Stephen Ireland is not right in the head, it's as simple as that. But he's a really talented footballer so I, for one, was willing to forgive him his strange indiscretions. I felt that the lies about dead grannies, the hair implants and the superman shorts would all be forgotten if he started banging them in for the national team again. That was until i saw this picture of his new customized Land Rover. Makes me ashamed to be a football fan.

For anyone who doesn't know who Karl Pilkington is yet, I will offer a brief explanation. Karl Pilkington, is the producer of, and contributor to, the Ricky Gervais Xfm Radio show. He is, by his own admission, extremely simple and has an obssesion with anything weird especially "freaks" and monkeys. It is as if Karl sees the world through the eyes of a five year old. I think the following statement from his wikipedia page best describes him;
"It was Karl himself who best summed up his worldview: "I don't like fun". He is not a fan of holidays, parties, traveling, or anything that has to be planned in advance. Maintaining relationships with family and friends is a tremendous hassle for him. He is also largely indifferent to some of life's great pleasures, like sex and music.However, If there's anything that fascinates Karl more than monkeys, it's freaks. His favourite film is The Elephant Man, and his prized posession is a little book of freaks from FHM which he carries everyhwere. Karl is extremely gullible and believes all urban myths no matter how implausible.
It was out of this interest that Cheeky Freak of the Week was born, in 2003. Similar in format to Monkey News(in which he tells improbable stories about monkeys which frequently apply strictly human attributes to primates),it involved Karl informing Ricky and Steve about a freak he'd discovered. Karl was always keen to stress that the feature wasn't "having a go" or "taking the Mick", it was to make people think, about what it would be like to have that deformity, what would the pros and cons be, etc.
As well as his specific views, ideas and philosophies, Karl also has a unique way of speaking. Karl's idiolect is made up of old-fashioned sayings (eg. "have it away"), Mancunian slang (eg. "knockin' about"), and correct English that has been misspoken (eg. "squoze")."
There is some speculation as to whether Karl is made up or not, but Steve Merchant and Gervais always strongly deny this. Personally, I originally thought he was fake but after listening to hours of his podcasts(its very addictive) I am finding it increasingly difficult to see him as a fictional character.

Nicholas Gurewitch is the best thing to happen to comic strips since Gary Larson. His strips, which can be found here, are really sharp, consistently funny and, as you can see above, illustrated brilliantly in a number of different styles.

Like a snipers bullet.
And Number (1).
That slowed down voice makes everything sound funnier.
