A Good Designer Can Make A Dress Out Of Anything

For those of you who simply throw away your candy wrappers, then for shame. You’re simply not being creative enough. One recycling happy designer found inspiration in an unlikely source–the wrappers from peanut M&Ms. Couture designer Christina Liedtk was commissioned by TerraCycle to create a gown for their pop-up shop in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, and the end result was a dress that could actually be worn. She delicately sewed together 600 yellow wrappers to create this stunning gown, transforming trash into blooming flowers. Now, Christina is making the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York a little bit prettier too, since the TerraCycle pop-up shop displaying the dress is located there until May 21. So, if you’re in the city, take an excursion to Port Authority for a bit of recycled green inspiration. [PSFK]

Chocolate Penis Inserts Itself Into Murder Trial

While nothing about a murder case is funny, the idea of the Supreme Court discussing a chocolate penis and a pair of tits does kind of make me chuckle. So why would they be discussing such things? The court just heard an appeal for Georgia death row inmate Marcus Wellons, who was sentenced in 1993 for raping and killing a 15-year-old. Horrible. But, apparently, some strange things were going on behind the scenes of the trial—the judge not only took the jurors out to a restaurant, but after Wellons was convicted, the jurors sent the judge, a woman, the aforementioned choco-c**k. They sent the choco-boobs to the chief bailiff on the case. Wellons’ lawyers said that someone needs to investigate what went on outside of the court room to make these gifts even semi-appropriate. Since Wellons is black, the lawyers think the gifts could be “evidence of the jury’s racial bias.” The Supreme Court agreed and sent the case back to the lower courts for reopening. Who knew chocolate genitalia could have such an impact? Something to think about at your next bachelorette party. [Newser, LA Times] Keep reading »

Ketchup Chocolate May Be The Next Big Thing In Fast Food

OK, so it’s not exactly ketchup-flavored chocolate, but a chef has discovered a way to make ketchup that easily coats foods in a similar way as chocolate. For some reason, Dave Arnold had the goal of developing a ketchup-substance that had the consistency, texture, and spreadability of chocolate and he’s found success. He says the ketchup chocolate is hard, shiny, and melts in your mouth like chocolate. I’m not a fan of ketchup, but this sounds an awful lot like a meatloaf spread, no? Still, I’d be willing to try the chicken morsels above, but the egg yolk bon-bons, not so much. This could be the next revolution in fast food. See more photos after the jump.

Can My Vanilla Make Out With Your Chocolate?

Our buddy Copyranter points us to this freakishly erotic ad for Italy’s Zaini milk chocolate. Why, it’s almost … pornographic. If you’re into food porn, that is. Vanilla is really tonguing the hell out of chocolate, no? I don’t know if this makes me want to eat a chocolate bar. Oddly, I think it does. Are they going to release the hardcore version soon? One can hope. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
