St. Anthony's Day
Smoked horsemeat was on the menu in honor of the patron saint of animals (who seems to have taken the day off). On the eve of Saint Anthony's Day, many folks ride their horses through the narrow cobblestone streets of San Bartolome (near Madrid, Spain) during the "Luminarias." It's a tradition that dates back 500 years and it's meant to purify (some might say <italics>season </italics>is a more apt word) the critters with the smoke of bonfires and protect them (counterintuitive, no?) for the year ahead.

Meanwhile, temperatures of 120 degrees at the big tennis event in Melbourne caused some folks to hallucinate a mixed triples event featuring Patrick Star (no relation to Patrick McEnroe), Victoria Azarenka, and a humble kitchen sponge who goes by the name of Bob and prefers square pants to no pants. (See next frame.)

No Trousers Tube Ride
This rather bawdy-sounding event is part of the "Global No Pants Subway Ride" where people board trains in the middle of winter without trousers and act as if nothing is amiss. This here charming scene was captured as an underground passed through King's Cross station in London on January 12.

Islamic congregation prep
Continuing in our somewhat disorienting vein, here we have a Bangladeshi Muslim volunteer working on a jute tent (kind of like a jute joint, just without the jute box) before the big shindig on the banks of the Turag River.

One brave soul takes the bull by the horns while another tries to get over the hump in Alanganallor, India. For your information, <italics>Jallikattu</italics> is an ancient, heroic (some rational individuals might question the use of that word) taming sport that the Tamils play during the harvest festival of Pongal.

Cristian Ronaldo and Pele
Kids these days ... The bestowal of the FIFA Balloon d'Or 2013 World Footballer of the Year award on Mr. Ronaldo was crashed by a wily street urchin (see if you can spot him) who reportedly made off with the soccer star's billfold and Pele's pocket watch during the gala evening in Zurich.

The pair were preparing for an upcoming canine-human pairs competition.
