Just because it's his party, doesn't mean he can't cure his boredom by playing with the elastic strap on his birthday headgear. If dullness fully set in, it would be a CATastrophe.

Banksy's famous Parachuting Rat, located on a wall in the Melbourne, Australia suburb of Prahran, has been destroyed by builders doing drilling work for a café.

Local business owners were upset by the needless demolition of the piece by workers who apparently didn't realize what they were destroying. The wall did contain other graffiti, but area taggers had avoided painting over the Banksy.

"Had it been 20cm higher or 20cm to the side this would never have happened," neighboring business owner Jacqui Vidal told the Stonnington Leader, "This should have been avoided. It's not a big piece, but it is one of the few remaining Banksys in Melbourne."

The Rat was destroyed once before by cleaners who painted over it during a 2010 anti-graffiti campaign, but was later restored.

There is some good news, though: a possible new Banksy piece -- showing an Asian boy hunched over a sewing machine and a Union flag -- has appeared on the wall of a Poundland shop in London. It has yet to be confirmed as authentic on the artist's website.

George Lucas Strikes Back of the Day

Star Wars creator George Lucas has been trying for years to convert a large parcel of land in Marin County, CA, into a 300,000-square-foot movie studio, with amenities including a day care center, restaurants, a gym and a parking garage, only to be shot down by his wealthy neighbors.

Because the local homeowners' association has refused to let Lucas move forward with the studio, he's decided to put the land to good use by transforming it into low-income housing, simultaneously doing a good deed and trolling his fellow landowners.

"If everyone feels that housing is less impactful on the land, then we are hoping that people who need it the most will benefit," Lucas snarked.

He's even donating the various studies and surveys he paid for while working on the movie studio project, to help the new housing development get underway more quickly.

That might be almost enough to outweigh creating Jar Jar Binks.

Nothing can celebrate the person who birthed you into this world by donning some appropriately embarrassing outfit and taking her out to Olive Garden. However, for this pup, he might be better trying to sail on through the day without notice.

It's difficult to tell whether this cat is dreaming about life beyond that pane of glass, or if he's creeping out the rest of the neighborhood on purpose. In any event, that vest is not helping his case -- the stripes give it a weird, Freddy Krueger vibe, making it a real nightMEOW on Elm Street.

Arrested Development Lego Set of the Day

Just when you thought the Arrested Development news couldn't get any better, Lego builder Matt DeLanoy has created a Lego playset (complete with minifigs!) based on the recently-resurrected sitcom.

Structures include the Bluth home, the Bluth Company stair car, and the banana stand (money presumably not included).

The stair car is currently up for voting on Lego's crowdsourced idea site, Cuusoo, and could be turned into an official Lego set if it gathers enough votes and meet the approval of Lego's design jury.

Meanwhile, it's probably safe to say that the Lego version of the Bluth house is better-constructed than the real thing.

A Scottish artist named Michael decided to spice up the popular Pictionary-style game Draw Something by adding a simple self-imposed rule: always draw Hitler.

His Tumblr, "Ignore Hitler," chronicles his attempts to communicate his assigned words while gratuitously sketching one of history's worst villains and violating Godwin's Law six ways from Sunday.
