Happy Wednesday Persephoneers! We’ve got all kinds of good stuff in store for you today, including Round 2 of Middlemarch Madness (Yay!).
First up are the answers from last night’s trivia:
Waving Polar Bear – Massachusetts, Large Metal T. Rex – New York, Spotty the Dog – Connecticut, Babylonian Fertility God – New Jersey, Big Fries, Hot Dog, Shake – Tennessee, The Unbelievable Mystery Hole – West Virginia, Sloppy Giant In Ill-Fitting Clothes – Pennsylvania, Oversized Rocking Chair in a Field – Georgia, Shark Wedged in a Building – Maryland, Giant Nutcracker Head – Virginia
*Bonus – The waving polar bear is the is the only one of these bits of oddness that we actually saw (although I wish we had seen the Unbelievable Mystery Hole, just so I could tell you what it is). He lives on top of the Polar Beverages company in Worcester, MA and I have been waving to him my whole life. We pass him whenever we go to visit my grandparents, and the trip just isn’t complete if we don’t get a chance to say “Hi” to Polar Bear. While searching for a good picture of him (he’s the one picture from Wikipedia, BTW) I found out his name is Orson, and he has been up on that roof, in some form or other, since 1902.
For today’s Daily Goodie, I’ve selected a video that combines three of my favorite things; Steve Martin, The Muppets and banjo. If you are not a banjo fan, I have included a second goodie entitled “Hilarious Muppets Bloopers” that you can watch instead.
