This little piggy went to market with a bellyfull of coins

Yes, that's a real, taxidermied piglet. It will cost you $4000, so start saving so you can start saving. Again.

Some people make guns with 3D printers...

This guy made a shoe that carries your iPhone.

They were commissioned by FreshFiber, a company that specializes in personalized 3D printed accessories, based on their most popular iPhone cases. Alan Nguyen, the artist, calls it a mash-up shoe, likening it to a DJ creating a new mix out of other people's products. And it comes in three colors.

Yoko Ono designs terrible clothing

Thanks to Everlasting Blort for this tip: Yoko Ono designs clothing for men. And it's not just terrible clothing but also terribly expensive (a jock strap costs $200, for example).

This one is called a Light Bra. Worn with Hand Trousers, of course.

This one is called a Bell Board. At the bottom it reads, "RING FOR YOUR MOMMY PIECE".

She refers to this coyly as a "butt" but clearly those are testicles.

That green you see is another big hand on the pants.

OK now that's a butt. See the difference?

But wait, there's more! She's also provided a total WTF? make-up tutorial for the daring men that would wear her fashion:

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a Skinny Tiger Rita

The Original Sugar Free Purple Tiger Rita™ Skinny Margarita Mix - it's 99.3% ALL Natural! (And 60% of the time, it works every time!)

Just add water & tequila, rum or vodka! Or all three! It's probably going to taste like crap anyway! Might as well get really drunk!

No, not that kind of hummer, you pervs.

A few days ago a friend sent me the link to a live webcam trained on the nest of an Allen's hummingbird they've dubbed "Phoebe".

According to the website, Phoebe has possibly been coming back to the same spot in Southern California every year since 2007 (they are not absolutely, positively sure it's the same hummingbird, but they think so). She has four nests in a rosebush, and she chooses among them every year, sprucing up the one she chooses with more dryer lint and cobwebs, which is pretty much what hummingbirds make their nests out of because wouldn't you, if you were a tiny fairy bird?

The nests are also tiny, for example:

And for another example:

The cobwebs make the nest stretchy and easy to fix as the growing chicks squirm around trying to find a more comfortable spot. Phoebe feeds her babies flower nectar and bugs, which she regurgitates into what the website calls "a kind of buggy stew".

Apparently they'll also eat this stuff, found by my friend Jeremy at his local grocery store in Tennessee:

Now THAT, I'll admit, sounds randy.

UPDATE: Both hummer babies have fledged, but Phoebe's not done for the season. She's got one if not two more rounds to go. Check back in periodically.
