London Marathon Runner in Big Ben Outfit Too Tall for Finish Line

You get to the finish. And you realize. You've failed to check the height requirement for the finish line. Goodbye, personal record. For more fails from the wide world of sports, here are some sports fails to make you feel alright about not being an athlete.

We're All Deeply Confused By This Horse That Was Photographed Entering a Bus In London

It's not every day you see a horse making moves at entering a double-decker bus in London...or like anywhere for that matter. The horse was photographed by politician Simon Crowcroft while he was out on a road in London. Before mass hysteria set in amongst, well everyone, a TfL Bus Alerts Twitter account was able to try and bring some clarity to the situation.

People of London were absolutely horrified to see these buttons with the words "Tube chat?" popping up all over the place. The source, according to Mashable, turned out to be a man named Jon Dunne and his wife, both from small towns in America and now living in London. He told them, "I thought it would be way more fun [but] it was sort of brutal." 

No kidding, the response to #tubechat has been hilarious but not very welcoming.

All of the Advertisements in a London Tube Station Were Just Replaced With Pictures of Cats and the Reason Why Is Fantastic

The Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS) just replaced all of the adverts in a London tube station with pictures of cats. Why? "Wouldn't it be great not to worry about the holiday we can't afford, the car we don't need, or the body we don't have? Imagine a world where public spaces made you feel pawsitive." That's why!

A 5 year old girl noticed that there are plenty of police dogs, but not any police cats and she wanted to know why. So she wrote to her local police headquarters to get answers. The chief responded with a sweet note and a drawing of his own cat for good measure. Yeah, this story is adorable.

Last November this cat set the internet ablaze after being spotted on a supermarket shelf in South London, with an unparalleled pokerface.

Well, this cat's back. Yes, the exact same one, in the exact same store.

Here's the photo from last November, in which he's wearing the same don't-fu*k-wit-me expression.

It's time for Sainsbury to face the cold, hard, and definitely furry truth; this cat ain't going anywhere.

National Health Services (NHS) worker Kara Florish took to Twitter to document receiving a body-image shaming business card on London's Underground.

The card, which states to be from a group called "Overweight Haters Ltd", reads "fat" in large letters on one side. The other side contains a paragraph with a description of the "organization".

Writer Sean Thomas Knox witnessed a similar, separate body-shaming card incident, and tweeted about it's authenticity.



British Transport Police on Twitter are asking anyone with any information to get in touch with them.
