Everyone loves a good coffee break, and in turns out that the pooches at the Kitsap Humane Society in Washington also enjoy heading over to their local Starbucks for a refreshing treat. Molly Clark, a volunteer at the shelter, likes to take one of the shelter’s dogs each Tuesday for a “Puppuccino” (it’s just a little cup of whipped cream, so no coffee involved) at Starbucks.

Aside from getting a chance to enjoy a tasty dollop of whip cream, the shelter notes that the dogs often get a kick out of car ride. Molly only brings along dogs that won’t be stressed out by the experience, but she does bring puppuccinos back to the shelter for the dogs who aren’t able to leave.

The puppuccino-serving Starbucks posts notices about the dogs, so if customers are interested in adopting, they can do so. Also, cute pics like the ones below tend to be great for striking at the heart of the Internet. [click to continue…]

Here Comes The Mufgel


Say hello to the Cronut’s slightly demented cousin: the “Mufgel”. Scot Rossillo of Brooklyn’s The Bagel Store (the same joint behind the famous rainbow bagel) semi-invented the muffin/bagel monstrosity this past July.

Rossillo noted to Gothamist that inspiration came in the form of a radio commercial that actually coined the name “Mufgel” while poking fun at crazy food trends in NYC. Yes, we’re living in a world where jokes based on food crazes become new food crazes. Nothing is sacred.

Rossillo also noted to Gothamist that he makes 42 Mufgels each day, and he usually sells out by closing time. Well, the Mufgel looks delicious, but is it just me or does the name sound like a terrible hair-care product? Check out more pics and the inspirational radio commercial below. [click to continue…]


Paul Joachim with The Chocolate Genius made this toothsome tribute to the greatest Starfleet engineer of all-time.

Sure, this edible bust of Montgomery Scott from Star Trek might look like it’s made from bronze, but it’s actually made from chocolate! Joachim made the sculpture for the Cake: The Final Frontier collaboration, which celebrates Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]


In the Star Trek universe, Isolinear chips are perfect for storing large amounts of data, but they make terrible drink coasters. I mean, if you spill a little Andorian Ale on a chip, and all is lost. So, play it safe, and use these isolinear chip coasters instead. They look just like the real thing, and they’ll help prevent water rings on your captain’s chair.

Rhode Island-based brewery Narragansett recently announced the release of a new beer in their H.P. Lovecraft-inspired series: the White Ship White IPA.

Each beer included in the series is inspired by a different Lovecraft story and, as the name implies, the newest ale is an homage to Lovecraft’s The White Ship.

Here’s what Narragansett Beer has to say about the brew: [click to continue…]

I’ve been playing Pokémon Go for a week or so now, and while I’m becoming something of an expert at catching them, I still have a few questions about these crazy creatures. Like, how the heck do they eat?

Thankfully, Wassabi Productions came up with this highly researched video that shows us how all the best Pokémon get their grub on. Prepare for weirdness. [click to continue…]

star wars disney poster mugs

Old school Disney attractions posters are all wonderful pieces of vintage art. Everyone has their favorite—mine, for instance, is the classic Haunted Mansion poster.

Well, some of these posters got a Star Wars makeover for mugs. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

With the film Shin Godzilla (aka Godzilla Resurgence) premiering in Japan on July 29th, Tokyo’s indoor amusement park Namja Town will be serving up some Kaiju-inspired dishes and desserts.

The designs are pretty clever if I do say so myself. Check them out below. [click to continue…]

Chris Pratt recently tried making a Donald Duck pancake for his three-year-old son, Jack. As you’ll see in the video below, Jack was quick to point out that his Dad needs a little bit of practice with his pancakes. He was being nice—the creature above is an abomination.

Overwatch cosplay is getting downright clever. This time Vanessa Wedge and Auzzie L. dressed up as D.Va and Soldier: 76, respectively. Soldier: 76’s dad outfit is spot on, and the shoot looks like it was a lot of fun to pull together.

If you’re wondering why D.Va is snacking on Doritos, here’s a bit of context. Per Overwatch‘s backstory, D.Va used to be a pro StarCraft 2 player. Fans sort of took that “pro gamer” idea and ran with it, and they started cranking out artwork and cosplay that features D.Va doing stereotypical gamer things, like, of course, snacking on Doritos and chugging Mountain Dew.
