The medical field is a pretty serious place. It has to be, since the health of a lot of people is on the line there. However, that doesn’t mean that those in the field don’t know how to have a good laugh. In fact, we’d say that humor is vital in the medical field, considering how important it is to both the professionals’ sanity and the comfort of the patients. Here are a few examples.
Adding to the X-Ray
X-rays are designed to reveal the innards of a human being, but it can actually reveal a number of other things, particularly things that aren’t biological at all. Case in point, this image right here.
It probably got a good number of laughs from the doctor and any other nurses around, as well as the patient herself. We can’t help but wonder how often these types of things actually happen.
Representing Your Field
As a nurse, you deal with a lot of needles and a lot of syringes. Most patients don’t like those two things, but you can actually use them to great effect if you know how to make them more friendly.
For instance, at a party, you can make syringe Jell-O shots for everyone to enjoy. It’s pretty much the best way to say, ‘see, nurses can be cool too! We know how to have fun!’ That’s the point of this list, of course.
From the Top
You may think that it’s only doctors and nurses who know how to have fun, but even the people in charge at hospitals know what they can do to get a good laugh time and again. Take these medical caps for example.
Why the people in charge thought these would be a good idea, we’re not sure. They don’t really look that professional. But considering how scary the medical field can be, maybe it’s a good thing for the professionals to look more approachable.
The Lone Wolf
In countries that don’t have a well-established medical system, you often only have a village doctor of sorts. Sometimes, they know full well what they are doing, and may even have a degree. Other times, perhaps not.
What happens when the village doctor gets sick? Well, there’s not exactly any doctor for them to visit, being the only one and all. However, if you have a doctor who refuses to go to a doctor, you may want to question their pedigree.
My EMT Buddies
If you and your friends work in the medical field, you may see them in some odd situations. Or, perhaps your roommates are just EMTs, and you aren’t. It would be kind of odd to call an ambulance and get your buddies, wouldn’t it?
And of course, you may not trust the professionalism of your friends, since friendship often thwarts that kind of thing. But hey, they are still EMTs, so you can trust them, right? Right?
Stare Into the Abyss
Learning the way the human mind works is pretty tough. And by learning those things, you also learn a lot more about your own mind. In that way, you gain more insight into yourself, and you may not always like what you find.
Hence, the joke being made here by someone studying the human mind. We haven’t gone through what they have but we can get where they are coming from in this case. It makes perfect sense to us that the psychiatry learning process is kind of crazy.
Prepare for the Dark
We made a joke about night shift already, but surely you didn’t think there would only be one such joke, right? After all, the night shift is a nightmare for so many people, you know there would be more than jest.
We don’t recommend using toothpicks in this manner though, as that would probably be pretty painful with the sharp points and all. Maybe just rely on coffee, which does the job a bit better without causing any physical injury.
A Little Creepy, but Not Wrong
Did you know that an EMT may have to cut your clothes off of your body if you are injured? That’s because they can’t risk moving your body around to get the clothes off normally, in case you have internal injuries.
So, if you’re the shy type, you may want to consider this when you go driving. Strangers will get to see you naked if you get into an accident and need EMTs to respond. Sure, they are professionals, but it’s still kind of uncomfortable, no?
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
Nurses have to go through a lot. Even though they work as a team, a lot of blame often goes towards one. The thinly veiled sarcasm here is how nurses who are used to this situation deal with it. We can tell that it’s a little bitter.
Well, maybe more than a little bitter. But we can’t exactly blame anyone for being bitter about a situation like this. Taking all the blame for everyone’s shortcomings and mistakes is never fun.
Risk It All
Sometimes, medical professionals are asked to do some pretty crazy things. And oftentimes, they can’t do anything other than crack a joke or two and accept it. Still, putting yourself in the way of a hurricane is probably a little too much.
But hey, if you have a job and need money, you might just do what you have to do. Sometimes the world rolls like that. Still, you couldn’t pay us enough to do something like that!
A Little Concerning
These medical professionals are not American, and frankly, we don’t speak the language that appears to be Cyrillic. But we do understand that little warning sign on the box, and we have to say, it’s both amusing and a little concerning.
Are chainsaw madmen a common thing in their country? Or are they just making a funny joke about one of the most wild ways their medical tools may be used?
How You Know
When you’re a medical professional, there’s one vehicle you don’t want to see a lot of on the way to work: ambulances. After all, the more of those you see, the busier you know your day is going to be.
Of course said professionals probably care more about people being alright, but we can still imagine the sighs of frustration and the eye-rolling as they encounter three or four ambulances on the way to work. Sounds like a hassle to us.
When a patient is sleeping, a medical professional wants to try and stay quiet and let them rest if at all possible. Unfortunately, if your shoes are too squeaky, that might be a problem. Nothing to do but joke about it!
Well, that and feel somewhat apologetic about it as well. Sorry, sleeping patients: it’s not like the nurses are trying to interrupt your beauty sleep! There’s just nothing they can really do about it.
Working With What You Have
Hair ties may be cheap, but that doesn’t always mean you have them on hand. This nurse was lacking this vital instrument, but she managed to use something else every nurse has on her: gloves.
We doubt it will become a fashionable trend at any point, but hey, it did do its job pretty admirably for a latex glove, don’t you think? Maybe more medical professionals will start doing this if they have no other alternative.
Working in a hospital is a co-ed experience for most medical professionals, so relationships aren’t that uncommon. However, sometimes it’s not about relationships, and it’s just about having attractive people to look at while going about your busy day.
So it makes sense that some nurses might get upset if the handsome guy they work with ends up going elsewhere. Having eye candy while in a tough job is a good way to keep your stress and frustration down!
The Dino Has a Point
Waiting around in the emergency room is no fun when you have a good reason to be there. Even so, it’s actually good if you have to wait around, because that means you aren’t going to die. The people who are rushed right away are the ones in trouble.
And hey, if a cute little dinosaur is the one giving you that message, all the better. Let that stay in your mind if you ever have to go to the emergency room.
Music in a hospital isn’t that uncommon, but then you run into the problem of whether or not everyone likes the music that is playing. Needless to say, you can’t make everyone happy, which may lead to some distaste from the coworkers or the patients.
We have to wonder, how do hospitals choose what music is going to play in their halls or their rooms? Or is it up to the person that works in the room itself?
Playing the Part
Of all the medical professions out there, dentists might be some of the most hated. It’s not their fault: it’s just the things they have to do to your teeth that no one likes. So dentists should do whatever they can to alleviate their bad image.
Being the tooth fairy is a decent way of doing that. At least as far as kids are concerned, it would probably go a long way in helping them rest a little easier. And it’s funny too.
Delusions of Grandeur
The Placebo Effect is a real thing: but if the thing being treated is delusions, then how much stock can you take in someone saying that a placebo is working? After all, aren’t they suffering from delusions? This joke points that reality out.
But hey, maybe it actually is working. The problem is that you can’t really say one way or another if that is so, because of the problem being treated. It’s kind of funny, either way.
Working the maternity ward is probably something that is pretty tough and doesn’t have a lot of laughs, at least not until a baby is actually born. There’s probably some smiles then.
So you have to make your own fun every once in awhile. Thankfully, it’s not that hard to do that if you are just a little creative and clever. The real question is, would the mothers about to give birth really appreciate the humor?
One to Floss Them All
As we said earlier, dentists aren’t exactly well liked in the world of medical professions. So they have to be funny guys and gals to appear more approachable. Actually, have you noticed that most dentists are actually quite charming and funny?
Well, posters like this are exactly what we mean. It’s funny, and a good way for dentists to relate to some of the people they work with, as well as just show that they too are normal folks with hobbies.
With a View
Let’s be honest, having a view may be nice, but there are some situations in which you probably don’t want one. You know, like at the gynecologist. We assume that this is just a joke on the doctor’s part, and that the blinds are closed when things get going.
Still, we can imagine the brief experience of discomfort and incredulity at the sight of this room. What woman wouldn’t be put off by something like this, right?
Don’t Let Your Memes Be Dreams
Most older people don’t really get memes or any value they may have. They also aren’t something you’d expect a doctor to use. However, some doctors are hip and happening, and they know the true value of memes.
We’re just saying, a doctor that can use a funny meme is a doctor that we would be willing to place our faith in. To an extent, of course. We’d still distrust them a little bit on principle.
Passive Aggressive Care
Considering that doctors have degrees and most normal people do not, it’s pretty understandable that they hear a lot of stupid stuff in their line of work. We also imagine they get fed up with it quite a lot, leading to things like this.
Does this doc seem a little frustrated to you? Because frankly, he seems a little frustrated to us. Not that we can speak for him or anything.
A Good Argument
Unfortunately, there are some situations in life where someone may have to get a prosthetic. That really sucks, and it’s pretty sobering to go in and get one. That’s why everyone should appreciate a doctor who tires to make the process less painful.
It’s always nice to have a doctor who understands that a little laughter can make tough things easier. This is why humor is absolutely vital in any medical profession.
The Spooky Treatment
Even on holidays, hospitals have to stay in operation in case people get hurt. That being the case, many medical professionals decide to celebrate such holidays in other ways. That’s why you may encounter the Joker at the hospital on Halloween.
A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one. After all, the Joker has some experience with hospitals, right? At the least, Heath Ledger’s version does.
One look at this picture, and you can tell what kind of clinic this is. But hey, we’re not complaining. It’s actually pretty clever as far as decoration is concerned, and most people probably laugh when they see it.
Still, we can’t imagine how odd it was to ask someone to do this. Like ‘hey, could you paint this countertop so it looks like a sperm cell? Yeah, thanks.’
Doctors: they love groan inducing puns. Although, we have to actually give them props for this one, as it is pretty funny. Stool sample: get it? Still, what’s more amusing is how much effort someone went through for this pun.
Like, he had to go out and get a little stool from a dollhouse or something, just to put in a jar for his patients and himself to giggle at. That’s serious dedication to a bit. A really funny bit, but a bit nevertheless.
Too Close to Home
A lot of people want to be thin. And often, we tell ourselves that we would do anything to achieve it. But let’s be honest, that’s not really true. It’s just something we tell ourselves, and this doctor knows it.
But hey, exercise is hard and we like to eat good food. Can anyone really blame us for that? We don’t think they could, fairly at any rate. Besides, it’s just a joke that every doctor probably knows and tells once a week.
A colonoscopy is something that no one actually looks on with any fondness. It’s a very awkward and uncomfortable procedure for a patient. That being said, a good joke may go a long way in making a patient feel a little better about their situation.
Well, maybe not much, but anything is better than nothing, right? Even the slightest bit of comfort helps in these types of situations, which lots of people have to deal with.
Some skills can only be used in very specific scenarios, while others can be used in other fields as well. Oddly enough, there are some nursing skills that actually serve a purpose: still, gardening? Who would have thought?
It’s funny to see all of those plants with little drips of their own, though. Maybe they’re in critical care, and need both a healing hand and a green thumb! That’s a rare set of skills for one person to have, so they’re pretty lucky.
Back to the Dentist
Do you see what we mean at this point, about how hard dentists try to be cool and approachable? Seriously, they are very aware of their status in the world, if all of these jokes are anything to go by. It’s impressive that they go to these lengths.
Then again, we suppose they have to: if you have to pick between a nice guy and a scary guy to stab your gums, which one are you more likely to choose? That’s right, the nice one. We hope, at least.
The Joys of Reading
A lot of clinics and doctor’s offices have TVs to entertain you while you wait or while you are being treated. Some offices have TVs, but apparently don’t care to use them. Or maybe it’s just broken. We don’t know for sure.
Either way, we hope this office at least had some magazines or something. Otherwise, who actually brings a book during their visit to a doctor? We know some people do, but we firmly believe they are in the minority.
Thinly Veiled Double Meanings
Puns and dentists go hand in hand. Seriously, we think they are contractually obligated to use them if at all possible. Still, this one is actually of pretty good quality, so we don’t mind it, even if it is the lowest form of comedy.
Do dentists just sit around and contemplate jokes they can use in their office? Or do they just get struck with inspiration while going about their business? Who can really say?
Is This Offensive?
How do you know if you need a colonoscopy? Well, there’s a bunch of legitimate ways to determine that, but you could also just think back on what type of fashion you actually remember. That’s what this doctor did, and he’s kind of got a point.
Not that anyone should be offended, right? We all get old eventually, there’s no getting around that. Might as well joke about it, rather than get upset.
The Best What Now?
