When it comes to books, particularly of the children's variety, context is everything ... or nothing. These excerpts are frankly very difficult to explain.

Check out 17 unintentionally disturbing moments in kids' books below:

A Helpful Anatomy Lesson
A helpful and not at all gross anatomy lesson, courtesy of two cute elephants.

Some things don't need to be illustrated for the younger set. Other stories would've been more or less fine if it weren't for an unfortunately chosen object or phrase.

Whether it's the lens through which you view a photo or in the sense that something was written in a bygone era before words took on new meanings, it's all about the context.

In these cases, context, or lack thereof, leads to some classic imagery, whether it's from urinating elephants, foul-mouthed animals or demonic children.

Intentions may be pure, but things can get a little awkward when you try to explain certain things to kids, or do so in inadvertently frightening ways.

Remember Draven Rodriguez?

The senior at at Schenectady High School in New York who posed for an AMAZING photo with his cat, Mr. Bugglesworth, and petitioned for it to count as his official portrait?

Sadly, his request got denied. But, heroically, the school’s principal, Diane Wilkinson, stepped in with an unexpected and truly inspired counter-offer: 

Would Rodriguez and Mrs. ​Bugglesworth want to pose with her and her chihuahua, Vivienne?

They could include their photograph in the yearbook as a way to raise awareness for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and rescue animals such as Mr. Bugglesworth and Vivienne?

So, how did Rodriguez respond to this opportunity? How do you think?!? Check out the finished product here:

Pride cometh before a fall. Donald Trump may not have fallen far off his high horse, but he did fall victim to a classic prank in keeping with this old adage.

The real estate mogul and professional blabbermouth, who spends most of his time on Twitter railing against "losers," also loves to stroke his own ego.

To that end, he left himself vulnerable to the Internet's witty, wicked ways:

Donald Trump Tweet

Exploiting Trump's vanity, a prankster played him like a fiddle, sending him a pic of a sweet married couple who also happen to be serial killers.

"My parents who passed away always said you were big inspiration. Can you pls RT for their memory?" Phil Bradbury (Twitter handle @Feckhead) asked.

Trump, with whom flattery will get you everywhere, obliged.

The only problem? The image actually showed Fred and Rosemary West, a couple convicted of torturing, raping and killing 10 girls in the mid 1970s.

When it comes to the world of online dating, some people just...well...

They just shouldn't do it. They're creepy, weird, or overly forward.

Or just plain disgusting. Or all of the above.

It's just not for everyone is our point.

Mirror Mirror
On the wall...this guy is terrible. The most terrible of them all.

Maybe they're punking everyone else on Tinder and OKCupid, but something tells us these 25 people who totally fail at online dating are actually serious.

Seriously screwed up, no doubt. But there's no doubting their sincerity.

Amazingly enough, sometimes these insanely absurd messages don't make their recipients run for the nearest convent! Sometimes, they WORK!

Check out a gallery of some of the more unlikely successes below:

Taylor Swift has once again proven herself the coolest chick ever, rocking a shirt that refers to a classic meme and a favorite joke among her fan base.

Swift stepped out in New York in a yellow T-shirt reading, "no its becky," a reference to a Tumblr post about the singer which recently went viral.

The original message on Tumblr (below) showed a vintage high school photo of Swift wearing a tiara, only the person who posted it said otherwise.

"This is a picture of my friend Becky," the Tumblr post read. "She used to be a happy, popular girl until one night she snorted marijuana at a party."

"She died instantly," the post goes on, urging, "Please, don't do marijuana. It's the most dangerous drug out there. Please don't wind up like Becky."

Another user quickly responded, "Pretty sure that's Taylor Swift."

At which point, another hilariously replied, "no its becky."

Yesterday, we posted the GIF of Corgi puppies simultaneously tripping and tumbling to the ground, side by side, step for step.

The following video also involves a creature falling to the ground and, although it's not nearly as precious as the photo linked to above, it's a lot more funny.

The footage simply features a woman filming her feline eating because, hey, why not? Cats are very cute.

But in trying to get the best angle and in attempting to capture the ambiance of the moment, the owner doesn't see where she's going and... CRASH! SPLAT! OUCH! 

She falls over a chair, flat on her butt, feet kicked high into the air.

Watch the mishap take place now and take note of the cat's adorable reaction:

Really, this is the purr-fect reminder NOT to film pets unless your feet are planted fur-mly on the ground. We’re very sorry. But it had to be written.

It's rather clear at this point that mothers should never use their cell phones.

At least not to text message, at least based on these 37 hilarious text message fails by moms around the country.

But what about fathers? Should you live in fear of what message will show up next from this parent on your screen? Sometimes.

Definitely when he mixes up one letter in reference to his plans for your sister; and also definitely when you accidentally send him the emoticon of your boyfriend's penis.

Other times, however, Dad is sort of cool. One might say he's "jiggy" with it. Or at least Dad himself might say that in an attempt to relate to his offspring.

Below, we've compiled a list of 9 text message fails made by fathers across the globe. Remember: it's okay to laugh because these weren't sent by your father.

I know what that means...
... and you'll know to be a lot more careful when sending text messages in the future.

Mom and dads aside, we ALL can agree that grandparents should stay far away from social media.

True story: On my first cross-country flight, I was bumped out of my window seat by a man in a skirt. Not a kilt. A skirt. Made of early 90's parachute pants material. 

He fell asleep about 30 minutes into the flight, legs flung apart, mouth hanging open, the stench of his most recent meal wafting into my face. Then he woke up and did yoga in his seat, a Downward Dog so steep I almost saw his Frank and Beans.

Make Yourself Comfortable
Not even international flights are an excuse to treat the row you're in like it's your own personal living room.

That, dear readers, is the sort of (true) story behind an Instagram sensation known as Passenger Shaming.

At least one of these pictures makes us wonder if Justin Bieber might have been on one of these flights. He does have a penchant for peeing in places that are not toilets, after all.

How can a wedding proposal got horribly wrong, even after your loved one says yes?

Let’s just say you’re in a paddleboat with your girlfriend… and you’ve lined up some friends to spell out the all-important question in sign form on the shore… and your significant other says yes... only to then slap your hand in excitement...

... and KNOCK THE ENGAGEMENT RING INTO THE WATER!

Yes, the same engagement ring on which you likely just spent multiple months' salary.

You'd probably react in a similar way as the guy below, wouldn't you? Check out the face he makes (of sheer panic) as soon as the piece of jewelry goes flying and note the girlfriend's tears.

We hate to laugh, but those are decidedly not tears of happiness:

Chalk this up to an epic wedding proposal fail.
