In this new online world, people spend more time giving their opinions through social media than they probably do in real life. And while the internet is often a judgemental and harsh place to be, it’s also a platform for people to share their wit and humor with the world.
Some of the funniest things we’ve seen have actually come not from the post itself, but the comments underneath. To prove it to you, here are 75 times that people’s comments were better than the original post.
1. Trump is really hood, who knew?
For starters, is Trump’s skin tone really classed as a darker shade than former president Obama’s? Secondly, we have to applaud the wit of this person’s comment. Orange, of course, is referring to the color of trump’s (almost certainly fake-tanned) skin.
2. Just a relevant joke
This is police brutality in the right way- a sassy online comment. There are not one but two comments which made us chuckle here. WS Police are soon to be known as the comedy legends.
3. This made me EOOMN -exhale out of my nose-
Isn’t it great to hear about what 13-year-olds are aspiring to be these days? We hope that he isn’t afraid to go out there and chase his dreams. As long as you’re is okay with him being 1% nacho son.
4. I love democracy
Poor Cardi, you either love her or you hate her. In this case, this person clearly isn’t a fan. We’re not convinced that Cardi would be too upset about this.
5. Today, we will only do squats!
This is a joke within a joke, and we think that the joke in the comment actually beats the joke in the actual post. Which one do you prefer? Let’s have a vote.
6. My name’s Karen so yeah
We have to feel for all of the Karens of 2021. 2020 really did do them dirty. Imagine getting prejudiced because of your name? We wonder if all the Karens will ever be able to see the back of the ‘ask to see the manager’ posts.
7. Pew Pew Pew
This joke is a little dark, but unfortunately it’s kind of true. America is known for some great things, but also some not-so-great things. And high school shootings is one of them.
8. Public School teachers next month
We don’t know what film/TV show that this picture was taken from, but it does indeed look like an accurate representation of teaching in 2021, the way things are going. But hold up: they don’t teach cursive anymore? Since when?
9. You might be a dog
In a world full of beautiful people showing only their highlights reel on social media, it’s easy to feel insecure. So jokes about insecurities are something that we can all laugh about. Is there anything wrong with being able to relate to a dog?
10. With that belly, sure we are!
Their granny might not have liked it, but we think this is a pretty hilarious way to celebrate the two of them graduating at the same time. And while the zebra joke might not be totally relevant to the post, there’s no denying that it gave us a giggle.
11. Web designer
If you think about it, spiders really are web designers. But the person who commented is totally right to assume that spiders are the only web designers who want to find bugs. For everyone else, it’s one of the worst case scenarios- but for a spider, it means dinner time.
We’re confused as to why there’s one doctor who thinks that soda is better for a child than water. But if that doctor is in fact Dr. Pepper, then suddenly things make a whole lot more sense. In fact, we think that this should be the answer to the joke.
13. Will you marry me?
We’ll admit that this took a while for us to figure out (it’s nearly Friday, give us a break) but we had a lot of fun in the process. We especially like the cavewoman one. Sometimes, simple humor is the best.
14. One hell of a pun
First of all, we’ve never seen what is essentially a steamrollered wasp before, so that’s pretty cool. But the one benefit to all of this is that he managed to get featured on the track. If you know what we mean.
15. 2020 summed up
This picture makes us feel ashamed to be the human race. Remember that time when it wasn’t possible to get the basic human necessities from the store? It feels like so long ago. But they do say that paper beats rock, so you know…
16. I’m in?
This joke is a little NSFW, but we think that we can get away with it. At 12 centimetres, we’re not sure that you could ever really be in, if you get where we’re coming from. We’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
17. When your milk has a date on Valentines Day and you don’t.
Ahh, Valentines Day, a day for boyfriends and girlfriends all over the world to spoil each other. Unless, of course, your only companion is a bottle of milk. Correction- a spoiled bottle of milk.
18. Joke thieves
There’s nothing worse than having someone repeat your joke and get all the laughs. Especially when that person does it in block capitals in the comments section of your joke. Can this person ever get a break?
19. Venn Diagram
This Venn diagram was getting on a lot of people’s nerves because it wasn’t perfectly filled out. But luckily, one witty commenter had the perfect answer to filling in the blanks. They all fit so perfectly!
