Laugh And Be Happy: 15 Hilarious Blogs

Laughing Horse SmallEditors Note: This is a fantastic guest post by Barrie Davenport of Live Bold and Bloom

There is no better cure for a bad mood than laughter. Not just a little giggle, but side-splitting, milk-coming-out-of-your nose, hard-to-breath laughter. It’s like having an emotional colonic. Cleans out all of the stuff and purifies the soul. It’s hard not to feel better after a convulsion of hysterical laughter.

When I want to laugh like that, there are a couple of friends I always call. Within minutes, we can hardly speak because the tears are rolling, noses are running, and our breath is coming in short pants!

In my own blog, I write frequently about how to find sustained happiness. This kind of happiness involves a shift in perspective and sometimes a lifestyle overhaul. Laughter, and the cleansing joy that it provides, should be a daily ritual that contributes to sustained happiness. Like a spoon full of sugar, it helps the medicine go down.

But sometimes spontaneous laughter eludes us. Stress, hormones, depression, boredom, and many other factors, can put us in a funk that makes it nearly impossible to feel the faintest bit jocular. I was feeling that way when I started my research for this post. After looking at dozens of laugh-out-loud blogs, I don’t even remember why I was feeling dreary.

So, do you want to laugh? I mean really, really laugh? Here are some hilarious blogs that you can check out when you are ready for the big guffaw. Warning: have tissues and water ready.

1. Hyperbole and a Half

This is my all-time favorite. It’s written by Allie (no last name provided), who happens to be a stunningly beautiful girl. Even as I was pasting the link, I had to stop and read this woman’s latest post. She has these crazy little cartoon drawings to illustrate the workings of her bizarrely humorous mind. Two of my favorite posts are the story of how a fish almost destroyed her childhood (fish story), and the dinosaur goose incident. If you don’t die laughing, there is something wrong with you.

2. Crabby Old Fart

Don Mills is the crabby old fart in question. He epitomizes the word “curmudgeon” — but with wit. He hates young people and bloviates on every possible youthful offence with side-splittingly funny, politically incorrect satire. His topic categories are titled: “Top Problems with Young People”. The topics are drugs, piercings, rap music, sex and tattoos. You get the picture. I love his post called “God Damned Boy Scouts Have Gone to Hell in a Hand-Cart“.

3. Awkward Family Photos

Pictures speak louder than words, and they often make you laugh harder. Childhood friends Mike and Doug started this blog after finding awkward family photos lurking around their own family homes. Now they have a cult following of people sending in some of the sickest, strangest photos I’ve ever seen. Really great fun. Send them one of your own!

4. Olga, The Traveling Bra

This is a blog about a sexy, black bra that travels around the world and appears in the strangest places. Like that little garden gnome. Olga has many exciting adventures, and she wants to keep you abreast of them. You will find this blog quite titillating and very funny!

5. Cake Wrecks

When professional cakes go horribly wrong, according to Jen, the Cake Wreck creator. I was leery when I first saw this blog, but like a wreck — it’s hard to tear your eyes away. There are some really hysterical cake mistakes that make you wonder whether cake decorators actually need to read and write in order to get the job. Jen’s wit is — well, the icing on the cake!

6. I Do Things So You Don’t Have To

Is the title intriguing or what? What does she do? Will she clean out my cat box? Will she go in the fitting room for me so I don’t have to see my butt in the three-way mirror? The mysterious J.D. (again, no real name given), is sort of like that guy on TV who does all the nasty jobs that no one else wants to do. J.D. does this and more, and then writes about it for our benefit. She’s eaten a bacon candy bar, vacuumed her hair, and played nude Casino. Now you don’t have to. Darn.

7. Passive Aggressive Notes

A blog where other people’s dysfunctional missives become the fodder for public entertainment. This blog features “painfully polite and hysterically hostile writings from shared spaces the world over.” This is the stuff that we don’t have the guts to say out loud to people, so we plaster it up publicly for the entire world to read. Weirdly, it’s so snarky that it’s really funny.

8. I Can Has Cheez Burger

If you are one of the three people left in the world who hasn’t seen these kooky cats and the wicked captions with the photos, that’s a cat-tastrophe. These are cool cats with attitude — sort of a cross between 1950’s beatnik cat meets urban funk cat. You don’t have to be a cat person to find these kittie ditties funny.

9. Probably Bad News

Mostly, it’s just really bad headlines. Like, “Report: Landis Admits Doping and Fingers Armstrong” or “Men with Weapons Cited for Chasing Squirrels”. These must be written by witty reporters who either have no supervision whatsoever, or they have no sense of humor and don’t realize how ridiculous or perverted some of these headlines sound. Either way, it’s great stuff.

