You know what they say about life, right? It takes a village. Well, when you head to your local superstore, be it a Superstore or some other regional business, you’ll end up seeing every member of that village during your trip. Superstores are known as being ground zero for every weirdness and oddity known to the human condition. Today, we are going to take a deep dive in order to showcase 38 of the funniest and weirdest pictures ever captured inside of your local superstore.
Hungry Like a Wolf
Have you ever had the overwhelming urge to howl at the moon? Do you find that your closet has been increasingly filled with wolf-themed clothing? Well, we have bad news for you. No, you’re not a werewolf, you just have a weird wolf obsession, like these people, we assume. There’s nothing wrong with that! Throw on your wolf costume and get your shopping done, we’re not going to judge.
For Choking Hazards, Call CPS
The great thing about going to your local superstore is that you are confronted by every type of parent imaginable. Oh, well, that does include THIS type of parent, too, doesn’t it? We’re not saying that putting bags over your child’s head is a bad idea. We’re just saying, hey, maybe don’t put a bag over your child’s head? As it turns out, your kid probably likes breathing.
Cupid is Real
Did you ever shake your head at the very thought of Valentine’s Day? Are you firmly on board with the idea that V-Day is just another Hallmark Holiday? Well, you might have thought you were right, but this picture is proof that you were wrong. After all, this dude HAS to be the real Cupid, right? Nobody would willingly dress up like this, would they?
We’ve got one of two things going on in this picture. Either this mom is really handcuffing her kid to the cart, or she’s an undercover cop and the boy in blue is secretly a 30-year-old criminal under 5-feet-tall. Okay, so the boy in blue probably isn’t a criminal, but we’re not sure that the mom ISN’T one, either. Is it even legal to handcuff your children?
Grandpas of Anarchy
If you are a ‘Sons of Anarchy’ fan, you know how important it is for a biker to always stay with their ride. We’re sure that this fella is just living the ‘Sons’ lifestyle. When you can’t ride your sick chopper, you have to make do. We would have loved to see him rocking the Gorilla Bars in the front, though we guess he’d still need his basket. Actually, alternative take for this photo: America needs to diet, more.
Just Wonderful Lighting
When you are a social media influencer, you always have to be ready for an impromptu photo shoot. We’re not sure if she’s doing a sponsored post for a cheese company, or if she just really likes the fluorescent lighting bouncing off of the tortillas, but here she is. Life can be hard in the era of social media, sometimes you have to hop onto a pile of Kraft singles in order to get the shot.
Therapy Starts Tomorrow
When boys hit a certain age, they start to get curious about … stuff. This picture shows a child coming face-to-face, pardon our expression, with a new period in his life. In the best-case scenario, he is merely looking up at his mom. In the worst-case scenario, well, maybe his mom should be looking after her pervy son. In either event, that kid is going to need a talking to from his mom OR a therapist.
Ride or Die
You can fall asleep anywhere, at least when you are tired enough. Why would falling asleep in a motorized chair in a superstore be any different? Actually, we might want to give this guy a wellness check. He’s either in a deep sleep or traversing through the afterlife. Either way, grab a mirror and make sure that he’s still breathing!
25 Cent Hair
We’re actually really impressed by the length of this lady’s hair. We’re also impressed by the consistent curls. A part of us has to wonder, though, what the point of it all is. Is she a diehard Rapunzel fan? Does she love Ramen noodles? Is she hiding something beneath those curly locks? We will say this, for all of the extreme hair that you’ll find in a superstore, at least hers looks clean!
Area 51 Escapee
We thought that everyone was joking about storming Area 51. Guess not. We have to assume that this giant bubble-gum looking person is actually an escapee from the mysterious government base. After all, who would willingly go shopping at a superstore while dressed like this? Actually, looking at the other pictures on this list, we can totally believe that this is just a regular shopper who loves superstores almost as much as dressing up like chewed gum.
