Smart people have all kinds of delicious stuff in their heads! Well, now you can eat it. You can get Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare or Sigmund Freud candy in a book-shaped package. Each wrapper has the face of the genius on it. Shakespeare tastes like lemon, Poe is grape and for some mysterious reason Freud reminded us of bananas. Food for thinkers! Looks great on a bookshelf.
Today the Department of Impossible Cuteness invites you to play another round of “Eat it or keep it as a pet?” RocketNews24 assembled an overwhelmingly kawaii collection of hard-boiled eggs that’ve been altered and decorated to turn them into all sorts of cute bento creatures, from chickens, bunnies, cows and pandas to Pikachu and a wee baby seal.
Could you conquer the debilitating cuteness of these enhanced eggs in order to enjoy them as lunch?

Behold the sweet, sticky, deep-fried awesomeness that is the Double Hundred Dozen, for those days when a single dozen doughnuts simply won’t suffice. It’s the the biggest box of doughnuts we’ve ever seen and it was just unveiled in London by Krispy Kreme UK for their new Occasions offering.
The 3.5 m (~11.5 ft) long box contains 2,400 Original Glazed doughnuts. It took eight staff members worked together to fill the box and load it onto the delivery truck. The company is currently holding a contest to celebrate the launch of their large-scale delivery service. One lucky business will win a Double Hundred Dozen. We hope the winners aren’t messy eaters, because that’s how you get ants.
And please, should you dare to order a Double Hundred Dozen doughnuts, please make sure you brush and floss after feasting on all that sugary fried dough.
Put the needle on the record, play the record, then eat the record! German inventor Peter Lardong creates perfectly playable and completely delicious chocolate records in his home in Berlin. He experimented with making records using ice cream, beer, cola, sausages, cheese and butter before hitting upon his special chocolate mixture of cocoa, cocoa butter and lecithin. Lardong makes his mouthwatering records by pouring and smoothing melted chocolate onto silicone molds of his favorite records. After the chocolate sets and cools in the firdge, the record is removed from the mold, ready to be played and eaten.
Each of Lardong’s edible chocolate records costs approximately $6 and can be successfully played on a standard record player up to 12 times. That is, assuming you can hold out that long before giving into the temptation to chomp on a chocolate record. Some records are meant to be broken, these records are made to be played and then eaten.

"The world is so full of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.”
Because who doesn’t love anthropomorphic food and animal friends? Our friend and awesome artist Cuddly Rigor Mortis (previously featured here) just opened a solo exhibition of new paintings, entitled Happy As Kings, at Gallery Nucleus. The show runs through September 21, 2014.
Inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson poem, “Happy Thought”, the artist introduces us to a group of gleeful royals that find happiness in the ordinary yet wonderful things in life.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it down in person, click here to view the exhibition online and even purchase originals and prints.

Today the Department of Awesome Parenting is sitting at the breakfast table eagerly hoping someone will make an awesome batch of animal pancakes just for them. Redditor ptgkbgte recently shared these photos of amazing pancakes that his friend (name currently unknown) makes for his own lucky kids using pancake batter dyed with food coloring.
We’re hoping more information surfaces about this creative dad and how he makes these fantastic flapjacks. If you happen to know who he is and/or if he has his own website, please let us know.

We hope you’re hungry. Today the Archie McPhee Library is cooking with The Bug Chef, David George Gordon, author of The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook [Buy on Amazon]. Last year The Bug Chef paid a visit to the Archie McPhee store where he demonstrated some of his recipes for cooking insects such as crickets, grasshoppers, ants, water bugs, spiders and centipedes. Yum!
Brave Seattleites were invited to take a taste-test and experience the flavors and textures of Chef Gordon’s creepy-crawly cuisine.
Grasshopper Kabobs were served along with “Niblets & Cricklets” (what Chef Gordon calls cups of crickets and corn), Sonoran Desert scorpions in Scorpion Scaloppini, and Deep Fried Tarantulas. The Bug Chef says that fried tarantula is one of his tastiest dishes. You just have to remember to singe off all their little hairs before battering and frying them.
Click here to watch a brief video of the event. The reactions on the faces of our customers as they eat the bug dishes are priceless.
Click here to order your own copy of The Eat-a-Bug Cook. Even if you aren’t up for eating a plateful of creepy-crawlies, it makes a great conversation piece and a fun present for foodie friends.

Feast your eyes on this mouthwatering entirely condiment-based portrait of the inimitably awesome Sir Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. It was painted by artist Jennifer Marshall using ketchup, mustard, hoisin sauce and bleu cheese sauce. “Commander Data, please bring the veggie tray. Number One, you’re in charge of supplying the tater tots. Commander Worf has the onion rings. Snacks raised everyone? Engage.”

Oh Japan, you’ve done it again. Perhaps the only thing better than eating yummy slices of toast is eating toast shaped like an adorable teddy bear that cheerfully sits up to greet you right before you devour it.
Called the Ernest Bread Pop Up!, this delightful product is the work of Japanese company Tokyu Hands. It even comes with three interchangable facial expressions so you can customize your scrummy toast bear before you send him to your belly.
