watch both their faces go from “courteous TV smile” to “not paid enough for this bullshit”
If you’re someone who never forgets a face, then you will probably remember Hazel Frederick. She’s the woman whose quizzical look was accidentally preserved for television audiences as Mary Tyler Moore tossed her beret into the air during the opening credits of The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Hazel’s identity remained a mystery to nearly everyone until 1996 when Moore was visiting the Minneapolis area for a book signing and was “reunited” with Hazel. Moore invited Hazel to join her on stage and introduced her to 5,000 people as her “co-star.”
Hazel Frederick never earned a dime from her famous cameo in the credits, however, her family says the notoriety she earned was worth a million bucks.

Sergeant Stubby, so named for his lack of a tail, was a stray pitbull found wandering Yale campus by some soldiers there during drill.
"He learned the bugle calls, the drills, and even a modified dog salute as he put his right paw on his right eyebrow when a salute was executed by his fellow soldiers."
He was smuggled into WW1 by a soldier, and allowed to stay when he saluted the man who would later become his commanding officer.
He was sent to the trenches where he was under constant enemy fire for over a month. He was wounded in the leg by a German hand grenade, sent to a hospital to convalesce, then returned to the front lines…
After being wounded in a gas attack, Stubby developed such a sensitivity that he would run and bark and alert the other soldiers of incoming gas attacks AND artillery attacks precious seconds before they occurred, saving countless lives. A canine early warming system.
He would go into no man’s land, find wounded men, shouting in English, And stay with them, barking, until medics arrived.
He once captured a German spy.
The spy, mapping out Allied trenches, tried to call to Stubby, but Stubby got aggressive and then chased down and attacked the spy when he attempted to flee, allowing Allied soldiers to capture him.
For this he was awarded the rank of Sergeant- the first dog to do so.
After helping the Allies retake Château-Thierry in France, Sergeant Stubby was sewn a uniform by the women of the town, on which to wear his many medals.
He went on to meet multiple Presidents, dignitaries and ambassadors and become the mascot of Georgetown University football.
There is nothing about this that is not magical.
HIS NAME IS SERGEANT STUBBY
Always reblog Stubby.
That’s SERGEANT Stubby.
"I am a Millennial. Generation Y. Born between the birth of AIDS and 9/11, give or take. They call us “the Global Generation”. We are known for our entitlement and narcissism. Some say it’s because we’re the first generation where every kid gets a trophy just for showing up. Others think it’s because social media allows us to post every time we fart or have a sandwich for all the world to see. But it seems that our one defining trait is a numbness to the world, an indifference to suffering"
