funny shaped veg

Behold Carrot Man. He's strong, but with a surprisingly sensitive side. He likes strolls in the park, and good food. Despite such great qualities, he's never managed to find that special someone to share his life with.

So if you know of another carrot* who might like to get to know him, we'd love it if you'd get in touch.

We'd equally love to see more crazy shaped veg, so if you have any lurking around at the bottom of your garden, take a photo and email it to us at

A big thank you to Sally Hall for sending in this rather wonderful work of art.

* or any other veg for that matter

Weird shoes 2

Weird shoes 5
these are good for the sole

Weird shoes 3
imperative footwear for fruit towers employees

Need we say more?

community love

With all the recent troubles, there's been a funny feeling in the air. So it really warmed our hearts when we found these photos online today.

That's a lot of brooms. (Thanks to @lawcol888 for this picture.)

We're sure the guy in the purple is a lovely chap, but we like to think he's saying something like "Joan, that's just not good enough. Sweep harder woman."

This lot have certainly made us feel a little bit more positive about recent events, and we think they all deserve a bit of love. So if you see any of them when you're walking home from work tonight, be sure to give them a nice firm hug.
