Everybody loves cute baby animals, but they become all the cuter when they’re paired with the adult versions of themselves. Inspired by SteveV91′s post on Reddit, we created a new-and-improved list of images of adult animals with their baby mini-me counterparts that will definitely tug at your heart strings.

Nathan Ripperger, a U.S. designer and video producer, has come up with a hilarious way to catalog the bizarre and hilarious conversations one can have when raising children. His series of posters, called “Things I’ve Said To My Children,” shares some of the fantastic things that Ripperger has had to say to his children with us all. “These posters[...] feature a phrase that I believe the only reason they left my mouth was [due] to my children.”
Have you ever had difficulties trying to get a baby to sit down and pose for a picture? It’s a huge headache now, but it was even harder for mothers in the Victorian era, when camera technology made posing for photographs difficult. These weird photos will show you how these mothers got their kids to calm down to get their pictures taken. Babies had to be held by their mothers who, with the best of intentions, hid themselves in quite peculiar and creepy ways so they could calm their child and also stay out of the shot.
Some of the kids on this list, however, sound so creepy that you have to wonder whether they just might be growing up to be terrifying psychopaths. This list was collected from mommies and daddies posting the weird stuff they’ve heard their kids say on Reddit. The Reddit thread is full of stories about seemingly possessed kids, kids who see dead people, and kids who are harboring murderous tendencies.
There is now a Twitter account called @FacesPics dedicated to just that – pictures of random stuff that looks like it has a face. Seeing faces in random objects is called pareidolia, a term for giving random or unrelated stimuli (mostly vision or sound) meaning. Many theorize that pareidolia is a hard-wired mental feature that has helped us quickly recognize and identify human faces and make sense of the world around us. Judging by these pics, all it really takes is two eyes and a mouth to make a face.
Moscow-based designer Ilya Kalimulin has created a series of images imagining what the weirdest products by well-known companies and brands might look like. His imagined products have gained a viral following on a number of Russian-language art and deign blogs, which in turn have gathered the ideas of other creative designers as well.
French photographer Sophie Gamand decided to create a natural and very cute photo series of dogs getting wet during their grooming procedures. What makes the fittingly-titled Wet Dog photo series so funny is how realistically these little fellows react to water and shampoo. Some fur balls remain stoic and pretend that everything’s OK, but others don’t even try to hide their emotions, and you can see the misery, surprise and even anger in their eyes. Don’t worry, though – not a single doggy was harmed during this photoshoot.
New York-based artist George Ferrandi has put our tolerance for strangers to the test in her quirky and fun photo project “It Felt Like I Knew You.” The premise of Ferrandi’s project is simple – she pretends to fall asleep on a total stranger on the NY subway system, and her associate Angela Gilland captured their reactions on her phone. Some commuters let Ferrandi snooze, while others either woke her or moved their seats.
What if Isaac Newton had Instagram when he discovered gravity, or if DaVinci posted Instagram teasers while working on the Mona Lisa? This is the idea behind Histagrams, a site created by designers Gusto NYC and Gavin Alaoen that features instagrams posted by some of history’s biggest players. What if Isaac Newton had Instagram when he discovered gravity, or if DaVinci posted Instagram teasers while working on the Mona Lisa?
Damien Greenhalgh, Labour County Councillor for Glossop and Charlesworth, became a Twitter legend after he posted a picture showing “How to look like Batman, using your cat.” The hilarious photo has already received more than 19K retweets, and the guy was named “CATMAN”. It’s not clear whether it was inspired by the popular cat-bearding trend, but it will definitely inspire a new trend!
You’d think that a food company would want to do some research to make sure that their food isn’t ridiculed or doesn’t seem repulsive, but some of these guys don’t seem to have gotten that memo. Some of these are lost in translation errors – we can only hope that that Chinese food company isn’t selling shredded children. Others, like the Brits’ faggots in sauce, seem funny only because modern slang has re-appropriated their names.
Just yesterday, award-winning U.S. photographer and animal trainer Carli Davidson published her book “Shake.” The much-awaited photo collection features close-up portraits of dogs in all of their drooling glory. The series is hilarious because it gives us an unexpected (and funny-looking) glance at the subjects’ personalities. Lips smack, ears flop, and drool flies.
