In our latest trawl across the world-wide web, we happen upon some adventurous freeriding, a stuttering rap, an easily pleased baby and a really big bat…
Ticket To Ride
As the old song goes, we’re kicking off our boots and going back to our roots as we join in on an audacious journey with Freeride Entertainment.

"The bat is around 45 feet long and six feet in width and is easily enough the biggest cricket bat built in the world," said a rather proud student spokesman.
There was just one hitch, however. The day before the bat was unveiled, students in Karachi, Pakistan, revealed they too had decided to inspire their team to success by building a giant wooden bat. And theirs was 50 feet long! Howzat for a kick in the googlies?

The YouTube clip which has had more than 4 million views so far proves that a baby’s laughter is better than any job offer – well, almost.
The King’s Speech - Remixed
After romping home with an armful of Oscars, some bright spark decided to pay homage to The King’s Speech with a clever mix featuring some of cinema’s most prolific stutterers. And before you ask, yes, Porky Pig is in there…
