A massively popular social media account, it shares various nonsensical pics and signs that befuddle and bemuse Instagram users. We’ve collected some of their funniest pics that will probably make you scratch your head and ask, ‘What?!’ Check ‘em out below, and don’t forget to upvote your faves!

The ‘Emotional Club’ social media page has almost 1 million followers. At the time of writing, a whopping 986k online users followed the account. It’s easy to see why.

The content is very different from what you’d usually find while scrolling through Instagram.

Instead of ‘perfectly’ framed and photo-edited pics, you see raw, unfiltered snapshots from people’s daily lives. All taken when they’ve randomly stumbled upon something that made the rational parts of their brains short-circuit.

Frankly, the number of weird signs and sentences you can spot around any town is surprising. It just takes a keen eye.

The founder of the page posts new pics on a regular basis, so there’s nearly always something freshly bizarre to pique your interest. And it really gets your imagination all fired up: what exactly is the context behind these photos? What the everlovin’ heck is going on? Who wrote these things? Are they regular people, just like us? What's the deal here?

Bored Panda covered nonsensical internet content a number of times before. One of the things that we found was that absurdity works hand-in-hand with humor.

They form a symbiotic relationship that helps elevate a pic or screenshot to meme status. Without humor, however, the photo might not get all that much attention: it needs to stick in the audience’s mind somehow. And laughter is key, here.

I don't know how to life neither. Sometimes, you just got to whack the board off the table and watch the pieces fly everywhere

Another aspect of absurd and nonsensical internet content is just how much freedom it grants the audience. Everyone seeing the peculiar photos is at liberty to interpret them the way they want to.

Since there’s not much context to go on, each and every one of us creates a small story in our heads, trying to rationalize what we’re seeing (and why). The memes become personal. There’s no burden of descriptions, explanations, and on-photo calls to action.

Whatever the drawbacks of social media (and believe us, there are plenty—from shortening attention spans to lowered self-esteem), one positive aspect that it brings is that there’s a far lower barrier to entry for creators.

In other words, if you’re a photographer or an artist, it becomes incredibly easy to share your work with a global audience.

I love Mr Rogers! But my favorite was Romper Room! Remember the song? “Romper stomper bomper boo! Tell me, tell me..is that you? Oh I see Mary and Billy …and Oh! I see you!” And I remember watching The Gentle Giant and most importantly Captain Kangaroo! And did anyone really have the picture pages to Bill Colby’s tv show in the 70’s called Picture Pages? We were poor so we didn’t send away for them. It was about 1977 that I watched that in kindergarten before school. Oh my gosh….I just outEd myself as old! Lol

However, not everyone feels comfortable sharing their own work. Some are anxious about how others will judge them. Others don’t believe that what they have to offer is anything special or original. And creating your own original memes can mean that you have to get used to rejection and failure: it takes practice to hook you chosen audience and reel them in with your chose brand of humor.

There was a park bench in my area with a plaque saying "In loving memory of [name]. If you aren't holding a beer, please sit elsewhere." Then some jerk ripped it off the bench and broke it in several pieces. I found all but two of those pieces and, out of compassion for the family, I glued it back together and tracked down one of the poor guy's friends to offer the repaired plaque back. Plot twist: THE GUY WASN'T EVEN DEAD! He had just moved away! He and his friends were very pleased to see the plaque back in one piece, though, and told me I could keep it. It's on my kitchen wall to this very day.

The key here is to focus on the unique personal perspective that you can offer the world. Biting the bullet and putting yourself and your creativity out there is a step that definitely requires courage.

However, the potential rewards can potentially be great, whether you plan on becoming a full-time creator or simply want to share a few fun and funky pics with everyone else. It’s essential to be unapologetically genuine. There’s always an audience for whatever you’re good at.

"I feel like I've been cheated out of something but I don't know what it is." My favorite graffiti ran length of wall on E Street in San Bernardino. It was there for ~10 years. Local gangs didn't paint over it. City didn't remove it. Appears it resonated with everyone.

So, Pandas, which of these memes did you enjoy the most? Which ones confused the heck out of you? Were there any that really made your noggin jog, forcing you to create a backstory (frankly, any backstory) to explain what you saw? We'd absolutely love to hear your thoughts on this, so why not drop by the comments to share your opinions.

Ha, that was the name of the angry ex girlfriend's salon in "Blues Brothers". Man Carrie Fisher was awesome in that movie.

You laugh, but I actually DID dream about being asleep last night. People in the dream kept telling me to stop lying down because I was supposed to be doing something. But I didn't get where I am today by listening to that kind of negativity.
