Bob’s Burgers creator Loren Bouchard is teaming up with blogger Cole Bowden to release a pun-filled Bob’s Burgers cookbook. Bowden’s site, The Bob’s Burgers Experiment, has recreated many of the crazy burgers from the chalkboard in the show so the team-up is a great fit.

Bouchard will be illustrating with the recipes coming from Bowden who, oddly, comes from a family of vegetarians so he rarely even eats burgers.

cup

It’s rare that we pay attention to what’s written on the bags and cups that hold our food, but you’ll want to look a little more closely at your cup next time you eat at Chipotle. The fast food chain’s Cultivating Thought program was first announced back in May, but now we know it will include famous writers Gaiman, Jeffrey Eugenides, Amy Tan, Barbara Kingsolver, Paulo Coelho, and comedian Aziz Ansari decorating their cups and bags.

The words won’t just be straight out of works the authors have already penned, but new material designed to make you think about something you might not have considered. Gaiman, for example, chose to write about refugees for his cup. If you’re not a fan of Chipotle, you can still read everything at the Cultivating Thought website.

bbq

Figures that the world’s biggest BBQ pit would hail from the great state of Texas. It even has a name. “Indisputable Cuz” is 40 tons, 76′ long, and hooks up to an 18-speed Peterbilt truck. There are 24 doors on the smoker and it can cook 4 tons of meat at one time. Four. Tons. It’s also got beer taps, a walk-in cooler, and a spot for your television and stereo so you can really get the party rolling.

Sound good? All you need is a spare $350,000.

This meal masquerading as a bacon sriracha cronut was made by the mad scientists ad DK’s Donuts of Orange in California. The taste is something you won’t soon forget according to 7 Deadly who notes:

However, the first bite makes it clear that the cronut-gimmick is merely a vehicle for the punch-in-the-face flavors of the thick Sriracha glaze and generous amount of candied bacon sprinkled on top.

If you’re looking for something “delicate,” this is not the donut for you. This savory behemoth is a Sriracha-soaked, protein-packed meal that just happens to be on a cronut-like pastry. There’s a faint hint of sugar from the dough, but that quickly gets lost as the spicy, meaty heat overwhelms every square centimeter of your tongue.

This would surely make cronut creator Dominique Ansel cry.

Tell her you’ll give her the moon this Valentine’s Day. Then give her this box of chocolates. Close enough.

It’s got the entire solar system in one box. Each chocolate looks like a different planet so although we can’t travel to them yet, we can at least devour them as sweet chocolates.

beer

Let’s just say that you have a rabbit and that you also like beer. Why not put that rabbit to work? YouTuber Wallace TheMadKing explains:

This event marks the release of an epic accomplishment. I have been collaborating for the past year with my girlfriend’s pet rabbit to create performance art and “happenings” that capture this rabbit’s capabilities and worldly passions. In a million years, neither Wallace nor I would have guessed that our creative endeavors would take this route but after such a long journey we arrive at this significant moment.

And with that, you all set off to start building carts for your dogs, cats, hamsters, goldfish…

KFC may have gone a step too far with its latest creation. The Double Down Dog features a hot dog drizzled with cheese that is then sandwiched in a fried chicken bun. This follow-up to the Double Down Sandwich is being sold in super limited quantities. Participating stores appear to be limited to the Philippines at the moment, and each restaurant will be allowed to sell only 50 each day through January 27th.

At this point, KFC has no plans to bring the hot dog to the U.S.

nood

Well, here’s a fine way to get a month’s caloric allotment in one meal. It’s a traditional Hungarian noodle dish called túrós csusza that (in this version at least) features noodles, bacon fat and sugar along with sour cream and cottage cheese. Food blogger Anna Péter shows you how it’s made and it looks absolutely delicious.

People who commute on public transportation get used to seeing some pretty weird stuff, but a guy wearing a hollowed out watermelon on his head was too much for the residents of Beijing. According to the Daily Telegraph:

One commuter told the Beijing Morning Post he was freaked out by the man who loves to put on the hollowed-out fruit helmet and reported him to police.

“It was so scary last night when I was on the metro,” he said.

“This guy was just hanging around on the train wearing a watermelon mask with a beer bottle … apparently he was totally drunk.”

“I was scared by this watermelon brother too,” said another passenger. “I posted some pictures of him on Weibo.”

Beijing Metro Police questioned the man after being alerted to his location by passengers and subway staff.

Never trust a man wearing a watermelon.

…because they can’t escape being devoured.

Then again, these hedgehog dumplings are almost too cute to eat. You can find them in Yokohama’s Chinatown at a place called Yoseigo which sells all sorts of dim sum. These little guys are first steamed and then deep-fried to give them a little crunch. The spikes on top are even a little sharp, so be careful as you make your way to the custard filling.
