How's your sense of humour? Try this for size... do you find The Trump funny or laughable? Amusing or risible? And are you puzzled sometimes when p...

I've hung up my elf outfit, put away my glitter and said goodbye to working in Santa's grotto for another year. I've lost track of the amount of cryi...

How Being Funny Saved My Bacon - What It Felt LIke To Be An English Immigrant In The United Kingdom

Lisa Ives | Posted 15.02.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Lisa Ives

I know I'm a funny lady because my mum told me so. And I see the fruits of my labour on the face of the person I'm talking to as it contorts into the kind of expression reserved for private appearances only. That's when you know you ARE bloody funny.

February has arrived. It's that month when you start to feel that Christmas is really behind us now. Time to start thinking about the summer and where to go on holiday. Fed up of the short, cold, days we dream of the sun on our face and sand between our toes...

If Google Translate Took Over Your Online Profile - Dating Over The Age Of 50

Lisa Ives

For the sake of argument let's call her, anything other than her real name, Liz. Liz is 51 and filled with a truck load of insecurity; this is what her profile would look like if she was brave enough to be honest. After all, they all find out in the end.

Extraordinarily Ordinary Social Satire

Anne Look | Posted 17.01.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Anne Look

Never has a generation held so many useless, unused degrees and yet felt so entitled to having it all. Unfortunately selfishness just might be our legacy. Our tombstones would read "A bunch of educated fools.", if anyone were around to see them.

Having Trouble Getting Your Small Human To Sleep? Sometimes All You Can Do Is Laugh

Your joint stress energy as parents may provide enough electricity to power a large town, but you're a sleep-deprived dribbling zombie whose eyes have ceased to function and you both work long full time hours to fund your toddler's Cheerios and pasta obsession.

Disney Without The Rose Tinted Glasses

Eddie Lewis

The one thing my Daughter loves more than anything apart from the sound of her own voice is Disney Princesses, even at three years old she has a sound understanding of all the Disney Princesses and gets lost in her story books, colouring books, and all of the Disney movies

My Intervention For Jeremy

David Zeff

I'm not one to exaggerate, I take no real pleasure in relaying to you my experiences during Tuesday 10th January 2017, but as cock ups go, you set a whole new level when it comes to a politician's failed attempt to reinvent themselves and offer up clarity of policies to the public at large.

On Thin Ice

Kevin Fleming

The pain begins before anyone hits the ice. Like some kind of head hood before the waterboarding you have to get the skates on the feet. In my case it was 8 feet. My wonderful wife Stacie, the keeper of important knowledge like UK shoe sizes, was kept late at the office with a call.

The Almost Funny Side Of IVF

IVF: I know that I don't have to explain to you what it is because it is a very normal thing today. You all know someone that has gone or is going through it. You may even be going through it right now and you are reading this to seek that little bit of camaraderie at what can be a very bewildering time.

It is the same thing every year; as soon as December 1st rears its head us Christmas lovers go into meltdown. We have this deep need that grows every year to make this Christmas the best Christmas yet and whether it's even more decorations and lights or more pots of twiglets than your family can physically consume, no expense is spared and no detail left out.

Don't get me wrong, I and millions of other women will be happy to have one breastfeeding emoji at least. Big thanks to Rachel Lee and Joshua Jones - the design may not be perfect but we owe them our gratitude for getting this far.

Needless to say some of those people I started following on Twitter made an appearance. In my dream I didn't seem the slightest bit surprised to find them all at an orgy, I must say here that NO FLESH was bared.

The new school year has started. First day photos have been taken, schoolbags have grown heavy with new books, and the reality of homework and early morning alarm clocks is beginning to set in. The evenings are shortening and the papers are speculating about the chances of an Indian Summer. It's September again...

Healing a Suicide Attempt: Cartooning My Experience

Amani Omejer

Life post-overdose had a different intensity to it - I couldn't run from my struggle anymore. I couldn't keep stuff shoved down and carry on regardless. I couldn't neglect my needs because saving myself after overdosing (I called the ambulance) was cementing a promise to myself - I was going to do this.

At Least No One Said You Were Pregnant, Mr Cleese

Kathryn Player | Posted 03.08.2016 | UK Entertainment

I loved the razor-sharp wit of John Cleese this week. In retaliation for being scorned for his 'paunched belly', Mr Cleese has hit back by reminding the Daily Mail editor about his head start in the heart attack stakes (currently standing at 5-0). But, John, at least no one said you were pregnant.

I don't readily applaud anything Kanye West does, in fact I think the guy is first class knob, but in the case of his push present for Kim after the birth of Saint, I whole heatedly approve.

Childbirth: Why Women Forget The Pain

The downright gorgeous Holly Willoughby has recently been quoted saying that she loves giving birth. She said that although birth was painful, it was a different kind of pain and it made her feel more alive that ever before - a feeling she has not gotten from anything else.

Why Did I Start Blogging?

Colin Taylor

In 2011 I was dispatched from Exeter to my new beat on the staggeringly beautiful Isles of Scilly, where several decades previously a journalist coined the phrase "The Land that Crime Forgot". The wretched strap line got cut and paste into every brochure, features piece and blog about the islands.

My Colonic Irrigation Nightmare

Max Dickins | Posted 14.06.2016 | UK Comedy
Max Dickins

I was going to have gallons of water pumped into my colon, using a tube inserted into my rectum. In doing so 26 years of bum gunk would be disturbed and then flow out of my arse, down a transparent tube which would RUN PAST MY HEAD, like some sort of faecal Generation Game.

A Visit From the Parenting Police

We also believe that ladies should keep a clean house, and allowing a toddler to throw food is a detriment to this end, as well as disrespectful to those in this world who sadly go without, and at the very least, extreme bad manners. We demand that this is rectified immediately.

Who says you have to wait for the man to propose, get down on that knee and ask your fella. Perhaps even present him with a ring. However, if your man is a bit of a cave man and surprises you (how dare he) with an engagement ring then you graciously accept.

Family Friendly Hotels: Is There Such a Thing?

Claire Kirby | Posted 06.06.2016 | UK Parents
Claire Kirby

I can't be the only parent out there that thinks hotels 'Family Rooms' are more like 'Torture Parents Rooms'. After several overnight stays confined to the one room with the small people, I have decided that no, there is no such thing as a family friendly hotel.
