When geeks turn gangsta and decide to do some tagging this is what happens. The great this is how subtle the vandalism is. You might not even notice it as not part of the ad. It accomplishes what graffiti is meant to accomplish…it gets a message across. And when a geek has a message to deliver he delivers it in the best way possible. This is probably one of my favorite tags ever…and one of the only ones which I might openly condone…that and some Banksy.
…I’ll bet the guy who did this would enjoy this and get a real kick out of this.
For most of you out there (the Americans) you’ll be celebrating our wonderful nation’s independence day. What better way to start it off than a great big stack of red & white buttermilk pancakes topped with blueberries. Sadly there is a lack of proper butter and syrup on this bad boy…but in my own kitchen this would be easily rectified.
Have a great time with your family and friends, barbecuing, swimming, boating, eating hot dogs and watching fireworks. What is your favorite thing about the 4th of july?
There is no question in my mind that this is the greatest and most creative homeless sign I’ve ever seen. I would give this “man” ever single last dollar that I have in my wallet. I wish I knew where he was located so that I could send him a few sawbucks…if only I could see him.
…it makes me almost as curious as this.
Ninjas are awesome, we know this…but if you’ve ever tried to evade one you know how difficult it can be. Here are a bunch of ways that one might be able to elude capture from said Ninjas…but I think they’d still find a way to Karate chop you.
Look at this awesome food invention from Eddie L. Burnal, of Ohio, in 1983. What better way to get your Mexican food kick than on a stick? I for one would be eccstatic to see one of these at my local fair. I love me some burritos and with this I no longer have to sit down to eat one. I can gobble and go…I would just need some salsa, guac and sour cream in a cup.
With increased popularity in Mexican food, burritos have kept an equal, if not a faster, pace. Burritos are made of a soft, highly pliable tortilla in a generally cylindrical shape which is wrapped around a burrito food filler. The filler usually includes seasoned meat or beans but, more recently, other food fillers have also been used, including such items as fruit. With the tortilla being soft and pliable, and the filler being squishy, if not juicy, of practical necessity) the burrito must be eaten on a plate. Consequently, burritos are usually sold by restaurants with dine-in facilities or purchased only by customers taking them home to eat.
The present invention provides a highly portable burrito product which can be carried about and eaten as easily as an ice cream bar or a coated hot dog impaled on a stick, commonly known as a corn dog, by way of example.
The portable Mexican-type food item includes a burrito-type product affixed to an elongate member or stick extending therefrom and intended to be grasped by the consumer during consumption of the product.
Pun intended…but seriously…come on Amazon! Who is buying and selling used condoms? What does that mean exactly? This makes me so curious as to what I’ll receive that I’ll almost tempted to order them. It also makes me wonder what other savory items you can purchase “used” from an Amazon store.
Takeru Kobayashi, the former owner of the of the coveted Mustard Belt from 2001-2206, held by the winner of the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest (which takes place every July 4th on Coney Island), has decided to end his career. Apparently this is due to an agreement, or lack-there-of, between Kobayashi and the Major League Eating (MLE). It seems they want exclusive rights on when and where their eaters compete and Takeru is not kosher with that.
I’ve watched him compete every year at Coney Island and I love rooting for him. Recently he’s been loosing to the current champ, and American, Joey Chestnut. Joey has won the last 3 years and holds the current record of 68 hot dogs and buns in 12 minutes. Another MLE member, Bob Shoudt, speculated that Kobayashi left the competition in fear of coming in third place for the first time, behind himself in first and Chestnut in second.
Either way, and whatever happens in the long run, he is a much respected competitive eater and it’s sad to see him leaving. Some of his current records are:
- Brats: 58 Johnsonville Brats / Brat Days / 10 Minutes/ Aug. 5, 2006
- Cow Brains: 57 (17.7 pounds) / 15 minutes
- Lobster Rolls: 41 Lobster Rolls in Boston challenge / 10 minutes/Sept. 23, 2006
- Rice Balls: 20 pounds rice balls / 30 minutes
Some pets are lazy and more often than not cats can be…but have you ever seen a cat that did not care as much as this guy? I think we all might be about to learn a little something from the seemingly idleness of this purring pretty. I look at it more as a mediative state, a serenity if you will…a calmness. He is so “at one” with his surroundings that he just really does not give a damn. He is okay with eggplants being balanced on his head, and I think that’s something we could all strive for.
