From jdv, and it's about time: Saudi camel beauty pageant cracks down on cosmetic enhancements.

From Meg McReynolds, and it's hilarious: Bros., Lecce: We Eat at The Worst Michelin Starred Restaurant, Ever

From Wally, and this sounds like the imaginary holidays greeting card companies create: Pantone unveils Color of the Year for 2022. This is a niche story about writing/publishing, but it's a good read: Files found while looking for something else. A company with actual personality: A Customer Discovered Their $350 Lego Set Was Missing Pieces. The Company’s Response Was Brilliant. This is long, but clever: Animation vs. Arcade Games

From David Gloier, and this is nightmare fuel: Giant, cryptic ocean dweller filmed roaming the deep sea.

Outstanding links from C. Lee. First, and it's thoughtful, it's What’s Wrong With Shortcuts? Well: Fashion History’s Most Flustering Flex: The Codpiece. This is certainly chilling: We Should Probably Talk About L’Oréal’s Dark Past. This is terrific: Experts floored by students’ study of endangered sea snail.
