corner protectors

If you want to make your table corners kid friendly and simultaneously adorable, then check out these animal-shaped corner protectors. Applied with simple double sided tape, they will prevent the bruises and inevitable fits of swearing that come with banging any part of your body on a corner. They will also make it look like the surface is being consumed by a cat, bear and frog who bit off way more than they could chew.

General Mills is officially jumping aboard the natural ingredients train. Much like Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and Panera have planned with their offerings, General Mills has announced that they will remove artificial colors and flavors from their entire line of cereal products.

Artificial colors like Red 40, Yellow 6 and Blue 1 will be phased out and replaced with colors made using spices and fruit and vegetable concentrates. The process will begin with Cocoa Puffs, Reese’s Puffs and Trix making the switch by the end of the year. The process will be completed in 2017.

McDonald’s is struggling financially, but their packaging design game is strong. Back in May they debuted a takeout bag that turns into a serving tray, and now they’ve developed a takeout container that’s designed specifically for cyclists.

Created by ad agency Tribal Buenos Aires in Argentina, the “McBike” container can be transported on the handlebars of a bike, and it can securely hold a burger, drink and fries.

The McBike debuted in Copenhagen, Denmark, and then it popped up in Medellin, Colombia. The next step, apparently, is to introduce the container to cities that are known for being bike friendly (like Amsterdam and Tokyo). While I haven’t actually seen a cyclist pop into a McDonalds drive-thru before, it seems as though McDonald’s is starting to encourage the idea. Maybe we’ll see it in Portland sometime soon.

Oh, Rocket, what happened to you?

This poor little raccoon is out for trouble, as you’ll see in the video after the break. First, he broke into a liquor warehouse, then he knocked over a few bottles and started imbibing. Heavily. Let’s hope he was able to find a nice tree to curl up inside and sleep it off.

So, if you end up loving them, know that they will disappear with the fall and wind up as one of those summer flings that ended too soon.
