One of the more recent popular trends is to take pictures of awkward poses with statues. There have been some very creative ideas come out of these photographs and the concept has sparked something of a movement across the world. With all kinds of different statues and monuments, ranging from historical figures, religious icons, artistic interpretations of people, animals and more, the possibilities are endless. It also gives people the chance to be a little out of the box and extra creative when designing the perfect pose!
With these interesting and clearly unique pictures though, there are some that make our eyes widen a bit more! Many are downright perverse, but the best show real commitment on the facial expressions of the people! Some people go all out when it comes to taking pictures with statues and others dance with the border of even breaking the law. These folks get bonus points for the shock factor for sure. One of the favorites in our research seem to be of people doing inappropriate things to Ronald McDonald! So these are the 15 more shocking of the shocking photographs we could find showing folks having a little too much fun creating weird poses with statues. Don’t say we didn’t warn you
15 Howdy Partner!
There is all kinds of fun that can be had with statues and the guy in this picture deserves a whole lot of credit for his credibility! First, let's establish that the hand position of this statue is just a little odd anyway, but it allows for a pretty great shock factor! Positioned as if pulling the guy's pants to take a look at the goods is something most people probably wouldn't think of as a pose. When you have Mr. Cowboy looking down and taking a peek, coupled with the great pose of this guy looking shocked, disgusted and delighted all at the same time, it makes for one of the most shocking and hilarious examples of statue fun we can find online. Well done sir, we salute you!
14 Copping The Ultimate Feel
Where do we begin with this photo? Well, first, why is this a statue of a kid pushing absolutely nothing? Beyond that though, the pose with this girl is both clever and shocking all at the same time. Her commitment to the project is very admirable as well because... well look at that grope! It kind of gives the appearance that she has a very lopsided top floor, but that must surely be the angle of the camera (we will assume that anyway). Her facial expression isn't really clear though, as it doesn't quite show the disgust and anger you'd expect. I mean, she didn't even set her soda down for the picture! But still, the photograph is one of the more shocking examples of creativity and being just plain wrong online, so congrats!
13 Tickle Tickle
Good old fashioned crotch jokes never get old! This is yet another creative example of how a sick mind is a terrible thing to waste. Not only does this fellow in the picture have a great idea for a hilarious pose with the statue, but he is a pretty decent actor! The statue of the woman has a hand outstretched with one finger in a pointing direction. It is also worth noting the big smile and pleasant expression on her face. The guy seems to be very thoughtful about the experience and is even scratching his chin wondering if indeed he is enjoying having his nether regions tickled as it would appear. It is hilarious and absolutely awesome how creative people can be with virtually any statue. Stellar job finding just the right pose!
12 Sometimes We All Need a Hand
What else do you do when you see a huge statue of a hand with one finger pointing straight up in the air? Well you climb up the finger and take a hilarious and very ironic picture, that is what you do! In this case, the guy was a real champ and took a couple of extra risks, all in the name of comedic (and shocking) photography. The best part of this really awesome picture is not actually him sitting on top of the finger, but rather the look on the guy's face! Squinting, painful and extremely clear as to what is supposedly going on, this photograph is certainly one of our favorites both for the creativity, the effort and the execution. You earn five out of five stars bud!
11 How Dare You!
Fun semi-inappropriate humor makes for some of the best photographs. It is really nice to see that people can still have a sense of humor about certain things. Like in this particular photograph that shows a statue with an outstretched hand and a slightly pointed finger. The woman in the picture positions herself so that it looks like her shirt is being pulled back ever so slightly allowing quite a view. The funniest part is what you can't see! The best photography leaves room for the imagination and this picture does a great job of that. The woman's facial expression shows pretty genuine shock, making the picture even better. Great work by the photographer and whoever came up with the idea. It is another one of our favorites for creativity!
10 Too Much Fun?
Sometimes with photographs like these with people making crazy poses with statues, a whole different result comes that was not anticipated! This picture is an example of such a result. Surely (we hope) the guy in the picture only meant to show that he is smacking the hippo on the rear end. First of all, the statue is just a little odd anyway, making it not quite clear as to if the hippo is yelling in pain or just yawning. But with the guy behind him smacking the rear end, he is lunging juuuuust a bit too close to the hippo's butt, isn't he? When you add in the obviously excited expression on his face, there is just a whole lot of wrong coming out of this photo. Still hilarious, but in a weird and obviously shocking way.
