Hilarious Things Spotted At Target Will Make Your Day

Unlike its competitor, Wal-Mart, Target has a reputation for being a somewhat prestige shopping facility. People are willing to pay more just to avoid going to Wal-Mart, even though they practically sell the same items. The odd thing is that many times, they’re located right next to each other. One other huge difference between the two is that you don’t really expect to see wild things at Target. Now that you’re here, we’re going to show you that isn’t true.

Hunger Games Or What?

Either this is advanced marketing for when Hunger Games was in theaters or this Target store doesn’t get it. Either way, this is quite hilarious. Imagine the looks mothers had on their faces after seeing this mistake.

Their children have no business bringing knives to school. How this catastrophy stayed around long enough for someone to take a picture is beyond us. Target is usually quick at fixing things like this. We guess it was an off day.

Come Get Your Drinks, Kids!

Okay, Target took it too far with this one. No wonder we’re starting to see more and more children roaming the aisles of Target unsupervised. They’re sneaking out from under their parent’s supervision to grab some of those wild “kids drinks.” It all makes sense.

Whenever you see kids cutting a rug, they’ve probably been to Target and had too much of the children’s beverages. This world changes every day, and this is a new height we’ve yet to see.

Skeleton Kid

Okay, seeing this at any store would be hilarious. A Skeleton in place of a real human is one of the funniest jokes there are. For one, it catches you off guard. Secondly, who would think of something so grim?

The grimness of it all is what gets you. You know it’s not a real collection of bones, but you can’t help but feel a little spooked before you begin to burst into laughter.

What’s Going On Here??

Why would one have fun at night when he or she has bananas? What is Target trying to imply here? Was this an accident or was it purposely done? Is your idea of fun eating healthy nutrients?

If that’s the case, buy the bananas by the pound! You’ll be having fun all night chowing on this gift from nature. We’re not sure what they’re pointing at here, placing the bananas under this display. We’ll leave that for you to decide.

Googly Baby Eyes

Yes, the googly eye treatment. A classic joke indeed, but one that never seems to fall flat. The package of Pampers with the picture of a precious baby needed some zest added to it, and this was the perfect solution.

For a child or someone who doesn’t know the concept of googly eyes, this could come off as frightening. That’s precisely why this is so funny because you never know who is going to get a good look at it.

Greetings From Target

Well, it looks like businesses are taking things to the next level. Never have we ever seen an establishment that greets you from their LED sign on their building, while seamlessly incorporating the company name.

Not only is this an act of kindness, but it’s genuinely innovative. More places should get into this. They might be able to attract more customers, you never know. Wouldn’t you want to go into this store thanks to the warm welcome?

Missed The Mark

Well, what do we have here? A failed attempt at “car darts” or a high-speed chase went wrong? We’re going with the latter, but we aren’t eliminating the possibility of “car darts” because the Target sign looks perfect for that.

As the meme says, “so close!” We hope everyone made it out safe, but we also expect the next person that attempts this actually gets to the Target. No pun intended.

Do You Get It?

Don’t you hate it when you’re positive you inserted the correct website URL, and the browser doesn’t load it? Sometimes the page might be too busy, and you’ll get a message to try again. Other times you’ll see “404 Oops! Page not found.”

It looks like there is a bright employee. With nothing to show in this endcap, it looks like a case of the 404’s. Was the price really that much or was someone just having fun?

Run Croc, Run!

There’s research that implies that crocodiles used to walk like humans. 231 million years ago lived a land-dwelling croc that walked on its hind legs and was one of the top predators. They called it the Carolina butcher.

Folks, it looks like that bad boy is back, and it lives at Target! We’re willing to bet people would still come shop even if it meant risking your life to a ruthless lizard ready to mangle you.

Spongebob Is A Monster

Probably the creepiest thing you’ll spot at Target, but since it’s Spongebob, it counts as funny too. No one is going to think these inanimate objects got up and walked there themselves.

