As recently featured on the TLC show My Crazy Obsession, Eric ‘the Mertailor’ Ducharme (charming name, charming guy) has turned a childhood obsession with all things mermaidenly into a business – making custom mer-tails.

This is precisely the kind of entrepreneurial spirit that will one day save Atlantis.

Go on. You know you want one.


Redditor mard86 received an email from a colleague explaining that he would be late for work because he was trying to ‘untie a squirrel tail knot’. When asked for a picture, the above snap arrived along with the following explanation:

I was pressed into squirrel rescue this morning on my way out. 5 young squirrels got tangled in Christmas lights in my neighbor’s yard. We got the lights off, but now their tails are one big knot, so I have to bring them into a rescue place to untie them, as I am unequipped to untie squirrel tail knots. I should be in this afternoon.
