Have you ever used a restaurant bathroom where the stalls are made out of semi-transparent frosted glass? Perhaps you've bought a pool float only to discover that it bears an uncanny resemblance to a pantyliner? Or maybe you've bought a garden gnome salt shaker that looks suspiciously like a member of the Ku Klux Klan? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you've clearly fallen victim to bad designs. As you can see from this hilarious list, there's plenty more from where these epic fails came!

From interior design fails, and town planning disasters to product design screw-ups and architectural mind-bogglers, the pictures below will make you bury your head in your hands as you try to figure out just what the hell some people were thinking. Don't forget to vote for these atrociously funny fails, and if you like what you see then click here and here for more funny photos of hilarious design fails.

Well... they couldn't possibly show every hole. So they went just for the ear holes. Fair enough.

This pic makes me very uncomfortable. How stupid can someone be to design, produce and/or buy it? I have no words.
