Not only is it Links from Others Day, it's Bunny's birthday! Happy birthday to my spooky librarian partner. Love you lots! (It is also the birth date of Isaac Newton, Louis Braille and Michael Stipe, among others. Bunny is in good company.)

From the birthday man himself: a band consisting of a six-year-old and a 13-year-old named The Death Killers. Fun stuff.

From Dawnowar: Awesome sock puppet portraits!

From Cassandra: Cool winking skulls! Strange experiments on stressed-out squirrels! Terrifying statistics on gendercide! The UK's latest debate on legalizing ecstasy!

Also from Cassandra: the sad and surprising news that the Vatican Observatory is to be closed. This ties in somewhat with a link sent in from the Graveworm on alleged exorcism squads that are being formed in Rome. Really? (I know we have at least one priest among Folderol's readership. Send me the scoop!)

Probably sacrilegious, but also nerd-tastic and funny in several places: the LOLcats rewrite the Bible.

And finally, here's the best 60 seconds you will see on the web today. Click on the link, then sit back and wait for a few seconds. It's even better with the sound turned up!

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday!

Happy Birthday, Bunny! Make sure Jinnet remembers to give you your presents from me. There are two-one for when you are feeling divine, the other for your snarky self. You know, Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. You are SO complex!

Thanks Cassandra darling! Much appreciated. I'm currently writing this from my garbage pail (aka work) so Oscar is oddly appropo. :)
