Redditor ablarga picked up a mini Bowser toy in his Happy Meal and… well, I think ablarga said it best when he described Bowser as looking a little “derpy.” So, he set out to give King Koopa a totally glitzy makeover. And you know what? The end result looks great!

I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry. But it looks like your burger is burning. I better get to flipping it with this nifty Doctor Who spatula, which is made from silicone and features a metal handle that’s 11 inches long. It’s even better than the sonic.

But wait. You’re probably saying to yourself, “I’m not eating a burger right now. I’m not at a barbecue. And that spatula isn’t available until October 2014. How are you doing this? What are you?”

Well… I’m a Time Lord? You’re welcome.

Behold the ultimate in late-night, drunken fast food! Yes, what you’re looking at is the cheddar chicken biscuit. It’s half Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuit, and half Chick-Fil-A fried chicken filet, and it was invented by several friends from San Francisco. It looks like someone named Brittany Forks came up with the concept in a moment of sheer genius that gave her “palpitations”.

We’re with you on that Brittany.

Did you know that KFC is offered in over 115 countries and territories throughout the world? That’s a whole lot of fried chicken! Not surprisingly, KFC chains across the world have their own unique menus that cater to local tastes, which means that while most offer basic KFC staples, some chains offer dishes that you can’t find in the U.S. So, here’s a video (courtesy of Buzzfeed) that lists 26 KFC menu items from other countries that you’ve probably never tried.

The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie will be in theaters on August 8th, and it looks like the Turtles have a new gig already lined up. They’re appearing in Pizza Hut commercials touting the wonders of Cheesy Bites. This isn’t the first time they’ve teamed up with the pizza chain. Way back in the ’90s the boys were working to convince you to stop in at Pizza Hut for a slice.

See both commercials after the break.

Did you know that Subway is the largest fast food chain in the world? Or that people in Japan like to have KFC on Christmas? Those factoids were new to me! Anyway, Buzzfeed came up with this pretty interesting video of little-known fast food acts, and it’s definitely worth watching. Enjoy the video–I’m off to go find me some space-Dominos!

brat-lollipop-lol-0614

I’m almost a little ashamed to say it, but this bratwurst lollipop actually looks kinda tasty. The treat is made using a bratwurst patty that’s been dipped in funnel cake batter and then DEEP-FRIED to perfection. Oh, and to top it all off, the lollipop is served with maple syrup. It costs $3.75, and if you happen to be in Madison, Wisconsin for a Mallards’ game, you can find one of these bratwurst pops at the concession stand.

It’s a proven fact that fast food rarely looks as good as it does in the commercials. It’s kind of a bummer, but we all just accept it because, come on, would you actually send your food back so the cook making minimum wage could make your burger a bit more “TV ready?”

The folks at Mediocre Films would, and did. They shot a hidden camera video where they ordered grub from various fast food restaurants (McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Jack-in-the-Box). Then they sent back the inevitable disappointments to see if the staff could make the food look a bit… uh, prettier. Believe it or not, when the fast food staff took their time, they actually cranked out some pretty decent-looking burgers and tacos.

Mario Kart fans will be pleased to know that McDonald’s recently announced that its next round of Happy Meal toys will feature a new line of Mario Kart 8 figures. Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Toad, Donkey Kong, Yoshi and Princess Peach will all be present and accounted for–and plus you’ll get a sweet new visor too. As long as you can get over that somewhat-maniacal grin on the side of the Happy Meal box, you should be good to pick up some new Mario toys. Hooray!
