Chef Josh Elkin helpfully provides a step-by-step instructional video to show you how to make this Oreo that you'll definitely take instead of the gun. First, he separated the Oreo cookies from the creme. Then he powdered the chocolate cookies and added fluor, shortnening, and an egg to make a dough. After shaping the dough around cannoli tubes, he deep fried it to create the shells.
With sugar, vanilla extract, and water, Elkin formed a frosting, which he piped into the cannoli shells. Unless I missed a step, he didn't use the creme filling, so you have something extra to eat after you fix the cannolis.
A McDonald's restaurant and a liquor store are not natural enemies. In the wild, they usually ignore each other. But a McDonald's and a Sav-Mor in Somerville, Massachusetts are now locked in a joking war against each other, mocking each other with their signs.
It all started when the McDonald's offered a special deal on Egg McMuffins. The Sav-Mor decided to move into McDonald's territory:
Spoonflower is a company that produces custom fabrics. If you've got a design, they can produce bolts of it. Carmen Baugh, 66, of Durham, North Carolina made use of that service to decorate for her obsession: her grandchildren. Her philosophy is that a grandma can't have too many photos of her grandkids.
So with fabric covered with pictures of her two grandkids, she made curtains, pillows, clothes, and even wallpaper. Baugh says, "When I stand against the wall, my husband says that I just blend in and disappear. All you can see is my head."
One is your wife. The other is her evil twin sister, now escaped from an asylum for the criminally insane. They look alike, but only one has learned how to tolerate you for long periods of time. Which one is the right one!?
Companies talk about tasting rainbows and seeing colors the way they're supposed to be seen, but if you want to take the ultimate trip you've gotta eat some magic. Take a bite out of a magical beast and you'll be seeing all kinds of crazy stuff, grinning like a fool while the magic messes with your mind. It's some powerful stuff and should be used in moderation, but if your body can bear it the magic will make all other meals pale in comparison. And remember- you can't spell meat, madman or magic without MMMM!

The 2016 U.S. Presidential Election continues to be described as shocking and controversial, but it takes more than a racist with a spray tan and a bad hairpiece to create controversy.
You need a pro-Stalin, pro-Communist candidate like Earl Browder, who received funding directly from Moscow to run for office in 1936 and 1940 and posed for his publicity shots while holding a giant hammer and sickle.
Earl was lucky he ran for office before the Cold War or he would have been strung up for his views, but his Commie lovin' ways were soon overshadowed by the racist rantings of George Wallace.
Wallace ran on an openly racist platform back in 1968 and 1972, vocally opposed integration and had supporters who surrounded black protesters at his rallies while chanting “kill 'em, kill 'em, kill 'em”.
Controversy doesn't always center around bad or antisocial views, sometimes a candidate is simply ahead of their time and thereby making political waves with their very presence.
Victoria Woodhull ran for president in 1872 as head of the Equal Rights Party- she was for free love, giving women the vote, eugenics and the legalization of prostitution.
Oh, and she ran with Frederick Douglass less than a decade after the abolition of slavery, so it's no wonder her controversial presence in the election resulted in death threats and less than 0.1% of the popular vote.
And speaking of stupidity- the Nazis, those jerks who acted like they were changing the world for the better when all they were really doing is killing and destroying for the sake of Der Fuhrer's stupid cause.
However, this was easier said than done during wartime, which British historian Ronald Belfour discovered when he was killed by a shell burst while moving parts of a medieval altarpiece behind enemy lines.
Huchthausen was similarly killed in action while trying to protect a cache of priceless art, and even though he was gunned down before the art could be moved soldiers were later able to locate and save it all thanks to his hard work.
The ordinary LEGO block is the most dangerous weapon on Earth--especially against parents. Even Superman can succumb to its brutality. Here, Batman uses his superior intellect to devise the ultimate means of taking down his rival: the kryptonite LEGO block.
For this video, Blank on Blank presents a 1963 interview with Rod Serling in Australia. In in, the creator of The Twilight Zone describes serving as a paratrooper during World War II, riding in the backseat of a Japanese taxi, and growing up with a reputation of dishonesty. Serling says, "Some liars go to prison and others write television shows."
Mr. Cat has carefully worked his way up from $100 to a $1,000,000 pot. He can walk away with enough money to buy a fresh couch to scratch every day for the rest of his life. But he has to first correctly answer the impossible question for cats and cat owners.
Kenny Loggins's performance of "Danger Zone" became famous when it was included in the soundtrack of the 1986 movie Top Gun. It's instantly recognizable as a song about skilled men fearlessly risking their lives and having fun while doing it.
