Humour is very personal, just like taste, but here at Swide we are used to, and pretty confident with, talking about taste when it comes to food, travel, music and of course fashion, so here are what we believe to be four of the funniest blogs we’ve found.
Some unfortunate souls (like us) have been on holiday for almost four weeks, and the prospect of leaving the sunny beaches or exotic travel location behind spells out doom and gloom. We’re about to swap flip flops and bikinis for high heel shoes and blazers, and instead of looking out towards the horizon on the beach front we’ll be staring at our computer monitors for at least 8 hours a day.
As short snippets of fun, as a little pick me ups, I’ve found that blogs, funny blogs, are a perfect distraction from that inevitable tedium that can be a day at the office. Discreet but a bundle of laughs, here are 5 blogs that will brighten even the dullest back-to-work day, just make sure you’re not caught LOLing at your screen by your boss when you’re in fact supposed to be working out the seating for the fashion show in September!
Suri Cruise is a fully fledged celebrity at only the age of six, and as every celebrity that may be respected she has a impersonator that has opened a blog in her name, even Queen Elizabeth has a twitter account! In Suri’s Burn Book, Hollywood A-list sprogs are scrutinized, and frankly belittled by the little queen herself. Not even her parents, Tom and Katie are let off. The tone is cutting, bitchy and for the lovers of that kind of thing, darn right funny!
The mobile phone has changed the world as we know it. For those old enough to remember what life was like before the skype, watsapp and the sms, the mobile is somewhat of a mixed blessing. Yes, you can be reached at all times, play games while on the go and even watch you favourite shows. On the flip side, you’re reachable all the time, and for parents, the mobile is something of a digital leash. Tiresome, I know, but there if there’s one good thing that has come out of all this are parents’ text messages, so much so that an entire Tumblr has been dedicated to the cream of these hilarious conversations. Switch between you spreadsheet to these little pearls of nonsense to make that sense of imprisonment within the walls of the office after a glorious lunch hour spent in the sun disappear.
The fail blog is pretty much world renowned for its pictures and videos which highlight the attempts at greatness, or normality by humans and animals, all of which result in epic failures and much entertainment for those who scour the website. From pictures of cars driving in traffic with the grocery bag still on the roof to nonsensical Facebook status updates, and the comments below as well as humorous billboard ads, there is something to tickle your LOL button, as long as your laughs are triggered by other people’s mess ups. If you need to believe in the innate hilarity of human nature, following a boring meeting at work, this site is for you!!
The world of the mobile phone is an endless source of humour, especially drunken text messages. How many times have you begged your friends to keep your phone away from you once you’ve enjoyed your fourth Vodka tonic with a Tequila shot chaser? Some unfortunate souls don’t have such faithful friends, and their drunken escapades are recorded in hilarious, rude and purely ridiculous text messages. The people at Texts From Last Night compile what is sent to them, and frankly it makes for some interesting reading! Fancy to escape from your desk into a night time world of revelries and humiliation? See what the other side of the world, those who have fun, not those who work, get up to? Then navigate through some of these pearls and laugh your heart out!
Cats, well animals are an endless source of humorous inspiration whether they indent to or not! One of the most visited cat websites of the internet, LOLCats is a true sensation! Kittens, cats, and as of recently other fluffy creatures are given thoughts and opinions, grammatically incorrect ones, in the form of captions on funny photographs. The site now contains videos as well as images and it’s become the place of reference for any animal related humour. Clean, witty and never ending, like the love for our fluffy friends, LOLcats is your ticket to office laughs. And if your boss catches you looking through the site, he or she will not be able to resist the cuteness and humour of these animal protagonists, and you’ll be saved a scolding.
