The Terror Twins
The Shining’s terror twins costume is a favorite for many and not without a reason. The costume is easily recognizable, low in terms of maintenance, and fits perfectly with the Halloween bill. This is inarguably one of the best renditions of the costume that we will ever get to see.
These two friends decided to dress up as The Shining twins, complete with the wigs, the dresses, and even the knee-high socks and sandals! These are two souls we would not wish to cross paths with during the night!
Sleepy Hollow is a great story to take the cue from while searching for costume inspirations. The Headless Horseman is a popular choice as it is truly spooky. Though it’s difficult to fashion a costume that is supposed to make the wearer appear headless, a nice photo can’t be missed to commemorate the occasion!
This photo has been processed using some slick technical tools (Photoshop has been used on the head portion). Nevertheless, the production quality of the costume and background is good enough to warrant a place on this list.
A Human Cat Tree
What should we do when our house is swarming with furry pets, and we want to include them in our costume? Easy, transform into a tree and have them climbing all over!
This extremely creative costume by this gentleman may not be spooky, but it is funny and a downright genius move! Even the cats seem to be having a ball scampering in and out of the many holes in the tree.
Movies, TV shows, and books come into the spotlight a lot during this spooky pumpkin season. This has people rushing to pick up the popular costumes from their favorite franchises. But, sometimes, the best costumes are the rarest ones!
This couple decided to pay homage to one of history’s most popular artworks, Van Gogh’s Starry Night! Everything about this recreation is perfect, from the iconic swirls on the lady’s dress to the painted red beard on the man.
Schrute it Up
In real life, we may not be able to ever visit the Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton office, but it’s easy to recreate some of our favorite characters that love selling paper there.
Thanks to Dwight, we all know that identity theft is no joke! But, this gentleman’s costume of Dwight Schrute is spot-on for once, making it into a truly amazing joke! It is a Dwight party and the password is Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica!
Donning the costume of a villain on Halloween definitely raises the stakes. After all, one turns into a boogeyman on the night made for such other-worldly beings!
This person’s rendition of one of Ghostbusters’ villains, Vinz Clortho, is worthy of applause! The attention to detail is absolutely brilliant. From the facial expression to the open, untucked shirt, this Louis Tully impression looks ready to make a team of ghostbusters cry!
Spider-Man is, without a doubt, one of the top five costumes chosen every year on Halloween. Our friendly neighborhood hero has been ruling the costume stores for decades, for people of all ages!
Each year, Marvel brings out innumerable sophisticated spidery costumes, and their production quality only gets better. Just take a look at this amazing costume — seems like it was taken from the sets of the Avengers movie itself!
A Villainous Troll
This is another villain that takes to the streets on Halloween, and it’s a costume that is certain to turn heads at every party! This is what this Archibald Snatcher costume promises to do!
By itself, this costume is scary enough, thanks to the expression on The Boxtrolls’ villain’s face. However, this particular copy is even more ghastly in the best possible way! Ruthless and arrogant, this costume is all that and more.
The Wet Bandits
The main villains, or the underrated comedic elements of Home Alone, are the wet bandits. Harry and Marv have committed enough robberies to have earned that nickname, but it turns out that all their experience was not enough to beat out little Kevin McCallister!
All their attempts at robbing the house are foiled by Kevin with his antics and pranks! This duo has even got the iron masks and feathers right.
The God of Mischief is all the rage currently, thanks to Marvel’s popular TV show Loki. Tom Hiddleston brought to life all the horrible and amazing things about Loki in the show, and it was only made better by his many variants.
Robert Irwin, son of crocodile hunter Steve Irwin, decided to dress up like Loki for Halloween! His variant companion? An alligator, just like in the show! The Internet went into a frenzy over this photo, and we did too!
Best Skeleton Award
Skeleton costumes are like the potatoes of Halloween costumes — basic, ubiquitous, and one of the most common ones out there in the market! However, they can turn out to be just a mashed potato, or something as sophisticated as a potato au gratin!
This skeleton costume is definitely not child’s play and is a standout in the sea of skeletons roaming the streets on Halloween! A 10/10 score at any costume competition for sure.
The Science Behind Costume Making
This is probably the most popular science enthusiast turned kind-of-bad person on TV. Without a doubt, Breaking Bad is still a beloved show with a massive following.
Walter White is an iconic pop culture character, and this person has nailed this look from head to toe! It’s hard to believe that Mr. White himself is not in for Halloween.
Blowing in With a Storm
Not everybody likes to go for the regular pop culture icons and well-known figures. Some prefer the more DIY route and outfits that are not mainstream.
This girl came up with a fantastically funny and one-of-a-kind costume idea for Halloween, dressing up as a reporter stuck in a storm! It must be a pretty bad storm too, because it’s not every day that a squirrel gets stuck in your umbrella!
