This is the cutest thing I have seen today:
Major props to American Eagle Outfitters for making a fake line for animals (complete with a mockumentary) to help raise money for rescue organizations.
...their creative team deserves to be showered in sloppy, wonderful, St. Bernard kisses.
Also, the “American Beagle Outfitters Dogumentary” is a must-watch! Really high caliber parody. Sample soundbyte: “Do you know what it is ... Read More

We were inspired by Mental Floss's list of inventions by ladies and wanted to share them (and add a few), so take a look at twenty five items to be thankful for, and give these women a big round of ...
