Space Stats is a handy infographic that represents each planet as a fruit. The result, Earth is a cherry tomato — while the biggest planet, Jupiter, is a cumbersome watermelon. Pluto, of course, was recently downgraded to a pit.

Cartoonist Josh Hara likes Starbucks. He also likes the blank canvas that their coffee cups provide for his comics.

His Instagram project, #100CoffeeCups, looks to place a comic on 100 coffee cups. The comics are not only creative and a wonderful use of white space, but are hilarious enough to brighten up anyone’s morning. Unless you don’t drink coffee, in which case, there is no hope for you.

Keep up with the series here.

If you listen closely to food being fried, it sounds like “awesome” being repeated over and over. In English, we refer to this sound as “sizzle.” But what is the sound of frying referred to in other languages?

James Chapman has the answer, and has brought us The Sound of Frying in Other Languages. For example, in China, you could listen to bacon “zizi,” or an egg “tsss” in Estonia. Either way, awesomeness is still going on in that pan. Enjoy, World!
