Ouch! 19 of the Worst Sunburns and Tan Lines EVER

via Reddit.

As a pasty white chick, I've had my fair share of terrible sunburns. I remember one time in particular when I went to Florida and, for some unknown reason, I thought I didn't have to use sunblock on my legs. "It's like my legs are made out of asbestos!" I joked to my friends. "They just never burn!"

Famous last words! The south Florida sun then laughed and laughed and laughed before smiting me down with the world's most painful sunburn from hips to toes. The five hour plane ride home was excruciating

Lesson learned! These days I'm a bit of a sunblock fanatic, and something tells me that all of the nineteen people in this gallery are now much, much more careful about covering up their skin when they're out and about. If not, well... I hope they enjoy looking like a wrinkly old hairless cat when they get older.

What? This is a gentleman who clearly enjoys a little light "moob" support. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

"Hey Steve, why don't you take off those white pants and get comfortable."

Oh, those aren't pants. Righty-oh.

Cool! Built-in wife-beater tank! What a time saver when getting dressed each morning.