Inspiration Under the Sea
What is more innovative than choosing a character for Halloween that is not our TV show character, but actually our character’s favorite character? Sounds confusing? Let us take a look at this for a clearer picture!
This friendly duo has dressed up as Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy for Halloween, complete with the fire and purple nose cover! These superheroes form a part of the SpongeBob Universe, and are the favorite TV show characters of SpongeBob himself!
Not So Lazy
This person’s sloth costume is so well made that he looks like a sloth more than an actual sloth! We’re just kidding, but it is obvious that this person has put in considerable time and effort into making this realistic and funny costume!
The only thing that could make this entire Halloween experience better is if this sloth person turns out to be working at the DMV!
Peter Pan and His Shadow
Two-people costumes are always amazing — we get double the fun and double the creativity! But, what makes it even better is when people put on their thinking caps and their two-person costume turns into one of the best we’ve ever seen!
These two friends have dressed up as Peter Pan and his shadow for Halloween, and appear to be absolutely loving this Neverland tribute! Especially the photo where the shadow is actually lying down on the ground is a sure Hall of Famer!
Clippy the Clipper
Flirty Halloween costumes are things no one is forced to put on, but many women get stuck with! The need to look good and turn heads is quite real, but not everybody is ready to dress up like an alluring kitten for Halloween!
This lady decided to showcase the need for voluptuousness and address it head-on in the most hilarious fashion — by wearing a Clippy dress and putting up an in-your-face message to go with it.
Hands down, Up, one of the cutest animated movies to ever be made, is a great source of inspiration for many kids and adults on Halloween! People just love playing the character of Russell, the young and loveable boy scout from the movie.
However, this costume-wearer is no boy scout anymore. Even so, this adult version of Russell is a doppelganger, complete with balloons, badges, and an expression of pure wonder.
Green Screen Fun
Who says we can only have fun at Halloween parties or while trick-or-treating? As this weatherman’s job calls him to be on screen every day, he has decided to take the holiday spirit and make the best of it.
For the weather watchers that day, it was an extra special viewing as this bat-man flew around the screen telling them the condition of the overhead sky!
A DMV Sloth
It is a well-hidden theory that the people who work at the DMV are not actually humans! They are in fact sloths disguised as humans who only show their true faces in the night when the ghosts come out to play — Halloween!
As much as we love to believe this theory (and DMV workers do nothing to make us believe they are not disguised sloths), we do love the fact that this DMV worker brought us the ultimate costume — DMV worker Flash from Zootopia.
A James Bond Drink
A dog’s cone helps to heal your pup’s injuries and keep him from scratching at it, but it’s not always the most easygoing accessory! Especially on Halloween when pet owners are running around trying to turn their pets into hotdogs!
This owner made the best of an unpleasant situation and turned his dog’s cone into a fancy glass, all complete with a stick of olives! They just need to ensure he doesn’t shake it too much!
The all-time favorite cartoon of yesteryear, Inspector Gadget, featured the titular character in a recognizable costume. Along with the long coat and the hat, the inspector had a ton of gadgets coming out of his hat, making his appearance all the more intriguing!
This person’s Halloween costume as Inspector Gadget is a perfect one, with the hands, gadgets, and magnifying glass on top!
What is more amazing than a person donning a costume that exactly resembles the person being copied, making it quite difficult to distinguish the real from the costume?
This person donned a Freddie Mercury costume and has brought the rock star back to life with an uncanny resemblance! This costume is definitely the champion of the world!
The Fantasy Writer
For a couple of years, Game of Thrones single-handedly ruled everything, from TV to Halloween costume ideas! But, while there were many Mother of Dragons and Jon Snows running around, this person decided to become the master that rules them all!
He may be a youngster, but with that beard and glasses, it’s hard to say that the real George R R Martin is not ready to turn Halloween a little darker!
The Boy Next Door
Sidney ‘Sid’ Phillips is a true terror of the animated world, frightning Andy and the toys in the Toy Story movie! He might have been kind of a low-key villain in the grand scheme of things, but to kids watching the movie, he is pretty scary!
This person’s choice of Sid for Halloween is perfect, amazing, and ready to send the toys scurrying for cover once again. Clearly, a lot of thought and effort was put into recreating this moody teen.
What to do when we get not one, not two, but three dogs wanting to dress up for Halloween in the best and finest? Easy, we pick a four-person costume and turn just three of them four-legged!
This team of ghostbusters is the one we would love to have watching our backs and hunting for the paranormal anytime! Not only are they efficient, but there are also plenty of pups to go around anytime someone needs extra cuddles!
The Perfect Van Gogh
Artists also get their own moment of glory in the dark when Halloween descends! People take inspiration from everywhere, and Van Gogh is quite popular in the department of ‘artists to dress up as.’
