If fairs have taught us anything, it’s that pretty much anything can be fried, put on a stick and sold for an absorbent price. In that spirit, the folks at Peep My Eats created this deep fried Big Mac that was made by coating the burger with eggs, covering it with breadcrumbs, and dipping it in the deep fat fryer and impaling it on a stick for quick and easy food porn.

Check out a video of of this abomination being birthed into the world after the break…

If you want to make your table corners kid friendly and simultaneously adorable, then check out these animal-shaped corner protectors. Applied with simple double sided tape, they will prevent the bruises and inevitable fits of swearing that come with banging any part of your body on a corner. They will also make it look like the surface is being consumed by a cat, bear and frog who bit off way more than they could chew.

robot pop tart

While undergoing a functionality test that involved interacting with a dog, this NAO humanoid robot was K.O.ed by a Pop-Tart… with hilarious effect. It looks like a consultation with a toaster will be needed before it can tame the wild pastry. On the plus side, we now know how to suppress a robot uprising.

You may have thought that deep-fried butter was the pinnacle of outlandish fair food, but the powers that be at the San Diego County Fair have found something else to tempt you away from dollars: deep-fried Starbucks coffee.

The concoction reportedly consists of deep fried balls of dough stuffed with ground coffee, dusted with sugar, topped with whipped cream and served on a stick.

The fried coffee is available at the Bacon-A-Fair booth, although there’s no word yet on how it actually tastes.

If you aren’t familiar with Crystal Pepsi, it was part of the clear soda fad that came and went quickly the early 1990s. However, we are now learning that it may actually be poised for a comeback after competitive eater / Crystal Pepsi fan Kevin Strahle tweeted that he had received a letter from the company on Crystal Pepsi stationery that stated:

“We’ve had customers ask us to bring back their favorite products before, but never with your level of enthusiasm and humor… We definitely hear you and your followers and we think you’ll be happy with what’s in store… Stay tuned.”

AdAge confirmed with PepsiCo that the letter is genuine, but reps wouldn’t reveal any additional details other than “Crystal Pepsi fans are going to be happy with what we have planned”.
