If you’re like me and you spend a large chunk of your day in front of a computer, you probably enjoy wasting some of that time on the internet.

Here are my top eight favourite guilty pleasure time-wasting websites, in no particular order.  Keep in mind that I’ve use the word WASTING, which means these aren’t how to make yourself a better person sites that will teach you skills and give you knowledge.  These are time-wasting websites that will make you laugh.  Got any to add?


The Oatmeal

Created by Matthew Inman a.k.a. “The Oatmeal,” is a humour website. His content is mostly focused around taking very relatable life situations and exaggerating them in a comical way.


Fail Blog

The FAIL blog has been around for much longer than a lot of these other sites have, and thanks to its great content, it’s still going strong. It’s a site that is most known for its humorous pictures depicting disastrous and often stupid situations.



Imgur describes itself as “the home to the web’s most popular image content, curated in real time by a dedicated community through commenting, voting and sharing.”  It’s basically a collection of the most popular random content on the internet, and it’s very entertaining.


Damn You Autocorrect

Damn You Auto Correct features tons of funny texts between people who experience all the communicational problems that come with auto correct on a mobile device.  I’m not totally convinced they’re all legit, but I have actually laughed out loud while perusing this site.


Awkward Family Photos

From terrible hairdos and outfits to costume-themed family portraits, it’s no surprise that this site is such a huge hit on the Internet.


Buzz Feed

BuzzFeed is one of the top sources to discover new viral videos, Internet memes, fun articles and anything else that’s popular on the web.


This is a site that takes photos from all over the world of signs or product packaging that have humorous spelling and grammatical mistakes, or just convey an entirely different message due to translation errors and an extreme unfamiliarity with the English language.
