Amanda Wilkie trawls the internet so you don’t have to. This week it’s all about the cats. And an old man in a bag. But mostly the cats.

A photo of a Halfords lorry caught in a bit of a tight spot has been doing the rounds. As Alanis Morissette might have sung, isn’t it ironic…don’t you think.

Stephen Fry was asked by broadcaster Gay Byrne for some thoughts on God. I’m not sure he quite anticipated Fry’s response.

As Andy Murray was in the Men’s Singles final at the Australian Open this week, it seemed a good time to remember the caught-at-the-perfect-moment photo which makes it look like he carries an old man around in his tennis bag.
