Unicorn at the Zoo

Jeff Wysaski of Pleated-Jeans has done something completely awesome with our Magical Unicorn Mask. He created a unicorn exhibit at the Los Angeles Zoo, complete with its own educational placard:

Entitled “Unicorn at the Zoo,” this delightful video shows off Randy, the zoo’s newest and most magical resident.

“Say hello to the newest resident of the LA Zoo. He’s already a big crowd pleaser…”

Watching him look so longingly at the zebras, we’re wondering how Randy the Unicorn would react if other unicorns showed up to visit him at the LA Zoo.

Now we know why we’ve sometimes felt weirdly unsatisfied after an otherwise amazing day at the zoo. No unicorns!

Archie McPhee snowflake by Kit Cameo

We love Kit Cameo‘s themed snowflakes so much we commissioned her to do an Archie McPhee snowflake:

As you can see, it’s utterly amazing. She worked in the Horse Mask, the Unicorn Mask, the Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats and Groucho Glasses.

In case you haven’t seen them before, here are her wonderful Cthulhu and Pirate snowflakes:

You can even pick a theme yourself and have her make one for you!

Thanks, Kit!

Horse Head Mask sighting: The tale of a lovesick horse

Two From SPb made this awesomely silly music video entitled “Wild Horse“. The video features our creepy Horse Head Mask and tell the story of “a wild horse who doesn’t like Kate Moss. It likes a girl from a Russian town. But she lives with a bear and she doesn’t care.”

Live long and eat plenty of bacon

There may not be any food that’s better than bacon, but did you know that it might also hold the key to longevity?

Pearl Cantrell of Richland Springs, Texas recently celebrated her 105th birthday. That’s an indisputably awesome accomplishment, but it gets better. When asked how she’s managed to live so long Pearl replied: 

“I love bacon, I eat it everyday”, says Pearl, “I don’t feel as old as I am, that’s all I can say”, she explains.

Still feisty and full of life, Pearl has been through a lot, and has plenty of reasons to complain or even give up. After mothering seven children, outliving three of them, losing a husband, and enduring decades of physical labor, she still has a smile on her face.

“I would go to the field and work till dinner, then come home to fix dinner, then I would go back out to the field and work again until supper”, Pearl tells us.

But Pearl’s daughter, Anno, says complaining is the last thing you’ll ever hear her mother do. “She’s taught us to work hard and to get up every morning and think about living. She’s never thought about dying”, says Anno.

Pearl Cantrell, all of us here at Archie McPhee would like to wish you a belated Happy Birthday! We think you’re awesome and we’re glad you love bacon as much as we do.
