For this week’s Stamp of Approval Saturday, I want to share with you this Buzzfeed that my colleague sent to me:

30 Very British Problems

Number 1 is my sister all over!!
Also, numbers 3, 11, 13 and 25 are so, so true.

Also, I discovered there’s an entire site dedicated to people sending in photos of themselves wearing a creepy horse head mask. Whaaaat? And we thought our Charlie idea was clever…

CreepyHorseMask.com

Never mind, Charlie Horse, you’re still our favourite!

Stamp of Approval Saturday (on Sunday)

We have returned from visiting the boyfriend’s family, and already he’s disappeared again to help set up for a conference that’s taking place in Karlsruhe from tomorrow. Never mind… it gives me plenty of time to catch up with the blogging world.

Once again, I’m linking up with Alex at Ifs, Ands & Butts for Stamp of Approval Saturday to bring you my favourite Internet finds of the week.

1. First up is Morbid Holiday, a site which describes itself as being “updated daily with a new offbeat comic or cartoon”. Unfortunately, the artist only did the daily thing for one year, so updates are now sporadic at best (there was a post yesterday, but before that there hadn’t been any updates since October) but if, like me, you only found it now, you have a whole year’s worth of hilarious comics to go through. My favourite is the real Cookie Monster:

2. Next is this summary of why Mrs Doubtfire is actually the most horrifying movie of all time. I literally laughed out loud at this. Not even kidding!

3. Another one from Buzzfeed, 31 Inanimate Objects With Secret Inner Lives. As someone who sees faces EVERYWHERE I adore this.

4. And finally, UHpinions, a site that gathers genuine funny reviews from Amazon, Yelp! etc. Some of them are utterly hilarious!

That’s all from me. Who gets your Stamp of approval this week? Don’t forget to check out Ifs, Ands & Butts for more excellent things from the Internet.

Stamp of Approval Sat… errr, Sunday

I know, I know… two posts in one day. How sad am I? 😉 But having no time at all to blog yesterday meant I completely missed the Stamp of Approval Saturday link up at Ifs, Ands & Butts. And I really, really need to share this with you.

Actually, all the credit for me having come across it goes to Hails at Coffee Helps, who shared it on Facebook. I promptly shared it on my own timeline because it was just too hilarious not to. I give you The Alot is Better Than You at Everything.

What is an Alot, you ask? Well, in the words of the author, “The Alot is an imaginary creature that I made up to help me deal with my compulsive need to correct other people’s grammar.  It kind of looks like a cross between a bear, a yak and a pug, and it has provided hours of entertainment for me in a situation where I’d normally be left feeling angry and disillusioned with the world.  ”

If you have ever been annoyed at somebody’s inability to use an apostrophe or actually hit the space bar between words, you NEED to read this post. If you’re anything like me, the Alot will soon become your new favourite animal…
