A Lemon That Is ‘Out of World’
This lemon looks like a mutated version of a regular lemon. It resembles a yellow octopus in the sense that it has multiple tentacles like growth on its outer skin. Each tentacle contains a stinger like growth that reminds us of a scorpion’s stinger in a strange way.
Perhaps, we are ‘seeing’ too much. On a philosophical note, it looks like a lemon that has been given a lemon by life.
While we are all shape inclusive and diverse (Hello, body positivity!); we have rarely come across a coin that is (holding breathe for a second) – square. Somehow, we have also come to associate coins with a nice round shiny shape!
Till we came across this Surinam coin! Before you chide us, we will do that by ourselves, and make a pledge not to judge a coin (ever again) for its shape.
Honey, I Expanded the Mushroom
Is this a mushroom from the book Alice in Wonderland or from the backyard of an overenthusiastic gardener? Just look at its impressive size. This is a fit contender for the state level (even national) vegetable show.
And imagine how many people it would feed, that is, if it is edible and non-poisonous. Our mind is already buzzing with mushroom related recipes and such. We would name it Magic Mushroom or Strange Mushroom.
Best of Both Worlds
It’s a sink, stove, and mini-fridge – all rolled into one. The best part is that all these appliances are in harmony. A genius invention, we say! Think of how much space it can save in the kitchen. It’s an ideal invention for those as well who are considered ‘serious kitchen hazard’ by their folks.
If your dish ever gets burnt or catches fire, the sink (literally at an arm’s length) can extinguish those flames from engulfing your kitchen to cinders.
Bananas Inside a Banana
Never judge a book by its cover and never judge a banana by its outer peel – as both can surprise you. While we knew the former phrase; we learnt the latter part of it recently. This banana seems to be blessed by Pomona – the Greek Goddess of fruits and orchards.
It contains four bananas inside a single banana making it a quadruple banana. This can easily feed four people at a time or can be a wholesome meal throughout the day. Strange, right?
The Sausage Tube
This coiled sausage tube has god knows how many kilograms of sausage. Make a guess if you can! However, no prize money for that! A restaurant in Italy has a salami hose or salami spool.
And we bet it is what the place must be known for. If you have a voracious appetite for salami, we feel that this is the place to be as they will never run out of salami, well anytime soon. You have our word.
Wrinkly Winnie the Pooh
These old, battered, wrinkly sets of toys are Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet. Though they look aged, strange and nothing like what you have imagined them to be. In fact, these are the OG Winnie The Pooh toys.
The Pooh and his friends were given as gifts by author A.A Milne to his son Christopher Robin Milne (he appears in the comics too). Christopher later gave them to publisher E.P. Dutton, who donated them to NY Public Library.
Same, Same but Different
All turtle in this image may look the same but they are vastly different. All these reptiles are turtles – and this is the only similarity they share. These turtles are different from each other in terms of sizes, shapes, and most importantly color.
This image, in fact, is a singular image of the varieties of turtles one can come across in the natural world. Also, doesn’t it look like a party hosted by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
Australian Echidnas’ Mojo
Swag is not restricted to human beings, you know. Even certain species of animal kingdom exhibit envy worthy swag. Take Australian Echidnas for example. Named after the mother of monsters, they are commonly referred to as ecosystem engineers.
When scared, these Echidnas curl up like a ball. They also don’t care about wildlife fires. They just dig deep into the ground and go to sleep peacefully! Take that, forest fire!
Trick or Treat?
Want to make summer treats that will leave everyone screaming for more (and some more)? This dessert mold comes with a spooky surprise and features a black spider at the centre of each stick.
The spider however looks menacingly real and feels as if someone has frozen a live spider. Just don’t offer this to someone who is genuinely scared of spiders. It won’t be a ‘cool’ thing to do.
Remember the egg that beat Kylie Jenner and became the most liked image on Instagram. This seems an extension of that. Eggs have upped their game and how! This cloud above Reykjavik, Iceland looks like a fluffy egg floating gleefully in the sky.
Too bad, you can’t eat it! On another note, the clouds are perhaps having an Easter egg moment and indicating something large. We predict it to be climate change.
Pet Leash for a Rainy Day
It’s raining cats and dogs and you still want to take your pooch out for their daily walk. But, you also don’t want them to get drenched in rain. What to do? Keep on reading, we say!
We came across this leash with an inbuilt umbrella so that your pooch can enjoy the rains on their walk without getting wet. To control them from getting excited, the umbrella comes with a leash that allows you to tighten your grip to control your doggo’s movement.
Santa Is Real?
There are countless cool hacks and ways to take a photography shot. This being one of the many! This picture which resembles a Santa (wearing black sunnies) was taken after popping a balloon that was filled with smoke.
The smoke gives an effect of Santa’s free flowing silver white beard. Christmas cool, we declare! Also, if you know any such cool and strange photography hack, do share it with us in the comments below!

Rainbow Tree Opal
You will love this if crystals and natural gemstones are your thing. What you see in the image is Rainbow Tree, a boulder opal from Queensland, Australia. It is truly surprising to find these natural crystal pieces created from the earth.
What’s more surprising is the fact that some of these opals date back to thousands of years. Nature, we feel, is the biggest artist of time! Don’t you agree?
Salvador Dali’s (Uncanny) Pet
Surrealist painter Salvador Dali’s choice of pets was a tad uncanny. While he strongly believed that he was a reincarnation of his brother; he was the owner of some exotic pets ranging from an ocelot to anteater.
In 1969, he was photographed on the Paris Metro while taking his anteater for an evening walk. His act drew a horde of visitors who can be seen looking at the pair with a mix of bewilderment and curiosity.
The Compassion of Soldiers
Humans and animals have a love-hate relationship. And, it’s largely due to humans who encroach upon their space either to drive them away or use them for their selfish reasons. But, there are a few compassionate souls who treat wild animals as they would treat a fellow human.
In this image taken in the 1950s, Russian soldiers are seen feeding polar bears during a military expedition. With the temperature dropping to minus, the soldiers felt that they should offer something to these big bears so that they do not starve.
Bee Beard is essentially an act of wearing hundreds and thousands of bees on your face. A lot of people apply honey in order to attract bees to sit on their skin. This thing, however, should be done under able guidance because one get can horribly stung by the swarm of angry bees if things go south.
While normally, people do it just on the face; this person went many steps ahead and did a full body bee beard – covering themselves with bees from head to toe.
Sustainable fashion is very in and it should be considering the wastage our clothes and fashion as an industry generates on an annual basis. If your New Year resolution is to go green, embracing the idea that promotes going green is a great idea. Consider expanding it to going green with these slippers that mimic the texture of grass.
While they seem to relax your soles through their gentle caress; they kind of spread the message of you being an eco-conscious too.
For the Love of Shrimps
Take your love for shrimps to the next level by adding it to home furnishings. Yes, you read that right. This strange shrimp pillow in coral looks a bit realistic and can be used as a neck pillow, cushion, a soft toy – or a bit of all these things we just mentioned.
We won’t blame you if you feel hungry while resting on it. Maybe it was designed that way – to make you feel hungry!
The Twinkling Beach
This image looks as if someone has illuminated the water using strange and shiny blue fairy lights. Except it is not! Nor is it some photo manipulation. You would be surprised to know this illumination is due to naturally occurring phenomena called bio-luminescence.
Bioluminescence is the result of a chemical process that takes place inside a living organism such as glow worm and deep sea fish. This phenomenon however isn’t restricted to a particular part; and happens worldwide.
A New Way to Sip
Want to control your sugar intake without cutting down on your daily quota of sugary based drinks? A humorous way to do that is to confuse your brain. And it can be done with a roller coaster straw kit.
This super straw promises all the thrills and hopefully zero spills as you savor the drink of your choice through it. It also lets one create a strange roller coaster through a set of connectors and straws.
What are the various shades of water you have come across during your trip to beaches? While the myriad shades of blue – cerulean, cyan, baby blue and likes are common; it’s uncommon to see a lake containing pink water.
The Pink Lake in Australia is pink in color due to the presence of algae Dunaliella Salina. The algae when exposed to sunlight produces a vast amount of beta carotene making the water of the lake look pink.
Hold My Fries
This product might seem like heaven sent for those wanting to eat fries in their car especially while driving. It not only secures fries in a place; but also lets you enjoy the fries without having to worry about dirtying the upholstery of your car.
The container holds the fries in its tray that is held by a small glass shaped bottom. Inventions like this make our life easy. We are tempted to kiss the hand of its inventor!
The Rainbow River
Few points ago, we familiarized you with the Pink Lake Australia and the phenomenon called bioluminescence. Now, we want you to be aware of the strange river of five colors.
The Cano Cristales in Sierra de la Macarena is like any normal river for most of the year except it turns to a medley of five beautiful colors for a brief time. When it does, it seems as if somebody emptied tubes of colors in its waters. The river’s color is imparted by an aquatic species of plant called Macarenia Clavegia.
How to make your kitchen look like a crime scene? The answer to this lies in this spoon that comes with a blob of splattering red. Before you freak out, let us tell you that the red blob is actually a spoon rest.
But, it does a job more than that. It not only adds a color to your kitchen; and enlivens your kitchen space (Oh, the irony!) – it also tries to make those long cooking sessions a little more bearable.

Think only you are good at hiding secrets! PS: We know what you did last summer, FYI. Meet this sparkly sequined pillow that is as good as you are when it comes to hiding things.
While it might seem like an endless line of sequins on a first glance, it reveals to a beautiful wedding portrait (surprise!) once you run your hands over it. Also, a great stress buster if you can think of patterns you can make by running your hands over it.

Till few years ago, inflatable trays were probably unheard of. Fancying a brekkie or brunch inside the pool without stepping outside the water can now be sorted! Inflatable trays let you enjoy a scrumptious serving of breakfast as you remain inside the water, soaking in its goodness.
It is also used by many hospitality chains worldwide to serve floating breakfasts. These light weight trays come in a host of colors, shapes and eye-catching designs to make your breakfast in the pool a fun and leisurely experience.
The 2D Building
Certain things can look different from certain angles – and that becomes their USP. They can even trick your mind into believing into phenomena that is non-existent in terms of the image in question. For example, this particular building looks two dimensional and strange when viewed from a specific angle.
The reason it appears two-dimensional is because the building is shaped like a rhombus. Imagine what it must look like from an airplane.
