This picture probably got you weirded out even if you don’t have trypophobia, but what if we told you it was nothing worse than a raw octopus burger? So what? That’s not any better? Yeah, we can understand that.
Take food that plenty of people are not willing to eat, make it look honestly not all that good, and add some little openings, and you have a dish that we bet isn’t exactly in great demand. The bun looks great, the sauce is tasty, but there’s just too much going on, and who wants to eat that much octopus, anyway?
Headed to its Final Destination
Driving behind a truck that's loaded with construction equipment is never a great time. How secure are those straps? And yet, that kind of accident is incredibly rare for a lot of reasons. Still, all those pipes and tubes are a trypophobe's worst nightmare—layers upon layers of tubes that could contain anything.
Many sufferers aren't set off by something manufactured like these things – it has to be natural. Organic. Mold, eggs, and nests are one thing, but most people worldwide would find nothing creep-worthy about this picture, except for maybe the purple tubes. Purple is the evilest of colors.
I Don't Feel Very Snug, Personally
While you might get the heebie-jeebies looking at this pic, thinking it's tons and tons of maggots (and sorry if you weren't thinking that), this picture is just that of a rug where somebody was staying.
While there aren't that many holes in sight, we don't doubt that people with trypophobia would still find this rug no fun whatsoever. It could also be lots and lots of tiny eyeballs or even little fungi. Zoom in, and it gets worse. Zoom in closer, and it gets better since you can see the fabric and remember that "oh yeah, it's a rug."
Some people like mushrooms. Whether they're just fans of fungi or they like the taste, they're out there. Yes, they're weird, but we're all a little odd. But have you ever taken a look at the underside of a big mushroom, really gotten in there, and seen what was going on?
If not, here's your chance. Look at those cool waves, the colors, the growth, the many, many tiny openings. It turns out there's a reason that most people don't choose to look at the underside of big mushrooms. Maybe your bottom doesn't look any better. Ever thought about that?
When you're gussying up your place of business or home, you want something unique. Something memorable. Something that nobody else has. Decorating a wall lamp with a ton of seashells is, in theory, a great idea. In practice, however, it can turn out like this odd piece of decoration.
Don't go so hard on all the little shells next time. The big ones are mostly fine, but all those little guys will draw the eye. Well, the lamp is undoubtedly memorable. For the wrong reason, of course. Like "No, let's not stay there again. They have that weird shell lamp."
