So this week saw George Osborne release the “new living wage” for the UK. And it’s less than it was. And you think that would be enough to set Twitter on a meme spree but it was Ian Duncan Smith’s reaction to the announcement that really got everyone’s vilifying creative juices going.

Now prepare for the most “n’awwwww” inducing photos of your life! Her name is Luhu and her little eyes are fixed in a sad stance ever since an operation for an eye infection when she was just a kitten.

You know when you wish you had an Urban Dictionary + Vine combo app that you could check new lingo on? Your wish is granted, enter SayWhat. You can check definitions, rate them and upload new ones in video format (the process is very similar to Vine’s).
Imagine this, you can also access slang in Spanish or Mandarin should you come face to face with particularly peculiar phrasing whilst travelling! SayWhat’s definitions are fun to watch and the app is certainly a great new avenue for the non-camera shy out there.
When you search for a term you get all the uploaded videos existing under that term and you get to vote which is the best! Try it, it’s on fleek!

Dylan Marron, the writer and performer behind the project says “people who finance the movies are not going to want to throw millions behind a movie of a non-famous person of colour. There needs to be much more of a mix. Executives are so worried about losing money. [They] should rest more on amazing stories, and take a little more risk.”
