It may be hard to believe it, but it’s true: A new year is almost here, which means you might just be in the market for a new 2024 calendar. Luckily for you, there’s an incredibly adorable option that is now available to be downloaded (for free). The TSA‘s iconic yearly canine calendar is finally here, and it features the 15 TSA dogs that made the cut for this year’s calendar selection.

But mind you-the calendar’s purpose isn’t to just honor the calendar winners, rather it is to celebrate the agency‘s more than 1,000 canines that every day work across the US to protect airports and passengers. It’s a difficult job, but someone ought to do it! Every year, the agency trains 300 new dogs who are then tasked to detect the scent of explosives or explosive materials in airports across the country.

Ben, Csimbok, Eci, Duke-LeDuc, Kari, Rocky, and Puk are only a few of the 15 winners featured in the 2024 TSA Canine Calendar. In addition to them, you will also find the winner of the 2023 Cutest Canine Contest winner, whose name is Dina and is a 3-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer explosives detection canine at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas.

If you wish to download the calendar and read some fun facts about the canine winners, you can find it at this link right here.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
