This Week at Neatorama

Happy weekend! Yeah, we’ve got some special things planned for April Fools Day on Tuesday, but this past week was all about the t-shirts. The NeatoShop is so proud of its expanded selection of t-shirts by independent internet artists that we’ve been celebrating. You can see a bunch of those new designs in the roundup 200 Funny T-Shirts That Every Geek Needs, but there are plenty more to see -tons of them at 25% off! And we’re busy giving those shirts away, too, with several ways you can win.  

We’ve partnered with the site Today I Found Out to bring you a new contest in which you can Win A Captain America Mystery Box, A $100 Amazon Gift Card & More! There will also be quite a few t-shirts given out, so enter today!

Are you proud of your NeatoShop t-shirt? We’re looking for great pictures of people wearing our t-shirts  …and it could mean free t-shirts for you! 

And the NeatoShop Facebook page is running a t-shirt giveaway of its own! You have only until tomorrow night to enter.  

Whew! We also had some great feature articles this week, and if you missed any of them, here’s your chance to catch up.

John Farrier had a wonderful interview with Becky McKay, The Internet's Mad Cereal Baker.

Jill Harness brought us 15 Epic Crafts Inspired by 300.

Eddie Deezen told us about The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

Der Fartenführer: The Story of Hitler’s Illnesses came from Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader.

And mental_floss magazine gave us The 14 Greatest Hoaxes of All Time. Which is perfect to get you into the mood for April Fools Day.

Our Whodunit this week was The Burning Bungalow.

In the What Is It? game, the pictured item is is a British grenadier's match case. It carried a slow burning piece of cord used to light grenades. The What Is It? blog has a lot more about it. The answers y’all came up with were much funnier. Patrick Scott called it a “Pope Francis Supersoaker Aspergillum. Rowdy crowds get a Holy Soaking!” That’s good for a t-shirt! And kantoboy put it succinctly, it is “The Tin Man's actual wish.” Ha! -that’s a winner, too! Thanks to everyone who played along, and thanks to the What Is It? Blog.

The most popular post this past week was The Walking Disney: Princesses and Princes in a Post-Apocalyptic World, followed by Der Fartenführer: The Story of Hitler’s Illnesses. If you keep up with the "most popular" list in the sidebar, you may have noticed that Seattle’s Mystery Coke Machine was at the top most of the week -but it was posted on Friday a week ago, so it never had a chance to make this list. That's why I tell everyone that the statistics in this weekend wrapup are just for fun and shouldn't be taken too seriously.

The post that got the most ♥s was A Father Daughter Debate. In second place was 100 FedEx Trucks in the Funeral Procession for a Beloved Co-Worker, and Go Baby, Go! was third. Thanks for the ♥s!

The most-emailed post was Graph TV with Magic for Dogs following.

The biggest post of the week at Homes and Hues was 20 Wonderful Pieces of Furniture For Pets.

The most popular post at the Neatoramanauts Facebook page was <---this prank, which was shared so much that you should watch out to see who tries it for April Fools Day! The original stunt was for Halloween, and prankster Tom Mabe has a video about it.

Make sure to follow Neatorama on Twitter and Pinterest, too! Pinterest users will also want to bookmark the boards for Homes and Hues and the NeatoShop, too.

Have a great weekend! But keep in mind that come Tuesday, things will not be all they seem, at home, at work, and on the internet. They said to beware the Ides of March, but April first is the day you really want to be wary!
