These Cursed Images Are So Creepy They're Funny
What exactly makes an image "cursed"? It's a picture that appears mysterious, even creepy, due to its disturbing content, poor quality or a combination of both. It's an image that raises more questions than answers. In this photo, for instance, why is this little girl allowed to play with tarantulas? Where did they come from? Who encouraged this posed, ironic shot of the four of them drinking tea?
As families take photos over decades, they're bound to find a cursed image or two in the family photo album. Luckily for those interested in cursed images, there's an entire Twitter page dedicated to the subject. A lot of the photos are haunting, while some are downright funny memes. Check out these cursed images that are so outrageous we couldn't help but find them funny.
Noodle Vision Engaged
We're getting claustrophobic just looking at this. This is the most Italian way to go we've ever seen. Death by pasta. Not eating it, breathing it. We can smell the fettuccini water now.
Honestly, That Looks Pretty Comfy
Trying to figure out what to do with all your skinny jeans from the 2010s? Always dreamed of lounging on top of a dry octopus? This cursed image is your answer, as is therapy.
What Are They All Looking At?
Ghosts. They're looking at ghosts. Fortunately, they don't seem particularly upset, so it's probably just Casper. NBD.
Nothing Lovelier Than a Tour of the Mouth
That's enough, Ms. Frizzle. This time you've gone too far. You already dragged your class to outer space and the bottom of the sea, but the inside of a mouth is where we draw the line. Do you even have insurance for a field trip to space? Your premiums must be off the charts.
And What Goes Up...
When you're at work and ask, "What's that smell?" now you can be grateful that someone just microwaved a leftover tuna melt. Still bad, but would you rather have a meeting with the stench of an ignited, portable toilet?
This House Belongs to Them Now
I don't care what nostalgia pages from the 1990s want you to believe: Furbies are terrifying. If a story broke that Furbies were actually small demons masquerading as fluffy toy robots, we wouldn't be shocked. If you see this on your staircase, our only suggestion is: run.
Are We Interrupting Something?
Yes. Ronald McDonald is like Santa Claus. All the mall Santas have to get together to get their story straight, or kids would totally catch on. Same thing here — only so much creepier.
The Resemblance Is Uncanny
This cursed image could be considered art — the key phrase being "could be."
Honey, the Cat’s Sideways Again
Now, this image isn't cursed. Every cat owner knows they come with Velcro pre-installed.
We Have a Lot of Questions About This Funny Cursed Image
Alright, son. We're not mad. Just tell your father and I what happened. Seriously, the suspense is killing us.
There’s No Such Thing as Too Much Insulation
Doctors' recommendations for good sleep hygiene:
- Avoid screens before bed
- Install blackout curtains
- Set a consistent bed time
- Try listening to white noise
If it works, it works.
You Probably Don’t Want to Touch Those
They have to be cursed, right? The fact that this mass graveyard of forgotten toys is just laying there with threatening red writing on the wall points in that direction.
Well, That's Unsettling
Forget ordering a creepy mask on Amazon. Just open the fridge. These tortillas could be even scarier with salsa.
This Is Somehow Worse Than Tide Pods
We never thought we'd say this, but Taco Bell seems like a safer way to clean out your system.
More Tea, Mrs. Nesbitt?
We want to know where this little girl is now. If she hasn't been eaten, we'd like to hire her to come catch the spider that's been lurking in the corner of our bedroom for a while.
That’s All Windows XP Is Good for Now
This is so not a cursed image. This is genius. No knife? No problem. All your old CDs double as salami slicers.
Whatever You Do, Do Not Climb Them
We can't say we're strong believers in the occult. A flight of stairs to nowhere is just a flight of stairs. Nothing spooky about that.
But there are some old wives' tales that claim people who climb the stairs go missing. Others who've tried it report feeling uneasy or nauseous as if there's an evil presence lurking. We'll avoid them just in case.
Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?
Cursed image? Nah. Parents just got tired of telling their kids to stop jumping off the swing set. They strategically placed the neighborhood playground right next to the graveyard for a built-in mortality reminder. Be careful, kids.
We Are All That Screaming Child
What is happening here, and why? Dear god, why? We're pretty sure we've had this nightmare at least once.
When Your Homie Comes Over to Chill
E.T.? Is that you? Wow. We thought aging on Earth was rough.
No. Just No.
We're still unsure if those are lobsters or some other type of cursed crustacean, but no. This is like a spring break dare gone horribly wrong. We'll take the seven shots of cheap tequila instead.
The True Meaning of 'Copypasta'
Behold, the work of either an enterprising 5-year-old or a very drunk undergrad. The motivation for both: Increase the spaghetti. Very messy, but kind of brilliant, if only someone would bother inventing a 3D printer for food.
Terrifying or Brilliant?
It took us a minute to figure out what we were looking at. This cursed image does, in fact, feature a man sipping a cocktail straight into the belly of a stuffed koala. It just goes to show that even cute Halloween costumes can be horrifying, given the right execution.
I Always Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me
We heard you're single and turning 40. Let us in.
This Is Our Cue to Leave
If the decor isn't off-putting enough, the giant Sesame Street character should be.
We're Not Sure Where to Look
There's so much going on here. Who's idea was this? We want to know who looked at an old TV and thought, "Upgrade to a flatscreen? That's a waste of money. Let's mount it on the side of a cow statue instead."
Won't We All?
Frosty, why? It's the holidays. Spread Christmas cheer, not existential fear, m'kay?
It’s Become Sentient and Seeks Revenge
If we had to guess what happened, we'd bet that someone tried to beat the world record for largest pizza before realizing mom's oven wasn't going to get the job done.
There’s Plenty of Beefcake in the Fridge
Kids, what do you want for dinner? You know what, never mind. We're getting takeout.
Sorry, We Didn't Know This Stall Was Taken
We're not sure we want to know the backstory here. If we found a lifelike plastic leg in a toilet, though, that would be our cue to leave.
