As Defender of the Playful, I must be on near-ceaseless vigil for those acts of extraordinary public silliness, those manifestations of innovative invitations to genuine play, those inventions and intentions that make the world a little more fun.

The Soon-to-be-Coveted Bernie was designed by herself, Webmistress extraordinaire, Julie Wolpers
