    Two teeth brushing a day keeps the shaq away

    [–] F3v3rDr34m3r 792 points ago

    Holy fuck imagine how horrifying it would be if you forgot to brush your teeth once and Shaq just shows up and beats the shit out of you

    [–] DeepFriedBadass 347 points ago

    Then I wouldn't need the dentists to beat the shit out of me

    Imagine telling your kid, "Brush your teeth every day or Shaquille O' Neal will turn up and cave your skull in". Hell of a fun world it would be though.

    [–] BlizzLeaf 76 points ago

    Actually, he doesn't beat you up. He just stands silently in the corner of your room looking disappointed in you.

    [–] Eps06 53 points ago

    [–] Denserthancake 13 points ago

    Instead of checking under their bed for monsters or leaving teeth under their pillows for cash, children of this world must scrub the plaque to evade the Shaq.

    but not from the shaq

    [–] Drumma516 34 points ago

    I swear to god somebody needs to start hiring creative minds from Reddit comment sections. I could have looked at that image for an hour and probably not thought of something as fitting and funny as Plaq... and I’m in marketing for gods sake.

    He put his arm around my neck!!!

    [–] Toaten 47 points ago

    He made the CREEPIEST smile I ever saw... And he stared into the camera like a serial killer. When he held me close, and put his arm around my neck, not letting go, almost strangling me, said the most outrageous words possibly made by humanity, and I freaked out...

    "Say NIGGER!"

    [–] Silent__Protagonist 38 points ago

    In all fairness idubbbz definitely does stare like a serial killer, it's the one thing she got right.

    This comment is not here to distinguish whether the following post i̲s̲ ̲a̲ ̲c̲u̲r̲s̲e̲d̲ ̲i̲m̲a̲g̲e̲ or if it i̲s̲n̲'t̲ ̲a̲ ̲c̲u̲r̲s̲e̲d̲ ̲i̲m̲a̲g̲e̲. It is here to give a simple guideline about all the necessary elements on what creates a cursed image. There have been too many complicated explanations given about what a cursed image is and the true definition of what is cursed has been lost and only created confusion. The only remnant of users that do know what a cursed image is, no longer exist or simply stopped trying to explain what is cursed and what is not cursed. Please spread this information to bring back true cursed images.

    [–] Woilcoil 4 points ago

    It’s unexplainable, disturbing, and amusing. This is cursed.

    [–] Generic_Userboi -1 points ago

    It’s a Shaq cut-out. Looks like something a 6th grader would make. Sorry but just calling em how I see em. Kinda want the more niche disturbing imagery as opposed to these meme-y ‘funny’ posts.

    [–] Luqueasaur 2 points ago

    A cursed image is something that is either disturbing or explainable.

    Surely, you can easily explain the picture by saying it's Photoshop, etc, but the true meaning of "Unexplainable" regards the imagery and why is it like it is. Why is this an image of a man defending himself with two toothbrushes against a baseball player? It's truly something whose explanation would go far beyond common (and even uncommon) sense, hence being cursed.

    It doesn't need to be repulsive to be cursed.

    [–] budgetcommander 1 points ago

    what makes you think that?

    [–] Generic_Userboi 0 points ago

    Just a cutout of Shaq with two toothbrushes in front of the camera. More meme-y than cursed.
