FestiFools 2016 | April 3, 2016: What a day for the 10th Annual FestiFools Street Party!
April 3, 2016: What a day for the 10th Annual FestiFools Street Party!

This is a follow-up to our previous study. Here, we seek to control for any possible effects of time of day. Specifically, will the public’s response to 3-month-old photographs vary depending on whether the images depict daytime or nighttime goings-on? Please share your reactions in the comments below. (Why pay college students to serve as study subjects when Relish readers will give us mountains of data for free?)

FestiFools 2016 | The Ann Arbor District Library again unleashed its Robot Invasion of FestiFools. They make the robots ridiculously cute, so we humans won’t suspect anything until it’s too late for us to stop our ultimate subjugation. (Notice those retro Frond hats? The AADL brought back a classic from FestiFools 2010. Très chic!)

FestiFools 2016 | Max and Rico did their clown antics up and down Main St. Here, the shtick is Max hypnotizing Rico — making him fall asleep on the asphalt, bark like a dog, sleepwalk, etc. The kids LOVED it!
