134. Opposite Day

One day a year I get to shower with my clothes on, wear shoes on my hands, drive backwards down the wrong side of the road, tell my boss what to do, poop in the urinals and pee in the toilets, type with my feet, have cashiers pay me when I buy items, lose weight by eating Big Macs, and have my dog take me for a walk. Opposite day rules! See also Made Up.

135. Box of Rattlesnakes

From today's New York Times obituary of Evel Knievel, "When he was 27, he became co-owner of a motorcycle shop in Moses Lake, Wash. To attract customers, he announced he would jump his motorcycle 40 feet over parked cars and a box of rattlesnakes and continue on past a mountain lion tethered at the other end. Before 1,000 people, he did the stunt as promised but failed to fly far enough; his bike came down on the rattlesnakes." See also Animals.

137. The Cover Art for Bjork's "Volta"

Well, okay. First of all, she is wearing some kind of psychedelic pineapple costume. And second of all, she has GIANT BLUE FEET. Pitchfork earnestly described the artwork as a "visual feast". See also Music, Singers.
