Life can have a tendency to kick you in the gut, or in the head a la Holly Holm on Ronda Rousey, and really have you down in the dumps. When that happens, some people turn to a big tub of Ben & Jerry’s (note, some people, not some women!), some turn to the bottle, and those who are of a religious inclination turn to prayer. Personally, whenever life gets me in a chokehold, I seek comfort in none of the above. Given all the fight related analogies used already, you can be forgiven for thinking I’m an MMA or wrestling junkie. I’m neither…my not so guilty pleasure in life is comedy. And when I do get that gut check (sorry, I don’t know where these are coming from) from life and need a little pick me up, I have a little browse on the World Wide Web for some funnies from some of my favourite comedy websites. I took the time out to list a few of my favourite “pick-me-up” sites here, and here they are in order of my preference, but to be honest, they are probably all equally hilarious!
I’m not sure I would want to be alone with female with fake taxi. Take a look at this trailer video. She’s pretty much doing anything she wants!
If you think huge dick break and nothing happens then take a look at these videos!
Easily the funniest site online! Featuring user submitted content, i.e. screenshots of text conversationswith epic autocorrect fails that are laugh-out-loud funny. There is something just innately hilarious about technology taking something innocent and just making it downright ridiculous, filthy and/or cringe worthy. One altered word can change that sweet, well-intended message from your mum into a vomit-inducing malapropos. DYAC is part of the Pophangover Network and (along with some of its related websites, including Parents Shouldn’t Text and Wrong Number Texts) is run by Jillian Madison, obviously a very smart and funny person. DYAC is guaranteed to have you splitting your sides laughing and comes highly recommended if you need a good laugh.
Engrish, according to the admin of the website, is “simply defined as the humorous English mistakes that appear in Japanese advertising and product design”. However, the posts on the site, some of which are user-submitted, are from all around the world, albeit with the majority being from Asia and the Orient specifically. The website is not maliciously ridiculing people who do not speak English well, nor is it being racist in any way. It merely highlights, humorously, the epic fails that come from some poor folks’ attempts at communicating with English speaking tourists/customers when they themselves are not well versed in the language. The hilarity is in the mistakes that occur when something gets lost in translation and ends up being nonsensical, rude or just plain… hilarious!
Lamebook is a hilarious parody website that is not endorsed by or officially affiliated with Facebook. It is a blog that posts user-submitted content ranging from ridiculous status updates, mums sharing too much on their kids’ posts, calling them out publicly and just generally embarrassing them, to cringe-inducing conversations between friends, lovers, etc. The purpose of the blog, as stated by the webmaster, is to post all things lame but hilarious found on Facebook, hence the name Lamebook.
CollegeHumor is one of the biggest and most popular comedy websites on the internet. But despite the fact that it is a mainstream website with 15 million unique monthly users and over 100 million monthly page views, it is still one of the funniest websites on the World Wide Web. It features content uploaded daily, including jokes, articles, pictures and videos that is either provided by the staff or user-submitted and approved by the staff. As a matter of fact, the user-submitted articles, when approved, earn the writers between $25 and a hundred $100 per article. So if you have a funny story, you could share and potentially earn a little pocket money!
