LIFE has amazing photo galleries depicting wars, economic crisis, groundbreaking photography, Hollywood’s golden years and photo timelines of influential people. They also have galleries with interesting subjects, for example the photo gallery with the headline – “Animals Driving Cars.” Since I like nothing better than good, but mostly odd, photos, I have decided to share a few here. I do not know why I find them hilarious, whether it is the role juxtaposition or the faces of the people in the photos, these are priceless!
