Tumblr Thread Recalls Hilariously Petty Art World Feud

We've never seen petty like this before and honestly, this story has so many levels of petty that we're gonna have to just let it do all the talking. All we can really say is that it involves world-renowned a-hole Anish Kapoor, his "bean" (aka Cloud Gate), and the world's blackest black shade of paint.

Happy Halloween! One thing we absolutely adore is when animals get holiday or weather-related gifts or treats!

During the blasting heat of summer, we've seen zoos treat the animals with frozen popsicles specialized for each individual animal. It's thoughtful and delightful to see the animals nomming on their frozen goodies. This year, Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, Illinois, treated their animals to a Halloween treat! A pumpkin for them to eat, munch, play with, whatever they wish to do with it is completely up to them. Most of the animal's reaction to the pumpkin is just too good and will leave a giant smile plastered on your face.

Here's a message from Brookfield Zoo, this Halloween, "Everybody likes to carve their Halloween pumpkins differently. Some of us like to take our time, some just start ripping it apart, others like to work together, and some prefer to work alone. However you carve your pumpkin, #BrookfieldZoo hopes you have a Happy Halloween!"

The Catcade In Chicago Is The Coolest Cafe/Arcade We've Ever Seen!

Welcome to Chicago's Catcade! The Catcade, according to their Instagram is, "45% cat cafe. 45% cat rescue. 5% arcade. 3% cat hair. 2% black t-shirts. 100% non-profit = 200% the best hour in Chicago. Cats > math." And 100% pawesome. The Catcade is the coolest arcade around because it is an "arcade-themed" cat rescue, and lounge. Creators of the Catcade, Christopher Gutierrez and Shelly Casey, orchestrated an environment where the cats can roam-free and interact with humans, instead of being locked up in cages. We simulate a home environment where instead of being in cages, the cats get to interact with friendly humans in a free-roam living room atmosphere.
