A Japanese single malt whisky has been declared the world's best by Whisky Magazine. It's the first time a distiller outside Scotland has won the prize. And in other news, the International Haggis Foundation received its first shipment of 2,000 kimonos, and uncountable amounts of sake.

Peru is slowly reclaiming its place as the potato capital of the world. It's 10,000 hectare Potato Park is home to over 600 varieties of potatoes. This is timely, as it comes in line with the UN declaration of 2008 as the Year of the Potato. Seriously, none of that was made up.

Yesterday America celebrated National Cubicle Day. Celebrated? Absolutely. You mean you don't throw daily three o'clock parties at your four by four with 18 strippers, a Yo La Tengo cover band and your line manager doing the limbo? No wonder you hate your job.
