Quokkas are marsupials about the size of a house cat. Quokkas are natural smilers. Quokkas are not camera shy. Australians are cozying up to quokkas in record numbers lately for selfies. Turn that frown upside down down under and snap a quokka today!


Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Points to ponder

How many times have you used a crummy pencil sharpener, only to have the lead of your pencil break off again and again? Russian artist Salavat Fidai sharpens his pencils by hand and sculpts the lead while he’s at it.

Behold, his Number Two Dark Knight!

And his graphite Lord Vader.

Salavat has an Etsy store, if you’d like to keep a piece of his art in your pencil cup. Also, keep a magnifying glass handy.
