LOZ Wind Waker pig plushie! :D He stands at around 5 1/2 in. tall and is roughly 10 in. long. I used a pink fabric with a star indentation pattern for the body and the same fabric in a blue variation for the spots. His whole body is soft except for his poseable tail that has a wire instead of stuffing.
I’m taking orders for these fuzzy little guys now, and will soon have my shop up with all my available plushies!
President Obama is planning to nominate Samantha Power as America’s next ambassador to the United Nations. But why stop with just one perfectly-named appointment? All top government jobs should be filled by people with apt names:
NASA Administrator: Former Rep. Zach Space (D-OH)
White House Chief of Staff: Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)
National Institutes of Health Director: Rep. Tom Petri (R-WI)
Secretary of Defense: Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) or Princeton professor Anne-Marie Slaughter
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Director: Maxine Waters (D-CA)
Secretary of Energy: Current Transportation Secretary nominee Mel Watt (D-NC)
FDA Commissioner: Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH)
Secretary of Agriculture: National Security Adviser-to-be Susan Rice
Secretary of Education: Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT)
Voila: a bipartisan team born to do their jobs. You’re welcome, Mr. President.

Congratulations, Yahoo! You just paid ten bucks for a picture of Full House star Dave Coulier.
Irritating punctuation enthusiast Yahoo! recently agreed to pay $1.1 billion for popular blogging site/My Little Pony porn host Tumblr. This was big news for a couple of reasons. First of all, Yahoo! is not only apparently still a thing, but also somehow has a billion dollars to throw around. Secondly, a lot of experts have been questioning whether the deal makes good financial sense. Which of course is ridiculous — Tumblr has approximately 108 million blogs … that’s only about $10 a blog. And just look what they’re getting …
Anyone who’s traveled to popular touristic sites knows the feeling of being caught in the crossfire of countless camera lenses—the annoyed (and annoying) jockeying to capture the perfect shot…which in most cases looks exactly like everyone else’s. When we stumbled across Richard Silver’s photographs of iconic monuments, we were shocked—caught in the same tourist hustle, Silver manages to give us a new perspective on famous landmarks we didn’t think possible.

How to take the “monumental” out of the worlds monuments. Super cool.
