Oh man, an entire blog dedicated to humorous animal pics with clever, shouty captions. What more could you possibly want? Yes, we agree: this is officially our new favourite Tumblr.
This might have been happening for a while now on the Internet, but it still puts a smile on my face every time I look at them. As far as I’m concerned, it all started on a forum thread in 2008, but people keep uploading more and more pictures everyday. You’ve got to love them.
When I was living in China, I often marveled at the stunning fashion choices many of the locals made, whether conscientiously or not, that would turn heads anywhere from Williamsburg to East Berlin. Accidental Chinese Hipsters takes a less mean-spirited yet equally hilarious approach than Vice’s Do’s and Don’ts in its celebration of happy fashion accidents in the Middle Kingdom.
Having trouble finding what you’re after in the dating world? Brisbane girl Courtney Beck is, so she decided to harness the power of the web and social media to find herself a girl. And so the Tumblr Blog, Reasons to Date Courtney Beck, was born: ‘Lipsticks, femmes, straight girls, bi girls, I know what sort of women I like, but where are they in Brisbane? Reasons to Date Courtney Beck is my way of trying to find them, and date them. Who am I? I’m Courtney, 29, single for a year and a half, and my friends think it’s time i started bringing some girls to dinner’.
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.
I love this Tumblr. Not just because my own father could probably make the grade, but because it also proves that despite what our Williamsburg friends may believe, nothing they do hasn’t been done before.
Ok, so you may not be perfect. But at least you don’t have Steve Buscemi eyes. That’s right, Steve Buscemi eyes, Yes, his distinctive set of peepers hace ruined the faces of many a beautiful women on this Tumblr. If the eyes really are a window to the soul, then Steve’s soul is one strange world indeed.
Forget Lesbians Who Look Like Conan O’Brien (if you possibly can). Our new favourite Tumblr is I Hate My Parents, which features photo after photo of kids who ‘hate what is being done to them, but one day they will get their revenge’.
