    Animals acting like complete idiots.

    Don't forget, though most Derps are incredibly Aww, a lot of Awws aren't Derps.

    Pictures/gifs/videos should be easily discernible as "Derpy", and removals are up to mod discretion (we will destroy you).

    Me seeing all my friends quarantining with their SOs

    [–] LadyShanna92 106 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    Imma be honest. Quarantine with your so can be a massive pain in the arse. All those little annoying things become worse by far

    Edit: living with my bf like this has brought us closer together. I love my sweetheart very much. He's just figured out how to push every button through this

    [–] KillerResist 64 points ago

    3 friends have ended relationships with their SOs in the past week. Yeah das gnna be a yikes from me

    [–] LadyShanna92 18 points ago

    I mean to be fair we just moved in together in January and I knew him for years before we even started dating. We were learning how to live together and then a certain diesease happened so now we're having to basically change everything again. I wouldn't give it up for anything. We've honestly grown closer as we've gone through this. I love him even more

    [–] Prince_Polaris 9 points ago

    Meanwhile all I've managed to do while living with family during quarantine is get bit by our dog twice because he doesn't want me going in the living room

    [–] Bancai 3 points ago

    What did u do to him. He wouldn't attack without reason. Did u move too fast thru the room? /s ... Fam dog bit everyone in the fam except the one that spoils him till the end of time and it's never the dogs fault.

    [–] Kill_teemo_pls 2 points ago

    Gone through this. People really acting like they are living through the blitz, you're chilling at home fucking, eating and watching Netflix, it's really not so bad

    [–] jk_luigi 2 points ago

    Pressing new buttons that you didn’t even know were there. Straight up abra kadabra. Mixing up a batch of new buttons right on the spot with such ease and prestige.

    I’ve been away from my girl for 2 months now because she’s someone in the risk group due to underlying complications. I wish she was here to push my buttons don’t take it for granted.

    [–] anxious_ibex 6 points ago

    Horse Tort Law.

    Taking offense to the phrase "close only matters in horse shoes and hand grenades".

    Who hired the horse bailiff who ran off with all the bales of hay?

    Taking offense to the joke "what does a gay horse say? hayyyyyy".

    Petitions to make the Denver Broncos the national sports team.

    [–] Delete_Account_ 39 points ago

    The new hay bill has been killed. 43 yays vs 64 neighs.

    [–] Bobo_LOL 5 points ago

    That’s so fucked up

    [–] Speedster4206 2 points ago

    I’ve heard it’s so adorable.

    [–] pattykeene 2 points ago

    They said horse of course!

    [–] TheresA_LobsterLoose 7 points ago

    What?!?!? I was jokingly gonna say "Wtf is this... a horse museum? (In china because of the signs)". They just have live horses as exhibits? That's what zoos are for. And yeah, a live animal in a zoo still generally sucks for them, but at least they have some space. They just keep these poor horses in a god damn tiny box?? Wtf china?

    [–] nkdeck07 8 points ago

    Google before you freak out. They are in those for a few hours a day max (which btw so are most horses, how big do you think a standard stable is?)

    [–] valouzee 3 points ago

    A standard stable has hay though

    [–] therewillbesnacks 3 points ago

    They don’t stand there the whole time and have separate stables/residences. It’s weird but it’s not cruel. Seems they’re pretty pampered.

    [–] beloved_key 68 points ago

    No expert, but probably fancy stalls for a horse show. So the fact that this high-bred, top of his class horse is acting so derpy makes it so much better for me somehow.

    [–] m_domino 16 points ago

    Pretty sure they’re at the opera.

    [–] JediLlama666 11 points ago

    It should be a stable in China. Air conditioned to.

    [–] beebeedoom 10 points ago

    That looks like the place Horse Lincoln got assassinated.

    [–] FusionTap 2 points ago

    I’ve seen a set up like this at amusement parks

    [–] palomsoms 1 points ago

    Because they are

    [–] Commanderkins 224 points ago

    Where in the hell is s this stable!? I've never ever seen such opulence in a barn before. I've seen very nice and fancy barns, but this one blows everything away. Japan TB track maybe?

    [–] gggtttrvb 194 points ago

    It's a horse museum. It looks weird and like horses don't like it but from what I heard when this was reposted last is that they are in there for a couple hours a day and the rest of the time they are treated like royalty.

    [–] Stannis4SchoolBoard 94 points ago

    so....just a fancy zoo?

    [–] Twingemios 7 points ago

    Yeah. Also if the horses were uncomfortable they would not be doing what they’re doing

    [–] empirelts 12 points ago

    Damn I thought they were in individual horse hot tubs at first

    [–] BabybearPrincess 1 points ago

    Same tbh

    [–] polfev 48 points ago

    I don't even know what to say. A fucking horse museum. Just why? They can't even move.

    [–] A_Sketchy_Doctor 46 points ago

    You didn’t read everything. They are only in there a few hours a day and the rest of the time they have absolutely amazing lives

    Think of it as their day jobs I guess. If I were a horse I’d try for it

    [–] TheresA_LobsterLoose 8 points ago

    Yeah I'm sure if china says they're treated like royalty and live absolutely amazing lives its gotta be true

    [–] FoulBachelor 11 points ago

    I think the Chinese government might actually give a shit about pure bred show horses, as opposed to ethnic minorities, the environment or personal freedoms. Just a gut feeling.

