You won’t be able to stop watching this girl’s EPIC fall (don’t worry, she was okay. Sort of) Going, going, gone (Picture: YouTube) Stop everything because you need to watch this. This girl’s absolutely EPIC fall backwards as she tries to slide down a banister is the funniest thing you’ll see all week (given that we know she survived and was relatively unharmed). The clip is of 17-year-old Annie Schwenker from South Carolina and was taken by her friend Maddie Frank two months ago. Two days ago, Annie gave Maddie permission to share the video with the world. Thank you Annie. This is comedy gold. Seriously, you won’t be able to stop watching it. CAN WE PLEASE MAKE […] Read more →

Train company hopes to re-unite children with lost teddy bears using ‘mugshot’ campaign Does he look familiar to you? (Picture: First Great Western) Children who thought they’d never see their lost teddy bears again could soon be reunited with them after a train company launched a special campaign. ‘Mugshots’ of the unclaimed stuffed toys left on trains have been posted by First Great Western on its website in the hopes their owners would recognise them. The teddies have been found in the south of the country and dozens are currently spread across the lost property offices of different train stations, including Bristol Temple Meads.

But is this not putting even more pressure on women who have just […] Read more →

We all know Homer Simpson is a little overweight. But is he fuelling the obesity crisis? One health expert thinks Homer’s setting such a bad example, he’s written a letter to Simpsons creator Matt Groening asking him to put Homer on a diet. Steve Miller, who presented TV show Fat Families, says Homer and other fat cartoon characters suggest ‘you can be fat and happy and eat as much as you want’. ‘I don’t want people seeing Homer Simpson being fat, stuffing food in and being happy,’ he explained. ‘The reason I decided […] Read more →
