Sometimes you come upon a situation or creation that stops you in your tracks and makes you think, “but why?” It can be of your own doing and something went awry, usually in a DIY project, or it can be the product of skewed logic from another person. Yet, either way, it will always give you a moment of pause in confusion and utter bewilderment. Here are 70 situations that will have you questioning, “but why?”
1. Crocheted Nails
These nails are meant for those that love fabric crafts, but is putting crochet on their nails really necessary? These nails must get ruined with ever hand wash. Hopefully, she is still washing her hands regularly in spite of her nails.
2. Jean Chair
I am always one that supports recycling as much as you can, but this is where I would draw my limit. She upholstered a chair from an old pair of jeans. They must have been her favorite pair, to go to such lengths to keep the jeans in some capacity. Now she gets to sit in those jeans everyday if she wants.
3. Fashion Statement
Did you ever think that a Sprite liter bottle could make such a fashion statement? It is not the most friendly of materials to have on your face though, seems like it would be a bit scratchy. He does not seem to care, he just made his own “fashionable” glasses for cheap and he had some Sprite to drink during the DIY project.
4. Sid Is All Grown Up
Remember Sid from the original Toy Story movie? This is the type of Valentine’s Day I could picture him giving to his future wife. That lamp is just asking to give nightmares to anyone in the house. There is nothing more terrifying than needing a lamp in the dark and turning on this lamp. Those lit up eyes could haunt you.
5. Camping Inside
Who needs to buy a nightstand, when you can just bring in a log? That was the thinking for this person. If their stuff, glasses, wallet and phone, can be put on it, it’s functionality works just fine. This is a way to bring the outdoors inside your home, if you want to find a silver lining about this log/nightstand.
6. Tricked Ya
This has to be the meanest trick played on every shopper in this mall. They made their stairs look like it would be an escalator, but nope it is just stairs. This is one store that is forcing everyone to get their steps in. They said you need 10,000 a day after all.
7. Boot Scoot and Burgers
Do fries come with that shake? That is a question that probably gets asked on the dance floor when wearing these cowboy boots. It is unclear why these boots were made but those boots were made for walking… straight to the nearest diner.
8. Can You Fit?
Would you be able to fit in this door? I am guess the answer is probably no for the majority of us. What is the point of this room if no one can get inside? The reason why this door was created will remain elusive to all.
9. Smart As My School
School is the place we go to learn, except if you attend this dining hall at NYU. They seem to be confused on what a vegetarian diet actually is. A bigger concern is why students did not tell them to fix their sign.
10. Layer By Layer
Burgers are meant to be devoured in bites, not layers. What is the point of the lettuce or tomatoes without enjoying them with the meat and bun? I do not trust this person, solely on the way they eat their burgers.
11. Bad Listeners
The sign is telling people to not walk amongst the flowers. If someone could not read it, the sign made sure to even create a visual too. Still, everyone decides to ignore the sign and wreck the flowers they have all come to look at. Come on people!
The box came completely leaking and sounds of broken glass inside. The problem must have been solved by wrapping it in a bag right? What a bummer to come home and receive this package.
13. Broken Up?
This boyfriend learned the hard way that his girlfriend does not like when he ignores her texts. He came home to his television completely smashed up. He had a bad shift at work, so he was not texting and then had to come home to a broken television. He is having one rough day.
14. Going For A Walk
We are all the second man in these photos. Why are you walking a bunny good sir? His face is full of confusion, just like ours would be if we saw this in person. We got to say, it is quite a cute bunny though.
The owner if this car did not need to write that the door is blue, it obviously is not. Instead of accepting that it is not, they must have a complex over their one silver door. Hey, it makes everyone who reads the door chuckle so that is one positive.
16. Snapchat Phenom
Everyone in this city could not get enough of their own personal bird man. So many people started to SnapChat what he was doing that he blew up the city on the Snapchat map. This is his claim to fame and no one could even see his real face.
17. Date Night
Some people need to learn that it is okay to have some alone time. This person has not learned that lesson yet, so he created the most terrifying date ever. It would be better to be alone that to have to eat next to the scary Furby with skeleton hands.
18. Baby Butt
Would you eat of a bowl that had a baby’s butt imprint in it? Yes, it has been cleaned but it is still plain weird. Poor Harrison, this bowl is going to shown to every potential significant other that he brings home.
19. But How?
Instead of asking “but why,” this situation makes me ask “but how?” How were they able to install this into their house. The question of why is still in play because why did they want it inside in the first place? So many questions and no answers.
