nutella

I’d like to nominate German furniture designer Daniel Schlobloch for the Nobel Peace Prize because he’s figured out how to cut down Nutella-based violence.

Introducing the Nutella Lock.

The Nutella Lock is an acrylic lock you place over your precious Nutella jar. It comes with two keys, so you can grant access to a trusted individual for sharing or safekeeping. Of course, there may be an uptick in murder if it gets really bad one night and NEED that other key.

Not that I have a Nutella problem. Nope. Not me.

Sadly, he’s not currently shipping to the US, but if anyone wants to make me one, that would be awesome.

wonder woman lunch box

Daniel and Sarah may think they’re decent parents, but it turns out they were exposing their daughter to horribly violent images and ideas by letting her carry a Wonder Woman lunchbox.

Luckily, their daughter’s school stepped in and put an end to that. They sent a note home with the OBVIOUS HOOLIGAN CHILD that clearly told them she can’t bring the hideous piece of warmongering propaganda pictured above back to school.

Clearly, Wonder Woman is a danger to children because she’s a superhero and superheroes are just false idols promoting violence.

Y’know, I’d be outraged about this, but I’m honestly too gobsmacked to even work up the energy to be mad.

Read the note and see another picture of the offending lunchbox after the break.

international peace day mcwhopper

We all know that Burger King and McDonald’s have been bitter rivals for decades. The Big Mac vs. Whopper debate is just one of many in the battle known as the “Burger Wars”.

Surprisingly, Burger King extended an olive branch to their competitor and suggested they call a cease fire and work together to sell a McWhopper hybrid burger. It would be available for one-day-only in honor of Peace One Day, a nonprofit group that works to raise awareness of the International Day of Peace.

BK set up a fantastic website with the proposal at mcwhopper.com and took out full-page ads in both the New York Times and Chicago Tribune with an open letter to McDonald’s. Honestly, it’s pretty amazing and all McDonald’s would need to do is say “yes.”

Unfortunately, it turns out that giving peace with BK a chance isn’t what Mickey D’s had in mind.

I like Star Wars and I like cookies and it’s neat that you get your choice of Darth Vader’s breathing noises or R2’s beeps and boops when opening these jars, but this seems like an alarm system to me. R2 or Vader will narc on you when you get a cookie and that is so totally Dark Side.

It may be designed as a gelatin mold, but if someone doesn’t use this Captain America Shield Mold to make a 10-inch ice shield, I will be sorely disappointed. Make some Cap shield ice, put it in a big bowl of blue punch and that’s a party right there.

I mean, you can make a Jell-O shield too. Heck, make a chocolate one! Make all sorts of things. Just don’t use it in the oven because you don’t need melted plastic everywhere.

QMx has just debuted their second set of Firefly pint glasses and a new bowl set that Jaybe Cobb would probably love.

The ceramic bowl set is dishwasher, microwave and oven safe, so it’s versatile just like our Cantonian hero, while the Firefly pint glasses feature Wash’s dinosaurs and Kaylee’s parasol.

Today in “I have no idea why these exist, but I have to show you”, I present these Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman spatulas. They won’t help you leap tall buildings or transform into an Amazonian princess, but you can use the Trinity to make eggs. Go you!

What’s next? Cinderella in your scrambled eggs?

spork main

It’s a fork, spoon, and knife in one. Meet the Tritensil. It was created by a design firm called MAP, who partnered with 300-year-old department store Fortnum & Mason. Interestingly enough, F&M sold the first fork/spoon/knife in their 1914 Christmas catalogue for Army officers.

The Tritensil is an updated version of the concept and they’re making it available in bio-based plastic or stainless steel right and left handed versions.

“No, it’s not the best fork, it’s not the best knife, and it’s not the best spoon. We don’t think it ever will be,” Map designer Scott Barwick told Fast Company. “But the spork is a very difficult design problem, and we’ve tackled it as best we can. The result, we think, is a really strong design.”

disney hamster

We love a certain Tiny Hamster around here, so many thanks to Elijah J. for tipping us to a new video featuring Tiny Hamster’s visit to Walt Disney World.

TH does all the same stuff we like to do when we’re visiting the Happiest Place On Earth, like eating Churros and Dole Whips, going on rides and enjoying the fireworks.

Watch it after the break.
