Strength in numbers

People attending an Anzac Day dawn service in New Zealand manhandled a car which was parked in the “worst possible place”.

“It was right at the bottom of the steps, leading up to where the speakers are, right in the middle of where the wreath-layers come out to get their wreaths,” New Plymouth RSA president and veteran Graham Chard said, according to Radio New Zealand.

Horses run wild in London

The horses were rounded up and received veterinary treatment.

Gullscreeching contest

This week, “seagull boy” aka, Cooper, from Chesterfield in Derbyshire, won the European Championships of Gullscreeching.

Apparently people competing are judged on how well they can screech and their understanding of gull behaviour.


Contestants screeched, squawked and cawed their way to glory in the European Championships of Gullscreeching on Sunday in front of a packed audience in Belgium. Competitors were scored on both the sound of the screech and how well they understood gull behavior, the event organizer told local media. Who do you think did the best? #europe #belgium

Smiling Maggie

No one smiles quite like Maggie, the very happy puppy who was spending some time at a doggy daycare this week.

Her tail was wagging and her smile was so big she couldn’t keep her eyes open.
