A Sandwich a Day: Pulled Bacon at Animals

Nestled in the cozy little expansion of The Wayland, the newly opened Animals offers a selection of about a dozen sandwiches that sound as wild as its name suggests. The most obviously enticing option on the menu was the Pulled Bacon ($9), and barring some bread issues, it's nearly as delicious as it is pretty. More

Video: Hippopotamus Eating a Watermelon

What I think while watching this video of a hippo eating a watermelon: "Whoaaa. Awesome. One bite and it's just...totally destroyed." What a watermelon thinks while watching this video: "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, WHAT THE, NOOOOO [weeps], OH GOD." More

Is Your Pet Named After a Food (or Food Critic)?

A few weeks ago, my friend sent around an email asking for help naming her new dog. Some names that were tossed around: Pork chop...Burrito...Kumquat. My vote went to Burrito, hands down (paws down?). But they decided to go with another name—a name that's not even a food, but a food critic. Bruni, as in Frank Bruni. I knew they read the former New York Times critic's reviews every Wednesday morning, religiously, but wow. Anyone else have a pet with a food-related name? More

Do You Have a Hard Time Eating Animal-Shaped Foods?

There are vegans and vegetarians, and then there's a subgroup (likely very small) of people who aren't necessarily either, but get freaked out by eating foods shaped like animals. This topic came up after yesterday's poll, where we asked you to name what part of the chocolate Easter bunny you usually bite into first. But for some people, the shapes bring back too many memories of stuffed animals or pets. Eat something that resembles Fluffy?! More

Animals-Eating Friday: 'Nolan's Cheddar' Mighty Mouse 'Commercial'

London-based filmmaker and animatronics whiz John Nolan released this video late last year, but it only seems to have made its way to the U.S. within the last couple of weeks. The fake commercial is for "Nolan's Cheddar," with the tagline "Seriously strong." Strong? If you haven't seen it yet, it's worth a watch. And you'll see what Nolan means by "strong" after the jump.... More

Animals Eating Friday: Koala Eating a Leaf

We realize that photos of [insert animal here] eating/doing something else with [insert food here] falls somewhere between ridiculous and maybe-not-worth-your-time. But on Fridays, they seem acceptable. Oliver, a young koala at the Riverbanks Zoo in South Carolina, was caught here chowing down on a single leaf. Now is that considered a koala snack or a whole meal? Either way he looks pretty pleased to wrap his marsupial paw around it.
