Whatever happened in the moments after this photo was either extremely cute or extremely terrifying. It could either way when you mix monkeys and food.

Water You Doing?

Water You Doing?

Kim Kardashian isn't known for particularly clever photoshoots on her Instagram page, but as one of the most recent Sports Illustrated cover models, we expect a little bit more thought in her seaside photos than... whatever this is. She's literally in one of the most beautiful vacation spots in the world and decides that it's the perfect time to empty out her water bottle. 

We assume her pouring out perfectly good (and definitely Brita filtered) water into the ocean is supposed to be symbolic somehow, or even "sexy," but it's a complete fail. She's not even pouring the water on her hair to make it look like she's showering. We can only imagine the thoughts running through her head before taking this hilarious snap. Hello, dehydration!

Sprite... Shower?

Sprite... Shower?

We thought that the point of beachfront showers was to clean off all of the sand, sunscreen, and salty ocean water, not to get splashed in a fine coat of sugary soda! Okay, yes, we know that these Sprite-themed showers (probably) aren't soda fountains, but I wouldn't trust it for a post-beach shower. 

Don't get us wrong, it's a pretty clever idea to construct a beach shower in the shape of a soda fountain. But we have a few problems. Primarily, it's just a giant ad in the middle of the beach, and we already have enough advertising bombarding us online. At least it's funny to look at!

Kourtney Conehead

Kourtney Conehead

Soak in the glory that is Kourtney Kardashian (yes, it's really her) wearing a trendy beach hat that doesn't quite fit the way she intended. Unless the uber-rich socialite was trying to cosplay as a bikini-clad Conehead, we don't understand how she didn't catch the slip-up.

What makes this snap even funnier is two-fold. First, Kourtney thought it was a good enough snap to upload directly to her Instagram feed. Second, this photo was the first featured photo in a carousel of other perfectly acceptable pool snaps. Maybe the eldest Kardashian really is a huge fan of Conehead!

Monkey Around

Monkey Around

Who needs a boyfriend to take pictures with when you have a perfectly good monkey to take his place? This girl certainly knows which option is better in this situation. She definitely made the right decision! Oh no... He's flipping off the camera... Maybe he wasn't the better choice after all?

All jokes aside, where do people find wild animals like chimps roaming around the beach? Hopefully, there's no zoo nearby that had a breakout of monkeys taking down the town! This guy looks nice, though. At least, he's nice enough to pose for a groovy beach pic!

Cowabunga — Holy Edition!

Cowabunga — Holy Edition!

This girl might look like a nun, but we think she misunderstood the assignment. The ocean doesn't count as holy water, right? We doubt any Catholic priest is around to bless the beachgoers yet some might still feel blessed to see a surfing nun. What are the odds? 

More likely than not, she's surfing for some kind of Halloween event or costume party, but we'd rather believe that she's surfing for the Holy Spirit. Hey, when you have the Lord on your side, you can do anything! This includes catching monster waves in Hawaii.

Eyes Up Here, Not On the Unicorn!

Eyes Up Here, Not On the Unicorn!

Rita Ora, a British singer who first rose to fame in early 2012, is showstopping in any bikini she wears. The artist, who is routinely featured on the covers of famous magazines, definitely understands the demands of the covergirl life. However, this snap is less "covergirl" and more "fail" material. 

Sure, she's showstopping! But what on earth is going on behind her? One girl is struggling to stay afloat on a blow-up unicorn tube. Another girl could be drowning — we can't be sure. And way in the background are hillbillies on a giant boat that are most definitely too close to the girls nearly drowning in their tubes.

"Who Forgot the Sunscreen?!"

"Who Forgot the Sunscreen?!"

These kinds of beach fails could be easily prevented if people had any sliver of motivation to reapply their sunscreen! UV rays are especially damaging during the summertime, and you can't go wrong with added protection from the sun during the spring either — especially at the beach. 

Don't be these guys! We can't deny that the results are hilarious, but we honestly feel bad for them. That's gotta hurt! And what's going on in the first photo? We imagine this guy fell asleep facedown on the sand and his wife wrote the hilarious message on his back. He'll never forget to apply again!

Laugh at Doja Cat

Laugh at Doja Cat

Doja Cat — a sensational singer and performer who exploded in popularity during 2020 — doesn't take herself too seriously. Can you tell? Her Instagram feed is catered to her target audience, providing the perfect balance of styled red-carpet snaps and grainy, context-free selfies. 

Remember Kourtney Conehead? Doja Cat must have been inspired by the eldest Kardashian's trendy sunhat snap. Just look at the height of that thing! It defies gravity! We're sure it must be a photoshopped photo, but we like to believe that it's all-natural just like her.

Phoenix Shmoenix

Phoenix Shmoenix

Ben Affleck’s giant back tattoo has gotten a lot of attention from the media over the last few years. While any publicity is considered "good" publicity, we doubt that anyone wants this kind of attention... Affleck originally claimed the tattoo was only temporary for a movie he was starring in. But the tat never appeared in the film and has been spotted on Affleck since. 

So, we come to the conclusion that it is in fact, real. Affleck told several sources including Ellen DeGeneres that he loves his Giant Phoenix back tattoo. We can't knock someone for liking what they like, but if we're being objective here, the design placement is super awkward. The linework isn't overly terrible, and the colors have the potential to save the design, but why did it have to be so big?!

Those family beach photos just never turn out like you want them to. They probably should have done a test jump before turning the camera on.
