Why Don’t You Read The Oatmeal?

oatmealI try to stay as up-to-date as possible on the interwebs, but with the sheer volume of content out there, it isn’t humanly possible to catch EVERYTHING first.

Most of the people I know are the same, with the exception of a few laggards who rely on people sending them content in clipart-heavy emails.

So usually when I’m talking to someone about a badass site on the interwebs that has been up for a few years, they know what I’m talking about, with the notable exception of one of THE best sites on the internet, The Oatmeal.

If you guys don’t read The Oatmeal, you HAVE to sort that shit out right away. Go there now and read EVERYTHING. It beats the shit out of reading this junkyard site – go! Scoot! We can’t be friends until you’ve read everything on that site and can quote it verbatim.



To get you started, here are some of my favourites:

Why Working From Home Is Both Awesome And Horrible

6 Reasons To Ride A Polar Bear To Work

How God Is Managing The 2011 Rapture

Why We Should Be Eating Horses Instead Of Riding Them

6 Reasons Bacon Is Better Than True Love

This isn’t on his site, but it’s his work – The 8 Phases Of Dating

So what, right? The guy draws some funny cartoons, gets a few laughs, big deal, who gives a fuck?

Well, the reason I decided to feature The Oatmeal today is cause yesterday I came across his latest piece on why Nikola Tesla was the greatest geek who ever lived and it blew my mind.

Thing about Matthew Inman (the guy who does basically EVERYTHING on The Oatmeal) is that for all his toilet humour and weirdness, he’s actually a really smart guy who from time to time, makes your brain LEARN SHIT.

Matthew, I hope you don’t sick the pterodactyls on me for stealing this piece dude, but it’s awesome and my readers need to know this shit.

Check it.



Some epic shit right there boys and girls. Some epic sheeit indeed.

Who knew Edison was such a gigantic fuckstickle?! “Don’t talk to me about X-rays, I’m afraid of them.”

Hahahahaha! What a fucking douche-tard.

Other level shit people.

Other. Level. Shit.
