Chicken Stuff, Hop Wilson & His Chickens (1958) Harding Wilson (1921-1975) got his nickname from playing harmonica a lot as a kid – harp is pronounced hop in Texan. (Chicken stuff goes by another name there, too.) Pop Hop’s steel slide style influenced many other bluesmen.

4 year old Zoe Roth became a meme in 2008. She’s 21 now and $458,000 richer because of it.

One more thing to keep you awake at night.

This handsome boy is called a Demodex. Its dimensions are approximately 0.3mm, which means you can’t see it living on your face. Especially on your forehead, nose and chin. He’s always there and it will be that way forever. At night, they vigorously mate on your face and then lay its eggs in the pores of your skin. Funniest thing is that the Demodex have no anal orifice to evict. They accumulate and build up to death bursting with… feces. Right on the face. Sweet dreams everyone!

Dogman Comics

“Yeah he drew a Dog Man comic at the bottom of it too. 🤣
You think Harold cares? Harold doesn’t care.
Prob doesn’t even care that he went viral today.”

Found it here, and it made me angry (something similar happened to me when I was around that age) so I decided to do some restoration work and cancel the teacher.

Took me a while and I was happy at the result. Also found out that Dog Man Comics is written by the same guy who did Captain Underpants, and Harold’s been practicing. Check it out:

Nice work, Harold H., wherever you are. Keep it up.

Oh What A Baby, The Tonettes (1958)The Tonettes (aka The Claremonts) started out in the Bronx in 1957. Sisters Diana and Sylvia Sanchez were killing time when their TV crapped out and were harmonizing by the family piano when TV repairman and aspiring music biz impresario Lou Ezzo heard them. He convinced them to cut a demo session in 1957. Classmate Josie Allen completed the trio, and they had some success in the eastern U.S.
