It's generally accepted that having a good sense of humor is a sign of both psychological health and character strength. But it can become hard to look for reasons to have fun when things are not going your way. When a tough situation arises, don't feel sorry for yourself or cry about it, instead, you can use humor to deal with it! Are you feeling a little skeptical that it can be achieved? Well, these people came face-to-face with an absolutely terrible situation and, rather than give that situation the satisfaction of having beat them, threw their heads back and laughed. Their positivity is infectious, and after scrolling your way through a few of these photos you'll be crying with laughter as well!
1. Couldn't Afford Those Extra Letters On His Truck
If you haven't figured out why this picture is so funny, then let us explain it. So it’s written "All I could Afford" in a witty way.
They could've added a letter F to the end of the sticker and it would've been spelled correctly. But then again, they couldn't even afford to buy letter F. Nevertheless, we love their honesty.
2. Imagine How The Passengers Must Be Feeling Seeing This Pilot
This hilarious prank pulled by a pilot kills us all, both from laughter and fear. Although you can become a pilot without having 20/20 vision, he took things a bit too far.
After flying those long hours and dealing with things like delays, ground traffic, and who knows what else, this pilot must be exhausted. That being said, he still couldn't resist pulling a little prank before his final flight home.
3. If You're Happy And You Know It Clap Your... Oh Wait...
This young man lost his right arm and broke his left hand so, his friend gifted him a new shirt. We can say with confidence that this is one pal he doesn't want to lose.
Losing a limb or any part of the body can be difficult and heartbreaking. But not for this guy. He's our hero.
4. That Moment When The World is Your Enemy
Can you think of one of the worst feelings ever? Someone breaking your heart or lying to you? Nah, it is the feeling of helplessness when there's no more toilet paper left. You feel alone and afraid, and there's nothing you can do.
Instead of screaming or stressing out, why not laugh about it. It's not like doing something else will change anything anyway.
5. This Librarian Was Noticing A Trend In Romance Novels
We all know that librarians are mostly calm and collected people who love reading books and making sure that no one makes noise. However, it seems like there is another side of the picture that not many people have discovered before.
The librarians couldn't help but notice that the covers of many of these books showed shirtless men. Rather than trying to pretend otherwise, they decided to make a joke about it.
6. The Final Joke On The Tomb Of Robert A. Clay Allison
This is a tombstone of Robert A. Clay Allison, a cattle rancher, cattle broker, and gunfighter of the American Old West. You may have not heard of him, but he was a notorious figure during his time. Once, he got into a gunfight with a constable after he refused to hand over his pistol before entering a local saloon.
Another time drunken Allison rode his horse through town almost naked, wearing only his gun belt. His grave marker at Pecos Park has an incorrect birth date of 1840. He was born on September 2, 1841.
7. Some Assembly Required...
It's well known around the world that Americans are the best when it comes to staying optimistic even while facing a terrible situation.
Although a hurricane destroyed his house, it sure didn't stop him from making a great joke in the hopes that he could at least cheer up a few of his neighbors.
8. Money Is Money
First thing's first; this guy has a terrific smile. However, based on his shirt, it is safe to assume that his financial situation doesn't look good.
Instead of crying about tough times, he decided to bring some humor into the situation. Respect!
9. Now That's Honest Advertisement
Imagine if brands started to advertise without making big claims. This gym didn't want to sugarcoat anything, even though they know that getting new customers to join a gym is not easy.
Therefore, the gym brought humor into the situation. We're tempted to call them to see if this sign managed to bring them a lot of business.
10. When Your Wife Runs Off With Your Girlfriend
The slogan "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" deliberately communicates freedom, but this isn't the case with this man.
Even if you think that his story isn't true, you have to love the humor. We would surely give him money for coming up with such a hilarious story.
11. At Least It Wasn't Frostbite
When this young man lost his leg, he didn't lose his fantastic sense of humor. All this photo needs is some fake blood. If you come to think about it, they actually put in a lot of effort into making this happen.
It always makes us feel glad to see someone who won't let anything destroy their sense of humor.
12. A Perfect Way To Come Out
Even though times have certainly improved, coming out of the closet can still be made difficult for many young people. As he was finishing up high school, Maxwell realized he had the perfect opportunity to show everyone who he truly is.
There's no doubt that with a joke like this, Maxwell became the most popular guy at school. We're sure this guy is going to have a great time in college!
13. Someone Was Left Unhappy With Her High School Experience
Senior quotes can be super hilarious. This girl wasn't an honor student, but one thing we know for sure is that she was an honest student.
We appreciate how gracefully she accepted being an idiot. She is as real as it gets. Why fake it when you can wear it like a crown, right? She is a queen in real life.
14. When You Try To Cheer Everyone Up And It Fails
You probably know about the popular meme: Italians don't die...they pasta away. As funny as that meme is, Angel Ambriz's comment in this particular situation could easily be seen as insensitive and tasteless.
To those who don't know him though (and for everyone with a sick sense of humor) this might at least bring them a chuckle in an otherwise dark story.
15. The Best Way To Make A New Friend
There's no such thing as the friend zone if you don't mind having women as friends. Even though many guys are disappointed when a woman they love tells them they just want to be friends, for this guy it's become his best way to make a new buddy.
Instead of getting upset though, this guy decided to look on the bright side of things. Every time a girl rejected him, he made a new friend!
16. Finally Revealing The Truth
Don't tell us she didn't become the prom queen that year. And if she didn't, there is something really wrong because she is so hilarious.
She actually knew how to deal with annoying people, yet she waited for years before finally giving them the answer. Maybe this will stop some people from asking stupid questions about how she dresses. Live and let live.
17. He Knew What He Wanted To Become
Why hide who you are? This man's parents said that he could be anything, and he really took it to heart. He is happy with it (not sure about the parents), which means we're happy for him.
After all, he didn't try to improve himself or feel bad thinking about how others view him; he simply accepted this fact with a big smile on his face.
18. Someone Wasn't Thinking When They Stocked The "Loss Of Loved One" Sections
It seems like someone did it on purpose or maybe the cards just got mixed up. Either way, we think it is dark and funny.
Given that it happened, why not say goodbye in the most fun and light way possible, right? What could go wrong...
19. The Natural Order Of Things
We're not surprised to see these three stores next to each other. The interesting part is that you can start from either end and work your way down.
As people struggle to deal with modern society's challenges, all kinds of unfortunate circumstances come our way at times. So, the least we can do is make a joke about it and try to make the best of it.
20. But She Couldn’t Take Away His Smile
There is something so sad and so funny about this guy's sign - we really hope he didn't lose absolutely everything in his divorce!
That being said he didn't let her take his smile, and he still manages to light up whichever corner he sits on.
21. Another Great Way To Come Out
Kayla knows how to steal the show, and we love it. Although we don't know Kayla, we're super proud of her. After all, what's not to love about her wit and humor?
Ah, only if we had more people like Kayla in this world. One wonders how many proposals she got after such a bold and witty statement.
22. No Crying On The Job
Monday sucks big time! Waking up on a Monday morning and going to work is tough, right? This sign is for people who're tired of working all those hours.
That being said it's obvious why employees might be so unhappy here with management who barely treats them like people. Our advice is to get out of that job ASAP and find a new one. No salary is worth our dignity as people.
23. When Income Is Much Smaller Than Bills
Whoever created this needs some sort of an award for perfectly depicting a real-life situation with just an image and a few words.
We have to say though that for many of us this is the first time we've been happy to see any "bills." If you know what we mean.
24. That's One Way To Get People To Remember You
If Cecil O'Dell Eads was good at pissing people off, then that's what he should be remembered for, right? It seems like he was pretty good at it.
We have to give him some credit, as he made sure people remembered him long after he was gone.
25. She Had Her Own Ideas For Her Senior Quote
When fries are your priority then you have what is called friorities. Miranda knows that fries are the most important thing in the world to her.
We doubt that fries are seriously the most important thing to her, it's more likely that she was going through some sort of rebellious streak. Either way, pretty funny!
26. An Interesting Way To Say Goodbye
Although we know that death is not the fun or easy way to deal with anyone you don't like, it seems like one husband felt like the luckiest man in the world once he passed on.
It is safe to say that losing his wife didn't break his heart. He came up with a hilarious way of accepting the fact that he won't be seeing her anymore gone.
27. When You Know How To Get The Ladies
Even though this man's wife recently passed away he decided that he's still going to do his best to try and make people laugh and smile.

28. The Moment You Realize It
This self-deprecating humor is the best because this person didn't cry about their situation.
They could've stayed home alone, all depressed and sad. Instead, they made it into something hilarious and so relatable.
29. Never Had A Bad Hair Day
This girl knows how to make the best of what she's got. With zero regrets or shame in covering her hair, she proudly announced that she's never had a single bad hair day.
Yeah, she never had a good hair day as well, but that is not the point. By the way, can bald people also make this claim as well?
30. Shamelessly Single
This toy isn't only for people who have no girlfriend or boyfriend, but also for people who don't get to see their friends very often (perfect for Covid!).
Who knows, maybe getting good at this game will actually impress someone and you'll have a date in no time!
31. No More Parking Problems
Most of us have so many problems, and finding a parking spot is one of them. When it comes to finding a parking spot, the struggle is real.
Although dealing with death is not easy, you can take some inspiration from the family who is happy about the one perk that comes with it (a parking spot).
32. Grown-Up Matthew Will Understand
When daddy said, "Honey, we need to record Ghostbusters II," she told him that it'll mean erasing Matthew's first birthday video. They gave it a thought for about 30 seconds and decided to record the movie.
After all, Matthew is all grown up. It was great while it lasted, but times change and that means our priorities change too.
33. No Reason To Hide It
Most of us don't express our hatred for anyone. For instance, if you don't like Mark at work or neighbor Emily, the chances are that you will avoid them or never express how much you hate them. However, it is not how this cool grandma rolls. She hates everyone. She is unapologetic about it and even has a smile on her face.
We think everyone should start wearing this shirt and support grandma with a chant, "HAPPY HATING!!!"
34. A Slide Ride You Won't Remember
This is the world's only slide that you will not remember at all. Do you know why? Well, as far as we know, dead people can't remember anything. Whoever designed this slide needs to be sued.
For now, it is best to make hilarious memes about it – as long as no one is harmed, of course.
35. Too Hot To Handle
This elderly lady strongly believes that age is just a number. She won't let anyone tell her that being old means looking less hot. According to our sources, she in fact is not 20 percent hotter than you, she's actually closer to 80 or 85 percent hotter.
Based on her confidence, it's clear that she already knows that too.
36. A Mix Of Feelings And Sensations
We admit it is super heartbreaking that a garlic bread factory burned down, but the headline surely stole the show.
One wonders why they didn't write, "Garlic bread fresh out of a burning factory smelled amazing."
37. Honestly, He's Not Wrong
If you have a crush on someone, you can use this cheesy line and might even take him or her on a date. Jireh is smart. He knows that life cannot exist without water.
So, it means that he's saying you have no choice but to like him. Maybe he wasn't such a popular kid, but he surely has a great sense of humor. We like 100 percent of him now.
38. Protesting The Issues That Matter
This man was Justin Bieber's FAN as a teenager and now he has become an AIR CONDITIONER. These people protested for something they truly believe in, but someone had other plans.
He just wanted to put a smile on the faces of some frustrated and angry people. Humor makes the world a better place.
39. An Exciting Career
Tell us what's not to love about this elderly man's shirt. It seems like this shirt was destined to stay somewhere in the wardrobe for years, but he had the guts to take it out.
This senior citizen would've remained upset and lonely, but he has managed to make us all laugh while bringing some excitement into his life as well.
40. Guide 101 On How To Deal With Haters

42. When You Realize The Movies Were Lying All Along
We agree with her that real-life high school is nothing like how movies show it. If you are a fan of musical romantic comedy, High School Musical, there is a chance you're going to be very disappointed when you finally make it to high school.
It seems like she doesn't have a lot of good memories from high school, but at least she learned from the overall experience.
43. Well, The Secret Is Out
Did he wear his wife’s shirt? We're not sure if he found it somewhere in the house and decided to wear it, but it is super hilarious.
It just shows that humor doesn't see age or any boundaries. Just Imagine this guy attending his grandson's graduation ceremony – he would instantly become a superstar.
44. When Your Priest Has A Great Sense Of Humor
Apparently, people don't come to Church as much as before. The Church understands that people prefer staying at home, especially during this pandemic.
Instead of getting hurt or making a fuss, they used humor to make their point. And yes, the Church pretty much nailed it.
45. It Doesn't Matter What Religion She Is, She's Still A Scary Wife
Unfortunately, the world we live in has no shortages of stereotypes. Fortunately, there is no shortage of people with an incredible sense of humor.
First, this person tried to beat stereotypes about Muslims by expressing what he's truly afraid of. We have a feeling this is going to connect with a lot of married men out there.
46. Not Losing Hope
These homeowners are showing us how to remain hopeful even in tough times. No matter what happens, don't despair.
Instead of getting disappointed, they simply awarded their destroyed yard as the 'yard of the month.' Respect!
47. And A Box of Chocolates
These are the people who find happiness in almost anything. Although this man's best friend took away his wife, we love how he still has a sense of humor.
He knows how to make the best out of everything. We hope this man finds his way to get out of the situation.
48. When You Have A Morbid Sense of Humor
Family photos can be cute and embarrassing. Sometimes, they can seem like a mild nuisance because you try to get everyone together. Although this family has a morbid sense of humor, the best thing is that everyone is laughing.
Even grandpa is enjoying it because he knows there is nothing anyone can do to beat death. If you can't beat it, you might as well accept and enjoy it.
49. When You Have TWO Webbed Toes But ONE Great Sense of Humor
When this lady got a great opper-TOE-nity to get a tattoo, she didn't waste it. This is one of the best tattoos we've ever seen.
Born with two webbed toes, she knew how to make the best of the situation. And she even got a pretty pedicure on her feet.
50. Using Prosthetic Leg Like a Boss
This guy lost his legs in Afghanistan, but that didn't kill his amazing sense of humor. Although he lost his legs, he has something that we don’t: a cup holder.
He is winning hard at life and showing us how to live life even when things don't go our way.
