Play With Your Food

hot dog proposal header

When I think about romantic foods, the hot dog doesn’t come to mind. However, the questionable meat product has special meaning to a couple surnamed Wang and Chen. It seems Wang met Chen in Thailand inside a bakery that sold hot dogs. So, when Wang proposed to his girlfriend, he took the hot dog factor and added in the 1,001 days they’ve known each other. And that’s the story of how someone proposed used 1,001 hot dogs.

Chen said yes so apparently the smell of 1,001 hot dogs in one place wasn’t overpowering enough to deter her.

eggs

The inclusion of eggs makes just about anything better. You can fry them, bake them, put them on a sandwich, mix them into cups – the list goes on. Besides being delicious, they’re beautiful. Bright yellow yolks, runny whites – Claire Thomas captures a ton of egg sexiness in a short appropriately titled, “Eggs.”

Watch the video after the break. You may want to go purchase a dozen eggs first because you’re going to crave them.

chocolate bathroom 1

Bathroom sweets aren’t the same as bathroom suites, but consumers don’t always use the correct word when they search on Bathrooms.com. The CEO of the company, Ian Monk, said they decided answer searches for “bathroom sweets” with a literal interpretation. They worked with Choccywoccydoodah to make an entire bathroom suite with Belgian chocolate fixtures. It’s packed with calories (an estimated 9.4 million of them) and is actually being sold online for $133,000 at Bathroom Sweets.

The chocolate set comes with a tub, toilet, sink, and bidet, and the components are available separately. If kept at room temperature, the chocolate pieces supposedly have a six month shelf life. In case it’s not clear, you are not actually supposed to use them – only eat them.

weird commercial copy

You know when you’re on your way to work and you’re so hungry, and I mean like I’m-hallucinating-and-totally-starving-hungry, and the whole world around you starts to morph into tasty snacks? In this Pepsi commercial, a commuter gets a hankering for a hot dog, and then he “imagines” that the subway train is actually a giant chain of hot dogs. Nothing weird about that at all.

Watch the commercial after the break…

chocolate lego 1

Want to build a LEGO castle out of your food? Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi has achieved that dream by designing edible chocolate LEGO bricks. He fashioned several molds – most likely from silicone – for melted chocolate, and once the pieces cool, they look and function exactly like LEGO bricks. Just imagine the dessert possibilities. I wish I could order the molds!

Check out more pics of the edible building blocks after the break.

heads

Redditor AirmanElmo took a razor to a delicious green apple and created this creepy shrunken head. Once he made the cuts to create the basic face, he let it sit in the Las Vegas heat. After a week this is the result.

Keep this one in mind when Halloween rolls around and you want to scare the life out of the neighborhood kids.

spiro pancake

If you ever played with a Spirograph as a kid, you know how much fun they were. You may have also wondered how your spiroskills might have an application in your future daily life.

It turns out that your ability to spiro may have a real world application thanks to the Pangraph.

Pancakes in amazing geometric shapes? Bring on the syrup!

Apparently, Studio Ghibli doesn’t follow orthodox interview procedures. One applicant, Yonebayashi, told Livedoor News that at one point in a final interview with Hayao Miyazaki and Toshio Suzuki he was asked to sharpen a pencil. The pencil and its shavings were collected by the studio at the end of the process. As translated by Kotaku, Yonebayashi says, “It seemed like the test was more like to see whether or not we could correctly do commonplace things.”

But that’s not standard for everyone. It changes from applicant to applicant. One person, for example, was asked to cut a watermelon. I have to admit I’d probably fail that test because I would make a huge mess. I don’t have the first idea about the proper way to cut one. If you ever get to the last round of interviews with Ghibli (assuming they’re still around given their uncertain future), maybe you could take some pre-cut watermelon just in case. And don’t worry if they hand you a mango. We’ve got you covered there.

Cheeseburger-Mask

I’m not sure why you’d want to wear a giant cheeseburger head mask, but if you’re ever invited to some burger themed soireè or you want to do a video like the cartoons we watched as kids where people turned into food, now you can with this Cheeseburger Head Mask.

Yeah, I got nothing. But to each his own, right?

If you want one but you’re not sure about being able to see, it does have eye holes and fits most adult heads.
