If you've been around on the internet you may have heard of blessed and cursed images. Combine those and you have "blursed" images. The term is the living embodiment of contradiction. It's the full-throttle feeling of being happy you woke up in time for work, but realizing it's the weekend. It's every line from Alanis Morissette's song "Ironic."
Looking at these blursed images will make you pause, reflect on everything you know in life, and leave you with more questions than answers. It's a wild world out there and we're not ready for all the weird stuff it holds.
This Extremely Hot Dog, Seriously, White Hot
Who said hotdogs couldn't live up to their name? Not this welder or machinist, that's for sure. When they fired up their furnace they were thinking about nothing other than piping hot dogs. This is called letting your personal life impact your work.
This photo is blursed because yes, the hotdog is in fact way too hot and there's no reason for this to exist. But on the other hand, isn't it actually sort of beautiful and a once in a lifetime kind of thing? Feel however you want about it, as long as you don't take a bite of this forbidden food.
Let's Give A Hand To The Artist Who Thought This Blursed Thing Up
Humans are obsessed with adding faces to stuff — it's why the movie Cars has two sequels and Stephen King's Christine only has one. Here's a blursed hand that maybe shouldn't have gotten a face.
In all honesty, it's beautiful and well-crafted but it's also possibly the scariest thing you've seen all day and now your dreams are going to be filled with them. We'll all have nightmares that they'll be standing behind us in line at the grocery gazing thoughtfully at our produce. Terrifying.
Square Eggs Are The First Thing You See In Heaven And Heck
There are 100 ways to cook an egg and this shouldn't be one of them. Welcome to your new favorite nightmare and the proof that science has maybe gone too far. Ladies and gentlemen, the square egg. Please hold your applause until after it's been properly salted.
If you think we're yolking around, we're not. This egg comes as part of a holy trinity of other monstrous eggs with the "family-sized" egg and the "long" egg. You can use your imagination as to what those creatures look like.
But Wouldn't This Spaghetti Taste Amazing?
Spaghetti has been though a lot since people are constantly coming up with new ideas for noodles. Spaghetti was blursed the moment "zoodles" became a thing and we started seeing vegetable spiralizers being sold on The Shopping Channel. This is just another chapter in the blursed spaghetti saga.
Hear us out — baked beans, fries, and meatballs would actually taste amazing. Okay, it won't taste like spaghetti, but when has that ever stopped us from eating anything? Just think of it as deconstructed chili fries.
Someone Created This Blursed Lego Display And It's Concerning
We've all had bad days at work. Maybe you're serving and you spill soda on yourself and the diners and you have to go into the back to cry. It happens. This retail worker decided that they would take their bad day out on the display they were creating for their children's entertainment store.
Of all the books to make giant decorative Lego display versions of, this is the worst one. Now every kid that walks in will have to undergo an existential crisis.
Let's Go Get This Tattoo Removed!
We've been told that with great power comes great responsibility. We all need to remind ourselves of this mantra so we can be careful with our actions and words every day. The tattoo artist who picked up his tattoo gun should have listened to his instinct before creating this blursed Mario tattoo.
Unfortunately, no one took two seconds to think and now it's a permanent reminder. Hopefully, this guy ordered some sweaters when he got home.
This Muffin Just Bit Me
When making blueberry muffins the key ingredients are blueberries, flour, and sugar. If your recipe says "essence of hamster" then you should skip that step because that's just a terrifying addition. When this person was baking they accidentally knocked over an entire container of hamster soul into their muffins and ended up with this blursed image.
We're confused the longer we stare at this photo. On the one hand, we're happy this muffin looks so cute. But on the other hand, we're concerned why it looks so cute. Is this a fluke or is a tiny hamster trapped in there?
Not Quite The Way Privacy Settings Work
When you hear about all the techy stuff Facebook is doing and all the information they're gathering it makes sense to have your own privacy concerns. Most people dive right into the privacy settings and try to figure out a way to max them out, while others take a more holistic approach.
You tell them, you tell them good. She's absolutely right that Facebook will not be printing off stuff from her computer. She must know something we don't about Facebook's terms and conditions to find this loophole.
This Missed Connection That Wasn't
We all need a friend in our time of need. That little text that offers love and support when you're feeling down can mean so much. It can come from the most unexpected people that you never thought you would reach out to. Really, you didn't expect it in 100 years.
Now, are they here to pick her up physically or emotionally because they can do both. Sometimes a long 10-minute drive to the club with a stranger is all you need to clear your head.
Another Hot Dog Because It's A Blursed Muse
Blursed images have found their home in an unlikely muse — the hotdog. Its bold cylindrical shape and rubbery texture inspire both happiness and sickness. Eating them will do that too.
If you haven't tried it you should. It would probably taste great and be a good alternative to a regular dog if you were watching your carbohydrate intake. This is a blursed version of "animal style" at In-N-Out and we respect its chaotic and delicious energy.
This Wario Has Had Enough Of Being Compared To Mario
We all laugh and play in the Mario universe not thinking about the inner conflicts the characters must be going through. Toad is constantly overworked building castles, Peach is always being kidnapped, and Luigi is always overshadowed by his more famous brother. But Wario has it the worst for sure.
This Wario is done being an alternate version of Mario and has decided to become the terrifying beast he imagines himself. This blursed figure is fantastically constructed but sends shivers down our spine.
Link Weighs Exactly This Much And It's Not Okay With Us
Video game fans are used to bugs in the game, physics that don't make sense, and environments that don't quite seem possible. But this blursed image went way too far. Designers of the Legend of Zelda made link weigh exactly 7 apples and 2 spicy peppers and we feel so weird about it.
According to this scale, Link weighs roughly 4 pounds. He's been saving princesses, journeying, and fighting bad guys while weighing the same as a can of soup. That's amazing, but Link what are you doing?
They Don't Make Pizza Cutters As Medieval As They Used To
Isn't it frustrating living in the age of consumerism where you can't trust that anything you buy will last you 5 years? Remember that can opener you bought when you moved 6 months ago — you're now onto its third iteration and can vaguely recall the sound of its original version opening cans.
Welcome to a kitchen tool that won't let you down ever. Seriously, it will probably outlast you before it ever fails to cut your pizza. Too bad you don't have much control over what shape it cuts your pizza into. Luckily, pizza still tastes delicious when it's shredded.
For People Who Pass On The Healthy
It's easy nowadays to go a whole day without eating something that was recognizably alive at one point. Sure, that pepperoni pizza and twinkie combo at lunch tastes delicious, but can you remember the last time you saw pizza growing on trees? That's because pizza trees are an endangered species like this blursed watermelon cake.
This is the perfect cake for someone who likes the idea of fruit. They thought of a watermelon, smiled, then reached for this blursed imitation.
Family Vacation To Smackdown Town
You're at the beach with your family on your annual family vacation living it up and having a fantastic time. You're having such a great time that you want to stop and commemorate the family memories by taking a great photo. Jumping? Sure! Stretch a little so you can high-kick your sister's face.
Fantastic photo execution, but poor finish. We'll give this a 4/10 for artistry but a 10/10 on the blursed image scale. If they work hard and practice they can make nationals next year with those ratings.
The Eternal Battle You Forgot About
It's a tough cold world out there full of heroes and villains and the recent feuds between fast-food restaurants on Twitter and exposing them. Here are two players in a fast-food war as old as time that will make you question your morals.
This is blursed because it's the truth — it's the battle we all have to choose between every time we decide to pick up food instead of cooking. Now that it's right in front of our eyes we can't ignore it. Especially because Ron's hair is gorgeous.
Her Dogs Are Barking After Walking All Day In These
If you've watched Forrest Gump you know that shoes say a whole lot about a person. They tell strangers where you've been, what your life is like, and how much gum is in that parking lot you just crossed. This woman's shoes say way too much because they're literally barking.
