The cheesy articles in this cluster are lame with a side of cheese for sure, but they've gone viral nevertheless. Why? Because they make us laugh.

From cheesy choreographed dances to lame DIY holiday cards, these innovations are comedic glory. I'm a big fan of the hairy chest tank tops myself--what a perfect fashion piece to turn heads at the beach!
