A photo gallery capturing some of some of social media's most hilariously 'obvious' things has been compiled to highlight just how funny people can be.

People share snaps of the most painfully-obvious things

They say time is precious – but if this hilarious collection of images is anything to go by, some people have far too much of it on their hands, so much so that they seem to go out of their way to use it up on pointless tasks.

In a series of pictures shared on social media and compiled in a side-splittingly funny gallery, people reveal the most painfully-obvious – and unbelievably pointless – things they have ever seen, from ridiculous signs, to completely ludicrous ads.

And it seems no industry is safe from these brilliant blunders, be it grocery stores promoting ‘freshly squeezed orange juice – made with freshly squeezed orange’ or a match company which not-so-helpfully warns users that ‘fire harms children’.

Other totally brainless blunders included a TV news report advising viewers that snow melts into water, and a newspaper that advised its readers that a new study had found out-of-town trips require travel.

Those hoping to make a quick buck also deployed some cringe-worthy tactics that shoppers saw through immediately – from a second-hand car dealership claiming all cars were priced under $4,000, ‘except for the ones that are more’, to a cleaning brand offering two smaller bottles for the same price as a larger one.
