False expectations are disappointing and heartbreaking, but as time passes they can be a great reason to laugh! Like when you order something online and get the most ridiculous version of it or when a beautiful picture on the packaging is nothing like what’s inside!

17. No bacteria will get inside, but you won’t get inside either!

22. Penne with spinach? Or spinach with penne?

23. This turned out to be a slightly different clown.

24. In a perfect world, cookies always look just like the picture on the package!