You guessed it, we have another wise guy dentist here with the jokes. At least it’s not a pun this time: it’s a double-entendre, which is marginally better. Once again, we suppose it helps to be funny when you’re an evil person like a dentist.
Seriously, who grows up wanting to be the guy that roots around in other people’s mouths? Only someone you should watch your back around, that’s who.
All in One
You know how being tech smart means your family just assumes you know how to do literally everything with a computer. Being a medical professional is kind of like that. No matter what type of doctor you are, it is often assumed that you know everything.
Maybe such a doctor should be flattered, but we imagine it’s actually just really frustrating and kind of annoying, just like it is when parents do that in any kind of situations.
The Medical Alphabet
We all know that doctors have terrible penmanship. But hey, doctors know it as well. They are perfectly willing to make fun of themselves in this regard, hence this poster that was hanging up in a hospital room.
We shall henceforth dub the doctor language as ‘Squiglish.’ After all, there isn’t a single letter in the medical alphabet that isn’t just a bunch of squiggles. What is it that makes this the reality for all doctors anyway?
Proper Punctuation, Folks
Punctuation is very important at all times, but especially when you are trying to tell a doctor what your problem is. If you don’t use proper punctuation, there might be some… confusion. Granted, that confusion may be hilarious, so there is that.
We can’t help but wonder if this happens a lot, and if it is always this funny. Either way, doctors probably get a good laugh out of this, and may even go so far as to share it with their fellows.
Do You Like My Moustache?
Military hospitals are a little different from regular hospitals, but ultimately there are some things that are the same. For instance, they often compete with each other. These doctors were apparently competing about their moustaches.
Getting feedback from the masses is the only way to settle something like that, so they added exactly such a question to their little surveys. It’s the most subtle kind of office humor.
When you work in the emergency room, you are going to see some pretty wild things. Most of them are things that will shock you, to the extent that all you can really do is make a joke about it. For instance, finding heroin in someone’s crotch.
We really hope that means ‘in their pants’ and not truly ‘in their crotch’ but frankly, we wouldn’t be surprised if it was the latter. It doesn’t seem that far fetched, honestly.
Shouldn’t Have To
Of all the things you would think are common sense, not eating poop is one of them. You shouldn’t have to tell people that eating poop is bad for them. And yet, some doctors have to do exactly that.
Seriously, we can’t help but imagine how many doctors have to refrain from outright calling some patients stupid. After all, how could you hear that and think the person you are speaking to is sane in any way? We can’t see it.
As Seen on TV
Regular civilians like to think that medical professionals are exactly that: professional. But truth is, they are just people, and like all people, they tend to be a little inappropriate if they need to blow off steam.
The same is true for those who work in the emergency room, of course. We hope they at least tend to keep it down while working with an actual patient, but when there is no one around to be bothered by it, they probably tell some sketchy jokes.
The All in One FAQ
Doctors get asked a lot of questions, so it stands to reason that they may decide to make life easier for themselves by just making a little FAQ of sorts. But this FAQ is a little different, because all of the answers are cheeky jokes.
Funny though they may be, we imagine that these hit home for the husbands more than they do for the wives. Maybe because it plays to some stereotypes most of us are aware of.
The Night Watch
The night shift is something that many medical professionals have to deal with, and it always sucks, all the time. Coffee is something many of them rely on to try and stay awake no matter what. Naturally, they don’t inject the coffee via IV.
But it is pretty funny regardless, and the joke hits home for a whole lot of medical professionals. We imagine a lot of nurses got a good chuckle out of all this!
We’re not ones to claim that everything on the internet is untrue, but let’s be honest — a lot of it is. Even when it comes to photo evidence, Photoshop exists. That said, in most cases, it’s not terribly difficult to pick out which photos and stories are real and which aren’t. In this article, not only will we take a look at some stories supported by obvious Photoshop, but just some of the worst Photoshopped pictures that people or companies have tried to pass off as real.
A Day at the Beach
We can’t all get away to the beach whenever we want to. However, we can edit a few pictures together to give the illusion that we can. A very, very poor illusion. Thanks to the wonders of Photoshop images on the internet, we’re convinced that everyone needs an art class to learn the basics of distance, scope, and relative size.
Though to be frank, shouldn’t it be obvious that this is wrong even to someone with no skill in art or photography whatsoever? The shortcoming seems to speak for itself, in our opinion.
