August 15th, 2019

We’re all guilty of striking a pose now and then, especially if we’re on vacation and want to preserve some happy memories. But usually, we only share the good shots with the carefully planned photos.

It’s those awkward “in the moment” poses we don’t intend to make that are the real gems!

To see real life at its funniest, check out these 40 funny poses we’re all guilty of making.

1. Where’s The Bed Pose

This is what happens right after you turn off the lights and try to find your bed. You end up stumbling around your bedroom, hoping the first thing you run into is soft and inviting, and doesn’t stub your toe!
