A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 6 comments

As part of a major rebranding effort involving celebrity spokespeople like soccer star David Beckham and actress Salma Hayek, Burger King unveiled singer Mary J. Blige's commercial for Burger King's new crispy chicken snack wraps* at the beginning of this month—and then quickly pulled them down due to, in Burger King's words, music licensing issues, not at all mentioning the criticism the commercial received for promoting racial stereotypes (or just being lame). Last week, members of the comedy troupe The Second City made a series of increasingly over-the-top commercials spoofing the original and the controversy surrounding it. More

Slice Adam Kuban 5 comments

An email from a BRILLIANT Slice'r: "Singing along to Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face' one evening while making pizza I absentmindedly changed the chorus to 'Pizza Face.' The image brought me up short with disgust, as you can imagine, but there seemed potential in the idea of a pizza parody of the song.... Here it is; I hope you like it. —drbubbles" More

You may have seen this video in last week's Look Who's Talkin' roundup, but if not, I figured I'd highlight it here. The Rutles were a Beatles parody band created by Eric Idle and Neil Innes of Monty Python. I almost can't hear the word onions without thinking of it. More

What would The Nightmare Before Christmas be like if it had centered on St. Patrick's Day instead of Christmas? It would have a lot more frat boys and vomit (but feature the same catchy songs sung by Jack Skellington). More

Brian Butterfield has a diet for you: The Butterfield Diet! You may be starving yourself during the week, but on Saturday, or "Treat Day," you get 24 hours to eat whatever you want. Whatever. You. Want. Pints o' cream, sandwich casserole, chocolate quail's eggs, discount foie gas, egg 'n' ham slabs—you name it! You just have to eat it all within 24 hours, which technically means you could eat for 24 hours straight. Hell, why not—you deserve it.... More

Robyn Lee 3 comments

Food Safety Music is the creation of Dr. Carl Winter of the University of California at Davis. By listening to Winter's songs and watching his music videos, you can learn about bacterial contamination, irradiation, pesticides, and more! His parodies may be silly, but they're more fun than taking a typical food safety class (I should know; I've taken a few of those classes). Watch his video for Stomachache Tonight about the dangers of undercooked chicken, after the jump.... More
