tales from the internet: hyperbole and a half

18 09 2010

just in case you didn’t know… things that don’t make sense are AWESOME. case in point: the total hilarity that is HYPERBOLE AND A HALF!

it always delights my strange little heart to stumble upon some kind of cartoon/flash animation/comic/etc that portrays life the way i see it – over-exaggerated, cartoony, and insane. pretty much. you know, all those weird sound effects that you make, the anime-like expressions you imagine yourself having, the outlandish circumstances you conjure up when you’re going along or talking to your friends.

hyperbole and a half is amazing because it’s about REALITY and how totally whacked off menial things can be. it’s the shiz you don’t even realize you’re doing or feeling until you see a cracked out looking cartoon staring back at you, making you laugh, and pointing to the fact that no matter how different we seem, we’re all going through the same annoying, confusing, torturous, weird crap.

this just makes it funny.
