This could only happen in Florida.
A 23-year-old Florida man was arrested this week for an incident that occurred last October. It allegedly involved heaving a three-and-a-half foot long alligator through a Wendy’s drive thru window.
Apparently he picked the reptile up off the side of the road, drove to Wendy’s, ordered a large beverage, paid, and then pulled out the gator and flung it through the window. Why? Because Florida.
Actually, nobody seems to know the reason, although his parents are claiming it was all a dumb prank.
The alligator survived its fast food encounter and the suspect was charged with second degree petty theft (of the reptile), possession and injury of an alligator, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. After the arrest, Wendy’s released the following statement:
“This unfortunate incident occurred last year. The safety and security of our restaurant teams is very important to us, and we’re glad that no one was injured as a result of this situation.”

Gotta buckle those nuggets up for safety.
A dude going by the name “Zealot” on Twitter recently told the world that he would no longer be working at Burger King and that he had confiscated all of their chicken nuggets, justifying his actions with a simple “f*ck it”.
The social media response was swift, ranging from affirmations of hero status to requests for nugget sharing. However, when a news station contacted him about the nuggetnapping, he revealed that he had actually been asked to pick up extra chicken nuggets from another store and was transporting them when the idea struck.
At least now we know that customers in the area didn’t have to go nuggetless. Must have been tempting though—to just drive off with those nuggets and never look back. Head to Mexico and lay low, living off tens of dollars in nugget riches.
Yeah, wonderful and horrible at the same time.
During a sauna brainstorming session (where the heat obviously affected their brains), Elie Ayrouth and his bro Matt came up with the idea of transforming an In-N-Out burger into a pie. The mission required a set of 4x4s which were added to the pie crust and formed into cubes for use as a filling (with a batter of beaten eggs and half-and-half cream to work as a binding agent).

The concoction was baked for 30 minutes, topped with slices of cheese, fries, more cheese, and grilled onions, then baked for another 10 minutes to achieve the desired gooey/crispy texture. After a final topping of In-N-Out spread, it was sliced and consumed. Presumably, nobody died.
See it come together in the video below.

Domino’s is making pizza ordering even simpler by launching one-click ordering in the UK. Basically, it’s an official version of that Amazon Dash button pizza hack we featured back in September.
“The Easy Order” is available as both a physical button (paired with an app over Bluetooth) and a virtual button. Customers can simply save their data on the Domino’s website and click the button like its a Life Alert for your appetite.
The physical buttons will debut in the UK in December by way of a “socially led” competition, followed by a second release in February. Meanwhile, the digital Easy Order button sits inside the official Domino’s app and is available for use immediately.
There’s no word on if or when the button might be available in the states.
