10 Hilarious Tumblrs You Should Be Following

Comedy Lists

Tumblr’s recent buyout from Yahoo! has the internet wondering how the site will change under new management. Will I still be able to see lolcats on my dash? Will anon stay anon? The mind boggles. But before anything changes, if it even does at all, we’ve put together a list of some of the funniest Tumblr accounts (ignoring most meme-based accounts). Add your favorites to the comments section below.

1. The Sock Covers
Famous album covers recreated with some guy’s socks. I don’t know how he gets so precise, but it’s pretty impressive, especially when he inserts socks into the album title (Random Sock Memories by Daft Punk, White Blood Socks by The White Stripes).

2. Suri’s Burn Book
Look out Perez Hilton; there’s a new sassy gossip queen, and she hasn’t even learned to ride a bike yet. Written from the perspective of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s daughter Suri, this blog offers satirical commentary on the era of celebrity kids. Suri’s ghost writer can really dish it out to Suri’s famous “rivals.” The tagline reads: “Just because you don’t have a Ferragamo handbag doesn’t mean you can act like a child (I’m looking at you, Shiloh). And that’s how you get burned by a five-year-old.

3. Mountain Goats Singing The Mountain Goats
Now if only someone could make a video of that goat that yells like a man to the tune of a Mountain Goats song.

4. Ugly Renaissance Babies
Let’s be honest, are babies really that cute? To Renaissance era painters, the answer is a resounding “no.” These babies are super creepy, and, oh God, his eyes won’t stop following me.

5. One Tiny Hand
All it takes is one tiny hand to make a glamorous celebrity look seriously silly.

6. Perez Hamilton
If Perez Hilton had lived in the 16th century, his gossip rag would have looked a little more like this. This clever blog takes events like The Great Boston Fire and The Seven Year’s War and makes them buzzworthy. Hey, maybe it’s a way for the new generation to better understand their history textbook.

7. Garfield Minus Garfield
This early and genius blog simply removes Garfield out of Garfield cartoons, and the result is surprisingly existential. As creator Dan Walsh says in the site description: “It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.”

8. Emceez Ansari
Comedian Aziz Ansari gets edited onto famous rap albums. Something tells me I would like Goblin by Tyler, The Creator even more with Parks and Rec’s Tom Haverford offering a verse here and there.

9. People Who
Every horrible action committed by, you know, that guy, now cataloged into a perfectly summarized statement. Need to blow off some steam because that jerk who took the last cup of coffee without refilling the pot…again? People Who will understand.

10. Birds With Arms
Okay, so this one is a little meme-y, but who can resist a weight-lifting pelican?
