all i could find out was…
No joke. They dance, they sing, they bat their gargantuan eyeballs. It’s called My Little Pony Live: The World’s Biggest Teaparty, and you can buy it on DVD if you feel so inclined.
“Why is this?” might be the more appropriate question. As much as any little girl of the 1980’s I loved me some MLP’s, but even I am befuddled, albeit mildly amused, by this one. To this very day, I would be thrilled to receive any of the below pictured vintage items (especially the sleeping bag if you’re looking to get me a present), but if you took me to see that… thing… i do believe i would be upset with you.
Dancers Among Us is a collection of NYC dance photographs featuring members of the Paul Taylor, Mark Morris and Martha Graham Dance Companies. This is an ongoing project that began in the spring of 2009. There were no trampolines or other devices used for these images, just thousands of hours of training! Photos by Jordan Matter.
Ok, maybe these aren’t that funny, but I figure they warrant a big grin at least. Some were found at awkwardfamilyphotos.com.

The story of one “lucky” dude:
A U.S. forest ranger in Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park, Roy Cleveland Sullivan (1912-1983) survived being hit by lightning seven different times:
Sullivan shot himself in 1983 … reportedly over a rejected love.
Photograph of Mayor A. W. Shackleford frozen to two microphones by a 50 volt shock caused by improper grounding. Assisting him is CJOC Announcer Joe McCallum, (left) and City Alderman Cliff Black. Second from the right in the background is Marvin Nelson.
Mayor Shackleford was just about to introduce Teen Queen Donna Glock and runner-up Shirley Parkinson at a Valentine Dance, 1953, when he grabbed both microphones. Because the wires were improperly grounded the current flowed into the Mayor’s body and froze his hands to the microphones until the power was turned off.
The photograph, taken by F. Orville Brunelle of the Lethbridge Herald, appeared in 1300 magazines and newspapers all over the World. Brunell won the Canadian Press Picture Service “Best Picture of the Year” Award for 1953.
