This Week at Neatorama

I hope you've got your Mothers Day gifts ordered from the NeatoShop already, because the big day is tomorrow. If you didn't get your order in on time, you can tell Mom about the gift that's coming with a nice card -or run out and buy her some flowers, and make sure you shop ahead for Fathers Day!

This week, probably the most popular post was 23 Facts You Might Not Know about The Dukes of Hazzard, by John Farrier.

Jill Harness brought us Five More Inventors Killed By Their Own Creations, as an extension of a previous list on the same subject.

Alex took a closer look at a fascinating photography project called Bureaucratics by Jan Banning.

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader gave us the history of the Berlin Wall in The Fall of the Wall.

From the Annals of Improbable Research came an answer that makes perfect sense in Striped Skunk Color Pattern Explained.

We learned some Biting Facts About Braces, courtesy of mental_floss magazine.

Last weekend, we had a caption contest on The Frowning Royal Wedding Flower Girl: What Was She Thinking About? Winning entries came from Kat C, ladybuggs, and Wndrin. T-shirts go to the winners who selected one. Congratulations all around!

In the What Is It? game this week, Anirban was first with the correct answer (but didn't select a shirt): this is a betel nut cutter. The funniest answer came from Chad Huskey, who said: "According to Futurama robots celebrate "Robanukah" So in that vein my assumption is this is a device used when 8 days after rolling off the assembly line male robots have their robo-bris." For that, he wins a t-shirt!

Looking for more great content? Be sure you keep up with NeatoBambino, where you can learn things like what the top baby names for 2010 were and which are the best countries for motherhood. Also, you'llĀ  find some amazing talent at our literary blog Bit Lit, and at the Art Blog. Have a great Mothers Day!
