last night my brother tied me in a game of connect four. no connections were made. cats game.
(also learned that "cats game" means a tie game. did not know that. weird.) i didn't think a tie was possible, but here is the photographic proof. blows my mind.

here's a pic of my cats my sister just sent me in a text...

Polish-born Stephan Bibrowski began his American show career in 1901 with the Barnum & Bailey Circus. "Lionel, the Lion-Faced Boy" stood on the platform and told his life story to an intrigued crowd.

In private life, Stephan was a talented watercolorist who enjoyed painting landscapes. As a boy, he had aspired to be a dentist, but knew he could be more successful in the circus. After nearly fifteen years with Coney Island's Dreamland Circus sideshow, he returned to Germany in 1928 and became a German citizen. He died in 1932 of a heart attack.
