Happy Fourth Of July!

2008 Topps Allen and Ginter # 109 Joey Chestnut (Hot Dog Eating Champion) MLB Baseball Card

What better way to celebrate America than with a 2008 Topps Allen and Ginter # 109 Joey Chestnut (Hot Dog Eating Champion) MLB Baseball Card? Keep it in your wallet so you remember how many hot dogs you’ll have to eat to break the record!

Hint (from Wikipedia):

In the 2012 contest, Chestnut won his sixth consecutive title by consuming a record-tying 68 hot dogs and buns (HDBs) in ten minutes.

Yikes. Hmm, maybe you’re better off not trying to pretend like your backyard BBQ is the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. In fact, I’m sure you are!

Rice Cube Squared

Rice Cube

Rice goes with everything. The plain white grain (okay, okay; brown too) can be used in dishes originating from anywhere across the globe. But that doesn’t mean it has to stick to being mounded together into a hemisphere. In fact, for those seeking to mold rice into cubes, there exists at least two choices.

Above, the Rice Cube is a fun geometrical puzzle that comes together to make rice cubes. Below, the Kotobuki Mini Cube Rice Mold gives rice fans a similar option.

Either way, use the rice molds to transform rice into whimsical cubes that can be used for sushi or whatever else one can dream up. Or stack up as the case may be.

Caffeinated Owls

Caffeinated Owls Art Print by Dave Mottram

Who needs a cup of coffee? The answer apparently, is owls. No wonder they stay up so late! Especially that double espresso caffeinated owl up there. He looks like he needs a biscotti to peck at.

Pizzaghetti In A Cup

A sloche is like a slushy. The frozen drink is available at Couche-Tard convenience marts. They have announced a new flavor just in time for summer. Pizzaghetti. Pizza. Spaghetti. Together at last in a cup.

Voici la publicité de la Sloche Pizzaghetti, disponible dans tous les dépanneurs Couche-Tard du Québec.
Cet été, vivez d’amour et d’eau frette avec Pizzaghetti !
Om nom nom nom !

Translated:
Here advertise the Sloche Pizzaghetti available in all Couche-Tard of Quebec.
This summer, experience love and shrink with water Pizzaghetti!
Om nom nom nom!

However, a little more digging uncovered this sad bit of info from Wikipedia:

Actual flavor of the “Pizza” half is strawberry, and the “Ghetti” half is kiwi.

Darn it.
