 Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!

Nothing too spooky today, but in the course of March Mammal Madness, we discovered this amazing site which takes you below the sea - really, really deep below the sea. I had no oiea emperor penguins could dive so deep. Keep scrolling!

Hello and happy March! You know what that means around here - sporadic updates, due to March Mammal Madness (and look, even the Washington Post is reporting on it). We'll do our best to post links, but it will be crazy around here until April.

From Zazoo: Check out the Van Gogh installation coming to NYC!

Also from Zazoo: Jim Henson's early commercials for Wilkins Coffee are going viral. (I love that first commercial. It's one of my all time favorites.)
