Canola oil was originally called rapeseed oil, but rechristened by the Canadian oil industry in 1978 because it was hard to sell something with rape in the name. “Canola” is short for “Canadian oil.”

OH!

A few weeks ago we featured an awesome series of creative dog grooming portraits that were shot at the Intergroom cat and dog grooming conference last year. Intergroom 2014 just took place and this amazing “Super Nintendog” was part of the spectacle, complete with groomers in costume as Bowser and Luigi. 2/3rds of him is the fluffiest Yoshi we’ve ever seen along with a bonus Mario portrait, piranha plant, golden bricks, a 1-up mushroom and Bowser’s spiky tail. It’s a Super Mario Bros. bonanza on one extraordinarily patient poodle.

Visit BuzzFeed for many more photos from Intergroom 2014.
