Oh, wow, would I be so lucky to get to review two blogs in a row about people living in eastern countries? No, not really. This blog is written by a guy living in the UK â€“ and thatâ€™s pretty much what you get to know about him, since there is no profile, at least not one that can be easily found.
Ummm. Okay. First thing is, itâ€™s under the â€œhumorâ€ category here at theweblogreview.com. Iâ€™m thinkingâ€¦ shouldnâ€™t I be laughing by now or at least grinning? And why is it that Iâ€™m not? I always think it has to do with a cultural gap. But it hasnâ€™t been really a problem in the past. I can totally laugh atâ€¦letâ€™s call them â€œinternational jokesâ€. So, wait, let me read the blog again. Iâ€™ll give another shot at it.
I start checking the categories under which the author posts. They include topics that go from art to look-alikes; they also cover politics and action figures. As I browse around, I get the feeling that most of the stuff here should be funny, but to my taste, it just isnâ€™t appealing. The jokes are there, most of them pictures supposed to make people laugh but Iâ€™m just not laughing. Such a bitter reviewer I am. Actually, no. I laugh quite easily. Itâ€™s just that the author chooses to post easy jokes with visual aids. Not my kind of humor, but it can be *yours*. So donâ€™t be afraid to visit the blog.
I like when entries are organized in categories. The good feeling you have when you go to a library and and wants to read a book; you search for the topic of your interest and tadah!, you find it. In this blog, however, many of the categories are about the same thing: humor. Humor about politics, humor about look-alikes, humor, humor, humor with pictures. So the categorizing technique doesnâ€™t really work for me. Oh, and there are links everywhere. *Everywhere*.
The design is quite simple and effective. It doesnâ€™t compete with the pictures posted. The font is a bit too small for my tired eyes â€“ but then again there isnâ€™t much that actually requires reading.
I guess this blog is just meant to be a collection of supposedly funny pictures. I wouldnâ€™t check it regularly. I get enough â€œfunnyâ€ (and here Iâ€™m using quotes to be sarcastic) through e-mail everyday. Or maybe Iâ€™m just a bitter reviewer with a cold heart.
