The Oatmeal contains a ton of comics, stories, and pictures that are sure to catch a laugh. With titles as quirky as “10 Reasons It Would Rule to Date a Unicorn”, “This is Why an Octopus is More Awesome than Your Mom”, and “Five Reasons Why Pigs are More Awesome Than You” it’s not hard to comprehend why millions have already visited the website. You can also take quizzes to find out how many Justin Biebers you could take down in a fight, or if your loved ones are plotting to devour you. If you like dumb jokes it has those too. Yep, The Oatmeal pretty much dominates the Internet.
One man, Matthew Inman, created everything on the site: all of the writing, drawings, and codes. His biography on the website states, “He subsists on a steady diet of crickets and whiskey. He enjoys long walks on the beach, gravity, and breathing heavily through his mouth. His dislikes include scurvy, typhoons, and tapeworm medication.” As you can tell this man cracks jokes better than most people can crack peanuts.
So, if you are bored with your dull and eventless life and want to spice it up a bit, turn on your computer and cook up some good ole’ fashioned Oatmeal.
