Hey guys! We figured you all would be bored this week with so much time off of work (maybe even cooped up at your parents' place, where their idea of an exciting night is playing Scrabble without the Scrabble dictionary, like a couple of totally out-of-control loose cannons!), so this week's post is purely meant for your entertainment. Climbing rocks is inherently ridiculous, because there really is no point, and we know that. That's probably why climbers as a whole can be so hilarious, and really great at poking fun at ourselves and the sport in general. We've compiled some of our favorite humorous climbing-related Internet content in three different categories: Instagram accounts, blogs and videos! So come kill some time while you wait for your dad to finish retelling the same story he told this morning, yesterday, and the day before that! Instagram accounts:

Climbing blogs / sites
The Stone Mind - For something with a bit more wit, climber Justin Roth's blog has posts that are sometimes a little introspective, but more often-times totally sarcastic.
Semi-Rad - With posts like "Pooping in the Outdoors: A Flow Chart," "The Rules for Dating a Dirtbag," and "The Art and the Joy of Busting Someone's Balls," what's there not to love? Climbing vids
From the Reel Rock Tour 2010, I present Top Rope Tough Guys!
Downhill climbing, for the true purist.
And another winner from Reel Rock 2010, the Roxxx Channel.
Alright, that's it! We hope we were able to briefly entertain you, and get you psyched to get back to climbing, post-holidays!
Have a great Chrismahanukwanzakah, everyone! And we hope you were able to air all your grievances yesterday during Festivus, and win the feats of strength, every time.
