Feb 17, 2015 11:00 am

Kids find the dumbest things funny. Seriously.
Nov 26, 2014 3:00 pm

Oh, childhood. When every joke is funny and pudding cups are most definitely considered to be food. Speaking of food, what exactly is going on with these children's view of nutrition on Bad Kids Joke, a this long, storied Tumblr of confusing situations, half-sentences and no regard for a punchline? Here are our top 5 picks we'd reply to with "okay honey, now go pick up your toys."

Hit The LiarTown USA Supermarket For These Weird Specials

Our new favorite Tumblr redesigns the weekly sale
May 30, 2014 10:00 am

Hope you're day's about as done as ours is, otherwise might we suggest a less crack-addictive Tumblr? LiarTown USA, by LA writer/graphic designer/general humorist Sean Tejaratchi, is a golden cornocopia of all that was previously innocuous, turned terrible. Scroll through for old books, magazines, records and TV shows you wish existed, porno spoofs that sound way better than the original (as is generally the case) and a way more exciting take on supermarket specials.   

Remember The Tumblr That Mashed Up Album Covers And Tacos? Viva Album Tacos!

Fall down the Tumblr hole of cover art and tacos
May 19, 2014 4:00 pm

This is an official call to our friends, Chicago-based DJs The Hood Internet, to please revive Album Tacos. Their Tumblr (as is congruous with their style) is a mashup of two great things: album art and, you guessed it, the mighty taco. Dormant since December of 2013 (AHEM!), this page still deserves some views. In fact, check out a few of the reader-submitted posts and just try to stop.

From The Blog-To-Book Universe: Kaffekokarkokboken

That's Swedish for coffee maker cuisine. Yum?
May 2, 2014 2:00 pm

All the recipes on Katja Wulff's blog, now a book, can be made using your standard coffeemaker. Frying bacon for cauliflower soup is as easy as removing the pot from the heating element and tossing it on the bare surface. What's it going to do, stick? It's bacon! (And coffeemakers are washable). This and more small appliance brilliance, after the jump.

Used To Be A Pizza Hut is now our favorite website
Apr 8, 2014 12:00 pm

For many readers of a particular age and geographical origin, Pizza Huts were a part of growing up. Remember the $4.99 lunch buffet? The Land Before Time puppets? Sadly, Pizza Huts are dying. But that doesn't mean the iconic structures die as well.

Steak Tartare, A Flashback From My Training Blog

Or, "none of my friends would eat what I made."
Mar 19, 2014 2:30 pm

My very first blog post seemed popular enough on Facebook, lots of comments arguing whether shotglasses filled with sea urchin, ponzu and sake were gross or delicious, so I followed it up with steak tartare. Most of my friends had tried the uni shooters with enough coaxing. But nobody would try the tartare, which was disheartening. Here's how I won that game.
