Intern's Pick of the Day

By Jennifer GrudzieckiMarch 21, 2011
You will either find today's pick ( sent in by an anonymous Sparkler) totally endearing or totally creepy. Granted, there's nothing creepy about a happy dancing bear... unless you find large, furry mascots scary beyond all reason (which I do). Send in your favorite terrifying... More  →