Owning the Road
Speaking of people photoshopping themselves into ridiculous (and unrealistic) situations, we have this guy. He’s practicing wish-fulfillment in the only way he knows how. It doesn’t have to be good — it just has to be a picture of his face in a car that he wants.
And that’s what it is, isn’t it? So, mission accomplished, random guy on the internet. Maybe now, you’ll be able to really dedicate yourself to the money-saving scheme you need to actually afford this car.
Far From Nature
When you look at a photoshopped image, you can often tell if the person was seriously trying to pull one over on you or if they were just trying to be funny. The thing about this picture is, it looks like just enough care was taken in editing it that this guy might actually be trying to convince us.
It’s not working, of course, for a variety of reasons. We hope he wasn’t trying to use this as bragging rights with anyone, because that would totally backfire.
Some Cultural Miscommunication
When it comes to advertisements, apparently there are times when people feel that something is just missing. For this particular image advertising a grill, someone apparently felt the lake in the background was a bit too empty. Frankly, they could have added a boat, but the one they chose happens to be a gondola.
Needless to say, it’s the most inappropriate choice of boat to add. The only thing that would have been worse was an actual cruise liner, but hopefully, nobody would actually consider that to be a good idea.
Skip the Trip
Egypt can get pretty hot, especially around the pyramids. Why suffer through all that heat when you can just Photoshop your way there? That’s what this family did, and they look perfectly content, don’t you think? Now, if only they looked content in higher quality.
Unfortunately, when it comes to bad Photoshop vacations, high quality generally isn’t the first thing on most people’s minds. Oh well — at least that doesn’t really detract from how funny it is.
Gotta Spice it Up
Is your vacation photo a little too boring to share with the world? Well, there’s nothing like the addition of a rare sea creature to spruce it up! Who cares about relative size and all that? This is a very believable picture of a human next to a giant squid, we assure you.
That said, we’re pretty sure this image was submitted for a Photoshop contest intentionally, and in that regard, it certainly did a pretty good job.
A Bad Day in Fantasy Land
Perhaps it’s because people don’t like the idea of danger in real life, but there’s an oddly high number of Photoshop adventures out there that include serious danger and the potential for harm. We’re not entirely sure why this is the case exactly…
Either way, we can all understand why this image would be very bad if it were real. Thankfully, it’s just a silly little thing we can look at in our free time.
A Certain Dino Park…
Really, you’d think after the first few times, people would figure that an island full of dinosaurs is a bad idea. Just look at what happened to the poor guy in the background, thanks to the terrible idea some Photoshop wizard had.
In all seriousness, though, this is a pretty great edit. It made us laugh, and it was decently high quality for the low effort joke that it was. That’s more than we can say about a lot of things.
Fist of the North Star
When a picture involves a man fighting with a polar bear and winning, you know it’s fake. But hey, can anyone blame him for wanting to make his trip to Alaska seem a little more enticing and adventurous? Saying you fought a polar bear with your fists is pretty manly.
That said, the image itself is very clearly fake, though you probably don’t need to even see an image to know that no man can fistfight with a polar bear and come out on top.
Nice Camouflage Pants
The sad thing about this picture is that it isn’t ironic. Someone photoshopped this for a specific reason but didn’t realize that they forgot to actually include legs. Or maybe, they just thought people wouldn’t notice, though the comments make it obvious this isn’t the case.
Apparently, someone was either really lazy or just really bad at working their way around Photoshop. Honestly, either one doesn’t really justify how terrible this photoshopped picture is.
On Closer Inspection
At first, this picture doesn’t seem to have anything wrong with it. Until you take a second glance and realize that necks aren’t supposed to bend like that. In fact, that woman’s face is awfully close to that showerhead, in a way we’re pretty certain most people don’t do.
But, well, we aren’t the experts. Even so, we can tell that this woman’s neck shouldn’t bend this way, and that this image was totally photoshopped.
The Best Intentions
Leaving babies in water-filled bathtubs is a bad idea. So, we understand why these people felt the need to introduce the illusion of parental supervision to this image. However, they made a pretty serious oversight. We’re just saying, it’s hard to miss the problem here.
We’re just going to assume that someone really wasn’t paying attention, because that’s the only explanation for how this could have transpired.
