Who hasn't been baffled by something at some point in their lives? Usually, it's a small thing like where we put our glasses. Unfortunately for us, we don't have the mystery-solving equipment that the police or the Mystery Inc. gang do so we're left stumbling around looking for our glasses until we check a mirror and see them on our head.
Like our glasses, here are 30 little mysteries that really didn't take anyone too long to solve. The answer is in plain sight even though sometimes it's so weird and cringe we wish it wasn't.
Come On Josh!
If only Josh would just get his life together then our world would be so much better! Josh, get back on the job because, without you, our entire world could burn down. Every fire-safe home, office, or community space should come with a Josh to prevent fires.
The Reason Why The Claw Machine Had An Impressive Streak
No wonder nobody could beat this claw machine. You'd have to have the grip strength of a bodybuilder or stick your arm through the glass. Either way, that Care Bear is most likely staying in there.
Why Traffic Was Backed Up This Morning
When you're checking Google maps for traffic delays, make sure you go zoom in and check out what exactly is holding up traffic. You may find a couple of dudes really crushing those Zelda temples.
Why The Line For The Bathroom Was Shorter Than Normal
There's no mistaking what's going on here. Someone saw the crazy line for the washroom and thought they'd do some DIY BYO wall painting. Hopefully, they made long, unbroken eye contact with the people waiting in line at the bathroom while doing this.
"I Have Absolutely No Idea Who Ate My Lipstick"
Hmmmm, I wonder who could've done this? The shade that got eaten was "Raspberry Rapture" and the dog only wears "Cherry Kiss" so it couldn't have been them that munched the Mac.
Why He Was Suddenly Bald 10 Minutes Into The Game
How's this for keeping your head in the game? This guy's wig was absolutely snatched by the ball and the stellar moves of his opponent. Next time invest in some bobby pins, dude.
This Convertible Owner Probably Quickly Learned How Sunshades Work After This
"Sun hot. Car hot. Car need less sun. Sun get in through windows. Cover windows."—Actual thought process transcript was taken straight from this convertible owner's head. Hopefully, they figured out why the car was still hot after this.
Remember The Name Of This Unsung Squirrel Hero That Canceled Classes For Two Days
This mysterious memorial is dedicated to the squirrel that chewed through a wire that canceled classes for two days and it was paid for by the undergrad class. I will forever remember Sparky's service.
McDonald's Really Out Here Not Knowing What's In A Fish Fillet
When the main advertised ingredient in a fish fillet isn't the fish maybe it's time you switched up the mystery meat for something else. Go for a hot dog instead — at least it's not pretending to be actual identifiable meat.
Wonder What That Could Be? That's Definitely Not A Boat
We all love a good surprise—that's why we wrap presents instead of just handing them over with a card and a gruff "here ya go." Tough thing with a boat is that it takes a lot of wrapping paper and a healthy dose of delusion to disguise.
Oh, There Is No Wondering Who's Car This Really Is
This dog wants you to know exactly who's car this is. He's the type of guy to lean up against his new ride outside a bar and offer you a spin to impress you. He can drive and fetch a stick.
Who Bought The Matching Top To Your Bottoms
If you've ever bought half of a matching set of clothes at a thrift store and wondered what's going to happen to the other half, well, here you are. It's good to see visible proof that great minds think, and shop in the same section of Saver's, alike.
The Pumpkin That Needed To Know Who Did This To Them
This pumpkin feels like it can draw some conclusions here. When the family who carved it were taking it home, it saw all the other cut up pumpkins on doorsteps along the way and felt like it knew what was up. Spooky season is getting statistical here.
The Stolen Pizza Was An Inside Job
When this person noticed their pizza was slowly getting eaten they had no idea where the slices were going. That is until they saw this cat's genius hole set up. It's perfectly pepperoni-sized too. This is truly mission imPAWSibble.
What Beast Ruined Spaghetti In The Library For Everyone?
This library sign makes me so upset. What mysterious spaghetti incident happened that made Lady and the Tramp dates over several expensive manuscript books banned? I want to know because I've got a candlelit dinner in front of the Shakespeare stacks planned for Friday night.
They Did Tell Us Their Products Suck
If you were wondering why your new vacuum works so well then it might be because you bought it from this sucky store. Its products may suck, but you gotta remember that the entire world doesn't. Chin up and bend down to get those crumbs.
Finally, We Know Where The Centaurs Went
This man-horse may be down for the count but the conspiracy theorists aren't. There's finally living proof that centaurs are real and they're not resting until they get the word out.
But Where Did Her Tattoo Go...
Benefit of the doubt: she's posing in the exact same position with the exact same lighting and background just on the other side of her body. That's what I really want to think instead of that she's a talented photoshopper.
Why The Horseshoe Crab Was So Big, Fast, And Such A Big Fan Of Unicorns
Probably the last thing you expect to see under here is a child. What kind of super-genius wants to be a niche species of crab for Halloween? Good for her, she's not taking child's Halloween costume expectations laying down. But she kind of is.
Why Not Shame The Tuna?
This is a case of spellcheck because if you're passionate enough about something to get a highly visible and moderately permanent version of it stuck to your car, you need to really look at it. All I'm seeing is tuna, even though I have it in good faith it's supposed to be something else.
Eleanor Meant The Other Stripping
No, no, no, no, no. The other one. Yeah, not the wood varnish or the dancing but the quilting one you've undoubtedly never heard of. Maybe the other one is Eleanor's part-time gig when she's not tearing up the quilting squares.
Why Josh Felt Like Nobody Really Wanted To Be At His Birthday
This is funny but if someone did this to me on my birthday I would have a good cry and an existential crisis in my car about it. Hope Josh had a good birthday, or whatever, though.
This Explains Why We All Hate Public Transit
This is a full-circle moment. If I saw this sign as I was stuck on a six-hour Greyhound struggling to find a comfortable position amidst the other hundred strangers I wouldn't even be surprised. It's just an omen for public transit in general.
A Picture Of My Face Was Probably On Display At The Zoo
If you feel personally victimized by this sign then you're not alone because I feel the same way. Children are generally terrified of my face when I'm not wearing makeup so I'm kinda not surprised they took a selfie of mine down.
Why Grandma Missed Half The Family Beach Photos
This family will definitely remember this day not for the photos but for the time the ocean claimed grandma. She's free now, living her best life among the mer-people who actually make sure she's present and accounted for.
Not A Mystery Why This Attorney Chose Here To Advertise
This attorney is very clearly ahead of the advertising curve and it's no secret why he chose to do this on an event wristband. Another great business plan for him is advertising on hospital bracelets so sober people can remember his number.
The Biggest Mystery Of The Mystery Section Is What Exactly The Mysteries Are
This is clearly a marketing ploy to increase foot traffic to the stores, but definitely not one that will increase sales. The bestseller of the week is "bound in light beige paper and slightly smaller than average" by the author "not quite sure."
The Ex Who Tried And Failed To Make Her Jealous
If you're going to play games you gotta get smarter because we're out here basically as certified private investigators with social media. How was the trip you took last year with your mom and second cousin to Greece? Just wondering because I noticed you skipped the Acropolis, so was the weather bad that day?
How Are They On The Textbook If They're Posing For It?
Not sure why the graphic designer bothered to play this kind of Inception game on a cover that literally nobody will pay attention to, but hey, this is just building their Photoshop portfolio. Good on you.
You're Welcome For Introducing You To The "Frappajappajooza"
This girl is getting her kicks all the right way with her mystery Starbucks order shenanigans. It's clever, but you know that some Starbucks executive out there is rubbing their chin thinking that this is a great idea.
