This week’s round up is brought to you by our sponsors Alka-Seltzer, Poorly Pouch Sick Bags and the nearest bacon sandwich I can find.
Yes it’s the morning after the Festival of Marketing and as such this collection of amusing entertainments from around the internet will be brought to you through mirrored sunglasses and a minor tremor.

I seem to have lost the ability to write snappy headlines and relevant descriptions. Oh well, click here for lovely movie stuff.
Too Many Cookies
I’ll restrict myself to one Too Many Cooks parody this week, but really a parody of a parody is like watching a snake eat its own tail. That being said… Cookie Monster gets a free pass.
Revenge is a dish best served deeply sarcastically

Make your own Star Wars meme
It’s not like the Star Wars movies have great form in brilliant episode titles, but Episode VII: The Force Awakens is a bit of a clunker.
Luckily the internet is here to help. Click below to generate your own awesome title.
John Oliver’s finest moment
Shooting salmon at a host of celebrity faces.
