As the new Muppet Movie opened this week, Jill Harness gave us A Short Look At The Muppet's Long History.
Eddie Deezen gave us some interesting holiday reading with How Straight-laced were the Pilgrims?
The Annals of Improbable Research found a gem among registered patents and brought us A Device to Deter a Bear.
The Meanest Towns in the West were ranked by Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.
From mental_floss magazine, we had The Quest to Solve the Hardest Math Problem in History (and the Minds that were Lost Along the Way).
The biggest post of the week was the one about the Cherpumple, called A Cherry Pie, an Apple Pie and a Pumpkin Pie, Each Cooked Inside a Separate Cake, and Then All Cooked Together inside Another Cake.

The What Is It? game took a Thanksgiving holiday this week, but contests continue at Google+, like this caption contest. Leave your captions at the G+ post, or vote by giving a +1 to captions already posted. Keep up with our social networking feeds, like Facebook and Twitter as well as G+, and catch competitions and giveaways you won't see here at the main site.
In the coming week, get your Christmas decorations and ornaments ordered from the NeatoShop so you'll have time to enjoy them.

But isn't it wonderful to be able to buy everyone something different, funny, useful, or just plain neat without having to go shopping?
