We spent Labor Day Weekend in Boston. Aside from some minor hurricane winds on Friday, it was a really, really nice time. We forget how lovely towns without millions of people can be, with their magically clean sidewalks and strange lack of urine smells. It was positively uncanny.
At Fox News, you need a lot of ingredients to make the special magic that we have come to know, love and depend on to make sense of the world around us. Here's a partial recipe (admittedly incomplete): a heaping helping of xenophobia, a dash of good old-fashioned jingoism and whatever is in those bottles in the window on the second floor.
As any viewer of "Shark Week" can tell you, sharks get hungry. So when you take them out of open water and put them in a tank at the New England Aquarium, you have to feed them if you don't want them to eat their fellow "performers."
Enter the guy in the Body Glove suit holding a piece of squid on a stick.
The New England Aquarium has about 80 adorable penguins . . . Erik was pretty sure the majority were animatronic, but Karen is pretty sure he's wrong. I mean, at least half of them were definitely real.
At the Museum of Science in Boston, there are some cool interactive exhibits such as this one where you can ride a stationary bike and watch as this guy mirrors your every move. In short, it's a little creepy. You'd think they'd give the guy a break and let him get a protein shake or something.
In Boston, it seems that everyone has a boat. Fortunately, the city has a lot of waterways and actual means to get to them. Karen had fun watching the boats (and wishing she had one) as you can see above. Can you find her?
