Slime Vomiting Dog Toy:

In August, Bandai subsidiary Mega House will ship its new "Biri Biri Kaze Hiki Wanko," ("shocking sick puppy") toy, which commemorates the thirtieth anniversary of toy slime with a plastic vomiting doggy.

This game functions somewhat like Milton Bradley’s Operation, though with a much higher ick factor: the toy puppy, who has caught a cold, drools a concoction of slime and plastic germs. Players must extract these germs using the tweezers without letting the metal part touch the slime, an act which produces a buzzing shock. The player who collects the most germs wins. Play continues by loading the mess into a compartment in the dog’s head. LINK

DRANK: The Anti-Energy Drink

by Sarah DiGregorio

There are plenty of strange products out there, and they all need a publicist. This morning, I got in to the office and was greeted by a message from a sleepy- sounding woman calling about Drank "the anti-energy drink we're calling the extreme relaxation beverage."

Isn't that already covered by a little thing called wine? No? This was too good to pass up, so I gave a call back.

Turns out, this is a carbonated, grape-flavored beverage spiked with melatonin, valerian root and rose hips. Apparently it is "very, very popular in Houston," and it's sold throughout the south in liquor and convenience stores.

So, does it make you sleepy? I asked the publicist. Yes, and she hears it's good with vodka. Oh, something that makes it more likely I'll fall asleep while drinking? Excellent.
What, you might wonder, was the creator thinking? I'm glad you asked. He was thinking of the hip hop community. Direct from the press release:

From design to production, every aspect of this calming drink was inspired by today’s popular hip hop artists who embrace the much sought-after hip hop lifestyle that encourages people to capture a stress-free state of mind.

The drink's tagline is "slow your roll." So if that's something you need to do, keep your eye out. Drank will be hitting stores in New York soon.

Behold, The Atheist's Nightmare!

Check out this installment in the infamous series of religious anti-evolution videos starring former TV star Kirk Cameron. In this one, Kirk looks on in amazement as some weenie explains that the banana is "the atheist's nightmare," because it is so perfectly suited to the human hand that God must have created it expressly for our benefit.

Pringles Can Designer Dies | Buried In Pringles Can:

SkullznEyez Loves Pringles Chips!
From the Cincinnati Enquirer:
Dr. Fredric J. Baur was so proud of having designed the container for Pringles potato crisps that he asked his family to bury him in one.

His children honored his request. Part of his remains was buried in a Pringles can - along with a regular urn containing the rest - in his grave at Arlington Memorial Gardens in Springfield Township.

Dr. Baur, a retired organic chemist and food storage technician who specialized in research and development and quality control for Procter & Gamble, died May 4 at Vitas Hospice. The College Hill resident was 89.
