  • Not Gonna Happen Coin: For Those Difficult Easy Decisions

    Not Gonna Happen Coin: For Those Difficult Easy Decisions

    You know how sometimes you know the right answer to a question, but you have to ask somebody else in order to solidify it in your mind? Questions like, “should I do laundry today or keep watching House? Even though it’s technically possible for me to do both?” For these situations in life, there is now […]

  • Fried Chicken Home Type: KFC Japan Unveils “Repressed Scent” Chicken

    Fried Chicken Home Type: KFC Japan Unveils “Repressed Scent” Chicken

    Cultural differences between countries can be fascinating sometimes. For instance, where I sit in the southeastern United States, it’s unthinkable to me that anyone would want to invent a fried chicken that doesn’t smell like fried chicken. KFC Japan – for some reason – has done exactly that with a “repressed scent” fried chicken called Fried […]

    KFC Holiday Collection: Hall Deckin’ Good

    It would be difficult to have this site (or any other lifestyle/culture site) on your radar without realizing that the KFC brand now extends far beyond fried chicken and into realms of gifts, apparel, and other assorted novelties. So it should come as no surprise that there’s a KFC holiday collection now available for browsing […]

  • Cereal Motel: Breakfast Cereals for Technical Adults

    Cereal Motel: Breakfast Cereals for Technical Adults

    There’s a familiar bit of cognitive dissonance that doesn’t get discussed that often, but is nevertheless pretty commonplace.  It happens when you reach for your morning cereal fix and glance at the box, only to remember that the cereal you’re eating was intended in every respect for children and adolescents. Unless you want to start eating […]

  • Starburst All Pink Limited Edition Coming Soon

    Starburst All Pink Limited Edition Coming Soon

    Everyone seems to have a different personal ranking of Starburst flavors. In fact, no two people can even seem to agree on which is the worst flavor (my opinion, in case you’re interested: there is no worst flavor, they’re all delicious!). But apparently there’s enough consensus out there to justify the upcoming Starburst All Pink […]

  • Doritos Quesalupa Crunch: Another Taco Bell Amalgamation

    Doritos Quesalupa Crunch: Another Taco Bell Amalgamation

    Now that the Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chalupa‘s initial tour of duty is almost done, a new hero has emerged to do battle in Taco Bell Valhalla. It’s the Doritos Quesalupa Crunch, a superamalgamation of the restaurant’s Doritos Locos Taco and Quesalupa products, covered in nacho cheese sauce. What that amounts to is a Dorito’s […]

  • Etch Clock Engraves the Time Before Your Eyes

    Etch Clock Engraves the Time Before Your Eyes

    When you look at the Etch Clock, it’s hard not to think about that old saying about how any sufficiently advanced technology would seem like magic to the people of a previous era. It’s a clock that, through either science or sorcery, appears to “engrave” the time on its own surface, in real time. For […]

  • The Fucking Calendar 2017: Probably the Most Accurate 2017 Calendar

    The Fucking Calendar 2017: Probably the Most Accurate 2017 Calendar

    I must admit that when I first saw there was a new product called The Fucking Calendar, I assumed it was some kind of rhythm method aid or some other form of sexual statistics tracking. But in reality, it’s a calendar with the word “fucking” placed wherever it will fit—which, judging by the way 2016 […]

    SufganiKing: Burger King Israel Unveils Special Hanukkah Burger

    You may or may not be familiar with the sufganiyah, a jelly-filled doughnut traditionally eaten by the faithful to celebrate Hanukkah, but if you’re interested in fast food novelties, you now have a reason to research it if you aren’t: The SufganiKing, a “Ketchup Doughnut Whopper” set to hit Israeli Burger Kings on December 25th […]

  • Middle Finger Candle: For Rude Candle Lovers

    Middle Finger Candle: For Rude Candle Lovers

    Candles, as I understand them, are intended to create an inviting, comfortable, and soothing atmosphere in one’s home or place of business. But it seems that one might often have other priorities entirely when choosing a candle, and for those times the Middle Finger Candle would be more than appropriate. The first thing I notice when looking […]
