Floaty Croc + Balloon Dog + Flying Pig = Best Parade Ever

Guys, check out how awesome the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade used to be. (NOTE: For the record, I still think it's awesome and totally might go this year.)

These photos are from the New York Public Library archives and depict the 1932 Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Check out this little pig and tiny policeman/soldier guy boppin down the street! The balloons are so small!


Did this balloon fly away by accident? I can't even tell what it is. A cat? I think these pictures are so funny.

Check out this floaty guy! It looks like a little weird-shouldered monster, and then it looks like it's trying to King Kong the Empire State Building.

Good times. Remember how everyone in America got rickrolled on last year's parade? That ruled.

Did You Hear About the Bear Who Lost Her Hair?

Poor Dolores. This lil lady at Germany's Leipzig Zoo has lost her fur. And so have all the other bears at the zoo! And nobody knows why. Poor guys. I hope they make them little sweaters for winter.

Thanks to Anna for the tip!

Only the Best for Griswold

Griswold the Great Dane only likes the freshest sips. My cat Ruby is the same way, with the sink! Such discerning palates.

Bonus video: "Great Danes Standing Tall," a photo montage of exactly that. With a Kenny G soundtrack.

Thanks Francesca for the tip!

Mindblowing Murals

Yesterday when I went to vote at PS 38 in Brooklyn I encountered some truly Astounding Art in the auditorium. Each painting had a TotallyAwesome Title.

Here's a sampling:


How good is that fox-thing, right? Do foxes even live in the desert? Who cares!


Something's happening in these Himalayas, all right. A bad drug trip!!! Look at all those freaky animals!
