Have you failed at something recently? Probably. I definitely have. That’s why it makes me feel a lot better to look at collections of other people failing, maybe even slightly more than I am. As a species, we’re amazingly smart, and astonishingly dumb. And sometimes we just gotta point and laugh at ourselves.

Enjoy this short gallery of some of the most facepalm-inducing fails to be found on the internet.

1. This bizarre statement

I’ve read this 10 times and I’m no closer to guessing what the hell they’re talking about.

So if you’ve failed recently, just go back through that list and see if you can find at least one failure worse than your own. If you can, you’ve earned a victory treat. If you can’t, you’ve earned a consolation treat.

What’s the biggest fail you’ve seen lately?
