Will somebody please call a cab for this little drunken doggie, she got into the eggnog a few hours ago and hasn't been the same since!
At least she has her fancy Christmas dress on, so she'll retain a bit of her dignity when this photo makes the rounds on the interwebs.

Think about art school and you can almost smell formaldehyde in your nostrils. The ad agency worked with that olfactory trigger by creating three posters for the MASP Art School in São Paulo, Brazil. They show Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and Vincent Van Gogh in dissection with their organs depicted in the styles of those artists.

Admittedly, this song is full of stereotypes, but when they're about a dog recognized worldwide as the Taco Bell mascot, it's not really that bad -especially when he's this cute.

Need some last minute Star Wars holiday decorations? Look no further than the DIY Star Wars Snowflakes! We have posted about this in years past, but now we have a full gallery of downloadable templates so it's easier than ever for you to make these at home yourself. Check them all out here!
Note: Using thin paper like tissue paper is easiest for cutting.

Reader Michelle McKee sent in these great pictures of her parakeet Cooper and her friends Dewey and Ozzie decking the halls, trimming the tree, hanging stockings with care and lighting up the minorah this holiday season. Let me just say, these are some seriously cute and cudly little birdies.
You can keep up with Cooper's fun adventures all year long on his blog, Cooper's Corner.

The ease of Internet publishing has given new opportunities to cartoonists. They no longer need the backing of an established publishing or syndication company--just some computer skills. The Economist looked at the developing of the industry and some of its leading figures, including Zach Weinersmith, Kate Beaton, Randall Munroe and Matthew Inman:

The poem published as "A Visit from St. Nicholas" is usually credited to Clement Clarke Moore, but it's very possible that we will never know for sure who wrote it.
The evidence in an article at mental_floss seems to point to Livingston, with even more in the comments. Link

Scotch eggs are hard boiled eggs covered with sausage and breadcrumbs, then deep fried. Adora's Christmas version of this classic food uses quail eggs instead of chicken eggs and adds chestnuts and cranberries to the sausage coating.
I've occasionally considered making scotch eggs at home, but I don't have a deep fryer. Have you ever made them?

This scene is always my favorite of The Nutcracker Ballet. In the version our regional ballet does, Mother Ginger is a man atop a wooden scaffolding that gets rolled out on stage. In this version, the lemon drop dancers underneath are so tiny that such shenanigans aren't necessary. Keep your eye on little Isabella, who is so full of the joy of dancing that she dumps the practiced routine and steals the entire number!

National Geographic posted a gallery of six animal self-portraits from all over the world. Pictured here is a common genet captured by camera trap in Yemen. They are all beautiful, but I don't understand why this one didn't make the cut. Link

You're obligated to have some kind of healthy option availble at Christmas dinner, but usually they get ignored in favor of the more tasty treats available. If you actually want people to munch down on the salad though, maybe you should try sprucing it up into a wreath to better fit the holiday season.

National Geographic has opened a new science blog section of their extensive website called Phenomena, with four blogs by science writers you probably already know.

Most girls would be excited to meet Princess Aurora in real life, but not the cynical young gal in this picture.
She'd rather see all that princess money going to better causes, like pet adoption and green power. Princesses are overrated, give me a Congresswoman any day!

I love Christmas, my favorite day of the year. In fact, the whole Christmas season is my favorite time of the year. "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" is one of the most universally popular and beloved Christmas songs in the vast repertoire of Yuletide tunes. The Rudolph character first appeared in a 1939 booklet written by Robert L. May and published by Montgomery Ward. Johnny Marks adapted the story of Rudolph into a song. Gene Autry's recording of the tune became "the" Christmas song of 1949, selling 2.5 million copies that year and eventually 25 million. It remains one of the best-selling Christmas melodies of all time.

Therefore, Rudolph should be named Roberta or Roxanne or Ramona or Rachael or whatever. Not to mention feminizing all the other names of the other eight reindeer.
