It is easy to fool the world with a fake photo these days. You might pretend that a dinosaur is eating New York, that you have the unreleased iPhone 32 in your hand or that you are drinking a beer with Justin Bieber (Actually, that last one might be real but who would care anyway?) What’s more difficult is fooling the world with an image that looks fake but isn’t.
Well, the 2012 Olympics are well underway in London, England. I’m sure you’ve all been glued to your sofas, watching the world’s greatest athletes swim and cycle and sprint and ride and row and shoot and punch and murder (okay, maybe not murder), breaking world records hither and thither, all in the name of bagging a gold, silver or bronze medal for their home country.

But we’re not the only species on planet Earth that enjoys devouring slices of pizza; no, no – cats do too.
Yes, as you’ll see in the rib-tickling pictures arranged below, our feline companions also enjoy the scrumptious taste of Italy’s finest invention. They enjoy all sorts of pizzas, from cheese and tomato to spinach and ricotta. They like deep-dish, thin-crust, small, medium and large. They’re regular old Garfield wannabes and unashamed to say so. Now, go on, take a peek, but no snatching any slices; kitties have got claws, remember. [Read more…]
I’m sure most of you have been regularly exposed to images of dogs hilariously riding skateboards: they frequently do the rounds. As a result of this internet-fueled overexposure, the visual gag of skateboard-commuting canines has inevitably run dry, the once-comical sight now more boring than it is rib-tickling. [Read more…]