Something Seems to Be Missing
We’ll give you guys a few seconds to figure out what the problem is in this photo. Just in case you somehow missed it, the problem is that this clothing company cut out the entire body of a horse when editing this picture. Frankly, we’re not sure how someone missed this before the ad went public, but here we are.
The worst part about this is the fact that a real brand used this picture to advertise their products. If the horse isn’t even really there, what else can we doubt about this picture?
Cause for Concern
Honestly, we understand why this woman would be worried — if you could see the Statue of Liberty at such an angle while flying, you would be in some serious trouble, and likely about to crash. We’re guessing that whoever photoshopped this image isn’t a pilot.
But hey, at least they made the woman in the picture look suitably concerned with the situation. Though that honestly just makes the whole mistake even stranger.
Too Much Effort
Pictures of food exist in restaurants because they often look more appetizing than the food itself really is. However, that only works if you take a really good picture. If you edit a bad one, well… let’s just say that people will pay more attention to that, don’t you think?
This restaurant felt the need to photoshop peas into the picture of their menu items. We don’t know why. Would it really have been such a big deal to actually put peas in the dish before snapping the picture?
Because Three Isn’t Enough
We aren’t going to pretend to know what tabloids are thinking at any point in time, because to us, it seems like they have no rhyme or reason for anything they do. Case in point, we have no idea why they felt it necessary to add an extra baby to this picture, by copying one that already existed.
Maybe they just felt that the story wasn’t juicy enough without some extra drama thrown in. Still, was this really necessary to make that happen? In reality, it’s really just unsettling.
A Little Something Extra
We have to ask ourselves what the point of some photoshopped images are. Take this one, for instance. What was wrong with the pose the man was already showing? What reason was there to alter the image and, ultimately, give the poor guy a third arm?
We would like to ask these Photoshop editors for their reason, for our own knowledge if nothing else. Who knows, maybe they thought it was dumb as well, but someone in charge told them it had to be this way.
New Fashion Statements
We all know that fashion ideals change with time, and that those ideals are usually some oddly unattainable thing. However, this advertisement really takes it to a whole new level. As you can see, someone did a terribly bad job editing this photo.
This goes beyond unreasonable expectations, it’s just plain crazy. Of course, we know that this was actually a mistake and not intended, but even so, what a mistake to make.
A Fistful of Dollars
When it comes to some instances of Photoshop, we can only say that some people just aren’t paying attention. Take this one, for example. The idea is that this woman made a profit selling this house, but they photoshopped her holding a bunch of one-dollar bills…
Could they not find bigger bills to give her? And if they were going to edit the money in like this, what was so hard about using money with a value that would actually make sense? We’re just at a loss, really.
The Power of Technology
At least with this picture from Samsung, you can tell they were trying and just made an oversight. After all, you have to look a little closely at this picture to really see the Photoshop mishap. If you couldn’t tell, it’s the very real difference between what’s on the device screen compared to the actual surroundings.
At least we can understand why and how someone could have missed this. It makes the whole fiasco a lot more forgivable when compared to some of the other ridiculous mistakes that made the list.
Wish You Were Here
Alright, let’s forget simple mistakes for now and go back to some folks who photoshopped ridiculously fabricated pictures. Apparently, this guy really wanted to go to Paris with Jennifer Lawrence. We all know that would never happen, so image manipulation is the next best thing, right?
We’re hoping he did this to be funny and maybe make some of his friends laugh, because no one could actually be convinced that this image is real.
All it Took
For hundreds of years, invaders couldn’t get over the Great Wall of China. And yet, it only took this woman a little bit of computer magic! That’s right, you too can Photoshop your way onto landmarks around the world, and it doesn’t even take that much time.
Unfortunately, she doesn’t have the computer lingo to have made everything look a little higher quality. Or just believable, for that matter. Either would have been nice.
Only One Breed
If you ever think that you’re being lazy, keep in mind that someone decided they should Photoshop the same picture of the same dog on this book three times for its cover. Yep, couldn’t even be bothered to find pictures of other dogs for a book about different dog breeds.
It is kind of amusing, though, which is probably why we figured it really deserved a spot on this list. Needless to say, it’s a prime example of what we’ve been making fun of this whole time.
