70 Hilarious Tumblr Posts From 2016 That Were Funny For No Reason

Fair warning: this post is literally just a gigantic list of some of the funniest Tumblr posts of 2016. Of course, these are only my personal favorites that I have slowly been collecting throughout the year, because to post all of the funniest Tumblr posts would take a very, very long time. I feel like Tumblr reached Peak Tumblr this year, and maybe that’s because there was so much material to work with. These posts about political things that suck and random relatable moments that we all experience but don’t know how to explain will make you laugh over and over again – and some of them can’t even be categorized, because they’re just totally out there. This essentially reads as a tiny replica of a Tumblr dashboard, which personally, I think sounds really fun.

To get a little ~deep for a second, let me just say that I found comfort in Tumblr these past few months. Dealing with all of the horrible political things happening not only in America, but the world, not to mention all of the awful tragedies, has been extremely stressful and upsetting. It’s in those times that I turn to my Tumblr dashboard, where I can take solace in posts that make fun of some of these nightmarish scenarios happening in our government. If I wasn’t able to continuously laugh at these things, I would have turned into a giant ball of anxiety and fear. So, the posts below might sound silly and dumb, but honestly? We all need more reasons to laugh at something stupid right now.

That said, check out these hilarious Tumblr posts from 2016 that are funny for, well, no real reason at all. They just are! Enjoy them, and turn back to this page whenever you need to cheer up.
