Real Original Humor Blog

I like reading humor blogs. Mainly because I like being funny and I like reading things from other people who like being funny.

On my reader, one of my set tags is actually humor. I just click that and read the latest posts that are tagged ‘humor’.

Except.. a lot of the “humor” are really just funny pictures copied and pasted from Google. I mean.. if one were to write a funny post and then put in a picture that relates.. that would be creative.

But just pasting someone else’s picture and writing “Check this out, this is hilarious”, is kind of lame. 

I mean sure, the picture’s are hilarious but most of them are common ones that you would see on Instagram or Facebook anyways.

Like that one about the person having a phone call conversation in the bathroom stall and the guy in the next door stall starts answering all his questions thinking the two of them are having a conversation.

Seriously, if I had a dollar for every time I saw that one, I could buy myself a smart phone by now.

  1. I agree completely. This isn’t a site where you just share something someone else created (unless you’re going to be discussing it). I I feel like WordPress is a place where people should be producing their own material.

      It is, isn’t it? I mean, if it’s photography- fine. But make sure it YOUR photo’s. There’s really no point in simply copying pictures off of Google.

      • And if you’re going to copy pictures off of Google, at least let it be because of a piece you’re writing something about. Don’t just let someone else’s picture be your piece.

        Right? I mean I add in some pictures from Google sometimes, particularly when I’m feeling ‘creative’. But I look for something after I’ve already written my piece. Something that matches.

        Some people just post a funny gif or meme and go: “Here’s someone else’s work? Isn’t it funny?”

      • Yeah, that’s ridiculous. If I were the person making these funny images, I would probably be pretty upset about other people getting traffic because of my work. At least give credit where credit is due.

        You know, that’s actually something people do on social networks for followers. Everybody’s like “Oh my god, there so funny! Let’s follow them!”

        Meanwhile it’s someone else’s joke. Nice.

      • I’ve seen pages like that. It’s actually why I deleted my Tumblr. It was just a ton of people gaining followers for posting cool things from other people. Very depressing.

      • juddin97 says:

        Really? I never even made a Tumblr. Actually, I think I did once a long time ago, but I forgot the password.

        Anyways, it seems like everyone’s just desperate for followers these days. Meanwhile, I’m not even sure how many followers I have on here.

      • I agree. I don’t know how many followers I have either! Haha. I’m following you, so you have at least one. I never even realized that I have no idea how many followers I have. Well, at least we can be counted on for original content!

      • juddin97 says:

        Haha, well I’m following you, so you have at least one 😉

        And I agree, that’s what counts- having original content 🙂

      • Nice! Haha. Exactly. See, we are defining cool blogger people. 🙂
