Have you always loved Shakespeare but you feel like it's been missing a certain canine quality? Well you're not the only one. Kevin Broccoli has set out to create a production of Hamlet starring all pugs. What's the show called, you ask? You guessed it: "Pug-let." Is this something you want to see happen? Mr. Broccoli needs your help. Here's what he has to say on his Kickstarter page:
I want to produce the first-ever all-pug production of "Hamlet." As you can imagine, this will require finding very talented pugs.
For years I've dreamed of mounting one of Shakespeare's most glorious works with nature's most glorious creation: The Pug.
This will be the first-ever (that I'm aware of) all-pug production of "Hamlet." The actors will be pugs--even Gertrude.
It will be an amazing theatrical event. Please help us bring it to life.
*If the project is fully funded, we can film it so people who can't travel to see the show can still receive a link to view the production in lieu of an actual ticket.
Having ripped jeans has been a fashion statement of danger and toughness in the past but it has never been more legit until now.
The Kamine Zoo in Hitachi, Japan recently took part in an unusual fundraiser: sell jeans that have been gnawed on by their lions, tigers and bears. Large sheets of denim were wrapped around objects like tires, logs and rubber balls for the animals to chew on. The deliberately torn material was then sewn into what they're calling "Zoo Jeans" and are to be sold at auction to raise money for the animals. No price has been set for the jeans.
