Friday Freakout

It's time...

Bears in hammocks. Who doesn't love bears in hammocks?

A brief history of pie-throwing:

It’s also interesting to note that Mel Brooks wasn’t the first filmmaker to satirize the pie fight—Charlie Chaplin’s film Behind the Screen, which goes behind the scenes at a made-up film studio, also made fun of the trope way back in 1916. Chaplin's film introduces a group of actors practicing their pie tossing with a sarcastic intertitle that reads, “The comedy department—Rehearsing a new idea.” 
The start of many comedic wars.

And now, honouring a hero-dog:

Bretagne, the last known living search and rescue dog who worked at Ground Zero has been rewarded with a dream ‘Sweet 16’ birthday.

The deserving pooch enjoyed a limousine ride, playtime at a river park and a special party during her day out in New York City. 

The Bark Post and 1Hotels gave the golden retriever and her handler and owner Denise Corliss a day to remember, 14 years after their vital first deployment.

As members of Texas Task Force 1, Bretagne and Denise joined nearly 100 other search and rescue dogs to find and save people trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Center after 9/11.

“We were there to try to find survivors and when our task force arrived in Ground Zero, I just couldn’t believe the magnitude of it,” Denise told the publication in a moving video. “But then I looked down at [Bretagne] and she was ready to work.”
