game of thrones drinking

When people talk about Game of Thrones, they often mention the high number of deaths and lots of nudity. But what about all the drinking? The Movie Maniacs took it upon themselves to create a seven minute super cut that strings together all the times characters on the HBO series toss back any form of booze – wine, mead, ale – it all counts. They also keep a tally of drinks consumed by house. It will either make you thirsty or make you feel like running to the bathroom.

See which house drinks the most in the video after the break (though the answer is obvious). And yes, there are spoilers so stay away if you’re not caught up!

The shambling undead wander about on The Walking Dead like a bunch of drunks, which gave Marca Branca an idea. He replaced the zombies in the opening with footage of actual drunk humans wandering around and it’s a little frightening how well it works. Remember this the next time you’re tempted to have one drink too many.

pumpkin truck

Fall is when we pumpkin all the things, including this poor truck which had a 1200-pound pumpkin dropped on its roof. It all happened at the Conneaut Lake Park Pumpkin Festival in Pennsylvania. Why? Because this is America and we love the smashy smashy.

mcdonalds and grant imahara

McDonald’s continually receives questions from consumers and media about what goes into its food. In an attempt to reassure everyone that they’re actually serving something edible, McDonald’s has kicked off a campaign featuring former MythBuster Grant Imahara called “Our food. Your questions.” Consumers are encouraged to submit questions about the food, and Imahara will find the answers. He’s spent years busting myths, so he’s a great fit for this campaign.

So far, McDonald’s has run TV spots and a webisode featuring Imahara at a Cargill plant where McDonald’s gets beef. There’s no pink slime, and you can see what the beef looks like in the factory.
