And yet another reason I love The Chive.
And yes, The Chive – probably the best site in the world – is safe for work. Let me repeat: The Chive is safe for work. Unless you live in a Communist enclave where humorous things are frowned upon you’re fine. I mean come on – only Hansel and Gretel wouldn’t laugh at this picture.
OK, so I’m doing a quick follow-up on a previous post I did: “Is The Chive Safe For Work“.
Because I discovered something rather, shall we say, surprising last month when I decided to try my luck with the content filters we use here at the office and hit TheChive.com. I was fully expecting the alarm bells to go off and the content police to be banging down my door. It’s not that it’s a bad site (there are no naked women or promises of organ growth). But I’m not sure I’d let my six year-old peruse the site since I’m trying to protect him from real life for as long as I can. After all, we’re talking about a site that has days like:
- Hump Day (Wednesday)
- Burn Your Bra (used to be Tuesdays, now more on Thursday)
- Future Lower Back Problems (Monday)
Tell me that’s not hilarious.
I was glad I was still sitting in the parking lot when I saw this one this afternoon on the DAR (Daily Afternoon Randomness) on the Chive; if I had been drinking or walking or something I would have likely injured myself. And heaven knows I don’t need any help injuring myself – I have a natural talent of being able to do that.
I absolutely love the Chive.
It’s funny. It’s beautiful. It’s motivational. It’s entertaining. It’s mind-blowing. It’s probably the best site in the world (that’s their tag line…and pretty dang accurate). Thus far this week it’s been a cottage in the Himalayan mountains, famous brands transposed on condoms, ridiculous signs, cats wearing hats and smuggling hummingbirds. And that’s just five posts out of bunches that appear every day.
I love The Chive.
I love it so much I’m sure people think somehow I’m financially-linked to how many hits they get. Not so – it’s just such an awesome site that I can’t help but love it. And so I write about it.
So on Tuesday I was cruising through it and I ran across a post entitled “A little inspiration goes a long way“. Now, normally when I see a title like that I expect something along the lines of, say, this motivational poster.
But not Tuesday.
