Does a British Person Actually Like You?
Yep, pretty much, right? Thanks to Overheard in Waitrose for this gem.
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.)
It’s 10 years since a man was interviewed on BBC by mistake
What happens when a taxi driver Guy Goma turns up at BBC Studios to interview for a job as a Data Support Cleanser but ends up being mistaken for expert Guy Kewney?

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.
For anyone who has passed through the west coast of Devon, you may know Teignmouth. It’s a pretty little seaside town, where my husband grew up, and I find this video so amusing and evocative – I feel like I’ve just visited. Amazing.
Yorkshire Mr. Men
Ah, I love the Mr. Men series. Mr. Tickle, Mr. Messy, Mr. Nosey. So iconic!
But this did make me laugh – well, why not a Yorkshire Mr. Men series, right?!
