The internet has completely ruined our minds. Even something as innocent as cartoons paused is not safe.
Leave it to the users on reddit who call their group, Out of Context Cartoons, to point this out to us regularly. They really bring the goods. While not all of these fine examples of warped thinking are from this group. Some come from various unorganized corners of the web. But don’t be fooled, your childhood is definitely going to be ruined.
If you want to keep your optimistic innocence in tact, we suggest you stop scrolling now.
Let the childhood ruining BEGIN!
