  • Who's Eating Who?: Terrifying Cthurkey Turkey Dinner

    Who's Eating Who?: Terrifying Cthurkey Turkey Dinner
    cthulhu-christmas-dinner-1.jpg Note: I moved this post up from last year for relevance, originally posted December 2013. This is the Cthulhu inspired Christmas dinner made by Texan Rusty Eulberg and his wife. It consists of a bacon layered turkey (although way more bacon definitely wouldn't hurt anything) with crab legs underneath and a couple octopus tentacles poking out of its ass. Would you eat it? "God no." I love how easily you lie to yourself.
    According to Eulberg, he and wife Jennifer Robledo "wanted to do something unique for Christmas dinner with friends of ours. Jenny is a big fan of Cthulhu so we went and bought some crab legs and some octopus and bacon and cooked them all separate and slapped them together on a plate, and that was it. The next year I made a Cthicken; the same thing using squid instead of octopus and a chicken." Eulberg says, "The universal reaction was, 'Oh my God, I couldn't eat that.' But each individual piece was cooked separately; all I did was set them together on the plate. It was delicious.
    Ah, so all the different pieces were cooked separately. In that case I call all the crab legs. "But--" But nothing, pass the butter. "You can't have ALL the crab legs." I can and I will. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be at the kid's table. They get me over there. Keep going for two more shots of the taste sensation.
  • Just In Time For Thanksgiving: Pills To Make Your Farts Smell Like Roses Or Chocolate

    Just In Time For Thanksgiving: Pills To Make Your Farts Smell Like Roses Or Chocolate
    fart-masking-pills.jpg Seen here looking like hipster Clown Santa, French inventor Christian Poincheval poses with a CG version of a pill he invented that can allegedly make farts smell like roses, violets or chocolate. The pills contain 100% all-nature ingredients (i.e. fennel, blueberries and seaweed) and cost ?10 (~8, ~$12.50) per jar of 60 pills. Obviously, I recommend taking at least two bottles before sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner.
    Mr Poincheval said he came up with the idea for the pills one evening when he was enjoying a hearty meal with some friends. "Our farts were so smelly we were nearly suffocated. Something had to be done," he said. So he began researching natural ingredients that would reduce flatulence and after months of experimentation came up with the recipe for his pills.
    "Our farts were so smelly we were nearly suffocated. Something had to be done." Yeah, no f***ing kidding something had to be done. You should have FOUND SOME NEW FRIENDS. You know, some friends that can exercise a little discretion and not let their sphincters go flapping around like flags in a breeze. Thanks to Thaylor H, who informed the best way to mask the smell of a fart is to do it at least 20-yards away from another person, preferably in the woods (the bears will just have to deal with it).

    laser-pumpkin-pie.jpg Because tomorrow is Thanksgiving, this is a short video of a pumpkin pie being laser-etched with the image of a pirate ship. Or maybe it's supposed to be one of those Pilgrim ships. *reading Youtube description* Ah, it's the Mayflower. Damn, it would have been cooler if it was a pirate ship. Keep going for the video, then make sure to down at least a half dozen laxatives tomorrow morning to make room for the feast.

    Heck Yeah, Pluto: Planets Of The Solar System Glassware
    planet-glassware-1.jpg This is the Planetary Glass Set being sold by ThinkGeek ($50). It features all nine planets of the solar system (f*** yeah, Pluto -- low-five!) and the sun. The eight "real" planet glasses are all 10-oz, the Sun is 16-oz, and Pluto is 4-oz. So, which one do you want to drink out of? Actually, I don't want to know. "Uranus." I JUST SAID I DIDN'T WANT TO KNOW. Now you're weird to me. Keep going for a couple more shots in case you've ever wondered what's REALLY on the inside of the sun (SPOILER: orange juice!).
  • Ultra Conservative Christian Lady Goes To Museum, Tries To Debunk Evolution, Fails Beyond Miserably

    Ultra Conservative Christian Lady Goes To Museum, Tries To Debunk Evolution, Fails Beyond Miserably
    crazy-lady-goes-to-the-museum.jpg This is a video of ultra conservative Christian Megan Fox (not that Megan Fox, trust me) taking a trip to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago to debunk their 'Evolving Earth' exhibit and audit it for a liberal (aka scientific, in her mind) bias. It starts off awful and ends worse, and that's even looking past the shoddy camerawork (which wasn't easy). I posted three short teaser highlights for the video first, then the whole 30-minute thing in case you really, really like torturing yourself. Although I'd still suggest you try hanging yourself from the ceiling with some of those giant meat-hooks in your back first. Keep going for the videos while I cross all my fingers and my toes Megan is just a very convincing troll.

    The Purefresh will hide the hideous smells your body creates in the bathroom
    We’re all worried with how we smell. We use scented soaps, deodorants, toothpastes, laundry detergent, and sprays to hide the natural smells our bodies produce. The one thing that is the hardest to hide, is the delightful aroma left behind after using the bathroom. When you have guests over and nature calls, you can’t exactly say no, but you can try your best to cover your tracks so to speak. ...
