Picture this: That's how I like my fairy tales; with a good dose of realism and a dash of humour. In the photo series, Fallen Princesses, photographer Dina Goldstein depicts the ladies of Disney in less romantic scenarios...

They printed what? Glad they cleared that up...

Quick clip: Wish I could parallel park as effortlessly as this...

Quick clip (the sequel): Speed bump overkill?

Local: The only way to know if you've got your head around the new Give Way rules and know you are safe to go out on New Zealand roads on March 25 is to take this quiz

Another great book is turned into a film...Where's Waldo is now a major motion picture. "This summer, Waldo finds YOU!"

Interesting: The Anti-Flirt Club was an genuine club during the early 1920s America used to protect young women and girls who received unwelcome attention from men in car and on street corners. The club rules were awesome. (Don't fall for the slick, dandified cake eater, ladies)

Picture this: Real life barbie (The face, not the bosom/waist ratio)

In case you missed it: Post last week's weather bomb eels can be seen swimming through the streets of Masterton. But Jermaine Kerehi's commentary, channelling Samuel L Jackson in Snakes on a Plane, is the real winner of this video. (NSFW language)

Video: One of those awful, overly long home shopping TV ads (this one for a lint remover called Sticky Buddy) is re-dubbed with a new much funnier voiceover. (Warning there are a couple of sweary-type words)
