Happy Friday, and May the Fourth be with you! 

From Julie: Speaking of Star Wars, have you seen the plethora of Yoda-like creatures in medieval manuscripts? Seven hundred years old, he truly is!

Also from Julie: A postcard allegedly written by Jack the Ripper made a mint at auction.

Also also from Julie (thanks so much for sending all these great links, Julie!): “Corn much higher than an elephant’s eye,” thanks to an ingenious agricultural scientist!

March Mammal Madness may be over, but the alt-champion tardigrade (also known as TardiGandalf) is still winning over hearts and artists – take a look at the new swag available! 

Have a safe and spiffy weekend, everyone. See you next week.
