Start off the day right by sharing your cup of coffee with either Rocket Raccoon or Groot as cute Funko Pop! mugs.

They both hold 12-ounces of your favorite caffeinated beverage, and as far as I know, the Rocket mug wont talk back or murder you if you accidentally drop it.

Starting on Dec. 1st, McDonald’s chains in Niigata Prefecture will be offering a 48-piece bucket of McNuggets for 1,800 yen ($15). If you’re counting, that’s eight more than the 40 piece McNugget bucket that’s available in the US.

The deal is part of a promotional tie-in for a idol pop group called NGT48, which is an off-shoot of the super popular idol group, AKB48.

NGT48 sounds a lot like “Nugget 48” after all.

When you purchase a 48-nugget set, you’ll receive a promotional container that’s decorated with images of NGT48 members. Chains in the area will also offer paper tray covers and limited-edition, collectible commemorative cards with each order.

The promotional sale will continue until those Niigata chains run out of the special packages.

Redditor marauder09 takes his booze very seriously. In fact, he went so far as to build an amazing speakeasy-style bar in his home. It’s got everything, including a fine assortment of whiskeys, vintage decor, and more cocktail gizmos and accessories than you could shake a… well, a cocktail shaker at.

Take a closer look at all the details in the gallery below.

Tasty food pops up quite a bit in the Game of Thrones narrative. So, it’s fitting that Michelle Wibowo, a sugar artist and cake designer would use her talents to make a gingerbread version of King’s Landing (from the HBO title sequence) for the Taste of London 2015 festival.

Who knew that the Coca-Cola Polar Bear was such a joker? A YouTuber named EXI snagged the video posted below of Coca-Cola’s mascot at Atlanta, Georgia’s World of Coca-Cola museum playfully teasing some of the visitors.

I’m pretty confident that Mr. Polar Bear really likes his job. Plus, that suit is just awesome.

Dragon Ball fans might need to plan a trip to visit Danke Dinning. The Nagoya, Japan-based restaurant serves edible Dragon Balls. Who knew they were so easy to find?

The Dragon Balls are included in a hot-pot style meal called “Dragon Ball Nabe”. The restaurant makes the balls using collagen jelly and the tiny stars are made using carrots.

After watching Master sushi chef Hiroyuki Terada perform a work of art in the video below, I’m convinced that a Big Mac is better in sushi form.

Master chef Terada transformed the burgers while still using all of the original ingredients—everything, from the buns to the patty make an appearance in the final dish.

You may have heard about the controversy surrounding Starbucks plain red cup this year. Starbucks claims the minimalist design isn’t intended to be part of a “war on Christmas”, rather it’s supposed to be blank canvas for customers to create their own stories. Carrah Aldridge, an Ohio-based artist, knows all about that.

She uses the cups as her canvas, and she creates a wide range of cool, creative art pieces using only sharpies, a white gel pen and copic markers. She posts her creations to her Instagram, and you can check out a selection of her astounding work after the break.

Shrimp, as the film Forrest Gump taught me, is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, broil it, fry it and now you can sleep on it too. This shrimp-shaped neck pillow looks delicious and comfy at the same time–and that’s a pretty hard thing to pull off.
