Jenn Aguilar is definitely a shoe-in for the “Punniest” Mom of the Year award. Since last fall, Aguilar has been drawing up these cute and extremely pun-packed lunchbag cartoons for her children: Konner, 12, and Kale, 14. She told BuzzFeed that, at first, her kids were a little embarrassed by the “punny” bags. But, she said, “I stopped doing them for a little bit and they were like, ‘Where are the bags?’”
It takes Aguilar roughly 20 to 25 minutes to draw up the bags every night. Though she comes up with a lot of the puns on her own, she sometimes uses Google for inspiration. Before she doodled puns, she used to put little notes in her boys’ lunches–but most of the time they either lost the notes or didn’t read them. So, she set about to create something that was a little more “impactful.”
“I definitely think they enjoy the bags, even if they don’t want to admit it,” she said. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]
Cake artist Katherine Dey decided to use an incredibly unappetizing subject for her latest creation, fashioning a massive Madagascar Hissing Cockroach out of chocolate cake stuffed with Boston cream filling.
Even though the result was no doubt delicious, we’d imagine people still approached this thing with a fair amount of revulsion.

Destin of “SmarterEveryDay” created a potato gun with a clear plastic barrel in order to show the world the powerful forces that send spuds flying through the air.
Best of all, he filmed it at 20,000 fps, which provides a fascinating, and slightly terrifying, look at the combustion process. The experiment also determined that the location where the fuel and air ignite inside the chamber can have a significant impact on the gun’s launching power.

Getting a little bored with your basic cocktail? Well, you should consider adding a few bubbles into the mix to liven things up. That’s right—you can actually turn your preferred adult beverage into bubbles with this kit.
It comes in a pack of 6 bottles, each containing 25ml of bubble solution with space remaining in the bottle to add ANY beverage you fancy – lemonade, cola, cold-press coffee, gin, tequila – anything (well, not thick liquids like milk). Screw the lid back on, give the bottle a gentle rock and just like that, your favourite drink has been transformed into bubbly deliciousness, ready to be blown all over the place with the included wands.
Think of the fun you could have at parties! It’s like apple bobbing for drunken adults. Just make sure to leave your dignity at home.

Oh, and while you’re at it you might want to add these.
Mathematician Clifford Stoll has turned his attention to the most popular method of pizza consumption and concluded that it is “remarkable”.
Stoll reports that pizza prefers a Gaussian curvature despite being partially flat and having no natural curvatures. Humans correct this by folding the slice in half lengthwise using mathematician Carl Gauss’s “theorem egregium” or “remarkable theorem.” This improves the slice’s rigidity and makes it easier to eat.
So if you don’t fold your pizza when eating, you’re doing it wrong. Another of life’s great debates has been solved by math.
At any rate, if you’re good with numbers or you just want to watch a guy get super excited about pizza math, you can check out the video below. [click to continue…]

Using “ebru techniques”, artist Garip Ay recreated Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpiece “Starry Night”, as well as a Van Gogh self-portrait, in a bowl of water.
Ebru is described as an ancient decorative paper art that involves manipulating chemical-enhanced water and an oiled surface into images that are then transferred to paper.
Ay is classically trained and his work has been exhibited around the world – which explains why he makes the process look so effortless.
