Guardian readers: the funniest things (on the internet) in 2021 – chosen by you! | Social media

Last week Guardian Australia staff shared the things on the internet that made them laugh hardest in the past 12 months. We asked you to reciprocate by sharing your online nuggets and, judging by what you came back with, you jumped at the chance to chuckle at Covid, the climate crisis and limbless croissants.

1. If retail workers said what they really think

2. Tom Cardy does a lot of walking

3. Oh deer

Two nude sunbathers got lost in NSW park after being startedled by a deer, police say – video

The 28 June New South Wales Covid press conference about nude sunbathers frightened by deer and all translated into Australian sign language.

4. The brains behind bird names

Are ornithologists OK? ejjnstn

The funniest thing has got to be the annual outing for the Scary Snowman. While this year’s might not be considered the best, it’s still pretty funny, especially the little jig carried out by many of the victims. nadreck

8. An unenthused Scottish parliament tour guide

One of my 2021 favorites has been Eleanor Morton’s “Craig the Scottish tour guide” – including this one which has been directly responsible for my overuse of the verb “boke”. Aironicus

9. Do not try this at home

I only ask, can you chug a can of sparkling water and not burp? mparker

10. The Kraków croissant ‘creature’

The story and photo of the croissant wedged in a small tree outside a Kraków apartment cracked me up. A woman thought it was an iguana waiting to pounce. Apparently she waited two days before calling for help. Katrianah
