Paddle Pops



More proof that everything is upside-down in Australia, as good old Popsicles become Paddle Pops.

Also, as in our previous entry on Gaytime Raspberry Roughs, I could easily imagine someone getting more than they bargained for when they requested a "paddle pop," especially if you went into a sketchy corner grocery store and asked for the flavor known as "dragon popper" and got some amyl nitrate instead.

Sodaburst



A solution without a problem. So much easier than scooping a dollop of vanilla ice cream into a glass of root beer. Now with limited flavor choices!

Strange Snacks

You will certainly have fun browsing at the Taquitos snack site and reading their blunt appraisals. For instance, on the item pictured above.

Taste: Weird chemical taste. Crunchy and thick, but rather nasty.

Aroma: They smell like rancid oil.

Read the whole four pages here.

A tip of the hat to pal Brad V. for finding this one.

Spray Cake

Newly available: cake in a spray can. Just spray, microwave, and eat.

But, of course, you'll also need some spray can frosting. That's already been available for a couple of years.

The Immortal Burger

David Whipple says he bought a McDonald's hamburger back in 1999, but instead of eating it, he kept it to see how long it would take to decompose. Fourteen years later, and the thing remains basically the same. It's free of mold and fungus and doesn't even smell bad. Only the pickle decomposed. [franchise.net.au]

King Ding Dong





If only the psychedlic-era King Ding Dong had been allowed to rule the Hostess company, they might still be with us today.
