You may think that an Irish taco would be doused with booze before having punches thrown at it in the rain, but as Conan O’Brien recently demonstrated, you would only be partially right.

After noticing that one of his employees is a Taco Bell superfan, Coco treated him to a behind the scenes look at the restaurant’s headquarters in California. In the process, they visited the test kitchen and were given the opportunity to make their own creations, which included the marriage of tacos and ice cream cones in “La Cone-A”, The Hands-Free Burrito (which didn’t arrive in time for this guy), and finally the Irish “O’Taco”, which consists of cabbage, mashed potatoes and corn beef topped with Guinness.

The entire visit is chronicled in the video after the break, and includes a taste test of the chain’s experimental “quesalupa”, an in-house museum tour, and employees’ awkward banter with a TV host.

dexter the rat

Rats have a bad reputation, but the fact is that they can be very cute. They’re also pickier about what they eat than you might expect. Take Dexter the rat for example.

He doesn’t want any of your dammed broccoli.

What’s the best way to take down the Borg? Well, you could always fall back on impeccable tactics and battlefield bravery, but I’m pretty sure that hurling pizzas at them is the best way to go.

The shirt’s available in a wide range of sizes too. So make it so and order one!

For one thing, he’s made from a taco, which are better than Pop-Tarts hands down. Second, he’s TACOCAT whether you spell his name backwards or forwards.

Indeed, Singer-songwriter Parry Gripp and animator Nathan Mazur created an animated music video about a taco cat that’s appropriately named “TACOCAT.” So, yeah.

You might be inclined to think that those are old-school 35mm film canisters pictured above, but they’re actually salt and pepper shakers.  The shakers (which are noted as being good for 24 “exposures”) look pretty realistic, but they’re both clearly labeled, so no one has to worry about accidentally loading a “shaker” into a film camera.

While Australia is famous for its surf, kangaroos and dangerous “nopes” (I’m looking at you, Sydney funnel-web spider), the land down under is also getting some attention thanks to Starbucks. The coffee chain recently debuted a strawberry cheesecake frappuccinos there, and it’s only available for a limited time.

YouTuber Grant Thompson is the self-proclaimed “King of Random” and in his latest video, he shows us how to melt down soda cans using a homemade mini metal foundry. The result is aluminum ingots that can be used to create all kinds of awesome stuff (he even casts a mini sword at the end).

After the break you’ll find videos for creating the ingots and the metal foundry itself. Needless to say, proceed with caution.

meat cone

So, why exactly did the Epic Meal Time guys use a whole mess of meat, mashed potatoes, gravy and bacon “sprinkles” to make a giant, four-foot-tall meat ice cream cone?

I have no clue. Gravy-induced insanity can be a real head-scratcher, right?
