In which these are 5 things making me laugh

Because sometimes, darling, we all need a good laugh.

(Warning: Some of these have quite grown-up language. So hide yo’ kids.)

5.  Hyperbole and a Half is a gift, a gift, I tell you, to the Internetz. (Her God of Cake one nearly made me cry, I laughed so hard because that is the tinies on sugar, I swear.) But this one, Why I’ll Never Be an Adult is my all-time favourite.

4. I have a weakness for Hipster Memes.  So Alli Worthington‘s late night pinnings on Pinterest. I mean, the woman has an entire board dedicated to Honey Badger (and the fact that he does not care). Her LOLZ 4 EVAH board and Chuckling to Myself board, in particular, are just lovely. A few choice favourites:

3. I just love white boys that rap. It makes me so, so happy. A Prius! A Prius! And the fact that Imma pay my 80 bucks for 6 things and get the heck out? GOLD.

2. This one is for my fellow font-nerds. It’s got awful language right from the get-go (f-bombs galore) but if you lose your mind every time you see Comic Sans, you will get it, forgive me and thank me. If not, I apologise in advance (please don’t send me hate mail).

1.  And finally, this.  My sister and I have the same sense of humour. We always joke around that no one else laughs at our jokes but we ALWAYS laugh at each other’s jokes. To us, we’re the funniest people on the planet.So when she passed this along to me with tears in her eyes from laughter, I knew it was going to be good.

And oh, it is good. Nature show comedic narration with British accents (which, as we all know, make everything better)?

Yes, please.

If I had a British accent, I’d never shut up.

So what’s making you laugh these days?

     Ahhh, so fun! TOTALLY agree with you on that hyperbole and a half post. “Internet forever!!” and “Clean ALL the things?!” are parts of our everyday vocabulary :)

  • Rachel

    Hyperbole and a half + British animal voiceovers = so much wonderful laughter in our house. <3

  • Stitching Seams

    You like Hyperbole and a Half, therefore we must be friends.

    Will have to watch the videos when I’m not at work. Thanks for a light-hearted post…just what I needed!

  • Ladette K

    Oh my gosh.. that video had me laughing out loud while Jack wondered what in the world?  Thanks for sharing!!  I can’t wait to share with my husband.

  • Alise Wright

    OMG, that McSweeney’s post is one of my very favorite over there. It SLAYS me.

    And Allie is awesome. “And also there were spiders the whole time” is a staple around here. Also “we r sound making buddies!” (I am a horrible parent in that all of my kids know and love Hyperbole and a Half. They whisper, “She says the f-word sometimes.” Yeah, she does.)

    true confessions: i have always, always hated comic sans. and i have loved that mcsweeney’s monologue for a long time now. i am currently teaching literacy to refugees who have never learned to read or write in ANY language, and one of the best fonts to use is . . . . COMIC SANS! it turns out it really does look the most like handwriting, plus the lowercase a’s and g’s are much closer to real life writing than most. the irony is not lost on me that the font i once hated i know make all of my class handouts in. 
    ps. love mcsweeneys, love hyberbole and a half.

    Hyperbole and a Half is hilarious. :) 

  • Becca

    Ahhh the British animals video is hilarious!   And Why I’ll Never Be an Adult is so true to my life it’s scary. 

  • wendy

    Bahahaha!!! Thanks for all the laughs (and the ‘wasted’ moments of my day)… CAKE IS THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS!!!

  • Catherine

    Oh but you are missing one (but again ,viewer discretion is advised)

  • Elizabeth

    Oh yes, there was a whole series on the funny creatures ‘Walk on the Wildside’.  We watched it all. 

    Can’t comment on the rest as my computer wouldn’t let me in.  I am one of those quaint Christians who still gets a little shocked by bad language.  😉 

  • Beth Cole

    I love this blog post. I’m off to bookmark these now!

  • Kristi Ferguson

    I watch those British animals whenever I need a giggle. They are SO funny!

  • hobomama

    #5 & #2 are slaying me. I had to forward the Comic Sans one to my husband, a fellow font nerd.

    True story: Got a rejection email the other day. In Comic Sans.

      I would want to frame it, I think.