We’ve got to commend this person’s take on Van Gogh. The red beard is the most distinguished mark of the artist, and the starry night blazer doesn’t hurt either! Bravo!
A Rat in the Cap
Ratatouille is a favorite costume inspiration among parents, wherein the fathers love to dress up as Alfredo and turn their kids into varying versions of the rat Remy!
But, what should be done if you don’t have a tiny companion? We become creative, get better, and add in a backlit rat toy under our hat. We’re sure this costume was a huge hit at holiday parties!
If you’re looking to disappear at a party, but still make an impression, we have an idea for you! Or more accurately, this persom has an idea. For this Halloween party, this guy turned up as… fire! Yes, fire!
He sat in the fireplace (as he rightly should), making his presence known only once in a while. It’s the best party trick we’ve seen in a while, and it’s a great way to listen to all the gossip by just blending in with the fireplace.
A New Leia
Princess Leia is a long-time fantasy of many many girls (and boys). After all, no matter which look you choose from the movies, it’s always going to be super iconic
This grandpa wanted his fun in the sun with the Star Wars character, too! Meet grandpa’s version of Princess Leia and R2D2 (yes, it’s a shop vac). We can’t find a single fault with this one.
Catch a Cat
Do you want to win this Halloween and freak out your pets at the same time? Easy, just dress like them to have the best time of the night!
Obviously, your furry friends will not be enjoying it as much if this cat’s face is anything to go by. She looks horrified, confused, and bewildered all at once looking at her owner’s fake cat head!
Who doesn’t love a good pun? The answer is nobody! That’s why this amazing Disney princess conjuring up a fast-food franchise costume is such a brilliant hit, and rightly so!
Taco Belle (see what she did there?) is a unique costume idea and is truly amazing with its simplicity! The beautiful belle costume with all those taco fillings perfectly conveys the message — on Halloween night, anything and everything can happen.
Hocus Pocus 2 recently hit the screens to enchant a whole new generation into loving these three witches, and bring to old audiences something new to love! So, it’s imperative that we include this costume on this list!
These three sisters are dressed up as the villainous and comic Sanderson sisters. We love how well done everything is in the costume. Children of the town, beware!
The Apple King
Just because we’re dressing up in something cool doesn’t always make for the best costumes. Sometimes, what makes for the best costume is what we end up doing with it — like this gentleman! This person is dressed up as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, complete with his trademark turtleneck and glasses.
He’s also carrying Apple products in his hand to complete the look. The best part, however, was him brazenly walking into the Apple store like he owned it! We wonder how many people thought that Halloween magic was really working its way around that night.
It’s a Sunny Day
Our previous weatherman decided to be a bat for Halloween, but this one took a more, shall we say, sunnier route. After all, who doesn’t like a talking sun telling them how their day would be affected by the weather?
Even if the weather wasn’t all that good on this particular day, it’s hard to be mad at the man taking efforts to enjoy a holiday that brings out the child in everybody.
7 Foot Slits
It can be hard for really tall people to come up with new and amazing costume ideas each Halloween! However, since it is Halloween, we can be whatever we want to be. This 7-foot-tall person wanted to be short for a day!
So, he decided to cover up his extra inches and pretend to be an average-height person walking around on stilts! It’s a great way to incorporate height into the costume and stop people from asking ‘how tall are you?’ every other minute.
Him, the Villain
Him, or His Imperial Majesty, was the third-biggest arch-nemesis of everybody’s favorite girls, the PowerPuff Girls! He loved chaos, and destruction, and made sure to bring them to all the places he went to!
This person’s rendition of Him is perfect from head to toe, from the pout to the one stiletto (brownie points for those) up in the air! Even the expression looks like he’s ready to bring much-needed Halloween coolness to the fray.
These Daft Punk costumes are goals! Not only do they make us feel like needing to immediately move to the groove, but they also tempt us into taking those sneakers and making a run for the hills!
This is probably one of the coolest Halloween costumes to have walked the streets that night! Though they are obviously the musical duo Daft Punk, they also can be called by another name — Seriously Amazing Costume Makers.
Beauty Sees the Light
When it comes to one of Disney’s most beloved duos, couples can always take on the traditional role of playing the Beauty and the Beast. But, Halloween is a time to do something fun, to go for the unexpected, just like this couple!
Rather than being what they are — a couple — this duo decided to go as Beauty, aka Belle, and the talking candle, Lumière! Who needs a Beast when we can have a bibliophile and her light-hearted husband?
The Wrong Memo
This group of office-goers decided to dress up as dominoes for their wild night out on the town. But, it looks like not everybody got the same memo!
