About this blog


What is this blog about? Take a look and tell me. Who cares? I just like to laugh. Generally, way too much money is being spent worldwide on anti-depression and anti-anxiety medicines. Why so serious? I hereby prescribe everybody a healthy daily dosage of laughter. And the best about this prescription is that I am not charging you anything for it. It does take me about an hour every day to create the blog posts for you however, so I would really appreciate it if you do either of the following things: A) Laugh about my jokes, B) Let me know what you think about my blog, C) Make a donation via PayPal.

So keep in mind: Things Could Be Worse! And remember: Laughter is the best medicine, but if you are laughing without reason, then you need medicine ;)

My Twitter-profile can be found at www.twitter.com/verkoren. As you can see, this blog features a lot of humor. It started out as a mix of all kinds of content, but you have been asking me for more content featuring Humor, Comics, Pranks, Trolls, Tricks, Hacks, Gadgets, Creative AdsAwkwardness, Animated GIFs, FAILs, and Food. So these are the main focus now. For other content, I use different blogs. I still blog about it though.

Please come back to my blog as often as you can as I update it daily with as many new finds as possible, accumulating and linking to as much great content as possible.

Feel free to add me on Facebook.

    This comment is completely out of context, and it’s one which should have been posted a few hours ago (I was busy) but I have ‘nominated’ you for one of those award thingys, which also translates to ‘I promoted your blog to my followers because your posts are awesome.’ Check out the post to see what the deal is. Congratulations and spread the love. Yay

    My dear friend I have nominated you for The Best Moment Award! Congratulations! Please visit this link: transcendingbordersblog.wordpress.com/2013/05/01/the-best-moment-award-3/

    Best of all, it features a sensitive flexing head designed to bend to the contours
    of your face, resulting in a comfortable, close shave.
    Pressing too hard can cause gums to be sore and to recede, which causes
    sensitive teeth. Another really awesome fact about the Sonicare electric toothbrushes is the
    fact that after your charge it, the Sonicare electric toothbrushes can last
    for up to two weeks with being charged again.

    settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to fresh updates and will share this website with my Facebook group.

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers
    and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Have you ever considered writing an ebook or guest authoring
    on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my audience would enjoy your work. If you are even
    remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.
