33 Things That Are Insanely Satisfying (That Shouldn't Be)

We're making memes smarter. So can you. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get started.

There are entire businesses dedicated to transporting people into a state of pure joy. And the hilarious irony of that is, it's often the dumbest, most mundane things that bring us the most happiness. Bubble wrap. Peeling the plastic off a new smartphone. We asked readers for their best examples of mundane things that are disproportionately satisfying.

This contest was suggested by PJ7, whose memes send a frisson of joy up our spines.
