Sure, it's something a twisted mastermind would come up with, but it's also the reason why those types of amoral gags are the ones that shake us to our very core.

For my family, it was getting me to watch or see anything that had Freddy Krueger in it. Whether it was a clip from a movie, a film poster, or even a trick-or-treater dressed up like the knife-handed, burnt-face madman, it always got me spooked.

I hated his face, his knife gloves, his sweater, his deep, gravelly voice. I hated that he killed you while you asleep. I hated that he was a sadist. I hated hated hated everything about him. And I also also that my brother and dad would constantly trick me into thinking I was about to watch my favorite cartoon when BAM, A Nightmare on Elm Street was spliced into the video or playing on another channel, that they would turn to. Thanks a lot for the scares, guys.

@PaxPhotography had the misfortune of ramming his car into the glorified, giant rats of the woods, twice in a single month. That's right  - he hit two deer in about four weeks.

Such a terrible stroke of luck would probably leave someone with not just a ton of insurance paperwork to fill out and a healthy hatred of these antlered pests, but some PTSD associated with the accidents as well.

He finally listened to her, however, and stopped posting faces in her rear-view camera.
