Best joke of the year

August 24, 2017
The funniest one-liner from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival has been announced.
A panel of comedy critics spent a week watching shows at the largest arts festival in the world which runs for most of August.
They compiled a shortlist of the 15 best one-liners which were then voted on by the public to determine the winner.
This year’s top spot was taken out by former professional poker player turned comedian, Ken Cheng, for his joke about a coin.
“I’m not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change.”
The other jokes that made it onto the shortlist were:

 • “I’ve given up asking rhetorical questions. What’s the point?” – Alexei Sayle

• “I like to imagine the guy who invented the umbrella was going to call it the ‘brella’. But he hesitated.” – Andy Field
• “I’m rubbish with names. It’s not my fault, it’s a condition. There’s a name for it…” – Jimeoin

Face-Kini new craze for summer

August 8, 2017
Check out the latest craze for this summer – the Face-Kini.
The Face-Kini, also known as a bikini for your face, has become a hit in China. This is because in China the colour of your skin can represent socio-economic status. Whiter skin is considered to represent wealth and beauty.
The new fashion craze maybe a little alarming at first, but the popular swimwear accessory offers full-face protection from the sun and jellyfish stings.
If you’re getting tired of slopping on sunscreen and catching yourself in the eye, the Face-Kini has you covered.
The Face-kini was invented by a former accountant Zhang Shifan and more than 30,000 have been sold in the last year.
Fortunately, they come in a wide range of different styles and patterns.
