75 Times People Took Posing With Sculptures To Another Level

Published

on

We all get to enjoy some of the most beautiful sculptures in the world. From the Great Sphinx of Giza to the Pieta to the Venus de Milo, these sculptures have stood for hundreds or thousands of years for more reasons than one. For instance, they’re made of stone so they can withstand anything! We just can’t get enough of them.

Of course, just because they’re beautiful doesn’t mean we’re not going to goof around with them. Who can resist the opportunity to pose with a statue, especially if they can find a clever way of inserting themselves into the work of art?

As for what the artists would think, there’s no way we’ll ever know. With any luck, if Michelangelo saw the number of tourists who have pinched David’s backside, he’d get a chuckle out of it.

And of course, goofing around with statues doesn’t mean we’re not appreciating them. You could even make an argument that by interacting with them, we’re lending new life to art.

If you don’t want to get so deep, there’s a simpler reason — it’s pretty funny. Here are 75 people whose statue game is on point.

1. This sweet toddler helping out

This sweet little guy saw the bunnies trying to get their friend up, so he ran over to lend a hand. Or maybe he’s trying to steal it. But still, so sweet, right?

2. He’s cute, but he’s a bully

Save

Kids these days have no respect for their elders! They’re out in public without any clothes on, beating up innocent passersby. What’s going to happen to the next generation?

3. Doing a favor for a Founding Father

Save

Even a fancy man from the 1700s needed a loan at times. This helpful guy decided to slip him some money. What a good person!

4. Even statues have to groom

Save
Source: Reddit

Really? You just had to shave your armpits right there in the middle of the parking lot? Seriously, Dave, people are starting to stare.

5. All the single ladies

Save
Source: Reddit

Sometimes, statues predict trends years ahead of their time. Clearly, this handsome fellow was looking to the future and decided to perfect his Single Ladies routine long before the age of Beyoncé.

6. Taking advantage of the distraction

Save

They say you should never leave your luggage unattended and this guy is living proof. He’s taking advantage of a hug to run off with the poor man’s suitcase!

7. Daddy’s new girlfriend

Save

Just look at this shameless woman, getting in between a father and his child. She’ll be shipping her off to boarding school in Switzerland before you know it.

8. Ode to Divorce

Save
Source: Reddit

Custody battles are difficult, but who knew they could be made into such compelling pieces of art? To be fair, Mom looks like she’s got a couple of feet on Dad, so maybe she’ll win.

9. “What have I done?!”

Save
Source: Reddit

This bear sculpture offered a perfect opportunity to stage a dramatic tableau. Doesn’t he look like he could be in a Shakespeare play — maybe like The Winter’s Tale’s Exit, pursued by a bear”?

10. There’s nothing like a selfie with your idol

Save

Source: Instagram

Mark Twain died long before the invention of the cell phone, but we like to think if he’d known about them, he would have been game for a selfie. Maybe with a cigar in one hand and a kitten in the other.

11. What a rude statue!

Save

Source: Reddit

Some statues get a little too handsy with passersby, especially the ladies, if you know what we mean. Whoever made this sculpture had to see the opportunity to stage this, right?

12. Awwwwww

Save

Source: Bored Panda

Babies are completely open, full of affection that isn’t spoiled by societal expectations. This sweet little girl saw a boy her age and planted a kiss on him.

13. “Can you tell me where the gift shop is?”

Save

Source: Bored Panda

Finding your way around a museum can be tough, especially if you’re a statue who’s never moved from one place. Maybe you should go try the neighboring exhibit.

14. “Come on honey, give me another chance”

Save

Source: Bored Panda

This classy lady is probably supposed to be admiring the beautiful view, but it does look a bit like she’s throwing a tantrum. One tourist saw his chance and grabbed it.

15. A brave little snowman

Save

Source: Reddit

It’s always tough to stand up to bullies! But this brave snowman is setting an example for us all. Of course, it helps to have a sword and shield.

16. “You’re coming home right now, young man”

Save

Source: Imgur

It’s so embarrassing when your parents take you away from your friends. It’s usually best to go quietly so you can maintain some dignity, as opposed to getting dragged away by your ankle.

17. The Birds 2.0

Save

Source: Bored Panda

Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds came out in 1963 and terrified multiple generations. Who doesn’t look at a giant pigeon statue and wonder if it doesn’t have murder on its mind?

18. Hey, no cuts!

Save

Source: Facebook

Some people will do anything to cut in line! Just look at this cute but sneaky little fellow in China who decided to pull a fast one on us by stepping in front of the other kids.

19. This statue is a popular one

Save

Source: Reddit

This cute statue of a mother swinging her child around is pretty sweet, but it’s also an easy target for tourists who all come up with their own unique way of playing around with it.

