3.5 Years Jail For Pokemon Hunter

We wrote last October that Russian YouTube vlogger Ruslan Sokolovsky faced up to 5 years in prison for playing Pokemon Go in church. After recording and posting the hunt online to his 300,000 followers, he was visited by the law and has been accused of "offending religious sensibilities". To be fair, the Russian government did issue a warning to its citizens first but they have now confirmed the prosecutors are

Has Monty Python Hijacked The News ?

Recently the news has been so scary, we have been struggling to laugh at even the Donald. His press "conferences", command of the English language (or lack thereof), posturing and ridiculous hair are usually hilarious, (while simultaneously terrifying), but nothing compares to yesterdays news. In fact, we are convinced that Monty Python hijacked the news on the 19th of April 2017, much to my and I am sure everyones delight.

Part of my daily duties included ferrying personnel by small boat between the various elements of our

The Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn – a reply to Owen Jones by Tom London

Owen Jones has written an article this week in the Guardian calling on Jeremy Corbyn to stand down. I take what Jones says seriously but I think he is wrong. Some may dismiss what Jones says by attacking the man and not the argument. Jones himself anticipates this - “The party’s warring factions now refuse to accept that differing opinions are expressed in good faith - there have to be

Todays Musicians Still Not Worthy of YouTubes Money

In a story that has been circulating for many years now, we think we have finally found the answer. The reason musicians don't get paid what they think they should from YouTube, is basically because they are not worth it. On a side note, we have a "Free Beer for Life" competition running for the first person who brings us the severed heads of anyone involved with Owl City (the music

New Targets for 2017

After all of the wonderful people who passed away last year, (R.I.P. Sir Terry Wogan), we are pleased to report that the law of averages has been in touch with us and has good news. It dictates that 2017 will be a much better year for celebrity deaths and states that we will be able to dance on the graves of many politicians, CEO's and warmongers as the year goes
