Everybody remembers spending hours as a kid trying to win a plush teddy from a futile claw machine (I did that just last week!)
But after the dubious arcade staples were exposed as being rigged earlier this year, a shopping mall in southwest China has put an adorable spin on the game: replacing the robot claw with children.

Staff at Chongqing mall in Sichuan province buckled the excitable tots up, wrapped boxing gloves around their hands and dangled them above a pit of alluring toys on Friday 7 August. - daily mail, uk (w/comment)

Board Game
Yes, it took a lot of work to make the cards and pieces, but it's worth it--the players are way more thorough than the tax prep people ever were.

It may not seem like it to most people. But, there have been maybe a dozen or so times in my life, when something's happened - like say, an accident, a death, or sudden illness in the family (OR just some long and furious shopping) - and we've been out all day. We're stressed, tired, hungry and just want to get home and go to bed.

We get home, make the call to the pizza place, get in our jammies and, wah-lah, there is this nice person - coming out in all weathers and traffic - to bring a pie to our door. There is nothing as good or comforting as a hot pizza.

Hug a pizza person today, and always...tip generously.
