Today, I’ll admit: I sort of vegged. I got a bunch of email done and I just plain ran out of will to work.
So I started surfing and thanks to some coworkers, found some web sites that specialize in certain odd types of humor.
For example, take "Indexed". It’s a web site dedicated to index cards with interesting Venn diagrams and Trend graphs that have some sort of social commentary within them.
The example to the right is a good example of the kind of index cards that are published. Humorous and lighthearted… the kind of thing you’d RSS subscribe to for a laugh.
And then there’s ICanHasCheezBurger. This is basically a collection of photos with humorous captions written on them by the public.
I’m sure you’ve seen them. Usually they entail cute photos of cats or kittens since that’s how this whole trend/concept originated… with kittens.
Now, as you can see by the photo to the left, it’s expanded to… other species.
But one of my favorite "thinking humor web sites" is Graph Jam.
Essentially it’s a collage of community created graphs that illustrate fictional scenarios that can be depicted using business charts and graphs created in Excel.
Some of them are quite entertaining as you can see to the right.
