We can only wonder what’s wrong with you and Clay Groves if you don’t enjoy A Flock of Seagulls. It’s the cheesiest 80’s new wave ever and it’s delightful. Courtesy of YouTube user aFlockofSeagulls:

London traffic cameras are getting photobombed by Steve and Graeme. Article courtesy of techtimes.com

Hello it’s ten minutes after four and this is Steve with a look at the traffic. Right now traffic is really backed up southbound on the A102. Apparently me, Graeme and approximately 300 of my friends have found an open bag of Sun Chips on the roadway. We’ll let you know as soon as that clears up. News at 11.
