Imgur is, by far, the greatest procrastination site on the Internet, where you share and rate images and GIFs. With content uploaded everyday, where you can spend your life mindlessly laughing and reading, it's just the greatest. It is often compared to Reddit, but just solely with images.

Imgur's comment section is usually hilarious, until you get to the comment section that says "Bad comments"

These comments have more down votes than up votes, and are usually hate, spam, ect.
Bro 1: Argh man, this studying is so boring!

Bro 1: Ok *click* Wow!

Bro 2: Can I watch with you?

Bro 1: Yep

*Both randomly puke rainbows*

Like Reddit, 4chan and 9gag, it's a website full of idiots and probably isn't worth your time.
Person 1: Did you check out that funny new meme on imgur?

Person 2: Go away.

A website that displays a range of images that contain memes, cats, dogs, stupid people, political statements, and general asshatery. Acts as a haven for middle-aged, single women obsessed with cats and other "cute" animals; wannabe political activists; and is one giant self-perpetuating circle jerk.

Tries to differentiate itself from Reddit, but no one really cares.
Did you see the new images on Imgur? They're all cat reposts from last month!
by fancypants212 February 09, 2012 (pronounced imager) is a popular photo sharing website closely tied to reddit. It is very convenient to upload and share, in contrast to other services like tinypic and imageshack (which are still easy, just not as convenient). Employs a very similar system to reddit with upvotes and downvotes, and jokingly it has been said that it's changing into "animal planet" with various photos of cute animals like cats. Most reddit picture submissions are uploaded using either imgur or quickmeme. The difference in the two is that one is a general purpose image sharing website, and the other is to quickly overlay text on meme photos. Imgur allows comments as well, but the most upvoted are "as a x" and the singing of lyrics to a corresponding picture.
Robin: Golly gee Batman, I sure do love imgur!
Batman: (mumbles incoherently)
Robin: You are darn right! Imgur is super easy to use for images and it's part of reddit! Everyone should use it!

Guy 1: "Dude, what is an Imgur?"
Guy 2: "The same head-up-its-own-arse site as Reddit, but at least you get a funny picture with every inane post"

The simple image sharer, where you go to look at pictures and gifs. of kittens and boobs. If you have homework or a test this is the place to go to fail your class. Imgurians Unite!
Never go on to imgur if you have homework, im
Gonna waste my time looking at cats.
Give up on a social life because unlike reddit we're a family so
You better believe it. Hey everybody look
Up you just got rick rolled.
by Robotemotions February 09, 2012 is a great website full of a variety of images, personal tales, and much more. Upon becoming an active member of this website, one might discover a friendly and welcoming community of people from all over the world who are unique, witty and occasionally attractive. A lot of's content comes from a similar website called reddit, who is not always fond of imgur. Imgur welcomes all those cat-friendly and introverted! But fair warning, many find themselves visiting the site more often than they originally expected.
John Smith: "What's that you keep laughing at?"
Jane Doe: "Just the cutest kitten that I've ever seen that someone posted on this website!"
John Smith: "You seem to spend a lot of time on that website. Maybe I should give it a try?"
Jane Doe: "One of us! One of us!"
