<firstimage=”//static.makeuseof.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/workfood.jpg”>When you work a lot on the computer, you come face to face with the desktop several times a day. The most important is first thing in the morning, when you start up your computer for the day, to check your email and read a few of your favorite blogs.
There are few greater opportunities to get your mood off to a good start every day than the appearance of a really funny image or quote. With your coffee perched up to your lips, you’ll find yourself chuckling, and the entire mood of the morning has changed – you have a smile on your face before the coffee even reached your blood stream.
In order to promote those positive vibes that’ll get your days off to a good start, I’d like to offer up eight free wallpaper sites I found that offer the best funny wallpapers for your desktop that you’ll find anywhere. Browse through the listings on these websites, pick and install the wallpaper that suits your personality and sense of humor, and get ready to smile every time you boot up your computer, or otherwise catch a glimpse of your computer desktop.
Top 8 Funny Computer Wallpaper Sites
Of all of the sites that I reviewed, I’m going to start with my favorite, because I actually decided to use one of the funny computer wallpapers that I discovered there. This site is. Unlike most of the other websites I’ll be covering, this site only has five pages of wallpapers, rather than dozens. However, these select wallpapers really are the cream of the crop. They are high quality images that are both original or from movies that you’re sure to recognize.
As you can see in the image above, there’s the crazy squirrel from the movie Ice Age, from the scene just before he falls off a cliff. The site also has a lot of cool 3D artwork wallpapers, such as the one I installed – 3 aliens trying to figure out a human toilet.
Be aware that a few of the images on this site (and a few others I’m covering) may figure some risque images, so if you have kids in the household, obviously steer clear of those.
The next awesome funny computer wallpaper website is Desktop Nexus. This site has over a thousand choices in the funny category, and all of them are high quality and very humorous. If both quality and volume of choices are important to you, then this site belongs at the very top of the list.
Next up is a site called Tutorial Lounge, which you wouldn’t expect to feature anything like computer graphics, but in fact it easily makes the list of the funniest with a review of the 35 most creative funny cartoon wallpapers on the web. If you want a quick review of the best of the best, rather than sifting through hundreds of options, then this list is a must see.
Another site that offers an impressive assortment of some of the highest quality wallpapers around is Zastavki. The “funny wallpapers” section of this site is just chock filled with some of the coolest photography and imagery that would make for some head-turning desktop backgrounds.
If you’ve never heard of the site TrueWhisper [No longer available], its logo is that it’s a “Resource for Priceless Words.” The site lives up to its name in the funny wallpaper section. While these are a little unique from most other sites, because the humor is built around a certain phrase or quote, the humor certainly isn’t lacking.
Yet another source of high quality, funny computer wallpapers is. There are only a couple dozen choices at this site, but every one of them is one of the most well-made desktops you’ll find. I highly recommend “A Seriously Armed Chick”, “Angry Squirrel”, and my personal favorite, “404 Desktop Not Found.”
For animal lovers, I highly recommend checking out Wallpapers Library. The majority of wallpapers in the “funny” section of this site are definitely focused on humorous animal photos. While I’m not usually a fan of animal humor, I had to admit that I laughed pretty hard when I saw a few of these – like this one, for example.
Finally, another good collection that deserves mention is 3Gold. They are more for people who like “cartoonish” images for humor, but there is a decent variety of great backgrounds to choose from if you weren’t able to find something from any of the other sites.
So, go through these sites and pick out your favorite – I’d love to hear which funny desktop background you like the best. Do you know of any other awesome collections of funny background images? Share your own resources in the comments below.
