The strange things you find on the Web

Okay, so I was doing an image search for “frog eyes.” Yeah, maybe not the most common search. Not like looking for pictures of Justin Bieber or any random Kardashian. But when you’re doing art, sometimes you need to know these things.

And I ran across this:

Little girl and dog wearing crocheted hats with frog eyes

Uh, not exactly what I was looking for. But a must-see, all the same. It took me a little longer to find its original source — which is here. And contains even more adorable oddities.

And here we thought Joel’s Jayne Hat was as weird as it gets …

Oh. Also. For the same project, I searched on images of a cat about to be moved to a new home. And I discovered that when you seach on “cat carrier” you’ll get about 10,000 iterations of this oldie-and-not-so-goodie.

    Hey. That’s my hat for when I’m feeling especially cunning.

    Or – um – it was before Little Bear ate it. Now I’ve got this new hat that looks like it came from the set of Fargo. Gift from a friend.

    Wash: “A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he’s not afraid of anything.” (Especially if he’s got an AK too!) Heh.

    We have a new kitten and that cat carrier looks just like what we need to keep her inline, or perhaps not, but then you never know. It is Sunday and I just cannot make up my mind. She helps keep the Pug active so she does not get too fat, so I guess not, on the cat carrier.

    I have one of those cat carriers in my living area and it’s conspicuously displayed. It’s a great way of sorting out who’s who on first dates.

    Oh no…LB ate the Jayne hat??? Maybe we should get you a frog-eyes hat instead. And one for LB, too. ;^)

    Beth — Unless my memory’s wrong, LB just ate the tassel off the hat & Joel is exaggerating. At least I hope that’s all that happened. It was too great a hat to go down a dog’s gullet!

    And Joel … I hope you won’t be thinking “Fargo” next time it’s 10 below and the wind is blowing 50 mph. I hope you’ll be thinking WARM. (But … um, yeah, now that you mention it … “Fargo.”)

    No…guys, I’m afraid LB really took a shine to that hat. It went much farther than the tassel. I felt very badly about it – I liked that hat.

    Beth – no frog eyes. Please.
