looking for funny website in French

hi

I'd like to improve my French by reading some funny stuff. I know there is theonion.com in English and also the der-postillon.com in German, can anyone recommend similar web sites in French?

Have your heard of Le canard enchaîné? Is a very famous satirical and sarcastic newspaper in France. There is also Charlie Hebdo.

charliehebdo.fr and lecanardenchaine.fr

Re: looking for funny website in French

My kids, 17 and 20, (who are french) love the site "vie de merde" - lots of little snippets of how life trips you up, usually ending with the predictable punchline.

Canard enchainé is pretty advanced french. It is the french equivalent of the british "Private Eye", but with better investigative journalism, IMHO. Great if you are interested in french politics and scandals, but not much fun if you're not. The fake column by our nearly-ex-President's wife is a good laugh.
