Fight Against Maturity

Here’s to you, Mr. Cole. (Clink) Bon Voyage!

A popular Toronto [entertainer] is dying of cancer, but has managed to keep his sense of humour.

Dan Cole, known as the Busker of the Beaches, attended his own wake Saturday and joked with friends on what could have been a sombre night.

“I didn’t want to miss people saying good things about me by waiting until I died,” he noted. “[And] it gives me an opportunity to say goodbye.”

He’s dying of incurable lung cancer, but he and his friends kept the mood light with banjos, acrobats and a lot of laughter.

A very small dog…or a very large cup

He is a third of the size of an average guinea pig, and weighs in at just a few ounces – but this tiny puppy could be a big deal when it comes to world records.

The miniscule chihuahua-Jack Russell cross – appropriately named Tom Thumb by its owners – is a serious contender for the title of being the smallest dog on the planet.
