No Good Deed Goes Unphotobombed

(sigh) It was a simple thing, really. He was swimming in circles with some fishing line tangled in his teeth, and I was there on the dock, so I fly over and pluck it out.

End of it, right? But no, he’s had a few, and now he’s all “I love you, man!” this and “Anything you want, bro!” that, and I haven’t been rid of him since. Just my luck.

Via Neatorama.



  1. Stupid narwhal, always looking for attention. Seagull is not amused (new disapproval king contender?).

  2. Mary (the first) says:

    How do people get these photos?? Amazing

  3. BTW, a great white shark (her name is Mary Lee!) was tracked in NY waters last week (she’s moved on northeast since). That would be a rather terrifying photobomb (Cue Roy Scheider 😛 ).

    Want to track Mary Lee and other sharks?

  4. That is the most awesome link ever! wow! thanks Theresa!

    Unhappy bird must have just found out that Monopoly is forcing the Iron into retirement and bringing on the “Cat” to get things rolling past the boardwalk.

  6. McJeffersons says:

    Go home Whale, you’re drunk.

  7. McJeffersons says:

    Teh mod lounge, I haz it.

  8. The weary look on the bird’s face convinces me that NTMTOM had the power to read his little birdy mind.

  9. Love the happy Whale in the background.

  10. That’s a whale of a photobomb, it’s going to be hard to beat! 😉

  11. It’s all fun and games ’til some baleen whale photo-bombs your moment!


  13. Awwww shut yer blowhole!

  14. D’you think NTMTOM would prefer that we stop saying “I love you, man!”
    to him? (sigh)

  15. the mod lounge had me at tasty snacks

  16. Coffee Cup says:

    I will not get anything else done today.

  17. Sharpy has ruined coat hooks for me forever.

  19. Naw, itsh (hic!) all right maaann, yer beautiful (burp!), don’t ever change… (passes out)

  20. 😀

  21. *rummages around purse for Sharpie*

  22. Here, I have a bowl of warm water…

  23. Heeheehee! :mrgreen:

  24. Reblogged this on tekArtist.


  26. man, I must have graduated from the College of No Get-Um punchlines….unless the warm water is for pranking Mike who is drunk (I’m not sure WHY he’s drunk)….then I’m okay ….the Sharpie part I don’t get b’c Sharpy is a Mod God (among other things) not a permanent marker which is a Sharpie….

    *head swimming in potential/ semi-unresolved punchlines…*

  27. BLIN or Bling?

    changes the point O reference if ya know whud Ah meens…

  28. ok now I see drunken references, furder up da page …

  29. maybe we can get him to agree to the coffee table book!

  30. fish eye no miko says:

    That’s a humpback whale, actually.

  31. fish eye no miko says:

    Ah, but who’s photobombing who?

  32. BLEENY!

  33. Ooooh!

    I don’t think even Theo would object if we have plenty of SOUR CREAM. *shifty eyes*

  34. emmberrann says:

    Ooh, Sharpy, you dunnit now!

  35. emmberrann says:

    We still await the much anticipated NTMTOM coffeetable book with much anticipation. If not much else.

  36. emmberrann says:

    *adjusts pince-nez* aherm. I am informed that any coffee table book NTMTOM does would have to be a collaboraion between Cute Overload and NTMTOM. I would have no objection to that, because I would know Who dood It.

  37. Sorry but I gotta call shenanigans on that one. If that whale was busting out of the water right as that photo was taken, there should ripples and water spraying about.

  38. Yeah! I’m with you!

    (Quick, tell me what I’m doing!)

  39. We are eating bleeny blinis!

  40. Another NTMTOM masterpiece! I didn’t get to read this post yesterday but that’s OK but it has brightened up an otherwise extremely annoying morning! (Cat puking on the bed, spilling my coffee because I was trying to walk and drink at the same time, etc. 🙂 )

  41. HAW HAW HAW HAW with bleeny cheese and bleeny berries!

  42. [silent glower]
