Pareidolia: The Psychological Condition We've All Experienced

"Om nom nom... this laundry is delicious!"

Have you ever been going about your daily routine when suddenly you felt like you were being watched by a nearby inanimate object? Sure you have; we all have! This common psychological condition is known as pareidolia, and it can result in people seeing faces and other familiar patterns in everyday objects. According to Dictionary.com, "Pareidolia is the imagined perception of a pattern or meaning where it does not actually exist, as in considering the moon to have human features." So basically, if you've ever looked up and admired the Man in the Moon, you've experienced pareidolia.

As reddit's r/pareidolia subreddit points out, these patterns don't always have to be faces; it can be "things that look like something that it's not. Or sounds like something else. Or smells like something else. Things that unintentionally look like something else. PAREIDOLIA IS NOT JUST FACES!"

But honestly? The faces are the funniest examples of pareidolia. Check out these twenty funny examples of seeing goofy faces on everyday inanimate objects!

While you're mopping the floor with this thing, don't be surprised if you suddenly hear a low voice say, "You missed a spot."

Say what you will about this mop man, he's got a glorious head of hair.

Go Home Wall, You're Drunk

drunken wall
Via Ruin My Week.

If this wall looked any drunker we'd be handing it a bottle of water and calling it an Uber. Let's just hope it avoids getting covered in graffiti like some other drunk people we know.

Wasn't there a Disney movie about this smiling airplane? Something about happy planes, flying around, doing plane things. Can't think of what it's called, but was definitely about planes.
