How To Cook Canned Ravioli With A Volcano

lava-ravioli

YouTube member lavapix makes it a habit of placing contained food items alongside an active volcano — just to see what happens.

Next on the menu, canned ravioli. Now, does the can of Chef Boyardee actually cook? We’re not sure, as it just explodes all over the place.

On second thought, perhaps this should have been titled, “How Not To Cook Canned Ravioli With A Volcano.” My bad.

As kids, we always assumed that the “Non-Toxic” claim on a can of Play-Doh was nothing but a dare. However, as seen in the video Edible Sweet Art, there are still grown adults who claim to have never tried to eat the ‘edible’ dough.

Hipsters Love Beer, A Video That Throws Shade At The Craft Beer Movement

hipsters-beer

Craft beer is slowly becoming the new wine… In terms of douchebaggery. And, unsurprisingly, hipsters appear to be leading the charge.

Hipsters Love Beer is brought to us by Nacho Punch. The comedy group’s main target is the unfortunate hipster and their unbearable pretentiousness. However, craft beer itself is also thrown little shade — with its abundance of flavor profiles that give hipsters ample opportunity to use adverbs. Please watch…
