Top ten funniest jokes of this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

1) Tim Vine “I’ve just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I’ll tell you what, never again.”

2) David Gibson “I’m currently dating a couple of anorexics. Two birds, one stone.”

3) Emo Philips “I picked up a hitch hiker. You’ve got to when you hit them.”

4) Jack Whitehall “I bought one of those anti-bullying wristbands when they first came out. I say ‘bought’, I actually stole it off a short, fat ginger kid.”

5) Gary Delaney “As a kid I was made to walk the plank. We couldn’t afford a dog.”

6) John Bishop “Being an England supporter is like being the over-optimistic parents of the fat kid on sports day.”

7) Bo Burnham “What do you call a kid with no arms and an eyepatch? Names.”

8) Gary Delaney “Dave drowned. So at the funeral we got him a wreath in the shape of a lifebelt. Well, it’s what he would have wanted.”

9) Robert White “For Vanessa Feltz, life is like a box of chocolates: Empty.”

10) Gareth Richards “Wooden spoons are great. You can either use them to prepare food. Or, if you can’t be bothered with that, just write a number on one and walk into a pub…”

“The Missing” A photo project by Gustavo Germano, beautiful but sad…

Each picture represents a before and after ‘the dissapearance’ shot.

Picture above (1970): Maria Irma Ferreira, Maria Susana Ferreira; picture below (2006): Maria Susana Ferreira

From Zeit Online:

During the military dictatorship in Argentina from 1976 to 1983 nearly 30,000 people disappeared without trace. Der Fotograf Gustavo Germano gehört zu den Opfern des Staatsterrors. The photographer Gustavo Germano is one of the victims of state terror. Er verlor seinen ältesten Bruder. He lost his oldest brother. Mit seiner Fotoserie zeigt er auf eindrückliche Weise, was mit einer Familie geschieht, aus deren Mitte plötzlich ein Mensch gerissen wird. With his photo series, he shows in an impressive way what happens to a family from whose midst a man is suddenly broken. Germano hat Familienfotos aus den Siebziger Jahren nachfotografiert mit den Menschen, die die Militärdiktatur überlebt haben. Germano has rephotographed family photos from the seventies with the people who survived the military dictatorship. Manchmal fehlt ein Familienmitglied, manchmal gleich mehrere. Sometimes missing a family member, sometimes several. Einmal ist nur das Kind am Leben geblieben, ein anderes Mal ist die Ehefrau alleine zurückgeblieben oder die Schwester, wie auf den Bildern links. Only once the child is still alive, another time the wife is left behind alone, or the sister, as in the pictures on the [below].

Mark Twain left instructions not to publish his autobiography until 100 years after his death, which is now.

From The Independent:

Exactly a century after rumours of his death turned out to be entirely accurate, one of Mark Twain’s dying wishes is at last coming true: an extensive, outspoken and revelatory autobiography which he devoted the last decade of his life to writing is finally going to be published.

The creator of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and some of the most frequently misquoted catchphrases in the English language left behind 5,000 unedited pages of memoirs when he died in 1910, together with handwritten notes saying that he did not want them to hit bookshops for at least a century.

That milestone has now been reached, and in November the University of California, Berkeley, where the manuscript is in a vault, will release the first volume of Mark Twain’s autobiography. The eventual trilogy will run to half a million words, and shed new light on the quintessentially American novelist.

Banksy in NY May 2010

From the Gothamist:

Banksy has been traveling across the country for the last couple of weeks, doing pieces and promoting his movie “Exit Through The Giftshop”. After he hit Toronto and Boston, streetart enthusiasts were betting he’d show up in NYC. Those suspicions turned out to be true this morning, when this piece showed up at Cedar and Trinity down by Wall Street.

Previously things Banksy:
