    I’m not sure if there is a component of agism or racism in this – but chinatown pretty is an inspiring account…maybe I miss why this would be funny.

  3. Sinduja says...

    Hi, I’m Sinduja from India, loving your work! One instagram feed I’ve been loving lately is Alicia Souza (https://www.instagram.com/aliciasouza/?hl=en). She makes amazing doodles and comics, you might like it as well.

  4. Charlotte says...

    Hello! Native San Franciscan who grew up with a “Dr. Seuss Tree” in front of her house (except I have always called it a poodle tree). Thank you for introducing that Instagram account. I have spent more time than I care to admit looking for my family’s tree in her feed. Loved seeing some familiar places.

  5. Jill says...

    Don’t miss @tragicdenim — hilarious missteps in denim / jeans / fashion.

  6. Lauren says...

    loving @chillwildlife – brings a daily smile!

  7. The account @eesmustwash is all “employees must wash hands” signs in NYC bathrooms. It’s a treat for design lovers and a nice peak inside some of the cities best restaurants…bathrooms!

  8. Thanks! Love finding new follows for Instagram! I love this one: @babyandthebody. A mom juxtaposes her toddler son with her model brother in exactly the same outfits and poses. Too cute.

  9. VP says...

    Love the feminist one! I also recommend the_indian_feminist and anumation (kickass girl-power Indian animations)!

  10. I thought you’re not allowed to take drone photos in NY! Are they licensed or taken from helicopters? Really excited to follow History Cool Kids!!

  11. KirbyJenner- the other Jenner/Kardashian sibling. Hilarious.

  12. Alice says...

    I mentioned this last time you did an Instagram post but she’s amazing so I HIGHLY recommend @disastersofathirtysomething who just got back to the UK after a year of travelling the world with her husband and who takes great photos and writes hilarious Peak and Pit of the day posts. Definitely give her a follow!!

    • Mandy says...

      Hilarious! thanks for the recommendation very funny refreshing feed ???

  13. Laura C. says...

    My dearest Jo, you know that I love you, but “I want that bob, above!” – – > blah blah blah, you always say you want to take some hair risks – just do it darling! I’m sure you will look lovely with that little pretty face that you already have ?
    Next month too post: Joanna’s new haircut, I can visualise it…
    Xoxo

    • sasha says...

      An alternative view, embrace your signature style Jo, and everyone else too.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      oh haha that was actually stella writing that! she cut her hair to just below her shoulders and it looks SO CUTE, now maybe she will go shorter.

      but thank you laura — maybe i will too, ha!

  14. @itsapeeling cracks me up! An account of tossed banana peels mostly seen on the sidewalks and streets of Oslo, Norway. Silly, weird and somehow also beautiful.

  15. Catherine says...

    I love @accidentallywesanderson; not funny but beautiful places around the world, with nice history comments.

  16. Lauren says...

    My friend Kate’s instagram consistently cracks me up. She pairs pretty pictures with bitingly sarcastic lists about her life. I want her to write a book. https://www.instagram.com/kate_wildman

  17. Bec says...

    Oh no I can’t stand seeing dirty discarded cups in stores! Are people really so lazy they can’t find a bin?!

  18. SR says...

    I always joke that I’m going to start an Instagram account for all of the random stuff you find at Target where someone clearly made a choice to swap the item, such as when you find a pair of underwear in the book section. (Someone made a choice!) Ha!

    • Angela says...

      Yes, just this evening I came across a pair of girls athletic shorts next to a discarded Chick fil a fruit cup in…drum roll please…the diaper aisle.

  19. Molly says...

    Omg Joanna at first I zeroed in on the dude with bowl cut (from the Hair Historians IG) & was like “that would be a helluva change!” But then I noticed the bob above him & it all made sense! ?

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      hahaha

  20. Brooke says...

    @pamlovesferrariboys is the BEST account and so hilarious. My favorite humor. It features Pam, a french bulldog who lives with her mom (@napkinapocalypse), dad (@sealtooth) who was a v well known professional surfer, human brother and twin sisters as well as pigeons and chickens. It’s all from Pam’s point of view and she makes merch (@pamwear). Her yorkie uncle (@uncleripley) sometimes comes over and she’s not into him. Pam has the BEST VOICE… I laugh every time.

  21. b says...

    My friend @connect_kg includes pictures of “sad, hilarious umbrellas” found in NYC on her Instagram. The “SHU”s are abandoned and often flipped inside out–and so hilarious.

  22. Katie says...

    https://www.instagram.com/tsa
    Whomever is running the official TSA (airport security) insta is hilarious! They chronicle ridiculous and scary items people try to bring thru, answer travelers questions and do little biographies of the doggies that work at our airports.

    • Carrie says...

      Yes! It’s so random, but I love this one!

    • Katie says...

      This might be my favorite new account I found from these comments. And bonus is that it’s actually pretty helpful!

  23. carolyn says...

    Hi! Just wanted to let you know you’re missing a word in this: “really us laugh every time.” Thanks for being the best blog out there. xoxo

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      thank you, carolyn!

  24. demi says...

    @chainedstill

    hilarious account of people doing whatever it takes to get a phone charge

  25. Stephanie Henry says...

    I really love @wethepeopledc. Different DC residents hold the handle each day. You get to see Washington through so many different perspectives, and I always enjoy peeking into the lives of everyday people. Highly recommend!

  26. RK says...

    Not really a funny account, but I’m really into Sylwia Makaris https://www.instagram.com/sylwiamakris/ she styles people to look like old masters paintings. The detail is unreal.

    • Molly says...

      This is so cool – thanks for the suggestion!

  27. Rachel rednkr says...

    @lolabarksdale..the sassiest little French Bulldog

  28. Noelle says...

    The Cups of Target insta makes me think Target might need more trash cans placed strategically around the store :D

    • Robin says...

      Such a great piece.

    • Sylvia says...

      Oh i second everyoutfitonsatc, not only because of the actual outfits but mainly for highlighting why we all should be Mirandas and even better they invented #wokecharlotte and let her respond what should have been said in all of the moments you didnt even realize were going awfully wrong.

  29. rayna says...

    two incredibly talented young female artists (who happen to be sisters) – maya.brodsky and dinabrodsky

  30. Lee says...

    Thejealouscurator is a favorite of mine. She’s introduced me to so many new and interesting artists. Also, Traceellisross is killing it stylewise right now. I am inspired by her fearless and fun approach to fashion and style.

    • Lisa says...

      Totally. I have such a girl crush on her

    • Angie says...

      OMG — I just spent way too long going through the photos on http://www.instagram.com/hotdudesreading — why do I never see anything like this in real life??? Thanks for sharing!

  31. Anna says...

    Hot Dudes Reading (@hotdudesreading) is a fave! The manager of the account takes pictures of guys reading on public transportation and shares the shots with captions that’ll make you blush. Their account gives me hope that my dream guy (handsome and well-read) is out there and waiting on public transportation for me!

  32. Meg says...

    Ooo, following Female Collective now!

  33. Elisabeth says...

    These are great! History of Overplucking is my current favorite. Any of us who were teens in the 90s/00s will die over the memories (and mourn our own brows, which never fully grew back, let’s be honest).
