Hot blokes cracking out a few LOLs in the form of gifs was always going to be winner.

McDonald’s Big Mac landed in the UK on November 13, 1974. And where did this seismic event take place? Sexy Powis Street, in Woolwich, south east London, of course.

The company wanted a West End site but took what they could get.

How to make McDonald’s ‘secret’ spicy Big Mac sauce

On opening day, crowds gathered outside the shiny new fast food outlet from across the pond. Inside, they found wooden seats, an ashtray on every table, and some of the cheapest meals-out Brits had ever seen.

As we’re currently celebrating all things 70s (and because Maccy’s is celebrating its 75th anniversary in… Read the full story

What are you doing to me? (Picture: Youtube/KentuckyFriedIdiot)

Sure, you’ve seen loads of babies freaking out over the taste of lemons (if you haven’t, grab a small relative and try it. It’s hilarious).

But did you know that giving a baby a spoonful of avocado results in an even better reaction?

One brave parent decided to treat his baby to her first ever try of avocado.

The bad news: she wasn’t a fan. The very, very good news: her WTF reaction is hilarious…

But could you eat them? (Picture: Hello Kitty Chinese Cuisine)

The world’s most famous cartoon cat – who’s apparently not a cat despite the whiskers and being called Kitty – has now got her own restaurant.

When we realised there as an actual Hello Kitty Con in LA, we suspected that bloomin’ cat was after worldwide domination.

And now we have indisputable evidence.

The world’s first Hello Kitty fine dining restaurant is set to open on June 1 in Hong Kong, but has already had a ‘soft launch’.

While there are already cafes inspired by the cat in Adelaide, Australia, and Orange County, California, this is the first restaurant that will feature Chinese food on the menu.

Everyone’s going totally cray-cray for… Read the full story

See it, believe it (Picture: Porridge cafe)

Yes, this has happened. Someone has combined the health-nuts breakfast of choice – porridge – with the Britain’s greatest breakfast export – the full English.

The breakfast-in-a-bowl plays off the American love of combining sweet and salt, and is comprised of pure maple syrup porridge topped with a runny poached egg and crispy morsels of bacon.

Bacon and egg porridge is the latest oat-based innovation of Porridge Cafe London, who have just opened their latest pop-up in London’s Victoria station.

19 work moments that are the WORST for awkward people


Jim Halpert the office awkward look to camera

Being awkward is okay when you’re at home, alone, and don’t have to interact with actual people.

But once you have to go into the outside world, and sit in a proper office, it all starts getting a bit uncomfortable.

Because while for most people workplaces are just where you go to get work done, for awkward people, a 9-to-5 is just a long series of moments ripe with social weirdness…

1. The horror when someone has the audacity to accept your offer of making tea

I was just being polite. Don’t make it weird.

2. Followed by the tense moment when someone offers to make you tea, and you’d actually quite like one, but you don’t want them to make it for you

Now you have to wait at least an hour to get up and make it yourself, so you don’t seem rude.

3. ‘I’m leaving’ announcements

You’ve been peeling garlic wrong your whole life



This garlic hack is so good.

If, like us, you live by the ‘garlic goes with everything’ rule then you’ll be familiar with the faff of peeling it on the regular.

And yes, like us, you’ve been doing it wrong the entire time.

All you need to peel the outer skin of a garlic clove in a speedy few seconds is a small glass jar and some strong wrist action. Throw your garlic into the jar as it is, tighten the lid and really shake that baby up. Then open up and voila, the outer layer of skin will have fallen off.

Thank you to the team at Diply for bringing this wisdom into our lives.

These 47-year-old twins are addicted to being identical

***EXCLUSIVE***....HOLLYWOOD, CA - UNDATED: Collect picture of twin sisters Amy and Becky seen together.....OBSESSIVE twins Amy and Becky Glass are so close they haven't been apart for more than 30 minutes in 15 YEARS.

The pair say they are not interested in relationships anymore, and feel like they are ?married' to one another. Incredibly, Amy and Becky have been measuring out every bite of food… <a href=Read the full story

Strangely soothing (Picture: Lernert & Sander)

These pictures of raw food cut into 98 perfect squares will give you instant inner peace. Guaranteed.

They’re the work of Dutch artists and filmmakers Lernert & Sander. To create the series of stunning photographs, they cut the raw foods into 98 identical 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm cubes and arranged them into a perfect square.

13 pictures which prove penis-inspired interiors are not the one

Penis Interiors/ Houses
Well, it’s definitely a statement

Total c*ck up.

Penises may be marvellous, but unfortunately they don’t really translate into interior design.

Strange that.

And while we’re all up for celebrating the joy that is the willy, we can’t help but feel that the people behind these phallic interiors have taken things a tad too far.

So before you go and adorn your pad with a penis-shaped pool or four-penis-poster bed, we recommend you take a look at these 13 pictures which prove penis-inspired interiors are not the one.

When very questionable art starts to get a good rep in the world of fashion.

All you do is send Sean a photo that you want ‘badly drawn’ in black and white (yourself/ friend/ family member/ pet) and get it delivered back in a cellophane sleeve and hardback envelope.

After six months in hospital following a stroke, 81-year-old cancer sufferer Clarence Blackman from North Carolina returned home to find the cupboards empty.

With no food or water, and unable to leave the house, he made a desperate call to the emergency services.

According to ABC News, he told Marilyn Hinson, the 911 operator: ‘I can’t do anything. I can’t go anywhere.

‘I’m not broken, I’m not bleeding, and I’m not in crisis. I just want somebody to help me buy some food.’

Marilyn decided she had to help. ‘He was hungry,’ she explained. ‘I’ve been hungry. A lot of people can’t say that, but I can, and I can’t stand for anyone to be… Read the full story
