to take on a more intimate appearance and looks much too similar to something that involves a different kind of science. Whoever made this was definitely leaning toward a geology-themed masterpiece, but that certainly didn't work out.
This science award winner and her trophy are truly going to officially be the new talk of the academic world alongside just about every dark meme corner of the internet.
A Funny Postman's Innocent Request
Not only is this mailman good at delivering packages, but he also happens to be even better with his wordplay. When he's out delivering mail, chances are, he's giving everyone around town a good laugh. Although he was definitely just promoting a tidier mailbox, the note was just too funny to ignore. After getting this letter, the homeowner certainly went out to trim those hedges for the next time the mailman arrives.
This mailman's comedic masterpiece? An innocent note politely asking someone to trim their bush so that their (mail) box could be reached without a struggle on the delivery man's part.
Terry's Excavating Digs Deep Into Comedy
Terry's Excavating is a name you're never going to forget, especially after reading this slogan that's printed onto a truck. They dig deep into both holes and funny bones while making you laugh as they handle your dirties needs. Those needs are holes in the ground, of course. The owner of this company is definitely talented in the world of laughter and surely fills the mundane world of construction with a touch of comedy.
Introducing Terry's Excavating, a laugh-inducing construction crew that digs their way into the holes and hearts of the customers- great for getting holes filled with a side of laughter.
A Town's True Aerial Amusement
When viewed from the sky, this town's layout looks much too similar to something known all too well. In fact, the resemblance is striking, and all the credit goes to those cul-de-sacs that are in perfect formation. Chances are, the people who are actually living there are yet to know that this is what their street looks like unless they've stumbled across it on the internet. Or, the residents embrace this unique layout and even kind of love it.
We do think it's safe to say that this little town has erected quite a reputation online for its wonderous street layout that can only be noticed from up above.
The Newest Breakfast Sensation
This unintentional curse word has officially changed the world of breakfast cereal after a store worker covered up the letter "I" on every single box with a coupon sticker. Of course, this was done to all of the boxes on the shelf and not just one. We'd certainly consider this one a crunchy catastrophe, but the chance of someone actually doing this intentionally is high- and even hard to resist.
The Pick Me Up cereal boxes in this supermarket are now officially flipping mornings off after someone definitely chose to put these tiny coupon stickers in a very specific place.
Pen Punctuation Gone Entirely Wrong
The pen to this electronic checkout system was broken, but the pen that wrote this message malfunctioned was simply writing to the best of its ability. The faulty pen is easy to forget after reading this; in fact, it doesn't even matter at all because this is comedy gold. Sometimes, the best accidents are the funniest ones, and although not all miscommunications are laughable, this perfectly timed typo will never be forgotten.
Imagine scribbling a desperate message to let every customer know that the pen is broken, only to realize you've accidentally written something entirely different. Then, your miscommunication spreads like wildfire.
Affordable yet Naughty-Looking Veggies
Cucumbers and their suggestive shapes can be perceived in lots of different ways, but this sign seems to make them look extra special- so much so that they're hard to resist. Of course, the great part about it is the price, which just happens to be 69 cents. This veggie vendor isn't afraid to showcase the fact that their cucumbers are frisky and that every customer should go ahead and buy them.
Who knew that affordability could be so tasty but also this funny? Retail experiences can surely get raunchy, depending on the store, but a supermarket is surely an unexpected place.
A Touchdown in All the Wrong Ways
We're introducing just one of American football's most awkward moments because a million pictures are taken at games that look just like this. The two pros were tangled up in a pose that took touchdowns to a whole new level, one that these two definitely had no interest in exploring together while on the field. Sports can get both tense and serious, so this iconic moment was shared only to lighten the general mood.
These two professional athletes tackled each other, as football players do, but a camera happened to capture the exact moment that looked the most awkward. Sometimes, timing really is everything.
Privacy and Laughter Made for Moms
Moms enjoy their privacy in public when it comes to breastfeeding, and the code that's hanging from this door makes it accessible to basically everyone. Also, the password can't really be considered unique based on the shape of the meticulously chosen numbers. There was clearly a mastermind behind the pun-based digits that need to punched in, but any mom who gets the joke is certainly in for a giggle or two before feeding their little one.
Whoever chose this very unique code is passionate about motherhood or truly just loves a good laugh when they're not busy writing signs that go on public breast feeding stations.
Santa's Good Little Helpers
"Ho, ho, ho" takes a whole new meaning here, where Christmas has suddenly gotten a lot more strange if you choose to look at it that way. Most of us would see this as a cute Christmas decoration, while others are pretty sure that these signs were strategically placed underneath all of these family portraits. The culprit's motto? Keeping the holiday season a little bit naughty so that the nice is extra special.
Christmas took a dark turn in this family home, where it seems like the decorations sitting under each of these girls' portrait is more of an insult than something jolly.
Grandma's Muffin Is the Best in Town
According to this proud grandma, her muffins quickly charm the tastebuds of men and even make them weak in their knees, all due to that baked-good goodness. There really is nothing better than a delicious muffin made from a classic family recipe taking over your tastebuds. Truly, this sign is a legendary one, and the words of this grandma shall never be forgotten for as long as the ad stands tall at a bus stop.
The grandma is certainly proud of her magical muffins, where the scent of her delicious baked good has men driving from miles away because they're just too hard to resist.
A Church for the Bad People
This is a church of holy typos, where a simple cross in the name has made everything ten times more awkward than it ever needed to be. At first glance, this place of worship looks just like any other, but the longer you look at the sign- the worse it gets. The only kind of visitors this church is drawing in are ones that enjoy a good laugh and a selfie or two before praying.
If you're a nice, holy person, you might want to go to the church farther down the street from this one, but if you don't believe in bad omens, walk right in.
This Kind Gesture Took a Wrong Turn
This just might be the funniest optical illusion in this town, where a simple offer for free glasses cleaning turned into something completely different. Of course, it's the thought that counts, but there's no doubt that some people have walked in here requesting a different kind of cleaning based on what they read outside. It might be time for this place to move the sign a bit so that things can be read more clearly.
Thankfully, the kind staff inside would much prefer to clean your glasses as opposed to anything else that you might be thinking after reading this odd yet very specific sign.
