As and when, Sofa presents a quick round up of bits of the internet – that are a little bit more random than normal.

The nearly 22-foot-tall, 2,000-pound giant traveled 12 hours from the city of Chimalhuacán, where it was built for the La EpifanÍa del Señor church in the central Mexican state of Zacatecas, where it now resides.
