Pizza Specials Inspired by 'Breaking Bad'


Are you watching Breaking Bad? If not, what the hell is wrong with you? It's by far the best thing on TV right now. There have been a couple of notable pizza moments in the show's history. Maybe that's what inspired the folks at Vinnie's Pizza in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to make these specials: the (Ba)con (Ba)d and the ... Meth-Ham-Feta-Bean. Clever.


Sign Promotes Trading Children for Doughnuts

Photograph from gordmckenna on Flickr Breaking with the tradition of signs reading "Warning: Unattended Children Will Be Sold to the Circus" or "Given a Cappuccino and a Free Puppy," we see a sign that implies a profit on the finder of any lost children.

The new signage and branding has begun rolling out across the chain's 800-some U.S. locations. [via Gordon Eats]... More

Must Wash Hands, Restaurant Bathroom Signage Blog

Must Wash Hands, a photo blog documenting "employees must" signs in restaurant loos. I heard once that the proper amount of hand-washing time was however long it took you to sing "Happy Birthday." Let's all not sing that aloud in the can, though. [via Eat Me Daily]... More

Photo of the Day: Porking the Nation

(Photograph courtesy of Rebecca Kolsky) Out of the blue, my buddy Paul Lukas, the genius behind ESPN.com's Uniwatch column, food writer for the New York Sun, and the publisher of my all-time favorite 'zine, Beer Frame: The Journal of Inconspicuous Consumption, shared this photo with me: "If you're receiving this, it's because I know you're fond of meat and/or interesting signage.
