pizza thrower

People of Earth! That Pizza Thrower we mentioned? The life-size functioning vehicle based on the pizza-shooting tank thing that was sold as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy back in 1989? It has appeared at Comic-Con International at San Diego. And while Pizza Hut may have funded its creation simply to tie-in to marketing for the new, sure to be ridiculous Michael Bay movie, I think we can all agree on one point: this is an amazingly absurd thing that now exists.

Below the break, you shall see video footage of the Pizza Thrower launching its odd, fake pizzas through the air. With gusto!

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.

The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series involved the heroes using a lot of questionable gadgets and vehicles, almost as if they were there just so toys could be sold. One example was the Pizza Thrower, released in 1989. This was basically a tank that fired entire pizza pies at villains, which is crazy because turtles know that pizza is delicious and should never be thrown away (even the commercial advertising the toy admitted this weapon made no sense).

But now this sucker exists in real life! Tying in with the upcoming live-action movie that is already dividing fans, Pizza Hut has teamed up with Synn Labs and their affiliate Special Effects Unlimited to create a life-size, working Pizza Thrower for Comic-Con International 2014. This isn’t the first time Pizza Hut has done a Turtle related ad campaign (remember when they rebooted the heroes as a rock band and sold the “Coming Out of Their Shells” album?), but I think it’s fair to say that no one expected the company to fund a tank that is designed to launch pizza 30 feet through the air.

I think this week’s “unnecessary spending” award goes to one “uhcougars1151″ from Houston, Texas. Recently, the Redditor indulged in some imbibing and used Uber for a ride to a nearby bar@mdash;and when I say nearby, I mean that Google Maps estimated that the 82-foot journey would’ve taken approximately one minute to walk. Maybe longer if he kept stumbling and falling.

And the cost? Well, despite using the “25 percent off uberX this summer” deal, the total fare came to $4.28. He admits:

“After a night of fairly heavy drinking, I woke up to find I took a very unnecessary cab ride.”

Yeah, I think unnecessary is a bit of an understatement.

Well, I’m not too sure how William here is able to pour a beer with his forehead. I’m thinking witchcraft. Sorcery. Weird science-y stuff.

That, or he has a very sticky forehead.

This Japanese cat cafe located in Tokyo’s Kichijoji is the most adorable cafe ever, with or without cats. It’s called Temari no Ouchi and it opened a year ago and serves a selection of food and drinks to its cat-loving patrons. Admission is just $11.81 on weekdays and $14.80 on weekends and holidays. It looks like a wonderful place to relax, for cats and people. As Kotaku notes, it looks like it was influenced by Studio Ghibli anime.
