There's a fine line between a clever pun and mind-blowingly stupid pun, and honestly it seems like there's no way of knowing which is which until it's already been thrown out there. Kind of like a faulty antique grenade, but for laughter. Here are some more dad jokes that go father than ever before.
Karen thought she could get through on a lie, but had another thing coming when tech support got wise to her BS. For a more direct approach, here's a boss who used an eye gag to remove some problem customers. And sometimes, fellow customers join in, like this customer who weaponized the tip jar to defeat a Karen.
"Value" is a very slippery concept, and what one person might choose to throw away could equally be seen as a major score for someone else. There are idiots throwing away guitars, TVs and jackets just because of a small fixable issue, and it's the sworn duty of the rest of us, the shameless garbage sifters, to pluck that ripe fruit-o-the-trash. Ironically it's often the stuff that people try to sell that's the real garbage, like this weird and dumb stuff people tried selling online. For a glimpse at the kind of people throwing nice stuff away, here are some of the most expensive things people witnessed.
Get a bunch of people spewing words at each other and you're bound to catch some verbal lighting in a bottle. Whether it's people trying to remember the weirdest parts of their childhoods or complete strangers attempting to bond over extremely specific references, tumblr hits hard with the shiny tumblr gems.
It's amazing how quickly stupid tasks become irrelevant the moment it starts costing the company money. The powers that be came down and told this part-timer that they'd have to check their email daily, so naturally, for this employee, it seemed like that should count on company time. For another one, here's a micromanager who demanded too many updates, so an employee fought back with even more updates.
A whole lot of us have looked at some fixture in our home and thought "man, it wouldn't be too difficult to gussie that thing up a bit. I could borrow Doug's saw and crack that baby open. Maybe throw some extra pipes in there. Yeah, I could have a super toilet." Most of us who have that thought realize very soon after that it's not as easy we might think it is. The rest of us go for it and end up with some low budget DIY engineering solutions.
It's everyone's fantasy at some point in time to be able to just say enough is enough and walk out the door of their job. These employees were put through enough that they felt it was a reasonable option. And not only that, they came back for burgers. For another satisfying walkout story, here's an employee who walked out but ended up getting promoted. And here are some "screw this, I'm out" moments.
It's Tuesday again, do you know what that means? That's right, it's time for your weekly dose of stupid Lord of the Rings memes. This week, we're steering clear of trending formats (cough The Weeknd cough). Instead, we're offering up some fresh-ish, general LOTR stupidity - as well as some old, gold and classic Tolkien-related reposts. Sometimes you just have to reject modernity and embrace tradition.
A Homeowner's Association is supposed to make sure that a place is basically pleasant to live in, but many have the opposite affect. A really bad HOA is run by corrupt, power hungry people making self-serving and draconian rules about the exact hours one should take out their garbage cans. People have to deal with some real nightmare HOA situations.
There's something spectacular about witnessing the unadulterated audacity of absurd entitled people. Whether it's a bridezilla trying to bully a wedding photographer into working for free, a landlord who's baffled why they have to provide their tenants with working faucets, or just some guy who's trying to buy a brand new TV with a wallet full of monopoly money, it never seems to get old. Entitled people with their laughable boldness keep finding new ways to demand ridiculous crap.
Doggo snaps are always a pleasure! Dogs, in general, are just the goofiest, giant (or small) waves of energy and happiness. When you come across a random dog on the street, you bet you can't help but smile, right? We know, we're the same way. We can just see their happiness and it somehow infects us, even if we don't know the pup.
Dogs are love. They ooze love and we're just here to beak in their beautiful energy. Doggo snaps harvest that energy and help us spread that joy around. If you feel like you need some extra lovin' today, you've found yourself in the exact right place.
It's a personal choice to spend your whole day learning about mistakes and horror, but at the same time it can get to be an enormous bummer that makes you lose faith in people. That's why it's a decent idea to clear the air every once in a while with some wholesome memes. It's important to remind oneself that people are still basically decent, and we could use a wholesome shot of niceness.
Sure, every story has a whole lot of loose ends, but extra enjoyment can be had when we try to tie up those loose ends into an impenetrable, Gordian-knot-monkey's fist-like-forlorn-Christmas-light-ball of double meanings and equivocated contexts. Y'know, fun. For some more over-analysis, here's Tumblr's extreme analysis of Ratatouille.
Cats on catnip: the saga that starts and never ends, the most amusing piece of entertainment any of us ever get to watch, the madness is long and hilarious, but the crash is even funnier. There is nothing in the world that makes me laugh harder than watching my cat lose her mind with a catnip toy in her mouth. I never see her as active as when she's got that nip available.
And so the madness continues, with people sharing pics of their cats losing their minds on nip. Have you got some pics of your own to share of your cat losing your mind? Come share them with us and make us all laugh in our Facebook community: ICanHas Storytime.
Quitting a bad job can be a breath of fresh air, especially if you've got a new, better one lined up and nothing to lose. There's no better opportunity to be honest to management than when you know you're not coming back. It's frustrating situations like these screw this I'm out moments that make leaving a bad situation worthwhile. But also be wary when looking for a new job, because there are some definite interview red flags.
