Waffle House got in on the action, too, and tweeted out a friendly PSA for Bigfoot.
Shannon, who grew up in Chicago, Illinois, and moved to Georgia four years ago, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he chose Waffle House in particular because of its “distinct regional identity” in the South.

But, he said, “I'm sure we'll think about adding Waffle House into the day somehow.”

There’s the extraterrestrial eclipse map for prime eclipse- and UFO-watching spots.

This map of Starbucks locations along the eclipse path is funny, but totally practical.
And then there’s this incredibly random (yet impressive) handiwork from a big Michael Jordan fan.
