Some people are optimists, some are pessimists, and some are realists. Illustrator Eduardo Salles is a realist, and you can tell from his comics.

The Mexico City-born illustrator is known for creating brutally honest comics about modern life. From the brutal truth of texting to the reality of dieting - Salles illustrates it all in his comics in an utterly cynical yet hilarious way. Keep on scrolling to check out his comics, translated from Spanish to English by Bored Panda, and don't forget to vote for your favorites!

Whoa. What's with all the down votes on this page? These are all very true points. It pains me so much how unhealthy the food we eat is.

This one is so true. People don't want you to be who you are and will do everything to make you like everyone else. Stay strong people and don't change who you are!

If you learn a technical trade skill, you may well be better off. Heating/air, plumbing, and electrician, are just three that pay very well. And the biggest plus is that you can easily go into business for yourself. I love the knowledge I gained from my bachelors(history), and masters(physical anthropology), but my PhD is in Mechanical Aptitude. Guess which one I use for making a living? :D

Well, the nightstand leg does not kiss the foot, but mostly the little toe. I think that the only reason that toe is still being grown on our foot; to make out with the nightstand.
