Everyone needs a little laughter every once in a while. Sometimes that laughter can come about in intentional ways, such as through comedy or some other form of entertainment. There are other times in which unintentional situations occur that can bring a smile to your face. And other times that are a little less funny and lean more toward the disturbing. Most people occasionally end up in predicaments that they themselves did not intend to get into. How did these people get stuck in these situations? Let’s find out.
How Thirsty Could Someone Be?
Crime is pretty much rampant everywhere around the world. Some people would prefer to result to illegal means just to get something for free. The adrenaline rush of committing such crimes adds to the negligent behavior which causes some people who commit crimes to end up in very strange circumstances. The racing thoughts that must go on in a criminal’s mind could get them caught in a literal jam. Some TV shows have come out of these types of failed crimes, and some of these shows have labels such as “dumb criminals” and such.
How thirsty could someone be for a can of Coca-Cola? This question would be easily answered for someone who had been in a desert and dying of thirst. Some people just want to go down the hard road and end up getting stuck in a vending machine dispenser. Such was the case of a high school boy in 2012 who decided that he was so thirsty that he wanted a free soda. He stuck his hand in the dispenser part of the vending machine and remained stuck for an hour. Police and firefighters used a variety of hydraulic tools, crowbars, chisels, and axes to free the high school teen. After an hour of hard work the boy was freed, or so he thought. He more than likely faced a charge for petty theft for trying to steal a soft drink.
A Literal ATM Money Jam
People have all types of jobs ranging from those that are considered safe to some have the most dangerous jobs that you could ever imagine. There are jobs that may seem like safe jobs but can turn into something other than safe. In Texas a gentleman was replacing a lock at a bank at an ATM machine. This sounds simple enough, but what happened next might make you laugh.
The man left his cell phone in his truck, meaning that he could not contact anyone as he got stuck inside of the ATM machine. He then noticed that customers were withdrawing money from the machine. The man put a note in the machine which said “Please help, I’m stuck here and I do not have a phone. Please call my boss.” Some people in the drive-thru thought it was a joke, until the man began hollering for help. The police came afterwards and kicked down the door where the man was trapped and freed him.
Baby Seats Are Not Just For Babies
Who would have thought that baby chairs are just for babies. McDonalds, affectionately known as Mickey D’s, has the distinction of serving millions and even billions. This conspicuous fact is even printed on their signs. Someone might suspect that since there are billions being served at McDonalds, that they apparently do not have enough seats for customers.
This may or may not be true in a lot of cases. Since McDonalds is worldwide, it adds to the billions of people who are not able to sit down at their restaurants in a chair. This fellow in Ireland must have been one of those guys who did not have a proper seat, and so he chose to sit in a baby chair. He ended up with his rear end being stuck inside the baby chair.
The Mayor Ends Up In A Bind
The usual campaign of political figures includes millions of dollars being spent and a lot of traveling to go along with those millions of dollars. It is usually the same routine in which a candidate for mayor or governor goes around to the people to garner support and win them over. Some people use their gift of gab and some may even go to other extremes. Bill Clinton and his saxophone playing went a long way in the 1992 presidential election.
It seems like Boris Johnson was trying to do something different in 2012 as he was on the campaign trail for mayor. He ended up on a zip line, supposedly trying to gather support. He ended up becoming stuck on the line. He was reeled down to safety.
Not The Porta Potty Of All Places!
You have all seen them before, the dreaded portable toilet. No one knows what is inside of those things but only a select few. These brave souls have ended up using this portable toilet, or which some people would call a Porta Loo. Imagine all of the germs that accumulate in one of these things. Only out of desperation would most people use the portable toilet.
Imagine having someone get stuck in one of these portable toilets. Imagine what could happen to a poor unfortunate soul. You could not fathom this, but this poor guy could. This guy got stuck somehow in a portable potty in South Africa. We have to wonder how he got stuck in the porta-potty. Ewwww.
As Above, So Above
For those of you who love roller coaster rides, you know it is the ultimate thrill. The up-and-down motion of the ride can give you a rush, or even butterflies in the tummy. An empty stomach would be best before going on a roller coaster ride because anything can happen at high speeds. If everything moves along fine on a roller coaster ride, then all is well.
In rare cases a ride can actually become stuck. It is one thing to be stuck in a comfortable position. These unfortunate people were on a thrill ride in China and they just happened to get stuck upside down.
A Hole In The Wall Didn’t Help This Guy
Those prison bars do not bend so easily. Many criminals know this, but it is only natural to try and think of a way to escape from the cage. There are some guys that can actually bend bars, or so it is said. There are even prisoners who can break out of handcuffs. For the average ordinary guy in jail, this is not possible, so what would be the next best thing besides breaking out the hard way?
This guy in a Brazilian jail has the answer. He decided to go through the wall as a path of least resistance. He did not expect to get stuck in the wall, nor did he expect to get caught by the guards.
Anakin Skywalker Costumes Don’t Fit Like This One
Most children in school love to stand out. Some stand out in sports or other activities, and others have a unique talent. There is a special day called show-and-tell in which kids display their talents in front of their class.
Sometimes talent can be risky, especially when you have untapped talent. The kid in the image tried to impress the class with his acting skills and pretended to be Anakin Skywalker from the Star Wars franchise. The kid was pretending to battle Boba Fett and he got stuck inside of the chair. Luckily the force was with him and he got out of his costume.
Pass The Olive Oil, Please
It seems like this guy was trying to take a bath or a shower. Something is actually missing here… can you take a guess as to what is missing? This is a very unusual picture, and if you have not noticed that this guy does not have any clothes on which is very strange. Several scenarios could arise from just this image.
