As he prepared to board the waiting transport Fallschirmjäger Helmut was still uneasy, despite all his Kommandant's assurances. Silk shortage or not, a parachute still felt safer, he reckoned.

George sighed inwardly. Twenty years as an assistant in Rutherford's Photographers, using everything from rubber ducks to stupid fancy dress just to get little bitch and bastard offspring of bigger bitches and bastards to "smile for the camera" at least long enough to snap their unbearably smug, spoiled little mushes. The tantrums. The smell of pee. Oh, the indignity of it all ...

... no, this would be the last, he resolved. Tonight, the warm bath, the brandy, the razor blade, sweet oblivion .........

... inside the panda suit he smiled for the first time in years ...

Known to his Vikings friends as 'Rambo' but to his enemies as 'Lambi', history remember Kettle the Farsighted as one of the great patrons of metallurgy.

City Flashlights cinema manager Rod Grubbs (pictured centre) said he now regrets placing an ad in the Sydney Herald announcing New South Wales' first drive-in cinema and encouraging punters to "Get in early to get the best view". "We meant after we had converted the cinema of course," he admitted. "Could've made it clearer. Stupid drongos round here. I should have known."

M'Lud, may I present item number 9 in evidence, a photograph of the deceased inventor, Mr Edward Prump, taken just hours before this long-time aspirant to innovation's murder. Now take a close look at the face of the accused, his wife Mrs Gladys Prump, and you will not need the benefit of my learned counsel to attribute motive in this case.

Would the University of Leicester never learn?

It was good of them to allow the remains to be sent up to York for the first leg of the Strictly Come Richard UK Tour, but was all this unseemly razzmatazz entirely necessary?

Sir Grafton Elliot Smith (pointing): Arthur, in my learned opinion you should apply the superglue just there!
Sir Arthur Keith (in white coat): Thank you, Ellie, you are right. Using a stapler on Dunstable Man gave the whole game away, didn't it? This Piltdown Man must be done just right!
Sir Charles Dawson (smiling at rear): Good thinking using a baboon skull this time, boys. I take back the zebra suggestion.

Some people believe that Holbein's portrait of Sir Simon Simeon includes a secret relating to the fate of Edward Plantagenet, Son of Clarence. The masked infant figure is believed to be reference to the said Earl of Warwick rumoured to have been adopted by Simeon who then spirited him away overseas. Some argue that the lone tree hill suggests that he was sent to the Levant while others point to the setting sun as proof that he went to the Americas.

Fred turned round and surveyed his handiwork from beneath the shade of his pith helmet. Shooting and stuffing the buggers had been great fun. Especially the humans.

Stan was utterly depressed. Legia Warszawal get beaten 5-1 by Dynamo Moscow in the first round of the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup 1514 - and no one gives a damn!

Young Vladimir eyed the elders closely, trying desperately not to let his features betray his absolute loathing for the old fools. Who did they think they were - electing a drunk like Yeltsin to lead the Silly Hat Committee? Couldn't they see a born leader in their midst? A hero? A tough guy? A man with the hugest hat?

Hobbit twin sisters, Rose and Rosetta Cotton take Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings trilogy of films, to court for miss-representation. "It's not the stupid rubber feet we object to, nor the fact that we have both been simply distilled together into Sam Gamgee's 'love interest', it's just the actress's constant hideous smile that we find so un-natural."

The case continues.