That’s where the humor is. Little kids might find this especially joyous, but adults who have seen the movie where this originates from could be a little disturbed. They don’t want their children having nightmares, or maybe even themselves. What do you think, too scary or perfectly funny?

This Is Interesting To Say The Least

How you go from solving acid reflux to preventing childbirth is entirely mind-blowing. Those two things aren’t even in the same universe. Something seems off here, but we aren’t in charge, we’re just commentating.

Hopefully, what’s really going on here is the first steps of rearranging products. That’s the only way to justify this odd sighting. That’s why someone took a picture of it because they thought it was as hilarious as we believe it is.

Devilish Target

Whoever spotted this must’ve had a bad day. You go to target to spend more money than you initially wanted, not to see signs from satan. Clearly, this is a joke played by another customer, but it’s still spooky.

No one wants to come across anything like this, especially if they’re superstitious. Do you think a parent eventually changed it or did an employee get wise and have to come set things straight? What would you feel if you saw this?

Target Has Jokes

We’re not opposed to believing that this is really how Target placed this. Of course, a funny customer could have walked by and switched things up, but think about it. Reading one of those books fills your mind with “interesting” thoughts.

What better way to cleanse that than by getting a little spiritual? This is one of the more clever jokes that we’ve seen in a while besides that “404” one we put a few slides earlier.

Wow, What Is This?

Look very closely at this image. Before we reveal the issue, we want you to try and identify what’s going on here. What’s with the arrows and what are they pointing at? Give up yet, or have you figured it out?

Okay, we’ll spill the beans. This guy has three arms! Since when did Target start doing promotions with aliens? Did they raid Area 51 too? He has one arm around the women, another at his side, and the last around the young girl.

That’s Fair

There’s nothing like drinking some enhanced water. It gets you feeling just right for the night, or the day. Well, if it’s this kind then we’re guessing you’re going to have some when the sun falls.

We’ve personally never had any enhanced water of this caliber, but we’re willing to test it out! It even comes inside some neat packaging. We wonder if downing three cans will leave us feeling hydrated for the next 24 hours.

At Least They Tried To Help

We’re sure the Ninja Turtles don’t know anything about the force or outer space. They probably felt inclined to help when they saw how much trouble the stormtroopers were causing, but didn’t know what they were getting themselves into.

The troopers have them held up with their hands high. It’s pretty much over for Leonardo and the gang. Maybe Master Splinter will show face and get them out of this pickle because if not, his pupils are toast.

Smart Move, Target

In the current state of society, it’s like walking on eggshells trying to please anyone. You can’t say ‘Merry Christmas’ without offending folks, and the same goes for ‘Merry X-Mas’. What do people want? It looks like Target figured it out.

Why not just celebrate whatever on Earth doesn’t upset you? Grab one of these ornaments and hang it up during the holidays, so your guests don’t chew you out. We’d order a couple so you can give some as gifts.

Scan Her Up

Imagine people selling their children like this. Just bring them into Target and find out what their label is and boom! Now, this adorable little girl can hit the market for another family to hug and love.

Seriously, how did they make this happen? Is this some type of secret hack that only the savvy shoppers know how to accomplish? We’d like to know how to do this because it’s funny and sweet at the same time.

We’re Sorry, SJP

Well, that escalated quickly. We didn’t know Target felt so strongly about the gorgeous Sara Jessica Parker. Do people really think she looks like a Palamino? We sure hope not, but we still find this amusing.

SJP has a sense of humor and would probably laugh at this too. If anyone reading this knows the actress, please send her this and find out what she thinks. If she ends up disliking you, we just kindly ask you don’t blame us.

Amazing Sale, Target!

You can always depend on Target to serve up some the best deals out there. They offer gift cards when you purchase certain items, and they do a ton of buy-one-get-one deals.

Those offers don’t compare to this one. They’re willing to give you up to 0% off on Mission yellow thin corn tortillas. The game is now changed. Who else do you know that’s doing that? Not even Wal-Mart can give that type of satisfaction.
