/r/Humor; a place for things that bring a wry smile to your face.#### Description

  • New to reddit? click here!

Sit back in your finest leather chair, pop in your gold rimmed monocle, pour yourself a glass of top shelf brandy, and enjoy your stay here at /r/humor.

This is a place for funny things that require a little bit more thought and a longer attention span than over at /r/funny (which is where you should head once you've become raging drunk and switched over to beer).

What we want:

  • Humorous/satirical videos of substance. This can include videos of stand up comedy or comedy sketches. It DOES NOT include memes or most things produced by Dane Cook and Carlos Mencia.
  • Humorous/satirical articles of substance. This can include articles from The Onion, Cracked, and many other humor and satire-based websites along with funny real news stories.
  • Your original content as long as it does not exceed 10% of your posts to Reddit. Exceed that ratio, and our moderator neck beards will begin to furiously itch with anger...and you will be banned.
  • Use titles that describe what will be seen when the link is clicked. Posts with titles like "This is the funniest thing I've ever seen." or other editorialized titles will be removed.

What we don't want:

  • Memes, Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter.
  • Self posted jokes.
  • Videos of commercials.
  • Images of text.
  • One-off funny images.
  • Link shorteners or redirectors, or ALL CAPS.


  • Use NSFW tags.
  • Post political humor and cartoons to /r/politicalhumor.
  • Post comics to /r/comics or /r/webcomics.
  • Posts are subject to minimum account age and karma requirements.

  • /r/NotTheOnion For stories so mind-blowingly ridiculous that you could have sworn it was an Onion article.
