Pop Art Beats Pop Music, Anyway

Happy birthday to the late Andy Warhol, who was born on this day in 1928. Jane is kindly allowing Daria to portray the artist here, perhaps as some kind of post-modern experiment involving artist vs. subject. Or not.

Today is also National Root Beer Float Day, so now Jake can switch out his root beer in a frosty cold can for a frosty cold mug topped with ice cream.
