Websites and Blogs I thoroughly enjoy

I'd like to raise some traffic for some sites I really enjoy visiting everyday. They keep me entertained and thus should do the same for you!

Humor Sites

Most of all, I love funny sites. Here are a couple that you should check out if you enjoy a good laugh. If you don't enjoy a good laugh, then there's probably something seriously wrong with you.

List Of The Day is a wonderfully funny site that re-posts some funny lists from other websites without actually having to visit those websites (like Maxium, for example). Full of funny photos, some which readers contribute, Craig List postings, videos and Engrish, this is a place that I check regularly throughout the day. I have found other funny sites through this blog as well.

White Ninja is a comic that follows the adventure of White Ninja. As described by its creators

"White Ninja Comics are not for the weak of mind. They are a brilliant satirical commentary on controversial worldly issues. They can be enjoyed on many levels. Scholars, Philosophers, and the like, who possess the intellect to analyze and break down the comics to their hidden, and often devious, roots, will enjoy White Ninja to its fullest degree. Others, like you and I, however, can still enjoy the comics for their light-hearted surface humour and funny drawings."

Cake Wrecks should be a household name by now. A showcase of some magnificent looking cakes, as well as some very sad, sad looking attempts - many from bakeries.

11 Points is a blog of lists, all which go to 11. Ranging from sports, to pop culture, to the obscure, there are some interesting facts amongst these lists!

The Oatmeal mostly consists of comics about grammar. And T-Rexes.

Mudtown is another comic without continuity. It is hard to describe as it has no theme, except a lot of references to pop culture. The Beatles and Jim Henson tribute comics are a must see.

Awful Library Books proves that not all books are for the academic and smartsy type people.

Hyperbole and a Half is a blog full of new product ideas, market strategies, a spaghetti noodle with a speech impediment and the childhood stories of the author. Also, a wonderful post about Cake Vs Pie (Pie is the winner by far).

Cracked is hit or miss. Some articles are geninuely hilarious, others not so much. The biggest highlight is Wednesday for their lame version of a photoshop contest.

Don We Now Our Gay Apparel highlights the colourful wardrobe of the Canadian National Treasure, Don Cherry. This blog is only active and valid during hockey season.

Nerdy Sites

Nerdy sites and humor sites go hand and hand. A lot of these sites are actually really funny as well, but are more geared towards nerdy persuits!

Topless Robot is my favourite stop for nerd news. With weekly contests, daily lists, apparel, and Fan Fiction Friday, it is one of my staple sites throughout the day.

Superdickery reminds us that Super Man, and other comic book heroes are, indeed, dicks. It also showcases some strange, and non sensical comic book covers.

Epbot is a blog by the wonderful blogger who brings us Cake Wrecks except this blog is all about her geeky pursuits.

Kindertrauma reminds you of all the movies that scared the hell out of you as a kid.

The Great Showdowns are drawings of the showdowns faced in a movie. Very witty!

College Misery is a newer blog that stemmed from Rate Your Students, where professors laid down the smack to their students. A lot of it is about academic complaints, but every once and awhile it has some great rants.

Great White Snark is another website for nerd news.

Nimoy Sunset Pie is exactly that.

Girly Pursuits

These are sites that are read by both men and women, but tend to be geared more towards women.

is a blog site with interesting news stories and encourages discussion. A lot of topics are women orientated.

has step by step receipes for baking delicious desserts. I haven't tried one yet but I will... one day!


I couldn't really think of a category for these!

Sociological Images is a thought provoking site that explores gender and race construct in images we see everyday.

Escape To The Movies With Movie Bob is one of the places I go for movie reviews. Other than Rotten Tomatoes.
