Forget the credit crunch, the environment, corruption in the House of Lords and badly punctuated protesters outside oil refineries: IT'S SNOWING!
Yes, it's snowing, which means that all national news broadcasts are dominated by pictures of children having snowball fights and crazy estimates from GCSE-level economists about how the weather has cost Xmillion pounds in lost production. Unless the snow falls outside London, in which case we just wear an extra pair of socks and get on with it.
SNOW: a fantastic medium for japery! Such as this snow penguin sent to us today by a mysterious but no-doubt excellent-on-toast correspondent known only as Covered_in_jam:

- Unfair on our Antipodean cousins.
Quick! Before it melts!
