Photobombers Of The Day

Photobombers = people who hilariously ruin your nice little picture. Some call it "that guy"; we call it photobombing. A superb idea from Jocelyn; all photos from Facebook.




















WTF? Is that a ghost?












Go, dorky white guy!

    At least I finally know what I want to be when I grow up - a photo bomber!!!!!!

  3. I think that first one is my favorite.

  4. Holy shit...I haven't laughed like that in a long time.

  6. That last one... I nearly choked. Lordy.

  7. No, it's not a ghost. Don't be mean to Powder, Cary.

    ReplyDelete
  8. WOW. What I keep wondering is how the photographer missed all of this when taking the picture! That, or they thought it was funny and took the picture anyway.

  9. I like the MANage-a-tois! You made my day!!!

  10. I think I just found my new (free!) hobby. awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Those are great but the ghost was a little terrifying

    ReplyDelete
  12. Dorky White Guy is my new personal hero.

    ReplyDelete
  13. This was by far, hands down, my favorite of your lists ever. EVER. EVER. I love you cary.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yep, loved Dorky White Guy. The last photo with the guy making a girly face is pretty funny, too.
    WEre any of these photoshopped, or are they all real? Do you know?

  15. Thanks all but the credit goes to Jocelyn, who gave me the idea and the link to the pics.

    Gem.. what are you doing later?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ghosts and bottoms and nip slips oh my! Great post Cary. Now I feel ready to face the rest of my Friday.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Damn those are funny. The naked guy on the horse in the wedding picture I'm pretty sure is my fave, but it's hard to pick just one.

    No, the guys all in white shirts on the beach. That's the one.

    Those are just fan-freakin-tastic.

  18. Funniest ever!

    I hope the 4th from the last pic (girls in pool with dog) mooner isn't the girls father?
    If so EWWWW!!

  19. YES!! I now want to be a photo bomber too! I nearly wet myself laughing so hard!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I agree with all above comments...everyone. I want to be a photo bomber now.

    ReplyDelete
  21. To be honest, I was disappointed not to see myself in any of the pictures. I have been an avid photo bomber for the last 9 or so years. It's something that I have always thought was funny, but disappointing in that the one doing the bombing very seldomly sees the fruits of his performance.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I can't stop laughing!! The last guy's face is classic. Thanks for this great laugh on a boring Saturday!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't think I've laughed that hard in a while. God it takes so little to amuse me.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I thought the Olan Mills post was the best, but this tops it. LMAO!

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think I know the photobomber in the last picture!

  26. I've been doing that for years! I never knew it had a name. These pics made me laugh (in the library where I am the librarian) so much that I had to share with some of the students who were watching me laugh. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks Heidi. I made up the name because I wasn't sure what else to call it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My roommate, Tabbie, likes to do this with a peace sign all the time. She's a total amateur compared to these folks.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My day is now a happy one!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. No, that's not a ghost. It seems to be a person with the disease albinism, which robs them of pigment in the eyes, skin and hair. You really shouldn't be making fun of him.

  31. anu(s) -

    You must be new here.

    As much as I love the self-righteous and morally superior, this probably isn't the blog for you.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love it! What a clever post!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Great stuff! I love it.. thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Um, I think I've found my life's calling.

    ReplyDelete
  35. ROTFL! Thank you, I needed that laugh today! The 5th photo with the guy joining in on the cheer on the beach - priceless!

    As much as I love the self-righteous and morally superior, this probably isn't the blog for you.

    Pretty sure it's not a disease too.

    There was a photo bomber albino at my uni and he had to read everything thru, like, a mini telescope, scanning the page and all hunched over.

    Me and my best mate used to make pirate noises whenever he walked by. Yar!

    I can't believe all the comments from people who thought it was a ghost. I'm all "what ghost???". But then, I thought it was some dude in fancy dress who'd gone silly with white stage makeup.

