I’ll Hold Your Cane If You’ll Hold My AT-AT

Because also fictional characters get old, and because when we non-fictional characters getting old, it doesn’t mean we lose our sense of humor!

Snowy Bunny Street Art in Finland

One of Finnish photographer Minna Koponen’s projects involves the unlikely combination of street art, snow and bunnies. During winters 2012 and 2015, Ms. Koponen created these adorable, cartoony outlines of face-plant bunnies out of snow and plastered them on trees, buildings and other public spaces.

Ms. Koponen calls her creations Crash Test Bunnies, and aims to create good cheer and to bring something surprising and refreshing to the urban environment. There are more photos on her site.

Because art need not be stuffy nor elitistic! (And bunnies rule!)

Restaurant Owner Adds More Skin, Donates Proceeds to Rape Info Services

After a customer review requested that servers at Atomic Grill in Morgantown, West Virginia, show more skin, owner Daniel McCawley decided to add more skin to the menu. His restaurant is now offering a potato skin special (through Memorial Day), and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information Services.

According to Mr. McCawley,

“[i]t was brutish. I was upset. I’m a father of a 12-year-old girl and I’ve got five sisters,” […] “The way that women are treated is pretty personal as far as I’m concerned.”

(Quote from an ABC News article by Stefanie Tuder.)

Kudos!

Because speaking out matters, and speaking out with humor is even better.
