Photo of the Day

From the Telegraph's Pictures of the Day for 9 November 2012: A Lord of the Rings fan has built a Hobbit Hole from 2,600 balloons. Jeremy Telford, 34, spent 40 hours over three days inflating the balloons using a hand-pump. And, thanks to a very understanding wife, the Tolkien fan was able to build the structure in his living room in Pleasant Grove, Utah. [Jeremy Telford / Rex Features]
If Telford's "very understanding wife" managed to stay uninvolved in this project, I would be highly impressed. There's no way this level of nerdery could be going on at Shakes Manor without both of us having our noses way the hell up in it!