20. A Domino effect

Save

Source: Reddit

What kind of person trips a child to watch a bunch of kids fall down? Apparently, this guy, judging by the enormous grin on his face.

21. The hammer seems excessive

Save

Source: Bored Panda

Many parents are divided on the subject of physical punishment, with many families now opting not to spank their kids. Can we all at least agree that a hammer is excessive?

22. Two at one blow

Save

Plenty of people are known for exaggerating their physical prowess but this guy has photographic proof. He can really take out two bowler-hat-wearing businessmen with one ninja kick.

23. When online dating isn’t working out

Save

Some people get really desperate after hearing “There’s plenty of fish in the sea” one too many times. Hopefully, most of us aren’t quite THIS desperate.

24. When there’s juicy gossip going around the office

Save

Source: Bored Panda

Sculptures like these just make it all too easy. You get the feeling the museum sets them up so that hundreds of tourists can take the exact same picture.

25. “Please stop hitting me!”

Save

Source: Bored Panda

Most people don’t exactly see clowns in a positive light. After the weird clown attacks of 2016 and a re-adaptation of Stephen King’s “It,” we’re more likely to see Ronald McDonald as throwing a punch than giving a friendly wave.

26. A little close for comfort

Save

Source: Bored Panda

While some sculptors probably see the potential for their statues to be messed with, the one who made this cowboy probably didn’t foresee this. At least, we hope not.

27. ….and even closer

Save

Source: Bored Panda

We don’t know who this statue is commemorating, but I’m going to guess he probably wouldn’t appreciate having his finger shoved up a stranger’s nose.

28. Thanks for the help!

Save

Source: Bored Panda

This guy is the definition of “extra.” Why use a regular lighter when you can have Lady Liberty herself light your cigarette for you?

29. Right in the gut

Save

Source: Bored Panda

Whenever there’s a statue of a famous athlete, especially one with sports equipment, you can be sure that passersby will find a way to stage a scene just like this one.

30. The ultimate stowaway

Save

Is this the mountain trail version of stowing away on a boxcar? You’d think that guy would notice all the extra weight, but clearly, his life of forging a path as a pioneer has made him strong.

31. Yum?

There’s getting a little too close for comfort, and then there’s this guy who’s lost all sense of boundaries. Yuck, so gross!

32. Go, team!

Save

Is this soldier waving hello to his family after many months on the battlefield or is he offering a high five for beating those nasty Nazis?

33. These tourists are out of control

Save

There’s hitting a man when he’s down, and then there’s kicking a guy into a river when he’s clearly already about to jump. Some people have no manners!

34. It’s a stampede!

Save

Run for your lives, the longhorns are coming! Every 90s child is having a flashback to The Lion King, even though these are cattle, not wildebeests.

35. This seems symbolic

Save

Source: Reddit

Does this creature represent the slog of the college years or the crushing weight of student loan debt? Either one would suit, so we’ll let you decide.

36. What a wingman

Save

What kind of friend lets you pour beer into your mouth just so you can keep doing your morning sun salutation? A friend who’s okay with day-drinking, obviously.

Look, man, if you’re going to flaunt your armpits in public, you need to put some deodorant on, okay? People are starting to feel sick.7

38. How’s the weaning going?

Anybody with a breastfed baby knows they get a little enthusiastic around breasts, or “snack machines” as they call them. Kids also have no boundaries. Can someone get him a bottle, please?

39. After Vader went into banking

Darth Vader loved using the Force for chokeholds, but he didn’t get much of an opportunity after leaving the Empire for an office job. But when the chance arose, he always enjoyed it.

40. A tribute

Save

We’re not sure what’s going on in the original statue, but by golly, did these guys nail it. I wouldn’t be able to spot the difference if I didn’t know that eagles don’t wear parkas!

41. How you doin’?

Whenever you see a busty, human-sized squirrel, you need to stop for a chat. But doesn’t this lady look friendly? She looks like she wants to buy you a drink.

42. When your grandma can’t open Facebook

This lady was clearly made before cell phones were invented. But you’re lying if you say your grandma doesn’t strike this exact expression every time she tries to operate her phone.

43. On Eeeeaaagle’s Wiiiings

Save

Source: Imgur

The world probably thinks this is how Americans get up in the morning: riding to work on their eagles with a bottle of alcohol in each hand. Joke’s on you, we can’t drink while driving!

44. Kids these days!

Save

Source: Bored Panda

Every generation has despaired of its children, saying they’re lazy and have bad manners. But now we have proof that children these days are bullying adults — like this little hooligan right here.

45. I can show you the world…

There’s nothing like hanging out with your dad. He teaches you about the world while snuggling you close, even if you’re 35 years old.

