16. Kissing the Sphinx

Dryest. Lips. Ever.

15. Falling into the Grand Canyon

This one is pretty well executed, but many others pale in comparison.

Wash your hands.

13. Blending in with the Terracotta Warriors

Betcha wouldn’t do this if they were real warriors.

8. Rubbing Buddha’s belly

Perhaps this will bring you better luck with your photography.

You’re free to do what you want, but that doesn’t mean it’s original.

You wish.

This goes for ladies too.

Bad when you do it, even worse when One Direction does it.

3. Holding up the leaning Tower of Pisa