    Well spotted anu. Good laffs all round. Great post.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have heard of this phenomenon, only they call them "That Guy". Even if it's a girl, dog, etc, it's always That Guy.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Man, these need to be edited like an early '60s group photo of Soviet cosmonauts.

    ReplyDelete
  39. This is really, really funny. I regret opening this at work, much to the dismay of pod neighbours...who wonder why i cannot stop laughing now.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Is that Angelo Tsarouchas picking his nose?

    ReplyDelete
  41. This made my day and was passed around my office for all to laugh at.

    Thank you. Here's to all photo bombers everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  42. So I get this phone call a minute ago telling me to check this site... and im definitely the guy in the pool... how in the hell? Hilarious none the less. Id love to lend my services for more photobombing if need be.

    ReplyDelete
  43. hahahaahhahaha I know all 3 people in the 4th from the top pic..the mooner is one of my best friends...I think I just shit my pants

    ReplyDelete
  44. Damnit, I want more!

    ReplyDelete
  45. This is really graceful, that is what was happening(passing) for the mind of these boys

    ReplyDelete
  46. We have got to have a round 2 of these!! They are hilarious!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hmmm. Big ramifications - Cambridge, class of 2007? Am I right to assume that your name refers to local field theory?

    ReplyDelete
  48. too good: had to re-post and link it on: http://1to10reviews.com/2008/05/07/messing-with-a-good-picture-sadly-funny/

    Great work guys

    ReplyDelete
  49. Is that Wilmer Valderrama in the 4th photo? And who is that girl in the aqua dress with the great rack?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I've had people come from locked offices a hallway away wondering what I'm laughing so hard at...

    f'ing hysterical!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm lolin' so hard. At work with tears in my eyes. Epic lolz.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yeah, great pics!

    And, yes, I guess that is Valderrama with some rather hot chicks. But the girl in the cyan dress is the hottest!

    ReplyDelete
  53. from BART (Holland): What a wonderful birthday-present sent to me by a close friend! I guess there is an universal language; photobombing:-). Elefantine lolz!!!

    Everybody understood except that tight-ass ANU. For some time I used to be a nurse taking care of people with all kinds of "diseases".

    Well now...dear ANU: most of that objectionable humor is coming from the "patients" themselves and "they" usually consider it a medicine.

    I almost feel sorry for you. Don't be surprised if sometime in the future some of your snapshots are photobombed. It's us, Hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hilarious! Opened it at work and now have the oldies looking at me with dismay (they walked passed where I had mooner pic opened).

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hilarious!!

    I had the mooner pic on screen when a bunch of oldies at work walked by. Oops.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I just found this one from one of your more recent post and I just had to link to it.

    Real tears are flowing down my eyes. The one that got me the most that I just this second giggled at again was the Ghost one. That was my first thought when I saw it and then when I read below the pic, snot came out my nose.

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I must thank Mama Dawg for sending me your way. I think the first one is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  77. It's always nice to get a chance to enjoy the work of competent colleagues.

    It's just too bad that none of these have me in them.

    ReplyDelete
  78. That's hillarious! My husband recently told me about Photobombing. He thinks it should be his new life ambition to see how many times he can get his butt on the internet by photobombing. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  79. It took me a minute but did anyone else noticed that the panty flasher has a baby bottle in her hand? What's that all about?

    ReplyDelete
  80. Okay upon closer examination I have determined it to be a water bottle. Perhaps I should have done that before posting before.

    ReplyDelete
  81. this is freakin' hysterical

    ReplyDelete
  82. This is the funniest thing ever. I cant wait to "photobomb" someone.... YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Dude... I've been doing this for years, but never seen how well I pulled it off... because the pics are always on a stranger's camera. I hope one of the many I've done before shows up here some day... so I can see how one finally turned out!
    Glad to hear about a website collecting this stuff - also good to inspire creativity in photo bombing!

    ReplyDelete
  84. We need a site to post these to and vote on the best of! I always have to do this when a camera is around!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Que vaina tan buena!
