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.

Blue milk is one thing, but blue chicken? Yuck. California-based photographer Lawrie Brown painted all sorts of common, everyday food items extremely bright colors in her photo series, “Colored Foods.” The resulting garishly colored foods don’t look very tasty, but they sure are eye-catching to say the least.

Take a look at some more colorful food after the break…

This towering sandwich has a food for every single letter of the alphabet stacked between two pieces of bread. It was made by Nick Chipman of Dude Foods who also built the McEverything sandwich with one of every McDonald’s sandwich.

See what it includes after the break…

evian spider-man

The release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is just a month away (it comes out on May 2nd), and Spider-Man is keeping busy. He’s not just saving the day, he’s appearing in all kinds of advertising. When he’s not helping the USPS with Priority Mail, he’s meeting a baby version of himself in an Evian water commercial.

He dances with baby Spidey, and the little guy mimics all of his moves. And you know what? It is so freaking weird. I don’t even know what to do with it.

See the commercial for yourself after the break.

pizza 1

Pepperoni pizzas can exist in the wild according to photographer Jonpaul Douglass. He’s been using $5 pizzas from Little Caesars in his photo series titled “Pizza In The Wild.”

Douglass was inspired by seeing pizza graffiti in his neighborhood. Once he found affordable pies of the right size, he started posing them on locations such as a pony, a basketball pole, or just on the ground. It’s a weird and fun series of photos, but mostly I want to rescue all the wasted pizza by putting it in my tummy.

See more of the silly photo series after the break.

Salad

So, you think you’re a real foodie? A true culinary connoisseur? Well, you ain’t a real food fan until you wear your meals on your head. I didn’t make up the rules. That’s just how it is. No excuses. But if you’re concerned about making a mess, then you can head on over to Etsy shop MaorZabarHats, which specializes in all sorts of fancy hats, including a number of food hats.

Owner Maor Zabar created a whole bunch of felted wool faux-meals that you can wear on your head, and options include a sushi platter, a salad, an egg breakfast and what I can only assume is a pie or some sort of terrible space-borne spore infection from Mars (could go either way on that one).

Check out some more food hats after the break…

Talk about technological advancements: just the other day I found out that there’s a new way to transport your beer growler on your bike, and today I find out that you can securely transport a banana on your bike too! Yes, there’s actually a leather holder that you attach to your bike to hold your banana (get your mind out of the gutter, thank you). The leather is designed so that it can snap onto just about anything: your bike seat, the handlebars and even your belt. Yep, you can holster your banana on your hip. Ok. I’m done now.

grilled cheese cake

Tired of birthday cakes made with sugar and chocolate? Change it up by ordering an epic grilled cheese cake from the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen in San Francisco.

This epic cake is comprised of 24 sandwiches stuffed with cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses. The frosting? Cheddar freaking cheese. Add-on options include bacon and jalapenos. You’ll have to fork over $100 for the cheesy dessert, but you can also take inspiration and make your own version at home.

A typical list of resolutions for the New Year includes getting more exercise, eating healthier, or quitting some vice. Blogger Beautiful Existence goes to extremes though, and in 2013 her goal was to eat all of her meals at Starbucks and its affiliates. All year long. And she blogged about it.

Starbucks does have breakfast and lunch sandwiches, fruits and veggies, parfait, and other options but man, that had to get boring. She admitted it was getting rough near the end and to bring her taste buds back to life, she had fried fish and chips for her first non-Starbucks meal in a year.

Besides being weird, the endeavor was expensive. She dropped around $500-$600 each month on her Starbucks food and drinks. Wow. Her next year-long challenge seems to be sponsored by REI and it involves learning 80 recreational sports. I think I’ll stick to my less exciting resolutions and goals.

It’s a turkey stuffed with an octopus. With crab legs sticking out from the sides. With three slices of bacon on top because bacon makes everything better. The “Cthurkey” was made by Rusty Eulberg of Lubbock, Texas a few years ago with the help of his wife, Jenny. According to an interview in Gothamist:

“We wanted to do something unique for Christmas dinner with friends of ours. Jenny is a big fan of Cthulhu so we went and bought some crab legs and some octopus and bacon and cooked them all separate and slapped them together on a plate, and that was it. The next year I made a Cthicken; the same thing using squid instead of octopus and a chicken.”

I don’t care how much delicious bacon they wrap this thing in, there is no way I’m eating that for dinner. No. Way.
