Beanbag, teddy bear or stuffed crust: the delicate art of stuffing

Okay, so we might be asking for trouble with the title of today’s post, but hear us out. The delicate art of stuffing is one that we take very seriously around these parts – the stuffed crust is a sacred thing, after all – and anyone underestimating the care and attention required to get it […]

Disgusting food you’ve learnt to love

Many of us can recall being tricked into eating  disgusting food: the intimidating fork aeroplane, zooming towards your reluctant face, the promise of prizes if you force down that final pea, the whole family racing each other to shove in all their salad. These experiences left many of us scarred throughout our teenage years, and […]

Transfer deadline day with #PizzaShilton

Hurrah, hurray! Monday was transfer deadline day! It comes but twice a year and the rolling mixture of glorious highs, crushing lows, peculiar rumours and comedy revelations make it almost impossible to get any work done.

#givethemadominos: great moments in August that deserve a Domino’s

We’re always on the lookout for great moments that we can celebrate, and August has been mighty kind to us – so kind, in fact, that more than a few of these choice clips might have made us cry. Ahem. So if you fancy sniffling at an adorable old man being given a puppy or watching Justin […]

Most tenuous rhyming words in music history

There has been some unforgivable lyric-writing over the years – sometimes even managing to infiltrate the best moments in our favourite songs. These word offences are often overlooked because we all get a bit too excited by the cheesy tunes, heartfelt singing, powerful drum-bashing or squealy guitars. But, really, their writers ought to be put under […]

The best ever reality TV show quotes

With Made in Chelsea: New York hitting our screens last night (and wasn’t it just fabulous, dahling?), we started to get a little nostalgic about British reality TV shows and all of their brilliant moments over the years. Imagine what kind of world we’d be living in now without all the Big Brother gossip about Helen and Paul back in […]

Quiz: how are you at being British?

Ah, being stereotypically British. It’s pretty great. Sure, it involves feeling socially uncomfortable, self-conscious and immediately regretful most of the time. Sure, you feel like you’ve been kicked in the stomach when you smile back at someone who it turns out was actually smiling at the person behind you. Sure, it involves a compulsive need […]

#givethemadominos: great moments in July that deserve a Domino’s

The news has a responsibility to report on the most significant global events at any given time – and, let’s be honest, most of it’s depressing and makes us all feel pretty sad.  But we like to focus on greatness wherever we can, and we’re pleased to report that the world has been busy excelling […]

Athletics: epic fails

With more world-class sports set to grace our screens this week, we’re all geared up for some fantastic viewing. But instead of celebrating the incredible physical prowess of those competing – that’d be too easy – we’re celebrating the greatness of epic fails in athletics over the years instead. Featuring pole vault palavers, javelin japes […]

In between the action of 2014′s matches, marvel at Stoichkov’s unbelievably smooth skills, and cradle your head in your hands at a few of the more, um, cringe-worthy misses. […]
