50 Bizarre Actions That Make You Question People's Sanity

17 Apr 2024

Times may change, but some things in the world remain constant - people, their actions, and creations that leave you in shock... and experiencing nothing short of cringe! We've curated for you a collection of the most cringe-worthy photos imaginable!

McDonald's workers will understand him without words!

It's hard to imagine how this man dared to get such a tattoo. Perhaps he fell asleep on his stomach, and his buddies decided to play a prank on him with a temporary tattoo?

We'd like to believe that, but most likely, the tattoo is real. Well, if we were McDonald's staff, we'd let him skip the line at the cash register!          

When Photoshop extends beyond just the face!

It's undoubtedly clear to the naked eye that this photo has been heavily edited, but why draw a pregnant belly... that's truly a big mystery to us! And it's also unclear why the belly was photoshopped in the first photo but not in the second!

Perhaps the girl is suggesting to her followers to play a game of 'spot the 5 differences' this way? 

What a nightmare!

It seems that the designer of this kitchen gadget has a rich imagination, perhaps too rich! Okay, they made this strange thing for separating egg whites and yolks, but what inspired people to actually pay money for this thing? 

What a nightmare!.jpg?format=webp@WeirdDesign1/twitter

Although we have an idea! Such a device is good for those who want to lose weight. While using it to cook, your appetite will surely disappear!

Tiger is in shock!

Let's note that not only the tiger is in shock but we are too! And we think that looking at this cringeworthy photo, you must have been surprised as well. At first glance, it's not clear why zoo employees are carrying a toy tiger on a stretcher. 

Tiger is in shock!.jpg?format=webp@thorwald2000/April 8 2013/imgur.com

Upon reflection, one might speculate that there's an animator inside the tiger costume who felt unwell, but even that doesn't make this photo look any less epic.


Well, judging by the fact that sandwiches are glued all over this guy's costume, he not only loves feeding seagulls but also absolutely adores shocking the public! 

Sandwich-man.jpg?format=webp@September 26 2013/imgur.com

Undoubtedly, this guy isn't afraid to look extremely bizarre, as going out in such attire on a public beach is definitely not something everyone can handle. But is it worth it? We think it's better to engage in more useful activities.

He doesn't waste time!

While some people patiently wait for the pedestrian light to turn green, this odd guy decided not to waste time and opted to do a split right there. 

He doesn't waste time!.jpg?format=webp@Peoplestanding/Instagram.com

Perhaps he's a professional athlete who stretches everywhere, or maybe he's just a peculiar individual who can't go a minute without drawing attention to himself.

Inappropriate joy

On the internet, you can come across many strange photos where people in the foreground are smiling while horrible events unfold behind them. Just like in this photo - a guy is smiling brightly while behind him there's an overturned bus after an accident and the police. How does that look? To say the least, cringeworthy. 

Inappropriate joy.jpg?format=webp@30.04.2004/knowyourmeme.com

Perhaps this guy was on the bus during the accident and is showcasing how glad he is to have survived. But most likely, he was just passing by and decided to jump on the hype train.

Poor deer

We don't know who might find this photo cute, as to us, it seems cringeworthy for several reasons. At the very least, keeping such a large animal at home is simply cruel. No amount of cute room decorations can make up for this. 

Poor deer.jpg?format=webp@2011.10.20/washingtonpost.com

It's clear that the animal is under stress in such an environment and wants to be free rather than celebrate its birthday locked up in a small room. However, this woman seems to have decided that it's now her child! 

Why not have lunch together with... a bison?

While some guys can't seem to gather the courage to ask a girl they like out on a date, others are having lunch with... a bison! We don't know how this photo came about, but at the very least, it's dangerous. 

Why not have lunch together with... a bison!.jpg?format=webp@acidcow.com

Most likely, the person who took this photo thought it was very funny, but in reality, it's cringe-worthy and could have cost the guy his health, at least. Joking around with animals, especially such large ones, is not a good idea.

Heating pads for the stomach with an unexpected design!

While some may find these heating pads cute, we suspect that most people will find them slightly... cringeworthy! According to the author of these heating pads, even her husband initially thought so, not understanding why she was doing this. 

Heating pads for the stomach with an unexpected design!.jpg?format=webp@Garymeowmeow/October 30 2020/imgur.com

However, when girls started buying these heating pads, he changed his mind. Despite their funny appearance, they can alleviate stomach pain during periods!

Not everyone will appreciate this 'humor'!

Well, we can all imagine the scene when the owner of the car is refueling it with gas... Some will laugh at it, while others will consider it a real cringe! 

Not everyone will appreciate this 'humor'!.jpg?format=webp@May 28 2014/imgur.com

Moreover, the girl in the photo clearly has no idea where her face has been depicted, and to someone, it even seemed funny…

Cat's in shock... and so are we!

You've probably seen all sorts of home slippers, but we bet fish-shaped slippers are a first for you! It's frightening even to imagine why someone came up with this idea. 

Cat's in shock... and so are we!.jpg?format=webp@Bumbledawg/Reddit.com

What's even more bizarre is that there are people out there actually buying these. We'll try to take it all with humor, though it's quite a challenge.

Making a trip to the bathroom full of 'creativity'!

Well, we've certainly seen various toilet accessories, but this is something new! Perhaps the author of this toilet paper contraption could confidently compete for the title of the weirdest and most unnecessary invention! 

Making a trip to the bathroom full of 'creativity'!.jpg?format=webp@kleinanzeigen.de

Maybe it might strike someone as creative - after all, it was purchased! By the way, some people do have their own unique sense of humor!

Even a cat can add a cringe factor to your home!

Pets often amuse their owners and do very funny, and sometimes strange, things! Take this cat, for example; for some reason, it decided to lay right inside a pair of jeans. 

Even a cat can add a cringe factor to your home!.jpg?format=webp@Courageousrobot/August 22 2013/imgur.com

Though it's possible its owners placed it there to take a funny photo. In any case, it's a strange sight, to say the least.

A new level of cringe!

If a teenager were to go out like this, it might be somewhat understandable, as they often have an unusual sense of humor. But seeing an adult man like this shocks many! 

A new level of cringe!.jpg?format=webp@dcrotor/November 2 2013/imgur.com

It seems that the girl in the foreground of the photo has already noticed it, and her reaction reveals all her emotions! Well, at least the man cheered up those around him!


Oh my god, who could have come up with such a thing! Not only does the sight of a leech on the skin evoke unpleasant emotions for many, but here it also has a pink bow! 


One wouldn't be surprised if the author of the photo even gave this leech a name and set up a pink house for it. It all looks really cringeworthy! 

When you decide to shock the neighbors!

We think this is one of the strangest mailboxes we've ever seen. At least, it's the first time we've seen something like this! You can immediately assume that someone very unusual lives in the house with such a mailbox. 

When you decide to shock the neighbors!.jpg?format=webp@lavallama/January 13 2020/imgur.com

We're even afraid to imagine what this person's house conceals and what unusual things can be found inside it...  

When you're really tired after work...

At first glance, it's funny, but on second thought, you feel sorry for the pizza... and of course, the girl in the photo! And the most cringeworthy thing about it is not her at all, but the person who took the photo. 

When you're really tired after work.jpg?format=webp@November 20 2018/imgur.com 

Instead of trying to fix the situation and help the girl, this person just decided to take a picture and even post it online... Real cringe sometimes lies in such actions! 

It's frightening to imagine what's going on lower down...

Sometimes people do something very strange with their appearance! For example, shaving their hair like the guy in the photo. Judging by his satisfied expression, he's clearly pleased with himself and his unusual look, but those around him are unlikely to be thrilled with such a style. 

It's frightening to imagine what's going on lower down.jpg?format=webp@freejumper505/March 13 2021/imgur.com

But as they say, everyone is free to do whatever they want with their body, as long as it doesn't bother others.

"Romance" to the maximum!

It's hard for us to imagine someone who would come up with this, but it really looks absurd! I wonder what the intention was? To sit with your significant other next to you on the toilet? Or to use the first and second toilets alternately for variety? 

@juijksilver1991/@May 9 2020/imgur.com

It's hard for us to find an answer to this question, but now you know that such a thing exists in the world!


This blogger started off on the right foot - talking about food, particularly healthy options. But if you compare his content and appearance from 4 years ago to today, it's embarrassing. 


Instead of continuing to promote a healthy lifestyle, he's hyping up eating copious amounts of burgers, and just look at how much weight he's gained in that time! Sometimes hype is synonymous with cringe!

What a nightmare!

This is not just cringe; it's a bad dream! We'd hope this was a joke for April Fools, but no, it's a real tattoo! Some people have no limits!

What a nightmare!.jpg?format=webp@09/02/2016/ebaumsworld.com

We don't know if this guy actually has a son, but if he does, he surely looks more likable than this cringe-worthy tattoo.

Cringe-worthy experiments

We don't know what this guy was thinking when he decided to experiment with fire, but now we can confidently assume that he won't dare to do it again. 

Cringe-worthy experiments.jpg?format=webp@instant_regret/Reddit.com

At the very least, he realized that it's painful, and at most, that it's also dangerous for health and life! But he still decided to post the photo for hype.

When a car trip goes wrong!

Well, we won't laugh at this woman, because judging by her facial expression, she's already feeling pretty down. I wonder - were there any warning signs installed indicating that fresh concrete had been poured?

When a car trip goes wrong!.jpg?format=webp@HaddonH/Reddit.com

If yes, then the questions are only for the driver. But if not, we feel embarrassed for those responsible for road repairs. In any case, this adventure is something this woman will surely remember for the rest of her life. 

The work of a 'genius'!

Adding packets of spices to salt and pepper shakers is truly outrageous! It would have been better if they just placed these packets directly on the table. 

The work of a 'genius'!.jpg?format=webp@awesomeinventions.com

Looking at such things, you start to doubt the sanity of some people at least. They don't seek easy ways and won't let anyone around them relax!

“Good” repair

This unusual sight raises numerous questions about the circumstances leading to such a peculiar "repair" job. Some have proposed that the driver may have resorted to this unusual tactic as a temporary measure to address cracks or chips in the windshield, perhaps until a more permanent solution could be arranged. 

“Good” repair.jpg?format=webp@Derek/February 13, 2018/pleated-jeans.com

Others suggest a more whimsical explanation, proposing that the band-aid-adorned windshield might be an eccentric expression of creativity or humor.

The mystery of the peculiar mannequin pose

Positioned in a half-squatting stance, with arms awkwardly positioned and a frozen expression of uncertainty, this mannequin defies conventional norms of posture and poise. Regardless of the true explanation behind this oddity, the image serves as a reminder of the unexpected and quirky moments encountered in everyday life.

Whether intentional or inadvertent, the sight of a mannequin frozen in such an awkward and unnatural pose prompts laughter and curiosity among passersby. 

A funny way to send a resume!

While some candidates traditionally submit their resumes online, this individual decided to unleash maximum creativity, but the outcome was, to put it mildly, peculiar! 

A funny way to send a resume!.jpg?format=webp@Jessicascorpio/twitter.com

He sent their resume to a prospective employer along with a box of donuts! What a clever move! Do you think he got invited for an interview?

One of the most cringe-worthy gifts in the world!

How about a gift for new parents in the form of a frame for their baby's first used diaper? Looks cute, doesn't it? Of course, we haven't lost our minds and we're just kidding because that's real cringe! 

One of the most cringe-worthy gifts in the world!.jpg?format=webp@awesomeinventions.com

But before you recover from the shock, let us reassure you - it's just a prank, and inside the box, there's a cute little outfit hidden.

When you're afraid to break the rules too much!

