The Fun Friday Edition of the UX Daily – The Best of the UX Web

It’s nearly the weekend for most of us and that means we’d like you to take it easy today and enjoy some of the best content from around the UX web for cool designs and gently belly laughs. Not every day needs to be serious and today’s the exception – just have some fun with the best of the UX web:

CSS Puns and Jokes



Yeah, scripting languages aren’t known for their humour potential but the folks at Speckboy Design Magazine have still managed to find a way to turn CSS into comedy. We very much like this and we hope you will too:

“Most web design languages tend to be quite sober. We can’t help that; we’re very serious about what we do. HTML. PHP. JavaScript. Not even a little smile from them. But when it comes to CSS, things can be quite different. Things can be hilarious!

Have you seen those CSS pun posts on Reddit and Designer News recently? They were brilliant. And they just got better. Saijo George has recently taken all of those CSS puns and visually recreated them onto a standalone site that you can browse through until you fall over laughing!”

Get all the jokes here at SpeckyBoy.
