Oh My, Did I Do That?

Via eyebombing.com.

A pair of eyeballs makes this, whatever-this-is, into a rather embarrassed-looking... whatever-this-is. 

Eyebombing, or the act of adding a pair of googly eyes to something, is a funny web joke that leaked into the real world many years ago. There's just something hilarious about turning your average inanimate object into a sentient creature sporting a pair of big, goofy goggle eyes!  There's even an entire subreddit devoted to the art of eyebombing.

Sometimes people add googly eyes to a framed photograph as a prank and just sit back and wait for someone to notice. Other times the googly eyes are added to something innocuous like a waterspout, instantly transforming said inanimate object into a creature with a face, instilling personality where it honestly has no business being.

Whatever the circumstances, one thing is clear: Adding googly eyes makes everything funnier! Check out 20 hilarious eyebombs that will inspire you to add some eyeballs everywhere you go.

Who Needs A Cobbler?

Clearly his girlfriend should have been more specific about what needed fixing. The sole of this shoe doesn't look too great, but there's no denying that this fix is awesome nevertheless.

Blasphemy or Just Good Comedy?

Via reddit u/thefurnace

We'll bet even the late, great JC would find this funny. If god didn't have a sense of humor, how do you explain how goofy some animals look even without adding googly eyes?

We've seen some really funny, bizarrely-human looking trees that let it all hang out, but adding googly eyes to them is a new high! This guy really looks like he's enjoying that railing. Om nom nom!
