Fun & games for Friday

After a dry patch last week, this week I’ve got a variety of things to entertain you with on the dullest day of the week. I however, will not be in need of any of them as I shall be having a mini away day at the British Library, pretending to be all academic and stuff.

First up is another Gizmodo gem, similar to one I posted a few weeks back – every week there’s a different photoshop contest and the results are usually fairly amusing. This week’s was:

But favourite of them all would be this one:

And, should you still need further entertainment, the Borowitz Report is usually good for a laugh. I always forget about it until my amusement-providing friend reminds me, but with headlines like Ayatollah Warns Iranians: ‘I am following you all on Twitter’ and Wall Street Salary Caps Drive Away Assholes, who could resist?
