Who on Earth Taught You People How to Eat?

Depending on where you’re eating and who you’re eating it with, the rules around food can be stunningly complex. The core concept, however, is that food is inserted into the mouth, and once it’s there, if you find it impossible to masticate with human teeth or discover the object to be a source of pain/bleeding, an error in judgement has been made. Spit it out and try a new approach. Not food. Read More >>

Planet Hollywood’s London Prices are Taking a Trip Back in Time Today

Planet Hollywood has been around for a long time, and even though it never had the same kind of reputation as the likes of the Hard Rock Cafe it's still out there doing its thing - letting people at and drink while surrounded by film props and memorabilia.

Coming Soon: Waves of Royal Wedding-Themed KFC Buckets Selling for Outrageous Money

The Royal Wedding is on Saturday, which finally means we can be done with the hype that's being generated in the run up to two vaguely famous people standing in a church declaring they want to grow old together. We can move onto the more important things, like complaining about how the tabloids singled out a single female guest and aimed all their lecherous feelings at her. It'll certainly be the end of weird tie-in products, like KFC's Royal Wedding-theme buckets that will no doubt end up flooding eBay in the coming weeks. Read More >>

On Saturday a wedding is happening, with a member of the royal family marrying a woman who is neither royalty nor British. Because that's totally relevant, guys.

Americans Fail to Understand They Didn’t Invent All Food

There are countries all over the world that will adamantly declare that anything good in the world was created by them. The English are definitely guilty of that, but the Americans out there tend to take things to an extreme. Currently there's a bit of outrage going on on Twitter about the great Yorkshire Pudding, but America apparently has its own version that they're claiming to have invented all by themselves.

Wait, My Lego Toys Could Have Been Making Me Breakfast All These Years?

Breakfast may or may not be the most important meal of the day, but it’s also arguably hardest to make. Can you really trust yourself to safely use a hot stove while you’re still half asleep? Obviously not, and why go to all that effort when you can build a Lego machine to make you bacon and eggs while you catch a few extra minutes of shuteye. Read More >>

May 19th is a special day, because the people of Windsor are going to find it damn near impossible to do anything in the centre of their town.