Cheetara Costume (Alternate)
Cheetara was always one of our favorite ‘ThunderCat’ characters. Though the cartoon was notably silly, modern filmmakers are always looking for ways to give an old IP a gritty reboot. We suppose that this person is dressed like a semi-realistic Cheetara, right? Well, she’s not auditioning for the film.. She’s also not even doing a photoshoot. So, uh, she just… likes dressing like this. Huh.
You Are Overencumbered
Could one image so capably sum up the state of daily life for the average American? Probably not, so we won’t try to make that implication. Instead, we’ll just say this, that scooter was NOT built for this kind of load. Also, if you can stand on the scooter, you probably shouldn’t be riding it, right? Wait, can we just take electric scooters whenever we want? Can I moto surf in superstores now?
Bret Michaels is Looking Rough
Bret Michaels is a legend in the glam metal scene. As the lead singer of Poison, Michaels has sold more than 40 million records around the world. Of course, time gets the best of everyone, eventually. Wait, you’re saying that this ISN’T Bret Michaels? Does this person at least like Poison? They’ve never heard of them? Oh, well, carry on then, I guess.
Shopping With His Best Friend
Remember that image two slides ago, where two women were sitting on the same scooter? Yeah, we don’t think scooters are made for that kind of double-riding. THIS kind of double-riding, however, is totally cool by us. Who wouldn’t want to bring their Iguana with them during a trip to a superstore? Look at how nice he is sitting! We don’t know anything about Iguanas, but this one looks hungry for a pretzel.
Buddy the Elf?
‘Elf’ is one of the greatest Christmas films of all time. Not coincidentally, Buddy the Elf is one of the purest Christmas characters of all time. With that being said, we do not think that this is Buddy. In fact, we’re pretty certain that if this IS Buddy, he has fallen on some pretty strange times. We’re going to pass on saying hello, though we dig the color motif.
The Hero We Need
All kinds of silly pictures go viral on the internet. With that being said, this picture actually deserves it. We’re not saying that we loved the show ‘Lambchop’ as a kid. We’re just saying that, well, given the opportunity to look at a cute little baby lamb, we’re going to take it and we are going to spread the word all about it. This is probably the purest image you could find in a superstore.
Cookie Monster Cosplay
We are a fan of the cosplay scene. Dedicated artists taking the time to craft a costume of their favorite characters underlies what cosplaying is all about. We’ve got to give two thumbs up to this gentleman. We assume that he is cosplaying as the Cookie Monster. At least, we hope so. Still, their cart certainly doesn’t have any cookies in it. Wait, this isn’t a cosplay? What’s going on here?
Dressed as ‘Tries Too Hard’
There are three types of people at a costume party. You have the standard person who buys a cheap costume but fits in. You have the lazy person who refuses to dress up. Last and definitely not least, you have the person who tries WAY too hard to impress with their costume. Who even dresses up for Christmas?
Battle Hardened Warrior
In the hit fantasy series, ‘Game of Thrones’, infamous warrior Khal Drogo grows his braid until he is defeated by his enemy. Basing this person’s hair off of that fictional world can reveal only one truth, this person is the ultimate warrior. of course, they might also love ribbons. Or bows. Or braids. Still, we like to imagine this person beating the heck out of Khal Drogo. Life is funny like that.
Wearing a Superstore Shirt
If you grew up kind of poor, you likely are already familiar with the infamous ‘Shirt’. Superstore shirts can come in a variety of different styles and designs. What holds these shirts together, however, is the fact that they have some kind of absurd text on them. We never see people actually wear these shirts, at least not usually. Here, we see this mad lad wearing a superstore shirt IN a superstore. Amazing!
Don’t Wait Behind Her
We built up the mythos behind the infamous superstore shirt and here we are showing you a SECOND one. Your lucky day, right? For some reason, we don’t really feel compelled to wait behind her in line. You can go right ahead of us, we’ll just go through the self-checkout. Oh, the self-checkout is broke? Well, I guess we’ll plug our noses.
