16 Best 9gag Alternatives

Updated on May 11, 2015
Source

9gag has long been a popular humor site on the Internet with millions of daily users. However, there are many other humor sites that are just as funny and awesome that people just don't know about.

Here are some of my personal favorites among humor websites. There are also some really hilarious Instagram and Vine accounts that I've added here if you want more funny photos and videos. In making this list, I tried to feature sites that are similar to 9gag, as well as ones that have a lot of picture or video content, both user-uploaded and not.

Since humor is changing all the time, I'm sure this list will be outdated as soon as I publish it. Feel free to put some of your own favorite places to go for laughs in the comment section.

Note: For the major websites, I also added where you can find them on social media and made a note if they had an app or not. You'll want to do your own research on whether or not the app is worth downloading, however. Some of the sites had social media accounts that were inactive. In those cases, I didn't post the link.

What do you search for the most?

Thanks to its gigantic community, reddit is likely the undisputed king of humor on the Internet. Here are some of the best subreddits for hilarious photos, gifs, memes, and other kinds of hahas.

Of course, here it is. Your garden-variety funny. Each hour brings new gifs, memes, photos, and other hilarities right to your nose.

Though not exclusively funny, this is your best source for the most beautiful, arresting, and/or hilarious pictures on the Internet at this moment. They might not make you laugh, but they will definitely distract you from what you should be doing.

Possibly the best thing since . . . well, lots of things, gifs are snippets of experience that can make you laugh, cry, or wonder what it all means. Check out the never-ending stream of new gif greatness in this subreddit.

Called "the only good sub [reddit]," this is a treasure trove of often-hilarious images, gifs, and videos, all portraying a part of the human soul.

See above, except with only cats.

See above the above, except with only dogs.

Often (too often) words are not enough to communicate exactly what's going on. If you're always looking for new ways to portray exactly how you feel when you go to get some milk and find out that your roommate has drank it all, this subreddit will give you some ideas.

Out of the depths of time, there arose a man so powerful, history is still trying to understand his impact on history and our future. This man is Nicolas Cage, and this subreddit is devoted to the endless worship of the Lord and Savior of millions.

For the latest in meme-ification.

All content on Reddit is user-generated, so you can join the funny too if you log into your reddit account. Be sure to follow the rules of each subreddit since they are each independently moderated and have different guidelines.
