British men try high heels for a day

This I love …

(This video reminds me of a pair of black patent leather heels, which were gorgeous in theory – less so, when I walked around Tin Man-style around the office, not unlike these brave souls. The shoes remain in my closet and that is where they will stay.)

Consent, in tea terms

Anything can be explained in terms of tea. If you have any doubt, check out Thames Valley Police’s viral video explaining sexual consent! Totally amazing!

What if Gordon Ramsay went nuts on “Masterchef Junior” kids?

What would happen if Gordon Ramsay treated the contestants on “Masterchef Junior” like contestants on “Hell’s Kitchen”?

Someone just put the two into a blender and, well, the results are quite magnificent. NSFW on account of the crazy bad language.

Straight Outta Teignmouth

Oh, Interwebs … you are a true time suck, but so many gems abound.

Take, for instance, this little beauty I found on my Facebook feed.

But this did make me laugh – well, why not a Yorkshire Mr. Men series, right?!
