Well a happy 111th birthday to everyone’s favorite sci-fi prophet, Eric Arthur Blair! (You know him  by his pen name, George Orwell.)

This time last year, a pair of enterprising artists in the Netherlands came up with a creative way to mark Orwell’s birthday: they put a party hat on each of the surveillance cameras in their hometown! You can see those pictures here. Enjoy the irony. 😉
