“Video cameras that use video cassettes.” Hmm. That's the first time I've seen that particular formulation (at an airport, stadium, etc.) as an attempt to clarify the increasingly blurry distinction between still and video cameras. Only problem: “video cameras that use video cassettes” are well on their way to becoming obsolete!
Yesterday was the Kentucky Derby, which is often called "the most exciting two minutes in sports." But last Saturday, I was getting some good laughs at a very different kind of race: the 4th Annual Petco Chihuahua Races. I could tell you all about it, but I think this video I took speaks for itself:

More videos and a few pictures after the jump.