46. What’s another kid?

Save

It’s great to let kids play together! The older ones teach the younger ones, and eventually can even be temporary babysitters. Of course, you might want to make sure they’re real, first.

47. When the harvest is plentiful

There’s nothing like fresh fruit straight off the vine! Preferably dropped into your mouth by a buxom peasant woman, of course.

51. Thanks for the light, man!

Smoking may not be good for you, but smokers always have one another’s backs. Whoever needs a light can count on getting one, even if they’re a statue!

52. Making things personal

The hilarious thing about this one is the discoloration on the statue’s backside. You can tell that this man gets manhandled by many tourists on a daily basis.

53. Please, sir, I want some more!

Look at this statue, symbolizing the 1 percent! He’s out there with his floppy hat and cane while the rest of us are working hard for a living.

54. Thieves always use the same tricks

58. Offering a helping hand

Even avid chess players won’t turn down an occasional pointer from a fellow enthusiast. Although this guy looks like he’s not willing to give her the time of day!

59. Horsing around with Gramps

There’s nothing like spending time with your grandparents. You can hear their stories and share your hopes and dreams …and do whatever the heck these two are doing.

60. Dogs will pee on anything

62. She’s putting up a fight

Save

If you ever have the opportunity to arm-wrestle a monk, don’t let it go to waste. If you beat them, it’ll be a story to tell at parties for the rest of time.

63. Kind of rude

Save

Source: Bored Panda

I don’t remember learning this in etiquette class, but my gut tells me if someone is burning at the stake, it’s not good manners to use their fire to warm your hands.

64. Attack of the giant crab

Save

Source: Bored Panda

If you see a giant crab statue and don’t take a picture of yourself exactly like this, are you even really living?

65. He knew all the Red Bull would pay off

Save

Source: Bored Panda

They say that Red Bull gives you wings. Clearly, this guy has been drinking a lot of it or he’s an actual angel. Or maybe, he’s just, you know, standing in front of a statue.

66. We need to get these people off our streets

Save

Source: Bored Panda

Some people will steal anything, including an abandoned suitcase full of clothes! Or at least, they would steal it if it wasn’t attached to the ground.

67. Beauty contest

Save

Source: Bored Panda

This fancy lady is enjoying her lovely face in the mirror, maybe repeating the “Mirror, mirror” line. She might not be pleased to realize someone else is trying to get a peek, too.

68. Smiling in the face of danger

Save

Source: Bored Panda

This guy is a lot more cool-headed than I would be if I was gored by a rhino. But as they say, some are better under pressure than others.

69. Triple threat

Save

This smiling fellow looks pretty happy to be in a stand-off, but the dangerous ones never look the part. Put ‘em up!

70. I can’t even tell the difference

Save

Source: Bored Panda

This girl is posing among a group of otter statues, and she’s doing such a good job, we frankly can’t tell who is who. Okay, maybe she’s not THAT good.

72. Well, that’s just crass!

What would the great Albert Einstein think of cell phone cameras? There’s no telling. But we can still take pictures with him and wonder!

75. So thoughtful to bring him lunch

75 Comparison Images That Cause A Double Take

Published

on

It’s amazing what you’ll notice when you open your eyes and view the world from a different perspective. That’s what these people found out. Their comparison photos examining the differences and similarities between things will blow your mind.

By looking at two items beside one another, they made some pretty fascinating realizations. Sometimes, it has to do with landscape changes across different seasons. Other times, it is related to people. For example, the mom who matched her face up with her daughter’s and realized that they were pretty much identical twins.

In the moment, one might never notice these sorts of things, but viewing the photos side by side helps to provide contrast and prime our minds for new realizations. Once you see the images for yourself, you’ll understand what we mean.

“Whenever somebody posts a photo of the Milky Way, people invariably ask ‘is that how you see it with the naked eye?’.

Dad Brings Laughter With Tutorial On How To Put Baby To Sleep

Published

on

He’s a husband and father first, but he’s also a funny comedy video creator. This New Zealand dad creates entertaining videos that get lots of hits because they’re downright hilarious. Jordan Watson shares parenting tips and tricks on his youtube page, with a great tongue in cheek style, that other dads (or anyone who takes care of kids) can relate to. Each video has his comedic sense of humor with a deadpan delivery, as he parodies the “how-to” videos that are popular on the internet.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Jordan Watson, from Aukland, New Zealand is a part-time landscaper, full-time dad, and viral video creator.

His first video was just a goof he put together when he was left alone with his baby, Alba. The video is titled, “How to Hold a Baby” and is currently at 3.7 million views. And that’s not even his most-watched video.

In an interview with Stuff, Watson still can’t believe the video went viral overnight,

“It was just me cutting together, in my eyes, crap – just me being an idiot and thinking that one guy at work’s going to like it.”

