Regular Einstein Awards

WE scour the local and international media to bring you the best and worst our planet has to offer. Drum roll please...



The ‘Most Uncontrollable Pet’ Award
goes to…
Benton the dog who became a YouTube hit after filmed chasing deer in Richmond Park and driving his owner mad in the process.


Knickers The ‘Should Have Gone To Primark’ Award goes to…
The collectors who spent thousands of pounds buying a load of Queen Victoria’s old granny pants at an auction this week. Apparently they were out of Fat Elvis Hawaiian shirts but Kayne West’s latest designs are still available in all sizes.


Hg The ‘Better Actor In Real Life’ Award goes to…
Hugh Grant, who gave a masterful performance as the not so foppish but crusading campaigner at the Leveson enquiry into press standards. The Guardian’s film critic Peter Bradshaw said it could be his best and most convincing role to date.


Seppblatter The ‘Time To Call The Men In White Coats’ Award goes to…
FIFA president Sepp Blatter who showed once again how out of touch he is with the real world. He remarked how a little spot of racism on the pitch can be put right with an apology and a handshake.


Sofie The ‘Best Product Placement For Knitwear’ Award goes to…
Sofie Grabol aka Sarah Lund in the cult Danish thriller The Killing. After becoming a style icon with her black and white patterned jumper in series one, detective Lund returned to our screens and had us all cooing with a new red knitted number.