Suspenders of God
If superstores wanted to get in on the suspenders market, this picture could be the perfect viral marketing promo for them. After all, those suspenders must have been tested by God himself in order to do what they are doing in this picture. Seriously, these suspenders are amazing, unless we’re really just looking at a naked guy underneath that big guy’s shirt.
Dracula Top, Schoolgirl Bottom
We are all for embracing our inner self. We love the idea of making the most out of our outfits in order to showcase our personality. Having said that, we’re pretty sure this guy might have more than one personality. Going from Dracula to a schoolgirl is just an odd transition.
Really? I Mean, Really?
We are big fans of trying out products before you decide to buy them. Of course, we are also big fans of changing rooms, too. This guy is either drunk, ill or in desperate need of a trip to the hospital. Either way, let’s get some pants on big guy.
Wait A Minute
Did you know that during feudal times, having children was an important way to improve productivity at home? It’s true! Being able to literally raise your own workers was a big deal. Having said that, we thought the practice might have died out. Nope, still alive and well at a superstore.
The Mightiest Mullet
Business up front and party in the back, that’s what a mullet signifies, right? Well, this is no regular mullet, you mere mortal. This is the Mightiest Mullet of all time. We’re simultaneously impressed and turned off by this image. It gives us a feeling deep in our gut that we just can’t ignore.
We all have hobbies and passions that make us unique. Some people like soccer, other people like grilling out. Some people like wearing five fox tails on the back of their cargo shorts while they shop in their sandals and a dragon stylized button-up shirt. Isn’t life just weird and wonderful?
Tough Shopping Trip
While we question this guy’s wardrobe choice, we don’t question his need to lay down. Whenever we finally swipe our card at the checkout, we want to fall down and cry, too. Of course, it probably wouldn’t have hurt if this guy waited until he at least got to his car before doing this. That’s an image that you can’t un-see.
Drunk Frito Fight
Have you ever been so inebriated that you had to fight a giant display of Frito Lay products? No? Really? Well, I guess that just leaves us and this drunk dude in relatively lonely company. We would have probably squared up on some Doritos though, at least if it were us.
No UPC Code
We have a couple of thoughts about this picture. First and foremost, we’re pretty sure that this baby doesn’t have a UPC code. He isn’t gonna scan! Second, grocery store scanners are absolutely disgusting. Why in the world would you put your child on one of them? Nobody wants this, not even the mother.
Old Country Road to a superstore
Listen, if you live in Texas and you need something at a superstore, you find a way to get there. If your car is broken down, all you really need is one horsepower. We’re not sure how this guy is going to work the cart. Or where he is going to park his horse. Or… actually, maybe don’t take your horse to the store.
Got Yer Belly
This man is either proud of his belly or incapable of understanding how t-shirts work. Honestly, we’re not sure which scenario bothers us more. In any event, pull your shirt down bud, you’re not exactly rocking a solid six-pack right now. He IS wearing a watch and glasses, so he understands how other clothing accessories work, so that’s good.
Teenager Sam Sieracki Soars to New Heights, Solving Rubik’s Cube in Free Fall
Seventeen-year-old Sam Sieracki has etched his name into the Guinness World Records by solving a Rubik’s Cube while skydiving over West Australia. Jumping out of an airplane at 14,000 feet, Sam achieved the remarkable feat in just 28.25 seconds, breaking the previous record of 30.14 seconds held by Nitin Subramanian of the United States.
In a daring display of skill and concentration, Sam described the intense experience of solving the Rubik’s Cube in free fall. “It’s really intense. It’s very loud because you’ve got all the wind in your face,” Sam explained. “So it’s a lot harder to concentrate than if I’m just on the ground solving it… my record on the ground is a lot faster than in the air – it’s about 6.5 seconds.”
Despite facing challenges in the sky, Sam, who is both a speed-cuber and a skydiving enthusiast, tackled the feat with enthusiasm. It took him five attempts to surpass the previous record, showcasing his determination and resilience.
