12 Satisfying Moments of Juxtaposition

It's not often that things work out just right. Sometimes, though, the stars align and everything adds up in such a way that creates the perfect, comedic coincidence. Finding an occurrence like that in the wild is sure to brighten your day just a little. How lucky are you to have stumbled upon two articles, ads or posts that fit together so perfectly without anyone even trying? Arguably it's even better when it's discovered in real life, but having algorithms work well for once is a delightful experience all on its own.

A wonderful word used to describe this type of incident is juxtaposition. It's important to document these rare little happy accidents, and luckily many people do, and they then choose to share them with us via Reddit's /r/juxtaposition. Here's 15 recent and comedic examples of the juxtaposition phenomenon.
