Being awkward is a gift you were given when you were born (even if you didn’t ask for it). Some people are naturally photogenic, at-ease in social situations and don’t get anxious over every interaction. 

These animals are not like those people. These awkward creatures are the spirit animal of anyone who has ever tripped over their words in public. If you’ve made yourself look like a total fool, these animals can be your support group. They’re way worse.