While seven of the group members followed the instructions and dressed up as the black and white game, one of them dominated the show by wearing a pizza to the party! Clearly, this way they’re Domino’s Pizza!
Oops, Costume Not Found
Dressing up is fun, costumes are great, and parties are awesome. But, for some, Halloween is just a big headache that they need to find the easiest to get out of with style! However, easy does not always mean boring.
This man printed a small sign and hung it around his neck, proclaiming he was too lazy to find a costume! He has even printed instructions on his ‘error message’ tips about the right procedure!
Nicholas Cage’s Ghost Rider is a great movie to take inspiration from for Halloween night! However, some revelers just are not satisfied with putting together a simple costume!
Take, for instance, this gentleman, who has gone a step ahead and created a mask that’s astounding in its brilliance. This hotheaded young man has made a Ghost Rider mask from scratch, complete with the skull and flames shooting out of it!
Gollum saying ‘My Precious’ is one of the most iconic scenes in the world of fantasy movies! Gollum himself is a little unhinged by the callings of the ring, and absolutely loses himself when he finds it!
This lady’s choice of costume for Halloween is spot-on spooky and funny! Bald cap, fake teeth — all of these things make her the perfect villainous hobbit. The ring serves to complete the picture.
It’s Britney Boys
Britney Spears was arguably one of the most popular artists at the turn of this century. She ruled charts, radio stations, and the hearts of many teenagers! She became an icon, a legend in her own right.
Britney’s outfit in her hit “Baby One More Time” is instantly recognizable. This gentleman recreated the look by adding his own twist for a Halloween party! Can we say ‘baby, one more time’ until the next Halloween comes knocking?
Cover Your Eyes
We know we’ve aced Halloween when one look at our costume, even in a photo, is enough to make people flinch and maybe run away in fright! That is what this costume from the Ring franchise does, and it does so with horrific precision.
This costume is a tribute to the main antagonist of the series, Sadako Yamamura, and it curls up the onlooker in the seat! Not a Halloween look we would want to meet up with after the sun sets.
The Aggressive Patriarchy
We’re not going to pretend that the patriarchy is completely nonexistent and that there aren’t men out there who try to act superior to women. However, it is kind of silly to act like opening doors for people is rooted in something like that.
Most people hold doors open just to be polite. Women hold doors, men hold doors, and they often hold them for the same gender just like the opposite gender. It’s just something that people do when they are polite.
Ever Heard of Ponytails?
Shaving your head isn’t cringe. But shaving it just to show off your AirPods? Yeah, that kind of is. After all, why not just put your hair up or something? Wouldn’t that make more sense? Shave your head if you want to, but doing it to show off something so mundane is silly.
Well, we suppose it’s alright so long as she is happy with it, but it sure still seems strange to us. We would much rather keep our hair and our Airpods, thank you very much.
You Could Have Gotten Away With It
Nothing is worse than accidentally incriminating yourself, wouldn’t you say? Especially if you thought you were incriminated already, but it turns out you actually could have gotten away with it. Major oof right there.
Thi poor guy figured he would just own his fart and make the most of it. Unfortunately, he didn’t have to own it, and he instead ended up making a fool of himself in front of others. Well, at least he is better than some of the other people on this list.
Above Your Weight Class
Wanting to be in a relationship with someone who makes a lot of money seems pretty normal to us. However, it’s a bit conceited to reject someone for making less than six figures when you yourself don’t make that much. Or perhaps pretentious is a better word?
Regardless, it’s cringe to reject someone for not possessing something that you yourself don’t even have. At that point, you just look silly and ridiculous, and no one in their right mind would want to date you.
We’re not entirely against the use of puns. Some of them can actually be clever. But this… this is not really one of them. This attempt seems far too hamfisted, and this, cringe. It really strikes that “old people trying to identify with a young crowd” chord.
Make good, clever puns. Try not to make a pun that feels so forced that people wonder why you even made it in the first place. Humor isn’t funny if you have to try too hard.
Hope You Have Burn Heal!
We know this list is about cringe moments, and the first comment here most certainly falls into that category. But honestly, our focus is mostly on the response to that comment. Talk about a sick burn that no one could recover from!
In fact, feel free to insert all of your “burn ward” and “apply cold water” memes right here. We can’t think of any situation in which it would be more fitting than right now.
That’s Not How Genetics Works
The idea of trying to genetically perfect your children is a little iffy to begin with, but let’s just forget about that and focus on the cringe intellect that is this post. That’s right, someone out there believes that getting a nose job would affect the nose their kid is born with.
Clearly, someone didn’t get a very good grade in any of their science classes in school. Even a C- should impart the knowledge one would need to poke holes in this post.
Anime fans get a bad reputation as being particularly cringe worthy individuals. However, that’s usually because a small number of individuals make the rest of us look bad. It only takes one to color an opinion, after all.
