while i was in london, i caught a provocative documentary on the bbc about the plight of the honeybee. did you know that our bees are disappearing? and suffering from a global epidemic called CCD - colony collapse disorder? and that a related book is the #19 best selling non-fiction book at heathrow airport?
i think this was the most bizarro pic i snapped on the trip. and it was at the boots pharmacy at heathrow airport.
travel advice? perfect.
medicines check & prescriptions? how convenient.

as you know, i heart hall & oates. plus, i heart keyboard cat. add them together and you get this gem of a mash-up.

what happens when you cross a "we are the world" remake with your hard-at-work tax dollars? why yes, it is a PSA for the usa.gov website.
who approved this? how many layers of government did this have to go through? that said, my fave part is the bruce springsteen style solo with the cameo of abe lincoln around 0:47:
