Chicken and Sons restaurant in Sydney, Australia has devised a new concept item that combines a cup holder, booze and beef into a single burger.
The $22 ($16 US) “Bourbon Burgel” consists of an Angus beef patty, American cheese, pickles, “special sauce,” bourbon-glazed bacon, and jalapeno-bourbon barbecue sauce on a sesame bagel bun. In the middle of the burger is a cutout housing a shot of Bulleit bourbon with even more bacon.
Sounds great, but the best part is going to be nursing that beefy hangover.

This Hollowgast from Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children has jumped right out of your nightmares. You know, the one where you’re a child eating a watermelon that turns into a horrifying monster. Don’t worry, I have it too. We all do I assume.
This Hollowgast head, carved by Clive at Sparksfly Design, is pretty much a dead ringer for the Hollowgasts in Tim Burton’s upcoming film adaptation.
On a side note, I really wish we had giant watermelons so he could carve Audrey Two from Little Shop Of Horrors. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Molded mugs have been getting crazier and crazier, but the upcoming 20oz Goku mug really takes the cake. I mean—just look at it.
I hope you like a little blood in your coffee because that hair looks like it will shred your face to bejeezus and back. This might be a safer option.

Just in time for the upcoming release of Jason Bourne, GQ’s Jim Moore met up with Matt Damon to go over the finer points of staging a movie fight – in this case, a movie fight in a bar.
Of course, for film, the moves are all staged and the process is described as more like a dance between partners than an actual fight. As you’ll see, breakaway bottles stand in for the real thing, and perspective is used to hide space between a fist and a face. In fact, everything is fake, including the bar and the martini used for the final toast. Everything is a lie people. Check out the video below. [click to continue…]
YouTuber “HellthyJunkFood” has recreated a Canadian favorite in the form of Bacon Wrapped Deep Fried Poutine.
For the uninitiated, Poutine consists of French fries and cheese curds topped with a light brown gravy. As the name confirms, this incarnation includes a date with bacon and the fryer and reportedly packs a whopping 1,300 calories.
Check out the mouthwatering video below to see it come together. [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…]
During Wednesday’s taping of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon was challenged to perform a cannonball live in Rockefeller Center. After some rehearsed trepidation, he “answered the call” and dunked himself in a pool surrounded by throngs of people.
However, what makes this stunt truly special is that the pool was apparently filled with the sugary nostalgia known as Hi-C Ecto Cooler, which recently made a comeback to coincide with the release of the new Ghostbusters film.
No word on whether Jimmy was rushed to an emergency shower to counteract any ill effects from his exposure to massive doses of nuclear green coloring. Check out the stunt in the video below. [click to continue…]
In the following video Canadian YouTuber AvE demonstrates that Wonder Bread can be transformed into carbon foam – a substance that is said to be similar to the material used to cover the space shuttle.
The process is reportedly the same as making charcoal, and involves putting the bread in a very hot, oxygen-free container until it is blackened. The bread’s tiny holes are retained in the final product, resulting in a type of foam with “incredible insulating properties”.
AvE states that the substance has an exceptionally high electric resistance and can withstand temps of up to 6,600 degrees Celsius (or about 11,900 degrees Fahrenheit) without melting or burning. Instead, it sublimates, or instantly turns into gas.
Scientists working on a recent study for ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces discovered that carbon foam made from bread “is mechanically stiff, can shield against electromagnetic interference and is much less flammable than current carbon foams.”
In other words, this is a cheap and effective way to make a supremely useful material. See how it’s done in the video below. [click to continue…]
Not surprisingly, Germany is on the cutting edge of sausage technology.
Forschungszentrum Informatik (FZI) is applying robotics to bratwurst in the form of “BratWurst Bot” – a one-armed automated machine that can take orders and prepare and serve sausages without any human intervention.
The device was constructed entirely with off-the-shelf parts, including a Universal Robots UR-10 arm, Schunk PG-70 standard parallel gripper, two RGB cameras and a conventional pair of tongs.
Customers can place custom orders using a tablet that will sync with a tablet carried by the robot. They’re served based on their order in the queue.
Even if you don’t understand all the technical details, you can still be wowed by the demo video below, which is intended to show how the device could benefit the service industry down the road. Sausages are only the beginning people. [click to continue…]
We just posted a pic of a restaurant in Poland catching Pokémon then serving them up for dinner. Meanwhile, this family has been serving up Oreo Cheesecake Poké Balls (with an edible sugar sheet topping) to hungry Trainers heading to the Poké Stop near their house. Not surprisingly, they were gone before noon.
