Taco shells made of breaded fried chicken. They're also calling it the Naked Crispy Chicken Taco, not because it is in any way unadorned, but presumably because it's just kind of an America Fuck Yeah sort of name. Like "Topless Robot."
Southern cooks, Mexican street vendors and the gross snack stands at county fairs are all going, "How come we never thought of that?"
I guess they thought stuffing it with nacho cheese and bacon would be overkill. But that has to be the next step, right?
McDonald's may have won the fast food news cycle yesterday with its announcement of all-day breakfast starting Oct. 6th (and I say screw that noise, because I want them to announce the rest of the menu becoming available in the morning). But unless they introduce the deep-fried Big Mac in a few hours, this day belongs to the Bell. And possibly the Grim Reaper, who is somewhere tenting his fingers Monty Burns-style and crowing "Ehhhhhxcellent."
Toby the cat was just determined to throw his mom off her game this time around. Did he succeed? Watch and find out.More >>
I'm not sure how many animatronics I would want in my own birthday cake as a matter of practicality, but a G1 Optimus who can become a robot and go back to a truck, and be (mostly) eaten by kids is impressive indeed.
However, next year I want to see cake creator Rusell Munro step up and make a Bayformers Bumblebee cake that sprays Mello Yello everywhere from its crotch.
But not for his kid. For me.
Taco Bell's latest creation is a small $1 burrito containing "beef" and red corn strips, plus three different possible levels of hot sauce - chipotle, habanero and ghost pepper.
The idea is to try all three and see what you can handle. A better idea, if you dare, is to somehow persuade your mother-in-law to do that on camera. Which I did.More >>
Given that Burger King is pretty consistently one of the most disappointing, bland and uninventive of the major fast food chains, I'm not hugely surprised they're the ones making the pitch to the larger competitor - which is equally uninventive and bland in many respects, but has better name recognition. The idea is that for "Peace Day" (9-21), the two companies make a pop-up store halfway between their corporate headquarters, and serve this monstrous mash-up burger free to people who use a particular hashtag. I'm not sure why Yum Brands don't already do something like this - who wouldn't go for a Long John Silver's/Taco Bell fish Quesarito, or Kentucky Fried Pizza? Not this guy!
I don't see Mickey D's going for it, but if they do, I want the burgers to be served by a terrifying hybrid of Ronald McDonald and the masked King - sort of a "Composite Superman" of cellulite. Even if the burger doesn't work, the horror movie rights will sell swiftly.More >>
Experienced connoisseurs of marijuana know that the smoke is best when filtered through water. But through an entire digestive system?
If you thought Marky Mark and Ted were wusses to refuse to smoke from the penis bong in Ted 2, we're talking amateur hour compared to this Human Centipede pipe made by a fellow named Dustin Yunker. I'm not sure whether your mouth goes on the ass or the other mouth - I just know that you will look terrible either way. So make sure the high is worth it.

Got questions? Martha Boyd has all sorts of answers. A desert-dweller, self-proclaimed crazy cat lady, former LAPD officer and widow to a Green Beret, she's seen and heard things crazier than you've imagined. And is ready for whatever odd questions you have, so bring them on!
Hi all. Another week, and most kids are back to school and parents are doing the happy dance with teachers doing the "when is the next vacation" song. We have great teachers out here in the Morongo Basin. I know several and they are dedicated and very hard working. With most schools the classes are over crowded and lack funds for a lot of supplies. But they keep going. I'm not sure I would survive in a room with 35 seventh graders.More >>
Note to self: harden arteries with chicken that's really bad for you.
Darrell Hammond made an odd sort of sense, as a guy whose whole deal is doing impressions.
Norm Macdonald is a weirder choice by far, as someone who's not only not southern, but Canadian. And whose impressions have generally been limited to David Letterman and Burt Reynolds. If he can get poutine on the menu, though, I am so down.More >>
