What is about? Not much of anything really. Just the things(events) in daily life that, if you are paying attention, you should probably laugh at. Originally the tag line was going to be "I see stupid people." But to be fair, there are plenty of smart doing stupid things. So what you will see here are things that are funny, stupid, odd, or unlikely witnessed in daily life that I, or someone I personally know found amusing.

How do things get chosen for The section above sort of covered this, but I'll go into more depth. Events witnessed directly by me or someone I know, which we (me and the observer) found amusing are added on an as witnessed basis.

I got an email forwarded to me with this really funny picture attached, will you post it? If I don't know you, no and as it was not taken by you, also no. I'm not trying to be harsh, but email chain letters bounce around a lot so the odds of getting something unique are unlikely. Also this site is not meant to be a gaffaw inducing gallery of image after image. If that is what you are looking for, I recommend ebaumsworld, or perhaps College Humor, although probably not at work, as much of those sites could get you fired. Which is another point to the focus of this site. This is not intended as a "Family Friendly" website, but it should and will always be a workplace friendly site. By extension, it should really also be family friendly, but not everyone agrees on what is family friendly.

Can I send you a shakes subject magic eightball (funny news story / shocking story / great joke / outrage) I heard or was emailed? No. Thanks really but that is not what this site is about, and that concept has been done to death. If that's your thing, I would recommend one of the following: Fark!, Drudge Report, the smoking gun, the sites I mention regarding pictures, and this last one is really important if you received an email about some group, law, or activity that completely overwhelms your sensibilities and is a total moral outrage; Snopes.

How you haven't updated in X days? Because I have a 9-5 gig, two kids, and I nor my associates see something worth posting every day. Nor do we always get a photo of it.

Anyhow, I really do hope you enjoy your stay, and if you like what you see, perhaps you might try our sister site Squak! - America's news to squawk at! where perhaps you might see something you enjoy reading.
