Ten Photos: What Were They Thinking?

Andrea Mowery

Do you ever wonder what the people in photos are thinking when the camera flash goes off?  I do.

Obviously this woman face-planted from the sheer weight of stuff in her purse.

 I’ll bet she’s rethinking the ten pounds of jewelry, batteries and hand sanitizer she keeps in there.

 An introvert’s dream party: everybody’s dancing to their own music,

AND they’re not required to talk to each other.

Each one of these people is thinking that he/she is the best dancer EVER.

And each one is thinking that everybody else is a total dancing failure.


 Tacos.  Salad.  Brains. Bea Arthur.

Yep.  Pretty much what I’m thinking ALL THE TIME.

 “I should have been an accountant.”


Am I the only person who thinks about Snoop Dogg’s Gin and Juice when I see this graphic?

“Laid back (With my mind on my money, and my money on my mind)”

. . .

So it’s just me, then.


 His aggressive “So what do YOU think of light bulbs?” stance makes me a little nervous.

Is he thinking of smashing it in my face if I give a wrong answer?

 Middle guy: “It never fails. Every time I go out with these jerks,

they start doing shots and I end up cleaning puke off my horse.”

These guys are blissfully unaware that the woman in the doorway just added a little bit of rat poison

to the soup she has prepared for their lunch.

 “God, my wife is ugly”


Dear, what are you thinking about?

Him: “She is my soul mate, the love of my life. I cannot wait until she is my wife”

Her: “I should not have left Javier.  Biggest mistake EVER”