Sam, who has been attending speed-cubing competitions since 2017, expressed confidence in breaking the record but admitted that the challenge proved to be more demanding than expected. “Having attended speed-cubing competitions since 2017, I was confident about breaking the record, but it ended being far more challenging than expected and took me five attempts to achieve,” Sam remarked.
The teenager’s passion for both speed-cubing and skydiving has been a driving force in his pursuits. “I decided that I want to be a solo skydiver, so waited impatiently to turn 16 … so that I could become a licensed skydiver and go by myself,” Sam shared. “Since then, I’ve gone up to Jurien Bay every school holidays to do a few jumps, and am now up to 80 jumps in my second year of skydiving.”
Acknowledging the support of his loved ones, Sam expressed gratitude to his biggest fans and supporters, his mother and girlfriend, who encouraged him to break the world record. As a self-proclaimed rookie in the skydiving world, Sam doesn’t set grand goals but aims to continue improving his skills with each jump, all while enjoying the thrilling experience.
Daughter Overwhelms Parents Restaurant With Customers By Posting On TikTok
A seven-second video posted on TikTok by Jennifer Le has saved her parents’ Vietnamese pho restaurant from going out of business. In the video, Le showed the empty restaurant and her dad looking sad at the register. She then asked for social media’s help to keep the restaurant in business. The restaurant is in California and was doing ok before the pandemic, but has since had trouble getting customers to dine in.
The video went viral, and within hours, it had garnered millions of views and shares.

Le’s video has since become a source of inspiration for many people who are struggling with similar issues. It serves as a reminder that even the smallest actions can have a significant impact, and that we all have the power to make a difference in our communities.
Massive Sandcastle Built by Auckland Brothers Impresses Scores of Beachgoers
When you have run out of Christmas ideas, nothing beats going to the beach and letting your creative juices flow. That’s what two brothers in New Zealand did this past Boxing Day and ended up with an amazing and eye-catching sandcastle.
After building a massive sandcastle on Boxing Day, two Auckland boys gained praise from other people around Mt Maunganui’s beach area that day.
Jared and Paul Brandon spent 10 hours that day building a two-meter-high sandcastle, beginning with a sketch of the structure “on a piece of A4 paper” and beginning at high tide. The pair plans to turn this into a Boxing Day ritual.
On Christmas Eve, the brothers started strategizing on how to top last year’s one-meter-high tower on Boxing Day 2021.
Because Jared and Paul are “very competitive,” they wanted to outdo their performance from the previous year. Before beginning their construction, the two searched online for sandcastle designs after visiting Bunnings to get tools, buckets, as well as a footrest.
Both residents and visitors have expressed admiration and astonishment at the beautiful creation.
Jared chuckles, “A guy is assessing how tall it is currently with his beach umbrella.
Jared informed the media, “This one is 2 meters, so we needed a few footstools to climb up tall enough and also used a builder’s level so it didn’t topple over.
The 150-liter pail was the biggest we were able to use, and the traditional household bucket was a fairly small one. We purchased them both from Bunnings.
Paul explains, “There are a few techniques, such as two portions of water to one portion of sand.”
Then came the spatulas to shape the windows, then toothpicks for creating the roof piles, as well as the straws for blowing off the “extra sand.”
The previous night, the two worked on it until 8 p.m., and unlike last year, it is still standing.
“Time went by incredibly quickly; it seemed like we were only at the beach for five hours, instead of ten.” “Paul spoke to the press.
He claims that while working for a California hotel plus learning how to construct sandcastles as a kid-friendly activity, he acquired the skill there about eight years ago.
“Now that he’s used that knowledge and developed it, he taught me. Therefore, for the previous four to five years, whenever we had the time, we would construct a sandcastle once a year ” says Jared.
The two, who are both camera operators, intend to go much further next year and are hoping to enlist the aid of a larger family.
We will attempt to teach my sister as well as my brother-in-law to assist us as they appear interested this year. “We are striving to dredge up more relatives to get involved in creating a village in 2023.”
