Nordstrom is Just Trolling Customers At This Point

In the last few months, Nordstrom has released an $85 rock in a leather holster and a $95 pair of mom jeans with clear plastic knees. Now they're really stepping up their game with a $425 pair of jeans that comes pre-dirtied with real mud.

The Barracuda Straight Legged Jeans are "workwear that's seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you're not afraid to get down and dirty." Because nothing says "I'm not afraid to get dirty" than paying for someone else dirty your pants for you.

If you really want to go all out, you can even buy the matching $425 jacket also covered in mud

This Pizza Dress is Anything But Cheesy

Believe it or not, costume designer Olivia Mears didn't make this incredible pizza dress as the most incredible prom dress in history. Instead, it was her incredibly impressive contribution to the Domino's Piece of the Pie contest. 

As you can see, she even went so far as to  create a special pizza box throne to rule over her minioins once she wins the contest -at least she's going to stay humble.

A Pizza Inside A Burger Inside A Pizza?

We've featured a lot of pizza/burger combinations in the past, including a burger made inside a pizza, but this pizza inside a burger inside a pizza might be the pizza/burger mashup to end all others. Like the burger inside the pizza, this outrageous creation is the creation of Hellthy Junk Food and just watching the video might just be enough to make you gain a few pounds.

A New Addition to the OED: Sonic Screwdriver

Doctor Who has been a staple of British culture for over 50 years, and now it has officially infiltrated the language -that's why the Oxford English Dictionary will be adding the word Sonic Screwdriver to the newest editions starting in June. In the announcement, the OED joked that it only made sense given that the dictionary itself is a lot like a certain blue box in that it is "blue, much bigger than it looks from the outside, and ‘the gateway to everything that ever was or ever can be’…showing you the whole of the past (and much of the present) of the English language."

Sonic screwdriver isn't the first Whovian term to be included. Already in the dictionary are TARDIS, Dalek, and Cyberman. You can read the announcement on the OED blog.

This Thrill Ride Will Change Speeds Based on How Scared You Are

If you go to a themepark with about 20 regular park attendees, it's entirely possible that every single one of them will have their own personal favorite ride. That's because what's mind-blowingly scary for one rider may be child's play for another. But innovative Dutch designer Daniel de Bruin has created a ride that will be just right for every rider.

Riders on the Neurotransmitter 3000 will be hooked up to a few sensors that measure a number of body factors, most notably muscle tension and heart rate. As the rider becomes more fearful and their heartrate speeds up, the ride will slow down and as they calm down, it will also speed up. For riders who feed on that fearful feeling, there is also an option to intentially increase the speed by contracting the arm muscle. Once the heartrate goes over 130 bpm, the ride will automatically stop.

Right now the ride is just an experimental prototype, but who knows, maybe you can one day head to the theme park and control your own ride speed and ensure you have a perfect experience every time. In the meanwhile, you can read more about it here.

Disney Movie Posters That Are Real Works of Art

Sure Disney movies are mostly made for child audiences, but they certainly have their adult fans as well and some of those fans are artists. Mondo art gallery decided to embrace these nerdy artists by putting together an art show of Disney movie posters created by 30 different artists. 

The films included in the show span over 80 years of Disney history. One of the artists, James Flames, even learned how to draw by tracing Uncle Scrooge’s beak and Mickey Mouse’s ears.

You can see more artworks from the show and read more about it on Mondo's website.

The 25 Best Food-Related Seinfeld Moments

Seinfeld is famous for being a show about nothing, but ultimately, it's just the opposite -a show about everything. Every stupid thing that could happen in a person's everyday life could happen on screen and that's precisely what made it so magical. And just like in life, food played an important part in some of the show's most memorable moments. 

From Junoir Mints to Kenny Rogers Roasters, all you have to do is say the name of certain foods and the word "Seinfeld" and fans will immediately know what scene you're talking about. If you happen to be one of those fans, you won't want to miss this ranked list of the 25 best food-related moments on the show. Even if you disagree with the rankings (I do), it's still pretty hard not to love all the items on the list itself. 

So check out the whole list here.

The McDonald's Sauce That Sold for $14,700

Who knew that holding on to your old unused McDonald's sauces was a worthwhile investment? One eBayer sure discovered the perfect time to sell his old Mulan Szechuan Teriyaki Dipping Sauce (available only back in 1998) and he ended up getting $14,700 as a result. Of course, this wasn't just luck -the sauce is more popular now than ever thanks to Rick and Morty's most recent episode that aired on April Fool's Day.

The team that makes the cartoon even made a petition on Change.org to bring back the sauce and it already has 20,000 signatures. It seems not everyone was willing to wait until McDonald's changed their mind and re-release the sauce though, which is why someone was willing to shell out some serious cash to get their hands on the lost sauce. Since that auction closed, another seller has put up a comparatively affordable listing for another package of the sauce that will only set you back $1,000.

