First up, there is this NHS-sanctioned treat featuring a talking hand, complete with googly eyes and woolly hair.
I've seen managers not hire a woman because the environment is mostly male, and they're worried that no matter how smart or talented she is, she won't fit in.

2. The repetitive one
One of the more unique games announced at Gamescom was Silent Hills, the latest sequel in Konami’s bestselling horror franchise (which has also spawned two films).

4. The Wiggles' handwashing song
This has happened elsewhere.
The National Basketball Association (NBA) Global Games is to feature two pre-season games in China between the Golden State Warriors and the Minnesota Timberwolves, the NBA announced.
That possibility was backed up by a list of top-tier cities the statistics bureau began tracking recently
