Internet's Original Humor Website to Feature Original Productions, NextGen Website Design Concepts and the Best Viral Content from Around the Web to Help You Waste More Time Than Ever!

SAN FRANCISCO, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Established in 1999, eBaum's World is potentially responsible for wasting more hours of productivity than all professional sports leagues combined. As one of the original dedicated humor sites on the internet, eBaum's World helped to pioneer the unique perspective and sense of community that has become the hallmark of internet culture. Blending user submitted content with original productions and popular editorial features such as Monday Morning Randomness and Wayback Whensday, eBaum's World has maintained its position as one of the top 10 humor sites for over a decade.

After more than five years without a significant redesign, the web's oldest humor site was looking kind of, well... old. Well, it was time for a change, and Viumbe has relaunched their flagship site with a dramatic new look and feel. The extensive redesign includes a brand new logo, a slick layout, and a drastically modernized user interface designed to enhance media sharing and discovery of the Web's most popular content..

"eBaum's World has the most active, creative, and loyal fanbase on the Web, some of whom have been with us for over a decade," said Product Manager, Zac Selmon. "Our goal with this redesign was to revitalize the site that our users know and love, while creating a more inviting experience for a new audience eager to experience the best content aggregation the Web has to offer."

To help spread the word about the new look, eBaum's World enlisted the help of Youtube star Boogie2988, whose character, "Francis," is much beloved for his vitriolic rants about internet culture:
