Japanese cat and dog clocks with swishing tails make clock-watching more adorable than ever

Honestly, I’ve never really seen the point in hanging a clock on the wall in your home. Between the time displays on my PC, phone, TV, DVD player, PlayStation, and microwave, I’ve got plenty of ways to tell the current hour and minute without a dedicated timepiece taking up space where I could hang other things, like the California license plate in my living room that simultaneously makes me miss my home state and driving whenever I look at it.

I’m just not convinced that having a wall clock makes your home that much more convenient. However, it can make it a lot cuter, if it’s one of these adorable Japanese dog or cat-shaped clocks with an amazingly lifelike wagging tail.

Throw out your clock! Website has race queen models telling you the time every minute of the day

It’s pretty easy to see the need for most jobs in the motorsports world. The drivers are there to drive the cars, obviously, and the members of the pit crews refill their gas tanks and change their tires during the race.

Ostensibly, one of their roles is to hold umbrellas over the drivers to keep them cool while waiting on the tarmac, but it’s not like the competitors behind the wheels are so dependent on their cars for mobility that they can’t just walk over to the shade and sit down there. No, the true function of race queens is to attract attention to the sponsors ‘ logos printed on what precious little fabric their costumes make use of, and considering that money is as crucial as gas in keeping a race car running, it’s an important job.

The models have just picked up another work responsibility, though: telling you the current time, with this website that displays a new race queen photo every minute of the day.