Anyway, the anime fan running around claiming to know more about Japan than anyone else (even those born in Japan) is one of the crowning achievements of cringe. We kid you not, we have seen arguments in which an anime fan has done battle with a Japanese person on Japanese culture.
Then Why Did You Ask?
When it comes to debates and arguments online, a lot of people ask for evidence of some sort. But then, when you provide that evidence, they either ignore it or deny that it even exists. We’re not sure which one is worse.
After all, why ask for evidence and proof if you are not willing to entertain it? Oh, because you’re not actually interested in the truth, you just want to fight and feel superior. Hard to do that when you present yourself as such an idiot though, isn’t it?
It Sure Doesn’t
There are certain types of people out there that you can identify just based on the way they behave. Heck, a single sentence is enough to give them away as someone that will make you cringe. For instance, look at this guy right here.
We don’t know why anyone would try and play this odd angle of showing their physical actions while texting, but it doesn’t really work, if you ask us.
British Versus English
We’ll admit, there’s a lot of confusion sometimes regarding the British and their relationship to Americans, but most people tend to know that both groups of people speak the language we know as English. It’s just different dialects of English.
One way or another, the lack of knowledge on display here is pretty cringe worthy. The internet is truly the only place you can find people that are this uninformed about things.
Keep Your Stupidity Away
People are entitled to believe what they want, but if those beliefs contradict hard evidence, we have no choice but to look down on their intellect. More importantly, though, why would you behave like this on a post about someone’s family member dying?
It’s just not the right place to try and push your political views. You wouldn’t go to a funeral and try to argue politics or personal beliefs there. Or at least, we sure hope most people wouldn’t.
Not What’s Happening Here
People often use images to push their agenda. More importantly, those images are often taken greatly out of context. Case in point, this cringe post right here. No, these babies are not being blended. Once a baby is out of the womb, that would be called murder. Especially when they are at the age depicted here.
Don’t be fooled by things you see on the internet. The machine that these babies are in is actually used to x-ray them. It’s just that the baby has to be immobilized because movement throws off the scan.
Can’t Help You There
Honestly, this image kind of speaks for itself. Just look at it. We all know how cringe these types of internet personalities can be. But at least we have the one funny guy at the bottom who speaks the united sentiment we all feel.
We suppose she thinks she’s pretty enough to be a Netflix star, and that’s the only thing that’s needed? Either way, becoming famous on Twitter or any social media is not how one actually becomes a star in film and television.
No Copyright Available
There are some people out there that seem to feel as though they own arbitrary things, like names. Now if we were talking about a stage name, then maybe, but just a normal name? We don’t think you can legally claim that.
Especially not a pretty normal-sounding name like Kay. That’s not even unique enough to assume that someone was copying you! This is definitely pretty up there on the list of things that would make you cringe just reading it.
Is That How It Is?
Cheating is generally considered a bad thing. Most people who are cheating do not want to be caught cheating by their significant other. Usually, that’s because they know they’re in the wrong by doing it. But imagine calling the other person not trustworthy for catching you.
Yeah, they were suspicious of you, but clearly, you were doing very suspicious things! This is some of the most cringe logic we think we have ever seen.
Not a Chance
YouTube isn’t all bad, but there are some very strange things that they do. Most notable is the huge number of ads they like to throw around, and often in the wrong places. Like, say, before a video on how to do first aid.
Of course, the real cringe part of this is the answer that YouTube provided, insisting that someone should buy their premium version. That’s really not the solution to the problem being described here, YouTube!
Color Before Love
Imagine being someone that has an issue with white people adopting kids of other ethnicities. Or heck, any people adopting kids of other ethnicities. We find it kind of crazy that anyone would find that more important than actually providing a home for a kid who needs one.
The worst part is, this is only the beginning of this list, and there are many more people on it that somehow manage to be even more despicable than this one. It’s almost kind of impressive, honestly.
Please Stop Asking
Apparently, there are enough people out there asking for some strange things that this sign had to be put up. That in and of itself is the cringe to be discussed here. It’s kind of shocking that such requests are this commonplace, actually.
Where did this notion of happy ending massages even come from? And do people really think that’s a normal service to be offered at a massage parlor? It’s just kind of gross.
Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. But there’s a right and wrong way to share it with others. Needless to say, insulting them by doing something like this is not one of them. This is just cringe worthy.
And that’s to say nothing about messing around with the products at a place of business, so really, this guy was being a jerk on multiple fronts. Can’t say we feel bad about him getting thrown out. Hopefully, he was banned as well.
If the Tables Turned
Spying on strangers and taking their picture without their consent is generally regarded as something to cringe over, is it not? Most people would say yes if it was a man doing it to a girl, but when the tables are turned, it somehow becomes more acceptable. Why is that?
