Something to brighten up your Monday: The Oatmeal

We all know Mondays are a drag. You haul your ass into work, even if that’s only across the living room into your home-office, fire up your email client and get hit with a deluge of crap – most of it demanding to have something done immediately, or you’re fired. You’re knackered from a weekend of ‘relaxation,’ which in laymen’s terms means busting your gut trying to fix something for someone in your family because, let’s be honest, if you’re reading this you’re more than likely ‘the computer guy’. Sound familiar?

Well fear not dear readers, I’ve got something that’ll bring a little bit of levity to your day, in that dark, irritable humour that fits perfectly with the worst day of the week, and it’s simply called The Oatmeal. It’s a site that most geeks will associate with and displays comics, quizzes and general random funnies from the eccentric mind of Matthew Inman. My personal favourite is the very telling story of the humble, or horrible depending on how you looks at them, printer. Here’s a small snippet:

There are many other hilarious comics including ‘What your email address says about your computer skills’ and of course the ‘What it’s like to own and Apple product‘ to name but a few, so head on over to The Oatmeal and get some laughs before Monday turns you sour for the rest of the week.
