We are just obsessed with doughnuts today! Who knew the Library’s 1939-1940 World’s Fair Collection would have so many images tied to this delicious topic? Sure enough, it does, and here are a bunch of images depicting a dunking contest, three women who created prize donuts, firemen eating donuts, and pretty women posing with donuts. What better way to savor National Doughnut Day? Well, actually, if pictures aren’t enough, check out this sweet blog by our own Lauren Lampasone of Reference and Research Services. She goes over the whole history of the holiday, which started as a Great Depression fundraiser by The Salvation Army in 1938 in remembrance of the women who served doughnuts to soldiers on the front lines of World War I. So have a doughnut in their honor today! Enjoy!

( ._.)./ an explanation:
The dog has an issue where his esophagus doesn’t work right; it doesn’t get food in there right because it’s all stretched out and stuff. So what dog owners (and cat owners and I guarantee you the cat ones look goofier) do is make a highchair and feed them upright so gravity can be a hero. It’s also really cute.
The disorder is called Megaesophagus.
Here is a cat with the same disorder in his eatin’ sock.

The best part about this is that the greatest injustice men could think of was to simply have to trade lifestyles with their wives.
