The internet’s an odd place full of scary things defiant of all known logic. Tumblr, the photo and video blog hosting site, is stranger still if you look at how little of its output can actually be classified as morally or mentally sound. i.e. Here are the Tumblr blogs that you need to submit your brain to, in order to say you’ve lived – including a brilliant one of FIFA’s headline-storming Sepp Blatter.

Pretty self explanatory, really. We can only apologise for the fact that you’ll see this image whenever you close your eyes from now on. If you like funny faces, check out our Microsoft keynote funny faces gallery.
Cut your lunchtime sarnie in half and take a scan of the resulting cross-section. Simple. There’s something immensely satisfying about the neatness on show. We’ll update you when we know what.
And a bonus one…