Well, societal norms and inequality is the obvious answer. But even ignoring that, this whole thing is still something to cringe about. It’s just kind of sad and pathetic, really.
That’s Just Wrong
Speaking of things that are ok for one person to say, but not another, here’s this cringe post down below. That commenter puts it into words perfectly: can you imagine if it was a guy saying that about his wife? Everyone would be up in arms.
We don’t want to be political, but it should be wrong to take advantage of anyone regardless of gender, should it not? And at the same time, making jokes about it just isn’t cool.
Frankly, any guy trying to diminish the specific pains of the female anatomy is pretty cringe. Pain isn’t a contest: everyone is entitled to be unhappy about their own pain! So what if someone else has hurt worse at some point? That doesn’t mean that your pain doesn’t hurt!
Moreover, this weird argument about ankle rolling is stupid. For anyone who is unsure, women do in fact have ankles, and they too have rolled them just like men have. That’s a mutual experience!
Cultural Appropriation Hoax
Cultural appropriation is a real thing. However, most people have no idea what it really means. Trying to steal the culture of another group of people and pretend it is your own is cultural appropriation. Just participating in that culture is not.
In fact, most people like the others take a real interest in their culture. We all like sharing aspects of who we are and where we come from. Trying to arbitrarily block people from doing that is about as cringe as you can get.
From Both Sides
Honestly, there is a little bit of cringe in both sides of this exchange. But we suppose the instigator was kind of asking for it, so we’re more inclined to frown on her. It’s all pretty stupid though, honestly.
The idea of measuring someone’s maturity by the size of their bills is pretty ridiculous. Heck, if being an adult means paying $4000 in rent every month, we are more than happy to be labeled as children!
You Tell Her
Playing hard to get is really something that men and women alike should stop doing. It’s cringe worthy, and super annoying. If you want the person to like you and they said they did, why are you going to reject them in some sort of weird mind game?
If you’re worried that they’ll move because you’re too “easy” then you’d be better off not being in a relationship with them in the first place! Besides, isn’t it better to have someone respect the boundaries that you set?
Everything About This
We’re honestly not even sure what to say about this, or if anything really needs to be said at all. After all, anyone looking at this picture can see exactly why everyone on Reddit would cringe over it.
Sometimes, it hurts us to think that people like this truly do exist out there. At those times, our faith in humanity tends to drop by about 7%, depending on what else we’ve seen on the internet that day.
Dedication isn’t bad in and of itself, but when you take it to ridiculous extremes, it can become pretty cringe. For instance, asinine levels of dedication to some online person who doesn’t know you is kind of crazy. Look at all this money being thrown away!
To call it cringe is really a bit of an understatement, honestly. That’s just a whole lot of money to throw at someone who doesn’t even know you exist. Simping, we believe it’s called?
Tone it Back, Shakespeare
You ever run into one of those people that throw quotes around all the time, trying to sound wise and prophetic? Aren’t they annoying? We admit, there are plenty of great quotes out there that are worth repeating. But in a situation like this, you just seem like a blowhard.
There’s such a thing as being too cavalier. Sometimes, it’s better to just be a normal person that doesn’t say things like this in a normal conversation.
Gender Roles at Their Finest
Wouldn’t it be nice if society would stop trying to force likes and dislikes on children as soon as they are born, based solely on their gender? Why can’t we just allow kids to grow up and pick their own likes and dislikes?
Well, even if you want to ignore that question, this cake in and of itself makes us cringe. Just hear us out: what about guns and glitter? Why not both, as they say? You can definitely do both. Or, you know, just not do this kind of thing.
Way to Go, Democracy
Palpatine may love democracy, but only when things go right. When people somehow vote on the fact that water is not a basic human right, and this is the collective response they come up with… well, we certainly don’t love democracy right this second.
We’re a little concerned regarding how many people came to this conclusion, but at least it was close. We would have been really scared if it was a blowout!
You Feeling Threatened or Something?
Reading this exchange, we are certainly getting the feeling that one individual is feeling threatened by the other. Can you guess which one it is? Yeah, it is kind of obvious.
It just seems like one of those things where the issue is your faith in your relationship. If you’re that worried about whether or not your boyfriend will be smitten by another girl, maybe the problem is you and him, not the other girl.
Never to be Worn
We get the feeling this shoe was made by someone trying really hard to be cool with the kids, but who didn’t really know what they were talking about or what they were doing. They probably looked up some common slang and pasted it on a shoe.
Or who knows, maybe someone in the know did make this shoe, and it’s just as terrible regardless. Either way, we hope they bought this shoe just so they could burn it and spare us all the sight.
Isn’t Your Name Flora?
