The thing about life is that sometimes, in some places, things just present that are way too bizarre to be true. Know what I mean? No? Ok. For fifty seconds of cheap, mindless entertainment, fix your peepers on this set of lighthearted, funny pictures. Ah. Now I feel better. I do.
Twaggies is a website that takes funny tweets from Twitter, and creates quirky visual interpretations from them. It was launched back in 2009 by editor and web producer David Israel. More than two dozen artists and illustrators have since teamed up to make the site what it is today.
The Olympics may have just passed, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be nostalgic immediately. Enter our fix: Buzzfeed’s fine roundup of pictures that show the athletes competing in synchronised swimming with somewhat synchronised faces that also manage to stretch the frontier of human facial expressions with nose plugs on at the same time. Yeah, we think we’re coping better with the separation anxiety now that we have these pictures.
Our friends over at the comedy website, Sad and Useless, have created a foolproof way to ‘help you to be a more socially acceptable alcoholic’ via your Facebook profile picture. We like. Of course.
You don’t have to be a skilled photographer to take the best snaps: some just appear out of absolutely nowhere. This site has collected together some of the funniest, cruelest, most alarming — yet completely spontaneous — photos circulating the web. Thank god for other people’s suffering!
Imagine finding this little guy in your garden. Carol Collen was tending to her garden when she noticed this oddly-shaped strawberry. The British mom couldn’t contain her laughter, so of course she showed her family and then immediately took photos to show her friends. Eventually, the funny pictures found their way onto the internet for […]
Textbooks are boring but doodles in textbooks are fun. We spotted this awesome collection of textbook doodles (I prefer to call it Textbook Art) from RocketNews24 and we can’t seem to get enough of them. All taken from the same student, who goes by the name “Chanta” on Twitter, these pictures feature both the before […]
This is self-explanatory: guys posing next to imaginary girlfriends, made possible with that magical software of all, Photoshop. We don’t know whether to laugh more at their blatant non-display of mad Photoshop skills or, well, pretty much everything about the pictures. Probably both.
Translocation, a book by multi-award winning photographer George Logan, is a collection of wonderful pictures. This work seems to have a funny appearance but the real meaning of this project is to let people know how important it is to eliminate suffering and preserve wildlife in its free and wild state. To complete Translocation, Logan had […]
Sometimes humor at the simplest form can really hit the spot. Check out these funny monkey faces and brighten your day. I think the descriptions are just as funny as the pictures, and also somewhat informative on why the monkey looks the way it does.
Finally…the moves to thrill (ehhm). Bonus is, by studying this brilliant step-by-step instructional hard enough, you won’t just be whipping some moves under your belt. Get this hitting your browser, team it with a serious enough frown and you’ll even fool Mr Boss Man into thinking you’re the busy little bee in those dragging corporate […]
APP ART is a quirky exhibit of new works by Chris Georgalas and Peter J. Ketchum at the scruffy TNC Gallery on 1st Ave, New York. With warped sensibilities Ketchum investigates the past refelected in vintage printed matter: ads, card games, matchbooks and black and white photos from the 1860s to the 1960s. In repurposing these words and images, the new work becomes uniquely his own. Actually, who else would claim them? Georgalas combines images with found objects – a full BED! – to make funny, melancholy, challenging pictures. He’s been called the new Duchamp. Yikes! The exhibition runs until October 26.
Our friends over at Buzzfeed have compiled a wickedly fun collection of 27 Things That Are Not Like The Others, with the disclaimer that ‘Something about each these pictures just seems to stick out.’ Indeed they do. Priceless. [via Buzzfeed]
London based Bif creates creates really great promos and commercials. Elements is just something they did for fun, and like much of their work, is wonderfully weird and funny. I think work like this is emblematic of the new visual possibilities offered by more accessible and powerful CG software.
Not just since Harry Potter have owls been so popular. Hardly any hipster girl is to be seen without her owl chain these days! These nocturnal creatures represent wisdom and dignity. All the more funny, then, is the idea that the people from Hungover Owls had. They take random pictures of knackered looking owls and combine them with a funny ‘hungover remark’. The result certainly triggers a giggle. Or three.
