dog-balancing

Maymo The Lemon Beagle has talent. That talent is having enormous patience with his owner, as 100 fruits and vegetables are continuously placed on Maymo’s head to balance.

The stoic puppy appears to have the whole balancing act down too – whether it’s lettuce, asparagus, or even half a watermelon. Although, after a few seconds of produce-on-head, Maymo says, “Enough, now gimme my treat, human.” Please watch.

5

When you start seeing architecture as food, either it’s time for lunch, or you’re the creator of Gastro-Architecture.

Illustrator and art director of The New York Times Book ReviewNicholas Blechman, sees architecture as edible or as a food tool, and he’s got the adorable cartoon series to prove it.

Whether it’s the Fifth Avenue Apple Store as an ice cube, or the Cathedral of Brasilia as a crown roast, the playful series will have you looking at buildings in an entirely different way. Except art deco… very unappetizing.

Artist Akihiro Mizuuchi has come up with a way to combine a few of our favorite things… chocolate and LEGOS. And, not only are the candy bricks nice to look at, but they’re completely functional.
