I hope someone makes memes out of these funny animal photos

I learned today that there is a contest called the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, which selects the funniest animal photos submitted by professional and amateur photographers each year. The gallery of finalists includes some true gems, like a bear getting hit in the face by a fish, a zebra falling over, and a waving penguin.

The competition is for a good cause — every year, it supports a conservation organization, and this year, it’s working with the Whitley Fund for Nature, a charity in the United Kingdom.

It also seems like great fodder for memes. But I am only medium funny, so I’ll leave it to others to come up with some better ideas than I possibly could. These are some of my personal favorites from the finalists! I hope that you are inspired or at least manage to make your boss giggle at an inappropriate time in a Zoom meeting, like I did when I sent these to her earlier today.

I am obsessed with the one single little monkey finger resting on the fallen monkey’s chest.

This reminds me of those TikToks of what men in college look like when they lean in to kiss you.

The bear just looks so surprised. I’m in awe.

This is really relatable.

You can see the rest of the finalists in a gallery here. The contest also has a People’s Choice Award, with voting open until November 27th. Winners will be announced on December 8th.
