While the bread and butter of Gizmodo UK is in the bits and bytes of technology, we have a lot of fun in the off-topic areas, with many of the stories being filed in the WTF category. Bookmark this page for the sillier stories, from ridiculous examples of body-art, to... sausages made of skittles?
The European Union has been sort of a cluster-doodie this last couple of weeks, but at least they're not lobbing tear gas canisters at each other. South Korean Parliament on the other hand? Not so much.
Microsoft is trying to hire new employees by luring them with god's greatest creation, the devil's most delicious treat and man's greatest love: bacon. They've set up a bacon cart (!) outside of Amazon's offices and will give away free bacon to everyone. EAT BACON, WORK MICROSOFT.

Ouch. Sting's free iPad app celebrating 25 years of squawking, apparently cost in the millions of dollars to make. The app combines music, concert footage, photographs and video, with a recording of Sting's October performance in the New York Beacon Theatre.

Marta Yegorovnam, who I'm assuming is either a lunatic or an evil prankster, says she has kept an alien corpse in her refrigerator for two years. Apparently, she found this green alien after a UFO crashed right outside her house.
The Facebook wall is our social document of record. Etched in rock like an Attic tablet, the things said on a wall provide a poignant look back at who said what, and when. Not anymore. Timeline lets you rewrite history.
