Other than the dozens of toothpicks and string used to hold the thing into shape, this baconosaurus looks utterly delicious.
It might look like the real thing, but this Sorting Hat is really a cake filled with rice krispie treats and chocolate frosting deliciousness.
Sure, the end result is adorable, but it is still just completely unnatural.

Oh Mr. Kitty, you might be able to fool your keepers, but I know you're not really excited about New Years -just the feathers on this hat. Well, at least you look good in the meanwhile.
You already know what the most common resolutions are for humans, but when it comes to cats, they can be a lot more diverse. "I will not wolf down the kibble, then promptly throw it up," now that's something I can relate with.
Tard and Pokey had one heck of a New Year's Eve party this year. Don't they look thrilled?

Whether you are a blood elf, a troll or a tauren, you'll still look good in this great silver Horde necklace and it's a great way to let people IRL know where you stand in WOW.
A new study involved exposing parrots to different types of music to see what they enjoyed. They all bobbed their head in sync with folk and rock music and one seemed particularly fond of pop music, but they all had one thing in common as well -they all absolutely hated electronic music. Researchers noted that they looked particularly "distressed" when they played groups such as Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers.
While many humans can relate to this feeling, it's a little surprising considering how fond some parrots seem to be of sucking on the beads on their hoodies, like this guy. Doesn't he look like he's ready to rave?
These two cubs at the San Diego Safari Park sure look like they have a good time together. What I wouldn't give to join in on the fun before they get so big that they'd accidentally tear my face off during play time.

These two might be brothers from another mother, but they don't let that hold them back from having epic cuddle parties. Warning: this video is pretty obscene when it comes to cuteness!

I don't know what this seven day old hedgehog is dreaming about, but whatever it is, it certainly makes him squeal in the cutest possible way.
These days, chocolate-covered bacon has lost its novelty as bacon has already managed to infiltrate every other food by now, so why not chocolate? On the other hand, there are still plenty of bizarre things to cover in chocolate in this big wide world of ours…and here are a few of the strangest.
Most of us would never want to eat a raw onion in the first place, so why someone would think that dunking the onion in chocolate would change that fact is beyond me. The flavor seems to be exactly what you would expect too, one reviewer said that if you’re curious, just bite into a raw onion and then bite into a chocolate bar. Strangely, these seem to be a regular item in certain Philadelphia candy shops.

It sounds like a joke about pregnancy cravings, but chocolate-covered pickles are all too real. In fact, there are ample Instructables telling you how to make your own, including this one, which uses only two ingredients: pickles and Magic Shell.
If you’re trying to get your kids to enjoy healthy snacks, getting them to eat chocolate-covered carrots will probably work –but at that point, the veggies aren’t really healthy anymore, so you might as well just give them chocolate-dipped gummy vitamins at that point.
While chocolate-covered eggs sound pretty bad, so do mashed potatoes loaded with powdered sugar and shaped like eggs like the ones in this Paula Deen recipe. According to the reader reviews though, the biggest problem with this recipe is that it has four times as much potato as it should include –leaving the mixture as a soupy disaster that can’t even be shaped into eggs.
We already presented you with some fun trivia about the book-version of The Hobbit, but if you're interested in learning more about the behind the scenes actions involved with making the film version, io9 has you covered with all kinds of neat facts. For example:
Smaug Stole All Of New Zealand's Gold (Paint)
The greedy dragon's lust for gold could not be quenched even off the set. According to Scotsman The Hobbit crew used up all of the gold paint in New Zealand creating Smaug's lair. They used up so much paint that they actually had to pick more up from Germany.
That's a heck of a lot of gold paint!
Did you get enough holiday meals this year? I know I didn't since Zeon and I were too sick to go to our family's houses over the weekend so we just had turkey sage burgers with cranberry sauce. If you're like me and want more of that tasty holiday flavor, then perhaps you could try your hand at making some of the Christmas-themed hot dogs on this Serious Eats gallery. Above is a holiday special from Short Leash Hot Dogs in Arizona featuring fig jam, roasted pecans and goat cheese all wrapped in naan bread -yummy!
