TOMATO POPS ITS  MOVEMBER CHERRY (Laura)

It’s not just us human’s who are getting into the Movember spirit this month, but it seems that the humble cherry tomato is also getting in on it too after a gardener from Germany reveals his prize cherry which bears a striking resemblance to Adolf Hitler. The strange but true fruit sports a Hitler style moustache and even has a tiny quiff making it look spookily similar to the tyrannical dictator. Green fingered gardener Heinz Zeilke says that rather than eating the fruit he’s just going to let it rot – shame I’m sure it would have tasted lovely on a nice tossed salad! http://www.metro.co.uk/weird/881947-gardener-grows-cherry-tomato-that-looks-like-adolf-hitler

 

HOW A MAP OF A WOMANS HEART LOOKS (Irina)

The Map of the Open Country of a Woman’s Heart was created sometime between 1833 and 1842 and shows how women were perceived 150 years ago. Looks like  “Love of Dress”,  “Love of Admiration”, “Selfishness” or “Coquetry” were some of the main characteristics of women.  If you are curious to find how important was the “City and District of Love” have a look at this picture. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/14/map-womans-heart_n_1093421.html.

 

PETA CREATES AN ENTIRE NEW SPECIES OF ANIMAL (Victoria)

Yesterday, PETA, known for their shock tactics and controversial ads, launched a campaign aimed to make people think twice before purchasing a traditional turkey for Thanksgiving.The billboard, pictures a hybrid dog/turkey creation (toggie, durkey?) and reads, “Kids: If You Wouldn’t Eat Your Dog, Why Eat a Turkey?”It is designed to highlight the mistreatment of the birds in their production for the holiday feast, and promote soy-based Turkey substitutes.I think many people would RATHER eat their pooches than tuck into products such as ‘Tofurky’. Check out the link below. I think I would quite like one of these as a pet. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/15/peta-turkey-dog_n_1094870.html?ir=Weird+News

SUMMER LEGO LOVIN (Gaynor)

I have always loved the timeless classic which is Grease. The love story captured the hearts of young and old when it was released. The soundtrack is particularly a highlight and this song is definitely a karaoke yes! Summer Lovin is my favourite scene in the movie with Sandy and Danny telling their pals how they met ‘the one’ over the summer. Check out this lego interpretation…quite hilarious! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_whyjdt5Qso

 

MAKE YOUR STICKMAN COME TO LIFE (Victoria)

I promise that this will be the most fun you’ve had on the internet…well, since that hilarious viral of a cat playing the piano. A friend introduced this utterly enchanting website to me last week whereby essentially you act as god, creating your own stickman and following him on an adventure that involves a fighting a dinosaur and avoiding a group of hungry sharks. After a couple of times playing, if you are feeling subversive then you can disobey your stickman and arm him with unsuitable objects of your choice – phallic shaped objects are particularly amusing.
