Coffee Monsters, Coffee Spills Turned Into Adorable Monsters

coffee-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

adult-happy-meals

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

milk-cow-4

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.

When Wine Labels Get Real

Whether you appreciate a good wine, or use it simply as a coping tool, the bottle’s label still plays an important role.

But what if, instead of a fancy script font or an illustration of an Italian vineyard, your label told the brutal truth? VinePair had a little fun with this concept and brings us 26 Honest Wine Labels.

Although these wine labels will probably make you feel worse…. it’s a great excuse to drink even more. Thank you, wine label.

Photographer Turns Her Dog’s Food-Stealing Into Art

KayaandtheStrawberriesJ1L3

Dogs steal people-food… it’s inevitable. So you might as well embrace it, as food photographer Jess Lessard did, by photographing your dog in the act, and turning it into art.

Lessard’s 5-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, Kaya, was already a food-stealing pro, having hijacked a few photo-shoots, when Jess decided to include the pup in her art.

The result… an adorable photo series of a hungry dog. Or, perhaps Kaya is just really into food styling. Either way, we’d say “bad dog,” but, how could you stay made at this face?
