“I’d like to be taken from behind by something big”

Mums: far from perfect and all the better for it. We celebrate some light-hearted mum fails that have absolutely certainly not left anyone scarred for life.

QOTM: What’s your favourite smell?

We asked our contributors what tickles their olfactory organs. Fresh manure and frying onions, anyone?

The dogs of awww

It's National Puppy Day, so we asked our contributors to share a pic of their pup. Because how else do you celebrate it?

7 Wonders: Sláinte!

It’s St Patrick’s Day, so our writers have chosen favourite songs from Irish artists. Oh, and this: dear Ireland, repeal the 8th, would you? Thanks.

Weird sisters

There’s no doubt that in the 16th and 17th century witches got, to put it mildly, a bad press. On the 325th anniversary of the Salem Witch Trials, our writers celebrate some excellent magic madams.

Our dream tea dates

It's Women's History Month, so we're wondering who our contributors would like to take out for a nice cup of tea or pint while quizzing them about their life.

And the Oscar for best mistake goes to…

It's still a little uncertain who is responsible for the calamitous balls-up at this year's Academy Awards which saw Moonlight's Best Film prize go to La La Land. But, we've all made a massive boo-boo at work, right?

QOTM: What never fails to cheer you up?

Maybe it’s your baby’s toothless grin. Maybe it’s the feel of crunchy snow under your feet. Or maybe it’s an unopened bag of Minstrels. What’s your ultimate pick-me-up?

7 Wonders: Political shitshows

Ever wondered what Theresa May might have on her playlist? Or Trump? Or Putin? We decided to have our best guess. Warning: Contains FAKE NEWS.

Silver screen smilers

Having a bank of surefire pick-me-ups has never been more important. We asked the Standard Issue gang to share the films which they have on speed dial when they need to escape. We’re thinking they’ll currently have them on a loop.
