Many people have set up specialty tumblr pages to house categories of images or certain memes. Many of these sites are known for being ridiculous or overly specific, in many cases this adds to the humour such as in the case of the popular Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber site.
Sometimes the specialty topic is so ridiculous it becomes well known solely for that reason such as on the Paula Deen riding things Tumblr.
List of Specialty Tumblrs
Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber

Muppets with people eyes
High quality photoshops of various muppets with human eyes. The affect is creepy and hits right within the uncanny valley.
Paula Deen Riding Things

On Good Morning America Paula was shown some of the images and tells a lovely story about them.

A Tumblr's attempt at being manly.
if you watch it backwards

the daily otter
A new otter picture each day.
A Japanese tumblr of a girl in her 20s and various doorknobs. Interestingly, this site manages to remain safe for work.

Many of these specialty Tumblers are created all the time.