Apparently, the girl thought she couldn't cross that red line, but she was too hungry and wanted to place her order despite anything. 

When you're afraid to break the rules too much!.jpg?format=webp@Peoplestanding/Instagram.com

However, it's easy to guess that crossing the red line is not allowed for the person who's second in line, not for the one placing the order. But some people never cease to amaze with their "resourcefulness".

Believers certainly won't appreciate this "humor"

People can come up with all sorts of things sometimes! Googly eyes are stuck in many places - on shoes, on cups, on children... but on Jesus! This is the first time we've seen something like this, and we assume you have too. 

Believers certainly won't appreciate this @awesomeinventions.com

As you can see, some people have no boundaries and don't quite understand what's funny and what's, to put it mildly, strange.

Now he needs to lose weight!

Looking at this photo, many will recall the tale of Winnie the Pooh - he managed to climb into the hole but couldn't get back out! It's the same scenario here. Of course, the mystery remains as to why this man even attempted to get into this contraption in the first place. 

Now he needs to lose weight!.jpg?format=webp@Frozenteacher/Reddit.com

Judging by his sad expression, he's probably regretted it a hundred times over! Surely, someone will come to his rescue and free him, even if it means having to see through the swing. Let's hope next time he'll think twice before doing something like this.

Sometimes animals can seek revenge!

Apparently, this guy decided to hype up his image with a bold photo alongside a snake, but the animal had other plans. We're sure the bite was painful, and yet we hope that the snake wasn't venomous and didn't cause too much damage to the guy's nose. 

Sometimes animals can seek revenge!.png?format=webp@Drewstrummer/Reddit.com

It looks epic and once again serves as a reminder not to joke around with living creatures!

An epic food presentation... but it missed the table!

Well, it seems this guy wanted to show off a big dish in front of everyone and the camera, but he didn't consider that tipping the dish usually results in food spilling out... Epic fail! 

An epic food presentation... but it missed the table!.jpg?format=webp@November036/Reddit.com

We're not sure what it is - it looks like some kind of pie, but we think everyone present was disappointed and won't trust this guy with the important mission of serving food to the table anymore.

When you "slightly" misjudge your capabilities!

Well, we've seen all sorts of things, but this is a first! You had to be so confident as a driver to not realize that the truck wouldn't fit under that bridge. 

When you @NinjaCatPurr/Reddit.com 

And what adds to the epicness of this photo is the writing on the truck... in this case, it sounds like a real mockery!

The epitome of confidence

Well, being confident is good, but reasonable boundaries have never hurt anyone. Some will admire the courage and confidence of this girl, while others will decide that it's just cringeworthy! 

The epitome of confidence.jpg?format=webp@04 Jun, 2017/piximus.net

In any case, she'll definitely leave no one indifferent. What do you say about this?

Home troublemaker

We don't know who this funny guy wanted to threaten with a bat, but he definitely scared his grandfather. Judging by the expression on his face, he certainly didn't expect to see his grandson like this. 

Home troublemaker.jpg?format=webp@04 Jun, 2017/piximus.net

Now they'll definitely have something to discuss in the evening - at least what prompted the guy to such a strange photoshoot.

‘The god of acting’

Well, apparently, this guy wanted to take a photo as if he was defending himself from someone, but he didn't realize that the reflection in the car window showed that there was no one near him. 

‘The god of acting’.jpg?format=webp@04 Jun, 2017/piximus.net

That's the kind of photo mishap that carelessness and the desire to hype sometimes lead to. In any case, the guy wanted to make a name for himself on the internet - and he succeeded.

When you slightly deviate from the right path

Apparently, this passage is not meant for cars at all, but the driver of this crossover thought otherwise. Sometimes people overestimate their abilities and end up looking ridiculous as a result. 

When you slightly deviate from the right path.jpg?format=webp@ferio252/Reddit.com

Moreover, in this case, the driver's imprudent action also caused damage to public property.

