With concern for Fabrice Muamba’s welfare subsiding, the police have formally announced that the search is already underway for those who must have prayed that he suddenly collapse with a heart condition in order for it to happen in the first place. ‘Now that the prayers of the nation have done their job in assisting the hospital’s otherwise ineffective doctors, nurses, paramedics and sophisticated intensive care apparatus, it’s time to turn our attention to catching those who prayed for Muamba’s near-fatal collapse.’ said Detective Inspector Simon Rogers, heading up the investigation.

A book written by Jerry Beck in 1994 called The 50 Greatest Cartoons: As Selected by 1,000 Animation Professionals does indeed contain a list of the 50 greatest cartoons as chosen by industry professionals. The list is filthy with Warner Bros cartoons, particularly by the recently aforementioned Chuck Jones (four of the top five are by Jones). I don’t know how many are available on YouTube, but I tracked down a couple to show my 4-year-old son, Ollie: Duck Amuck and Rabbit of Seville.
By the time we were finished with Rabbit of Seville, Ollie had literally peed his pants from laughing so hard. I think I’m gonna get the Looney Tunes collection on Blu-ray so we can watch more but I’m a bit afraid of what the hijinks of Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner might do to my boy’s pants.Tags: best of cartoons Chuck Jones Jerry Beck lists TV

As part of the redevelopment of the Park Hill flats in Sheffield, Urban Splash, (responsible for work on The Midland Hotel in Morecambe), have preserved a piece of graffiti that has appeared on one of the walkways for many years.
Unfortunately the story of the message isn’t without its sadness.

I know it’s not quite t-shirt weather yet, but this Adidas Munich 1972 t-shirt will probably be sold out when it is.The minimalist and indeed modernist design is straight out of the Olympic archives, featuring the official Otl Aicher-designed logo from the 1972 games, as well as the font used for the event. That event was noted for its design leanings - we’ve featured posters from the Munich Olympics in the past.
The shirt is made of 100 per cent jersey cotton and is yours for £35.
