That is, of course, the striking resemblance it bears to the "Distracted Boyfriend" meme which has been ubiquitous in social media in the past couple of years.

It was not long before one Reddit user turned the picture into a meme itself, showing how people online tend to be more interested in older memes.

Friday 03:19 GMT

A federal judge has completely barred former Trump political adviser Roger Stone from speaking publicly about his ongoing prosecution on obstruction and false statement charges, following a hearing on Thursday in which Stone took the stand to insist he was "heartfully sorry" for the picture of the judge that appeared on his Instagram showing what seemed to be crosshairs in the background.

The speck of a moon, no more than 21 miles across, hurtles around the distant gas giant at about 20,000 miles an hour, 10 times faster than our own moon circles Earth, scientists said.

The scientists first saw the moon in enhanced images from the Hubble space telescope, which showed the tiny body 65,000 miles away from Neptune. “This is the smallest known moon around the farthest known planet in the solar system,” said Mark Showalter, a senior research scientist at the Seti Institute, in Mountain View, California.

Pixy Liao's best photograph: eating a papaya off my boyfriend's crotch

Friday 06:04 GMT

I had in mind Nobuyoshi Araki’s famous photograph of a woman sitting on a street corner, eating from a broken watermelon on the ground beside her.

I’ve been at exhibition openings where someone has commented that I’m the lady in the photograph, and they’ve asked Moro if he’s the photographer.
