My Next Shopping Trip

And yet another reason I love The Chive.

Between the article on the left here, Operation Stock Photo Swap (yes, as good as it sounds) and the angry goose (even better than it sounds – I was rolling) there’s nothing but good times to be had.

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.

The Chive: Safe For Work

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:

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.

Being Motivated

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.
