    These are shots of some of the foot items available at the Pikachu Cafe in Japan. "Foot?" Obviously I meant food. The cafe will be open for a limited time (until August 31st) outside the Pokemon XY movie exhibit at Tokyo City View in Roppongi Hills. I want that burger and t... / Continue →

    This is an iPhone case that looks like a marine isopod. Most people will just assume it's a giant lobster tail though. You can get a silver version for $80, gold for $120, or neither for free. I'm going to go with the free option. Mostly because one of these will never fit ... / Continue →

    So somebody realized the 2014 World Cup Brazil logo looks like a facepalming Captain Picard. You think the person who designed it was inspired by The Next Generation? That answer is no unless you're a crazy person. Come on, I believe in gnomes and fairies and even I can reco... / Continue →

    This is a knife block that looks like an X-wing fighter (£70, ~$120). It comes with and holds five different knives (cook's, bread, carving, utility and paring). What's your favorite kind of knife? Mine is a ninja sword. "That is not a knife." And my penis isn't a laser gun... / Continue →

    This is the $30 giant cockroach pool float. It's a raft that looks like a giant cockroach. Speaking of, I saw a giant cockroach in the hallway yesterday and tried to kill it by by stepping on it. "Tried?" TRIED -- it didn't die. This wasn't on carpet either, this was hard ... / Continue →

    Note: Official website for Bananaproducts HERE. These are a couple caution wet floor cones that look like banana peels. Pretty cute right? I bet if I sat on one naked I could slide down to at least the start of the text. What's the first thing that comes to mind when you th... / Continue →

    This isn't actually a new concept, I reported on panda and tiger dogs back in 2010, they're just making the rounds again because apparently people in China can't get enough dogs that don't look like dogs. Man, I want a dog with its hair cut to look like a lion. I take that ba... / Continue →

    This is a naked lady bodypainted and posed to look like a rainbow macaw by artist Johannes Stoetter. Can you see her? I have never been so attracted to a bird before. That's not true. You know those dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets? Those things are amazing. I have a separa... / Continue →

    This is a series of Batman villains imagined as cartoon sharks by artist Jeff Victor. Why? No clue. I already told you -- I'm tired of asking questions. Some people just get these ideas in their heads and run with them. Me? I only run with scissors. Jk jk, that's dangero... / Continue →

    Sure to be all the rage in the goth community (which I am a huge proponent of), a group of cat breeders have developed Lykio Cats, a breed that stems from a genetic mutation in a domestic shorthair cat that prevents it from growing a full coat of fur (including on its face), gi... / Continue →

    A new species of sea slug was discovered of the coast of Brazil by Federal University of Ceará Tropical Marine master's student Felipe de Vasconcelos Silva and named Tritonia khaleesi in honor of Game of Throne khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen's braided hair. That's cool, sometimes... / Continue →

    Because Mother Nature clearly has way too much time on her hands, this is a species of fruit fly that's evolved realistic looking pictures of jumping spiders on its wings. Impressive, but I'd still like to see a pair of those naked lady trucker mudflaps. The idea of the ant... / Continue →

    This is the Magnolia tree that was transformed into a giant squid by sisters Jill Watt and Lorna using over four miles of yarn. Wait -- do trees even like playing dress up? Did Jill and Lorna at least ask it first? Because the last humanity needs right now is a battle with t... / Continue →

    This is the $4 Jawa sandcrawler soap made and sold by Geeksoap. Each 2.5oz crawler is made with 100% all natural and vegan ingredients and smells like the "sunny scent of endless Tatooine sand dunes." Admittedly, a handful of these would look great on the counter of my beach-... / Continue →

    These are the crabs arranged to look like a centipede by some unknown dining establishment in the world. I'm guessing somewhere in Japan. Would you eat it? Of course you would, they're just crabs. I would, but I'd have to close my eyes when it came and have a friend put all... / Continue →

    These are the skull shaped pancake molds sold by Williams-Sonoma. You get two forward-facing skulls and one profile. Unfortunately, it looks like they're either not for sale yet or they used to be but aren't anymore. That sucks if you really wanted them. Of course you could... / Continue →

    This is a trio of sea sponges that have cleverly grown themselves together to look like Cookie Monster. *whispering* Okay I was just informed that apparently they didn't do it on purpose. Or did they? Everybody knows the ocean is a huge fan of Sesame Street. Me: Back me ... / Continue →

    This is the $70 ThinkGeek Travel Boy Carry On Luggage. It's called the Travel Boy instead of Game Boy because why pay for licensing rights if you don't have to? That's like throwing money away. Not eating your whole meal at a restaurant is also like throwing money away, unle... / Continue →

    When I think of butt pudding I think of having an accident. This is different. This is JAPANESE butt pudding (previously: boob pudding). It comes as a little kit you can buy on Amazon and use to make your own jiggly massterpiece. DO NOT ADD RAISINS. Perfect for bachelor an... / Continue →

    Go look at yourself in the mirror. What do you see? A giant Doctor Who fan who also plays the ukulele? Congratulations, you're one of a kind. Just kidding, there are probably four of you, but you're still way more special than anybody has ever thought I was. You know those... / Continue →
