Your Pets

In March ArchBlog will be launching a special new feature ... 'Your Pets.' The feature will feature your pets. Like Ronseal, it does exactly what it says on the tin.
Debut cover boy will be Will & Annie's hot dog Hector.
Until then cute addicts will have to make do with these awesome seal stamps.

Baby Gaga breast milk ice cream

Great news! At last breast milk ice cream is finally on sale in London. Per a press release send out by Taylor Herring this morning, "The ice-cold breast milk concoction, dubbed the Baby Gaga, will be available from tomorrow (Friday 25th February) to ice-cream lovers at the Icecreamists restaurant in Covent Garden."

The new burlesque-themed (seriously) Icecreamists parlour sourced the breast milk from cash-hungry volunteers found on the Mumsnet internet forum. Each donor received £15 for every ten ounces of milk extracted by breast pumps.

Victoria Hiley, 35, from London donated a total of 30 fluid ounces of breast milk to the restaurant after seeing the Mumsnet ad: "What could be more natural than fresh, free-range mother’s milk in an ice cream?," she asked. "And for me it’s a recession beater too – what’s the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash? I tried the product for the first time today – it’s very nice it really melts in the mouth. I teach women how to get started on breast feeding their babies. There's very little support for women and every little helps. I'm passionate about the good that breast feeding does for babies."

"No-one's done anything interesting with ice cream in the last hundred years," said modest founder Matt O'Connor, who (actually) added "I had a Baby Gaga just this morning and I feel great.”

Ripple sole

Dig the soles on these quirky, horrendously expensive Inventory x Viberg ripple sole oxfords. That said, I'm not sure how practical they'd be for long-muddy walks in Wiltshire. Or playing squash.

Usman 'Uzzy' Ahmed shows how not to a) enter a boxing ring b) box

True, boxers need self-confidence. But one gets the impression that Uzzy borders on the over-confident at times:

How to look good at a street protest: Egyptian helmets

Revolutions always throw up awesome new looks and Egypt's Nile revolution is no different. Hot outta Cairo's Tahrir Square comes some rock-solid headwear fashions. ArchBlog's personal favourite has to be the baguettes 'cap' the portly old geezer is rocking. The saucepan and lifejacket combo is also a fierce look. Isabella Blow must be turning in her grave.

Onion mugs

Message mugs are usually ghastly. The worst ones say stuff like 'World's Best Dad' or 'Chelsea's Number One Sopporter.' But this effort from the ONION is up ArchBlog's strasse. It's only ten bucks and, per the ONION's Twitter feed, you can get 30% off if you enter the code 'CAFFEINE'
And here's a good one for all the senior management types who read this blog. "Make yourself feel powerful while making fun of your intern," promises the ONION blurb:

Daddy Freddy breaking records

Plenty to admire here but the lady presenter (name?) dancing has to be the highlight. Right? Make sure to watch until the end. For the official counter's garms are pretty special.

If cannabis is a gateway drug for hard drugs then this is the gateway drug for cannabis. Leave a normal child in a room for one minute with this and they'll be roaching their Mr Bounce book to skin up a phat L by the time you rtn ...

Kate and Wills rip off Sylvanian Families

There's been some really nasty stuff in the UK meedjah recently suggesting that some savvy entrepreneurs are going to try and cash in on the Royal Wedding by flogging poorly made tat to over-excited (American) fans. While I'm sure they'll be the odd Prince William and Kate Middleton mug popping up in some of those great gift shops on Bayswater, I'm sure it will all be top quality merch. Why do the papers have to hate so much?


What has flown under the radar is how Wills and Kate have totes copied Sylvanian Families. When you dig down into the hard details (below), you quickly realise just how close Wills and Kate's nuptial celebrations are to what Sylvanian Families have been cooking up for donkeys (and way before Wills even clapped eyes on Kate).

BEFORE the Royal Wedding, it just so turns out Sylv Fams are launching their very own Wedding Set "complete with William Balmoral (groom) and his beautiful bride Catherine. This shining couple will exchange their vows in front of the Reverent Kelvin Waters, surrounded by the gorgeous bridesmaids Amelia and Louise and cheeky little page boy James."

Can you actually believe the similarities??? Kate and Wills have clearly stolen Sylvanian Families Wedding Set's names. Scandal! Kate and Wills should be ashamed of themselves. They've basically copied everything Sylv Fams already had on ice.

ArchBlog is no longer interested in the Royal Wedding.

The Sylvanian Families Wedding set will be available from Early April and costs just £24.99.
