15 More Images You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped

Welcome to the fifth installment in our never-ending quest to bring you the craziest, realest images on the web (see Part One, Part Two, Part Three and Part Four).

We know some of you folks out there are going to scream "Fake" no matter what anyway, but we figured we'd stress one more time that these images are, unfortunately, completely real.

#15. On the Set of 2 Ark, 2 Furious: Noah's Revenge

Everyone's reaction to this one can be summed up as, "What's the big deal? It's just two pics, one of a giant oil tanker and one of a peaceful little town--OH HOLY FUCK THOSE PEOPLE ARE ABOUT TO BE CRUSHED."

That is in fact one photo, of the The Pasha Bulker, a ship that famously ran aground in 2007 within spitting distance of that little Australian community there. The accident was due to bad weather while the captain was "eating breakfast." Apparently it became quite a tourist attraction, with people traveling from all over to see the massive stuck ship and perhaps hoping it was about to spill several million gallons of Fosters.

#14. It's the Tasmanian Devil, Get in the Car

This spontaneous tornado photo looks like the kind of CGI you see in made-for-TV movies. But if it's fake, then National Geographic is lying to us. They say it's a 4,000-foot tall twister in Kansas. We think it looks like that bank of clouds ate a bit of bad Mexican last night. In which case, we're really glad not to be that Weather Tracker guy. Cracked meteorology tip: When you're within sighting distance of a bout of meteorological diarrhea, it's good not to wear your Sunday Best.

#13. Mom, Dad, I'd Like You to Meet my New Girlfriend

This is one of those in the "not just fake but a bad fake" category, looking like something from some magazine ad selling ... bear insurance or something. But in fact it's one of several pics of Brutus the Bear and the family who's keeping him as a pet.

Brutus was raised in captivity and serves as a pet/family friend to Casey Anderson, star of Expedition Grizzly. One of Casey's major goals is to use Brutus to show that giant bears aren't the dangerous man-eating monsters that we think they are. That's a brave mission he's on, considering the previous attempt to prove that resulted in the guy getting eaten.

#12. Prostitution in the Deep-Sea World

While this picture looks like some harebrained lipstick ad, it's actually the aptly-named "rosy-lipped batfish." Though it would probably could have been even more aptly-named "the scowling old lady at the DMV." Its expression is just perfect.

Also, it uses those legs/fins to crawl around on the sea floor, because it's apparently too lazy to swim.

#11. Winner of the "Turn Your Neighborhood into Mordor" Photoshop Contest

The Internet is lousy with mind bending images of street art that turns a few panels of sidewalk into a swimming hole, or a terrifying pedestrian hazard. But Edgar Mueller's neighborhood swallowing painting makes that shit look like hopscotch.

With most sidewalk art, you can wrap your head around the illusion if you look at it long enough. But this one just gets more insane the longer you think about it. Especially when you take into account his contingency plan for rain is " leave and paint a new picture tomorrow." So while the dog perched precariously out on the ledge of the literal floating buttress might look like it's in danger of starring in the Disney version of Drag Me to Hell, it could actually ruin the whole week long project with a territory marking stream of piss.

#10. Why Buy a New Camera When You Can Strap the Hubble Telescope to the Front of Your Handheld?

What looks like someone pasted the business end of a bazooka onto a handheld camera is an actual lens from manufacturer Sigma. For the low price of $29,000, wedding photographers no longer have to actually be at the wedding, and paparazzo can steal shots of celebrity vaginas from 30 blocks away.

While the guy in the above picture jokingly posed with the camera sans tripod, we have to think that anyone who actually owns this thing will mostly be pointing it down at their lap, finally able to offer photographic evidence of the tiny equipment they're clearly compensating for.

#9. Gundam It, Japan

Proving that global economic crises mean nothing to the Japanese, they've built a full scale Gundam statue, just for the hell of it.

Oh, and by the way, it's motorized, so the damn thing moves. And we thought North Korea's nuclear weapons were the biggest threat to global safety from that part of the world.

#8. Dogaroos!

This looks like the kind of shitty crop-and-paste job you'd see on the Photoshop Disasters site. In fact these dogs live in the Philippines, and were born without front legs.

Despite the fact that it looks like the poor guys would topple over the moment they tried to wag their tails, it is apparently possible for dogs to live normal lives this way, using their strong hind legs to perfectly straddle the line between cute and terrifying.
