The $250 Salad Delivery [Laugh of the Day]

Posted by Foodie Buddha on February 14, 2013

So the gang at College Humor wanted to see what would happen if they ordered a salad from the aptly named Just Salad (site) in New York City.  Not much of a story there … until you realize that they decided to order every single possible topping (including double meats) for their single serving lettuce bowl.  That too may not seem that impressive, until you consider that Just Salad offers up something like 200 toppings.  Sadly, I think Just Salad failed since they weren’t able to fit everything in one bowl.

It’s kind a funny even if it’s not on the level of CH’s overly indulgent and incredibly intricate prank war series].  So watch it and then berate me for robbing you of like 5-minutes of your life; or, don’t watch it and miss out on seriously impressive food humor.

The Popinator: The Automatic Popcorn Delivery System

Posted by Foodie Buddha on September 17, 2012

In today’s edition of “excessively overblown use of technology to deliver a product nobody really actually needs” (otherwise known as #WTF), a company by the name of Popcorn Indiana gives us The Popinator.  Apparently, this popcorn popper not only cooks your corn kernels, it also fires them in your general exact location using all sorts of fancy, smart person’s technology.

If one ignores rational thought regarding constructive use of time, then there is absolutely no reason to doubt that this is actually real.  That said, it appears to be nothing more than a functional proof of concept.  Thus, it’s not for sale.  Which is shocking, b/c who isn’t interested in having their face assaulted by flying popcorn kernels.  I wonder how it does with butter …

Delicious Anticipation: EMP + Alinea = 21st Century Limited [Cool Videos]

Posted by Foodie Buddha on August 24, 2012

This is what happens when two of the best restaurants in the country (Eleven Madison Park and Alinea) team up together:

Granted this is more interesting for those of us general food fanatics than it is for anyone belted down here in Atlanta.  However, that’s a pretty awesome teaser video, and one can only imagine what Grant Achatz and Daniel Humm have up their sleeves.  They have a facebook page, so monitor that if you want to keep up with the news drip.

Julia Child Remix: The Rapping Cooking Video 1

Posted by Foodie Buddha on August 14, 2012

So Julia Child, the now defunct Grand Dame of all things cookery, has a new music video out.  Despite hitting the century mark tomorrow (August 15th), she remains incredibly spry for a dead lady.

Witness:

So take that Tupac, because if you’re going to come back from the grave, forget those silly NOT holograms and go with the autotuned rap video meets cooking video mashup.

How To Make Yelp Interesting [Updated]

Posted by Foodie Buddha on July 28, 2012

How do you make Yelp worth reading?  Simple … have someone else do the reading for you.  In this case, we have actor Chris Kipiniak putting his dramatic spin on a 1-star review for the Stratford Diner in Stratford, NJ.  The review in question comes courtesy the one and done Dalia B.  Maybe this new found form of internet fame will coax her out of retirement.

Save to foursquare

UPDATE: and another one is now live featuring Therese Plummer. So yeah, these are b-level (at best) actors but they’re still pretty awesome … check it out:

GA’s Jack McBrayer + Triumph Go For Insulting Hot Dogs

Posted by Foodie Buddha on June 16, 2012

The other night, Conan O’Brien recruited Georgia boy Jack McBrayer (the page on 30 Rock) to join Triumph the Insult Comic Dog at Chicago’s famed Wieners Circle, a hot dog stand with an attitude.  No doubt, Triumph is my favorite member of Conan’s entourage.  So it stands as no surprise that this bit turned out fan-freaking-tastic.  The Robert Smigel voiced puppet is as bad as they come; and, when paired with the softly presented McBrayer, we are treated to comic gold.  Check it out!

If you haven’t heard of the Wieners Circle, I strongly suggest you listen to This American Life’s episode on the NSFW eatery.  Meanwhile, if you don’t have an hour, and really just want some laughs … stick to the video containing the sweet piece of comic genius.

If You’re Going To Skip Out On A Check ….

Then this is the way to do it:

As the jump took place at Liu Bar, a swanky Australian restaurant, you might not know exactly how high up 243 meters is. It’s roughly 800 ft … so yeah, that was a hell of a jump.

Shit Bartenders Say

Posted by Foodie Buddha on January 20, 2012

Service interruption: While y’all slept and we threw down at a couple of Midtown saloons with two very large ladies [*wink*], my server crashed … so apologies there.

That aside, it’s obvious that I’m a slave to internet trends … right? So let me hop on one of the latest trends to get all crazy (The Shit _____ Say series).  Today’s episode is “Shit Bartenders Mixologists Say.”

It comes complete with references to Tales of the Cocktail, a super huge drunkfest cocktail conference, and the ever awesome Imbibe Magazine.  Watch and laugh:
