This Week at Neatorama

I used to wait until after Thanksgiving to put up my Christmas decorations. What changed my habits was my children. I always told them we couldn't decorate until the house was clean, so they helped out -a lot. And since we have quite a few guests for Thanksgiving, the housecleaning and decorating now get done before the feast. And why not? I have neighbors that put up lights two weeks ago! So that's what I'll be doing this week -along with grocery shopping, cooking, and making sure you have plenty of good things to read on Neatorama! If you're using the weekend to catch up on Neatorama, here are some links to help you out.

In the What Is It? game this week, the mystery object is an inkwell. Congratulations to Anker, who had the correct answer right off. The funny answer award goes to Straight_Flush, who declared this to be a small hadron collider! Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop. We had a lot of imaginative answers this week, some x-rated, so you should go read them all!

Over on the Neatorama Google+ page, we introduced caption contests this week. I believe this one is still open. If you don't have a great caption, you can vote on your favorite from the ones already there! And be sure to check out the Google+ page every day, because giveaways pop up over there with no advance notice.

When you're caught up on everything from this week, you can check out past feature articles at The Best of Neatorama. And have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
