I just have to give props to this Brazilian website that i’ve been following for years now, it’s called “Pérolas do Orkut,” (pérola means pearl) it’s basically just a website dedicated to posting the ridiculous conversations people have and photos people post to their Orkut accounts (similar to all of those “facebook fail” sites they have now, but it’s funnier because Brazilians are way more shameless with regards to what they will post on the internet).
This site is very typically Brazilian, take a look and you’ll see what I mean: http://www.perolasdoorkut.com.br. If brazilian humor is at its best when Brazilians make fun of themselves, then this site exemplifies the aspects of Brazilian life that people find funny. There is almost a pride to it, which I love. Here are some examples of what you will find on Pérolas do Orkut:
Please comment on this post if you have any thoughts on Brazilian humor or comedy, I would love to hear if you agree or not, or anything else you might have to say!
