Sculpture from punch bags to look like Ali, dogbrella ella ella.

  • Print

THE FACT IS…

William Howard Taft was the heaviest U.S. president (over 300 pounds!) and once got stuck in the White House bathtub.

SOMETHING TO PASS ALONG…

This sculpture really packs a punch! Artist Michael Kalish constructed a 22-feet-tall portrait of Muhammad Ali made of 2 miles of aluminum tubing, 5 miles of stainless steel cables, and 1,300 speed bags.

 

No more wet dog! Check out the Dogbrella – an umbrella made especially for keeping your pooch dry during walks in the rain.

 

Talk about a tight squeeze! A hen in Iowa laid an egg that was nearly the size of a Coke can! Eggs-traordinary!