9 Fun With Flamingos
The picture here is a prime example of how you can do creative and hilarious things without being at historical locations with large and ornate statues. Just a regular old pink flamingo is all you really need to have a fun time with photography. Here, we see a guy who has amazingly matched his shirt to the color of the flamingo perfectly! We also see that he is really enjoying what that flamingo is doing way too much! In a pose reminiscent of something you might see Marilyn Monroe doing at a photoshoot, it may be clear that this guy found some instant embarrassment after he saw the photo. But it is too late bud, it's out there for the world to see. Chin up though, it's hilarious and shocking all at the same time!
8 Mortal Kombat
The amount of time and work that went into creating the idea for the post and then actually executing it must have been pretty remarkable. Of course, inspiration like this often comes all of a sudden, but who knows. But the genius behind the photograph deserves a whole lot of credit! Also deserving some major props is the guy in the photo. Do not underestimate the work that went into climbing up and posing for this photograph. Not only was he able to make it happen perfectly, but his facial expression, body posture and everything is absolutely perfect! I still can't quite figure out why the one statue is leaning away and holding his hand out from the other one, but we can just enjoy the artistry in the photograph and not overthink it.
7 Old Fashioned Beat Down
Yet again, we have proof that when it comes to anything related to a kick or hit in the crotch, it makes for great comedy! This photograph shows statues paying tribute to those that worked hard to build the infrastructure of our country. Add in one guy laying on the ground in just the right position and you get an entirely different meaning! Giving off the idea that the men are beating the mess out of this guy, with one aiming right at his crotch, the picture is shocking as well as comedic gold. The guy on the ground does a particularly good job of looking in extreme pain. Just about any guy can attest that something like this would certainly cause very dramatic facial expressions! Good job buddy and congrats on being in the top fifteen!
Baseball parks all over America have statues of ball players swinging a bat. People love taking photographs with these statues and they love doing it as part of the experience of going to the ballpark and watching America's favorite past time. But most people do not think to take an ironic photo with the statues, which makes this guy another creative mastermind and one of our favorites. It is nice to see some different humor besides sexual innuendo and crotch shots. This guy places himself right in front of the bat and giving the appearance that the ballplayer gave him quite the pop in the head! You have to give the guy in the photo credit for some great acting as well, because he does a great job showing the pain!
5 High Five!
Sometimes, the quality of a photograph is the shocking part. Whether that quality is on purpose or by accident, it is still really awesome! In this photograph, the guy goes running up to give the statue a high five. But notice that the statue is chained off, making the angle and perspective of the photographer absolutely vital. The man jumps up, as if clicking his heels and reaches out to give a five. In perfect synchronization, the photograph comes together with no blurriness or anything out of place. Trying to do this as well more than once would be nearly impossible I'm sure, but it makes for a great quality and absolutely hilarious photograph that we all get to enjoy. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with the world!

3 Wrong on Multiple Levels
I can't really figure out what on earth this statue is supposed to be doing under normal circumstances. It is not holding anything in particular, so I do not know the original purpose. Either way, the picture makes it absolutely perfect! The woman in the photo seems just a little too excited about getting her spanking, making this just a little wrong, don't you think? When you look at the facial expression on the statue though, it becomes even better. He seems almost to be enjoying the experience and staring off into the camera as if proudly displaying his grand talent. Who knows if there were very many passers by the day of the photograph, but it will certainly live on as one of the more comedic and shocking examples of statue tom foolery on the internet. Congrats on a creative and somewhat disturbing photographic masterpiece!
2 Less is More
People do not have to get into funky positions or spend too much time planning the funniest or most shocking picture with a statue. Sometimes less is most certainly more, as is the case with this hilarious and awesome photograph. All it takes is a pink disposable razor and the picture becomes one of the funniest on the internet! Just about everyone can look at this and think "why didn't I think of that?!" The statue does really look like it is trying to shave its arm pits and the razor is all that is needed to make us all double over in laughter. Fantastic creativity and awesome execution to this photographer, proving that you do not even have to have a person in these pictures to make it amazing.
1 Beat-Up By A Baby
Watch any cartoon that shows a baby with super powers beating the mess out of an adult and you will realize that the idea is really hilarious. In this photograph, it did not take a whole lot of extra planning or odd contortions. It shows a very young child (likely a cherub) pulling back an arm as if pulling a bow or delivering a punch. With a simple hook of the shirt on the other hand and a look of panic and anticipation of getting punched, you get a really great and shocking photograph. This is one of the better cherub statue photos we have seen in this category of pictures, so good job in making the most out of your surroundings and giving us all a pretty great shock factor and chuckle.
