British actor and star of the movies 'Dead Fish' and 'Tiptoes', Gary Leonard Oldman celebrates his 57th birthday today. Just as music producer George Martin vowed never to use the same sound twice, Gary Oldman stands by his decision to never wear the same haircut twice (unless it's a sequel).

The ultimate Pi Day

By +Ian C

Today is March 14th and this is the ultimate Pi Day, at least in our lifetime. Pi Day is a math phenomenon celebrated by geeks across the United States (it only works in the US and we will get into that shortly). The date 3/14/15 reflects the first few digits of the irrational constant Pi (π) which are 3.14159265359.

Friday 13th part VII

By +Alexa Rankin

This Friday 13th came round really quickly. It seems like only last month that Sue was inducted into the series of STP F13 posts. Essentially what we do for our F13 posts is regurgitate the same old story, but with a slightly different theme.

Top 10 stupid state laws - Arizona

By +Brad Naylor

Due to the success of the Rhode Island Dumb Laws post, I have decided to make it a recurring event, at least until I run out of States. Since I am running these in no particular order, the next State to get it's dumb laws scrutinized is Arizona. The state of Arizona has many dumb laws, but it also has one very smart one... No Daylight Savings Time, so no winding the clocks forward or backward twice a year.

Royal Baby II: Heir we go again

By +Sue Casa

William and Kate have been at it again and according to the the experts the second royal baby is due in April. Just like with the build up to Prince George's birth in 2013, nobody knows (or nobody is telling) what sex the little bundle of joy is; and the bookies are loving it. They are making millions of pounds from people betting on everything from birth date, weight, sex and even color of the unborn heir.

Male or Female? Place your bets.

What got slapped 12 months ago - March 2014

By +Tina Cruris

March is upon us already and here I am to recap the penguin slapping antics of yesteryear. Every month I guide our readers down memory lane, to a time when we did this job for love, and not just because we are contractually obliged to.

The concept of a reslap is simple, I highlight the top 5 stories from March 2014 for you to revisit at your convenience, so that you can contrast our current comedy stylings with that of 12 months ago and see how things have changed since last year. If you are feeling bored bold, you can check out the archives and dig even deeper into our history, but be warned, we were even funnier back then.

Have you ever wondered what Taylor Swift would look like if she was a man? 5 finalists have been selected for the world's weirdest Taylor Swift lookalike contest and we want your help to select the winner.
