Funny Stories for Anyone Who's a Tumblr Fanatic | 22 Words

Look, I'm a pretty simple woman with pretty simple needs.

All I really want from the Internet is some funny tweets, adorable pictures of dogs (and cats!), and hilarious posts from Tumblr. OK, and maybe some pretty rooms to scroll through on Instagram and Pinterest while I dream about styling my own home someday when I am super rich and have a bunch of free time. Is that too much to ask?

If you desire the same things from your own corner of the Internet, well, I've got good news for you. I found a bunch of great stories that have been posted on Tumblr and collected them all here in one convenient place! Some are sure to make you laugh, while others might make you smile and tear up at how wholesome they are. Ready to read 'em? OK! Let's go!

Tree girl.

I don't even want to think about the stories various families may be telling about me all around the country. I have a hard enough time dealing with the stories my own family tells about me.

Jim Carrey and the Dr. Pepper.

Somehow, this story perfectly encapsulates the very essence of Jim Carrey. Especially the part when he comes back and makes everything right. What a guy!


This would be way less embarrassing if your grandpa was named Harold or George. But it's much funnier this way.

A story in three parts. Two of which maybe made me cry a little bit.

This Tumblr user (Tumblrer?) later posted an update saying he said yes! Isn't love grand?

Most stories you read about the TSA are significantly less wholesome than this one. This one is just plain nice. Or should I say, "just plane nice"? Share this with someone who could use a smile today!
