1. From the London team: This Is How Lesbians Have Sex

This post finally answers a burning (ha!) question that has mystified society for ages. Per Luke: "Flo is doing more in the way of original illustrations. Her tongue-in-cheek lesbian sex guide was funny, and distinctive, and did 2m views!"

2. From the Mumbai team: 23 Pictures Only Gujjus Will Understand

Nirali's deft exploration of the cultural idiosyncrasies of gujjus -- aka people from the great state of Gujrat, India -- is a tour de force of puns. As she says: "SpongeBob is literally a dhokla." Truer words were never spoken.