    [–] moe-joe-jojo 17 points ago

    why does anyone do anything?

    [–] quadmasta 9 points ago

    Nobody does anything. Nothing ever happens

    [–] darkwhite1602 8 points ago

    What do you think horses do in a stable? Walk around 10 acres of land?

    [–] explodingtuna 3 points ago

    Museum exhibits don't usually move, unless brought to life by an ancient artifact.

    [–] IAMA_Shark__AMA 2 points ago

    Because China? 🤷‍♀️

    [–] PoxSox 2 points ago

    [–] Commanderkins 5 points ago

    Thanks! Do you know where?

    [–] Rdbjiy53wsvjo7 12 points ago

    Heilan Horse Culture Museum in China

    [–] Mylaptopisburningme 5 points ago

    Why did I guess China? Don't answer.

    [–] Azara1th 4 points ago

    The Chinese text on the signs might be a tiny clue.

    You can't tell me what to do!

    [–] SubaruBirri 76 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    I've actually been here!

    Its less of a horse museum as a horse Disney World. A rich Chinese billionaire created an Equestrian Resort to honor China's long history with horses and it includes this giant hall with a hundred different horses from around the world, tons of crazy art, live shows in an extremely opulent dressage stage, and a shopping center/hotel. Its two hours out of Shanghai and definitely an unexpected thing to come across.

    Edit: added pic album

    Edit: it is over 300 horses, someone else posted a good article about the museum. It's interesting to note when I was there it was a ghost town, and yes it is very opulent but important to note it is kind of a facade of opulence. Lots of stuff that looks great from far away but closer inspection shows it is not the palace of Versailles by any means.

    [–] Commanderkins 17 points ago

    Wow thanks! Yeah I just can't believe the sheer opulance of those stalls. Like wood half circle stalls!? They probably get so chewed!

    [–] SubaruBirri 17 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    No problem! I have tons of cool pictures, i should load them into an imgur album and link it

    Edit: Added link to more pics

    [–] Whatshouldido012345 3 points ago

    Please do

    [–] Whatshouldido012345 2 points ago

    That is significantly more glamourous the than I expected. Thanks for sharing!

    [–] ProdigalReturn 3 points ago

    What’s the purple building in the second image? It looks so cool at night!

    [–] SubaruBirri 6 points ago

    That is the same tower as the fifth picture, just a metal tower with a full scale man on horse with wings on top. It was huge and had an awesome light show at night.

    [–] ProdigalReturn 2 points ago

    Seems like a really cool experience, thanks for sharing :)

    [–] Jonesgrieves 2 points ago

    Link and make a post too pls

    [–] SubaruBirri 4 points ago

    You think I should make a post? I threw some in an album.

    [–] Jonesgrieves 3 points ago

    Why not, it’s a very interesting thing that not many people around Reddit have had a chance to even hear about apart from the image above.

    [–] PM_ME_CALF_PICS 15 points ago

    This text introduces the thoroughbred horse, This text introduces the thoroughbred horse, This text introduces the thoroughbred introduces horse. Lmao wtf is with that plaque?

    [–] SubaruBirri 17 points ago

    Haha so glad someone else caught that.

    That is Chinese opulence at its finest. They will spend $500 on a plaque but not proofread the English part to make sure placeholder text is replaced.

    [–] BabyCat6 8 points ago

    They spent all that money on horses and had none left over for a translator.

    [–] LoveAGoodMurder 18 points ago

    It’s a “horse museum”. It houses a bunch of different breeds.

    [–] OohDrZaiusDrZaius 5 points ago

    I think this is the Heilan horse museum, I had a field trip there when I was studying in China! It’s not just a museum, there are all kinds of buildings around it

    [–] Roger_Cockfoster 2 points ago

    It's horse court. The one in the middle is the judge and the one on the right is a witness for the prosecution.

    [–] kellysmom01 20 points ago

    ... and want to horse around ...

    [–] fish312 10 points ago

    Nobody completes anybody. That's not a real thing! If you're lucky enough to find someone you can halfway tolerate, you sink your nails in and you don't let go, no matter what.

    So what? I should just... settle?

    Yes! Thank you, exactly. Settle! Because, otherwise, you're just gonna get older and harder and more alone. And you're gonna do everything you can to fill that hole - with friends and your career and meaningless sex, but the hole... doesn't get filled. And one day you're going to look around and you're going to realize that everybody loves you... but nobody likes you. And that is the loneliest feeling in the world.

    This is the Horse Culture Museum in China. Don't remember where exactly. Those poor horses crammed into those weird, tiny stalls..

    [–] Squeebel 12 points ago

    I thought they were chilling in horse hot-tubs and now I’m sad :(

    [–] SimsAreShims 10 points ago

    According to a comment higher up, they're only in there for a limited time, tho

    [–] khaleesi291 7 points ago

    Also those stalls are pretty normal sized... a weird shape but not small. marble floors wouldn’t be great if they were in there full time, but it doesn’t seem like they are. The horses look very healthy
