Requests for link exchanges are tacky (link to good stuff; be cool and don't expect a link in return), but what could I do when Spelling Mistakes Cost Lives got in touch? There's a legless horse, a crap TV presenter shagging on September 11th, and twisted drawings of Fred West and Lisa Riley.
It's a fucking malevole link magnet, dammit.

I was impressed by Sky
and Dell's cleverly targeted
'Pick up where you broke
off' and 'Double your
memory' adverts to
accompany this story.

Giving 'control freak' a whole new meaning

Playground Law is full of wonderfully bizarre and politically-incorrect childhood memories.

A schoolfriend always had dozens of boxes of this evil product in their bathroom. The poor kid was probably mentally (and quite possibly physically) scarred for life.

I'm concerned about their ranking algorithms, but the page title's great.

Tired of taking crap wide-angle pictures with your camera phone? Hold it up against one side of a pair of binoculars and, hey presto, you've got a zoom lens ideal for taking crap long-distance snaps of kites and sheep.

 Kite. Sheep.

That daft little animation seems to have gone down pretty well over the past 8 months, with half a million visitors, loads of links, and numerous mentions in print and on TV around the world. But all that was topped by this email:

I would love to use your Tribute to Ray Harryhausen in a power point presentation. I do leadership development training for the YMCA and think this would be a lot of fun to include.

(Apparently they loved it, but I'm now somewhat concerned about the future of their organisation; Skeletor's hardly a great leadership role model. Although, to be fair, any manager would find bungling employee Beast Man frustrating to deal with)

Having spent a weekend scraping, filling, sanding and painting walls I can confirm that The Karate Kid misled us all; performing repetitive property maintenance tasks does not result in arse-kicking martial arts abilities.

If you're a smoker going for a walk through the lovely Ryton Wood, it might be a good idea to avoid lighting up until you're well away from ex-landfill Ryton Pools...

Morcs decided not to eat this, but surely a bit of mottled green fried egg wouldn't have done him any harm?
Can't decide which it reminds me of more: a scene from Alien or that oft-emailed photo of the weightlifter with the prolapse

Just when I think our site's good I go and see yours. Godammit it you're too talented by half and them some more.
I've sent my Mechanical Barrymore after you and I've set him to 'auto-bum'.

Fucking hell, I don't know about wallets but I'm staying well away from swimming pools for a while.

I found this Polaroid photo alongside the pavement while walking into work a couple of weeks ago. It's nice to see that, despite the apparently dark, grotty, noisy (note the earplugs) conditions in the factory, the bloke towards the back seems really happy to be there.

"Tuna and mayo? OK...
I know this stuff does say 'salad cream' on the container and er.. it looks a bit like salad cream.. and it might taste like it to you.. but er.. it is mayonnaise, it's er.. how mayonnaise was when it was invented, the real thing like. Isn't that right, Dave?"