So it fits well with the thrilling dogfighting scenes in the 7 Star Wars movies. Weston Wong compiled the best of those combat sequences and set them to "Danger Zone." Now I can easily imagine Tom Cruise piloting an X-wing fighter.

He was a madman, a motor mouth and a total mess when he took his mask off, and by the light of the moon he would leap into the fray and take apart the bad guys one limb at a time. He was Deadpool The Dark Merc, and his mission was simple- kill enough a-holes to build up a healthy appetite, then go dig in to a plate full of tacos and chimichangas. But there was just one problem with Wade's plan- some Joker from Gotham had wandered into the wrong funny book, and he refused to pack up his clown white and go!
Comic book mashups don't come much cooler than this The Dark Merc Returns t-shirt by Saqman, slip it on and feel the power to break the fourth wall coursing through your veins!
If you're into craft beers, then you know there are a lot of seriously weird beers out there. The thing is, some of those brews are actually amazing, while others are just plain nasty. Bon Appetit recently went ahead and taste tested some of the most bizarre brews on the market -from the one made with yeast out of the brewer's beard to the one made with a sheep dung-smoked whale testicle. They give you a good idea of which of these beers are actually good and which are just gimmicks -though each of these companies almost certainly has die-hard fans who will defend their brand until they die, so don't be surprised if you hear someone disagree entirely.
Some people still prefer to read magazines, books and newspapers while passing the time on the John, but for those who prefer something a little more technologically advanced, it's all about playing on your cell phone or tablet. The only problem is that some apps take too much time or require too much effort for typical bathroom sessions. If you're looking for the right app to use while you're going #2, this list is a lifesaver (you may even bookmark it so you can just download the apps while in the can). The ideas include everything from reading material to games and even sites to help you improve your movie streaming suggestions.
Look at this painting of the face of Marilyn Monroe.
These are tiny images of President Kennedy, who was allegedly one of her lovers.
Kim Dong Yoo is an amazingly precise artist. He makes paintings that are image mosaics of tiny figures--the same one for each painting. These aren't computer generated. He does them all by hand. You can see more of his work here, including paintings of Audrey Hepburn made of tiny Gregory Pecks and John F. Kennedy made of tiny Marilyn Monroes.
It's called the Rollercoaster Restaurant--and for good reason! This restaurant at the Alton Towers resort and amusement park in Staffordshire, UK has tiny rollercoaster tracks between the kitchen and each dining table. After the kitchen staff cooks your food, they place it in steel pots which attach to the metal tracks. Then they send your food rushing down to your table.
In the now iconic Game of Thrones title sequence, an astrolabe spins over the world, creating an impression of order. But beneath it, plots grow, both organically and mechanically. There are schemes within schemes, hidden within each other.
Game of Thrones is a story of politics--deadly politics, but also just slimy. What better way to illustrate the budding conspiracies everywhere than with slime mold? YouTube user Transcend Rules merged microscopic images of thriving molds with the opening music from the show.
Poor ducklings! 8 of them fell into a storm drain in Titirangi, New Zealand. Fortunately, the local volunteer fire brigade showed up to save the day. The firefighters opened the drain, then one of them hung upside down so that he could reach the ducks. After pulling the ducklings out, the firefighters placed them in a handy traffic cone, then released them to the care of their anxious mama.
Phillips Brewery is releasing a new pilsner. To mark the occasion, it plans to deliver its new product to one thirsty drinker who wins a contest using a 4-year old bald eagle named Hercules. The contest is called "Beer from a Bird." It's the company's retro response to Amazon.com drone delivery. CTV News reports:
The brewery has partnered with Duncan-based Pacific Northwest Raptors for the contest.
The organization, which aims to raise awareness and promote conservation for birds of prey, is supplying a four-year-old bald eagle named Hercules to deliver a single can of Pilsner to the winner.
“We wanted to be involved because our goal is to get people closer to these incredible birds,” said operations manager Robyn Radcliffe. “So they’ll hopefully feel more inspired to protect them in their natural habitats, to learn more about ways that they can do that and to get more involved in conservation.” [...]
“He won’t be flying that far. Half a kilometre, probably. It’s sort of up to him,” Radcliffe said. “Our birds moods govern our interactions with them. We’re not going to ask them anything they’re not confident and comfortable doing. That’s very, very important to us.”
Half a kilometre translated into American is 0.31 miles. Despite the use of America's national bird, Phillips Brewery is actually located in Victoria, British Columbia. Here's the brewery's promotional video for the contest:
When companies want to increase their profile before their stock goes public they think about what their brand represents, so when Siemens Healthcare wanted to make a splash they knew their name would need work.
