Cookie Monster Has Some Profound Thoughts About Food


Cookie Monster, often associated with such musings as ‘C is for Cookie’ and ‘Om, nom, nom,’ can actually be very cultured and insightful.

This is proven in the short film, Simply Delicious Shower Thoughts with Cookie Monster. Inspired by the subreddit Shower Thoughts, Cookie Monster soaks in some culture at a few art museums, while letting us in on his most profound thoughts about food.

Verbal gems such as “Lasagna is just spaghetti-flavored cake” and “Your stomach thinks all potatoes are mashed” are just a few of Cookie’s deep thoughts. Prepare to have your mind blown… by a Muppet.

Sushi Snow Globes Exist


Snow globes are great for showing off the places you’ve been and the holidays you love. They’re also good at providing seconds of entertainment… until the novelty of watching floating glitter wears off.

To help make snow globes infinitely more entertaining, artist Eri Nami created Sushi Snow Globes. In place of a plastic NYC skyline or boring winter scene, there’s a submerged piece of raw fish and rice.

The sushi placed in the globes is actually very realistic… they’re just a lot more sparkly.

A Detailed Map of Middle Earth Drawn on A Starbucks Coffee Cup


Besides providing a place for their ubiquitous mermaid logo, an ingredient checklist, and your name spelled wrong, Starbuck’s coffee cups are a great blank canvas to create art.

However, we’ve never seen cartography involved in Starbucks cup art — which makes this detailed map of Middle Earth from The Lord of The Rings that much more impressive. Even better, it was left behind by the unknown artist for a Starbucks barista to find.

As far as we know, all the map points are spelled correctly. Can any Hobbits out there confirm this?

Mother Makes Sunny-Side-Up Egg Art For Her Kids’ Breakfasts


In most homes, you get one choice for eggs… scrambled. And, they’re never made into awesome food art.

Hong Kong-based mom, Anne Widya, is here to change that. Although her kids’ eggs are also made just one way, they’re the far superior sunny-side-up. And, rather than placing one egg alone on a plate, the egg is accompanied by a work of art. Scrambled eggs can’t do that.

A Volkswagen Covered in Popcorn


Ditch the fancy paint job and consider covering your ride with fluffy popcorn. That’s what a few art students from The Braunschweig University of Art were recently thinking, when they covered a Volkswagen with popcorn.

Whether the car has completely been consumed by birds yet, we’re not sure, but each kernel was adhered to the VW with hot glue gun. It just needs a buttering every few months.
