The 30 Greatest Animal Photobombs Of 2013

To be a truly great animal photobomber you must first be an artist. After that, obviously, you have to be an animal of some kind. These are the animals who 'bombed the best in 2013.

30. The 'Ruined Your Selfie'

Ruining a bunny's selfie is one of the lowest things you can do, morally, but we are not here to judge, we are here to behold, and this is a pretty well-ruined bunny selfie.

28. The Botched 'Draw Me Like One Of Your French Girls' Scenario

"I guess just draw my upper half like the upper half of one of your French girls and then crop my dumb younger brother out?"

27. The 'Ruined Your Headshot'

In case you're wondering why none of the canine talent agencies called you back about a role in some ponderous doggy biopic, the answer is in the lower left of your headshot.

25. The 'LOL, I Can Breathe Underwater'

A very specific type of photobomb, and difficult to pull off as it involves both gills and a perfect smile, but it's by far the most effective way to make non-underwater-breathers look stupid.

23. The 'Do YOU Come With The Apartment?' Photobomb

Subtle, discreet, and devastating. A photobomb of this level of technical difficulty requires hours of planning, patience, and dedication to the craft. Seamlessly executed.

22. The 'I Am Your Face'

For everyone (and God knows there were a lot of us) in 2013 who said, "I wonder what the bottom half of my face would look like if the bottom half of my face was a dog's face."

19. The Advanced 'This Is What You Look Like'

A 'This Is What You Look Like' photobomb is judged according to (A) the seriousness of the victim and (B) how far you can stick your tongue out when you are 'bombing them. This one is flawless.

17. The Reverse 'This Is What You Look Like'

An extremely difficult photobomb to pull off as it requires impeccable timing. Double points for doing it to a corgi, an animal that is traditionally immune to mockery.

10. The 'I'm Almost Certainly Going To Attack You After This'

The 'bomb itself is just a variation on a classic 'This Is What You Look Like,' but the powerful kinetic energy of this photo speaks eloquently about how the contemplative moments in our lives are mere way stations along the road to getting violently knocked off the bed.

9. The Food Critic

No matter how many marshmallows you decorate your weird fruit basket with, you are never safe from the critics. (It's worth remembering that this is a metaphor for your weird life and not just a truism about your weird fruit basket.)

6. The Hater Horse

Mercilessly mocking perfectly innocent children takes a very special kind of horse, and while some people may find haters distasteful, you have to admire a true master of the craft.

3. The 'This Is What I Think Of Your Wedding'

It is often said that the one thing in this universe more powerful than True Love is a cat's bottom. A cat's bottom is basically the 'rock' to True Love's 'scissors.' Utterly devastating.

1. The Whale

It is not an exaggeration to say that 2013 was a year that basically had its way with us, and there is no better enactment of that truth than this whale giving a baby seagull the photobombing of its life.