Read more about the sale over at Eater or get your hands on one of the sauces at eBay.

These Animals Had the Best Easter

(Video Link)

There's something so charming about seeing kids discover their Easter baskets and hunt for Easter eggs, but you know what's better than that? Seeing lions, monkeys and meerkats doing the same though is even better. The Werribee Open Range Zoo in Melbourne, Australia gave their wards some surprise Easter treats to keep them entertained on Sunday. Just try not to smile while watching these cuties.

The Worst Commercialized Coachella Merchandise

The concept of "cultural appropriation" is a hot debate topic in modern times, but this "Friend Finder DIY Kit" by Free People takes the idea to a whole new level with "Kantha fabric, a pole and marker to decorate, and feathers, beads, cord and leather to make your own unique flag." And that's just one of the awful corporate items designed for Coachella attendees

On the upside, the list does include a lawyer who has a whole page dedicated to Coachella, which is something a lot of festival-goers will need -especially if they're the type to sport this sweet marijuana flower crown.

So see all the ridiculous items over at LAist

The 30 Pound Pizza Covered in Tacos and Guacamole

Can't decide between tacos or pizza? Well, if you're in New Jersey, you might want to head to Tony Baloney's in Hoboken where you can get your hands on this amazing taco pizza that weighs 30 pounds and costs $65. 

Unsurprisingly, it was inspired by stoners. As owner Mike Hauke explains, "These kids came in high as hell… stoned out of their minds," Hauke recalls. "They were like, ‘Yo, let me get some tacos.’" Rather than just throw some taco toppings on the pizza, he decided to make a carne asada pizza with tons of tacos and a massive pile of guacamole and sour cream in the middle. The pizza is only available on Taco Tuesday and pre-order is requested.

The Best Thing to Eat at Each MLB Stadium

There was a time where just about every baseball game offered the same food -popcorn, hot dogs, nachos, pretzels, etc., but nowadays many stadiums offer quality dining options including locations representing some of the best restaurants in the city. In fact, many stadiums are worth visiting if only for the food options and lucky for you, Thrillist has taken the time to compile a list of the best food options at every stadium, like the pictured MVT at the Texas Rangers' Global Life Park which consists of a two-foot long hot dog cooked in a tamale and covered in chili and cheese -it doesn't get much more Texas than that. At my local stadium, Padre's Petco Park, Thrillist recommends the ahi poke tacos, which seem appropriately San Diego as well.

So check out the tasty treats at all the parks over at Thrillist

The Best Car Chases of All Time

Hollywood loves car chases and they overdo them so much that 90% of the scenes are just fluff that's not even worth watching. But there is just something so satisfying about a realluy good car chase and that's what makes this list of the 12 best car chase scenes of all time so damn enjoyable.

(Video Link)

Whether you prefer high-polished, perfectly-coreographed chase scenes or hyper-realistic, crash-filled mayhem like the French Connection's legendary scene above, you're sure to see plenty of action-packed brilliance. You might even have to plan a movie marathon around the list.

So check out rankings for the best car chases of all time on Collider.

Woman Finds Her Cat That's Been Missing for Two Years on Facebook

Jimmy the cat was a well behaved kitty that stayed close to home when he went outside and he always got back inside before bed time, but he disappeared in September of 2014. While his family put fliers out and looked all over for the cat, they eventually gave up on finding him after a few months.

Two and a half years later, his owner, Sue Zelitsky, was browsing Facebook when she saw a post about a stray cat that was pulled off the streets, who happened to look a lot like Jimmy. Sue messaged back and forth with the shelter and evidence started piling up. Sue pulled together a bunch of things she thought Jimmy might recognize, but all she needed to do was open the cage door and Jimmy immediately pushed his head up against her. 


Sue and the rest of the family were happy to bring Jimmy home so many years later and the two kittens they adopted in the time he was gone immediately welcomed their new friend as well.

You can see more pictures of Jimmy and read a bit more about his story at the Dodo

Existential Craigslist Furniture Ads

Millions of ads go up on Craigslist every day, but most of them aren't worth reading, even if you are interested in what they are selling. One Craigslist user tried a different solution though -writing hilarious, existential ads that question the nature of life itself. While she may not have actually sold her furniture yet, at least she's entertaining the general public with listings like this:

The shower caddy stared at me, abject, its suction-cup eyes glowering with contempt, from the open cabinet in which I'd immediately placed it (and then, from which I'd never removed it) after buying it at Target months ago.

"I am worth something," its wire grill hissed, wordlessly. "I'm an object with value and purpose. With utility. And you treat me like THIS???"

