A Mexican woman wears a fabulous and fashionable hat made of live iguanas. Photographed by Mexico City-based photographer Graciela Iturbide in 1979.

I wonder if a hipster was sporting one of these hats at Coachella over the weekend? Probably.

Soon.

An interesting police report from Friday, April 19, in Steamboat Springs and Routt County, Colorado via Steamboat Today. I hate it when this happens… 

10:05 p.m. Police received a call from a woman who said her juvenile granddaughter was at the ski area last week and ran into a person who was selling bags of what she thought were portobello mushrooms dipped in chocolate for $30. Police said the granddaughter further informed her grandmother that giraffes were chasing her down the hill after she ate the mushrooms.

Brilliant: Cat scores a soap opera soundtrack (no, really!)

Soap Operas


 
Redditor PGERMS was crushin’ on a girl so hard that he made this utterly brilliant video for her. Apparently she mentioned the music in her favorite TV soap was so bad, her cat could have scored it. Well, PGERMS decided to test that theory “with great success.”

Here are a few choice responses in the reddit thread after folks watched it:

andehpandeh: “As a film composer, this makes me feel absolutely worthless to the world.”

Cyhawk: “I’m the guy who writes the music for soap operas. How do you think this makes ME feel? I should get this cat…”

Man buys toy poodles, discovers they’re actually ferrets on steroids

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before…

An Argentinian man goes to an outdoor market in Buenos Aires buying what he thinks are two adorable toy poodles, instead he purchases two ferrets pumped-up on steroids for $150.00 each.

The veterinarian informed him the ferrets “had been given steroids at birth to increase their size and then had some extra grooming to make their coats resemble a fluffy toy poodle.”

Amazing.

‘Bee Queen’ dances and sips tea while wearing 12,000 live honey bees

Bee Queen


 
Self-proclaimed “Bee Queen,” Sara Mapelli, does what comes to her naturally: Dancing around topless with over 12,000 bees.

I think of this dance as a duet among many. The bees push with their powerful wings from each side of my body, I resist and then I let go and flow and move with them. It is a deep meditation and I feel the hive mind surround me, hold me, and expand my body on a cellular level. I am a healer, dancer, artist, builder of structures and bee keeper.

Imma be honest here, this comes off a wee bit BATSHIT for my tastes, but who am I to pee in the Bee Queen’s honey pot? The bees certainly look like they’re enjoying themselves during tea time.

I hope you don’t think any less of me for posting a cute animal video. It’s something I never do, but good gawd I couldn’t resist sharing this with you, dear reader. Kind of a cool way to start off the day.

Deliverance doggy style.

I’m not a big “skull art” fan, but I dig this photograph of a wee butterfly (or is that a moth?) landing inside the eye socket of a human skull.

The image, by photographer Marko Popadic, is called Oko (Polish for “eye”).

What I learned from this video: Never ever, under any circumstances, call a cow or a bull “bro” ‘cause things will turn all Blair Witch Project real fast.

Warning: Dead cow carcass and some F-bombs.

Oh for the love of all that is good in the world, it’s Jonathan Richman and Lil Bub

Richman and Bub
Don’t you love it when wonderful people find each other? Bub’s dude said “They telepathically shared meditation techniques”. Of course they did.
 
Of all the proto-punk auteurs and of all the famous Internet cats, there is no more potent combination that that of Jonathan Richman and Lil Bub.

There will be an impulse by many to infantilize this moment in glorious Internet cat/music history, the famously earnest Richman, Lil Bub with her adorable physical anomalies. But I maintain this is no less than a beacon! A sign that there is goodness in this world, and that we’re just beginning to live.
