Two Little Cats Bakery is selling these great white chocolate skulls on a limited edition basis for Halloween. The greatest thing about them is that they are so accurate.
The best thing about this remix is that so many horror movies use kids these days that it really does just seem to fit in with the rest of the trailers.

Want an easy treat to serve at your Halloween party that will still look great? Try skewering a bunch of Halloween-themed gummy candies and then wrapping them in Cellophane and a ribbon. -Voila, Halloween skewer.
Just roll out some sugar cookie dough, put a couple almonds on the ends to serve as nails, add in a few details and bake. When they're done, dust them with cocoa powder to accentuate the finger-like details.
While the original source doesn't mention it, these would be great if they were dipped in raspberry jam to the ends to make them look bloody.
Believe it or not, I actually ate these as a kid, and as much as a "Turtle Pie" sounds like a slang term for turtle poo, they actually were pretty tasty. How many of these terrible 80's and 90's cartoon-inspired foods did you guys eat?
Just look at that little Sofia from The Golden Girls. The author of Pop Muse's little baby is so darn cute, she'd look good as any TV character.
Love Harry Potter glasses and his famous scar, but don't want to wear hipster glasses without lenses and without painting a lightning bolt on your forehead? Then check out these great rings by Etsy seller thinkupjewel.
It's dangerous to grow up alone -take this great Zelda bedroom. This couple had a Mario nursery, but once their little one got a little too big, they upgraded to this design instead.
We've seen plenty of cool Dalek dresses before, but this one is not only one of the classiest, but also the perfect dress for the WWII Daleks from the "Victory of the Daleks" episode. I think Churchill would approve.
Well, at least his front legs are getting some exercise, that's gotta count for something right?
It might not be the prettiest Halloween cocktail, but Halloween isn't meant to be pretty anyway. So how do youmake one of these creepy concoctions? Just add black food coloring to vodka and then pour it over orange juice -for an even better orange color, fresh squeezed would be great0 Alternatively, blood orange juice would make a wonderful-looking drink.
These days, plenty of people take their dogs with them when they drive across the country, but there was a time when taking a car across the U.S. was a big deal for humans -let alone a dog. That's why Bud became such big news when he rode across the nation with Horatio Nelson Jackson and his driving partner Sewall K. Crocker in 1903. Their car didn't even have a windsheild, so Bud had to get specially made goggles to protect his eyes.
Happy National Cheeseburger Day everyone! In honor of the holiday celebrating one of the world’s most popular foods, here are a few of the strangest hamburgers ever grilled up and served on a bun.
1. Nutburger from Matt’s Place in Butte, Montana
I’m not a big fan of nuts, especially peanuts, so this burger sounds gross to me. But for those who love burgers slathered in peanut butter, but wish there was a chunkier version than even the chunkiest of peanut butters could offer, you might just love the Nutburger from Matt’s Place. It’s essentially a regular hamburger covered in a topping made from nothing but chopped peanuts mixed with mayo. Author George Motz who wrote Hamburger America says it’s "like eating sundae topping on a burger… It's great!"
2. Fatty Melt
What’s better than a cheeseburger? A burger sandwiched between two delicious, buttery grilled cheese sandwiches. This delightful innovation on a burger was originally concocted at the Mossy Creek Cafe in Fisherville, Virginia, but since they have since gone out of business, you’re only option to enjoy one is to make your own. If you can’t figure it without a recipe, Serious Eats has instructions to help you create it at home. And, if you really want to up your chloresterol levels, then don’t miss the instructions on making a double bacon fatty melt.
3. Bean Burger from Sills Snack Shack in San Antonio, Texas
No, not a patty made with beans, this is a Texas specialty that began at Sills Snack Shack all the way back in 1953. It features Cheez Wiz, onions, refried beans and crushed Fritos. While the original Snack Shack closed a while back, two nephews of its creator have reopened a food truck offering all of Sills’ famous specials, including the Bean Burger.
4. Cheeseburger in a Can
The best thing about this candy corn cocktail (in my opinion) is that it doesn't actually taste like candy corn. Instead it features pineapple vodka, orange sherbert, pineapple juice, milk and simple syrup. Yum!
Om nom nom say the adorable little sloth babies at the Costa Rician sloth orphanage as they enjoy some tasty veggies.
These nails would be really easy to do yourself -just splatter a little red polish on your nails and then have a boyfriend or someone without painted nails use polish remover to get the mess off of your fingers. They would be perfect for a Dexter viewing party or for all kinds of Halloween costumes.
Nothing like a little Doctor Who Jell-O to get you pumped up for the next episode. If you you want to make your own galaxy in a jar, Bakingdom has the recipe.
No matter where you go he'll always have his eyes on you. I don't care how much you like Nicholas Cage, it would still be horrendously creepy to sit on this thing.
It's football season and even those of us who aren't excited for the game can still enjoy these adorable dogs who are all geared up to watch their favorite teams.
Did you know today is National Play-Doh Day? While most of us without kids might not have any of the clay on hand to celebrate, we certainly can remember the great times we had with it as youngsters and honor the wonderful product by taking a look at its fascinating history.

Thank Kroger’s Dirty Wallpaper

Kutol Products started as a soap manufacturer in 1912. By 1927, the company was already facing forclosure, so Cleo McVicker hired his brother, Noah W. McVicker, to help manage the plant. The moved helped a lot as it allowed Cleo to serve as the company’s salesman –which is what he was good at, and Noah was great at developing new products.
In 1933, Cleo convinced Kroger to let Kutol manufacture a special wallpaper cleaner just for their company to use in their grocery stores on the condition that if he failed to provide them with fifteen thousand cases of cleaner on time –then Kutol would have to pay them $5000 in fines. It was a risky move –not only had the company never made a wallpaper cleaner before, but if the they failed to deliver on time, the fines would bankrupt them. Fortunately, Noah was one heck of an inventor and was able to create a non-toxic cleaner mostly made from flour, water, and boric acid and the company was able to ship it out on time.
One Brilliant Family
Unfortunately, as easily-cleaned vinyl wallpaper started to catch on and dirty coal power was phased out, the Kutol wallpaper cleaner became obsolete and the company once again started to face financial ruin. To make matters worse, Cleo died in a plane crash in 1949. In a last ditch attempt to save the company, his widow hired her son, Joseph –and soon enough, he did. In fact, while Kutol no longer sells their famous wallpaper cleaner, the soap company is still in business today.
While most people credit Joseph for saving the company, much of the credit belongs to his sister, a school teacher who, in 1955, asked him if the company could maybe come up with a safe substitute for modeling clay, which is too hard for many youngsters to manipulate. Joseph immediately thought of the company’s non-toxic wallpaper cleaner and sent her a sample. When she told him that her kids loved it, he reached out to all the schools in Cincinnati and offered them a free supply of the clay substitute. When kids all over the town were raving about the product, he presented the new toy, which he and Noah dubbed “Play-Doh,” at a national education convention where it sparked the interest of a number of major department store chains who all started carrying the product.
Play-Doh is Born

Only a year after the wallpaper cleaner became a hit with kids, the McVickers pulled Play-Doh from the Kutol line of products and started the Rainbow Crafts Company to make and sell the new toy. When they first started selling the product, it only came in an off-white color and was sold in one and a half pound blocks. Rainbow Crafts quickly improved their new product by offering it in seven-ounce cans that came in three packs featuring the primary colors. They soon started advertising on popular kid’s shows like Captain Kangaroo, Ding Dong School and Romper Room.
