I've been waiting for someone to do a comparison like this.
The ad whopper versus the sad whopper
There are many more images comparing fast food ads with their real counterparts where I found this one. Be sure to check them out!

This must be one of the weirdest traffic signs ever.
Weird road sign with 12 instructions in Gdansk
This sign in Gdansk, Poland, sets a 12 ton load limit to cross a bridge, except... well there are twelve different exceptions to this, including farm vehicles can cross no matter how much they weigh and the same is true for vehicles of a local firm. The sign has caused considerable confusion and has brought traffic to a halt as truckers have been trying to figure out if they were allowed to cross or not.

This must be one of the most convincing optical illusion I have ever seen.
Ceci n'est pas une spirale
Don't know where it originally came from, I found this optical illusion that looks like a spiral on Make's website . They also show a version traced by lines to help convince you that this really is NOT a spiral.

St. John's WART extract... yuck!
I don't care if he was a saint, I still don't want to ingest any extracts from his warts!

Sometimes reality is weirder than fiction. This is one of those cases.
If a painter would ever paint clouds this weird, everyone would think he had lost his mind or wonder what he had been drinking... and how much. Yet here they are, for real.
Who put that big pipe in the sky?
Who has been smearing whipped cream in the sky?
The clouds are oozing down!
Here is the awesome collection of weird clouds where I found these, there are many more there! Worth seeing!
