World Cup memes

Last weekend saw France beat Croatia to become the 2018 World Cup winners. Sticking with the World Cup theme, here's a round-up of some of the memes that did the rounds on social media during the World Cup...

1) Close enough...

"Three lions on the shirt."

More nice reviews.

It's been a few months since I released my short story, 'We Come In Peace', and I'm happy to say I've had a couple of nice reviews. My recent short stories have also been getting a lot more downloads than I usually get, so all in all I'm really pleased.

Here are the reviews of 'We Come In Peace', together with a few reviews of some of my earlier short stories:

1) We Come In Peace

Here's the first review...

"Great short story, funny and clever."

10 Funny Quiz Show Answers (Part 6)

It's time for another round-up of amusing quiz show answers, starting with a contestant whose specialist subject most definitely isn't astronomy...

Advice for quiz contestants: Robots don't count as life.
1) "What is the only planet in the universe known to support life?"

2) "Name a weapon in the game of Cluedo."

Hmm, maybe if you're playing against a really bad tempered player...

3) "What fruit has varieties called Mandarin and Seville?"

Faces In Things (Part 2)

As I've mentioned before on the Charles Fudgemuffin blog, pareidolia is the phenomenon of seeing faces (or other items) in everyday objects and patterns.

Here are a few more examples of pareidolia...

1) Laughing slippers

I don't know what amused these slippers so much, but it was obviously hilarious.

Funny Things Kids Say (Part 5)

It's been almost a year since my last batch of funny comments by kids, so here are a few more funny things said by kids. Once again, the names have been changed to protect the (not so) innocent.

Beautiful lake, or fiery volcano.
You decide.

1) A smart kid

Some kids can be wise beyond their years...

"My daughter has a valid point... Why do we say, “Go jump in a lake”? Jumping in a lake can be quite nice. We should say, “Go jump in an active volcano.”

Wise, and also quite sadistic.

2) Young love

Here's one kid who already has her future love life planned out...

Mother: "Pearl, what would you do if two boys were fighting over you?"
Pearl: "I would run away and say, “You’re both idiots!”

Confusing perspective

This week the Charles Fudgemuffin blog features a selection of photos which may, at first glance, not be quite what they seem...

1) Flying ships

Is this what we have to look forward to in the future? Ships that can fly?

As you've probably worked out, the ships are actually on a lake, but at first glance my brain thought they were flying in the sky.

Never work with children or animals ... or violent psychopathic criminals!

My latest short story, 'Never Work With Children Or Animals ... Or Violent Psychopathic Criminals', is released this weekend, so sticking with that theme, this week's blog post features a collection of memes featuring children, animals, and criminals ... and in some cases a combination of the three.

1) Three held in 30 man brawl

This first photo highlights that appearances can be deceiving...

I'm hoping this is simply a case of a badly placed headline/photo combination.