This person was either drunk or did this intentionally for Instagram views. If the guy was drunk, he probably thought the washing machine was a bath tub. Someone contacted Australian firefighters and used olive oil to free this man.
Caught In The Air Vent
There must be a shortage of late night stores in some areas around the country. Some people just do not have the time of day to go and purchase items from the store in the morning or in the afternoon. Some evenings are occupied which makes things worse, and so stores started staying open late at night. Some people may get sick and they have to go to a store at the most unlikely time in order to relieve their infirmities.
This guy must have gone to the store and saw that it was closed. He decided to take the roof route and climbed up, trying to get in through a vent. It did not quite work out for him as he found himself in quite the jam.
Another Failed Jail Escape
In the previous entry, the guy could not make it through the bars. He then decided to go through the wall. He found the unexpected when he came out of the wall. He saw light at the end of the tunnel. The kind of light that he saw was flashlights that were being pointed at him by the prison guards and he more than likely got a longer vacation time in jail because of it.
Here is another guy who tried to escape the hard way. This guy was in a prison in Mexico and he tried to escape through some bars. He then found a hole in the wall and tried to get through that as well. He was stuck from the torso upward and had to wave hi upside down as the guards caught him.
My Mobile Phone is Everything to Me
We cannot live without our technology these days. Everything seems to revolve around technology. The good and the bad are all captured on cell phones and most of the time are uploaded to social media sites and video sites. Everyone benefits from the use of cell phones from the common man to the rich and famous. When someone loses their phone, it is like a pet that becomes lost and that pet must be found.
The gentleman in this photo just happened to drop his phone in the toilet. He then found himself stuck in the toilet trying to grab his cell phone. Hopefully he did not grab anything squishy down there!
Could You Tell Me How To Get Out Of This Thing?
You may have never heard of what is known as a traffic bollard. A bollard was originally used to secure vehicles and to keep them from moving or in the case of sailing vessels from sailing away. The bollard is common in the United Kingdom and a few other countries as well. They serve their purpose and do not seem like something that is particularly special.
This gentleman thought highly of a traffic bollard and decided to check out the contents. He ended up trying to wear the bollard and succeeded. The only problem is that it went on easy and did not come off easily. He must have gotten a lot of attention trying to wear one of these bollards.
Too Embarrassed to Call for Help
Pride is everything to a man. Some men cannot let go of their pride and hold it dear to their heart. No man wants to be embarrassed by certain types of situations, and so their pride shields them from embarrassment. Even in the most perilous situations the shield of pride can be used, but to what extend does the shield need to be put aside?
This guy who got stuck in a river in China refused to put his pride aside and instead wanted to be stuck in quagmire. He was too embarrassed to even call for help. The kindness of strangers finally got him freed.
Take Some Pictures Before Putting Him Back Behind Bars
The whole Mr. Fantastic thing would be ideal in a prison cell. Imagine being Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four. Now imagine being able to stretch yourself into any shape. This prisoner in Argentina must have had a Mr. Fantastic moment and tried to escape from prison. When he was found trying to escape, it became picture time for the prison guards.
The prison guards took pictures of this man as he tried the old Mr. Fantastic routine. This man stole a bicycle and was arrested for it. Who would escape from prison because of a stole bicycle? The prison guards had fun putting this on their social media pages.
Every Kid’s Dream is to Get Stuck Inside a Claw Machine
If you have ever tried your luck with a “claw machine,” then you know how frustrating it can be to play this game. You put a quarter or token into it and you move the claw to whatever prize you are trying to grab. The only catch is that the claw is timed, and you have to grab something before the claw retracts. When you attempt the grab, the claw closes before you can grab your prize.
This young boy probably had the same frustrations with this claw machine. He did the next best thing to using the claw from the machine and decided to just climb in and use his hands. He got stuck inside the claw machine but boy does he look happy.
Open the Gate Instead of Going Through it Next Time
That gate seems too high to get over and too low to get under. This guy is stuck in the middle, and seems like he is not having a fun time. This is perhaps the most humorous and non-humorous photo in this whole article. It seems like the other guy is trying to pull the person who is stuck through the fence. Good luck with that one.
Several things could explain this photo. The most likely thing that is going on here is these two folks are trying to get onto some property that is either closed or there is a no trespassing sign posted somewhere. It is like these people have to get in. They should have tried to find an entrance instead of going in the hard way.
The Clothes Go In, Not The People
I hope this person is not a repair person, because they would more than likely never be employed again. It really does not seem humanly possible that a person could fit into a washing machine like this. This is more than likely humor than anything else. In turn, this would be a lighter alternative to the things that you have seen thus far.
Hopefully no one started that machine. The agitator would not be so sparing to this person who got stuck in the machine. This seems more like one of those “planking” pranks that occurred a few years ago.
Garbage Diving In Broad Daylight
Dumpster diving is pretty common among those who have accidentally thrown away something that has been deemed valuable. There have been cases in which people have accidentally thrown something away at the spur of the moment like money or some other important item and people will put their “getting dirty” clothes on and literally climb into the dumpster to get their stuff.
There is only one problem with this image if you have not noticed: This is not a dumpster, but a trash receptacle. This person could have taken the lid off of the top of the receptacle instead of diving head first into the receptacle.
How Do Ninja Turtles Go Home?
This reminds me of two things, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the video game Paperboy. There is a manhole on the video game and there is also a derelict who appears to be drunk on the video game as well. Imagine the derelict guy falling into a manhole. This is what supposedly happened to this fellow. He was drunk and somehow he fell into this manhole.
I often wonder how the Ninja Turtles go in and out of the sewers with their turtle shells attached to them. They just happen to go in and out of the sewer with no problems at all. Too bad the same cannot be said for this fellow.
