This Website Generates Hilariously Accurate Fake British Dishes

OK, don't get all Brexit on me, but British food names are weird. Come on, they are. Toad in the hole? Rarebit? Neeps and tatties? As with our place names, the rest of the world looks at our menus and just goes "WTF?" Read More >>

I Am Hooked on Riverdale Cringe Videos

I mostly watch Riverdale nowadays to make fun of it, and I don’t think I’m the only one. In fact, I can’t imagine there’s anyone out there who actually takes this show seriously anymore, including the show itself (with the occasional exception, like the Luke Perry tribute episode). Once you put a cult leader in a rocket, there’s really nowhere else you can go. But now, I may not even have to watch the episodes to get my Riverdale fill. I’ve found another way. Read More >>

A Drinking Game is the Only Sane Way to Try and Get Through Trump’s Impeachment Hearings

The first public hearings in the Trump impeachment inquiry begin today and they promise to be, if not explosive, then certainly mildly flammable, with Democrats and Republicans lining up on either side to tear a new dayglo-orange arsehole for or defend the US president to their dying breath. It’s bound to get ugly, and not only because most members of the US Congress look like they’ve just smelt a leak in their colostomy bag, so anyone tuning in would be forgiven for thinking inebriation will be the only way to make it through without throwing their TV/laptop/tablet/phone down the deepest hole they can find.

Headlines that will no doubt be hilarious if you read the Guardian, but will be infuriatingly inaccurate if you're a member of the Mail's legal and management teams. Read More >>
