These Hilarious Gifs All End in a Perfect Plot Twist

Life doesn’t always play out the way you think it will. Sometimes, you go into a situation fully expecting one thing to happen but are met with an entirely different outcome. If you’re lucky, things will turn out much better than you expected: Instead of rain, you’re met with sunshine. Instead of an angry boss, you get a promotion. But other times, the opposite happens: Instead of a check, you get a bill. Instead of a sweet, cuddly kitten, you’re met with a rabid mother raccoon protecting her young. (Trust me, I’ve been there.)

If your life has been nothing but terrible surprises lately, the following 30 GIFs and photos will make you sigh with relief and realize that maybe the fate of the universe isn’t so bad after all. But keep this in mind while scrolling: While it may seem like the most obvious outcome is inevitable, prepare to be surprised.

Can’t touch dis from r/nonononoyes

Comedic gold!

This wild ride

Motorcyclist gets hit by a car running a red light, flips in the air, and lands on his feet from r/nonononoyes

And this, people, is why helmets exist.

Especially because this is not the outcome of 99.9% of motorcycle accidents.
