I’m no scientist on this, but I have a sneaky suspicion that around 90% of the comedic episodes in our lives are based on some kinds of misunderstandings.
Somebody misreads something, another person has trouble hearing that phrase, and there you go. You can even write entire episodes of comedy TV shows like that.
But comedy strikes in real life too, and today, thanks to The Chive, we’ve collected two dozen hilarious misunderstandings that are just comedy gold. Enjoy!
1. When the cosmos fulfills your wish – with a slight misunderstanding.
2. Also, ‘Arbic’!
3. The marketing department didn’t think this through.
4. When modern technology gets in the way.
5. Well, sometimes misunderstandings inspire horror stories.
6. What the hell?
7. Pure COMEDY GOLD
8. If intentional, that’s one very talented photographer! Who needs Photoshop!
9. I’m… I’m not sure about buying this.
10. One day this is how someone will start World War 3 I swear.
11. ManLikeKofii spilled the beans.
12. Plot twist: The mom is a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey.
13. Hell is people judging your appearance.
14. Oh dear…
15. This looks like an episode of Dr. House
16. Grandad apparently had some different standards of beauty. Like looking 70 or something.
17. Dogs just never get angry.
18. I felt my mouth water, but then I wanted to puke!
19. A movie scenario right there!
20. This is just great!
21. Talk about squeezing in!
22. I kinda like this alternate reality!
23. When GPA and grandpa share the same letters. 🙁
24. We all know that person who wants to eat soap and detergents!