Something We Don’t Recommend
Where do we even begin with this one? Aside from it being obviously photoshopped, we have to ask ourselves why this couple would plop themselves into the middle of the road. We kind of get what they were going for, but this just seems silly even beyond how ridiculous it is on principle.
Not to mention that the car in this picture is clearly in motion. We’re just saying — this is a whole new level of minimal effort. The worst part is, there’s just enough care taken in this edit to wonder if they were serious about this.
Making Life More Adventurous
Regular vacations can be boring. But, with the magic of Photoshop, they don’t have to be! This guy figured that plastering himself onto a beach was just a tad boring, and why settle for that when he could turn it into a pirate adventure?
At least his Photoshop is far better than most of the people we’ve mentioned on this list. Plus, he also made it clear that he was just trying to make a joke.
A New Species
Have you ever seen a dog with a neck this long? We’re going to go out on a limb here and say, probably not. Of course, that’s pretty understandable, considering exactly what we’re looking at here. Apparently, this poor dog’s head wasn’t high enough for public viewing?
Whatever the situation, it certainly seems like someone dropped the ball when it came to this advertisement. Then again, it probably did catch the attention of at least a few people.
Literally Every Possible Problem
We’ll just let you take a look at this one and try to pick out everything that’s wrong with it. As for us, we’re just going to lament how utterly ridiculous it is that serious advertisements can have such blatant, silly mistakes. We say that a lot on this list, but just look at this travesty!
We honestly just can’t help but wonder why a car has to be involved with this ad at all. Couldn’t they have just photoshopped a family in a living room?
Taller Than the Tower
Posting a picture of you with your hand above the Eiffel Tower doesn’t take a whole lot of creativity. Thankfully, Photoshop can help you make such a thing a bit more creative than it is on the surface, provided you have some cool ideas to make it happen.
This fella most certainly did. We applaud him for taking something traditionally cliché and making something a bit more entertaining out of it. Good job, random tourist.
And a Touch of Excitement
As we’ve pointed out previously, nothing adds some excitement to a photo like the addition of a super dangerous animal that could never actually be there. Such is the case with this image, and we do believe it fits the bill. After all, nothing can’t quite beat a Tyrannosaurus Rex when it comes to danger.
The positioning is a little weird, but at least it looks like they tried…to an extent. It’s much better than some of the other Photoshop work we’ve seen out there before.
The Deal With Necks
There’s just something about human anatomy that people often fail to get right when it comes to Photoshop, and we honestly have no idea why. Maybe they just don’t give as much attention to the neck as they really should, so they can’t really visualize how it looks.
But, considering this ad was for Chanel, this is really kind of inexcusable — don’t you think? Certainly, a company with that much money can afford to do better than this?
What’s the Price of Models These Days?
Frankly, the only excuse we can think of for this fiasco is the fact that whoever was selling these headphones thought a model would be too expensive. Although, couldn’t they have just asked a friend to throw the product on for a picture, or even just taken a pic of themselves wearing the headphones?
Really, what is the cost of a model these days anyway, especially if you only need them for a picture or two? Apparently, it’s more expensive than we actually think.
Swimming With Dolphins
Although swimming with dolphins is a popular vacation activity for some people, others don’t like the idea of it or perhaps can’t afford to do it. But, that’s why Photoshop exists, right? Editing an image such as this one may be the closest some people can get to actually swimming with a dolphin.
And while this photo doesn’t look quite that believable, we can only assume that it’s supposed to be a joke considering the guy on the dolphin is Australian comedian Chris Lilley.
The Next Shark Movie
Do you love shark movies? Do you love them so much that you just can’t get enough of them? Well, just Photoshop one into a surfing photo and you can tide yourself over until the next shark movie hits theaters. It’s not quite the same, but at least it’s something.
That said, this would be one huge shark, definitely not something you would see under pretty much any natural circumstances. But hey, aren’t plenty of shark movies like that?
When an Expert Plays
Believe it or not, we’re going to throw a curveball at you here, with an image that is obviously photoshopped, but in a good way! Yeah, surprising right? We all know this image is fake, but contrary to many of the examples we’ve shown so far, it actually looks good.
That said, maybe it doesn’t fit on this list, all things considered, but we felt kind of bad throwing all of this bad photoshopped images in your face. So, here’s the odd man out.
