Greetings, and happy Monday! Spring is in full-swing and for Southern California residents it almost feels like summer. The birds are chirping, drinkers are binging, lovers are loving, and here at Wpromote, business is booming.

That being said, today I’d like to take a break from all the serious reporting on important topics like Google’s ongoing legal battles with the news media, YouTube’s move to create a Hulu for music, and the upcoming reveal of Facebook’s new ToS.

Instead, I’d like to share with you 3 sites I visit from time to time when I need a good laugh, comedic inspiration, or simply want to put things in proper perspective. Here we go.

1 – Overheard In New York

Not for the easily offended, Overheard in New York takes jabs at everyone from co-eds @ Columbia with a serious lack of perspective to Downtown girls who wear little in the way of clothing. With off-color quips from tired moms, snooty professors, and bawdy hipsters, Overheard In New York takes eavesdropping to an art form.

2 – Best Tweets

Not everyone on Twitter is a comic genius. Some use the microblogging service to chat with family and friends and others use it to market their business and connect with customers. Still, there are a chosen few who have mastered comic tweeting, consistently hitting the Twitterverse with choice turns of phrases that are both hysterical and thought-provoking. Discover these nuggets of wisdom at Best Tweets, and be prepared to laugh out loud.

3 – Gawker.com

I realize everyone knows Gawker, but the Manhattan-based gossip and news site is funny, and it deserves to be on this list. While Gawker’s trademark snark borders on the verge of overkill, you can bet on the site for at least one editorial slam-dunk everyday. Whether reporting on fluff like LiLo’s breakup or tech-related tidbits like Eric Schmidt’s advice to the world, Gawker is sure to entertain the culture monger in all of us.

I hope you enjoyed this list of 3 comedy sites. Now get back to work!

    I am a robot. This is a PC comment. This is a boring comment. This is a comment suitable for Wpromote.


  5. Mike Block says:

    Agreed, and Jesse is right, Gawker’s Valleywag is as good for laughs as it is for information about the tech/marketing community. I read it as religiously as SearchEngineLand.com, TechCrunch and Wired.com. By the way, read those too!

    I’ve been following Overheard In New York for a while now… good stuff! I’ve played with the idea of creating Overheard In Hermosa Beach… Imagine! Now thaaat, would be some interesting material! Columbia students? Pssh, got nothing on HB!

    Although I’ve definitely heard of Gawker and visited the site before, this is the first time I checked out Overheard in New York. Hilarious… I definitely think i’ll be heading back for more!
