To read whenever you need a laugh
PointsInCase.com is one of several up-and-coming humor websites giving the satirists at The Onion, McSweeney’s, and Reductress a run for their money. “Particularly weird and ambitious,” PointsInCase stands out because it posts dramatic readings of its zany articles.
TheBelladonnaComedy.com publishes work by female writers, and it’s “continually increasing the standards of internet humor” with pieces such as “Congratulations on Your Promotion to the Position of My Boyfriend.”
WeeklyHumorist.com and its active Twitter account create “a real sense of community” among comedy geeks. The site hosts a weekly humor podcast, “as well as the most consistent output of cartoons you’ll find outside The New Yorker.”
TheHardTimes.net mostly parodies punk and nerd subcultures, but the popular site’s writers “find a ton of freedom within the margins they’ve set for themselves.”
