    This is Glass Gem Corn. It's a corn varietal with different colored kernels. I would have called it Rainbow Corn myself, but that's just me and I'm way better at naming things than some people. *ahem* Adam and Eve! The corn may look like candy, but there's no way it tastes... / Continue →

    This is a Jawa bento box by Flickr user/food artist vingt_deux. I'm not sure what the hell it's made out of, but it looks like not a very filling lunch. Let's see here -- some purple cabbage, a couple tomato slices, some torn pita, hummus, beans, and -- WTF is the Jawa even m... / Continue →

    Pepsi, in a race to beat Coke in the battle of earth-friendlier, which, while certainly respectable, sounds like the most boring fight ever, has announced they've found a way to produce plastic-like bottles entirely out of vegetable matter (NOT squirrels). But can you eat them... / Continue →

    Jurassic Park better change their lunch menu. In a report that shouldn't surprise anybody who's traveled back in time to have sex with them, numerous species of dinosaurs previously thought to be carnivorous may, in fact, have been herbivorous. Pfft, like I haven't seduced a ... / Continue →

    Note: This isn't the whole table (you can't even see General Tso's Chicken!) so click HERE to see the thing in all its super high-res glory and prepare to drool. Or vomit in your mouth so hard it sprays between the cracks in your teeth. I'm not gross you're gross. This is th... / Continue →

    The ThermaHelm motorcycle helmet keeps your brain on ice in the event of an accident. That's important because if you'll recall those anti-drug commercials from yesteryear: a cooked egg brain is no good. Except with buttered toast. I say throw a halved grapefruit into the mi... / Continue →

    I don't know if you could tell by the title but I was implying that I would tear that robotic bastard limb from limb right there in aisle four between the baby food and Maxi-Pads. Ain't no robot handling these eggs! The robotic assistant -- an advanced version of the Robovie-... / Continue →

    In Japan's unending quest to grow edibles shaped like other things comes these heart and star shaped cucumbers. These cucumbers represent the cumulative efforts of an agricultural coop determined to make food preparation a little bit more exciting. Comprised of nine women in... / Continue →

    They're mushrooms made from radishes. Now marinate on the depth of what I just said for a second. Still with me? *wheezing* Damn, I thought I lost you. Anyway, these power up mushroom radishes were made by video game themed bento maker extraordinaire, Anna The Red. Pretty ... / Continue →

    I was heavily vegetarian for almost four years when I was married (the dark years) and let me tell you: non-dairy cheese turns into hard plastic when baked in a Thanksgiving broccoli casserole. I still served it though. And not a single person tried it. So you know what I di... / Continue →

    That's right, a team at Warwick University have developed a race car that's made out of vegetables and runs on chocolate. Of course, gumdrops and licorice sticks would have been cooler, but hey, you work with what you've got. The racer isn't legal to race in the F3-series as ... / Continue →

    I'm not sure if you enjoyed the last episode of Isao Machii: Modern Samurai as much as I did, but if you didn't, you should watch it again until you do. Then we can start a book club. But instead of books we'll discuss Youtube videos and drink beer. Plus, if you're a chick, ... / Continue →

    Kelly Coffman-Lee is a fairly attractive 38-year old vegan who wanted to share her love of soy with the world through a custom license plate. Unfortunately, she was denied 'ILVTOFU' because of the double ententre. Which is pretty pathetic considering I just heard that steamin... / Continue →

    A Star Wars fan and culinary artist wanted to make a Star Wars-y dish, but was reluctant to eat any of the cool characters. The solution? You guessed it -- Jar Jar. Jar Jar Binks was easily the worst thing about The Phantom Menace. If I could create a scrumptious salad out o... / Continue →

    Apparently they have Darth Vader's helmet on display in the Star Wars exhibit at the Franklin Institute Science Museum I mentioned in last week's Yoda cookie post. So here it is. I'm glad there are pictures of it because I didn't remember it too well from the movie. Sure I c... / Continue →
