Police Instagram account is unending source of hilarity

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Cool Websites on Thursday 25 September 2014

What are the police like in your country? Testosterone-fuelled gun-wielding maniacs, corrupt as the day is long or apathetic cynics with little to do other than stop you riding your bike on the sidewalk?

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Websites on Tuesday 19 August 2014

Now this is one cleavage, sorry, clever guy. Yelp reviewer, ‘Charley C’, has been reviewing a number of restaurants with descriptions including ‘tender’, ‘firm’, and ‘DDD: Doubly Delicious Dinner’. But we’re not sure the reviews are genuinely about the food, and not really about something a little more, er, risque. Charley has reviewed four restaurants on Yelp, and offered up 34 tips. And, oh yeah, he has lots and lots of pics of what he describes as ‘Double Deeeelicious’ food.

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in Cool Websites on Friday 8 August 2014

If you care to visit The Manhood tumblr, you’ll see that this vision of her has been photoshopped into just about anything and everything.

America’s TSA never fails to entertain us with their bizarre practices. And they’re entertaining us all over again with their Instagram account (yeah, they actually have one).
