Realistic Popeye Shows Us What Really Happens When You Eat A Whole Can of Spinach

realistic-popeye

Popeye, the squinty-eyed large-forearmed sailor man, is probably best known for his love of spinach. However, in this video from The Pete Holmes Show, we’re given a realistic take on what would happen if someone ate an entire can of pre-cooked spinach.

We won’t give the ending away… But let’s just say that the outcome is definitely easier to believe than Popeye being able to beat up Bluto, or when Popeye turns his corncob pipe into a blowtorch. Please enjoy.

Fart Code, An App That Scans Foods To Determine Its Fart Power

fart-code

Sure, you could easily scan your food to find out its caloric and gluten content. But what if you’re a conscience shopper who monitors your foods’ gaseous properties?

Fart Code is a handy little mobile app that’ll scan the bar code of foods, and let you know the amount of flatulence you could expect from them. Although this seems a bit childish, Fart Code actually uses a sophisticated algorithm to determine how toxic a fart would be, based on the food’s ingredients.

The fartometer, as it’s called, then gives you a rating and appropriate fart noise and vibration. Just remember, that your iPhone on ‘silent,’ could be deadly.

Heads up… The video contains NSFW language, food porn, and teeth-chattering bass. Enjoy.

Watch These People Try Coca-Cola For The First Time

trying-coke

Believe it or not, there are people who’ve actually been living under rocks, that have never tried a Coca-Cola.

Brought to us by BuzzFeed Video, the excuses from these people — who are indeed full-grown Americans – range anywhere from having a mom who was very strict about sugar, to being a Pepsi purist. Not all of them having grown up in a strange cult, as we assumed also.

The reactions to their first Coke experience then range from being absolutely horrified, to the same child-like enthusiasm you’d expect from someone who was denied sugar their entire life… Or, just having escaped a cult. Enjoy.
