Sometimes comedy is instant and immediate. That's slapstick for you—the custard pie in the face, as long as you're not on the receiving end, is all it takes to make us laugh. Other comedy, however, is a little more subtle, and you can't pick up the joke in an instant. That's the kind of material that really makes you laughonce you get it.
That's why we're steering clear of slapstick today and going for something a little more nuanced. You'll want to take a second glance at each of these images.
Once you do, you'll be laughing your socks off.
1. The University That We All Wish We Had Attended
"Roller Coaster University?" We'll have some of that, please. This is brilliant because it probably makes other people, who don't read it, think the owner is a highly qualified graduate.
2. Mutt As Well Give Flying A Try
This passenger is a rare breed. We just hope that the flight's not too ruff for him or he might be reaching for the sick bag.
3. This Really Needs A Long Look
You won't see this at all and then all of a sudden you won't be able to unsee it. You need to sit a little farther back from the screen and look at the pebble in the wall.
4. The Suburban Gangster
The irony is strong with this one. Really, there may be nothing less threatening in history than a guy who is exposing Polo underwear and carrying diapers.
5. Shot Through The Heart
It's not so much the amorous couple here as the distinctly unhappy person in the background pulling off a super photo bomb. The photo was spoiled forever.
6. The Magical Dorito In A Bottle
We have no idea how they made this happen. We're not sure we want to know. Sometimes, it's best just to let the magic be.
7. The Duck That Learned From The Fast And The Furious
You must have seen Tokyo Drift, right? This was one of the ducks that didn't get a part in the movie but which really impressed at auditions.
8. Too Much Meta For Us
This is harmless enough, but there's something quite odd about the need to project your own arm on your watch screen. Is it in case you forget your arm is there?
9. The Owl That Is Half An Owl
Yup, underneath that rather proud looking belly is not very much owl at all. He doesn't look very pleased that we know about this either.
10. The Bi-Hairy Legs
This can't be unseen. It's what happens when you skimp on shaving when you're going to wear a sun dress for the day.
11. You Got To Grind To Get This Viewpoint
This is a very clever selfie because it's not in the real world, but rather in the computer game Minecraft. Grinding is what they call working over and over again to get the scene looking just right.
12. The Sky Is Falling
This is a neat trick. This car isn't actually upside down. It's been constructed to appear like it is upside down. Some people have too much time on their hands.
13. Look At The Back And Don't Turn The Dryer On
If it feels like the dryer is staring back at you here, that's because it is. Look closely and then realize what a cat-astrophe it would be if the machine was switched on.
14. Taking Recycling Way Too Far
You know that recycling has gone too far when people finish their cheeseburgers and then put the bags on their feet. What's wrong with her shoes?
15. Just Don't Tell Him To Grow Up
There's some stark contrast involved when the little brother stops by for a group shot with his siblings. They look like a lovely bunch of people.
Sometimes, it's worth taking a second look at things because they may not be as they seem.
