Overnight Open Thread

What, again no basketball thread? Did you guys do something to piss off Dave?


Peeps Contest:

Every year various news organizations hold a Peeps contest where they ask for readers/viewers to submit goofy pics of Peeps doing un-Peep-like things. Here's the Seattle Times version.

Create a sculpture, diorama, tableau or art project of your liking that is made (mostly) of marshmallow Peeps. You might take inspiration from current movies or TV shows, the arts, news events or Seattle-area icons.

Yawn.

Meanwhile, Mental Floss has their own take on things. An example:

The Yoda-Speak Generator:

Old it is, yes but appears to have some new features since we last visited it. Whenever that was. International “Talk Like Yoda Day” isn’t until May 21st, but feel free to get in some practice in the thread

1957 Eldorado, The Cadillac of Cadillacs:

Yeah yeah yeah…innovative steel roof etc. If you ask me (which you didn't), I'd say that the greatest selling point for the car would be the glove compartment:

The whiskey glasses WERE included and I believe were etched with the Cadillac logo.

Happy Caturday!

Cats frolicking in their natural environment:

More Kitteh:

Whoops! Almost forgot to post Vic's Caturday song request:

Correction: My mistake. It was Garrett who requested the tune, not Vic. Sorry 'bout that guys!
