Friday favorites

So there was an inauguration this week.

In accordance with the times, the ceremony was socially distanced. Seats were spread out, and a photographer captured this soon-to-be-viral image of Senator Bernie Sanders, sitting alone, arms and legs crossed and  dressed in a Burton coat and oversized wool mittens.

The memes started immediately.
Then came the photo shopping.
Within twenty fours hours, Facebook was one giant episode of Where's Bernie?
And Bernie was everywhere.
No really.
He was everywhere.
This morning he was a jump judge at Rolex.
By the afternoon, he'd been promoted to riding at Rolex.
I didn't think it was going to get any better than that. Then Jocelyn Page brought him to BreyerFest.
Doesn't he look excited?
Here he is in the covered arena.
And here he is proudly showing off his purchases!
Of course, we all know BreyerFest is virtual this year, so Jocelyn took care of that as well.
Thank you, Jocelyn! This is your legacy, and it is amazing!


  1. I'm so glad I wasn't just seeing things when he turned up in Eleanor's rotunda at the Smithsonian (my first exposure). Jumping?! At least his eyes are closed.

  2. Jennifer!
    BWahahahahahahahaha! Thank you for this!! I have been feeling "down in the dumps" lately and the news that Breyerfest was going to be virtual yet again certainly hasn't helped the mood!
    But *this* DID! I almost peed my pants laughing! Tell your friend JOCELYN thank you for sharing!! The *best* "awww" moment was the Breyerfest mascot giving poor ol' Bernie a comforting hug!
    Thanks again for the laughs! This made my day!

  3. Has anyone put Bernie in the NaMoPaiMo collage yet? ;)
