'WTF' on Serious Eats

Photo of the Day: Lobster Dog

File this under holy-what-the-you've-got-to-be-kidding. The Lobster Dog. We've been all hung up on lobster rolls lately, but really? Isn't this going too far? Is mating with a hot dog really making the situation better? Whether horrifying or amazing, the Lobster Dog is sure a site to behold. More

Di Fara Taking Pizza Orders via Facebook

On Di Fara's Facebook page, someone asks: "Can we place orders via facebook???" To which the Di Fara page improbably answers: "I do not mind at all allowing orders to be placed via facebook. the only issue is I only check in to facebook a certain time of day and if its not placed within that window of time , I may miss it ...happens often ! if you know a day or two in advance that you intend to come in, that is always helpful ..."

Coffee Chronicles: WTF is Brewing In Fort Greene

Let's be honest: who hasn't wanted a deliciously crafted cup of coffee while stopping for a pair of designer sneakers on their way to the dog run? Dynamic Fort Greene entrepreneur Asio Highsmith (who owned posh speakeasy the Hideout on Adelphi, and who currently owns fancy footwear store Pedigree next door) has deployed such a high-concept, minimal coffeebar on Fort Greene that passersby might wonder: WTF?

California Mayor Charged with Stealing Industrial Mixer for Homemade Pizza

Sounds like this guy is a real pizza obsessive. From the L.A. Times: "Hawthorne Mayor Larry Guidi, who had led the city for nearly two decades, was charged Tuesday in connection with stealing a commercial food mixer from the local school district because he allegedly needed more dough for his home pizza oven." We'd reach out to him for a Q&A for My Pizza Oven, but somehow I don't think he'd grant our request. [via Eater] More

More from Anselmo's Owner on Red Hook Pizzeria's Demise

[Photograph: Adam Kuban] Wow. Just wow. As you may know, Anselmo's closed at the end of 2009, announcing the news on its website. While the original announcement remains, one of the partners added more detail--probably more detail than he should have, because he ended up deleting much of it. Luckily, the blog I Dream of Pizza has captured for posterity the full text of the addendum. Here's a snip: My landlady is telling the people of Red Hook that i have been in prison and jail. She's right. I was in prison for manufacturing explosives. It's public record and... More

K.C. Pit Master Making Smoked Pizza

The Wilmington Star News reports on a recent WTF pizza moment at the Currituck BBQ Classic in Corolla, North Carolina: When I heard [Chris] Marks say that at the recent Currituck BBQ Classic in Corolla, I thought, "He's smoking something." But Marks was serious. The owner of Kansas City's Three Little Pigs BBQ & Catering told me he simply places rolled-out pizza crust directly on the smoker grate, adds sauce, cheese and toppings and then bakes the pizza for about 45 minutes at about 275 degrees. The crust, he says, comes out cracker crisp, the pie smoky and flavorful. Related... More

Two Idiot Domino's Employees Do Nasty Things to Food, Upload Videos, Get Fired

See the videos, at Consumerist. Wow. I love how quickly this went down. Last night, at 7:26 p.m., Consumerist posted videos that some dumbass Domino's employees had taken showing one of them doing disgusting things with food that was presumably sent out to customers--putting banana peppers up his nose and then on a sandwich, sneezing on cheesy bread. Consumerist readers, using the YouTube account handle and the few identifiable details they could see in the videos, tracked down the Domino's location this occurred in and alerted Domino's corporate. By 10:26 a.m. this morning came word from Domino's HQ that... More

Disney Eggs Are Completely Pointless But Kids Will Probably Want Them

Nothing is safe from Disney's grasp: Disney Farm Fresh Eggs are eggs with drawings of Disney characters' heads printed on them. That's it. Crack the egg and the Disney fun is gone, unless you have a Mickey-shaped egg mold, in which case you can use that to stretch the Disney theme and fry an egg that will barely resemble the plastic-looking one in the commercial. StitchKingdom.com points out that Japan has been sticking Mickey's head onto eggs for years, not that that makes it any less pointless. Not sure what the manufacturer's price is, but if you do find yourself addicted to eggs decorated with images of Mickey and friends, you can buy loads of coupons on eBay. Save... More
