Ever wondered what a meat-machine gun would look like? (Yeah, that sounds rather dirty.) Anyway, the guys on The Science Channel’s “What Could Possibly Go Wrong” TV show felt inclined to make a meatball-firing Gatling gun out of PVC piping, and as you can see in the following video, it actually works!

While recording a promotional video for the upcoming cookbook “FUDS: A Complete Encyclofoodia from Tickling Shrimp to Not Dying in a Restaurant“, celebrity chef Mario Batali talked about the foreword he wrote as well as some of the recipes contained therein.

As you’ll see after the jump, he started out well when listing such appetizing delights as “Six Hot Dog Weiners” and “Secret Item With Surprise Bag”, but was struggling to maintain his composure by the time he got around to “Hot Melted Crayon Wax Served in Discarded Monopoly Thimbles”.

Ever felt the urge to go to your nearest convenience store and buy up all the non-alcoholic drinks so you could mix them all together and make one massively disgusting concoction? Yeah, I haven’t either. But YouTuber Hajime did just that spending 56,365 yen (US$475) in the process.

He named the resulting drink “infinity coffee,” and it includes a blend of everything from milk-based drinks, canned coffees and soda to fruit juices, yogurt drinks and energy drinks.

Then he drank it. It wasn’t pretty. Find out what happened in the video after the break…

Ok, I love tomatoes just as much as the next guy, but I don’t think I could stomach eating a tomato while I’m jogging around the block.

Kagome, a Japanese juice and ketchup company, designed this strange backpack/tomato dispenser for the Japan Marathon. The health benefits of tomatoes aside, the backpack is really just a PR stunt to help to promote tomatoes: since 2008, Dole Japan has sponsored the Japan Marathon, and they provide tons of bananas to help keep all those runners energized. It looks like Kagome is hoping to drive some attention away from bananas and over towards tomatoes.

Yeah, I think I’d rather snack on a banana while I’m running.

Cookie Monster is known primarily for stuffing his face full of cookies every chance he gets. This video shows the more thoughtful side of the furry blue monster as he shares his deep thoughts about food. It was inspired by the r/ShowerThoughts reddit and it will definitely make you laugh. Onion rings are vegetable donuts? This is brilliant!

Apparently, this townhome complex notified its residents that all grills must be removed immediately from patios and balconies or they would come and do the job for them. One resident decided that this was a battle worth fighting and decided to stage the above act of defiance, complete with what is sure to be the new banner of grill advocates everywhere.

wienermobile crash

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile ran afoul of slick roads on Sunday and smacked into a pole near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. No one was injured, but the wiener took some heavy damage with both a smashed windshield and a broken bun. Oh the humanity!

Although it will be out of commission while it is repaired, there is thankfully more than one Wienermobile. And that’s the lesson here I think. Always have a backup Wienermobile.

Every country has its own particular take on breakfast, and these American kids had the chance to try out a view different breakfast dishes from around the world. Their reactions, especially when they try some of the more unusual dishes (like preserved eggs!), are pretty entertaining.

If you and your S.O. are planning on pigging out on chocolate this Valentine’s Day, then a chocolate piggie from Tokyo-based candy manufacturers, tutto bene would be the perfect treat. Then again, it might send the wrooooooong message.

Though it’s a Japanese company, the candy makers’ name is derived from an Italian saying that means, “Everything is great.” In keeping with the whole Italian thing, the company makes a variety of chocolates that are pig-shaped, since Italy is (apparently) pretty well known for its pig-themed good luck charms, symbols and trinkets.

The company offers a few different piggie chocolates, but all of them are definitely tasty. The big guy pictured up top is the Gran Siesta, a 2.2-hunk of chocolate that’s made with 35 percent cocoa butter and it’s priced at $68, or 8,000 yen. There’s also the Juliette II, a smaller, tutu-wearing chocolate piggie that costs 600 yen, or roughly $5. Lastly, there’s the Figaro set, which features a mixture chocolate “cuts” that are arranged to look like a butcher’s pork diagram. That one runs for 1,800 yen or roughly $15.
