Enter the Things That Are Not Aesthetic Facebook page full of slightly off-putting and ridiculously strange pictures.

If there's a prize, you should give it to the 2nd place winner. Honestly though, it doesn't matter who submitted the design, just as long as it's really good.

While we may feel uncomfortable looking at terrible objects or unaesthetic design, it's intriguing how we also find them weirdly attractive. Funny and perplexing pictures are the perfect attention trap—once your eyes land on them, it’s hard to look away.

An influencer marketing agency Mediakix explained that in the past couple of years, meme accounts that appeal to audiences of all types seem to be on the rise. One reason for their popularity is simply their format. Funny pictures are easy "bites" of content that can be consumed in mere seconds and always feel fresh for the audiences. 

"Compared to more traditional forms of media like news articles or YouTube videos, memes require little time and effort to consume and understand," they explained. They’re designed for our fast-paced lives and can give us temporary shelter from the troubles we may have in our lives.

Another important factor is their content. The majority of such accounts target Millennial audiences and, according to Statista, they were the largest generation group in the U.S. in 2019, adding up to 72.1M people. "Unlike other social media influencers that create content around specific niches like beauty, family, or sports," meme accounts also tend to function on a broader scale. That’s why they appeal to many different users instead of just targeting one kind of Millennial.

However, there also seems to be a growth of category-specific pages. "Themed meme accounts toe that fine line between being particularly relatable to a specific group of people, but universal enough to attract a large following," Mediakix wrote.

So when you take a look at pages and accounts like the one we feature in this list, you can’t help but think that the younger generations have a seriously weird sense of humor. Turns out, Millennials and Gen-Z were brought into a world where to live an easy life and find a well-paying job is harder than it was for their parents or grandparents. Well, if you’re drowning in student debt and have to give up on the idea of buying a house one day, the world can start to seem like a pretty dark place.

According to Elizabeth Bruenig, one reason why Millennials' sense of humor is so dark and surreal could be that the world has stopped making sense to them. "Long-lasting careers seem out of reach; millennials are told to go to college so they can make money, but mostly they just amass debt and then job-hop in hopes of paying it off. In the meantime, they put off getting married, having kids, buying houses and so on. And waiting feels like — well, waiting," she explained.

It really shouldn’t surprise us that the increasing complexity of our lives impacts how we see the things around us. The meaning itself might start to slip away, and that’s why Millennials often find themselves immersed in a peculiar and chaotic form of comedy.

"Rather than trying to restore meaning and sense where they’ve gone missing, the style aims to play with the moods and emotions of an illegible world," Bruenig continued. "In a way, it’s a digital update to the surreal and absurd genres of art and literature that characterized the tumultuous early 20th century."

However, even if we’re attracted to unaesthetic things because we want to laugh at our way of living, it doesn’t mean that we can't see the joy in them. As they say, taste is subjective, and while some people could be appalled by what they see shared on this Facebook page, others can find it even inspiring. After all, there’s some amount of beauty in any imperfection, only if you’re willing to see it.
