Here are some of this month's happy distractions.
What do Swedish people think of the Swedish chef? The answer is fascinating.
A Detroit art movement that is equal parts Mickey Mouse and Mrs. Havisham. I can't stop looking.
Next time you are at the bookstore, check out I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats, by the hilarious Francesco Marciuliano. I bought two copies thinking one would make a great gift, but apparently Lola had other plans (read: she ate it).
What the? There is a hotel in Kenya where the giraffes come in and eat croissants off your breakfast plate. REAL CROISSANTS, PEOPLE.
Yarn bombing is over, but zip tie bombing is coming to a street light near you!
How does one preserve a 25-year-old cheese ball in resin? Now you know.
This might just be the holy grail of portrait painting.
I want my epitaph carved out in this font (and it's free, woot.)
They made a movie about butter sculpting with Ty Burrell. It's like Hollywood crawled up my nose and read my mind.
For Time Lords and those who love them: a virtual fruit salad of Doctor Who themed propaganda prints and original art. Nerdtastic!
