Friday Fun

An absolute treasure trove this week, so I'll start with Oddbox. This week an enormous lego pupmkin, 12 cute, baby pandas and the worlds longest headed goal.

From the rest of the BBC there are some peaches. Ever got lost in a city, even if you have GPS? Me neither, but here are 6 ways to work out which direction you should go. Did you know that monkeys can control virtual arms with their minds? Neither did I. It comes alongside the sad news that you cannot lose weight by thinking about it. Guess I'll have to forget the doughnuts.

Newsbiscuit time.

The main stories have had a dig at American justice, Greece has discovered the penalty clauses in it's bailout by Germany and how NOT to be a father.

Shorter stories include 'Thinnest material known to man discovered in TV sitcoms' and one for the older generation, 'Milk Tray man finally caught after stalking women and leaving tawdry chocolate'.

Headlines: 'Greece receives Nobel prize for Economics', 'Steve Jobs jokes condemned as Un-PC' and 'Fake Steve Jobs seen in China'.

Do you like poking fun at religion? So do the christians at 'Ship of Fools'. The highlights of their site for lovers of comedy are the church signs and gadgets for god. Under 'general foolishness' you can find the fruitcake zone, full of people who are being serious, but shouldn't be taken that way.

Lastly, Steve Jobs RIP, picture courtesy of newsbiscuit.

You don't disappoint; thanks for the laughs.

But Steve Jobs -- holy crap. Gone far too soon.

Milo: Steve Jobs, too young.
