The Electric Love Potato is the creation of Nathalie Lawhead and she describes it as “… a virtual potato desktop assistant that offers positive reinforcement, serenades you as you work, and creates random potato recipes.”

Alrighty, then.

Unlike other assistants, this one may prove distracting and actually reduce your productivity. From The FAQ:

Q: My potato is beginning to “creep me out”. What can I do? A: If your potato is causing you discomfort simply shake the window. You can do this by mousing over the potato, and grab the draggable bar (part of the window that appears). This will jolt the potato causing it to re-think what it is doing.

You can download it for free from Game Jolt and experience the spud goodness yourself.

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?

Look, maybe I’m a weirdo, but I like a sweet pizza. It looks like the folks at Aoki’s Pizza, a Japanese pizza chain that’s based in the country’s Tokai region, are pretty fond of sweet pizzas too. They recently debuted a new pizza that is actually covered with broken-up chocolate bars and pineapple.

These stawberry and lemon-flavored hot dogs can be purchased at what appears to be gas station in central Honshu in Japan. You’ve got to wonder if they actually taste any good. As a general policy, buying hot dogs in a gas station does not end well so we’re not so sure about these funky flavors.

You can tell just how much your sense of smell affects a food’s flavor every time you’ve got a stuffy nose. With that in mind, Molecule-R has created the Aromaspoon and Aromafork to add scents to your food to hide or change they way they taste.

It works by adding a liquid aroma to a special pill-sized diffuser in the silverware. When you bring it to your mouth, the smell adds to what you’re eating. You could make your least favorite veggie taste like bubble gum or try combining complimentary foods to create something new. Each kit comes with 21 different aromas, so you’re sure to come up with some interesting combinations.

weird commercial copy

You know when you’re on your way to work and you’re so hungry, and I mean like I’m-hallucinating-and-totally-starving-hungry, and the whole world around you starts to morph into tasty snacks? In this Pepsi commercial, a commuter gets a hankering for a hot dog, and then he “imagines” that the subway train is actually a giant chain of hot dogs. Nothing weird about that at all.

There are all kinds of burgers and just as many buns to hold them, but this blue burger bun designed to look like Earth has got to be the weirdest of the lot. It’s even got green accents to look like the continents. You can find this very weird chicken burger at Japanese science museum Orbi Yokama. Try it if you dare.

Now I love cappuccinos just as much as the next caffeine-addicted Internet denizen, but I’m not sold on the idea of cappuccino-flavored potato chips. But some of the other flavors in this year’s Do Us A Flavor competition from Frito-Lay are a bit out there too: cheddar bacon mac & cheese, mango salsa and, of course, wasabi ginger. The four flavors will hit supermarket shelves later this month, and the public can vote on their favorite flavor through Oct. 18. The inventor of the most popular flavor will win a $1 million reward.

Which version are you most excited to try?

A Big Flat Sandwich, for the uninitiated, is basically a whole loaf of bread that’s been hollowed out and filled with a vast assortment of meats, cheeses and veggies. Then the sandwich is compressed for a few hours, and voilà, you’ve got a tasty, panini-like flat sangie that’s packed with more greasy cholesterol than your heart can handle.

This might be rather hard to believe, but the creepy yet beautiful bejeweled skulls pictured above are actually cakes. British baker Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer’s Kitchen created these cake skulls recently—and they’re completely edible, right down to the teeth and the pillows they’re resting on. The skulls are made from chocolate, buttercream, hard candy, marzipan and sugar balls. Their gilded appearance was inspired by historically authentic bejeweled skeletons that Dr. Paul Koudounaris photographed for his books on macabre art.
