This tongue-in-cheek diorama was made for the Washington Post 2014 Peeps Diorama contest by Kate Hohman. It was inspired by the kids’ book Everyone Poops and it’s just precious. Not only are the Peeps sitting on the toilet pooping Marshmallow Fluff, but they’ve got appropriate marshmallow pictures on their walls including the Stay Puft marshmallow man.

fastfoodconfessions copy

Not to gross you out or anything, but Buzzfeed recently created a video that featured 14 anonymous confessions (posted via Whisper) from fast food employees about how gnarly the industry is. Honestly, some of them are pretty unsettling, so just make sure you’re not munching on some McDonald’s fries while you’re watching this one.

kfc corsage

Prom season is here, and you don’t want to present your date with any old corsage. Spice up the traditional flower bracelet with some KFC. The fast food joint has partnered with Nanz & Kraft Florists to offer the limited edition drumstick corsage – only 100 are available.

The corsage kit doesn’t actually come with chicken, just a $5 KFC “gift check” so you choose whether to include Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken in the corsage with fresh baby’s breath. For $20, I’d say it’s not such a bad deal, and it’s certainly something your prom date will remember forever. And hey, it’d be great to have a snack on hand (literally) during the dance.

Watch KFC’s ad for the chicken corsage after the break.

pizza cake

Mmm, doesn’t this pizza look delicious? Well, joke’s on you because it’s actually not a pizza, it’s cake. As far as pranks go, it’s probably one of the best ones to be on the receiving end of.

YouTuber kawaiisweetworld created a video showing you how to re-create this dessert with red buttercream, shredded coconut, berry fruit roll-ups, and a few other ingredients. Just make the cake and then carefully decorate it to make the top look like pizza. It’s crafty, and it looks really tasty.

Learn how to replicate this tricksy dessert in the video after the break.

Much like Mario, I too enjoy balancing my dinner on my tummy like some lounge chair-loafing otter. But thanks to Fafa the groundhog, I now know that my favorite food-related pastime is generally frowned upon when eating out at a restaurant. Thank you, oh wise ground rodent, for showing me the error of my ways.

There’s a reason why it feels like your mouth is on fire when you eat something spicy, and Rose Eveleth has the explanation. It all has to do with how our brains perceive spice that cause it to think that your mouth really and truly is on fire. It’s science!

matt stonie burritos

The thought of eating a single Chipotle burrito makes my stomach ache, but that’s nothing to competitive eater Matt Stonie. He shoves four of the giant burritos – two steak and two chicken – and a Diet Coke down the hatch in slightly less than three minutes. If he would have removed all the foil ahead of time, it would have been even faster. My mind is blown, and I’m torn between feeling impressed and like I need to throw up. All that rice had to come back to haunt him later.

Watch the feat after the break.

Food always looks so good in commercials. The burgers are juicy. The fries are crispy. The buns are nice and fluffy. Yeah, in the real world that just isn’t how things look. This video takes clips from actual McDonald’s commercials and then pairs them up with matching real life shots of the same foods. I think I’ll just eat in tonight.

Who knew that all this time we’ve been making a mess of our burgers because we’ve been eating them wrong? The Japanese, that’s who. The Japanese television show Honma Dekka!? hired experts in fluid mechanics, engineering, and dentistry to determine the best way to hold a burger so that you don’t end up wearing most of it after one bite.

According to science, the way we usually hold a burger with our fingers all on top and just our thumbs on the bottom is what makes it squish and fall apart. Instead, we should be putting only three fingers on top with our pinkies and thumbs on the bottom. Now you have something new to try next time you’re at a burger joint.

watermelonbomb copy

Ever wonder what fiery watermelon fragmentation looks like at 2,500 frames per second? Well, thanks to The Slow-Mo guys, we now have the answer: It looks like all kinds of explosive awesome wrapped up into one fruity package.

Also, I love Dan’s overall casual demeanor while the bomb’s going off. Sure, he might have a few watermelon seeds lodged in his eyes at the end of the day, but it’s no big deal. Watermelon grenades are totally child’s play.
