Awkward Family Photos

Nothing helps relieve the daily stresses in life like a good laugh. And when it comes to laughter, can you ever have too much of a good thing? I think not.

To help you get that overdose of endorphin-generating guffaws, we searched high and wide for the funniest damn websites. And a simple laugh wouldn't be enough. We picked sites that will make tears stream down your face and have you gawking at the human condition with sheer disbelief. So click and enjoy!

Did we miss some? Let us know your favorite sites in the comments below.

 

Damn You AutocorrectDamn You, Autocorrect!

If you have a smartphone, you've probably experienced the bizarre autocorrections it can make while typing out emails and texts. Sometimes those corrections go horribly, horribly wrong. And when they do, it can be downright hilarious. Many are distinctly NSFW, but not intentionally—which is what makes them so darn funny!

The OnionThe Onion

"America's Finest News Source" does a brilliant job creating an alternative universe, just enough off kilter to reveal the true insanity of our society. I'm particularly fond of the video section, with edgy spoofs of political news and feel-good human interest stories that are only slightly more off-the-wall than the real thing.

Literally Unbelievable

What could be funnier than the outrageous stories in The Onion? People who believe those stories are real and post their outrage on Facebook! Whether it speaks to The Onion's brilliance or the propensity for people to believe anything they read on the Internet without questioning it's accuracy, I don't know, but even Congressmen have been taken in.

People of WalmartPeople of Walmart

Millions of people a year visit the nation's 3,800 Walmart stores. And while the majority of shoppers are everyday folks, Walmart attracts a certain segment of the population that are a little behind when it comes to fashion sense, and even common sense. Check out the photos and, if you want a real treat, do a search for the word "thong"—but don't say I didn't warn you.

If you want to communicate a message in English and your knowledge of the language comes from reruns of Bay Watch, it's probably a good idea to hire a translator. Of course, hiring a professional translator costs money, so why not just give it a try on your own? How wrong could things go? Visit Engrish.com to find out.

Awkward Family Photos

Everyone has those family photos that are so embarrassing you hope they never see the light of day. If you grew up in the 70's and 80's, like I did, you probably have more than your fair share. But I guarantee you, none of your photos is likely as bad as these gems. What were they thinking?

your sense of humor?

From janford on February 27, 2012 :: 2:47 pm

I think the People of Walmart site is simply mean.  Yes, the pictures are really peculiar, but the comments are unnecessarily vicious. How is this funny?

From Josh Kirschner on February 27, 2012 :: 3:28 pm

I don’t usually read the comments on Peopleofwalmart, or even most other sites, because when granted anonymity these discussions often devolve into the lowest common denominator.

But yes, the sites do reflect my sense of humor and that of others who helped me compile the list. I understand that some may have a different perspective. So let us know what sites you find funniest on the web!

I wonder about people who find amusement feeling superior to others who may not be as fortunate.
Not nice. Not funny.

PEOPLE OF WALMART

I tried to access this site yesterday and was rewarded by having malware downloaded to my laptop.  Will not try to go there again!

We've been to this site

From Josh Kirschner on March 05, 2012 :: 3:25 pm

We’ve been to this site many times and never seen an issue with malware. It also gets clean reports from Symantec and McAfee.

Can you describe what happened in more detail? Perhaps it wasn’t a malware issue or wasn’t related to the site you were visiting.

This site has gone through a variety of metamorphisis and currently does not get updated often but it’s been around (in one form or another) since the mid 90’s.
