Dare To Laugh
December 27th, 2019 – It’s often said that our society can’t take a joke anymore these days. And while we debate that point regularly, the FOO community has proven that we can still laugh at a lot of things. In 2019, comedians still made jokes, advertisers still approved some bizarre pitches, and the Dalai Lama still handed out wisdom (this time it was about his successor’s level of attractiveness, but whatever).
If your Christmas vacation is becoming a little too Griswold-y for your taste, do a deep dive of the year to see what really made our audience laugh. Then you can explain to grandma what milkshaking and perineum sunning are.
If you’re about to head out for some last-minute shopping and can only do a quick overview, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at our roundup of the funniest posts from this year! And get ready for more laughs in 2020.
