This is a “just for fun” recommendation, because we all need a break
from time to time.

Several years ago, I started collecting those that made me laugh and
that I found entertaining. I created Forwarded Funnies as a repository
for all that humor, and have been posting a new item from my backlog
roughly every day.
At this writing, Forwarded Funnies has over 1700 items.
Each item is given a rough rating of “G”, “PG”, “R” and “X”,which is roughly corresponding to the movie rating system. By far, the vast majority of the items are rated “PG”, but if you’re easily offended you’ll want to avoid the “R” and “X” categories. The ratings are described in a little more detail on the home page, and there’s separate navigation for each should you just want to browse the “PG items, for example.
There are, of course, RSS feeds, but there’s also email notification, so in a wonderfully ironic twist, you can be notified by email each time a new Forwarded Funnies item is posted. When you sign up for email notification, you can choose whether or not you want to see those “R” and “X” items.
