3 Blogs That Make Me Laugh Obnoxiously

I'm serious about my career and my life. Too serious at times. Below is a list of blogs that get a solid, snarky laugh out of me every single time I visit them.

Hipster Runoff: http://www.hipsterrunoff.com
  • My favorite social commentary on the young, hip and completely fucking clueless. A true ode to ALT-Culture. I've laughed out loud to every post so far. Beware: some nudity and pretty much everything will offend some segment of society.
Queen B Mommy: http://www.queenbmommy.com/
  • Picture what one of the pea-brained women from the hills would blog about if suddenly knocked up and married to a wealthy man. This blog doesn't come off as satire at first, which is why it's so good... and scary!
The Economy Isn't Happening: http://www.theeconomyisnthappening.com/blog/
  • If you come to this page, realize the author has a book and he wants you to buy it. You will be reminded repeatedly. Thank god almost everything he writes is witty, on point and warped. The free download is cool, but if you get a chance, pick up the book with the pooch on the cover, it's worth the $15 bucks.
Please let me know in the comments what low-brow or high-brow humor gets you giggling on a regular basis.

I've always been a fan of Gawker, mainly because I'm obsessed with the NY media world. The snark keeps me snickering.

Then Gawker got me wise to Fuck You, Penguin, which posts a new cute animal photo daily, along with angry commentary. It's sort of the anti-Cute Overload.

The Bloggess cracks me up like nobody's business.

I just found My Mom is a Fob today, via the 2008 Weblog Award nominations.

A fellow Twitterer alerted me to Geek & Poke today, a great social media-related comic strip.

And finally, I enjoy reading Sal's stuff over at Everyday Thoughts From Life.

Johnny Truant said...

Yes, but who the hell would ever read a blog written by a guy named "Johnny Truant"? That's just retarded.

JR Moreau said...

Hi Johnny. Why don't you actually leave something constructive rather than basking in the glory of some schmuck liking your blog?

Self-depreciation is so 2008.

The one I thought of right off the top of my head was Cake Wrecks (http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/). They're hilarious... although I like cupcake cakes, even if they consider them wrecks. :-D

I'm also a big fan of Cakewrecks and You Suck at Craigslist.

BTW--Here's what my ad of craigslist looked like (in response to your comment on my blog):

Haha these are great! The hipsterrunnoff one, I'm sad to report, reminds me of my brother. That's just how he is, so I might be a bit biased and probably find that even funnier than I should.

Sarah said...

Damn, all my suggestions are already taken! The blogs I go to for laughs are Queen B Mommy, The Bloggess, the Mom/Dad Fobs ones, and Cake Wrecks. All of those but Cake Wrecks I found through Twitter. I will definitely have to check out all the other recommendations here now- cause it's not like I don't have plenty of other distractions to keep me from my work. :P

Oh and Andrea, nice Craigslist ad!
