You've probably never seen a bowler knock down a strike quite like this. I mean, what are the chances?

We are thrilled to announce that our friend Coop
, famous rock poster illustrator and fine artist, is joining us at our Weekend of Wonder
extravaganza, September 18-20 in Riverside, California.
Cute pictures of cats are such a big part of what makes the internet great, to Boing Boing anyways, that we couldn't possibly put on the Weekend of Wonder with out "kittehs" being involved. Luckily for us, we happen to be friends with Perre DiCarlo!
Perre’s book Kick Litter won nine design and comedy awards and was featured in HOW’s Design Annual. At Weekend of Wonder, he’ll present his 9 steps to convince your cat to give up the litter box and use the potty instead.
We couldn't be more excited, the Weekend of Wonder is packed with incredible presentations, workshops and group activities! For three days Happy Mutants are taking over a fantastic resort we have already visited and fallen in love with. You will too. So come play with us!
Register here to join us at Boing Boing's Weekend of Wonder.
