This Week at Neatorama

Hanukkah (or Chanukah) the Jewish Festival of Lights begins Tuesday evening at sundown, and runs through December 28th. We wish you a wonderful holiday if you celebrate Hanukkah. If you don't, this would be a great opportunity to learn more about it. Then Thursday is the winter solstice. And Christmas Eve is one week away. OK, I know you're busy this weekend, unless you're one of those folks who get all their holiday preparation done way ahead of time. But take some time to catch up on the great features we've shared this week at Neatorama.

Jill Harness gave us some Christmas goodies in 15 Great Geeky Gingerbread People & Homes.

A Few More Facts About The Simpsons by Eddie Deezen was posted in honor of the series' 23rd anniversary today.

From Uncle John's Bathroom Reader came Tastes Like TV, with some awful recipes from your favorite sitcoms.

The Inventive Inventions of Dotts was brought to us by the Annals of Improbable Research.

Mental_floss magazine gave us 10 of the Greatest Guerrilla Marketing Campaigns of All-Time.

We have a different kind of contest running right now, and you have just a few more days to get your entry in, in the Extreme Neatorama Reading competition. There are four prizes from the NeatoShop up for grabs (your choice, of course) so get the contest details and send your pictures in ASAP!

In the What Is It? game this week, the item is a barbed wire salesman’s cane, made of barbed wire from patent number 184,486. No doubt he was selling barbed wire. The answer must have been too simple, because no one guessed it. We did have a lot of strange and amusing answers, though. The prize for the funniest one goes to ladybuggs, who said this is a dipstick for the Munstermobile! That clever thought wins him a t-shirt from the NeatoShop. See the answers to all this weeks mystery items revealed at the What Is It? blog.

If you live in the U.S. there's still time to do your Christmas shopping at the NeatoShop, thanks to UPS express shipping, but time is running short. Check the left sidebar at the shop for shipping deadlines. However, if you wait until the very last minute, the items you want may run out.

When you've caught up on everything here, be sure to check our Google+ page and our Facebook page every day for extra content, contests, discussions, videos, and links you won't find on our main page. Also, our Twitter feed will keep you updated on what's going around the web in real time. And remember, we always welcome your comments, feedback, and suggestions for making Neatorama ever better!
