Good stuff I found on facebook

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

Every day I, and probably most of you, see a lot of images with quotes, funny stuff, political statements or “like if you don’t want kids to get cancer” in my Facebook news feed. The quality of these differ a lot, some are downright genius – most are not and some are just plain bad. I post these from time to time too, when I like them for some reason and they have some content that I like or find funny/provocative/interesting/dumb or any combination of these. Below I have collected some stuff that I have received and/or posted in my Facebook feed, feel free to use them if you want. I have no idea who has the rights to these, if anyone – so use them at your own risk 🙂

Funny signs

Friday, September 25th, 2009

At the moment I am lacking something that I really want to write about, so I have indulged in “Google image searches” instead 🙂 There is a heap of funny stuff out there in Intenetland and I found some signs that i found amusing. Some are meant to be funny, while others probably was put up in all sencerity – making you wonder what  the people that put up the sign without checking it thoroughly are really thinking..

The best headlines of [insert year]

Friday, August 28th, 2009

Newspapers, and especially tabloids, have a tendency to overdo everything, to catch your attention and basically sell more papers. Also, many headlines are decided upon by the desk, and not the actual journalist who wrote the piece, and sometimes that, combined with deadlines and a hectic work environment, results in funny headlines.

I have added a few of them below, and you can find more on the Internet. I have seen many of these labeled as “Best headlines of 1997”, “Best headlines of 2002” etc, and the only thing that is for certain is that somebody claimed that they were real headlines at one time or another, but I can not vouch for that .

I find many of them rather funny:)

  • Include Your Children When Baking Cookies
  • Something Went Wrong in Jet Crash, Expert says
  • Police Begin Campaign to Run Down Jaywalkers
  • Drunk Gets Nine Months in Violin Case

If you have any more suggestions or other compilations of headlines, please feel free to post them in the comments.

While on the subject, I did a quick check for more newspaper related stupidity, and found the following headlines and clippings. Its amazing that some of this stuff was actually passed by whoever passes stuff.

Motivational and demotivational posters

Monday, August 17th, 2009

Everybody needs motivation from time to time, but more often than not, demotivation is much more to the point and funnier. Below is a tiny collection of some of the motivational and demotivational posters that are floating around the Internet for you to get upset about, humored, annoyed or fascinated by- if not  irritated over. Still, emotional numbness is not good for you, so have a look and see if any of them strike a chord with you. If you don’t believe me, ask your physician 🙂