Do you know what’s really weird? How many people try to defend other cultures when they themselves aren’t part of that culture. Like this person, for instance, trying to say that only certain people can have certain names, when they themselves fit the exact bill they are trying to condemn.
You can’t get much more out of touch with reality than that. But hey, at least you can make everyone reading your post cringe really hard. That is still an achievement of sorts.
Actions of the Peasantry
People who don’t feel even the slightest bit of shame when they are caught being a terrible person? Well, can it really get much more cringe than that? Frankly, we think that’s a pretty hard bar to clear, though we know some people have success.
Also, way to dig his grave even deeper by calling himself a king there at the end. We suppose he was trying o save his dignity, but now we just hate him even more.
A Sheep Indeed
We’ve never seen anyone that called others sheep not be a cringe worthy individual. Probably has something to do with how respectable people wouldn’t say that about others. One way or another, can we talk about this giant sheep balloon?
Frankly, we’d be surprised if it actually lasted more than a few days before someone ended up cutting a hole in it or something. It seems unlikely that it would last very long.
No You Aren’t
Alpha males aren’t really a thing. The whole concept was a mistake that came about when wolves were observed in captivity, but not in their natural environment. Even the researcher that coined the term “alpha male” said it was a mistake. Look it up!
But ignoring all of that, let’s just pretend Alpha Males were real for a minute. Here’s the truth of things: no one who runs around touting himself as an Alpha Male, is in fact, an Alpha Male. Just like being cool, the collect people are the ones who don’t sound their own horn.
Something’s Wrong Here
First of all, the whole “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” thing is kind of cringe. But ignoring that, do you see something wrong with this picture? Namely, the flag on the hoodie? Thine eyes do not deceive you.
Yes, that is an Italian flag. So if you wanted to know whether or not this person knew what they were talking about, the answer is most assuredly no. No, they do not.
Nice Try, But No
There are many ways to “slide into DMs” as it were. This is one of them, but at the same time, it’s a really bad way to make an attempt. For one, there’s absolutely no subtlety here at all.
Second, this is just a really shallow way to try and make your move. At least pretend like you are actually interested in getting to know someone, even if your end goal is less than honorable. Be good at being scummy at least!
Can’t Let Go
Something happens after you get to the age of 30. Suddenly, you no longer care about what other people would say about your quirks or other weird things about you. Maybe, it’s because it’s all downhill from there once you’ve hit that mark.
It seems, however, someone here took it a little too far and caused the internet to cringe. We don’t blame them. Romantic relationships are hard, but ten years? Grow up! You are not in your early twenties anymore. It’s time for you to move on.
Baby, Don’t Hurt Me
Unrequited love often hurts. The sad realization that the person you love so dearly just wouldn’t reciprocate may cause a lot of pain. The right thing to do is, of course, just let it go and move on.
There are plenty of other potential lovers out there so you shouldn’t get fixated on just one unless you are a creep. Posting “I love you” on the wall of the person who told you that it’s just not “it” may not be the best recourse.
Not in a Relationship With
This could easily be one of the worst things you can do on social media. Posting that you are in a relationship with someone who isn’t actually aware that you two are in a relationship. What we mean is that these two were clearly not in a relationship, unless it’s only happening in one’s imagination.
What’s worse is that they persisted in trying to convince them that they are. If you have yet to disable the option of allowing random users to post on your facebook wall, you should do so now.
Better Than Shakespeare
You can say a lot of things about Shakespeare, but saying that you are a better writer than him is just absurd. There is a reason why every high school student has to learn about him and his works. Shakespeare’s contribution to English literature is unquestionable.
This comment here made us (and the rest of the Internet) cringe. We’d love to read this person’s poems since they claim to be better than Shakespeare. Perhaps this person’s use of punctuation should have been a red flag because we’re pretty sure that the first sentence shouldn’t end with a question mark…
Didn’t Mean What I Said
We believe that parents should support their children no matter who they love or who they choose to be. This mom here thought that it would be nice to send her son a text message that reminded him how beautiful he is.
However, it seems that this affection stops short of her son’s orientation. She chose to ignore her son’s comment or just couldn’t deal with it. We bet it was a cringey moment for both of them.
The Answer Is No
With the prevalent use of social media, this has become somewhat of a cringey phenomenon. Random people just start messaging others in an attempt to befriend them, hoping that this would probably lead to a romantic relationship.
When they are rebuffed, they just try again and again until ultimately one has no other choice but to block them for good. This seems to be the case here, except that they haven’t gotten to the blocking stage yet. But this is just one of those cringe-worthy moments.
This is definitely one of those cringey moments that would leave you scarred for life. Someone here clearly badly misinterpreted the photo that this person uploaded, mistakenly thinking that this person entered a new relationship when they just wanted to share the memory of their late spouse.