This Cat Crashed An MLB Game

The Florida Marlins played their opening game yesterday against the Atlanta Braves. The game was pretty standard -up until the sixth inning, when delay was called on account of a cat appearing on the field. It then proceeded to avoid capture and it climbed an advertisement until it reached the Marlin's home run statue where it hid out for quite a while. The team disabled the statue (which normally goes off if a home run is scored) while the cat was hiding and eventually the kitty was removed safely from the field.

The Best 80s Cartoon Theme Songs of All Time

(Video Link)

If you were a kid in the 80s, you almost certainly watched cartoons and some of those cartoons have some seriously amazing theme songs. Collider ranked an impressive 45 cartoon shows from the 80s and there are some unforgetably great songs on the list -particularly the Duck Tales theme song, which I'm sure many would agree should have the #1 rather than the #2 spot. 

Many of the theme songs I expected seemed to be lacking (including Captain Planet and Tailspin), but I realized only afterwards that they were actually all released in the 90s.

So check out the full list over at Collider

When Harry Potter Fans Take Over a Roller Rink

You may not be able to fly in an actual quidditch game, but rolling on skates at full speed can still feel pretty magical and give you that wind-in-the-face feeling like flying. And that's why having a Harry Potter night at a roller rink makes complese and utter sense.

This particular event took place at LA's Moonlight Rollerway, which has theme nights pretty frequently.

Octopuses Are Big Weirdos

We all know octopuses and squid are weird. What you might not know is just how weird they are. In fact, these creatues actually use their RNA in a quite different way than practically any other animal on earth: 

Stanford University geneticist Jin Billy Li heard about Joshua Rosenthal’s work on RNA editing in squid, his jaw dropped. That’s because the work, published today in the journal Cell, revealed that many cephalopods present a monumental exception to how living things use the information in DNA to make proteins. In nearly every other animal, RNA—the middleman in that process—faithfully transmits the message in the genes. But octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish (but not their dumber relatives, the nautiluses) edit their RNA, changing the message that gets read out to make proteins.

But there is a dropback to the adaptation -it means that octopuses and squid slow down their genome evolution.

You can read more about what these findings mean over on Wired.

Taco Bell Plans to Introduce a Fried Egg Taco Shell

Taco Bell already pulled its much talked about Naked Chicken Chalupa, but it's about to be replaced by a delicious breakfast version -the Naked Breakfast Taco. This outrageous creation features a fried egg taco shell wrapped around bacon or sausage, nacho cheese, a three cheese blend and potatoes. 

If you just can't handle the nakedness, you can at least add a gordita shell to ensure it's fully dressed.

Unfortunately, the Naked Breakfast Taco is still only being tested, so you'll have to head to Flint, Michigan to try it out. In the meanwhile, you can read more about it on Foodbeast.

Comic Book Heroes As Dragons

Superheroes are pretty darn powerful, but even then, it's pretty hard to imagine anyone taking down a dragon in a one-on-one fight, even if that person was a mutant with superhuman powers. That's why this series by Lynton Levengood is so awesome -it just kind of makes sense in a weird way.

Of course, not all of them work as perfect matchups. Iron Man may be able to fly and shoot electricity out of his hands, but it's unlikely that any dragon would have the scientific skills to build such powers for themselves.

Check out the whole series over at the artist's DeviantArt page.

Starbucks Japan's New Frappuccino is Basically a Drinkable Cherry Pie

Japan gets all the best fast food twists and now even their Starbucks has heaven in a cup. In this case, it's a pastry shell lid that has to be broken open with a straw, vanilla base (let's face it -that's pretty much ice cream), cherry compote and it's all topped with whipped cream. If you are even in Japan to try it, you have to act fast -it's only going to be around for a month until May 16.

Real Haunted Houses in the US

Most people don't believe in haunted houses. Those that do are either terrified of such places or want to actively visit them. If you're in the later group, you don't want to miss this Travel and Leisure article featuring some of the creepiest haunted houses in America -like the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast pictured above.

You might be surprised by at least one property on the list -that's right, the White House itself is said to be haunted.

Cosplay From the 2017 WonderCon

We try to cover WonderCon and Comic Con as much as possible, but couldn't make it to the convention this year. While we unfortunately couldn't take pictures of cosplay for ourselves, there are still plenty of fun pictures available online.

Foods You Have to Try When You Visit Disney World

We've already featured some of the best beverages at Disneyland, but you don't just want to drink while you're at the parks, you're also going to need to eat. Fortunately, Travel and Leisure collected 60 of the most incredible foods at Disney World.

Ok, so technically that leaves you with the best food at Disney World and the best drinks at Disneyland, but until we have a list for each of the parks, this at least keeps it fair for people on both coasts. And there is a little crossover, like the turkey legs, Dole Whips and Mickey Pops. 

Even if you can't make it to the park though, you still might want to check out the list just to check out some of the drool-worthy photos of incredible foods. Heck, I kind of want to go to Orlando now just to eat!

So don't miss the full list over on Travel and Leisure
