So these two are kissing – so what? And what’s that in her hand? Is that a pan with a pancake in it? What’s with all the other people, some of whom are carrying their own pans? A mystery that might never be solved unless we’ve already solved it.
This picture was taken during the 1966 Shrove Tuesday Pancake Race in Olney, Buckinghamshire, England. Obviously. It’s the most famous pancake race in the world, and the goal is to run to the finish line with a pancake in your pan, flipping the whole way. This guy has his own kind of race in mind, as we can see.
Give Spring a Break
The type of holiday photos you have from spring break are ones you'll always remember, but maybe not ones you'd want to show your parents. This picture is a classic case of photobombing; it's just not 100% clear who is photobombing who.
Was someone trying to take a picture of a young man being taken into custody and was interrupted by the girls, or maybe the girls were interrupted by the police? We'll never know, but we bet there's an amazing story behind this pic. Like this being a scene out of "Baywatch, the Next Generation," where the bathing suits are no longer red.
Look, if You Know, Please Tell Us
No, we have no idea what is happening here other than a couple of guys on a bike, and one of them is carrying a box of something. And he has a big towel or dress or something on his head. Maybe they’re headed to the beach or the local pool and only have so many hands to haul stuff with.
Maybe it’s a hot day out, and the guy in front is trying to protect his sunburn from the day before. Other than that, we’re all out of ideas. Maybe they’re just headed to the Checkers to pick up some buy one get one...big Buford? What does that say? We’re just going to assume they mean a burrito. That’s better than any alternative.
We Didn’t Know They Needed That
We know for a fact that horses don’t need gasoline to run. In fact, ask people that have spent a lot of time around those animals, and you’ll learn that they seem to produce far more gas than they should, even if you can’t use it to power a vehicle.
Why would a horse and buggy stop at a gas station? Maybe the guy driving it was headed in to get a package of gummy worms, maybe they just needed to stop to give the horse a break, or maybe they needed to wash the windshield. Whatever the reason, they probably don’t need to be taking up space right in front of a gas pump. Then again, it doesn’t look very busy.
Oh, Good, You’re Here
Cats usually like to act like they know exactly what is going on. They’re in control. Nothing is going to upset them. Until the smallest, tiniest thing happens, of course, and then they get very upset. Maybe you took five minutes too long getting their food to them, or you covered them in Cheez-its, or whatever is going on here happened.
We think that the cat’s left paw, which is on our left, is stuck to the scratching post, while the right paw is stuck to the bed for some reason. A cat should usually just be able to retract its claws when this sort of thing happens, but that tactic wasn’t in this kitty’s bag of tricks. That’s why the humans are there – otherwise, cats would get stuck and they’d just stay there forever.
