NYC Taxi Drivers, a 2014 calendar

The cabdrivers pose with erotic novels, a unicorn mask and an energy drink to help bring out their inner sex appeal. The calendar is priced at $14.99 and can be purchased here. All proceeds will go to a local charity that serves over 30,000 immigrant and working individuals and families. (via PSFK)

Best. Gift. Ever.

Past and present: balloons of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
A storm bearing down on the East Coast with a messy mix of snow, rain and wind is threatening to ground giant balloon versions of Snoopy and SpongeBob SquarePants in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The iconic characters that soar between the Manhattan skyscrapers every year may not lift off Thursday if sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph, according to city rules enacted after fierce winds in 1997 caused a Cat in the Hat balloon to topple a light pole and seriously injure a woman spectator.

It turns out some old balloons were kind of terrifying.

Those throwback balloons are actually horrifying.

Yikes!!
