As second-largest discount retailer in the United States, and more than a century of business under its belt, Target is by all accounts winning at business and life.

Still, sometimes things slip through the cracks at some of its 1,797 stores, and the marketing campaigns that support them. And when they do, the results are amazing.

Check out 17 of Target's most hilariously epic fails below:

Tasty Diapers
Mmm. So real. So delish.

Like every other big name company, Target has fallen victim to some unintentionally hysterical Photoshop fails over the years. That's hardly a surprise.

It's the in-store signage that really slays us here, though.

From its inability to understand what "clearance" means to some seriously head-scratching promotional ideas, these are "WTH" moments to a T.

A few weeks ago, THG chronicled 13 failed attempts at online seduction, as countless folks in the Internet era have attempted to text message their way into the hearts pants of their desired paramour.

Others, however, believe that a picture says 1,000 words (all of them sexy!) and have simply sent their loved ones a naked photo in an attempt to scintillate.

There's just been the occasional hiccup: sometimes these images go to the wrong number. Talk about a major oopsie!

Nothing, of course, will ever top this college student, who sent a nude picture to her dad (yes, her dad!). But the examples below are pretty darn embarrassing... and hilarious.

So, in the wake this week's The Fappening, it only seems appropriate that we try and comfort Jennifer Lawrence and company via the following slideshow. You aren't alone, ladies.

My bad!
More like you're GOOD, man! Thanks for the laugh.

It's a universal truth readily accepted by smart people everywhere: some people just shouldn't have access to the Internet. At all. Not even a little bit.

Do not pass Go, do not collect a Facebook login. Seriously. 

Why? Look no further than these 31 examples and cringe:

5 O'Clock Somewhere
Drinking and driving is a really bad idea. Drinking and driving combined with taking a picture and posting to Facebook is even worse.

Another universal truth? Second (or third) hand mortification is REAL.

As in, wee are totally mortified for some of the people who have been caught committing the sin of gloriously and gratuitously oversharing on social media.

Check out these 31 TMI Facebook posts and be really, REALLY glad you're not one of these people. (Unless you ARE one of these people in which case, wow. Just wow.)

But wait! There's more!! People LOVE to fail on Facebook. Love, love, love it. Even if these folks' posts don't fall into the TMI category, they are legendary ...

A new set Downton Abbey Season 5 promotional posters were revealed this week, much to the delight of the acclaimed and popular drama's fan base.

One contained a pretty obvious goof, though. Can you spot it?

Downton Abbey Promo Pic

The Downton Abbey photo fail shows Hugh Bonneville as Robert Crawley and Laura Carmichael as Lady Edith, and behind them, a very misplaced object.

One that certainly doesn't belong in WWI-era England. At all.

Yup, there's a plastic water bottle up on the mantle! Ouch!

While we understand the importance of staying hydrated on set, you'd think someone would have realized this was in the shot before taking the photos.

That or airbrushed it out. It's not that hard, as we've seen from countless photoshop fails in which people went a little too crazy. But this is what it's made for!

Just when you thought you'd seen everything when it comes to reality shows and parenting fails, something comes along that makes you question humanity.

A mom finds herself in the hot seat this week after she decided, somehow, to dress up her four-year-old daughter in a homemade Hooters waitress outfit.

Her little girl's got talent, she says, and she hopes to find success in the pageant world. Makes even Dance Moms and Toddlers and Tiaras seem classy ...

4-Year-Old Hooters Waitress

In the U.K. documentary Blinging Up Baby, viewers meet Liane, an unemployed 33-year-old mom who has high hopes for daughters Bessie-Sue and Scarlett.

"They are very talented little girls," she tells the crew, explaining the outfit.

"You do try and be original, so something you have not seen before."

In addition to making a Hooters outfit for Scarlett, Liane also teaches her youngest daughter a dance routine that features the splits and pelvic thrusts.

Sometimes, we need to cut our mothers some slack.

It's not really their fault that they don't know how to text message, considering the era in which they grew up. And, hey, at least they're trying to connect with us!

Other times, however, there's just no excuse for their behavior.

Like when they snap a lingerie selfie with their toddler in the room. Or keep talking on the phone while their child plummets to the ground. Or when they do whatever the heck the mom in the following photo is doing as he son looks on.

So the next time you feel weird about sending a nude photo to your dad, remember: parents mess up, too. A LOT.

Really Blowing It
Someone needs to swallow hard and tell this mother what she's doing wrong.

There's a lot of stimulating stuff on the world wide Interwebs, but this video of a grandmother twerking on a car is all but guaranteed to turn you on.

To medication or a good psychiatrist.

In most cases, saying something speaks for itself is just an easy way of saying you don't feel like explaining it. But in this case, it's 100 percent true:

There is not a whole lot else to say about this grandma on Vine, except to wonder if she was put up to this or if it was archive footage from Cops.

As far as we can tell, there is no deeper significance to this clip than the obvious fact that it's a woman of advanced age having sex with the air on a car.

Twerking may have officially jumped the shark here, though, if that moment hadn't occurred long ago. What Miley started, grandma just finished.

To cleanse your visual palate, here are great moments in celebrity twerking GIFs that are slightly less likely to scar you for life and give you nightmares ...

Turns out, mothers aren't the only ones who can fail at text messaging.

Twitter user @dearfashionn made the most grave of online mistakes this month, attempting to send a sexy naked photo of herself to her boyfriend… but instead directing the lewd selfie to her father. OOPS!

Similar to these inappropriate exchanges, the conversation between father and daughter escalated very quickly - but not in a good way.

Scroll through the following texts to see how this man responded to his worst nightmare and take note, women around the world:

Don't ever took up with someone whose name is near your parents in your phone contacts. That's just a rookie mistake right there.

Naked Photo Fail!
This daughter sent a naked selfie to the wrong person: her father!

With apologies to Anchorman, brawls between rival news teams are not the only things that can escalate quickly.

Sometimes you're chatting with a guy online... and all appears to be relatively normal... and then, BOOM! He hits you with a very personal question, typically related to one of your private parts.

Such is the theme of Straight White Boys Texting, a Tumblr dedicated to overly anxious men on the Internet.

This totally classy (and very effective!) phenomenon is not reserved for straight white boys, of course. It's safe to assume the following failed attempts at online seduction were perpetrated by those across all ages and backgrounds.

Have you been victimized, female readers? Take comfort below in at least realizing that you aren't alone:

"Sext your partner" they say! "It'll be good for your relationship" they insist, with confidence.

Who is THEY, anyway, 'cause there's a good chance they've never seen sexts like these!

Food as foreplay, bingewatching Netflix, and fort building exercises are among the topics these senders used to lure the objects of their affections into the bedroom.

If these people are trying to be sexy*, they're totally failing miserably. Check out 29 funny sexting fails, quite possibly the least sexy sexts ever sent.

Seriously. These texts are about as sexy as Miley Cyrus riding a giant hot dog**.

Cheese and Wine
Candles, wine, and an assortment of cheeses all sound like the makings of a great night. So why does this sound so very unsexy?

* - We're at least 82% certain none of these sexts are legitimately trying to be sexy. But there's always 18% of the population who would use lines like this to pick up dates.

** - Or who would find images of Miley Cyrus riding a giant hot dog sexy.
