These Al-packs look like your favorite coat—the one that you wore in 1987 with the fur-like collar and plaid puffy jacket parts.

Only better. And following Rule #10.

“I hate to tell you this, Ma’am…

…But you’ve got buns on your foundation—they may causing your structural issues. They’re yin-yang buns at that—haven’t seen a case like this in a looong time."

Today’s Culture Break: Moneigh™

Herc_200_2Meet Hercules:  Ancient hero… blood donor… draft horse… impressionist?

Hercules lives right down the road from me, more or less, at the U of M‘s College of Veterinary Medicine.  About a month ago, Herc helped raise funds for the U’s new Equine Center in unique fashion — by creating hoofprint paintings as gifts to the (human) donors (of money).

The imposing palomino isn’t limited to prints, though–he’s been receiving instruction on his brush technique.  This is a university, after all.

Here’s what I’d like to see, though: For your next fundraiser, tack a plain canvas dropcloth to the wall, line up a couple of paintbuckets in front of it on a sawhors… um, some kind of support… then have Hercules give ‘em each a nice solid kick.  Et voila: Jackson Paddock.
