My personal highlight of this year’s London Marathon was that in the women’s race someone called Edna came first and someone called Florence came second.

My personal highlight of this year’s London Marathon was that in the women’s race someone called Edna came first and someone called Florence came second.

Kenya’s Edna Kiplagat beat Florence Kiplagat in a sprint finish.

It’s just hard to imagine women called Edna and Florence being able to sprint anywhere, never mind run 26 miles before they started sprinting. I just really hope someone called Albert or Norris wins the men’s race next year.
n US actor Rob Lowe has claimed there is an ‘unbelievable bias against good-looking people’ in the acting world which stops them from being offered interesting roles.

I have to say I think he’s wrong.

It’s not that people are biased against good-looking actors – I think the problem is good-looking actors end up having so much Botox to keep their looks that they can’t do emotions.

n Researchers in America have found that procrastination is a genetically inherited trait.

I assume it’s not passed down from father to son.

Because it’s the procrastination gene, I reckon it delays and delays and then it passes on from grandfather to grandson.

See what I did there?

n The first cloned dog in Britain has made its debut.

Apart from wanting to have your favourite dog around for longer, I couldn’t see any advantage to actually having a cloned dog at all, especially when it’s so easy to get hold of the same breed as your last one.

I reckon it’s only the 
dog you clone that gets anything out of the deal, here’s why.

If you clone a dog then that dog is going to find it a hell of a lot easier to catch its tail when chasing it.

At the moment, it’s impossible, but with a clone of yourself running around it should be a lot simpler.
