THIS Week’s Driving Tip of the day is brought to you by the Russian driver who tried to navigate his vehicle between one car towing another car. In Russia, this is how you drive. You pick the shortest route and go for it. If anyone is in the way, hoot the horn. If a building is in the way, hoot harder…
DOES the Internet really exist or is it all just a conspiracy? “Join us in this quest for justice and truth where facts and fiction will meet each other on an epic battle in the name of journalism.”
Lin Yu Chun is the one.

LISTEN up, cowboy. In today’s National Service Training Video we tell you how to toss a grenade. You toss a grenade..? Yes, you, madam, in the England whites and hooked hands. Yes, that’s right, you toss a grenade “far”.
In this video a Chinese soldiers tosses his grenade into the bunker wall. Problem is that he’s stood in the bunker.
EVERYONE wants to be a Single Lady with Beyonce. “You can be a Single Lady if you want.” So says Mum. Mummy knows best. Mums have been creating single ladies for eons. Daddy wants more from his son. Shiloh Pitt understands.

WHO needs Wayne Rooney to stamp on your goolies when you can make you own entertainment? Not that game lad:
EVER wonder what the Daily Mail sounds like? Anorak always thought it was the clack of marmalade-coated tongue hitting the roof of the Arkela’s mouth. What does spite and fear sound like? Surrey? It turns out it also sounds like Dan and Dan:
ON Russia’s version of QVC – QVCCCP – the wonderful Blade Sharpener Demonstration Fail is the go. Look on in wonder as with theses scissor sharpeners not only do you get a handy gadget but you ALSO get a man to switch the old crappy scissors for a new pair of blades that actually work.
THE week’s news round-up is brought to you by Finnish morning news anchor Kirsi Alm-Siira.

TODAY’S polar bear news is hijacked by Meow Meow the angry panda. Once pandas where the big bears on the news agenda. Then the polar bears started sitting on ice and melting it to make them look small and hopeless.
The media lapped it up and the pandas were shafted. One a brighter note, with less gawping, the pandas have been shagging like Jesse James at a Tiger Woods pro-priest invitational and there are now millions perhaps billions of them.
The woman reacts badly.
The small news story becomes a bigger news story.
The lesson is that if you want to get on in TV, work with children, animals and woman getting stopped by traffic police.
The story ends with the driver getting a ticket for speeding and a fine for assault. The reporter gets her scoop…
TIME for a follow up to that lorry driver training video in which a driver for Arclid Transport HGV finds a new way to increase a Renault Clio’s fuel efficiency without loss of power nor speed.
Rona Williams, who was behind the wheel of the Clio as it journeyed sideways along the A1(M) near Wetherby, West Yorkshire, says she thought she was going to die.
She pulled the handbrake and flashed her lights. And after around a minute the driver slows.
She lived. And another use for a nippy French hatchback was found…
The Kennel Club guidelines state that a Bulldog should “convey an impression of determination, strength and activity”.
How it does this is open to interpretation.
Some owners stick a plastic union flag in it collar or play the opening bars to the national anthem – others tickle its balls.
The dog responds buy looking chipper, noble and stirred…
PILIPINAS Got talent. The local versions of Ant ‘n’ Dec are in palce. The judges are seated. And then it gets weird….

Or is this just a new way of delivering cars?
As the website for Arclid Transport boats:
Our service is our strength. We have developed an unsurpassed reputation for delivery where you want it, when you want it – swiftly and safely….
We don’t yet know what led to this scene, and if anyone from Arclid wants to get in touch, we’d be happy to put their side of the story.
As it says on the site:
We understand the importance of our deliveries to your company, and therefore ensure a personal and efficient service is always provided.
This video is for all of you who have had to endure the readings of a man who likes to say things out loud to quell the voices in his head. Next week, the same group and try it with a Koran…
It’s just a book, right… Right?

EUROVISION looms and sad news that you will nto be seeing Buranovskiye Babushki sinigng Kak zhit – “How To Live“. The ladies only scored third place, losing out to Russia’s very own Borat Mr Peter Nalich and his song Lost and Forgotten. B

HOW many people can you get in to a small hatchback car? The golden rule is that no-one gets left behind.
It works for the military and it works for East European labourers.
We counted them all in. And we counted them all out.
PAUL Daniels is turning into Alan Patridge. He used to be on the telly. Your writer once saw him on stage. He performed a trick where members of the studio audience arrived on stage and sat on chairs. A touch from Paul’s hand and each was rendered unable to stand. Magnets? Magic? Maybe. Most likely it was Paul whispering: “When I tap you on the shoulder do not stand up.”
No word yet from Kisscape, but as soon as the experts have spoken to us, we will speak with you.
In the meantime the advice is to shut your windows, lock your doors and rip the heads off your teddies.
Do this before we’re all stuffed…
