From people ruining the life of a neighborhood squirrel and making shockingly offensive cakes, to people trying to order 26 pancakes at once, here are 17+ people who have some explaining to do.

1. "The amazon package I ordered came with an empty used cough drop paper inside..."

Just seal that right back up, and post it right the way back!

9. "Pizza place in my town is known for being stoners, this was their sign today."

Reddit | ComplexToxin

Aside from the obvious fact that they've missed an apostrophe in there, it's good that they're trying to be accurate about what's going on!

It's good to know that there is someone out there looking out for stoned people, the patron saint of stoners!

It's not even like you can invite the poor fella in what with the social distancing currently being enforced. You're a monster.

Reddit | double_reedditor

I wonder how many people will be applying to have this as their new license plate.

Exercise your mind instead with some excellent binge-worthy television! Maybe even watch a documentary or two!

16. Dammit Plants!

Twitter | holy_schnitt

How are you killing a plant? You just water them and feed them? They're impossibly easy pets! Unless you've got one of them bonsai trees, holy hell they die easily!

17. Wait... What?

Reddit | azgrunt

I don't know what it would entail to "corn teen" yourself, but it sounds incredibly unpleasant.

You'd have some serious explaining to do if you gave these out at a party. However, it's pretty accurate for how most people are feeling at the moment I think.

28. Hmmm...


Pubs are the real difference. Getting drunk in your home really isn't the same as getting drunk at a bar. I don't know why, but it isn't.

30. I'm So Sorry
