Tales From the Road – Strange Photos Captured While Driving!

J.R.R. Tolkien once wrote, “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door.” Take a drive down the road and you never know what you might come across! Thanks to the prevalence of camera phones, we now have documentation of all the wild and weird stuff humans get up to while they are out and about. 

Keep on reading for 20 tales from the road and the strange images that tell their story!

Gladiator Out For a Ride

We have a feeling that these motorcycling enthusiasts saw the film Gladiator at some point in their lives. We are always a fan of seeing inventive vehicles on the road and this motorcycle-turned-chariot is no exception. What do you think of this gnarly looking ride? Would you be down to hop on?

One Way to Haul a Couch

For some, minimalism means being able to fit your entire life inside of a car. When you can fit all of your furniture on the back of a bicycle, does that mean you have ‘beaten’ minimalism? We aren’t sure, but we know that this cyclist is probably regretting this idea already! This could be a new Crossfit workout too, so we’re not sure what’s going on!

These Cars Smell Fishy

Is there anything more entertaining than a gimmick car sitting in traffic? If your eyes were drawn to the mondo shark-jaw bus, we get it. With that being said, did you notice the fish fillet car right in front of it? We didn’t see this Jaws remake coming!

If you could have your own gimmick car, what would yours be?

Following the Rules

In life, there are two sorts of people, leaders, and followers. Here we have a motorist that falls firmly in the former category. We totally understand the desire to buck the rules, maybe don’t drive up a closed walkway. We’re not even mad at the motorist, to be fair, as this was quite the impressive feat due to the fact that they did not die of embarrassment.

Avengers Level Event

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, wouldn’t people naturally be afraid of superheroes? After all, every time they arrive, some world-ending stuff is going down! With that being said, we are all for spotting Captain America on a motorcycle while stuck in traffic. Maybe he could let us ride his shield to the front!

Different Kind of Passenger

We appreciate how important snakes are to our world. We also love taking care of animals, even when they are exotic. With that being said, if this snake was in our car — we are calling a cab. Do you think this snake is a pet with a brave owner? Or did this snake sneak into the car?

A Smooth Ride

We’ve been staring at this car for an embarrassingly long time now and we are no closer to any answers. What is this vehicle? How is it so smooth and seamless? And why does it remind us of a villainous car from Speed Racer? We can already see people begin to rubber-neck as they drive by, thinking the same questions.

Technically it Fits

This image was taken in a small town somewhere in Pennsylvania. Typically, when you move a long ladder, you do so by fixing it to your roof. This driver had an entirely different idea. While it may technically be working, we’re not sure if this is the route that most people want to go if you don’t want a ticket.

Destroying a Road

Do you ever wonder why roads are under construction for so long? If so, this picture probably give you a pretty good answer! This driver drove down a five-lane road that was under construction, ignoring signs to move lanes. Instead, she drove through fresh concrete and was summarily cited with destruction of property. Her insurance company will have to pay for the entire road!

Real Life Rocket Raccoon

Sure, seeing Captain America on a motorcycle was cool, but check out Rocket Raccoon! Okay, maybe this raccoon isn’t the same Rocket from Guardian of the Galaxies but he is still pretty cool! We’re not sure what situation warrants a raccoon in the cab of a semi-truck, but we’re here to find out.

Improvement on Littering

Perhaps we have a soft spot for the environment but when we see cigarette butts on the ground, we get furious! This driver figured out a way to smoke without littering on longer rides. We’re not sure if this is entirely fool-proof, but at least he is trying! We can only imagine how bad that window smells, however.

Questionable Funeral Home

Death is a somber affair as well as an existential crisis we must all wrestle with at some point in our lives. With that kind of context, it can be a relief to see people adding humor to the situation. This funeral home director hauled a woodchipper behind their car. Who said composting wasn’t ‘in’ anymore?

Totally Humble (Really) (Not Really)

The best thing about being wealthy is rubbing it in the faces of your subordinates. Wait, that’s something only a sociopath does. This driver has a gold-plated Bugatti worth more than most people make in a year. The ‘Humble’ special license plate is the dressing on the ‘jerk’ sandwich that is this picture.

I’m Cargo, Morty, Cargo!

In the wonderfully weird universe of Rick & Morty, our favorite cynical scientist makes a habit out of transforming himself. We aren’t talking about any simple pickle this time, however, we are talking about a cargo truck! A cargo truck, Morty! Funniest thing I’ve ever seen. 

Mission Impossible: Babushka

Fifty years after the last Mission Impossible was released, Tom Cruise will return to the silver screen in MI: Babushka. Watch as a grandfatherl-y Ethan Hunt seeks vengeance after — Wait, this isn’t a movie. This is just some grandma in Russia hitching a ride! Screw it, let’s give her a movie too.

A Noisy Truck

Certain images can cause sounds to appear in your head. These so-called ‘noisy images’ have gained quite the following online. While we might be stretching the definition a bit, we think this truck fits in the same picture-album! Read the text on the back of this construction vehicle before telling us we are wrong!

By Thor’s Hammer

If you want proof positive that Marvel will never go out of date, take one look at this image. It’s freaking awesome! Rather than letting his beat-up Buick hold him down, this driver attached a replica of Thor’s hammer before transforming the entire ride. Now people are taking pictures of his car for entirely different reasons!

The Cutest Move

It looks like little Paw Paw packed his truck with cat treats and scratching posts for the big move. A quick stop for gas and we’re sure this litter will be right back on the road. Who doesn’t love catching a photo of a cat being adorable?  We think it is a safe guess to assume that the driver is a cat lover, wouldn’t you say?

A Koala Mother Babysits Three Joeys

The parents who have several young children at home often talk about the challenges that they face. Caring for even one very young child is certainly difficult. Having three kids like this just multiplies all of the associated obstacles. Strangely enough, many animal parents don’t quite seem to have the exact same issues. Then again, it’s possible that koala parents might have some of the same problems. 

Very young children tend to squirm and kick whenever they’re held. Parents who have twins sometimes have a difficult time holding both of the kids at once for that reason. They might get used to it, but it still might pose a lot of challenges physically. These situations are even tougher on the parents who actually have triplets. There are koala mothers who have to care for three joeys at once. A koala mother at the Billabong Zoo was in that situation recently. 

Human parents have certain inherently advantages. The fact that humans are comparatively tall certainly helps. Human infants and toddlers are very small compared to their parents. Many animal parents are not as fortunate, including the koala mother at Australia’s Billabong Zoo.

While these koala joeys are actually capable of climbing trees on their own, they seem to prefer resting on her back. While they’re still smaller than she is, the size difference is actually relatively modest. The mother koala seems to be only around three times the size of each individual joey. Since there are three of them, she seems to be at least somewhat overwhelmed. 

The koala joeys can’t seem to sit still, and all four of them seem as if they’re struggling to get comfortable and stay that way. They aren’t resting peacefully on the mother’s back. Instead, they’re constantly shifting and stepping on her. As this is happening, she’s still trying to hold onto the tree. They almost look as if they’re scratching her at times, which is enough to make anyone feel sorry for the mother koala.

It’s an entertainingly adorable image, but the mother koala still seems to be struggling to keep up with all of these joeys. She’s being remarkably patient, especially when people consider the situation overall. These koala joeys were not actually hers. She was just looking after them.

This sort of thing might surprise a lot of people, since koalas are not especially social animals. In fact, plenty of relatively unsocial animals will care for babies that aren’t theirs. They’ll still have the caregiver instinct, which can be helpful in a zoo environment. 

Koala joeys are actually very strongly connected to their parents emotionally. They spend months in pouches, and aren’t even remotely independent for a full year. It takes them even more time to become truly independent, and they’re still very attached to their parents from that point onward. This koala is not actually their mother, but they have the same sort of bonding instinct that her actual children would have. She’s acting as their mother, and that appears to be good enough for the joeys. 

Even though they could spend time on the tree alone, many of them are not going to want to do so. Koalas are generally very inactive animals. The mother koala in particular just seems to want to rest, and the joeys are not making that easy. Still, as energetic as they are, the joeys still settle down some of the time. 

It almost looks as if all four of them are going to fall any second. Still, all koalas are adapted to this sort of situation, and they’re astonishingly good at staying on trees.
