Today I’m putting up the links to two funny websites made up entirely of things that people just stumble upon.
The first is Found Magazine, the web version of the print magazine that collects things that people find: “love letters, birthday cards, kids’ homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, doodles- anything that gives a glimpse into someone else’s life. Anything goes.” The home page features the “Find of the Day” and you may set it up as an RSS feed to inject a little bit of humor into your daily routine or you may just click through the archives. Sadly their audio finds section is gone so you won’t be able to listen to Avon Minisure or the Ypsilanti All-Stars.
Next, there’s Overheard in New York consisting entirely of weird and silly things people say in public places. This is the flagship website which has spawned Overheard at the Office, Overheard at the Beach, and Overheard Everywhere (for people outside of New York). Just as a warning to the sensitive the language on these site can be rather impolite, but then again nothing worse than what you hear walking down the street.
On the other hand, if you like salty language, you’ll appreciate How to Swear in Any Language.