The Ocean Calls
Back at it again with the ocean and sea life. We don’t really know why people edit such scenarios so often, but maybe the nature of water makes it easier to photoshop animals into it? We don’t actually know much about this kind of thing, but consider it a layman’s observation.
Really, though — in our opinion, most ocean photos are already quite beautiful, so is there any reason to do things like this? Well, maybe some people are just bored.
The Poor Baby
If you see something wrong with this picture, that’s because there is something wrong with this picture. It’s the baby’s feet, in case you didn’t notice. Needless to say, there’s something to be said about the oversight people display when doing this kind of thing.
After all, it seems pretty obvious from the get-go that those feet are messed up. Anybody should have been able to notice that, and yet this mistake went completely under the company’s nose.
Danger Makes the Journey
As always, sometimes a Photoshop adventure is mostly reliant on the addition of something that would be dangerous in reality. It really goes a long way in making things seem more exciting. After all, who doesn’t like a waterfall, especially when you get to fall down one?
Well, nobody really wants that, of course. But, if you can just keep such things to fantasy instead of reality, then you don’t have as much to worry about.
Welcome to All
You know what setting doesn’t see zombies very often in fiction? Beaches. We don’t know if that’s because zombies aren’t supposed to be able to swim or because it would provide the good guys with a somewhat easy means of escape, but this couple decided to end the stereotype for one photo at least.
At least this wedding photo was decently photoshopped, which is something we don’t see too much of on this list. Of course, even good images aren’t believable just because they look nice — not that we think zombies exist in the first place, of course.
Pilot’s Worst Nightmare
It’s pretty obvious when someone is just trying to have fun with Photoshop. After all, part of the appeal is just being able to do and make ridiculous things. It’s not like you have to necessarily deceive anyone — just having fun with the photo editor is the goal of many folks.
Here is one such fella, editing a picture to depict a scenario no pilot would ever want — a bird interception of an aircraft. Those types of collisions are really dangerous, you know?
As Cool as Can Be
Frankly, skydiving is something that doesn’t really need to be made cooler, in our opinion. It’s already pretty darn cool. Even so, with the wonders of Photoshop, you can make it even cooler, if you really want to. This guy decided that such a thing was necessary, and honestly, we can’t disagree.
If you have to be cool, you may as well go all the way, even if it’s just made up — especially if it’s just made up, because then there’s no limitations or risks to worry about!
Improving the Home
You know what can make any house cool? An aquarium. Of course, we’re not talking about those small, lame aquariums. No, you need one that’s big enough to fit giant fish and whales. That’s the only way to truly elevate the coolness of one’s home in this modern era of aesthetics.
Seriously, though, this would be super cool if only it was practical or affordable to do. Oh well — guess we’ll just have to stick with those aforementioned small aquariums.
Utterly Terrifying Edits
Well, the good news is that we know this is an edit for sure. The bad news is that it’s still quite unsettling regardless. We can only. hope this guy just saw an opportunity and took it — and that this isn’t his way of vicariously expressing his distaste for one particular individual.
In other news, what kind of crazy person sits in such a precarious place anyway? That just seems especially hazardous no matter how you slice it.
Bear With Me
Despite the impressive editing skills, we can all tell this is fake because hopefully, no one would be crazy enough to go about their business as usual if a bear were around them. Most people have that level of common sense, after all.
Especially while holding such a tasty looking fish. This is one adventure that the dude probably wouldn’t have come back from in reality, but thankfully, it isn’t reality.
Questioning One’s Thoughts
Sometimes we have to ask ourselves what people are thinking when they make certain photo edits. Needless to say, we occasionally just feel a little concerned with the way some images turn out. Of course, we’re sure people are just trying to be funny, but still.
We’re just saying — this image raises some questions as to what the editor was thinking when creating this image. We hope they were just looking for a chuckle.
Hitting the Beach
Sometimes, wishful thinking is the best we can do when it comes to a vacation. And sometimes, a faked photo is the only way to really visualize it. This couple decided Photoshop was the only way they were going to make it to a tropical beach anytime soon.
Most of the comments are in Spanish, so we’re not exactly sure what everyone had to say about this, but we’re assuming that they pointed out how terribly photoshopped this was and how nobody could think it was real.