Not only is this an insult to their memory, it also comes to show that the person who wrote this wasn’t really close with them. When in doubt, just don’t say a word.
This is just another story that was blown entirely out of proportion. A bunch of neighbors thought that the person who was going on walks every evening was “autistic” due to his attire.
Why would they even think that? Of course he is wearing different shirts from different fire departments — he is part of the association that supports them! We wish we could see the looks on their faces when he replied to their comments and debunked the mystery.
Any Last Wishes?
We don’t really know what’s worse here: this person thinking that the end of times is coming or that the person who admitted to having a crush on them was bluntly rejected — at least that’s how we understand that.
What a sad way to go if you ask us, at least in theory, because the end isn’t coming as far as we are concerned. So, go and do your homework instead of wasting your time on Facebook.
They Are No Longer With Us
Since Facebook took over our lives by surprise, nothing seems to be the same: relationships, marriages, births, and even deaths. It seems that if it’s not listed on Facebook it doesn’t exist in the real world (while it should be vice versa in our opinion).
In this case, it looks like this person’s Facebook “friends” haven’t even noticed that they have been gone for a couple of years. This is both cringey and sad.
We weren’t entirely sure how to interpret the response to this odd request. Apart from the fact that the question itself is extremely odd — why would a friend from high school need your mom’s phone number for a scholarship? This already sounded very shady to us.
What’s even weirder is the other person’s response. What do you mean you don’t have a mom? Is she gone? Or do you mean to say you never had one? Either way, we were cringed.
Am I Clear?
This is sergeant aggressive-Tinder-user speaking, weren’t we clear the first time?! Seems like this person here was unhappy about the fact that their Tinder match wasn’t active enough on social media.
We were completely taken aback by their aggressive attitude, demanding the other person (to whom they barely spoke probably) to be more active. We were really cringed and we were pretty sure that we had shivers running down our spines as well. This is just awful.
Four in a Row
When you are dating multiple people at the same time, it may not be a good idea to open a Facebook messenger group for all of them. But, it seems like that in this case it was proven to be surprisingly efficient (but cringey nonetheless).
Actually, it’s a good thing that they did that. This way all four of them would know to stay away from this person. We, certainly, wouldn’t want to date someone like them.
This Is Grandma
There is a saying about moments like that: “measure twice, cut once”. This means that if you are uncertain, always double-check because most often you wouldn’t be able to undo certain actions or take back some of the things you said.
In this case, they thought that the person who messaged them had promiscuous intentions. Apparently, it was just grandma and the beef part was, well, just beef and not something else! But we honestly can’t blame them for thinking this way. How were they supposed to know that grandma had a new number?
The road to you-know-where is paved with good intentions. It seems that this is just another classic example of this. All they wanted was to see the puppy’s eyes, except they didn’t quite realize that this puppy, well, simply had no eyes.
Yes, sometimes people and animals are born without an organ. This could be the case here as well. They were just unaware of it and made us all cringe.
Should Have Thought Twice
If there’s one thing you should never do, it’s probably making threats against the government or the general populace, especially online. For one, that kind of thing is just not funny. Two, most companies take that kind of thing very seriously.
And let’s be honest, do you really want the FBI or something to knock on your door for a stupid prank? Probably not, considering how much trouble that would be. The most cringe thing here is the pathetic reaction of the prankster.
Well, He Did Say Narcissist
If anyone ever introduces themselves like this, you should probably just get out of dodge while you’re ahead. You know that every aspect of their personality is something cringe over at this point: heck, they were even kind enough to point it out!
He’s not doing himself any favors, but he probably doesn’t realize that, considering how overinflated his ego is. At least the rest of us can steer clear.
A Real Oxymoron
If you want to be someone that gets into a relationship just to take advantage of someone’s finances, that’s already very cringe worthy. But at least be upfront about it. Being that type of person and calling yourself independent is truly laughable.
We’re just saying, if you’re going to be a bad person, at least own it. Don’t try to pretend that you are somehow better than your attitude.
Correct This, Moron
A somewhat recent trend has been this weird notion of “correcting” the art of other people. We’re not even going to get into how you can’t “correct” art, since it’s subjective and is correct as whatever the artist intended. Instead, we’ll talk about how cringe the execution is.
Or rather, we’ll just let you read the above post and see what we mean. Almost anyone who has tried to correct the art of another person has made a fool of themselves. We’re just saying.
Depending on your personal stance, either individual in this conversation could be the ‘cringe’ one. But personally, we think it’s the teacher, at least for the latter half of the exchange. After all, talking back to someone is how communication happens, after all.
It falls to teachers to come up with better ways to verbally defeat students in such a contest. If they can’t do that, they are likely to get bamboozled, just like this one.
