This Week at Neatorama

Even though we are already into April, March Madness wraps up tonight and Monday as Kentucky, UConn, VCU, and Butler battle it out in the Final Four. While waiting for the games, you'll certainly want to spend the weekend catching up on everything going on at Neatorama!

Jill Harness posted a collection of the best Hilarious Paper Street Signs on Wednesday.

She also had a roundup of The Eleven Most Terrible Kid's Toys Ever.

History is stranger than fiction, as you'll see in The Strange Fate of Big Nose George, courtesy of Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

From the Annals of Improbable Research, we learned about The Travels of the Lorenz Butterfly.

Mental_floss gave us The History of Dairy Products, which is spelled g-o-a-t.

This week, Neatorama's literature blog Bitlit proudly introduced a new book: The Cube by Nat Karody. The first two chapters are already up. You might want to subscribe to Bitlit's RSS feed so you won't miss any new installments as they are posted.

At NeatoBambino, we saw the return of the Decipher The Doodle Contest. We have a lot of funny and imaginative entries already, and will announce the winners the contest will remain open for a couple more days if you want to enter!

Steven Johnson came up with a great drawing for the Name That Weird Invention contest this week! First place goes to amanderpanderer, who called it “Petal Stool…you know, for putting women up on.” Ha! Second place to Mysfyt for “The Sit and Stay-Man (Petal Powered).” Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!

In this week's What Is It? game, the first correct answer came from Blake. This is a truth window {wiki}, built into a wall of a house to show what the wall is made of (straw, in this case). Read more about them at the What Is It? blog. The funniest answer came from Iago, who said it was Rumpelstiltskin’s personal wall safe. Ha! Both winners get t-shirts from the NeatoShop. But you really should read all the comments because we had a ton of funny answers!

Once you've read what we have to offer for this week, you can delve into the archives for our past exclusive articles at The Best of Neatorama, or check out other links around the web with the NeatoHub. And thanks for spending some of your time with us!
