When you hear the word vandalism, the first thing that comes to mind is that it’s a crime. But what if we told you that some forms of vandalism are downright genius works of art? We’re not talking about the usual juvenile disobedience often seen in bad neighborhoods. We’re talking about vandalism at its finest, as in, they’re so good they belong in a museum! So here are a couple of illegal pranks that are way too funny to ever be considered illegal. We just love it when people find humorous and creative ways of expressing themselves. If only we could see more of this stuff on the internet, it’d be great!
#1. Someone call the cops, there’s a drain pipe bursting with all the colors of the rainbow!
Now who would take so much time to knit such a colorful leak. It’s like Care-A-Lot started hemorrhaging out of this pipe! We’re surprised no one took all that yarn and turned it into a sweater.
#2. If vandalism were a job, then this genius would have spent plenty of bill-able hours on this.
It’s like being a kid again. No matter how many times you tell someone not to do something, it just tempts you to do it even more. We’re sure that the Bills on this sign would totally agree.
#3. Don’t salt a graffiti artist’s game, cause they’re too slick for that.
So what happened when this business ad was posted on this wall? The vandal got creative and started erasing the good-doer’s phone number. Ha! Good luck calling now!
#4. This is what happens when teenagers or Forrest Gump fans get too bored.
This may be the best one yet, and it’s such a creative way to stave off the boredom! But it doesn’t look like an act of vandalism, so really, the only outcome here is laughter.
#5. If you can’t knit a rainbow, then paint one on a barrier bar.
Every city should consider hiring artists who can go around making the world a little more interesting to live in. This is so simple, and yet so cool at the same time.
#6. Don’t call yourself environmentally friendly when there are holes in your story.
It doesn’t take an artist to spell the truth out. You just need a really good marker to point out the hidden oxymoron in a company’s mission statement.
#7. This tiny forest may be one of the silliest things you’ll ever run into.
But sometimes you need someone to point out the obvious, especially when you’re one of those people that are in too much of a rush to ever look down.
#8. Sounds like something you’d expect to hear from SpongeBob.
But of course, it sure wouldn’t work quite as well, if this were in the UK where everyone calls their elevators lifts. But it’s clever anyway and aawwweessoommee!
#9. Street art in Redwood City, California has just gotten a little bit creepier.
It looks your shadow isn’t the only thing you have to worry about. We’re willing to bet that FedEx is behind this art to scare people into using them instead of regular mail.
#10. You’re never too old to pick up a new hobby like skateboarding.
Cowabunga, dude! This one’s slick! We sure wouldn’t mind seeing a statue rolling down the street. Now, which one of those three geniuses in the background did this so we can thank them?
#11. Whoever did this should get a freaking prize and some cash.
Turning this bush into Marge is awesome! But poor Marge’s hair doesn’t appear to be its usual coral blue #5 color. We’ll almost feel bad when someone shops that foliage down.
#12. This is why moisturizers are so important when you’re a statue.
We simply can’t stop giggling. Hopefully those hairy pits aren’t made out of stone. If they are, we’d love to know what kind of razor they own.
#13. What do you do when you find an old abandoned van on the side of the road?
You get artistic and turn it into the Scooby gang’s Mystery Machine van. It looks so good that it’ll have you getting out of your car and shouting Scooby Dooby Doo!
#14. How about turning a broken corner into a skyscraper?
We’d never have thought of this. But in this rough neighborhood, someone got creative and added a mini-Kong grabbing on to this corner, which now subs for a skyscraper. In honor of Harambe? Maybe?
#15. Next time you’re at a store, prepare to get a cup of reality check.
We could almost imagine Vanna White walking past these mugs and modeling them with her pretty hands and swerving arms. This vandal deserves a toast.
#16. Near the train station in Dresden, something X-File-ish is happening.
It looks like a UFO is using its spaceship to levitate a cow onboard using some kind of tractor beam. It sure beats that hunk of metal on the left-hand side of the picture.
#17. When you’re ready to donate to charity, make sure you give away all your trash.
At least those two things have one thing in common, once you’ve paid money for them, you wish you’d never gotten them, and can’t wait to get rid of them.
#18. Confucius says you should probably do this every day to live a balanced life.
Just because you own a sword, it doesn’t mean you have to swing it all the time. Thankfully, you can yo-yo your way towards a more peaceful existence.
#19. There’s something not quite right here, like that tree with the big scary eyes.
This would definitely give anyone a heart attack while they’re jogging first thing in the morning. But at night, it would be even spookier. Quick, someone call an exorcist.
#20. In case you’re surrounded by fire, here’s a great life hack.
Don’t bother with the stairs either. Just find yourself a bucket of water and put out the fire. You’ll save yourself and others, unless it’s an electrical fire. Then you’re on your own.
#21. Did someone put a bunch of gnomes in this tree, or what?
Maybe these gnomes were just living there trying to find some peace in their existence, when some gigantic human decided to walk right over and take a photo.
#22. Some acts of vandalism are actually an improvement on some billboards.
Just ask Ryan Murphy, but not the one that created “American Horror Story”. With a bit of a makeover and some facial hair, the vandals turned Ryan into one cool dude!
#23. Some people are never happy with what they’re given.
But most complaints end up being thrown away, so this vandal decided to cement his complaint. Now that’s a permanent reminder that we need a little more green in our lives.
#24. Could someone please cue the Imperial March for Star Wars?
It seems like Darth Vader is alive and kicking, but the afterlife is not exactly how he probably pictured it. Serves him right for being such a villain.
#25. Who stripped all those wires from the electric control panel?
Until this vandal came along, we didn’t have a clue. Now it would almost seem like a real shame if the city decided to fix this. It would defeat the purpose of this crook in the red cap.