A doubly dreadful accident

It's astonishing how even on the road, such strange occurrences can happen, like the one in the photo. What's even more surprising is that such situations are not isolated, and there's information online indicating they've occurred in different cities and countries. 

A doubly dreadful accident.jpg?format=webp@RoRoar350/Reddit.com

It's very strange that drivers don't secure coffins in their cars properly to prevent such horrifying situations, which, to say the least, are shocking.

What a surprise!

Looking at this photo, it feels like friends played a prank on him while he was sleeping and gave him such hair coloring. Otherwise, we can't even imagine how a sane person could do this to themselves. 

What a surprise!.jpg?format=webp@noondo_-nibba/Reddit.com 

In any case, the guy's hair will grow back quickly, or he can dye it back, but with long female hair, the situation would have been more critical.


While some girls get upset when their guys stare at other girls' chests, here the situation has taken a completely different turn. What do you think of this matching outfit? It looks slightly cringy, doesn't it? 


Anyway, it'll definitely get laughs from those around, and that's probably the intention behind it.

What if they break up?

Judging by the looks of it, that's not drawn with a marker, it's a real tattoo! Of course, it's not as terrible as tattooing your lover's name on your body since that causes a lot of problems after a breakup, but it still looks strange. 

What if they break up.jpg?format=webp@Splitpics.uk

However, apparently, this creative couple found it very original and beautiful.

More rats

In a world where family photoshoots are often filled with roses, sunsets, and picturesque landscapes, one couple decided to take a wildly different approach – by incorporating rats into their romantic session.

More rats.jpg?format=webp@Splitpics.uk

It looks at least disgusting and repulsive, but apparently, this couple decided it's the pinnacle of creativity. Well, everyone has their own limit of imagination!

People come up with all sorts of things!

We've heard of people scrolling through social media or even watching movies while on the toilet, but this is a first! How someone came up with the idea to install a working computer in the bathroom is a true mystery! 

People come up with all sorts of things!.jpg?format=webp@Mizuka Ishiwatari/ 11.10.2021/ebaumsworld.com

Well, let's just hope the owner of this workstation doesn't answer work calls with the camera turned on.

"Glamorous" pedicure

Of course, no one argues - long nails can sometimes be very beautiful, but clearly not in this case. It's even hard to imagine how she could wear shoes with such a pedicure. 

@Mizuka Ishiwatari/ 11.10.2021/ebaumsworld.com

Does she need to take shoes several sizes bigger for the nails to fit? The question remains open, but the fact is obvious - it's cringeworthy.

Poor child!

It's astonishing how someone could find such a photo funny, and one can only wonder what the parents of this poor child were thinking. 

Poor child!.jpg?format=webp@Lori/awkwardfamilyphotos.com

Moreover, they probably found this photo very creative and amusing since they even posted it online. Well, let's hope this odd behavior from the child's parents comes to an end.

Very unexpected

In the realm of maternity photoshoots, one expectant mother decided to veer off the beaten path and embrace the unexpected.

Very unexpected.jpg?format=webp@awkwardfamilyphotos.com

To have a photoshoot with a goat and even decorate it with flowers is stepping outside the norm. However, at the same time, this photoshoot looks more strange than beautiful.

Nose hair extensions are...horrible!

While the pursuit of beauty knows no bounds, the trend of nose hair extensions raises eyebrows. Delving into the reasons behind this peculiar practice, it becomes evident that it's often driven by a desire to stand out and challenge conventional beauty standards. 

Nose hair extensions are...horrible!.jpg?format=webp@Supremegalacticgod/Reddit.com

For some, it's a playful defiance against societal norms, while for others, it's simply a quirky expression of individuality. Whatever the motivation, it looks awful!

Cat chair!

It seems the owner of this chair has an excessive love for cats, as she decided to even decorate the chair legs with socks resembling cat paws. 

Cat chair!.jpg?format=webp@wreck_it_rita/Reddit.com 

Let's hope it was done by a child and not an adult, but we still suspect it's the work of a grown-up. People come up with the most unexpected ideas!
