Tony Abbott Is Perfect As The Black Knight In Monty Python's The Holy Grail

The state election in Victoria is done and dusted — with the exception of a few close seats — and the ALP has come out on top (with the Greens doing alright too). A blow for the Liberal Party, definitely, though recently it hasn’t done itself any favours on a federal level. But that was yesterday.


Watch Out For Cave Leprechauns, Or You Might Become Rainbow Man

If you’re anxious for a fight between good and evil, well, the new Star Wars trailer should keep you frosty until… December 2015? That’s way too long to wait! Nothing can truly replace the epicness of lightsabres, the force and midichlorians Jar-Jar Binks lightsabres (they’re worth mention twice), but maybe a fellow by the name of “Rainbow Man” can help. A little. A tiny little.


Listen To Neil Gaiman Read Out Terrible Fake Neil Gaiman Stories

As part of a oddball challenge to its listeners, live radio show Wits in the US asked for submission for bad short stories, written in the style of Neil Gaiman. Now, this in itself isn’t that fascinating, but Wits took the competition a step further by getting Gaiman himself to read out the best… well, worst, of the entries.

Video: I don’t care what anyone says: Seinfeld is a masterpiece. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be over forever. Not when geniuses like Huw Parkinson are editing the characters from the show about nothing into Australia’s Parliamentary proceedings (which are also mostly about nothing). This is perfect.

This Is What Happens When You Mix Bowling And Crazy British Black Humour

This music video — by UK-based director Sam Pilling — takes us to the most bizarre bowling tournament I’ve seen in my life. It doesn’t say how the rules actually work, but it seems like the official ball has to be a severed human head. Don’t worry, there is nothing gore here, just some British dark humour at its best.
