1. Funny or Die takes on GOOP: wins
Ms Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop newsletter and growing foodie empire has been ripe for the slamming for a while now, and Funny or Die get it just right. For a frittata, Mrs Martin informs her audience, "I like to differentiate myself by using a combination of Faberge and Dodo eggs."
2. The secret to a long marriage? Matching outfits. Every day. For decades.
Cute or creepy: you decide.
3. Les Mis teaser
OK, this may be the opposite of funny... but it's the very definition of good (at least we think so). Musical theatre geeks: get ready to tingle! This shit looks epic.
4. The dog that won Britain's Got Talent
Really? A dog hasn't won this before? Hmm... OK, cynicism done. We like Pudsey and wish him luck in Hollywood, where he's off to next: don't do drugs, don't trust agents and remember to call your mum. As for Ashleigh, she's about as useful as Sophia Grace's hype girl.
5. Adorable hamster plays dead It's all in the build-up – and the face.
6. S Club party on Sunrise...
Or, your local dance school's annual show at the RSL.
7. Radiohead albums as Super Mario 8-bit soundtracks
We love you, person-with-enough-time-on-your-hands-to-do-this. A very cool YouTube user has taken the time to turn Radiohead albums Ok Computer and Kid A into 8-bit soundtracks to a Mario-style old-school computer game. Perfect headphone material to round out your day.
