Waynesboro, Georgia is heading for a whole new identity thanks to a 7 foot tall KFC bucket that mysteriously showed up in a woman’s front yard last Thursday. The phantom bucket subsequently appeared on Facebook and the local news, turning it into a popular landmark – the woman’s landlord even claims that he will have it mounted on a pole for the world to see. Needless to say, the misleading ad will likely result in a lot of pissed off, chicken-starved passers by who will have to trek more than five additional miles to get the Colonel’s nearest location.

If there’s a weird nonsensical product that comes in colorful packaging and has a face, chances are it originated in Japan. Case in point: this bizarre candy that allows you to eat a candy sewage explosion that looks like the result of Stay Puft Marshmallow Man’s Mexican food bender.

You snap together a plastic toilet, give it a happy cartoon face with the enclosed sticker (because nothing says happiness like receiving huge dumps daily), then add water to the magic sh*t-powder, and presto! A simulated plumbing accident that you can eat.

MMMMMMMMMMMM!! Hit the jump for a demo vid.

There’s a new ipecac soda available from Lester’s Fixins which is flavored like, of all things, ranch dressing. Somewhere, someone will pour this over a salad, but will it make the flavor any less disgusting? Probably not.

Is Taco Bell a creepy stalker? It seems so as a series of photos showing bizarre, handwritten love letters from Taco Bell to a bunch of actresses and models, including Sports Illustrated’s Chrissy Teigen, Miss California 2012 Leah Cecil, Awkward’s Jessica Lu, and others have hit the web recently. Accompanying the notes were gift cards, branded rings and even invitations to Taco Bell’s test kitchen.

Here’s a sample written to a model named Acacia Brinley:

“Following you on Twitter was the best decision we ever made. You’re cool, a great friend and you like Taco Bell! We have to get you into the test kitchen this summer. We only let really cool people see our test kitchen, so you should be psyched. Keep Tweeting & more awesome things like this custom Taco Bell ring will come your way. Hope you like it.
Love,
Taco Bell”

Although you’d think these things would be met with indifference or a restraining order, Brinley was overjoyed to have a fast food chain as an admirer and tweeted:

“OMG @TacoBell IM CRYING THANK YOU OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS HOLY COW JUICE IM SO HAPPY,”

What the hell is Pet Bird-flavored ice cream you ask? Well, apparently it’s exactly what it sounds like, and originated in Torimi Cafe, a spot in Japan where people like to eat surrounded by birds.

The cafe’s new flavors include Cockatiel, Java Sparrow and Parakeet, all which debuted last week at a small bird expo in Osaka. According to the business, the ice cream is made with all-natural ingredients and “once in your mouth, the aroma of a parakeet would spread intensely.”

…According to Torimi Cafe, the Java Sparrow flavor evokes “the feeling of pressing the breast of a java sparrow into your mouth,” while the Cockatiel ice cream emulates that moment “when you’re sleeping with your mouth open and your cockatiel runs over your face and gets its leg in your mouth.” Happens all the time.

I’m going to guess that this is an acquired taste.

These pears, which are shaped like babies, were reportedly spotted at a Sam’s Club in Beijing. When a journalist from MIC went to investigate, the store’s staff apparently said they were sold out and didn’t know when they’d be getting more.

Strange as they are, there appears to be a point to molded baby pears:

Experts say the pears look like mythical ginseng fruits of Chinese folklore. In the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West, the fruit is shaped like a young human head, and it takes ten thousand years to ripen. The individual who takes a bite can then live for another 47,000 years.

So, is Sam’s Club the key to eternal life? I always suspected it was Costco.

For people who take beer way, way too seriously, there’s Beertone, a detailed reference guide that catalogs 202 Swiss beers by their color:

The bright beers will start the guide ending with the dark ones. Each Beer will be presented with picture, description and of course its color Information, RGB, CMYK, Web, SRM( that’s the beer color scale). We are shooting each beer, bottle and the beer itself in a glass.

I’d imagine this would be useful if you want your walls to look like beer, or if you want to compare it to your own urine to see if your favorite ale retained its color on its trip through your body. Whatever the case, the powers that be plan on expanding future versions to include beers from around the world. Pre-orders are now being accepted here.
