You would think a "Mall Maintenance Shop" with the slogan "we can fix anything," would have a working doorbell, but apparently, that's not the case. Thankfully, there's a window on the door just in case knocking doesn't get any attention either. That is just one of the many oddly ironic things that people on the internet have come across. Other examples include: a Domino's delivery scooter spill, "American Freedom" that is made in China, and lots more. Continue reading to see them all. Click here for a few bonus images.
Thanks to this gadget, opening plastic clamshell packaging has never been easier. Unfortunately, not everyone has one of these tools handy, so the next best thing would be just a normal pair of scissors. Many would simply cut along the edges of the package, while some may have a temporary brain lapse and end up slicing the product itself into two, like this person with a USB cable. Other examples of people who have no idea include: locking your padlock keys onto itself, collecting bizarre "seashells", and more. Continue reading to see them all.

Some people really just don't care what others think, and a perfect example would be this person who decided to play Solitaire on their Windows XP machine, despite having a line of customers waiting. Other examples include: lugging around a full-sized radio instead of a portable music player, drinking wine while working out, and more. Continue reading to see them all.

The Simply put, its "Ratings Control Knob" up front lets users choose between a G to R rating for the profanity used, and as the rating is upped, the frequency of reminders are also increased.

The McLaren 570GT might be the best everyday supercar currently available, but that doesn't mean absurd options, such as the "Feather Wrap," aren't available to potential buyers. McLaren Special Operations spends 300-hours hand-layering these feathers, and use approximately 10,000 on each vehicle. "Our engineers and designers have long been inspired by nature in our aim to create the lightest and most aerodynamic shapes on the road. We call this biomimicry. And it was on a beautiful day walking around our Woking campus that one of us looked up at the birds circling our lake, then picked up a feather from the ground and placed it on a car. That turned into a conversation with the craftsmen and women at MSO that led to the creation of the Feather Wrap," said Robin Crane, McLaren's Biomimicry Specialist.

Remember the old Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote cartoons, and how the latter always painted fake tunnels? Well, a graffiti artist in Brazil thought it'd be smart to do just that on a brick wall, and as you can see, a Fiat drove directly into it. Fortunately, city officials painted over that optical illusion the very next day to prevent future accidents from occurring. Continue reading for more design FAILS that haven't been Photoshopped.

For those who haven't seen Mr. Bean, it's basically a British sitcom created by Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis, and starring Atkinson as "a child in a grown man's body". Bean rarely speaks, and the largely physical humour of the series is derived from his interactions with other people and his unusual solutions to situations. The pilot aired on January 1, 1990 and the rest is history. Recently, Photoshop gurus on the internet have decided to place Mr. Bean's face on famous characters, such as Wolverine.

Amazon Echo is great for simple tasks, but one man has transformed it into "Yorick", something worthy of a haunted house or horror movie. That's right, Mike McGurrin has managed to make Alexa talk in sync with a skull prop, and it's powered by Raspberry Pi running AlexaPi software. "I like to decorate for Halloween, including various talking skeletons that I've set up over the years. For Christmas 2015, my wife gave me a great 3 axis talking skull with moving eyes so I could upgrade one of the skeletons from just a moving jaw skull. Then a friend suggested that there had to be other applications for the rest of the year. This got me thinking, and when I saw the Alexa Billy Bass I knew what I had to do, and the Yorick project was born. I'm pretty happy with the result," said McGurrin.

Photographer / cameraman Garth De Bruno Austin was shooting a conservation film about rhino poaching in South Africa, when he was approached by a wild rhino. Thankfully, they knew each other, and the animal only wanted a belly rub. "If a rhino walks straight up to you while you're filming and wants some rubs... you better rub that rhino like your life depends on it! Lucky for me she left my URSA Mini 4K camera alone," said the photographer. Click here to view the first image in this week's things that look like other things gallery.

Hate when products place a sticker that either voids the warranty or forces you to accept the end user agreement when it's broken? Well, this person decided to game the system, literally, by opening this software disc from the bottom instead of breaking the seal. Technically, they should still be able to return it, should they not agree with something, or so we think. Continue reading for more people taking things too literally.
