suspends charges is a Brazilian internet site of humorous content. On the year 2006, it won the iBest Prize for Best entertainment site, by popular jury . It was founded by Maurício Ricardo Quirino in 2000. The charges animadas (see below), which the site presents daily, are the main feature of the site. There are other minor features, such as the piada do dia (joke of the day) that publishes jokes sent by the site's visitors, and the emails comentados (commented emails), in which the site's owner will publish some of the emails sent to the site (which can range from site feedback, to relationship advice, to lame jokes, to people sending a message just asking to be published) and add some comments to them. There are also some Flash-powered games, also themed generally on recent events.

Charges animadas

The term charges animadas can be translated as something alongside animated cartoons. However, in Portuguese, the word charge is used to refer to editorial cartoons. These works consist of Flash animations of short length, showing some humorous, generally related to recent events and situations.


The term charge-okê is a fusion of the words charge and karaoke, properly adapted to Portuguese. It refers to some of the site's charges animadas that consist on musical parodies of popular music hits. The parodies are usually sung by a character who has something to do with the lyrics. For example, Brasileiro e sua consciência - Lonely, published on January 26, 2006, is a parody of the hit Lonely, sung by Akon. The modified lyrics talk about the indecision of a mid-class Brazilian on which candidate to choose in the Brazilian president elections in 2006. The charges-okê are published about once a week along with other regular charges.
