Pita Bread Pencil Holder

Stop using perfectly good flatbreads to wrap up your writing and drawing tools. Inspired by an Israeli flatbread called ashtanur, creative firm Mohar Design has come up with a concept for a durable and hunger-inducing pencil holder. Just don’t get your tools mixed up with your shawarma.

Update: The Ashtanur Utensils Case is now available at Etsy.

Sriracha Popcorn by The Oatmeal

Matt of The Oatmeal really likes Sriracha. So much so, that he recently caught the attention of food company/bacon enthusiasts J&D’s, and they’ve teamed up to bring us Sriracha Popcorn.

Rather than just pouring rooster sauce all over the bag — as Matt may have been tempted to do — the recipe is a well-balanced mixture of salt, pepper, garlic, and sriracha. And, the label is courtesy of The Oatmeal. Available at The Oatmeal Shop here.


Plush Spiked Watermelon

It’s inevitable that your kids will eventually be exposed to a spiked watermelon. And if you don’t teach them early, their first experience with one is going to be at some back alley BBQ, or they’ll fall in with the wrong picnic crowd. Fortunately, Felicia Haywood of Fluffy Flowers created the Plush Spiked Watermelon, as a cute learning tool.

So if your kids are going to learn how to properly inject a watermelon with vodka — they might as well do it as adorably as possible, and under your supervision.

This Is Now The World’s Hottest Vodka

Recently, we were introduced to the innards-melting 100,000 Scovilles Naga Chilli Vodka — touted as the world’s hottest vodka. Not content with breaking the six-figure heat index, the sick bastards at Master of Malt have doubled their efforts, and created the 250,000 Scovilles Naga Chilli Vodka.

Once again using the Naga Jolokia chili, a.k.a. the Ghost Pepper – the distillers steep them in 80-proof vodka, then filter and bottle it, all while wearing gas masks. Naturally, there is a disclaimer on the product page for those foolish enough to actually buy this, and so that Master of Malt cannot be held responsible for what this product does to you inside and out.

We have created a monster, summoned from the very bowels of hell, formed in a vile carboy filled with a horrid mound of Naga Jolokia chillies (the world’s hottest chillies), steeped in grain vodka. The result is the unspeakable 250,000 Scovilles vodka – a chilli vodka so horrendous we strongly recommend you don’t purchase it.

The Ballad of Poisonberry Pete, An Animated Western Starring Pies

The Ballad of Poisonberry Pete is an animated short film that follows a day in the life of a villainous pie in the wild west. Filled with dramatic shots and topped with great music — in the end, someone gets their just ‘desserts.’ Did we mention that the film is laden with pie puns?

The film was created by a few graduates of Ringling College of Art and Design. Enjoy.
