When shopping for meat at the supermarket, it’s easy enough to grab whatever the “Manager’s Special” is, and to not pay much attention to exactly what parts you’re buying.

Corella, a small meat and cheese store in Spain, commissioned Fauna to rethink their brand. With fun and education in mind, the minimalist packaging provides a handy diagram of what part of the animal you’ll be buying.

Even the cheeses will make you smarter. Just in case you didn’t know the type of animal it comes from from, and where on its body. Perhaps sometimes it’s best not to know.

Little did we know that Americans aren’t the only ones who make non-sensical sounds when eating. The International Sounds of Eating, by James Chapman, covers the utterances of various countries.

And speaking of Americans… We were under the impression that our eating sounded more like, “mmerfle, morf, morf, blibb, blibb, blibb.” However, Chapman is currently working on a PhD in physics, so we’ll take his word for it.

If you’d like to lighten the mood at your next fancy dinner party, you might consider taking a cue from Calamityware by artist Don Moyer.

Using a set of dishware given to him by his great-grandparents as inspiration, Moyer added elements such as giant robots and UFOs to the tranquil willow-patterned themes. Hopefully your stuffy friends have a sense of humor.
