Vat title: People Share Times When “There Was An Attempt” And Here Are 131 Of The Most Amusing Ones (New Pics)

Some plans just don’t play out. They may even sound good in our heads but when it’s time for action, all that we’re left with is our intentions.

About a year ago, we did a piece on the subreddit r/ThereWasAnAttempt. But since then, the community has featured so many amusing fails, we just had to do an update. So here it is.

From hugging a bodybuilder to texting teenagers “in their languages”, here are some of the funniest hiccups that recently appeared on the sub.
