From Boris and Barbara to Nick and George - via football, frescos and flying squirrels - check out our round-up of this week's silliest snaps...

  • Nick Clegg ponders the meaning of life, the universe and everything. Also, his unfortunate ear-plugs.

  • Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers on the touchline. Also: a knife's edge.

  • We know what you're thinking, but don't worry: it's a left-hand drive. And the cat sitting next to him is in <em>complete</em> control.

  • A squirrel jumps onto the court at the US Open...

  • ...and proceeds to streak across it. Shameless.

  • The Duchess of Cambridge's disguise fools no one at the London Paralympics.

  • Katie Price demonstrates her new underwired bra for the larger lady.

  • At last, George Osborne produces his evil claw.

  • Taking a nap, the Chinese army way.

  • The Queen pairs a turquoise twin set with pearls and red ear-plugs - not a look everyone could pull off. Not even Nick Clegg.

  • "Do we really have to keep hanging out with this dreadful couple?"

  • Our very favourite restored version of <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/08/31/ecce-homo-fresco-cecilia-prize-funny-pictures_n_1845907.html?utm_hp_ref=pics--giggles" target="_hplink">the Ecce Homo fresco</a>.

  • Boris steals Barbara's ball, and he isn't letting her have it back...

  • Oh, alright then. Maybe just this once.
