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.

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

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

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.

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.

An internet comedy site. Features Photoshop.. features, mockeries of other forums, movie/game/hentai reviews, email/ICQ pranks, legal battles, Fashion SWAT, Horrors of Porn and Untitled Document among others. Seems to drive certain people on UrbanDictionary insane with loathing. Content fluctuates between mildly funny and comedy gold. Has fairly extensive forums. Also known for the sarcastic phrase 'the internet is serious business'.
Damn, a lot of people bash Something Awful on UrbanDictionary.

An asinine web forum for people who think 80,000+ people getting killed by a tsunami in Sri Lanka is Comedy Gold. They like to post oh-so-HILARIOUS Photoshopped pictures of people getting drowned by tidal waves.

Ha ha ha. I cannot contain my laughter.

Of course, it's not so funny when some pathetic goon's relatives died. Then they offer lame "goondolences" and shit.
Something Awful is for worthless fuckwads. Always has been, always will be.
