What is it about these photos that people find irresistible? I think it may be the fact that it allows us to laugh at ourselves and share our interests with others. When people can laugh at themselves it provides them with a tiny bit of a release. For example, when I am up to my elbows in dirty diapers, ramen noodles, and trying to complete my freelance work for the day, I can find a small sanctuary in the Mother photo above.
If you want to add a fun twist to these photos you can create your own. Add custom photos or a different twist on a favorite topic to make it all your own. For example, this “What I Really Do” photo about freelance blogging perfectly depicts how others, and myself, view my career choice. It makes me laugh to see that I am not alone, and that others understand the different stereotypes typical to this type of work. What do you think? What is your favorite “What I Really Do” funny photo
