How do you deep fry tequila? Easy. This recipe by Oh, Bite It makes it simple by cutting up pieces of angel food cake, dipping them in tequila, and then throwing them in the deep fryer. She even dusted them with powdered sugar to look like the salt that’s usually on the rim of the glass.

Those thirsty for a drink in Japan can get a Jumbo size drink that’s so big that it comes with holes for two straws. You can share it with a friend or try and suck down the whole thing yourself. This special size, roughly the equivalent of two Medium US sodas, is only available for a limited time, and if you have a friend, then it’s a fun idea. Those without a friend will find it a sad reminder of just how lonely their life is.

There are all kinds of burgers and just as many buns to hold them, but this blue burger bun designed to look like Earth has got to be the weirdest of the lot. It’s even got green accents to look like the continents. You can find this very weird chicken burger at Japanese science museum Orbi Yokama. Try it if you dare.

cake

Everyone loves cake, even when it’s a lie. Although you may think all cakes are made by a baker with mad skills, there are actually machines that will ice a cake to perfection. These videos show the machines in action, but be warned. They are mesmerizing and they will make you hellbent on having a slice of cake sometime today.

This beautiful TARDIS teacup is the perfect way to sip tea and while away the afternoon. From the product page:

Each cup and saucer are thrown on the potters wheel, hand painted with black clay & various glazes, hand carved and then stamped with custom made clay stamps that I made just for this item.

Glazed on the inside with starry white & blue glazes and on the outside in my own version of Tardis blue (non-toxic), which contains hints of darker blue, lighter blues and hazy green nebula mists.

You can order it with or without the spoon and saucer, and since it’s made to order, takes about 4-6 weeks to arrive at your door.

This isn’t a prototype but an actual motorcycle commissioned by meat company Hormel and it runs on bacon grease fuel. It was featured in a documentary titled Driven by Bacon and is called the Hormel Black Label Bacon Motorcycle. The bike runs on B-100 biodiesel which is made from bacon waste and runs about $3.50 a gallon and, yes, it does leave behind the smell of bacon as you cruise down the street. They’re looking for volunteers to drive it from Austin, MN to San Diego, CA if you’re up for the job.

Upon witnessing a horribly rude hotel manager, John Cleese was inspired to create the series Fawlty Towers which featured Cleese as the horribly rude hotel owner, Basil Fawlty. The show only aired for two seasons in 1975 and 1979, but now you can return to the series thanks to Fawlty Towers: The Dining Experience. This interactive dinner theater has Basil Fawlty along with his wife Sybil, and Manuel, the Spanish waiter, all serving your meal with typical Fawlty rudeness.

There’ already a bar in Brooklyn with a TARDIS bathroom, but there’s a whole restaurant themed to everyone’s favorite Time Lord hidden in upstate New York. Redditor jacquelinesarah said the following about her visit to The Pandorica in Beacon, New York:

I spent the day in the quiet little artist town of Beacon, NY and passed a restaurant called “Pandorica” as I walked down the main street. I smiled to myself but didn’t think much of it. On the way back, I looked inside and saw the giant mural of the exploding TARDIS. Of course, I then ran in and started talking to the owner (dressed head to toe in TARDIS blue). She took me around the entire restaurant pointing out every tiny detail, from the sunflowers on the tables to the “fish fingers” (aka french toast sticks) and custard on the dessert menu. I told her that I’ll be moving to London this autumn (the mecca, really) and she replied that she’s actually from there. It made a lot of sense seeing how much British influence is in the food–they do an afternoon tea that looks lovely.

Seems like the perfect place for Whovians to stop for a bite to eat.

The sushi detail is knitted into the sock with colored thread instead of being printed. Seven versions are available: Masuzushi (trout sushi), Shrimp, Octopus, Red Caviar, Tuna, Salmon, and Egg. These Sushi Socks made in Toyama, Japan make a great gift for fans of Japanese cuisine!

I wonder if they come with a side of wasabi?
