Italian Grandmas Try Olive Garden For The First Time… It Does Not Go Well


There are two kinds of people… Those who eat at Olive Garden, and Italians. However, the latter has the advantage of years of intensive tomato-based sauce and pasta training by an Italian grandma.

Buzzfeed, knowing that Italian grandmas have very particular palates and no inner monologue, sat a few of them down to try some of The Garden’s signature “dishes.”

The result is what you might expect. Except for one pair of grandmas, who seemed to enjoy everything. Although their accents are a little suspect. Please enjoy…

If you just can’t get enough rainbows and gummy bears, the Rainbow Gummy Bear Piñata Cake is here to help.

Created by The Simple Cooking Channel, the cake gets many many gummy bears involved, inside and out. They were even nice enough to provide a tutorial to help make your own… just in case you have any major life events coming up, where such a colorful cake might be appropriate.

Coffee Monsters, Coffee Spills Turned Into Adorable Monsters


Coffee spills are gonna happen. So, why not make these unfortunate little accidents as adorable as possible?

Coffee Monsters, by German creative professional Stefan Kuhnigk, sees the potential in these brown splotches. After some pencil to paper, Stefan turns coffee spills into adorable little creatures.

Although Stefan’s first spill was an accident that he made the best of, we assume that the 300 Coffee Monsters that followed were done on purpose. Check out more below and over at Kuhnigk’s Instagram.









If McDonald’s Made Happy Meals For Adults


As we get older, the only reason we seem to get jealous of little kids, besides their boundless energy, is that they still get to order McDonald’s Happy Meals.

But what if Mickey Ds cared about adults, as much it caters to impressionable kids? The result is a fun fictional series by Buzzfeed, where they illustrated a series of Adult Happy Meals.

Although, we’d have to question the existence of a McWine, it does come in a convenient carrying box. Check out more below and over at Buzzfeed.









The Udder Milk Dispenser Keeps It Old-school


We’ve had it a little too good with our fancy milk cartons. It’s time to get back to basics, and dispense our milk like our teat-squeezing ancestors did.

Vache Á Lait, or ‘Milk Cow,’ is a fun dairy-dispenser that simulates the process of milking a cow. It includes a set of udders that, if properly squeezed, will allow your milky bounty to flow.

Brought to us by Design Studio 55, the project was submitted for the Milk Factory’s ‘What’s Next for Milk?’ competition. It’s also a call to action, hoping that we could at least form an appreciation for basic living. Your fancy cartons can’t do that.
