This Week at Neatorama

Labor Day weekend, the traditional time to say goodbye to summer. The holiday is a day of tribute to the working people who built our country and who continue to make things run. Let's also remember so many who want to work, who need jobs when the jobs just aren't there right now. If you work and have Labor Day off, you may need some reading material to relax with between activities, and we have them here at Neatorama!

Stacy Conradt brought us the stories of Six Celebrities and their Alter Egos.

Jill Harness rounded up a bunch of Smurfingly Smurftastic Facts About The Smurfs.

Eddie Deezen contributed some timely trivia in 11 Facts You May Not Know About Jerry Lewis.

Now Hear This: Radio War Propagandists was our post this week from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

From the Annals of Improbable Research, we saw Mankiw’s Ten Principles of Economics, Translated.

The Political Hot Potato was the latest from mental_floss magazine.

Every once in a great while, our readers contribute something so neat in the comments that we have to post it to make sure everyone sees it. That happened this week when Stubb filled us in on Pattern Baldness in Russian Leadership.

The Star Wars Lightsaber Mini Hunt popped up suddenly, to give some Neatoramanaut a Darth Vader Force FX Lightsaber from Habro! That contest is still open, so check it out.

In the What Is It? game this week, the object pictured is an ice chipper. Craig Clayton was the first of many with the correct answer, so he wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop. The funniest answer came from Maxx McIlhargey, who said it was a toothpick for crocodiles, used by wildlife conservationists to get the drug runner bones from between the crocodile’s teeth from a distance. He did not select a shirt.

It's a long holiday weekend, so after you catch up on these posts, you may want to browse through The Best of Neatorama, where we have feature article going back six years! Happy Labor Day, everyone!
