Funnies RSS

Laughter is the best medicine and our regular round-up of press and media funnies aims to put a smile on the most downcast of faces.

From amusingly misspelt headlines to double-entendres of the first degree, we want to feature them on this page.

We used to round them up into collections of ‘Friday Funnies’ and these can still be viewed here, but we will now be publishing them individually both here and on the site homepage.

If you spot one, tell us about it at editor.htfp@and.co.uk.