When the internet jokes occurred about Sean Spicer hiding in bushes, this person made sure to keep the joke going as long as possible. They went the extra mile and even created their own hiding Sean Spicers. This person went through a lot of time and work for this random project.
21. Another Person’s Trash…
They say another person’s trash is another man’s treasure. Someone created their own custom lamp decorated with sticks, only to throw it away. A random stranger made sure to save it and bring it home. The stick lamp creation lives another day to shine brightly.
She thought it was going to be a smart idea to bring some bangs into style, but she did not think it fully through. What she was hoping for as having the same length throughout went completely awry. Her face at the end says everything without saying a word.
23. Watermelon Foam
Never trust a watermelon that starts to foam. They had not even cut into it yet, when foam started to pour out all on its own. When a watermelon foams it means it is rotten and/or fermenting. I may never trust another watermelon again.
24. Blinded By The Antlers
Instead of realizing the design had gone a bit wonky with the antlers being put in the reindeer’s eyes, they just kept making them. If you do not mind this creepy design, it will make great reindeer decor for you. It was pretty brave to sell them at all with that mistake.
25. Gotta Take This Call
26. Spell It Out
Out of all the words to spell with blocks in a children’s book, they still chose hepatitis. Most children will not realize it but every adult that has to read the book to their child will. It just makes you wonder, why the illustrator would choose the word, why not butterfly or baseball?
27. Toy Truck
When this person stumbled upon this multi colored, tiny truck they only had one thought,
“I think I found a car that I painted as a child.”
This is wrong on so many levels. First, at the very core of it, it is rude to the passenger behind her. Second, why would she want her hair with three strangers behind her? There are some people in this world, no one will be ever be able to understand.
29. So Close, So Far
It was a simple request of shutting the door as they left. Instead of honoring that request, they kept it open just a bit. This is a parent’s version of their child being able to shut their down, you really never get to fully shut it.
Four positive pregnancy tests does not mean four babies. Do I need to repeat that for anyone in the back? This friend probably had to have a long talk with their pregnant friend. The best advice is to buy her all the baby book’s they can, she seems to need some extra advice.
31. Bottle Tab Fashion
This man is creating his own fashion line, clothes fully made out of beer and soda tabs. It seems as if he is the only person that is ready for this new fashion look. This is one outfit that is heavy and hot to wear.
32. Flexibility of Fingers
Just because you can do something does not mean you should. This is the perfect example of something that does not need to ever happen, holding a soda can by the other side of his hand and fingers. Just looking at this picture gives me the heebie-jeebies.
33. Gone Bad
Usually when milk goes bad, you throw it out but this person had a different idea in mind. When he said the milk went bad, he meant it. Their roommate came home from work to find the bad milk in the refrigerator. Their roommate must have a lot of time on their hands.
34. Robots Reading
Robots are hiding amongst us and this one has been caught red-handed. This bus rider was reading a newspaper but at a closer look, his newspaper is one for robots only. Good luck everyone, the robot takeover is sooner than we thought.
35. Amber Nails
This is the ultimate “but why” situation. Yes, in theory a person can put a dead insect in amber on their nail, but why would anyone want to? She literally has a dead insect incased on her fingernail. This is one DIY project that should not have been created.
36. Bean Bag
Bean bags are not a chair of the past, at least for this person. They created their own bean bag chair with old jeans. If this is the future of bean bag chairs, we should all agree to let bean bag chairs be a relic of our past.
37. A Christmas Story
If you have watched A Christmas Story then you will remember this lamp. Everyone in the movie, besides the dad, knew this was a tacky lamp. Well, there is at least one real person that agrees with that fictional dad. He created an entire DIY project to create his own and his family is probably reacting just like the family in the movie.
38. Candle Holders
Candle holders can be found at most dollar stores, but that did not stop someone from creating their own with forks. These candle holders are not only random but also not functional. Your table is going to get candle wax all over with these DIY candle holders.
39. Hoodie Wig
She wanted to put the hood of her sweater up and still show off her wig, so she put the wig over her hoodie. It must have been a cold day and she wanted her hoodie closer to her ears because otherwise this does not make a whole lot of sense. To each their own, I guess.
40. Flower Urinals
This establishment tried their hardest to create a prettier ambiance in the mens restroom. Yet, it is not a pretty sight to have all these flowers have to be used, poor flowers. A for effort, but next time put the flower decor on the walls and only for decor.
