The Danish broadcaster DR hired some particularly expressive signers to recreate some of this year’s entries for deaf audiences.
The hero, Flyball, is adopted by a SPACE CAPTAIN, who irresponsibly decides it’s a brilliant idea to take his pet feline into space with him.
Thankfully, instead of crapping everywhere, or chewing through important SPACE WIRES and such, Flyball has EXCITING ADVENTURES.
This should never have been allowed to happen.
The books, which have been out of print for decades, are now collectors items - so sadly you’ll need to drop a few hundred quid to get in on the Space Cat action.

Artist Diemut Strebe took living cells from Lieuwe van Gogh: the great-great-grandson of Vincent’s brother, Theo. The museum says Lieuwe and Vincent share 1/16th of the same genes, including the Y-chromosome that is passed down the male lineage.
Van Gogh lost his ear in 1888. It’s still unclear whether he cut it off himself in a fit of lunacy, or if it was cut off by his friend, the French artist Paul Gauguin, during a fight they were having.

However, we can’t help but feel that everyone was missing the really excellent photobomb of the photobomb, by the two guys on the right, who looked like they were about to passionately kiss each other.
