The Tumblr Historical Meet-Ups chronicles “unlikely encounters between famous people.”  For example, did you know that in 1978 First Lady Rosalynn Carter met serial killer John Wayne Gacy?  Or that the famous writerSamuel Beckett met Andre the Giant?  If you enjoy strange footnotes in history, you’ll love this site!

Random awesome covers:


These hilarious book cover parodies are from the blog Better Book Titles.  There’s an entire archive of covers that will have you cracking up, and a new cover is posted every weekday!

Anyone who watches movies will enjoy this clever short film.

And just for fun, here’s a video of the best reaction to the cone-ing prank ever.

Once again, thank you to Stumbling Over Chaos whose linkity post led me to Better Book Titles and Plot Device.  And thanks to John Green for tumbling Historical Meet-Ups and to Hank Green for tumbling the gif of the cone-ing reaction.

Have a great day, everybody!