It's incredible that the designer was able to make these and get them past PETA, but we're really wishing they didn't. We have so many questions about why and how, but none of them are about where we can order these.
It's Raining Bread
When you're a student in art school and you're trying to make something the world has never seen before sometimes it helps to draw inspiration from your everyday life. The grocery store is selling WonderBread at 20 loaves for $10? Perfect.
Here we have a bathroom infested with slices of bread and it's blursed. It's a really cool project but definitely one that makes us feel uncomfortable. This photo is the most blursed thing since sliced bread.
Glad You Had Fun Playing, Dear
Parenting might just be encountering the worst and learning to deal with it over and over again. Sure, you're proud your kid was finally able to learn how to play the piano after you've been buying them lessons for years, but it's too bad they only know how to play one song. This mom had to face the blursed when her kid came back from playing.
We're all happy this kid looked like they had a good time, but the result is a child who will be leaving muddy footprints an inch thick on the ground for a week.
This Is Hands Downey The Cringest One
If you haven't played the celebrity lookalike game you need to because the results are hilarious and will have you staring into a mirror trying to trace back your cheekbones to your twin Cameron Diaz. All you need is a face to play. Or at least a palm, like this person discovered.
Sure. Honestly, sure. Why wouldn't the palm of a hand with a smiley face drawn on look like Robert Downey Jr? We see no difference between the beginning and end. Though something is off we just can't put our finger on what.
Don't Cross Duolingo
Duolingo is one of the most popular language teaching apps, and now we might know why. This person skipped their lesson, and Duolingo had feelings about it. It's a good thing they weren't home at the time!
One thing is certain, after this turn of events, this person is never missing another Spanish again. Lesson learned! In reality these messages are unrelated, we just hope they were able to take the necessary steps to take care of their safety.
Taking The Message Literally
There you are, trying to watch your favorite anime program in your room when you're mom yells at you. It's too loud and she needs you turn it down so she can focus on more important things.
You, being the loving child you are, taker her literally and turn your TV upside down. How mad do you think she would get? Luckily, this is just this person's phone screen and they weren't actually playing a prank on their parents.
That's Not A Real Fox
We dare you to tell us that is what the Tibetan fox really looks like. This looks like someone took a disapproving parent's face and drew it on the fox. This meme nails the fact that there is no way that is a real animal.
Except it is, and there is nothing photo shopped about that photo! Now we want to know what other animals look fake but are actually real. There has to be a cat like this, right?
Everything Is Fine
You know society has gone to far when people have to leave notes in their parked cars to let passerbys know that their skeleton is okay. He's not overheating and he'll be just fine. Really, what's the worst thing that could happen to him?
Still, this person felt compelled to let people know they didn't have to play hero. Just let the skeleton drink his milk and listen to his very spooky tunes in blissful peace.
Perhaps no state endures as much negativity as Florida. Even though there is nothing with the state, it has become known as place you move away from, not to. That's why when this woman was asked why she moved to Florida she had to lie.
In reality, she probably just wanted to live in the sunshine where some of the world's most beautiful beaches exist. No one can ever know that, though, they just need to think she got unlucky.
It's Not Toilet Paper Science, People!
In recent years it seems that how to put the toilet paper roll on properly has become a huge debate. What side should the paper flap be pulled from. Who uses the last square and doesn't replace the paper?
This person was so unsure of how they put the toilet paper in that they left a note to be sure. They also did it wrong and the next person to sit down is going to have a difficult time wiping.
Not An Easy Decision
We're not saying any parent would actually say no to this proposition, but we think a few can relate. Sometimes your little one is just being awful and you really feel like saying no.
What you should really do is call the police though, because your child is being held for ransom. Or you can remember you're playing Pokemon, and you named one of your creatures Son. It's not your real child.
This probably wasn't what you were hoping to find on YouTube, but you did, and now you can't turn away. Is that kid really going to eat that paper? What's his strategy? Is it even possible to eat paper?
Now you don't even want to listen to "Old Town Road." There are for more pressing matters you're concerned about. This kid just won the internet with the most random proposition he could possible think of.
