There have been some ups and downs, but these are the ones we won't forget

When kids got their own back on Michelle Obama

In 2014 good-natured First Lady of the US Michelle Obama did her bit for waistlines of the US by helping to get people eating more veg. She also campaigned hard to get school lunches straightened out. Unfortunately this backfired a little when US school kids began tweeting pics of their sad looking meals with the sarcy hashtag #thanksmichelleobama.

When a woman saved herself from danger by ordering pizza

When 911 operator Keith Weisinger received a call from a victim of domestic violence, he shared the unusual exchange on Reddit:


"I’d like to order a pizza for delivery.”
“Ma’am, you’ve reached 911” (Oh great, another prank call)
“Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?”

“Ummm…. I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?”
“Yeah, do you know how long it will be?”
“Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? do you have an emergency?”
“Yes, I do.”
“..And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you?” (Moment of realisation)
“Yes, that’s correct. Do you know how long it will be?”
“I have an officer about a mile from your location. Are there any weapons in your house?”
“Can you stay on the phone with me?”
“Nope. See you soon, thanks.”


That's some seriously quick thinking right there.

When the food world of food mashups got out of hand

It's been a bit of a strange year for reinventing the wheel food wise. We've freaked out on frankenpastries and become rather keen on extreme burgers like this double donut monstrosity.

First it was the lowly cronut, then the Ramen Burger, then the wonut (a waffle and a donut), the 'crownie' (a cookie and a brownie), the duffin (a doughnut/muffing) and by far the most eye rolling of them all: the 'cragel'. That's right folks, a cross between a croissant and a bagel. Life is never simple is it?

When Ed Miliband couldn't eat a bacon sandwich 

If there's one thing David Cameron learned from Pasty Gate it's that a food based gaff is a politicians nightmare. Labour leader Ed learned this the really hard way when he tried and failed to look 'at one' with the plebs by eating a bacon sandwich.

...and it broke the internet

Naturally, he immediately became an internet meme. Oh, Ed.
