I thought I had seen the pinnacle of animals invading sporting events with the Blackburn Rovers chicken (and before that, the Anfield cat!) but nay, there are (luckily) many more.

From the Department of Inspiration: "As part of their "Make THE Difference" campaign, TMB Bank shares a story of a group of kids that didn't let something silly like living on a floating island in the middle of the sea get in the way of their love for soccer."

Check out Nick Veasey's amazing X-ray photography of plants and animals and all manner of things (that are not human).

Oh, so that's why cars in horror movies never start the first time … Makes sense.

By now you've probably seen those mock-ups of President Obama riding a unicorn, but where did it come from? The art department of the local newspaper I work for, that's where! Congrats John Yardley - you have gone viral!

An interesting look back - So whatever happened to plasma TVs? Did LCD win?

From Drew, "This is the most random, mindless entertainment I've found on the Internet." It truly is. And yet … there I was playing with it for longer than I should have …!

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
