Why we love the Internet

There’s just so much of it, isn’t there?

This internet. What on earth would we do without it? How did we ever live before it? What will we ever do if someone, one day, carelessly switches it off.

Today the internet is an amplification of society – it is central to politics, war, religion, friendship, family, has replaced the photo album and the telephone and is the first place we turn for information on just about everything.

Is there anything the internet can’t do? Well, OK, it can’t boil an egg. But there are 1,675,450 videos on it showing you exactly how to boil one perfectly.

We’re not ashamed to say – we absolutely love the internet. We simply couldn’t be without it. It’s everything good (and bad) about the human race, magnified.

What the internet has done really well is distilled the funniest things out there into a handy, take anywhere, compendium of humour available at the push of a start button on your laptop, smartphone or tablet.

For that, we are eternally grateful. It gives the common man a voice and, yes, it also means everyone is a comedian. But some are infinitely funnier than others.

Here’s some of our favourite funny one-liners sourced from across the hilarity that is the world wide web.
