We may have lost Yahoo Answers, but there are still places to find unintentionally hilarious stuff on the Internet. Quora is the obvious next best thing, but I think wikiHow gives ’em a run for their money. Quora seems to be filled mostly with a healthy combination of illiterates, nerds, and narcissists asking stupid questions and giving bad advice. wikiHow, on the other hand, is a place where “experts” give advice unprompted. And this advice is often, in turn, paired with some seriously weird and weirdly compelling illustrations.
The site has been around for almost twenty years, which means a whole lot of how-tos have been written and illustrated. Any site with that sort of longevity makes a mark, and wikiHow has clearly done that. We measure this success by the number of memes that have been inspired by the illustrations. There’s an entire subreddit, r/disneyvacation, dedicated to captioning the bonkers images. This renders them into memes, and you know we’re here for that sh*t. We hope you are too.