10. There I Fixed It

This is taking the old Band Aid-to-fix-broken-eyeglasses trick to the extreme. My son once created something we called “The Polish Taxi”. He duct-taped two skateboards to a plastic chair and had his friends pull him around behind their bikes. This clever blog extrapolates this creative theme with some pretty wild fix-ups and inventions. Laugh-out-loud funny photos.

11. Avoid This Job

This blog is similar in concept to Probably Bad News. But instead of news stories, they feature job advertisements. I love this one: “Dwarf Wanted for Oompa Loompa Position”. How do people find these things? Maybe there was a job listing that read: “Person with Nothing Better to Do Wanted to Scour Job Listings for Stupid Job Titles”. I’m glad there is such a person, because it’s a really funny blog.

12. Unnecessary Quotes

This is a blog about — guess what??– “unnecessary quotes”. Just like those. The really funny part of this blog is the commentary by Bethany Keeley, the writer for the site. It’s amazing how many ways people can misuse quotation marks, and how something so inane could be so funny.

13. Fail Blog

The tagline for this blog is “helping you feel better about yourself every day.” After you view the photos on this blog, you will definitely feel better about yourself. These hysterical photos capture something very, very — wrong. Take a look. You’ll see what I mean.

14. I Love You, But

All you will see on this blog is caricature drawings of men and women. When you click on a face, you’ll find out the “but” that comes after “I love you”. Plenty of great reasons why some relationships don’t work out. Really witty.

15. Cracked

This is the Superstore of humor blogs. It’s a compilation of articles and videos from regular contributors, as well as submissions from readers. There’s something for everyone here. You could spend a day trolling around and laughing until you fall out of your chair and hyperventilate. When you want heavy doses of laughter, this is the place to go.

Since Amit is a comedian, among many other things, I’m sure he has some blogs to add to the list. I hope you do too. So please include them in the comments so we all can share a laugh.

I hope you enjoy lots of laughs and many happy hours surfing these blogs !

    Hi Barrie, Let me be the first to welcome you as a guest blogger here. You have sure compiled a cracking list and this ties in perfectly for me as I’ll be doing some stand-up comedy this weekend.

    I for one can’t wait to check out those blogs and learn about bloggers who really don’t take themselves too seriously and know how to get the maximum funny from life!

    I’ve been stuck in bed for the past few days and I have been blessed with watching plenty of Family Guy and Scrubs, two of my favourite shows! There is a bit where Elliot made a joke about JD and she said she laughed so hard she pee’d a little…ewww but funny!!

    Welcome and thanks for the awesome post! :-) x

    • Amit,

      Thank you so much for inviting me to post. I am honored. This was one of the best times I’ve ever had doing research for a blog post! I could hardly get it written because I was laughing so much. Here’s to your continued success as a blogger and comedian. Thanks for letting me tie the two together for this post.

      Barrie

  3. He he he he! Loooooove it! Thanks Amu xxxx

    Prayers and Giggles! Kavi 😉

  4. Wow Barrie, is there no end to your talents!

    I look forward to laughing my way through all these links in more detail soon.

    And Amit- get well soon!

    These are great. I had not heard of a single one. Unnecessary Quotes had me particularly “laughing”. Great for a Friday. Humor is so important for maintaining an uplifting mood, after all; being the maker of our life requires being the molder of our moods. Thanks for the humor

  9. Milan Bakrania says:

    Excellent post! Laughing is a reaction that many forget about or take for granted. In my opinion, it should be our natural reaction in times of despair starting from the diaphragm and rippling out through our system. Deep and loud to allow the endorphins to be released from our brains and deliver essential chemicals to the organs of our body. Laughter truly is the best medicine!
    Milan

  10. I found your site through Don Mills. I love his blog as well as the Failblog and “There I Fixed It.” I will check out the others you have listed.

  11. Barrie,

    I did not know many of these humorous blog. I like a few of them. I like crabby old fart as it sounds so similar to one of my relative :-) and awkward family pics? sure I have a few, but that site takes a cake. Thanks for introducing these sites here. How appropriate as Amit is also in to humor.

    Amit,
    Hope you are better now. Get well and rest well.

  12. Pat Ford says:

    That horsey picture is just fantastic, we had a lady in the office who was a bit goofy and we always used to say she could eat an apple through a letter box and this just brought all that back, I remember watching the last Sir Norman Wisdom Interview that also bright back fond memories

  13. Carrie says:

    This is an awesome list! I’d like to add one I found the other day. It’s videos of weird tributes made by people on youtube. People are really crazy.

  34. Hi Amit. I’m so glad I found this page! I love them all, but probably the “Crabby Old Fart” the most I think. I wanted to start a blog of my own & have definitely been inspired to start one by some of these blogs (among others). I would love it if you could give me any tips for getting more readers though? I don’t expect to be mentioned on a page like this, but I shall keep going anyway in hope of being more successful eventually. I think everyone seems to be doing a blog these days! Once again, thanks for putting these up. Gave me a really good laugh.
