Silly Singing Season

People singing in a karaoke room.No, we're not going to make you stand up and do karaoke. But if you're like me, you go around with a song in your head at least some of the time. And it's August – definitely the silly season in the news world.

Bluebottle and Co are still being silly over at the Waterworks. They're inviting you to don swimsuits and join them – the water's fine, they say. Willem says, 'Everything is better with monkeys,' and I agree, so the quiz is bananas. Literally. Awix, about the only Post contributor who is working hard this summer, has sent us a review of a fine film from last year. He wants us to point out that it's his 248th edition special.

Bel asked, 'Is 248th significant?'

I replied, 'If Awix says it is, it is.'

See what I mean?

Of course, the Olympics continues in London – nothing silly about that, at all, right, Mr Bean? Our h2g2ers did Create proud, running, learning new sports, generally working up a lather, and then writing about it. Nosebagbear has the skinny on who did what. Check it out.

Some roam the world, some tend their own garden (thank you, Ramya). Some chat, and Geggs reports. Any way you look at it, there's lots to please in the selections below.

Keep cool, enjoy yourselves, and remember to tell us about it. With or without musical accompaniment. Check this week's Front Page for Create challenges – send in your favourite summer reading matter, and photograph Elton on his adventurous holiday.
