TO all the carrot-hating, “ranga”-slanging, “ginga”-hitting titian-teasing nasty pasties out there: It is time for you to stop.
To any redhead that has ever copped the Ginger Meggs or Pippi Longstocking references, this is for you.
Allow me and my long red locks to speak out on behalf of all of redheads who have suffered at the mercy of insensitive people for a very long time.
To the nons, we redheads are the people that, for some reason, have a head you take liberty in picking on, and then say: “I was only joking” when you’ve clearly been a rude (borderline racist) bogan that somehow doesn’t see how you bolstered your seriously low self-esteem by attacking others.
THE world’s largest gathering of redheads got together when more than 5000 people with red and ginger hair came together in the Netherlands town of Breda.

Called Roodharigendag in Dutch, the festival is in its eighth year and is the largest to date.
The two-day festival is a gathering of people with natural red hair, but also focused on art related to the colour red.

Activities during the festival are lectures, workshops and demonstrations which are aimed specifically at red-haired people.
The redheads broke the Guinness Book of Records with a photo opportunity of 1,672 people accompanied by redhead Ronald McDonald, who was the sponsor of the event.

Guys, guys: We have news about the ginger seal who was shunned by her pod! And it’s good news! After being captured on heartbreaking film by photographer Anatoly Strakhov, the abandoned baby seal — now named Nafanya, after a Soviet cartoon character, to whom she bears a slight resemblance — now has a comfy, nurturing home at the Akvatoria dolphinarium. And unsurprisingly, she is a big hit with the crowds! Awww, it makes you want to hug the Earth!
In case you forgot, Nafanya was abandoned as a seal pup by the rest of her pod because of her different coloring. But after being photographed by Strakhov, she was taken in by the dolphinarium and given a home. At the time, she was thought to be nearly blind, but her vision is better than zookeepers originally thought. Her vision is only impaired in bright sunlight, which makes us think about a baby ginger seal wearing sunglasses, and that is a wonderful picture to have in one’s brain on a Monday morning.
