If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again… though in some cases it’s best to stop, take a deep breath, and have a good long think about what you’re actually trying to accomplish. It takes a lot of guts to admit that, hey, maybe you were the supervillain here or that maybe it’s best to cut your losses and move on.
Some of the most hilarious and groan-worthy fails end up being shared on the majorly popular ‘There Was An Attempt’ subreddit. A community that units over 3.25 million redditors, r/therewasanattempt is a celebration of bad luck, incompetence, and plain old attempts at mustache-twirling villainy. We’ve collected their best and freshest viral posts to share with you, Pandas, so scroll down, enjoy, and upvote your fave pics.
When you’re done, drop by the comments and tell us about the biggest ‘There Was An Attempt’ style fails you’ve ever seen. If you love the subreddit and what it stands for (aka all the humor), then go give them a follow and check out Bored Panda’s previous articles about them here: Part 1 and Part 2. And remember, Pandas, don’t ever give up on your dreams… but only if what you’re doing is objectively good.
