Les plus étranges sous-titres, selon Redditnovembre 4, 2019
Someone asked Reddit to list the “REALLY REALLY weird subreddits.” They did. They also listed a lot of cute but not actually weird subreddits. I’ve collected the actually weird ones, plus some of the cute ones. NSFW subreddits are marked as such.
Many of these subreddits were small or abandoned before this Reddit thread, but they’ve been revitalized with fresh new redditors, and you can soak up the sweet new content.
- Fedlegs (NSFW, for sexy lady pictures): Pictures of women with bare legs, but their legs are yellow. In a post that’s supposed to explain this subreddit, the moderator says: “Years ago, I had a weird recurring science-fiction-esq dream where girls who showed off their legs had them turned yellow by means of a permanent paint.” I’m not sure what level of irony or fiction this subreddit is operating on, and it might be the most actually confusing subreddit on this list.
- BreadStapledToTrees: Literally that. Photos of bread stapled to trees. There are new pics every day. Sometimes there are variations, like how the crucifixion of Jesus technically counts, if you believe in transubstantiation.
- unexpectedthreefifths: If you see anyone mention the number 3/5, you can show it to this subreddit.
- Gregfuckedarock (NSFWish for implied sex): Memes about being horny for rocks. There’s some kind of Steven Universe motif and I don’t care to learn why.
- DeepIntoYouTube: Weird-ass videos from YouTube’s bargain bin.
- Lithuaniakittens: A meme subreddit that’s occasionally weird enough to be funny.
- Ooer: I AM NOT GOOD WITH COMPUTER
- ooerintensifies: That but more
- FourthWorldProblems, FifthWorldProblems, SixthWorldProblems, SeventhWorldProblems, ZerothWorldProblems: All parodies of FirstWorldProblems. See also: SecondWorldProblems and ThirdWorldProblems. It actually goes up way past seven worlds, but I stopped counting after 21stWorldProblems.
- SubredditSimulator: Bots try to imitate real Reddit posts. There’s another subreddit with a more advanced algorithm. Both reach a linguistic uncanny valley that will make you worry you’re losing your mind.
- BetterHoagieDown: There’s only one post in here. The story, if true, would be tragic and disturbing. But is it true?
- longfurbies: Furbies that have been turned into snakes, sandworms from Dune.
- FearMe (NSFW for horror): Legitimately upsetting (but usually not gory) horror fiction images.
- honeyfuckers (NSFW for porn): For people who wanna bang a bee, or wanna joke about banging a bee.
- upvoteexeggutor: Honestly more fun than weird, but you deserve a break after the horrors above. This is the only subreddit I’ve seen where all the post images combine to make one long image: Exeggutor, the palm tree Pokémon.
Not That Weird, but Good
- picturesofiansleeping: Ian’s roommate used to upload pictures of him sleeping. Maybe once I would have found this weird, but I’m on the other side of all those truly bizarre subreddits and frankly I find this one cozy and cute.
- WtWFotMJaJtRAtCaB: “When the water flows over the milk jug at just the right angle to create a bubble.” Not weird, but relaxing.
- VXJunkies: Every hobbyist knows the fun of custom-flitexing your first VX, and the frustration of hemoglobbing the SATDOS into overskid!
- HaveWeMet: Of course we met! We’re old friends, [usernamehere]! How’s the fam?
- grandpajoehate: These people really hate Grandpa Joe from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
- IsEricWearingShorts: This subreddit tracks whether a certain guy named Eric is wearing shorts or pants every day. According to its sidebar, this subreddit has two internal factions, but not the ones you would guess.
- FormerPizzaHuts: It’s pretty easy to spot when a business takes over an old Pizza Hut. What with the roof and all.
I’ve omitted some suggestions that are just weird porn, because frankly weird porn is not hard to come by online. But go read the full Reddit thread for more.
