In a world where we're constantly being told what to do, it's often tempting to rebel against the system and stop doing as we're instructed. But as you can see from this hilarious list compiled by Bored Panda, there's another, more subtle way to fight back against the establishment. How? By following the rules as literally as possible! Don't know how? Then scroll on for some covert anti-establishment inspiration. Don't forget to vote for the funniest!

Translation: My life here isn't quite good... the working environment is bad, and there's no such thing as sufficient welfare. But don't worry, only about a dozen people are severely injured everyday. I try my best to be careful. We opened a small bodega and the business is great. Even though I don't know much English, it isn't hard to understand these white people. Hopefully I'll achieve something! I'd work really hard and take care of myself... are you guys doing well? I miss you a lot, wish we can see each other again...

Free Enterprise! Nothing in the world beats it, and organizations/governments can't squelch it.

This is exactly how we got to this place in time. No one is being racist, sorry. The Indian (whether he's native or not) clearly took this picture and endorsed it, else he wouldn't be standing there writing. Now, he thought this was clever enough so maybe you all should too. If everyone wasn't so busy policing each other and looking so nasty things to say to each other then this country wouldn't be as screwed up as it is now. You don't need to be butthurt over this photo...laugh.