Man Finds $47,000 Historic Ring
England is very much metal detector country. The land outside the big cities is stuffed full of artifacts and leftovers from ancient times, ranging from before the Romans’ arrival to the Middle Ages and more. So, it’s not surprising, with the blessing of local farmers, that many a fellow with a metal detector is out there spending a Saturday or Sunday scanning through a fallow farm field to see what might be found. As it turned out, David Board was one of those hunters, and he just happened to come across a very small gold ring in one of his ventures.
Located outside of Dorset, Board was busy scanning a pasture field and had been doing so for hours. The sun was late in the sky, and Board was about to wrap up when his machine pinged a definite metallic substance under the soil he was waving the sensor over. Sure enough, pinpointing the location and then digging specifically into that spot, Board unearthed a very small gold ring.
It was in the farm soil, the ground typically tilled for planting, but this particular field had been used for cattle instead. So, five inches underground, the ring remained until Board found it and pulled it back into the daylight. At first, he chalked up the discovery to just another piece of metal from old times, he cleared off the dirt, pocketed the ring and kept going. Then, at the end of the day, Board went home and washed off his finds in the sink. It was only then that he realized what that ring actually was.
While the method of metal detecting in England gives archaeologists utter heart attacks every time they hear a similar story, the finds are generally split between the metal detector and the farm owner, unless the farm owner just waives off the matter and lets the hunters keep whatever they find. Whichever the case in this instance, the ring was no small trinket. It turned out to be an exceedingly well-crafted and rare gold wedding ring from the Medieval period and in very good condition. To be auctioned off later this year, the find is expected to net between 30,000 to 47,000 British Pounds.
The only surprise to anyone hearing the story in England these days is why the local farmers still allow detectors to scan their fields without any stake in the finds.
Gold Miners Dig Up a Lot More than Ancient Gold
Gold miners are used to finding all sorts of things from ancient times. It’s not uncommon to find relics of prior miners, old habitats, animal remains and even dinosaur fossils as they dig deep into the earth or excavate large areas. However, it’s not an everyday occurrence to find a practically intact mummy of a baby mammoth.
Based on the estimates possible on first evaluation of the mummified baby mammoth found on June 21 by operations at the Klondike gold deposit, way up in the northern part of Canada, miners discovered a baby female mammoth assumed to be probably 30,000 years old. An occasional dinosaur or mammoth bone is uncommon but a regular occurrence. However, finding a complete set of remains of a baby mammoth is extremely rare and a big news in the world of paleontology and biology. Even better, the specimen is practically complete. Most times the remains have been tampered with by other animals or hunting and scavenging. Then nature moves things around even further and separates parts. In this case, however, the baby mammoth was complete, intact and well-preserved.
Named Nun cho ga but the local tribes, the find essentially means big baby animal, no surprise. All the skin and hair is intact, which makes the find extremely valuable in terms of understanding exactly how junvenile mammoths looked and probably behaved mechanically as well as physically. In terms of scientific information, the find is huge. It’s similar to finding an entire painting by a famous artist versus just having a brush he or she might have used.
Locked away in permafrost for centuries, the baby mammoth was literally preserved in the earth’s freezer, untouched by bacteria or the elements for an amazing amount of time. Scientists evaluating the specimen guess that the juvenile likely passed away earlier, maybe from sickness, as its pack was moving since there were no predatory marks on it or scattering of remains. Or, also likely, the animal may have gotten stuck in a deep mud pit or quicksand and was quickly buried, protecting it from rot or degradation.
The last time anyone found a North American baby mammoth in good condition was in 1948, some 70 plus years ago. That one was named Effie, and was located inside a gold mine in Alaska. Additionally, another more recent find was in 2007 in Siberia. That find was estimated to be much older, at 42,000 years of age. It was comparative to the same size as Nun cho ga, which means the two together will provide some interesting comparative notes and years of study going forward. It’s enough to make a dinosaur scientist get giggly.

What Happened When This ‘Duck Dynasty’ Legend Chopped Off His Beard?
