You know the saying, "War and Peace go together like birds of a feather". 

Birds have lots of feathers, you see, and a bird would not actually be legally called a bird if it had no feathers... Which is a lot like war and peace when you think about it. I mean, when you really think about it. 

Can you ever truly have peace without having some war? Does war inevitably always lead to peace? Is there a bird that exists in the wild...

Andy Pandy, aged 20¼
Tuesday 19th November, 1805
Bilibin's house, Brunn, Austria

Dear Diary, I'M SO EXCITED I CAN BARELY SLEEP! Tomorrow I'm going to see the Emperor (finally!) and I'm going to tell him all about my amazing victory! I've brushed my whole uniform so I'll look 'totally on fleek as heck' (that's one of my fresh new epigrams I'm trying to coin haha). 

Bilibin is a really cool guy act...

We've all seen The Mighty Ducks or that film with the bobsleighs or that one with all the karate kicking... 

You know how it goes. Just as it looks like you'll never be able to bobsleigh really well, or do the best karate kick at the karate kick competition, a montage sequence begins to play. Eye of Tiger is turned up to 10 and then, without warning, your team of ducks perform the best karate kick the world has ever seen!

You know the feeling - you've got half a dozen flat screen TVs strapped to your horse, a sack of bargain quinoa on your back, and a massive smile on your face - you absolutely smashed Black Friday and now you're on your way home for a relaxing beef tea.

That's when you stop. Your eyes go wide. Darren lets out an uneasy snort.

As 12 TVs fall to the floor, and quinoa fills the street you realise you've made a huge mis...

Your excitement is palpable; you've shaved, brushed your teeth and slathered yourself in the finest perfume money can buy. 

Holding your head high you take your place in the queue. You want that discount ham. You deserve it! You have a drink to steady your nerves. 

The queue grows uncontrollably. People appearing as if from nowhere. The crush begins. You try to escape but you're stuck!

That's when the first cannon ball fli...

Waging a successful military campaign isn't just about shiny buttons, impressive marching formations, and ensuring your troops are incredibly rested and relaxed. 

Sometimes you need an extra special something to turn your fighting boys into fighting men... sometimes you need Pies. Yes, pies.

The Russian army sure know how to throw a parade - but was spending all that time changing coats and polishing penknives really the brilliant strategic manoeuvrer it first seemed?

Join us this week as we turn on the slow motion camera to watch the hobbledehoy slowly move toward the fan, then actually hit the fan, then spread horrible, sticky hobbledehoy absolutely everywhere.

What happens next could be horribledehoy, it could be happ...

Just like your favourite boomerang, we are back! 

Dust off your WAP-WAPPY-WAP Quote Book, plump up your favourite War and Peace themed pillow, pop on your velvet listening cape and get ready for Book 2 of the greatest novel of all time!

We've had enough parties to make even Miley Cyrus throw in the towel. Now, it's time for War... 

Well, perhaps not quite yet, but we are with some soldiers and they have some really bad booties...

Vigorously boil your eggnog, put a mince pie in EACH hand, and get ready to experience yet another literary classic from Leo Tolstoy. 

This week we're digging deep into the Leo library to bring you one of the lesser-known Tolstoy classics - his Christmas fable 'The Young Tsar'.

A young man has just ascended to the throne, he's making laws left right and centre, but why is everyone so drunk, and are all these floggings...

It's dinner time at Nasty Nick's house and there's a politely sneezing architect at the main table... We know you'll find that hard to believe. 

"A lowly architect eating his dinner at the MAIN TABLE, WHY WHY WHY?!" 

 We're just as repulsed and sickened as you are. 

Tune in this week to find out who's the biggest powder monkey and what's so special about this awful architect.

If you're familiar with British TV from the early 2000s, no doubt at this moment you have a shiver descending down your spine. 

As adrenaline floods your body and a scream emerges from your mouth, you'll be remembering Nasty Nick - the Big Brother contestant who was so, so very nasty that they added the word 'Nasty' to his name to show how nasty he was.

What's the best letter you've ever read?  Well, multiply that by a relatively large number because this letter is a serious letter and boy does it pack one hell of a punch!

But wait! Before you can read that special letter you'll need to dust off your calculator and geometry textbook... it's time for a maths lesson, from the world's busiest man. 

Don't be late.

We've been in the bedroom, and boy what a bedroom that bedroom was. 

Join us this week as we stand outside the bedroom once again, looking back at that closed door, remembering the endless columns and beguiling carpet.

But as the memory of that extraordinary room teases our senses, we remember something else. Something stranger. Something unsettling. 

What exactly were Vassily and Katishe doing as they stumbled across that carpet ...

Remember that letter? Whomever possess it will be rewarded more serfs and rubbles than is even possible to calculate. Trust us, we tried and the numbers got so high we just sort of stopped. 

Well, it's back and someone wants it. Surely no one would have the gaul to pull off the letter heist of the century during your first ever Unction?! 

Dust off your Persian wall rugs, pour yourself a cup of steaming beef tea and get ready. It ...

Who gets the inheritance? What’s an Unction? Who’s taller (in hams of course), Tom Cruise or Danny DeVito? Find out the answer to ONE of these questions in this w...

There's an uncle in the bedroom, we all know that, but what the hell has he been doing in there?

What we do know: he's really, really rich and he's really, really ill - and as if that wasn't enough, he has at least one bedroom. 

This week, we're not going in the bedroom (why would we!), but boy are we finding out more about the man with the bedroom, the things he has in his bedroom, and what he's been doing in...
