Remember those videos from a few years ago of people getting punched in the face in super slow motions? We couldn’t get enough of those. And for good reason, watching someone get knuckle dusted in the squash is funny! If they don’t really get hurt of course. Even better is when someone gets hit in the unexpectedly by a ball. As long as it’s not you!
Kaija Straumanis, a Latvian photographer, has expanded upon the oldest gag in the books by creating a series of photos that show her at the exact moment she’s about to get demolished by an incoming missile. Whether it’s a ball, a boot, a book, or a pumpkin, the deadpan reactions from Straumanis are comedic gold. See more from her here. (h/t Bored Panda)
