Funny story:  Celebrities choose their World Cup XIs

Celebrities choose their World Cup XIs

Because it's the World Cup Final this weekend, we asked a number of celebrities to tell us who their top World Cup XI would be if they could choose anyone or anything to be on the team. We then imagined what would happen if they actually played each other. Reverend Timothy Pulpit selected a diverse group of objects. In the midfield he had church and gay marriage; on the left wing, Jesus, and on...

The First World War reenacted - with taxidermy

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. It is a solemn occasion to remember a dark chapter in human history, which led to the deaths of 20 million people, over half of them civilians. To commemorate the event, Dorking's premier taxidermist Robin Stuffing has created a life-size replica of the trenches of the Western Front. The roles of soldiers and officer...

The Shakin' Stevens Phenomenon

It seems that you can't walk five paces down the street in 2014 without seeing yet another Shakin' Stevens impersonator. In pubs, clubs and even jailhouses throughout the UK, people regularly hold events to dress up as and celebrate the hip-shaking denim-wearing crooner, and to many he truly is "The King of Rock and Roll". So how did Shakin' Stevens become the wonder of the UK? Superfan Stephen...

Winter Olympics roundup

Hi! My name's Tad Poleman and here is my official roundup of the Winter Olympics here in Sushi, Russia. We're now halfway through the Olympic Games, and it's been so exciting I haven't even written an article about it yet. So here is a summary of what's happened so far. Who can forget Geoff Chafe winning Britain's one and only medal in the nude luge? Amazingly he beat his nearest opponent the G...

Funny story:  Tarts of the Somme

Tarts of the Somme

Ever since the dull Wilfred Owen wrote his famous poem, "Prossies lose decorum if", there has been a fascination with the ladies of the night who frequented the trenches of the Western Front during World War One. They struggled with great hardship in sticky times. The Front was harsh, lonely and felt like the very bottom of the world. Most poor soldiers were therefore very pleased to have a lad...

Why Britain Hates The Winter Olympics

On the 7th of February, President Vladimir Putin of Russia will insert a flaming 12-inch torch into a fur-lined brown ring in Sochi, causing a shower of snowy liquid to shoot over the expectant crowd and thereby bringing to a start the Winter Olympics of 2014. It is sure to be a gay old time for all involved, but how did we get here? Where did it all begin? The answer, perhaps unsurprisingly, i...

Funny story:  The bravest pioneer chimponaut

The bravest pioneer chimponaut

In the 1950s, a small group of brave chimps had the adventure of their lifetime. They went to that place where apes often dream of, but where none had ever gone before - outer space. Throughout the decade, it was assumed that chimpanzees would be better suited to space travel than humans, because there is a lack of launderettes away from Earth and chimps don't wear any clothes. At least not usu...

Funny story:  Why do the French refuse to adopt the foot?

Why do the French refuse to adopt the foot?

It is a question which has confused generations. Why do the French insist on continuing to use their strange outdated measurements such as the kilometre, the gram and the snail? It seems to be arrogance which prevents them from adopting the British Imperial System, with its far more logical conversions - 12 barleycorns to the hand, 3 hands to the foot, 3 feet to the yard, and 1760 yards to the...

Funny story:  Living on £1 a day, by Sir Geoffrey Mansionhouse

Living on £1 a day, by Sir Geoffrey Mansionhouse

During the course of one of our legendary chats at my local gentleman's club, my chum Lord Percy made me a bet that I could not refuse. Namely, that I could live off £1 a day for a week. "Nonsense," I replied. "Why, one could buy 50 pints of milk at that price!" I admit that I had not researched the subject thoroughly and my milk comment was slightly off. Usually my butler and partner Jeeve...

Benefit changes come into effect

Across the UK there was outrage today among benefit fans, when long-expected changes to the benefits system came into place. "I'm outraged," said deceased political activist Spencer Perceval.

Forgotten Heroes of World War II: Part 7

There are many stories of bravery and heroism from the Second World War, but one group of people are often completely ignored in the complex and significant history of that period. In her new book "Bozo's War", historian Wendy Wilsfalov explores the roles that clowns played during WW2 on both sides. She argues that many operations during the conflict could not been successfully carried out with...

Funny story:  Pope on a rope

Pope on a rope

The new pope, Francis I, will have a full inbox as he settles into an unfamiliar position for him. That should however be no problem for a man who has worked his way up from the bottom as a choirboy, and can now command anyone in the whole Catholic Church to kneel before him. There was some disappointment that a more radical choice was not made for the most powerful man in the ancient Bible-bas...
