The real world is a very, very scary place. And the internet, while it occasionally provides respite from the horrors of reality, is often way worse than you can imagine. These cursed images will leave you disgusted and puzzled. The cringe pics in this gallery? Disturbing and mind-boggling. So why can't we look away? Perhaps it's a bit like anthropology. Maybe it's because we need to feel like relatively normal members of society. Whatever the reason, you're probably not going to be hungry any time soon.
Pepple really freak out about shoes. They're used as symbols of status (Louboutins) and are sold for exorbitant amounts of money. They garner praise for their ethics (Toms) and ridicule for their aesthetics (Crocs). But we all need to wear them. So it would make sense that there are numerous cursed and weirdo memes involving footwear. And we're happy to present them to you in one convenient place.
Are you feeling a bit of the old ennui? Is seasonal affective disorder numbing the emotions you once felt? Are you just bored of everything? We may have an antidote for you.

Sometimes we get so sucked into the monotony of life that we become numb to all the memes, tweets, and news stories that we consume. It's easy to mindlessly scroll the day away without feeling a single emotion. That's where our weekly dose of cringey, unsettling, and all-around cursed images comes in. The discomfort you'll feel from these cringe pics beats the near-depressing ambivalence of everyday life. You just might have to wash your eyes out when you're through.
Cursed images aren't for everyone, but we sure do love 'em. When you're forced to look at memes all day, there's something welcome and refreshing about the creepy and context-less images. Cursed images are having a bit of a moment now on Reddit, where "I Had A Dream Where I Kissed My Crush" memes are making the rounds. The meme juxtaposes the dreams of normie people who are preoccupied with their crushes, and weirdos who apparently have f*cked up dreams that belong in r/cursedimages.
We're well aware of the internet's myriad uses and benefits. We're able to keep in touch with friends who have scattered as we get older. We can express ourselves on social media. There are a million channels that connect people with similar interests. Unfortunately, some people are absolutely twisted and contribute boat loads of cringe that will burn the eyes and scar people who aren't prepared for it. So here we are, preparing you for the onslaught of pain these images will bring you. You're welcome.
In the age of Pinterest and YouTube tutorials, many people have turned to DIY to easily and creatively make gifts, decorations, and crafts in their spare time, or as a way to generate income. We're all about this. But some people, some deranged individuals with delusions of grandeur, opt to make absolutely horrifying creations that would shake Martha Stewart to her waspy aesthetic'd core. And guess what? We freakin' love it. We've put together some of the more cursed examples for you to feast your eyes on, and also to potentially ruin your appetite.
Every now and then we see a photo that boils our blood and makes us shake with anger. The r/mildlyinfuriatingis a mecca for these kinds of images. People share disturbing images from real life and from the depths of the internet that will get your grinds gearing in no time. After all, it's better to feel anger than the numbness we feel most of the damn time. Whether your mildly infuriating poison is food-related (well-done steak) or tech-related (nobody actually wants sticky keys turned on) we're willing to bet that something in here will piss you off.
Sure there's toilet humor, but these toilets are no joke. These kinda make you want to crap your pants. Not just cause they're weird and scary, but because a few of us would rather crap our pants than use them. For some scarier thrones of doom, here are toilets with threatening auras.
This guy found himself in quite the silly conundrum after wearing a "cursed shawl" alongside his shawl bro. Sounds like it sent his girlfriend into a bit of a tailspin, and she proceeded to aggressively question him on his sexuality. At a certain point, it just became clear that things weren't destined to be. Who knew a shawl could end up crushing a relationship with such swift precision.
