The sad thing is I actually know people who would eat this: a vendor at the Wisconsin State Fair is serving up a cheeseburger between two halves of a Krispy Kreme donut as a bun. You can get it with chocolate-covered bacon, too! But your coronary artery wants to know: How many calories? Keep reading »
We’ve been abuzz this week with news of flight attendant Steve Slater’s dramatic exit from a Jet Blue plane and (presumably) his job. Then we heard about the (confirmed as totally fake) woman who quit her job via a carefully worded series of dry erase board messages. It reminded us of one of our all-time favorite quitters — W. Neil Berrett — who quit via a GIANT SHEET CAKE (tasty and to-the-point!).
While we’ve certainly fantasized about leaving past jobs in a cloud of smoke, booze and tears, we’ve never actually done anything like the folks above. But we’re betting that some of you have a similar flair for the dramatic. So what’s the best or worst way you’ve ever quit a job? Keep reading »
If you need anymore proof that there is something other than chicken in McDonald’s McNuggets, look no further than Melodi Dushane.

Big news in the snack world: Pop Tarts has unveiled its new flagship store in New York City’s Times Square — and a new taste sensation: Pop Tarts sushi. You’re on ideas fire, Pop Tarts!
What is Pop Tarts sushi? It’s minced bits of Pop Tarts wrapped in Fruit-by-the-Foot. Basically, it’s our wet dream of a snack. The snack scientists over at Pop Tarts have come up with around 30 new tarty treats, all of which combine the delicious high-fructose corn syrup-infused breakfast treat with surprising ingredients (Pop-Tarts Ants on a Log, anyone?).
The store will also feature Pop-Tarts themed light shows and Pop-Tarts video games, all of which we’re sure will be highly instructional. [NY Times] Keep reading »
In today’s economy, you hear more about people looking for jobs than leaving them. But that doesn’t mean the world still isn’t full of disgruntled workers who decide it’s better to drop their job then deal with the daily torment. While most people’s resignations involve a two weeks notice and a quiet exit, there are a few who decide to turn their leaving into a memorable event. We are talking Jerry Maguire — walking out with a fish and Renee Zellweger — kind of productions here. Two happened just this week. Keep reading »
