Do you like surprises? People either tend to love them or hate them. Well, these were surprises that absolutely no one saw coming. These people had objects – ranging from food to toys to medicine – that had something hidden inside them. When they were broken or taken apart…the surprise inside was too bizarre to comprehend.

Here are 13 people who opened or broke something and found something strange inside.

What the heck?

1. Pill capsule filled with little pills

There’s quite the advanced pharmaceutical discussion going on regarding this photo on Reddit.

But we’re content to just say we assumed those capsules were always filled with powder.

Apparently not!

2. Crane-fly inside a roll of tape

An employee was getting ready to seal up a box when they discovered a crane fly had invaded the factory and ended up sealed between some layers.

Isn’t this kind of how Jurassic Park started?

3. A heart inside Cookie Monster

Inside every monster lies a wounded heart.

The Cookie Monster toy that this dog-owner found at a garage sale had a cute plaid one.

That pup looks like it feels a little guilty for disemboweling him now.

4. A can within a can

This beer can felt strange to the person opening it and there’s a good reason why.

Somehow, the can was manufactured around another can.

That certainly makes it a challenge to get to your beer!

5. A tape measure inside a snap bracelet

Apparently, nearly all snap bracelets are repurposed tape measures.

It makes sense, but it still surprised us since we didn’t know a tape measure would curl around our wrist.

6. A crawdad inside a bass

Yeah, we get it, circle of life and all that.

But that’s one hungry bass if it just ate a crawdad and went back for more when it saw the fisherman’s bait.

It was his gluttony that killed him in the end.

7. Two snowmen inside a frog lawn ornament

When this homeowner dropped a frog lawn decoration, it broke open to reveal 2 snowmen inside.

Apparently, during the manufacturing process defective or broken items are reused as filler to add weight to other larger items

Now we kind of want to break open all the ceramic ornaments we see.

8. A green pepper growing inside a red pepper

Red peppers are just riper green peppers, so the color difference between the two vegetables isn’t surprising.

We’re just impressed that the pepper inside managed to get so big.

How heavy do you think that red pepper was when it was purchased?

9. A book with a random chapter inside

This book was bound with a chapter from a completely different book inside.

Maybe it’s a two-for-one, but we’d be a bit annoyed if all of the pages from the book we were trying to read weren’t there.

10. A monk inside a Buddha sculpture

A CT scan of a 1,000-year-old Buddha sculpture revealed a huge surprise for archaeologists – a human body inside!

Scrolls at the bottom of the statue identified the monk inside as a man named Liuquan who may have practiced “self-mummification.”

The statue is currently being stored in an undisclosed location since two people are claiming it belongs to them.

11. A sad cactus inside a happy cactus

It turns out this cactus was sad on the inside.

Or else someone had a great sense of humor and decided to troll some dog owners into feeling guilty for letting their dog tear apart a stuffed toy.

It is quite a waste of material – but maybe the remnants ended up in someone’s punching bag!

12. Women’s deodorant inside shoe deodorizer

It’s great to repurpose things, but this just seems like false advertising.

What we really want to know is which one is more expensive – because we’re willing to bet it’s the women’s product.

13. A loaf of bread inside a loaf of bread

Well, that’s a little odd, especially since factories that produce these loaves are closely monitored.

The good news is that now you can make a bunch of tiny sandwiches!

The bad news is that you’re stuck with some really oddly-shaped larger slices.
