Just brilliant! I didn't know the Onion was doing video news now.

"Volunteers have started handing out diet tips and humorous poems about office life..."

I think the phrase "even a family member" is the weirdest bit.

A simple idea in these times of entitlement: have people tell you what pisses them off, set it to music and have a choir perform it. Do it in several different countries and compare the results.

Birmingham: The bus is too infrequent at 6.30... and I'm thirsty!

Canada: Why are my feet so cold? Air Canada sucks!

Helsinki: We always lose to Sweden in hockey, and the Finnish language is bloody difficult to learn!

S:t Petersburg: You can't light your cigarette on the eternal fire! Why don't the Rolling Stones play here?

Hamburg: So much water and you can't get to it... and everything's too loud!

So what do we learn from this experiment in cross-cultural exchange? Nobody anywhere has enough time, everything's too expensive, no country likes their politicians, everyone hates public transport... and everyone is sick of people complaining all the time!

The 2007 Bulwer-Lytton awards. I'm sure we could all do much worse than these.

As the hippo's jaws clamped on Henry's body he noted the four huge teeth badly in need of a clean, preferably with one of those electric sonic toothbrushes, and he reflected that his name would be immortalized by his unusual death, since hippo killings are not a daily occurrence, at least not in the high street of Chipping Sodbury.
That's not bad, that's brilliant!
