Ah, the daily grind. We all dread it. Luckily, there are more ways than ever (thanks to technology) to goof off at work.

Better yet, the Huffington Post has put together a list of seven sites that will easily help you whittle down the hours of an otherwise boring day at work (not for me personally, of course...I never procrastinate at work...ever. I only spent 12 hours on the following sites so I could write this blog...it's called research and junk).

So forget that looming deadline and boss breathing down your neck and go check out:

Bread People, which takes celebrity faces and morphs them with various kinds of bread products (for example, their most recent creation was 2 Live Crouton, combining, what else? 2 Live Crew and Croutons). http://breadpeople.tumblr.com/

Please Fire Me is a sort of FML, where people can rant about their jobs. The latest entry? "Please fire me. My co-worker decided to state after watching a gangland movie the night before that she didn’t want to join a gang because she didn’t want to be killed by, “a thug, heroin usin’, gun wieldin’, black man or Mexican!” Then she clarified, “I don’t want to be prejudice." http://pleasefireme.com/

What do you get when you combine funny photos of owls with even funnier captions? Hungover Owls. http://hungoverowls.tumblr.com/

A teacher strikes back. Middle School Proverbs is a hilarious blog by a frustrated teacher dealing with today's middle school students. (Excerpt: "After accidentally writing on his own hand, a student asked me the following question: “Mister Karabekian, is it true that permanent marker never comes off your skin, for the rest of your life?”). http://middleschoolproverbs.wordpress.com/

Privilege Denying Dude takes a witty and snarky view at the "usually middle-upper class heterosexual white males defending the idea that individuals are solely responsible for their own fate, opportunity exists in a vacuum, and America is the land of the free -- all while ignoring the indirect and direct advantages they experience each and every day." (Example: "Why should I take women's studies? What about men's studies?"). http://privilegedenyingdude.tumblr.com/