He chalks his success up to,

“Every parent can kind of relate, and there’s so many people out there who’re aunties, uncles, they look after people’s kids… It’s just everyday scenarios with kids which has given me the inspiration for it.”

Jordan always wears his trademark shirt and shorts or as they’re called in New Zealand, Togs.

In this video, which currently has over four million views, Jordan offers his own witty advice on how to put a baby to sleep. He lists and demonstrates a number of techniques, all with a deadpan delivery that only Jordan can muster.

Some examples are “The Hypnotist,” where dad dangles a nearby toy in front of the baby and coaxes her to sleep.

Another good one is called “The Bribe Dad.” Where dad bribes the baby to go to sleep with, “tomorrow I’ll let you climb the curtains.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

There’s, “Method Acting,” where dad pretends to be sleepy himself, and lays on the floor in order to convince the baby to sleep, too.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

“The Dad That Doesn’t Know A Single Lullaby,” where Jordan mumbles and mishmashes his way through what might sound similar to some known Lullabies.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

The funny thing about this video is that the real star is not Jordan.

No, it’s his baby daughter, Alba. She is such an integral part of the humor, because nearly every time Dad tries his methods, they work. The little one lays down to go to sleep, and her comedic timing is perfect. Dad administers the technique, Alba listens, and then to our rousing laughter, she complies. Leaving Jordan to say,

“It’s never really that easy.”

In Stuff, Jordan had this to say about his daughter,

“I think if you take Alba the cute baby out of it, they’re not going to do very well – it’s definitely 99 percent her, 1 percent me.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Many Youtubers are head over heels for this video, and it’s stars.

“How the baby could understand that he is acting?”

“This child should be the highest paid child actor!”

Another Youtuber wonders,

“I don’t know if that baby is just insanely intelligent, an animatronic, a paid actor or if the dad just really knows his stuff?”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Get ready to laugh with this video. And prepare to go down the rabbit hole as “How To Dad,” Jordan Watson, has an ever-growing collection of funny videos. He feeds his followers a video a week, and probably feeds his charming family with the proceeds.

All in, he’s a really great husband and father, enjoy his funny “how-to” below!

Restaurant Adds Cute Stuffed Pandas To Help Customers During Social Distancing

Published

on

The past couple of months have been tough.

Health concerns, loss of income, and not being able to socialize has been extremely frustrating.

We are social creatures after all and it is in our nature to want to spend time with one another.

I personally live with four other roommates, so getting my fill of social connection hasn’t been too hard.

But I know many people who live alone and haven’t interacted with anyone in quite a while–and it’s starting to take its toll.

Even with four people in my house, I’m still itching for some social interaction with others.

Luckily, restrictions around COVID-19 are starting to lighten up.

Although many stores and restaurants are still closed, we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this whole quarantine business.

But things are still far from normal.

Even if stores are open, you’re still required to wear a mask and keep the recommended six-foot distance from everyone else.

So when one restaurant in Thailand opened its doors for the first time in months, they had some obstacles to overcome.

Maison Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Bangkok, originally planned on having only one chair at each table to promote social distancing according to Insider.

But that just wasn’t cutting it.

When the owner, Natthwut Rodchanapanthkul, saw what the restaurant looked like with only one chair per table, he wasn’t satisfied.

He told reports at Reuters, “Earlier we had only one chair for the tables where the customer came alone. But for me, it felt strange, so I thought I’d give them some company.”

But how do you give someone company at a table when you aren’t supposed to be anywhere near each other?

By bringing in big stuffed pandas of course!

The owner placed stuffed panda bears in various chairs around the restaurant to give it a more cheery and inviting vibe.

It also helped reinforce the social distancing rule according to Bored Panda.

And it worked great.

One customer told Reuters, “The doll makes me feel less lonely eating by myself.”

Another customer explained that the stuffed animals not only improved the vibe of the place, but it made seating arrangements more clear as well.

He told reporters, “It’s a lot easier to understand compared to other restaurants where people always get confused about where to sit and end up sitting too close to each other.”

Now is the time when we need to get creative about the way that we do things.

Sure the owner of Maison Saigon could have just put up a bunch of signs that told people where they could and could not sit.

But how lame would that have been?

Nothing makes tough times harder than boring rules and stiff regulations.

It takes a little fun to shake things up!

And having a meal next to a giant, cuddly, cute stuffed panda sure does lighten the mood a bit.

Source: Maison Saigon

So if you happen to be stuck at home by yourself right now, maybe give this stuffed animal trick a try.

Put a few on your couch, a couple at the dinner table, and maybe even one out on the deck.

Whatever it takes to get through this isolation period with a little bit of sanity is worth it.

And don’t be too surprised if you find that one small panda goes a long way.
