Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps recorded “Catman” in 1957. [Here are the lyrics so you can sing along.]

The Ramones capitalized on The Stance.

This is the Ideal Store.

Rollin’ Wild is a cool site with animation shorts filled with spherical animals, like this one.

This is pretty trippy [via].

Omphalophobes can be repulsed just by seeing or thinking about a belly button. Other rare phobias listed here.

Apparently anthropomorphic global warming existed before anthropomorphs did. Dinosaur skulls have been found as far north as what is now Alaska (which in the Cretaceous Period was mostly within the Arctic Circle). Pachyrhinosaurus is now my favorite Sauropod. What did they do in the Arctic darkeness?

Corey Hart sends mixed messages and I have no idea who he is.

Dog likes to watch “Planet Earth” on TV [via].

Happy Fathers’ Day to all Fathers who ever Fathered. To you Proto-Fathers and Fathers-In-Training, your prime responsibility is to Father forever more.

Happy Father’s Day

Sunday, 17 June 2012

After his wife died giving birth to their sixth child, Civil War vet Henry Jackson Smart was left to raise the litter all by himself. Imagine, if you will, what the average day was like for Henry: six kids of varying age screaming, kicking the crap out of each other, wetting the bed, refusing to eat their vegetables. It was hard on the single father until he found himself a worthy partner to alleviate the stresses of child-rearing: beer, and lots of it.

Fueled by the saintly patience only good ale can provide, Henry did such a good job with the kids that he inspired his daughter, Sonora Smart Dodd, to organize the first Father’s Day on June 19th, 1910. Fourteen years later, President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day, and Nixon, established it as a permanent day of national observance in 1972.
