This Week at Neatorama

April is almost over and May is coming at us at the speed of time. Soon, we'll be busy with Mother's Day, graduation, Memorial Day, and school vacation. Just remember, when you get really busy that it's always a good idea to take a break and recharge with the fun and interesting stuff on Neatorama! Here's what you need to catch up on from the past week.

Jill Harness has two feature article his week. Cool Non-Literary Uses for Books has recycling projects that are "bound" to impress.

And her post The 11 Coolest and Weirdest Tumblr Blogs should keep you quite busy.

We learned about The Great Moon Hoax (of 1835) from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

The Annals of Improbable Research gave is a lesson in Horse Calculus.

Wales, the Almost Nation came to us from mental_floss magazine.

Alex received a promotional goodie box concerning the new movie Thor and decided to share the contents in a game called What's Inside The Box. We had lots of winners, who were named in the followup post.

The What Is It? game was not all that easy this week. It took a while, but Edward K had the right answer. This is a pet ID holder. You can slip paper inside it and attach it to a dog’s collar. The funniest answer came from Randall, who called it “A hummelfubertapfer. Scandenavian beer drinker would use this timy hammer to break of the ice that formed on their beer as they drank it. This led to the colloquial joke of ‘Is that your wife’s nose or a Hummelfubertapfer?’ after which the the joke’s subject would either fly into a rage or laugh uproarously, depending on their level of inebriation.” Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!

And we have a contest that is still open as this post is published! The Frowning Royal Wedding Flower Girl: What Was She Thinking About? is a caption contest of sorts in which you can win a funny t-shirt from the NeatoShop!

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!
