Post-It Stop Motion. BigHappyVideo.com: Latest Video Laughs

Video Funnies
Recently we've been transfixed by two great art-inspired works - the excellent Post-It Stop Motion video and the bizarre How It Would Be, If A House Was Dreaming.

Diary: Dick Turpin's approach to the afterlife represents the way forward for our supernatural friends

The legendary highwayman turned up in the news the other day as the one and only ghost of a British airport. They say Turpin was a bright spark and it takes some mean intelligence for a character from the 18th century to be conversant with 21st century air travel and the 100ml liquid allowance.

What's more, he was canny enough to ride on past Stansted, near where he grew up, and plump for the easier-to-hide mess of Heathrow.

Rival London ghosts need to get with the programme. For ghouls, it's all about location and, come on, it's a bit boring to haunt the place you called home. Yes, I'm wailing at you Elizabeth I for staying put in Hampton Court and you Samuel Pepys. Why stick with your old Westminster home when you could be haunting the pubs around the House of Commons, picking up titbits for your blog?

Obviously, for the rest of us, it's good news the Supernats stay put. The Tube is crowded enough as it is, but underneath the Underground there are countless Plague Pits, full of grey-featured, glum-faced skeletons itching to emerge into the light to tell the world they were forced out before their time. That's Gordon Brown's resting place sorted out, anyway.
