Artist Adds A New Dimension To Starbucks Cup Art


We’ve certainly seen our share of coffee cup art… especially artists taking liberties with the Starbucks mermaid.

South Korean artist Soo Min Kim takes the medium of disposable coffee cup art a step further, by compromising the cup itself, and having a little fun with the ubiquitous mermaid.

The Sound of Frying in Other Languages


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!

Artist Creates Fake Coffee Brands That We Wish Existed


Disposable coffee cups have become quite the canvas for inspired art. Now, Russian illustrator Illarion Gordon takes coffee cup art to another level, creating fictitious coffee brands, while toying with our caffeine-addicted minds.

Coffee shops such as Coffee Time and Atomic Coffee will surely have us skipping the little green mermaid. As long as they provide our soy lattes… can’t live without those.

See more of Gordon’s work over at Instagram.

How A Bean Becomes A Fart, In Cute Animation Form


Sure, the reason why beans make us fart is very scientific. But, lucky for us, the creative folks at Giant Ant have explained it in terms we can all understand, via an adorable animation.

How A Bean Becomes A Fart starts at the very beginning, and takes us on the bean’s entire journey through the eater — inevitably winding up in gaseous form.

Now… Is there a cartoon to help explain why the silent ones are indeed the deadliest?