20. Wrong Kong
They said Hong Kong, but they pointed to the complete wrong country (don’t ask us where it is, there’s a reason why we’re writers and not weather ladies). And what does the wrong continent equal? Wrong Kong.
21. Moms are worriers
Or in other words, reality vs. what our eyes are screaming at our brain. If he falls it will be balconZ. Well, that one went off the rails. Okay we’ll stop now.
For all you maths lovers/dad joke enthusiasts out there, this set of jokes is perfect for you. Fractions don’t have a point, but on the other hand, you have to draw the line somewhere. If you get what we’re saying.
23. I see what you did there
A parent, or apparent? Since this man’s wife has just recently become a mom, we’d say it’s a bit of both. “Building a body” is a weird way to describe making a child, but whatever floats your boat.
24. He earned that gold
What would possess any mailman to fold a person’s actual degree?? Something that says “DO NOT BEND” in huge letters? At least they have 90 degrees now, instead of just one.
25. Hearing AIDS
The thing is, this wouldn’t honestly work for every situation. What if you went to collect somebody else’s AirPods, only to discover that your dodgy pair were the only ones in there? Then you’ve just cut your regular earbuds for no reason- and you now have no working earbuds.
26. So punny
It looks like a Pokémon symbol, and it’s been created by the base of the fan. Yet somehow, this joke is so witty. How do people come up with stuff like this?
27. I agree
When protesting about the environment, it’s important to make your point heard. Unless, of course, your sign is so small that people can’t read it. No bother, we’ll just enlarge it and print it out in color…
28. A whole lot of jokes
If this doesn’t sum up first world problems, then we don’t know what does. Our generation will forever be known as the username thieves. Something ‘igotnoclevername,’ ‘damntheusername’ and ‘usernameattempt999’ know all too clearly.
29. Cell sea us
There’s nothing we love more than a completely botched spelling attempt, and this has to be one of our favorites. It’s even better when those in the comments section continue on with the joke. Ten the grease in fetter height would actually be pretty cold.
30. Pretty good
This picture made us totally nostalgic for all the Wii games we used to play as a child. Is it any coincidence that nothing has come out since Trump became president? Nothing but a high risk of WWiii.
31. Exhaled hard at this one
Admittedly, we had to google what the infantry meant (forgive us for not being military enthusiasts). Turns out it means “soldiers marching or fighting on foot; foot soldiers collectively.” Now we can laugh about it.
32. Pro-honking virus
Why is it that it seems like if you have a crush on someone, you reduce the chances of actually having a relationship with them? Maybe if we all had a crush on COVID, then it would happily go away. One can only hope.
33. I’m gray
We’re honestly not sure what the context of this meme was, and while it’s humor in its most basic form, sometimes that’s the best way to get an easy laugh. It must have been pretty brave for this gray girl to come out to her parents, but unfortunately, they don’t like her tone.
34. I think Wii can all agree it’s better.
Knives in games consoles? We’re not entirely sure that’s going on here. Whatever it is, they’re playing a dangerous Game Boy.
35. Another covid joke
Dense has more than one meaning, and both have been used perfectly in this situation. If only eradicating COVID was as easy as washing hands and wearing a mask? Some people just don’t get it.
36. Gosh darn
How dare this person’s parents still be happily married? They ruined what could have been a great standup career. Is it too late to get a divorce?
37. When life knocks you down get crack up
Ahh, dyslexia jokes. The lowest of lows, yet still undeniably funny. Does life give you melons, or lemons? That’s a quick way to determine whether you’re dyslexic, or not.
38. Perspective pt 2
Who is coming up with all of these dinosaur jokes, and how are they so darn funny? The irony behind the fossil fuel comment has kept us chuckling for a lot longer than we thought we would. Those poor dinosaurs.
39. At least he found the point
We like the jokes that take a couple of seconds to get the best. You know, the ones that take a while to click. Or if it was a joke about time, we probably wouldn’t clock it at first.
40. We’re gonna see this on a “top 10 pranks gone too far” video in 10 years
Just imagine how terrified you’d be to find what appears to be the remains of a human body behind a wooden board in your house. The T-shirt would be a great addition though, and would probably stop the new inhabitant from calling the police. One would hope.
