When the world is feeling bleak, a little laughter can lighten the load. And thankfully, the internet delivered during the UK’s first working week in lockdown.
Here are seven utterly ridiculous posts we’ve seen that made us smile – or caused uncontrollable giggling.
We hope they’ll give you a slice of that feel good Friday feeling. Enjoy!
This rendition of ‘I will survive’
Metallic leotard: check. Sweary self-deprecation: check. References to the gin we’re all necking: check. This video by blogger Victoria Emes has everything – three cheers for DJ Sara Cox for helping it reach thousands.
This super impressive Mousetrap setup
You think it’s over, but then the Mousetrap setup from YouTuber Joseph’s Machines just keeps on giving. Top marks for including the baby. RIP that laptop.

This family of jokers
It took an unexpected turn – and we loved it.
