Why do these things that look sad, well, look sad? Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon where we take a stimuli, usually an every day object, and our mind interprets patterns or assigns a human like face to it. You've seen this any time you look at a chair, or a house, and see three holes and go: "that sure looks like a smiling face, doesn't it honey?" and your wife goes, "not now Robert, I'm just trying to relax," so you draw a funny picture of the chair or house face to give to her later when she's less grumpy. You're a great husband.
Take a look at these pictures of everyday objects that not only look like they've got faces and personalities, these particular ones look like they're having a terrible day. From sad objects like coat hangers that appear to be shrieking in horror, to freshly cut fruits that seem depressed about their imminent demise, these objects just might make you cry with how depressed they seem.