That Took A Dark Turn
Oh boy, this could not have been a worse place for that giant lobster to walk into. It thought it was going to show up in time to save its family, not see the sad remains sitting in a pile in front of satisfied students.
How will he go back home and face his lobster wife now? Or is she in the pile, too? Our thoughts go out to this once happy, and now lonely lobster father.
Sometimes You Just Have To Laugh
It's not easy for a burglar when they're in the middle of a job and the family comes home. Now they have to hide and wait it out. When grandpa tells a knee slapper of a joke, however, that becomes impossible.
This burglar couldn't stop from laughing, and now they're paying the price with prison time. Maybe that will stop them from trying to burglarize someone else's house. If you laugh easily, maybe you're in the wrong profession.
The sad this about this picture is that there are probably people who bought this bag filled with air. It's not really full of Muppet laughs, it's just air. Not even hot air! What a rip off!
We do have to admit that this is pretty genius marketing from the store, even if it's a shady business tactic. When you open the bag do you hear the scream? That's the only way it's worth any money!
Tired of the same old boring game of golf you always play? Here's a solution, find the biggest golf ball you can and attach an over-sized drover to a lift. Now you can play extreme golf.
You'll probably want to invest in an extra loud megaphone to yell "FORE" into or this game could get risky. How far do you think this ball will travel? We're betting a few hundred yards with solid contact.
There's a lot to try and figure out about this picture so let's go one step at a time. First off, there must be a comic book convention in town. Secondly, that's Green Lantern, and he's using the power of his ring so he doesn't have to wait in line for food.
Finally, we're betting he paid whoever is that green spandex suit to embarrass themselves like that. Who would do that for free? Being the energy coming from the Lantern's ring is worse than being Robin!
When we saw this, we knew it was going to give us nightmares. We also knew we had to share it with you. If you're not familiar with the show, it's a behind the scenes look from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
The character in the picture is played by Danny Devito, who is famously short. Seeing him him excessively long legs isn't as funny as the show hoped. It's honestly terrifying.
Don't Follow The Donuts!
Pennywise knows what these cops wants, and the answer is donuts. For one of these men in blue, the sugary breakfast treat is too irresistible. The other seems to have spotted the clown in the gutter and is trying to save him.
How will this end? You'll just have to watch It Chapter Three when it finally comes out! Just kidding, a third movie isn't coming out any time soon. Sorry to get your hopes up!
Thanos never stood a chance. In the game "Untitled Goose Game," players take control of trouble causing goose. If that good was a member of the Avengers, Thanos neevr would have made it very far with his plan.
You see, the goose's special power is to mess with people, taking the things that belong to them and running away. What this goose will use the Infinity Gauntlet for is anyone's guess, but it will probably be more annoying then world stopping.
The really scary thing about this blursed image is just how accurate it might be someday. When humanity reaches the year 151441, we might be surviving off of maple syrup, meaning Canada might be the last stronghold for humanity.
When the syrup runs out, will humanity fall? Will we figure out to grow our food before then? Most importantly, if this prophecy is true, what section of humanity will be left standing when Canada falls?
There are so many questions to ask about this blursed images we won't even bother. Whoever has been buying this combination of items together is putting together the most creative Halloween costume ever.
Also, look at the price! We didn't even know you could buy a trumpet for that small amount of money! Now we just need to figure out what the point of all of this is. Why would a skeleton need a trumpet?
That, our friends, is the world's most powerful tuba. Those three students thought they had their crime in the bag when this hard tooting hero showed up. With one big breathe she sent them all away!
This blurse image is impressive. These kinds of jump an snap photos are really hard to take, and are usually mastered by Star Wars fans showing off their force powers. We'll take tuba girl over a jedi any day!
This father and child knew exactly what they were doing when they posed for this picture. First, you have to get the doomsday watchers on edge, then make them laugh, because look, the end really is quite close.
Just how close is the end? Look in the background behind the kid if you haven't seen the end yet. Now we just need to know what happens when you reach the end.
