The Oatmeal is a great resource for some laughs, especially if you do any web or computer work.
I thought this one was funny:

You know, I'm probably the only member here who makes his living on the web that doesn't have a facebook, twitter or similar account. And I'm thankful that I don't need to!

Phew! I thought I'd see my site there at least once. But, No! I was clear.

I've done all of those, with the exception of flash.

Funny thing about that Web 2.0 stuff. I knew it was a fad. People kept telling me "It needs to be more 'web 2.0'" and I never got it. It was just big buttons and pastel colors. Glad to see someone else making fun of it.

My favorite caption from that comic is:

In order to be an expert at Social Media, first you need to write"social media expert" in your bio on Twitter. After that, you need to tweet a lot and update a Facebook fan page. It's really complicated stuff. You should buy my e-book.

I thought it was very funny, and I'm not even a web guy!

Funny. Matt (Oatmeal) usually creates some pretty funny things. He used to work for SEOmoz a few years back, but he left to do his own thing.

I thought that was funny too. I've run into a lot of self proclaimed social media experts lately. Most of them are legends in their own mind and nowhere else.
