Homer Simpson Statue Made From Junk Food

Whether picking up a six-pack of Duff, or looking for something in an ‘after-dinner burrito,’ Homer Simpson usually finds what he’s looking for at the Kwik-E-Mart.

So, if you’re going to create a food statue of the Simpson’s patriarch, it should consist of the kinds of stuff you’d find at Apu’s convenience store.

Brought to us by Mandatory.com, the tribute to Homer is made from mini powdered doughnuts, marshmallows, vanilla meringues, black licorice, melted taffy, various forms of gummies, and cotton candy. Mmm… Statuey.

Models Covered in Sweets Test The Boundaries of What’s Sexy and Hunger-Inducing

Attractive and well-lit models always make for a successful photo shoot. As does some yummy food, styled to perfection. But when combining the two… how far can this be taken before your photos are void of sexuality and no longer make the viewer hungry?

Photographer Keith Allen Phillips recently tested these boundaries, with Messy — a photo series that merges the inherent sexuality of an attractive model with some well-placed junk foods.

By combining the two — in some cases making the models unrecognizable — we’re left to wonder if this series is still sexy, hunger-inducing, or just plain gratuitous. Thoughts?

The Snackpack is a Backpack Made Entirely of Junk Food

If the kids are looking for a delicious new backpack, the concept of the Snackpack is here to help.

Created by food-blogger Christina Guan, the yummy carrying apparatus is created entirely with junk food. Even the straps, which are fruit chews taped together.

It will certainly help keep the kids from getting hungry during the day. Although, it might encourage them to wear their backpack backwards.

Oreo, who appears to be on some sort of mission to stuff every flavor imaginable in their cookies, is now offering Root Beer Float Oreos.

Not much info is available yet on where to find the new Oreos. But a safe bet is that they’ll pop up in your local Wal-Mart, as most of these specialty flavors do.

When Jesus Shows Up In Food

Jesus is omnipresent. At least that’s what we’re taught in Sunday school. And, if we’re to believe that Jesus is everywhere, then it only makes sense that he would occasionally make an appearance in our favorite foods.

Here are a few examples of Jesus showing up unexpectedly while people are simply trying to enjoy lunch. And remember, if you’d like to intentionally print Jesus on your food, we’ve got you covered.

Grilled Cheese

Frying Pan

Kit-Kat

Banana

Marmite

Potato Chip
