Never in my life have I felt so unfun as I did while compiling this list. There’s nothing that grosses you out faster than someone pulling out their phone to show you something “funny” they have seen on the internet, leading you into the longest three minutes of your life.

And somehow, despite knowing this, here I am, desperately hoping you’ll laugh and think I’m cool. Look, I’m not in the business of being funny. I make music. And that’s the excuse I’ll stick to if nothing on this list appeals to you. But if you are feeling frisky, let me pull out my proverbial phone and show you a thing or two.

The funniest Things displayed on the internet can be understood by having a look at this.
