Every busy day deserves a coffee break (or 6!) and while we can’t always leave our desks and grab a little fresh air, these are some of the sites we enjoy when we have a spare moment!

Know Your Meme

We know all too well the power of the meme. Memes can sometimes appear to take over the Internet. They gradually (or rather quickly) become cultural icons and are reproduced for a variety of purposes. Know Your Meme is the quintessential meme database and cleverly categorises memes across the globe, serving up the best of what’s new in the world of memes. If you ever find us giggling at our screens over a cuppa, we’re probably looking at this site.

The Oatmeal

Toe-curlingly hilarious and sometimes quite poignant, The Oatmeal is the brainchild of Matthew Inman. A comic artist, Matthew takes aim at many aspects of life, in a funny and quirky manner. He’s approached topics including loss, friendships, Facebook and the state of the Internet in general. Matthew cites Gary Larson as one of his biggest influences, and we’ve always loved The Far Side!
