25 Cringeworthy Websites We Love to Hate

by Candice Walsh Jan 5, 2010
We love them because they suck us in and provide endless opportunities for laughs, disgust and amusement. We hate them because they make it difficult for us to get anything else done.

We’re all guilty of taking the occasional break during our work to pull up some of those time-waster websites that bring such pleasure. In fact, the whole reason this article started was because Leigh and I were instant messaging each other to plan a schedule for the following weeks, only to be sidetracked by these glorious and shameless indulgences of Internet fun.

We apologize in advance for the amount of time you’re bound to waste while browsing through these websites, but really, they’re worth a look. You’re welcome.

1. Lamebook – Poking fun at all those wackjobs who use Facebook.

2. Stop Making That Duckface! – You know the look: lips pursed, orange-tanned skin, classic camera pose.

4. People of Wal-Mart – Some people don’t believe in fashion.
