If you’re not interested in the concept of a funny Facebook status, then please turn away now! I have been without the blue monster for so long that I’m craving some humour and some chat…help me!

funny facebook status

Some of you may know, and some of you may not know, but this site runs on the blood of Facebook. I got my first ‘hit’ internet article (that sounds so strange) writing about Facebook emoticons, and I feel like I owe a lot to the company in that it gave me the opportunity to talk to loads of people about different technology subjects (usually which I know nothing about).

Well today, that’s different – I’m going to write a bit about a new phenomenon which is sweeping the internet – the funny Facebook status. Let me preface this with a comment, I’m not claiming to be reinventing the wheel here, but I’m going to give you a list of some of the most amusing, cool, funny (and some downright hilarious) funny Facebook statuses out there right now. Some involve irony, some involve special characters and symbols, and some just include a straight up joke. Let’s check some out…

Dalan is colour blind and thinks trying to solve a Rubik’s cube is pretty difficult…

Ok, let’s just admit it right off the bat, making fun of blind people (wait…colour blind isn’t really blind!) is not cool or clever (but it might make a couple of people laugh just a little bit).

Ok I don’t think I have ever seen something as cool as this! All of the words are actually upside down! I think I saw a post about how to write characters upside down on someone else’s blog a few weeks ago, but right now all I can say is HAHAHA!

Jyrki is uploading a virus ████████████ 83%

I remember on MSN a few years ago there was one of those ‘sets of three’ emoticons which had an ‘uploading virus to you now’ thing on it. Made people crap themselves thinking that they would be infested with viruses soon! Now you can do it in your Facebook status – and you KNOW that there are fifty girls on your list who will message you asking if it’s for real…

We’ve all done it, so why not share it! I actually haven’t cleaned my keyboard in months and it’s full of dirt and little hairs (no, not THAT type of hairs!).

Why don’t aliens eat clowns? Because they taste funny.

I have a colleague at work who is obsessed with puns, and this is the one I have heard him repeat most. Simple, funny and guaranteed to have people clicking ‘like’ on your status!

Anyway, these are my favourite funny Facebook statuses – let me know if you have any better!


  1. Hey, Oli, did you join the 2009 Shanghai Jazz festival last weekend? I had a very very nice day there. And I met Gcobani and his girlfriend there. You can see the pictures here: http://blur1985.spaces.live.com/

    I found a very great Jazz band Ibrahim Electric and I took a picture with their keyboard! That’s so cool!

  2. Pun-crazy Coworker says: says:

    I do love the odd pun every now and then, especially the first one, the third one, the fifth one…

    No but it turns out the other week I got pulled over for speeding. The cop said he’d be nice and give me one chance to get out of the ticket, all I had to do was think of a good excuse for speeding. I told him last week my wife ran off with a police officer, and when I saw this police car today, I tried to get away, thinking it was the police officer trying to give her back to me. No ticket.

  3. My favourite facebook update ever was:

    “Mike just saw a guy riding a bike”

  4. for fun, try going to lamebook.com – not funny haha, but funny in that’s horribly pathetic and I am glad I am not those people.

  5. I just read a list of ‘the 100 things to do before you die’. I’m pretty surprised ‘yell for help’ wasn’t one of them
