look up any word, like bukkake:
 
1.
A comedy website run by Rich "Lowtax" Kyanka which is known for being the last bastion of completely irreverent humor. I mean, come on, face it, anything can be funny if you look at it the right way. Remember - tragedies kill people, laughing at tragedies doesn't.

Don't like people who will joke about anything? You don't ever have to visit something awful. No one's going to make you, I promise.
I was totally on the internet yesterday, man. I was over at those forums they got on that something awful, it was some serious business.

www.somethingawful.com
A humor site. (in)Famous for ridiculing nearly everything else on the internet. Features include; daily front page articles, a large forum, 'Photoshop Phriday', and irreverent reviews.

Though everything is a fair game for the 'goons' of SA's humor, members of the furry and livejournal community seem to be prime targets.
"Haha, Something Awful is hilarious!"

"Man, Something Awful pisses me off."

A comedy website that was funny about 6 years ago. Has grown into a sprawling mess of arrogance, petulence and tired pseudo-irony. Still has the occasional gem but more often than not misses the mark with its rambling 'comedy' diatribes and just plain depressing forums.
Inclusion of angsty teenager David Thorpe just demonstrates how low the website has sunk.
Something Awful is no longer funny.

At least it's better than Maddox, right?
Something Awful is a website.

A lame website with even lamer forums. However, if you by any chance like feminazi mods, forum downtime from comically inept script writers, MS paint, pathetic personal e/n stories, fat nerds with neckbeards, extra features that cost money and are usually broken, circle jerk threads, smug, whiny rich kids, unfunny spamboards (BYOB), and people who can't take a joke or laugh at themselves, then this is the forum for you.
Something Awful was cool......back in 2002.

A former comedy website that is now home to Intro to Sociology dropouts who learned everything they know about "progressive" issues from tumblr blogs.

Typical post: ya i dont believe in nationalism because im a soclialist. get me out of this primitive country heh stupid republiKKKans

I visited Something Awful and learned a lot about the patriarchal heterosexistic cis-gender white conspiracy to victim-shame aborted porn stars.

A website which used to be funny, but now only attracts people with poor social skills and a limited abillity to interact with other people. (See also: goon.)

Most of the creativity has been sucked out of Something Awful by the repetitive use of lame catchphrases and wanksters who vandalize message boards and forums. This is why Something Awful has deservedly gained a reputation for being a haven for pathetic little shitstains and lamers.
Being a comedian is about making other people laugh, not making yourself laugh. No wonder Something Awful can't find the funny anymore.
