"If you have any creature in the house with a head bigger than a walnut
(including boyfriends), you need a Kitty Wig™."

Those of you old enough to remember watching sporting events in the late 70's and early 80's may remeber a gentleman with a rainbow colored wig who enjoyed holding up a sign reading JOHN 3:16. That gentleman was named Rollen Stewart
and while he was ubiquitous for a time, he came to sad and bizarre end. His rise and fall detailed in this article
and a short movie
is an interesting cautionary tale about the nature of celebrity in a media saturated world.

WIG (Wing In Ground) boats
are something like a cross between a hovercraft and an airplane. Taking advantage of a phenomenon
that creates a cushion of air between a wing and the ground, they fly a few feet above the surface of the water, able to reach higher speeds with greater efficiency than traditional boats. The best known WIG boats are the Russian ekranoplans
, and the largest and most famous of these was the KM, better known in the west as the "Caspian Sea Monster"