In order to shed the double entendre associated with their brand and stop being the butt of everyone's joke they started looking for a new name to go by and finally settled on a real winner- Healthineers.
Siemens announced their new name by forcing employees to attend a mandatory "dance concert", where they were introduced to the song they'd be hearing in their nightmares for years to come. Healthineers, meet your future mutineers!
Gene Belcher can be a bit greedy at times, but for some reason people still want to eat him all up when he starts playing fart noises on his keyboard or dresses up in his Beefsquatch costume. Bob has to live with little Gene, so he doesn't have nearly as much patience with the boy's beefy antics and really doesn't get why Gene is so cheesy all the time. Maybe maverick father and oddball son can find some middle ground with a little transcendental meditation, so Bob can see that strange son of his is actually the most enlightened Belcher in the bunch!
Become one with the burgers by wearing this All Of This Is Me Now! t-shirt by ClayGrahamArt, it's the taste two out of three geeks prefer over that other fictional burger joint.
Filmmakers use visual cues to help convey moods, feelings and subtext in their movies just like any other artist, and behind most of these cues lies a choice color palette.
By infusing shots with a carefully selected set of colors the viewer is subconsciously guided both visually and emotionally through the storyline, informed how to feel by the colors on the screen.
Plus, color palette control makes for really splendid looking shots!
The film fanatic behind @cinemapalettes has Tweeted over 200 color palettes derived from famous movie such as The Professional, Mad Max, Edward Scissorhands and My Neighbor Totoro, and they're taking requests.
Do Eraserhead! Oh wait, that's in black and white...
Shopping malls reached their peak level of awesomeness in the 80s, when they became the ultimate place for families to shop while their teens hung out and totally teened it up.
Anybody who visited a large mall in the 80s will remember the teen tribes who hung about, their clothing style-specific cliques making them stand out amidst the sea of shoppers.
But malls weren't just for bored teens- in many states they were the only place to go for one-stop shopping, and with the climate-controlled environment and massive food courts people never had to go home.
Michael Galinsky was 20-years-old when he decided to travel across America in one whirlwind month of 1989, capturing candid moments inside malls for a book entitled Malls Across America.
Michael's photos have a wonderful bystander quality about them, placing the viewer squarely in the scene so they can check out these eerily familiar environments from the inside.
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do, and when two too quickly goes back to one it can be just as bad. But they just don't make dance partners like they used to, and until Saitama comes across a creature who can withstand more than one of his punches he'll just have to get used to being a lonely army of one.
Sock it to your fellow One Punch Man fans with this One t-shirt by Bomdesignz, it's a real knockout!
Reading a good to great fantasy novel makes the reader feel like they've been swept up onto the back of a pegasus and flown to another world, where magic, intrigue and danger abound.
On the other hand, reading bad fantasy is like watching an episode of Barney, because you always know what's coming next as you wait for the monster to remove the mask and reveal the idiot inside.
That's why bad fantasy is best read in teeny, tiny snippets, so you don't get disillusioned and decide to give up on the genre altogether, and the best place to read bad tidbits is the Awful Fantasy Twitter account.
The Awful Fantasy Twitter account is full of horrible excerpts from fantasy stories that weren't actually written and will thankfully never make it into print, and just like smoking pipeweed it's easy to know your limits.
But if you take it one terrible toke at a time you'll soon find your love of fantasy renewed and reinforced, and the hilarity of those bad entries will stick with you like a Necromancer's curse.
Kids who use wheelchairs sometimes find that conventional costumes on sale won't work for them. That's when Walkin' & Rollin', a non-profit organization in Kansas City, comes in. The artists there specialize in the costuming and cosplaying needs of children who use wheelchairs.
It's the brainchild of Lon Davis, who started the organization after building a WALL-E costume for his son, Reese. After encountering the challenges of integrating a costume into a wheelchair, Davis began offering the service to other families for free. Last year, Davis described the design task to The Mighty:
“A lot of what Reese helps with is helping me to understand what works for a child in a wheelchair and what doesn’t,” Davis told The Mighty. “When I build a costume for his chair, he will give me hints like, ‘No, you can’t do that because then I can’t reach my brakes for my chair,’ or ‘If you attach that bar here instead, then I can get in and out of my chair easier.'”
You can see photos of costumes that Walkin' & Rollin' has produced here.
In 2011, the 1985 hit film Back to the Future was banned from China. Why? Because at tha time, China banned any film about time travel. The Chinese argument was that time travel stories are disrespectful toward history.
That's an unconventional reason for banning a film, but it's not the only one. You can see nine others in this video by Screen Rant, including explanations for why E.T. was age-restricted in Norway and why Mad Max was prohibited in New Zealand.
