A furry mounts a sea rescue (link roundup)

This ad by Ogilvy shows that National Sea Rescue has brave, committed volunteers who have poor taste in costumes. Here's another ad in the campaign featuring a bride.

And a few more links:

1. Felix the Cat/Astro Boy mashup. See also: Astro Boy leading an army.

2. During the Hawaii Bowl Banquet, the University of Hawaii and Notre Dame football teams had a battle of chants. UH head football coach Greg McMackin called the Notre Dame chant a "little fa***t dance." He's apologized and he apparently found a way to say the word two more times during his apology.

3. An army spy infiltrated various Seattle-area antiwar groups. As I understand it, members became suspicious and exposed him by obtaining documents through the Freedom of Information Act.
