This week, we're going to tell you about a blue man... not the Blue Man Group, but an actual blue man in Canada! We also have interesting stories about unique artists. There's Samia Al Homsi Dagher, who uses ballpoint pens to create realistic portraits of celebrities and average folk. British chef,  Ben Churchill, creates desserts that look like sponges and other items that don't look so appetizing but taste delicious. And a Russian grandmother designs mosaics using bottle caps. Our trivia has questions about our solar system, krypton, and kleptomania. You'll get your weekly horoscope and learn about heterochromia, the Cascadia Earthquake, and a fun fact about the movie, Titanic. And of course, our clean, corny jokes are always a hit!
