Is it Thursday already? This is Econsultancy’s anti-format of random interweb funnies, designed to give you that post-hump-day turbo boost that’ll propel you over the hill of the weekend and right through the wooden fence of Monday morning.

Of course, it’s all a bit of fun; hyper-extended metaphors and many a pinch of salt.

Once you’ve finished here, be a dear and dive back into our more pratical best practice blog posts and research.

Thanking you!

#Ask[x] question of the week

In a week when #askGaryBarlow is still going strong on Twitter, it’s surprising that my favourite question is aimed not at Gary, but one of X Factor’s contestants, the ignorantly named ‘Kingsland Road’ (it’s in North London, if you don’t know it).
