These 20 Sarcastic Pictures Will Make You Rethink The Way We Live

Chances are you may have seen some of John Holcroft’s work before, as many of his thought-provoking illustrations have gone viral in the past. “My self-promotional work gives me a chance to experiment with my style and poke fun at various aspects of modern life and politics,” John has written on his Tumblr. Check out some of his work below and let us know – which of these wonderfully clever and sarcastic pictures do you find the most appealing or accurate?

1. Happiness Kit

    Is there anything extra you’d place in your happiness kit?

    2. Fast Food Again And Again

      A big mac takes us minutes to eat but what it leaves in our body may take years to get rid of…

      3. Everything Everywhere

      141d2ce5bbb208ddb31a060102b572f1_650x

        It’s super convenient to have everything in one smartphone. But once we lose it we may find it much harder to live. Do you remember any of your loved ones’ phone numbers?

        4. The True Meaning Of Christmas?

          Are we celebrating Christmas or consumerism?

          5. Packed Like Sardines

          a4ca46292d7f239c1bd044232bc2e823_650x

            Sardines are packed in cans to earn money while we pay to be packed like sardines.

            6. Under The Influence

            c753e8a6743aad8dd34c6209ca7a0306_650x

              Does alcohol really have such a huge effect on our lives?

              7. Rooted

              c5049ceb9a3da0333000c9a73c0e04c3_650x

                We know watching TV may not be really that funny but it seems that something makes us rooted to the seats. When was the last time you exercised?

                8. Food Inc.

                  dfce9f6bc7d63cddec9308661d622809_650x

                    Are you like anyone else in your workplace and can be disposed of anytime?

                    10. Always Outsourced

                    e23474e8861eeddd467d9d5154cae89a_650x

                      Outsourcing is so common now as it can save money. Even workers are detached and are like products which can be sold anytime.

                      11. Feed Your Facebook Ego

                      ea3e1d6097fc97d255a414b8c13f64ab_650x

                        Why do you really use Facebook? To communicate with friends? Or to maintain your self-image?

                        12. The Middle Men

                        f565db217282e865a9994d03225430bc_650x

                          Who’s to blame?

                          13. Income Turns Into Waste Immediately

                          houseshred

                            We always spend faster than we earn.

                            ladderspic

                              If there is no snake, is it still a must to climb the ladder?

                              15. Body And Mind Being Separate Entities

                              mancage

                                Physically we may be trapped but inside our mind we can fly freely. Can both of our bodies and minds be free?

                                16. High Pressure

                                nurse

                                  Are we put under too much pressure to meet the standards set by society?

                                  17. Apple

                                          Do you get on with your colleagues? Many employees no doubt have some sort of friction in the workplace.

                                          How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

                                          How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

                                          Think you have a boring life?

                                          The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

                                          Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

                                          1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

                                          What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

                                          Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

                                          2. Go Play with Kids

                                          Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

                                          They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

                                          3. Order a Hot Dog

                                          While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

                                          4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

                                          Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

                                          5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

                                          You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

                                          You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

                                          6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

                                          Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

                                          Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

                                          7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

                                          Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

                                          Advertising

                                          What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

                                          8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

                                          You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

                                          9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

                                          Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

                                          10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

                                          We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

                                          11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

                                          It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

                                          12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

                                          This will give you something to look forward to.

                                          Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

                                          13. People Watch

                                          Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

                                          People are infinitely interesting.

                                          14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

                                          Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

                                          15. Dance

                                          You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

                                          If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

                                          16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

                                          This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

                                          17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

                                          Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

                                          18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

                                          Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

                                          19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

                                          OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

                                          20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

                                          This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

                                          Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

                                          Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
